Dr. Raoult Ratard, Louisiana's state epidemiologist.

There's a joke in there somewhere.

I don't get it.  Why wouldn't we be affected?

Because we're not stupid enough to swim in stagnant water.

I love the irony of calling a group stupid, and that hacky-ass joke is that best ya got...

Really? Watch out at the next zebra crossing there subby.
 
2013-09-20 09:24:41 AM
hah that's great! Don't get angry liberals, get an article greenlit and get even :D

simkatu: I don't get it.  Why wouldn't we be affected?


Because we don't snort swamp water?

the only danger is to people who manage to get the microscopic organism way up their noses.
 
2013-09-20 09:24:53 AM

simkatu: I don't get it.  Why wouldn't we be affected?


Because liberals don't put Louisiana water in our noses straight from the tap.

In before happy amoeba.

None of those who died recently down here used Neti pots. One was a 4 yr old playing on a slip n slide using municipal water.

StopDaddy: I love the irony of calling a group stupid, and that hacky-ass joke is that best ya got...


I lament the lack of creativity and wealth of blind vitriol that takes the premise, something completely apolitical, and says "Hey, let's make a liberal "joke" because it's funny because liberals are dumb." It doesn't work thematically or geographically in any way. It's a non-sequiteur with no payoff.

"Saints fans remain unaffected." That works, it's a sports joke, and I don't even farking know sports beyond the name of the team.

Heck, you really want to make a political joke? How about one that ties into the subject.

"Mary Landrieu unaffected." Bam. There. The same political dig, but it actually makes sense.

I'm not offended by insults to liberals, I'm offended by shiatty humor.

Unexpected consequence: not funny/clever headline spurs responses who think it's clever/funny, making thread funny.

Actually, a saline mixture is the best way to do it. And don't use water from the tap. It's really no different than a non-medicated nasal spray for helping sinuses drain.

How delightfully tacky.good job.

A brain eating bacteria sounds like a pretty horrible way to go. Hope they get this cleared up quick

This is true, one must first have a brain to have one's brain eaten.

I kind help but think the admin that green-lit this thought it was slamming conservatives.

Chlorine levels were too low.

That stuff is like fluoride! Probably a LIBERAL conspiracy! Death Panels!

If subby had said "Republican" instead of "liberal", this would be the funniest headline ever. However, because he chose to pick on liberals, I'm feeling a burning pain in my nether regions!! HOW DARE YOU SUBBY!!??

That was lame, even from someone with termites in their skull.

Hmm, I wonder in diseases like these, when a liberal gets it.. do they become conservative right after the insomnia starts, but before hallucinations set in? Or after.

I didn't get angry. I was amused. I like teasing as it relieves "dynamic tension." ;-)

I'm surprised the liberals on Fark allowed that one, but it's pretty funny!

It's a neti pot. A gadget for doing a nasal lavage. It rinses pollen, dust, and other allergy triggers from the nasal cavities, and help ease sinus pain and pressure. You can get relief from nasal and sinus congestion without having to take drugs.
I use the squeeze-bottle version.

sno man: Son of Thunder: Butthurt liberals are butthurt.

Well trolled, submeister.

Are we reading the same thread?


The Teabaggers on this site often confuse "Gee, this is stupid.  Next!" with "ZOMG THE BUTTHURTZ".

I'd argue that it was due to a lack of intelligence on their part, but that kind of humor is beneath us.

It actually makes so much sense that I'm starting to feel sorry for Mary Landrieu.  Never thought that would happen.
