Yesterday, Drew was asking me about some of the most epic threads on Fark. Talking to the TFers I got links for them and I was thinking that we should have some sort of Hall of Fame on Fark that has not only the Headline of the Year winners, but also some of those infamous threads. Not just the greenlit ones, either, we have plenty of incredible threads that never made the main page (in fact, more of those than greenlit threads). We could also include some of the threads that spawned memes on their own, like UFIA, and I Work For/Getting a Kick Out of This Reply, and Likely To Have Trouble When the Oil Hits the Anus. Those all came out of specific threads, and it might be nice to have those set aside somewhere.

Anyway, here are this week's headlines for ya.

Dammit. I've been trying to search every word I can think of, but I canNOT find the thread where the Farker whose name I can't remember was looking for advice on how to politely thwart the romantic advances of the girl with Down's at his work. We all merrily derped and horked our way to hell in that thread.

calbert: Organic Chemistry: "Talking to the TFers I got links for them..."

Was there a TFD link for this thread, or was this in chat?

yesterday (9-19) am TFD thread, can't link to it because it is red..

"Does anybody have links to Fark's most epic threads"


Not all of them, but I have links to roughly a dozen or so. I can't post some of them here because they were never greenlit.

You can't force a thread to be epic. It just has to happen.

I blame that on bad linking, I wasn't asking a question, that was the title of the redlit TFD thread. I linked to it, but then didn't want to get in trouble for linking to a red thread, so I deleted the link, but left the title in. sorry.

;)
