Texas Gabe: ReapTheChaos: Texas Gabe: ReapTheChaos: Texas Gabe: And another thing, I guess a sappy story is license to rip off a headline and get a green.

/being that guy

Who cares?

Half the headlines on here come directly from the article themselves. You act as if this is some serious news site or something.

I think you're forgetting a fundamental aspect of this site.

What, to come up with funny headlines? For one thing, not every story is going to lend itself to that. Second. most of what gets greened aren't funny anyway. Between the obvious troll headlines and the ones who's format gets used ad nauseum like "Pro tip..." " Good:  Bad: Fark:" and the multiple choice where the answer is always C, it gets to a point where you don't even pay attention to them anymore.

I come here to read and comment on interesting news stories, if someone occasionally comes up with a clever headline to go along with one then that's great but at the end of the day the headlines are of little consequence.

Which is why FARK is less FARK-like everyday. Why don"t you go over to CNN.com or MSNBC.com or some other "serious" news site and let us get back to trying to write funny headlines, which is THE WHOLE DAMN POINT OF THE SITE.

Well, I entirely disagree.

There are a huge number of people here with an immense amount of collective experience and knowledge.

While I may come here without serious intent, I am often happily surprised at the bouts of serious and thoughtful discussion which sometimes break out in the comments.

I am not kidding.

I never said one thing about the comments or discussions, which I agree are everything you said they are. I was talking specifically about funny headline generation, which as I said is the entire point of this website.

I mostly come for the informative and erudite conversations.  That and the fart jokes.

How have so many recent threads turned into a pissing match between two assholes that have nothing to do with the original topic?
