N. Korea threatening to destroy S. Korea over some perceived slight? It must be a day ending in "y".

Pfft.  I did that once and had to appear before a judge.


Still don't know how they found out it was me.

The only good response is to fax a photocopy of their buttocks back to them.

Did I miss a memo? Isn't this a repeat?

/and I'm not buying toner, Fark, so don't start faxing me toner ads

It's amazing that S. Korea even noticed it between the "stock tips" and "vacation offers" that arrive via fax.

Worst Korea should fax back a note thanking them for the notice of the noticeless strike.
 
2013-12-20 11:44:51 AM
Wouldn't that fax technically constitute notice?
 
2013-12-20 11:46:17 AM
Wait, wouldn't that mean South Korea would also have a fax machine to receive said fax?

No, I have a response much worse.... 100 pages worth of black construction paper.

Looks like the Fark office party started a little early this year. Stay away from the brown eggnog, guys.

A what?

Oh, fax machine. I was going to say, I didn't think Un would share his fat machine with anyone.

Time to sign North Korea up for some weekly travel discounts.

Again?  That's two faxes now.  This is getting cereal.

Fark you, enviro-asshole tree-killer!

Everyone knows, you're supposed to use just 2-3 sheets, taped into a loop.
 
2013-12-20 11:48:24 AM
They should totally leave nasty message on NK's BBS forums.  That'll learn 'em.
 
2013-12-20 11:48:32 AM
Rodman has already been deported?
 
2013-12-20 11:49:33 AM
Did they practice safe fax and use a cover sheet?
 
2013-12-20 11:49:38 AM
So south Korea is going to become an island nation.

We still have a fax machine hooked up because some of our vendors are pretty low-tech. The fax spam outnumbers actual correspondences most days.

Yes this does work.  So does making a loop that says PENIS PENIS PENIS over and over

Guess they had to send a repeat since the first one got lost in the internets from earlier today.

Tired of hearing about it, can we just get it over with?

'Fraid so. When I first moved here, I was given a number that (it turns out) was in what used to be the fax block of our local area code. I got far more fax spam than email spam, and being on the Do Not Call list didn't do very much. I eventually wound up having to ask for a new number.

I guess South Korea left off one crate of rice on their last shipment.

Really?  Where abouts, is it a business fax line, how old is it, etc etc.

Our office fax line is pretty old and the number is fairly widely distributed (ie, easy for telemartekers to get a hold of it) and we only seem them every few months at best.

From my earlier post: "'Fraid so. When I first moved here, I was given a number that (it turns out) was in what used to be the fax block of our local area code. I got far more fax spam than email spam, and being on the Do Not Call list didn't do very much. I eventually wound up having to ask for a new number. "

The where: Eastern Canada. Residential number (but from the old block of numbers the local Telco used to reserve for dedicated fax lines). I'm on the Do Not Call list (and have been since the day my phone was first hooked up). I asked for the new number a year ago, I think.

Oh.  Wonder if that's mainly just a Canadian thing now?  Seems just about all but dead here in the US.

Prof. Frink: Everyone knows, you're supposed to use just 2-3 sheets, taped into a loop.


Ah, my second most favorite fax prank.

My favorite is from back in the days when fax machines used a spool of special thermal paper instead of toner, and had built in paper cutter to slice the sheet at the end of each received page.

I had recently purchased one of the first V.92 Faxmodems, so I went into Wordperfect, set the page length to 0.08 inches, held down "insert page break"  (Ctrl + Enter) to insert a hundred or so page breaks, then hit 'Send Fax' and put in the number of my neighbor down the hall (MBA student who was oh-so-proud of his personal fax machine).

Walk over, and his machine is going "whirrr... CHOP! whirrr... CHOP!" as it feeds one line and then cuts it free.   He's looking kind of perplexed, so I ask him what's wrong?   He says "I'm receiving this fax, but it's just coming out in little pieces like this.", and holds up a pile of paper strips.  So I reply "Well obviously it must be a secure fax from the government".  He looks at me, looks at the strips of paper in his hand, and inquires "What makes you think it's from the government?".

I pick up one of the strips, and say "It's pre-shredded".
