I want to join these guys just so I can get a business card that says:

Sphinx16
President, STFU
 
2004-04-06 05:28:54 PM
Sphinx, me too, though I'm thinking along the lines of a bumper sticker or something else that can be displayed prominently.

Before they changed their name, there was a group named the Furman University Christian Knights.

They need to start selling T-Shirts (if they don't already, I didn't RTFA). It'd be bigger than the FCUK shirts.
 
2004-04-07 12:53:45 AM
I wonder if they make buttons or t-shirts; something like "Celebrating 36 years of STFU."

They should team up with the National Observatory Omission Board. Then they could have the STFU NOOB convention.
/ill quit making up Organizations now.

There was a college in Wichita, KS called

Friends University of Central Kansas

until they changed the name.

2004-04-07 01:17:19 AM

Does anybody have the incriminating photo of Sam Walls in a dress?

in league with the MILF
 
2004-04-07 01:34:49 AM
Not everything gets posted, even good articles that you think should. There are a number of reasons why it might not, but rather than explain them I shall instead keep with the theme of this thread are refer you to the graphics telling you to STFU.
 
2004-04-07 01:35:22 AM
Stand proud if you were once a member of the Church Of Christ Kids group.
 
2004-04-07 01:35:30 AM
did this get submitted soley for the acronym?
 
2004-04-07 01:48:27 AM
The Southern Tenant Farmers' Union (STFU), a biracial union of sharecroppers, tenant farmers, and small landowners, came into existence in the cotton plantation country of Arkansas in July, 1934, under the leadership of a group of socialists, including H.L. Mitchell and Howard Kester.

heh. kickass.
 
2004-04-07 01:51:41 AM
i actually found out about this not even a month ago. i found it in my history textbook while researching for a paper, but i had no idea it still existed.
 
2004-04-07 02:06:08 AM
stoofoo
 
2004-04-07 02:55:54 AM
I'm sure when the members of STFU have a meeting, they all enjoy a nice cup of... coffee.
 
2004-04-07 03:29:29 AM
GOD DAMN Hilarious threads on fark tonight
 
2004-04-07 03:33:02 AM
There's also WTF if you're interested in Taekwondo.
 
2004-04-07 06:04:11 AM
Did anyone else think it odd that the STFU's records are all maintained at Cornell University?

--on the other hand, having lived in Ithaca for a short while and there having met more than my share of godless Commies, I suppose it's not all that odd.
 
2004-04-07 08:40:21 AM
Fun stuff. I should mention that to my fiancee, who got reprimanded at work yesterday. Apparently during a moment of free time, a co-worker sent out an e-mail message to all the folks in the department which read;

"Holy sh**! Idle time in the queue!"

Another fellow responded with;

"WTF r u talking about?"

She apparently ended up taking the bait and responded with the ever so witty;

"STFU! LOL! OMG Zerg rush!"

...but apparently the first fellow ended up CCing all the supervisors. Cue all three of them ending up getting a write-up... for... uh... an asterisked out swearword, and another one abbreviated down to a single letter? Apparently the use of a SINGLE LETTER is not appropriate in the workplace. And a supervisor apparently made a comment that "they'd hate to lose her over something like this".

Guess I'll have to tell her to make sure that any time she uses the STFU abbreviation from now on, she makes absolutely certain that she states the fact that this four letter acronym signifies her respect for the Southern Tenant Farmer's Union.

Holy crap, my history class just got through with the Great Depression era, and a couple weeks ago our professor mentioned the Southern Tenant Farmers Union. He proceeded to write STFU on the board, and then he had no idea why half the class couldn't stop laughing.
 
2004-04-07 10:15:50 AM
or maybe fark.

Hey, the link is from OCLC! w00t! Librarians unite! ;)

OCLC.org (the listed source for this link) is a huge organization that coordinates inter-library lending. It's pretty cool.

/random fact
 
2004-04-07 07:04:46 PM
Photon: Furman's mascot isn't the Christian Knights. Well sort of. They are the Paladins. A Paladin is one of the 12 peers of Charlemagne. The crowd does yell "FU!" at football games, especially after a bad call by the officials. I should know, they whipped our ass in football this year.

/Go Chattannooga!
