Another FARK Born™ meme in action.

Gary Coleman lived a short life.
 
2010-06-01 02:21:12 PM  
I'm looking forward to seeing what a Palin-American graphic meme might look like.
 
2010-06-01 02:23:04 PM  
Here I sit, stuck in Liter land. It is like I am in the twilight zone.
 
2010-06-01 02:24:56 PM  
Barnacles!: Gary Coleman lived a short life.

But he was always looking up.

I still don't get it. Does that mean TFers are fat?

Why did Gary Coleman always laugh while playing soccer?

I just don't have my credit card info at work, I will renew when I get home.

It is better behind the velvet rope.

I like the Twilight & Palin-American ones, although the latter has no life outside of Fark.
 
2010-06-01 02:57:17 PM  
I had to read the comments to get the bee headline, but when I did I LOL'd.

"Palin-American" might just be the dumbest thing I have ever heard/seen.

diadelsuerte: "Palin-American" might just be the dumbest thing I have ever heard/seen.

Is it somehow related to DERP?

The term is used by people that go "DERP", so yes.
 
2010-06-01 03:35:24 PM  
I still don't get the "bees" headline.

There ya go.

Also, I would like to take credit for the creation of the term. It occurred to me while driving to Baton Rouge for the UK-LSU basketball game on 2/6/10. I created this graphic when I got home 2 days later.

/yes, my 'shop skills suck, thanks for noticing

How young? I just turned 22 last month and I got it. My advice would be to brush up on your Simpsons quotes.

/At what age am I issued the onion for my belt?

One of my co-workers was just telling me how proud his toddler was to have gone poopy in the potty. The similarities abound.

That Concorde headline is awesome.

You can have one of mine. They kinda taste like poop, though.
