I got nothing against Ernie. I suppose.
2001-12-19 04:44:48 PM  
Best use of the Hero tag. Great story!
2001-12-19 04:45:23 PM  
Screw you Bert!
2001-12-19 04:47:07 PM  
total hero. Go ernie!
2001-12-19 04:47:48 PM  
Wow, that's a hell of a lot of money. At fifrst it sounded like it was only going to be a couple of people going home for Christmas. Great job Ernie!
2001-12-19 04:48:26 PM  
That's awesome Ernie!!

Hero indeed.

farking bank hasn't sent my replacement check card yet...bastards...

2001-12-19 05:27:17 PM  
hmm... $13,000, over 500 donations... but only 2 verified buyers through paypal. How does that work. *cough* bullshiat *cough*

Ernie licked my dog's asshole
for six hours once. (The dog has
no legs, you see....)
2001-12-19 05:59:08 PM  
I guess with all the bad press Bert's been getting lately, Ernie had to make up for it somehow. (shhhh... I hear they're gay!)
2001-12-19 05:59:39 PM  
subigo.. you dont have to be a verified member to use paypal...
2001-12-19 06:20:58 PM  
tightpants: I know... but do you seriously believe that out of 500+ people that "donated" that only 2 of them were verified? By the way, on the first day he started this he had those 2 verified buyers, so out of 500+ donations NOT ONE was verified?

Sounds like crap to me. Sign up and give me my referal bonus!... give me a link on fark!... give me more hits!... and if I manage to get any money, well, nobody will know if I keep it!

Why doesnt he post the names of all the people that donated?
2001-12-19 06:29:49 PM  
Subigo, stop being such a farkin cynic. He'll get it.
2001-12-19 07:20:47 PM  
You know what's sad.....Ernie doesn't smoke weed.
I bet if he sold weed he'd make more than 13,000, and some new friends.
2001-12-19 07:25:14 PM  
Subigo: I have highlighted the paragraph that explains how the verified buyers count works. In the future just ask a question instead of accusing other people and risk looking foolish.
I probably screwed the html and look foolish, too.

I say it is shiat
2001-12-19 09:14:21 PM  
And we all say YOU are shiat. Skeptical bastage.
2001-12-19 09:24:17 PM  
Anyone want a candy cane?
2001-12-19 09:27:02 PM  
Subigo: Pull your head out of your a*s.
2001-12-19 09:42:51 PM  
Listen up you Motherfarkers!!!

It is because of Ernie that 6 (I said 6) of my people, along with their families, will have a Merry Christmas! I have a guy in Florida that was denied leave due to the mission. You know what Ernie did? He frickin' flew this poor guy's 2 kids round trip to Florida!
So, if you don't believe that this is for real, go fark yourself!

Ernie, I can't wait for next year to do it all over again.

2001-12-19 10:11:03 PM  
SubigoOK. Have a seat in the corner, please.

What is the harm in a little bit of optimism?

Oyster: I could go for a candycane.
2001-12-19 10:50:19 PM  
OK, I am starting the same drive! Send all your donations to me and I will send soldiers home for the holidays!
2001-12-19 11:07:26 PM  
I say that is shiat.
2001-12-19 11:25:28 PM  
Well, that's just a sweet little story if I ever heard one. . .
2001-12-20 12:33:39 AM  
I think it's a great thing Ernie's doing. It's nice to give thanks to the people that keep us free.
2001-12-20 01:43:11 AM  
Is that a tear in my eye??

A well deserved "hero" tag for Ernie

Oh and for Subigo I got your donation right here, buddy.
2001-12-20 01:53:58 AM  
we've cleared $13,247 and have been able to purchase 23 confirmed tickets


WTG Ernie, good work!
2001-12-20 02:00:44 AM  
If there has EVER been a need of the *hero* tag this is it.
2001-12-20 02:06:10 AM  
Oh, WTG = "Way To Go", just so ya know =)

Congrats again Ernie! This rocks!
