Trolling can be an art form, but this is just stupid. The original prank seemed funny, but this is just pathetic.
 
2014-07-29 01:03:23 AM  
Oh f*ck. I can think of exactly one person that might actually sign me up for this.
 
2014-07-29 08:02:14 AM  
If it wouldn't eventually get me in trouble, I know a few people that this would be awesome for.

Seems like an appropriate punishment for telemarketers.  Too bad the cowards are impossible to identify.
 
2014-07-29 09:51:27 AM  
If anyone ever signed me up for this and I found out who it was, I would punch them in the groin until they died.

Oh gods.  Either Kittypie has signed all of Fark up for this, or her phone blew up hours ago and her cell company's servers are running out of memory with the backlog, I don't know which.

Unlike humans, cats do not need to blink their eyes on a regular basis to keep their eyes lubricated.

I did the Cat Facts prank to my boss a few years ago. He was waiving his arms in a fury and passing his cell around the office in a futile attempt to find someone who could make it stop. It. Was. Magical.

Hey look this number is annoying me?  Man, I really wish that they had a simple block function that is accessible right in the area where you view the message.  I guess that's just too complicated to create and hasn't been in existence for at least a decade.

Couldn't do it on here even if you tried. On Fark, the filters detect numbers formatted like USA telephone numbers beginning with known area codes. Here, I'll enter my phone number and it'll show up as all x'es: XXX-XXX-XXXX

CSB: There was a guy on Twitter that would send any number pictures of Golddust (the wrestler) if you put up someone's phone number, and then post the reactions on the internet. My buddy signed me up for that while we were watching hockey one night and instead of being pissed/scared, I wanted to be best friends with the guy.
 
2014-07-29 10:23:41 AM  
I'd prank my wife with this but she'd absolutely love it, and I'd be flat broke in an hour.

Reddit rapes the internet, again.
 
2014-07-29 10:37:10 AM  
This reminds me of the heady days of hourly Cat Threads on TF. Some people would go in and laugh, some people would see the headline and just pass it by (because there were no bait and switch headlines, they were all quite honest about being cat threads) and then some people would go in to the threads totally unglued. It was so magnificent to watch that I would submit a couple a day when it looked like things were slowing down.

In fact, cats, unlike humans, tend not to use lube at all.

By the way. . .there were cat facts printed on the bottom of the can.

As easy as putting instructions on how to swim at the bottom of a pool

Cats tongues are scratchy because they're covered in coarse hairs.  This is an evolutionary adaptation that allowed wild cats to more completely and cleanly lick meat from the bones of their prey.

You're all thinking about this wrong, in order to make something truly hilarious this is what you need to do. First I should specify that the app is free if you use your own phone number (it only cost money when you block your number).  So instead of you sending cat facts to people you know, instead post their numbers online and get random strangers on the internet to sign them up for cat facts.

Which is funnier; receiving cat facts every hour from someone you know, or watching your boss have a complete meltdown because they're receiving cat facts from 20 different numbers an hour?

/I'm going with the second option, because it's crueler.

Holy shiat.  Someone actually went through the trouble of making a Professor Genki car?   ...meh.  I know it's supposed to be a parody of a Japanese game show, but they're nowhere near that tame.

Thank you for using Cat Fax.

Upgrades in version 1.13.1:  less noise when faxing cats, Beta Dog Fax (small dogs only), Cat Scanner.

strangeluck: Trolling can be an art form


Saying stupid shiat just to get a reaction is not art, it's reaching for the low-hanging fruit; it's just too easy.

but this is just stupid.

On that I'll agree.
