Please consider the environment before printing this NotNewsletter.
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.
