Bootsy is president?  Dig!  Hello, restoration of NASA's funding for manned spaceflight!

hb0mb: Can this style of headline die already?


Of all the uninspired and unfunny headline memes Fark has produced over the years, one that actually has the capacity for creative, absurd comedy is the one that everyone hates the most...

I'm not sure what that says about the human condition, but it possibly explains the popularity of sh*tty chain restaurants and John Tesh.

When I was a kid, my parents had a couple of Parliament-Funkadelic records around, I was fascinated by the album art.  The liner notes and the weird poems or whatever that they wrote were really strange.

With David Ruffin as head of the DEA, I'm sure we'll be able to get high enough.

I can see Bootsy as president, what with all the concerted efforts to keep Clinton out of the White House.

Perhaps some people are angry because it's shining too bright a light onto how absurd their O SO SRUS political bullshiat really is.

It's hard to have a good two minute hate when someone's standing to the side waving their dick about.

Slim Whitman just passed away a few days ago. Too bad we didn't have a memorial thread for him here....

This administration is sorely lacking in funk.

Because it's rarely creative or comedic?

Absurd, yes.

Especially considering that BBC Radio made a big deal about it reporting it every hour on the hour with a bio and bits of his songs. Apparently, he kept some popularity in the UK even after he was forgotten in the states.

/Even I was "Slim who?"... then a bit of song, and "Oh yeah! I remember that guy."

Pants full of macaroni!!: This administration is sorely lacking in funk.


And we, The American People, WANT the funk. It is sad that "The One" has not put on "ON the One". Perhaps if he would put some bopguns and flashlights on those drones instead.

Indeed. He lived just a dozen miles down the road from here, in Middleburg, at a place he called 'Woodpecker Paradise'. If it wouldn't be seen as ghoulish or tasteless, I was considering visiting the home and giving my condolences. I still have a number of his albums.

Say what you like, but that man could croon.

The real Jeffrey had some fun with it. As did people editing his wikipedia entry. From TFA:

As the excitement grew, the singer's Wikipedia entry was amended to reflect his new status. For a brief period it said: "As of June 2013 [he] is the Chancellor of the Exchequer and Second Lord of the Treasury of the UK."

David Ruffin could hardly be a worse DEA administrator than any of the ones we've had, given that he's been dead since 1991.

Still makes me laugh, but maybe I'm simple.

Man, that was neither clever, nor original, nor relevant, nor funny.

What you've just posted ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever seen. At no point in your rambling, incoherent post were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having seen to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul...
