Fark NotNewsletter: Offer not valid in Denver or Oakland

A message from Drew Curtis:  
________________________ 

Thanks to all the TotalFarkers who dropped by Office Hours on Friday to take a look at Fark's ad unit.  Sounds like we're good to go. BareFark subscribers will not see the ad, so if you'd like to remain blissfully unaware that we're launching an ad unit that will jump off your screen and follow you around for the rest of the day, sign up and you'll never see it.  I'm kidding the ad won't actually jump off your screen. Offer not valid in Denver or Oakland.

This week's Fark and Schnitt Podcast dropped this morning.  Todd and I go over the ingenious funeral for an Irish prankster, how everything at Panera probably comes in a bag, and why you will NOT be pulling $50 THC edibles out of your kids' Halloween bags this year.  Offer not valid in Denver or Oakland. Also, all about the guy who left bad Yelp reviews for local farmers who wouldn't let him have relations with their livestock.

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)

Another fun time on the Quiz, where we determined that sometimes engineers likely do have to work on the cars they design. On the Quiz itself, hunh came out on top with 970, followed by cretinbob,  DrunkenGator, and coscausticevil in a three-way tie for second with 924. Twonk made third with 920, BigChad takes fourth with 910, and Redh8t finishes out the top five with 904.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over fashion retailer Bonobos and what major retailer had driven it to layoffs only two years after purchasing it for $300 million. Only 24% of quiztakers knew that this was Walmart's ploy to get into the hip new casual online shopping experience that kids today are looking for. Unfortunately, it just didn't seem to mesh with their usual line of cheap Chinese-made patterns and Duck Dynasty wear. Who knew that slapping a Walmart label on something would make it less appealing outside the Southeastern US?

The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over the Libra Association and how it's collapsing faster than that penny cryptocurrency pumped by your least favorite social media influencer. 78% of quiztakers knew that Facebook no longer had any kind of payment processor for their foray into the world of digital dollars. You've got to know something's up with this scheme when payment processors don't want to be a part of "give me money in exchange for this really long number".

One other note - 51% of quiztakers got the question about Hanson correct. I don't have a joke for that, just wanted to point it out.

The Easy Quiz this week was Extra Easy. The hardest question was over what scientists said had caused the 2,200-mile-wide black spot on the surface of Jupiter. 58% of quiztakers knew that it was a solar eclipse - Jupiter's moon Io was blocking the sunlight and casting a shadow. Astronomers say that these are actually very common on Jupiter, but we just haven't seen it much before because we've never been quite as close as we are now with the Juno spacecraft.

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was which Eric Clapton-fronted band featured Ginger Baker on drums. 89% of quiztakers knew that it was Cream he lent his talents to, before other groups like Blind Faith and eventually even Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band. For the record, "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs" did eventually make Platinum, several years after its initial release.

If you missed the Quiz, you can catch up on the Fark Weird News Quiz here.

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll do it all again next week.

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)

Yet another fun time on the quiz, with little sympathy for my plight involving looking at the wrong eBay listing. On the quiz itself, FrancoFile takes top honors with 943, followed by BKITU in second with 920 and Denjiro in third with 910. TheMothership takes fourth with 906, and the Mole of Production finishes out the top five with 897.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over where the old recordings of John Coltrane were located that became the just-released album "Blue World". Only 28% of quiztakers knew that the recordings were originally done for the French language film Le chat dans le sac, which was kind of what passes for a romantic comedy in French. Coltrane recorded some of his standards for the film, and the recordings (along with an original print of the film), being a Canadian product, were placed in the archives of the National Film Board.in Montreal. After the usual "rights" issue where all the people involved and their heirs dicker about for who's going to make the most money off of it, we have a new Coltrane album.

The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was about which state has become the first to let student-athletes at universities get paid for the use of their image, likeness, and name. 87% of quiztakers knew that beginning in 2023, California athletes will have this option. IMHO this is a good thing for college sports, as players won't be quite as tempted to drop out of college and go pro in order to support their families. I can't wait to hear the whining about the assigned stats in licensed video games, though.

The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over which multinational conglomerate has acquired CTRL Labs and their wristbands that let you control things with "your mind" (actually tiny muscle movements - kind of like how thumbs work). Only 37% of quiztakers knew that with all the antitrust investigations surrounding Facebook, they still thought it was a good idea to branch out even farther and get rid of even more on-hand cash. When you think about it, a company that started out as a website to meet women finally saw that there was some value in wrist movements for their users who failed to do so.

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over where Petuluma, CA police spent two hours looking for a stalking suspect. 90% of quiztakers knew that the suspect lost himself in a corn maze. I'm mean, aside from the obvious "stalking" pun, there's also the cops playing it by ear and not flaking out, and finally popping the perp without assault or buttery. But enough corny jokes.

If you missed the quiz this week (and my story about Channing's Potatums), you can catch up on it here.

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing it all again next week!

Fark NotNewsletter: Here's the thing about pumpkin spice...
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2019-10-02 12:29:08 PM (84 comments) | Permalink

Now that it's October, you need to hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husband, because they're puttin' pumpkin spice on everything out here. Personally, I do not like pumpkin spice. In fact, I thought I didn't like pumpkin for most of my life, and only recently found out that I like pumpkin just fine, as long as there's none of that "pumpkin spice" on it. Similarly, I thought I hated yams until I finally had some without brown sugar and marshmallows on them. We're ruining perfectly good gourds and tubers every autumn! But you know what? I don't mind if you enjoy these things. I've had people eat them in front of me and go, "Mmmmm, this is soooo goooood" as if to mock me, but I'm happy to watch you eat all the pumpkin spice and candied yams you want, as long as you don't pin me down, hold my nose, shove the offending foods into my mouth and hold my face closed until I swallow them. 

Be right back - have to go apologize to some dogs and cats I've cared for. 

XOXO,

DisseminationMonkey

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)

Another fun time on the quiz, even though I think I set a record for typos. And I'm no longer welcome at Starbucks after trying to pay with non-Ethiopian sheepskin. On the quiz itself, Denjiro came out on top with 972, followed by ZAZ in second with 946 and Texa$ in third with 937. jaycharms made fourth with 933, and Evildog finishes out the top five with 931.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over where cellist Yo Yo Ma played a short recital while wearing a hard hat. Only 34% of quiztakers knew that he descended deep into the bowels of the largest machine ever made by human hands, and gave a reportedly moving rendition of the Prelude from Bach's Cello Suite No. 6 some 100 meters underground in the Large Hadron Collider. And yes, hard hats are mandatory there, even though no one is quite sure just how much that's going to protect you from 100 meters of solid rock, much less the transdimensional portals and stuff they open there. Quick note: the Notre Dame Cathedral still remains closed after the fire earlier this year.

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over which company mostly known for video games just celebrated its 130th birthday. 74% of quiztakers knew that Japan 1889 was a hot time for playing card games, and Nintendo quickly became popular for their hanafuda decks. Although they played around with side businesses like taxi services and love hotels (yes, those are exactly what you think), they still haven't forgotten their roots in playing cards - think Pokémon.

The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over which alumni of the 1979 film Alien worked with Blondie singer Deborah Harry on her first solo work. 49% of quiztakers recalled that Alien did in fact win an Oscar - but it was for Best Visual Effects, which meant it went to horror artist H. R. Giger and not director Ridley Scott  After doing Harry's body paint for her video, Giger hung around to watch it being filmed - and then when the director didn't show, wound up directing himself. (Side note: Although nominated 4 times, Sir Ridley Scott still has not won an Oscar).

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over which movie had enough online chatter to prompt top brass to issue a warning to US military servicemembers about the possibility of a mass shooting. 85% of quiztakers knew the concerns were over "Joker". Probably because no one really plans to see "Last Blood", as even the creator of the Rambo character has expressed disappointment in later features.

If you missed out on the Quiz, you can catch up on it here.

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll do it again next week when I'll have a nice story about putting together this week's quiz,

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Work on the Fark and Schnitt Podcast continues - we recorded a fresh episode last night.  Todd powered through a colonoscopy and a 16-hour day while I laid out my plans for the weekend now that Kentucky's speed limits have been declared unconstitutional.  Also, we added late update on the camel ball biting fiasco down in Fathead Louisiana for good measure.  I'm going to post a TotalFark discussion link later today to help us improve the podcast format, so if you've got any suggestions, pop on in - including topics, or, for that matter, suggest a Farker we should interview.  And if you're not on TotalFark, sign on up and join us!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Todd and I recorded the second beta podcast of Fark & Schnitt last night, it dropped at 5 a.m. Eastern this morning.  New episode can be found here for Apple folks, should show up on the other platforms later this morning.  It contains a really surprising/strange followup to last week's lawyer prostitute story that almost requires a Venn diagram to sort out what actually happened.  That plus strange things people have tried to file trademarks on other than "Taco Tuesday," and Antonio Brown once "had a lot of fiber" during a doctor visit. Good times.

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)

We had more fun than a leaky pipe on the Quiz this week, and the renovations are done just in time to reopen the 1000 club. afghanwhiggle is our first customer as he takes home top honors with 1016, followed by scrumpox in second with 996 and eagles95 in third with 942. Bear151556 makes fourth with 937, and Daddy's Big Pink Man-Squirrel finishes out the top five with 932.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over the newly opened Superbia Credit Union. Only 30% of quiztakers knew that the new bank is opening in Michigan specifically to serve the LGBT+ community, with loans and banking programs geared towards circumstances straight people don't often find themselves in. It's a wide open market that many banks haven't even considered yet, so it's a great thing for a bank to open specifically for the market.

The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over why an Alabama high school had removed the stall doors from many bathrooms. 94% of quiztakers knew that it was vaping the administration was trying to prevent, because stall doors are important to the nicotine levels or something. I'm willing to bet they're all vaping now behind the school where the janitor left the stall doors he took down.

The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over what to buy at a French boulangerie. I thought it was cigarettes, berets, and mime paint, but it turns out that it's a bread bakery. 53% of quiztakers knew you could pick up a baguette there, or maybe a croissant or Le pain aux figues or maybe some of those Olive Garden breadsticks. 

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over who parents are really going to see when they tell their kids they're going to an "Unusual Commoners" show. 80% of quiztakers knew that this is the name used by The Wiggles when they perform their more adult-oriented material in pubs rather than libraries. I'm sure parents also find it a bit less embarrassing to tell their single co-workers at the water cooler the next morning. "I went to see The Wiggles" probably means something dirty in Australia anyhow. 

If you missed the quiz, you can catch up on it here.

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing the same thing again next week!

Hope everyone's weekend went well.  Got a few items of note:

Fark's been having database issues as of late related to our migration into The Cloud.  Mike's working on it. Stiff upper lip, everyone. Apparently the problems stem from us not sacrificing the Fark Rubber Chicken to the God of 502 Errors, who you may remember from last season's "American Gods" premiere.  Personally, I'm hoping to see several 418 errors in the near future. At any rate, Mike's on it, thanks for your patience. If you have further frustrations, don't yell at him, yell at me - and I'll pretend to take it as sage advice.  Or we could just troll each other. Let me know what works.    

The Fark & Schnitt Podcast launched yesterday.  Last week I said we'd be running a beta for a few weeks for TotalFark only, turns out that the Powers That Be still retain 20th century conventional wisdom that big launches with little preparation is the way to go.  My apologies there. On the plus side, we cut the first episode the other night and I think it went very well. Todd's getting used to having a second person in the room and I'm just winging it as usual, but we did figure out a lot of stuff.  In particular, I got to recount the story of how Google accidentally shut Fark's ads off for several weeks due to mistakenly identifying a photo as badly out of compliance with their content requirements in a way that I can't put in an email without risking content filters deleting it (it wasn't). Also, you'll get to hear the story of how I stumbled into Jerry Bruckheimer's Man Cave of Film Memorabilia in Bloomfield, Kentucky by complete accident when I was on a bike ride last year.  I'm expecting we'll improve with each week's episode, and if for some reason we stall out, I'll start drinking during the recordings instead of after. That should fix it. 

First episode available here: "Wait the Lawyer is a Prostitute?": A real-life sex worker/lawyer, $120,000 bank mistake, and a guy dies after he's erroneously accused of a heinous crime by an employee of a major U.S. retailer.

On the TotalFark side of things - we've got a couple of interesting new ad units that I need to run by TotalFarkers first.  One involves quizzes, the other might involve methed-up Alabama squirrels. Want to know more and give input/advice?  Sign up for TotalFark, I'll be posting a thread to get your input later this week, probably Friday since it could double as office hours and I haven't done one of those in awhile either.  Too much travel lately. First world problems etc. Anyhow if everyone hates the new ad units I'll spike them, so get on TotalFark and let me know.  I think they're OK personally, but I want to check with you first.  

Alright that's it - as you were.  Enjoy the week!

A message from Drew Curtis:  
________________________ 

Happy short week, everyone!  

New project announcement: tl;dr new podcast, beta episodes available on TotalFark starting next week.  

A few months ago, my friend Todd Schnitt hit me up about doing a joint podcast.  Previously there had been a Fark podcast I was doing a few years ago with my friend Twitch from ZRock, but it got put on hold when Twitch was put in charge of literally everything at his station in Lexington.  Doing the podcast with Twitch was a fun experience but my main takeaway was radio/podcasting is hard and I have zero audio technical experience. Basically, like pretty much everything else I do in life, I need a partner or I'm useless.  So when Todd hit me up about doing a new podcast, I took him up on it.  

I've known Todd since at least 2002 when I first went on his morning show live in Tampa.  Todd has the distinction of possibly being patient zero for the Florida Man story epidemic.  Lots of folks think Fark was first on Florida Man, and while we were early to catch on, Todd has been covering weird Florida stories on his various shows since the early 1990s.  Also of interest is the fact that for whatever reason, dozens of people who worked with Todd in the past have gone on to be successful radio hosts in other markets. I can't tell you the number of times I've done a radio interview and run into someone who was involved in Todd's show at some point in their careers.  In fact my friend Twitch, who worked with me on the Farkcast, worked with Todd back in the day. Twitch has been the morning guy on Z103 Lexington since 2003, but he got his start on Todd's show just like dozens of other morning folks. Todd has no explanation for it, and neither do I, but it's definitely a thing.  

We're calling it the Fark and Schnitt show.  As for what it's about, I still haven't worked out the 30-second elevator pitch.  We're definitely avoiding unfunny politics. Past that, any other ridiculousness is fair game.  The best description I've got is we cover Fark-ready material but without making the story its own punchline - we go way past that.  

For example, in an earlier demo we discussed a story about Steve Bannon getting disinvited as a keynote speaker at a sex robot conference and segued into an article a friend of mine wrote back in 2017 about Steve Bannon's (alleged) sex dungeon meth house in Miami that at the time no one believed, but since the same journalist was integral in breaking the Deepwater Horizon Story and I know the guy personally, you can bet the farm it's real.   

(And yes I said we're going to steer clear of politics but that one-two punch combo was too weird to resist.)

Todd and I are both new to this, but we've got mad skills and unlimited material so we feel good about our chances.  The show will no doubt evolve over time in both format and concept. We're launching in beta for the first several episodes starting next week and we'll be releasing them to TotalFarkers to get their input.  We could seriously use any help/suggestions/etc that anyone happens to have. Once we get all the rust out, we'll be having a Grand Opening of sorts. More on that later.  

So if you'd like to help us out with that and haven't already signed up for TotalFark, get right on it!

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)

Another fun time on the Quiz this week with foxes. They really are silly animals, and I wish that one in particular would stop screaming in my front yard at night. I mean, file a grievance with the union or something about the continuous night shift - you've been around long enough to have some seniority at this point. Silly fox.

On the quiz itself, Worcester22 gets the big chair in the 1000 club with a score of 1009, followed by Denjiro in second with 942 and loveblondieo in third with 935. Branniganslaw takes fourth with 928, and runwiz finishes out the top 5 with 922.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over OYO hotels and their takeover of the Hooters Casino Hotel in Las Vegas. Only 28% of quiztakers knew that OYO is an Indian company - they were originally a web service that helped book budget hotels, but have since expanded into actual hotel ownership. While they are one of the top 5 in China, they only just started in Japan this year and the Hooters purchase marks their first foray into the American market. 

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over who gets paid when you roll to "Gin and Juice" by Snoop Dogg. "Doggystyle" was released under the Death Row Records label, and the catalog went up for sale when the company declared bankruptcy after Suge Knight's incarceration. 92% of quiztakers knew that last week, it became a free bonus when Hasbro acquired the rights to Entertainment One, mostly in order to get their hands on the Peppa Pig franchise. It's like buying your dream home for your family and discovering some vintage S&M gear in the basement. But, I mean, come on, what children's show wouldn't be better with theme music based off of a deep cut by Tupac Shakur?

The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was about which fired "Today" host was being tapped for a new iteration of the tabloid program "Extra", called "Extra Extra". Only 43% of quiztakers knew that it was Billy Bush who will be plowing through his Rolodex to score interviews with B-list celebs. Hopefully they'll keep the "locker room talk" in the locker room this time.

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz dealt with actress and comedian Valerie Harper. 86% of quiztakers knew that she played the role of Rhoda on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and later reprised the character for the spin-off. One of my favorite exchanges with that character was Phyllis: "I just thought I'd see what you swingin' singles do for fun." Rhoda "Same as you - sit around and wonder what it would be like to have a happy marriage."

If you missed last week's quiz, you can catch up on it here

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing it all again this week.

Fark NotNewsletter: You are hereby ordered to read about how our auction turned out
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2019-08-27 11:07:09 AM (54 comments) | Permalink

Last week, we told you we were auctioning off Fark's iconic rubber chicken environment monitor. The auction is over, and the proud new owner of THE Fark rubber chicken is Farker CipollinaFan. Server Monkey Mike sent the chicken on its way, and inquired as to what's ahead for our vulcanized friend. CipollinaFan was happy to share: "I am going to take it on a tour D.C. There will be pictures. Then I will give it a nice home where he can retire peacefully with a healthy diet of Maker's Mark and a nice bed of discarded RJ45 cables to simulate his natural environment." It sounds like Fark's chicken has found its happy forever home, and will enjoy a fun and enriching retirement. 

XOXO,

DisseminationMonkey

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)

I'm still at a loss as to the purpose of the numbers on the side of coffee carafes and why the "cups" graduation has no relation to any sized coffee commonly used in the United States. But we had fun anyway. Congratulations go to Denjiro who came out on top with 989, followed by UnrepentantApostate in second with 932. bobobolinskii takes third with 930, patcarew made fourth with 921, and Autoerotic Defenestration finishes out the top 5 with 914.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was about where the Chief Economist of Finland's S-Bank chose to give his triannual Economic Forecast. Only 22% of quiztakers caught the video of him speeding around in the passenger's seat of a European rally car, cracking jokes about "sharp turns" and "bumps in the road". Pretty sure he didn't go with a roller coaster because those actually come back up.

The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over Elon Musk's latest fashion statement. 81% of quiztakers knew that you can purchase a T-shirt with "Nuke Mars" on it from SpaceX's website. Musk says that nuclear weapon blasts at Mars' poles would release tons of water vapor and greenhouse gases into the Martian atmosphere, thus making it somewhat more livable for humans. I'm personally in favor of just activating the alien artifact to break Cohaagen's air monopoly, but I guess nukes work, too.

The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was about Jelly Brains - the thingies in the water, not some new Halloween concoction made from colored high fructose corn syrup. Only 34% of quiztakers knew that byozoans were actually a colony of millions of tiny invertebrate animals that like to stick together into spheres. They aren't very tolerant of contaminants in the water, so seeing them is actually a sign that the water is fairly clean - I mean, considering fish poop in it.

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over the island of Greenland, which on a Mercator projection appears to be three-fourths of the Earth's land mass or something. 90% of quiztakers knew that it was the Prime Minister of Denmark who refused to discuss the island's sale. Greenland has had self-rule since 1979, so you'd kind of need the permission of the (checks Wikipedia) Greenlanders as well. Not to mention the Queen of Denmark, although Margrethe II is a lot like England's Queen Elizabeth these days and just walks around and waves at people.

If you missed the quiz this week, you can catch up on it here, since you already know some of the answers now.

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing it all again this week!

Fark NotNewsletter: You can own Fark's rubber chicken. Rubber chicken? I hardly know 'er

A message from Drew Curtis:

Hey everyone - a couple items of note.  First, if anyone lives near the Lexington, KY area, there's a w00tstout 7.0 tapping at Mr. Brews Wednesday evening at 6 p.m.  Last year we floated the keg before 7 p.m. (or so I'm told, I don't specifically remember) so be sure to get there on time if you can make it!

Also, Mike is auctioning off the Fark Rubber Chicken.  We both autographed it, and as an added bonus, he's going to include a bona fide lump of Kentucky coal that he found in his front yard.  So jump on that if you can.  See below for details.

A message from Mike:

We're still selling old Fark hardware.  The selection continues to shrink slowly, but there is still plenty left.  Drew and I are willing to autograph pieces if there's any interest.  Bonus points if you can come to KY to pick it up -- especially the cabinet.  We had an unexpected amount of interest in the rubber chicken, so we've put Fark's rubber chicken environment monitor on eBay, and as Drew mentioned above, we'll include a proto-diamond, otherwise known as eastern Kentucky coal.  For everything else, read the instructions at the top of the sale page if you'd like to make an offer.

Fark Weird News Quiz Results (brought to you by ox45tallboy)

We had another fun time on the quiz, although no one wanted to talk about salamanders. That's okay, we don't see them much here in the U.S. where lizards and frogs are far more prominent. But they can be pretty cute. On the quiz itself, we have a 1000 club entry this week! Curseyoukhan takes the top spot with 1012 and a key to the executive lounge, followed by freakingmoron with 990 who we'll let watch from the doorway. skloon takes third place with 929, followed by MostlyLurking and BeotchPudding who tie for fourth with 928, and WoolyManwich who slides into the top 5 with 927.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over NHL goalie Robin Lehner and the Masterson Trophy he was awarded for "best exemplifying the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey." Well, only 23% of quiztakers knew that one of the most important things you can do in any team sport is wear the uniform of the team you''re playing for, which is why he was so surprised that his team was listed on the trophy as the New York Rangers - he played for the New York Islanders. Unless possibly his former team had disowned him - he had signed with the Chicago Blackhawks for next season when he got the trophy.

The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over which U.S. government agency's mascot celebrated its 75th birthday last week. 93% of quiztakers knew that Smokey Bear (not Smokey "the" Bear) has been telling us for 3/4 of a century to not burn stuff down. FWIW, Woodsy Owl started telling us to not litter in 1971 (really, look at the clothes he wears) and McGruff in his creepy trench coat started telling us to take a bite out of crime in 1980. I think he's now on a few watch lists, or probably should be.

The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over which band once had an extended legal battle with Burger King over, of all things, Chicken Fries. 51% of quiztakers knew that Slipknot's managers had a huge problem with "Coq Roq", the weird chicken-head wearing garage band spokespeople BK's marketing department somehow greenlit to sell processed chicken. Their "music" also sounded suspiciously like Slipknot, which to me is saying a blender with ice sounds a lot like fish bones in the garbage disposal, so the lesson here is many folks were glad it didn't go to trial and they managed to settle. And I guess someone somewhere is somehow glad we still have chicken fries. Possibly.

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over what item is now permanently available at Chick-Fil-A. 93% of quiztakers knew that you can now get macaroni and cheese with your chicken sandwich, except for the fact that you're not having a chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A anymore, you're getting a far better chicken sandwich from Popeye's - which, by the way, also has Mac & Cheese.

If you missed the quiz, you can catch up on it here.

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing it all again this week.

Fark NotNewsletter: Getting more greenlights on Fark using this one weird trick - no, really!
Posted by DisseminationMonkey at 2019-08-13 11:44:46 AM, edited 2019-08-13 12:00:10 PM (187 comments) | Permalink

You may have read previous editions of the Fark NotNewsletter in which Drew has talked about what he looks for when selecting Fark submissions to greenlight. Drew focused mainly on writing good taglines, which is always important, but I'm about to tell you about an easy hack to increase your chances of getting more greenlights. It bothers you that I called it a "hack" just now, doesn't it? Yeah, I did that just to be a jerk. But no, really, here's an easy tip that can help you get more greenlights: Submit against less competition. How do you do that? I'm glad you asked. 

The first thing is, the majority of our submissions are for the Main page and the Politics tab. If you have a hard time getting greenlights, consider those tabs already covered and submit good links and conversation topics for the other tabs: Discussion, Sports, Business, Geek, Entertainment, D'awww and Food. These tabs don't get enough love, and you can be their knight in shining armor. Be sure you come up with a funny tagline, and select the proper tab in the category drop-down in the submission form

Nextly, we get most of our submissions during normal office hours when people are avoiding work and screwing around on the internet, and we're often short on good content late evenings, over weekends, and on holidays. Try submitting more during those times instead of going up against the business hours submitters. Not only are you more likely to get a greenlight, but the night and weekend admins will really appreciate having more to choose from. Everybody wins!

And now for something that might surprise you: You might think it's hardest to get a greenlight for a thread that we only run once per week, but often those are the ones that have little to no competition at all - meaning the moderators and admins either scramble to come up with something, or they just don't bother with the dang thread that week (I'm looking at you, CSB Sunday Morning). Below are the weekly threads we seem to struggle with the most, and what admins are looking for for each of them.

* CSB Sunday Morning threads: The idea here is to have a topic, and Farkers share their own true stories about it. You can submit your CSB thread with a relevant link, or just link it back to Fark.com and the Fark robots will magically change the link to go right to the thread when you submit it. As far as topics go, take a look at past CSB Sunday Morning topics, and avoid submitting one we've done before -- at least recently -- if possible. Try to think of a topic that the majority of Farkers will have a story for. For example, avoid topics that would only apply to women, or people who have had pet snakes, or someone who had a privileged upbringing, or Farkers with red hair. You also want to either avoid topics that will elicit short answers rather than stories, or put a reminder in the headline or the Boobies to share stories about the topic, rather than just answers. Speaking of the Boobies, you can write one with instructions and even include your own story to get it started, or you can just make sure the headline has enough information so that an instructive Boobies isn't necessary. If you are writing a Boobies, though, you'll want to have it ready to copy and paste in so you can post it immediately after submitting (this will require a TotalFark subscription). Please submit your CSB Sunday Morning thread contenders on Saturday evenings. They're usually selected late Saturday and are posted in TotalFark Discussion overnight to get them started, then they go live to the Main page Sunday mornings at 9 Eastern.

* Saturday Morning Book Club and Sunday Morning Music Club: Winterlight was kind enough to write about these threads in a previous Fark NotNewsletter. Please check that out for guidelines on submitting topics for those, and you can also check out Sunday Morning Music Club and Saturday Morning Book Club threads that we've done before.

* Woofday Wednesday: Woofday Wednesday is our canine version of Caturday. Submit dog articles that make your tail wag on Tuesdays by 2 p.m. and use the Woofday tag. You can check out some of the previous Woofday threads to get an idea of what kinds of links to submit. 

A few more tips for getting more of your submissions selected by Fark admins: We often run short on Photoshop contest submissions, so those are a good bet. You can check out all the live Fark Photoshop contests here, and TotalFarkers can see those along with all of the upcoming Fark contests here. Also, we often miss out on local funny and weird news stories or don't get them until after national outlets pick them up, but you can help us out by keeping an eye out for them in your local news and submitting them early. You might also consider setting up alerts for phrases and topics that tend to be good Fark fodder. 

With anything you submit for consideration to be selected by Fark admins, always keep these general tips in mind to increase the chances of your submission being posted on Fark. Fark is, above all, a humor website, so the funnier the tagline, the better its chances of being chosen. Please don't submit headlines that are the same as the article's - it's not against the rules, but it's the last one the admins will choose. Also, try to use "good" sources, meaning ones that give the full story and don't block a lot of people from viewing their content. We'd prefer you take a few extra minutes to submit quality links and headlines rather than racing to be first to submit the story. And even if you follow all these tips and guidelines and you're the only one to submit a particular story or link for a weekly thread, that does not guarantee you will get a greenlight. If you want to know why your submission was redlit, please do not complain about it in a comments thread, but contact Farkback instead. One final note: There is a common misconception that TotalFarkers get preferential treatment when admins go through submitted links, but that's simply not the case. It can appear that way, though, because Farkers who submit a lot tend to join TotalFark, and having a TotalFark membership means you can see what's been submitted, what's in the queue, and what hasn't been submitted yet, so it definitely can give you an edge. 

XOXO,

DisseminationMonkey
