It doesn't work
2001-12-07 01:35:59 PM  
'Amusing' tag lies.
Typical farker complains:
"Change tag to 'stupid'."
2001-12-07 01:42:29 PM

2001-12-07 01:50:46 PM  
Don't you think
2001-12-07 01:56:39 PM  
Wasted time of my life.
Someone owes me two minutes.
That web site really sucked.
- - - - - - - - - -
I can not believe.
Someone thought it was "amusing" shiat.
Good enough to post here.
- - - - - - - - - -
Wasted time of my life.
Yet Drew approved the posting.
What the hell went wrong.
2001-12-07 01:58:15 PM  
Whine? Complain, do you?
Could have upped the E-bay bid.
Rule Fark, you posers.

If they're for Japanese computers, they'd be in Japanese, and not be 5-7-5 in English.

The Japanese language is structured very differently. You may find that to express one meaning, it takes far less words in japanese, and another, far more. Things like no future tense, but varying probability tenses can really change things up, as an example ;)
2001-12-07 02:04:15 PM  
rei types lots of words
but the syllables don't work
i can't understand
2001-12-07 02:06:27 PM  
the really funny thing is that if you translate a(n) haiku from Japanese to English, you get a limerick

ba-dum-dum (crash!)

For Farkers to complain
About things they view for free
confuses funky

But I agree about the popups splash
2001-12-07 02:11:18 PM  
Pop-ups burn in hell
Bandwidth sucking demon spawn

With searching comes loss

"My Novel" not found.

Hey, this sounds familiar....

Oh Man Wah Tahn Ah Siam.

Chinese for Jagoff
2001-12-07 02:26:19 PM  
Man drills for waterh
hits natural gas pocket

2001-12-07 02:31:17 PM  
Man refits kitchen!
Finds a 40 foot mineshaft,
under wobbly floor.

The crane eats fish and sings,

while the rock sits in the sun

and wishes he had wings.
2001-12-07 02:36:59 PM

Have already won.

Nobody put it yet...

2001-12-07 03:13:06 PM  
I do hate it when
Attributions are lost with

The original source for
The link that was shown
2001-12-07 03:13:14 PM  
Yes I hate pop-ups
Haikus not funny either
whoever posted, suck me
2001-12-07 03:14:52 PM  
Pop-ups are cyber-terrorism. If the shiatty links are going to be posted, they should have a pop-up warning label on them. Am I the only one that thinks this whole "The terrorists have already won" crap is getting old? I'm brand new to this site, but I've seen that so many times already it's rediculous. I hope it is a fleeting idea.
2001-12-07 03:21:35 PM  
Icehouse is off-topic

to bust your balls punk!
2001-12-07 03:25:13 PM
