FarkCast

In the most recent FarkCast, Drew and Twitch talk about Drew's run for governor and how to best insult Drew's opponents using Old English slang. The term "goobersmooch" is brought up, and seems to be the most fitting. They also discuss commenters from Yahoo stories, craft beer, and why the Germans are so literal. You can get FarkCast on iTunes, FarkCast on Stitcher, or get FarkCast here.

Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by Unfreakable)

Some weeks it's the hunters, other weeks it's the wolves. This week, despite the best efforts of the quizmasters, the Farkers were ready for the quiz (and how) and the scores reflected that:  rick42 led the pack with 1037, narrowly shading the top spot this week just three points ahead of  humanconditioner who posted a 1034 which would win nearly any other week, while  wildcardjack barely edged  Crass and Jaded Mother Farker by three points, 989 to 986. There's room for better scores--highest theoretical score is 1100--so if you think you can beat them, go get your name on the list--give last Friday's quiz a shot here: Fark Weird News Quiz - August 21.

Yeah, the good ones slip through sometimes. I was also sad that this one from bearded clamorer didn't make it.

As it relates to pumpkin spice, I have a story...

I went for coffee the other morning.  They didn't have my usual Irish Creme flavor there at the coffee station.  At first I was disappointed.  Then I noticed the reason it was missing.  It had been replaced by Pumpkin Spice flavor!!!

I do not want the summer to end.  It's not that I don't really like autumn or anything.  I just don't like winter.  But pumpkin spice coffee does help to soften the blow that it is going to happen no matter what.

I'm actually somewhat confused about why they bother to take the pumpkin spice away in the spring.  It's not like they use real pumpkins in it anyway...

Pumpkin spice in the spring is like wearing white shoes after labor day.
