mrparks: Glockenspiel Hero: A Trump boat parade sounds like a great idea.  Here's the best flagship for it

[Fark user image image 800x600]

Na, this one is better. Literally, the exact item which is pictured. I need to make that clear.

A fictional pirate ship, versus a real flagship that literally sunk the first time they tried to sail it because it was too top heavy (and because nobody had the guts to tell the king that his prized flagship was a shiatty design)?

Mr. Parks posted an image of a snaptite model of a fictional pirate ship.  That does not resemble the Vasa whatsoever.

Boondock3806: ReaverZ: Boondock3806: Privileged rural people like Trump

Most aren't locals. Most of the locals probably vote Trump though.

I assume that if you're a boat owner, there's a good chance you're rural. At least, among the boat owning population, the less rural you are, the more privileged you are. Sorta like the crazy-hot scale.


there are a lot of rich city people who come upstate to buy their "summer retreats". Of course they get a boat and only take it out once. Locals can't afford houses on the river anymore.

Unscratchable_Itch:
AND WTF IS A BOAT PARADE?

I grew up 20-30 minutes from two huge lakes and have never heard of a boat parade


That's because Donald Trump invented the Boat Parade!
People are buying boats just to be part of this "movement".
Just wait, you will see lots more of these "floaters" as we call them.

Boat parades have been a thing for at least a couple of decades.

The lake I mentioned up thread Lake Murray has been doing a Fourth of July boat parade for a long while.

Contestants try to 'Merica it up and the most 'Merica'd up boat wins.

Man On A Mission: From the tweet: "THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BIDEN BOAT PARADE"

Is that supposed to be a burn or something?

And what's with all the hand clapping emojis? Who runs this twitter account, a 12-year-old?


It's annoying when people clap on every word in real life, it's annoying on Twitter. It's farking condescending.

We have a handful of people selling dubious Trump merchandise on the sides of roads. Never main roads in town, always at city limits in empty lots.

No...a plastic model of a ship.

Glockenspiel Hero posted an image of the Vasa, a Swedish ship that sailed 1400 yards from the docks before sinking, because it was way too top-heavy.  It had the strongest broadside of any ship of the time, but the bits below the waterline were way too shallow for its length and height.  The Swedish admiralty was not willing to tell Gustav II Adolf that his brand-new warship was complete crap.  It was eventually found, brought up from the bottom of the harbor, and displayed in a museum.  It is a great allegory of the Tiny Dick Daughterfarker administration.

Mr. Parks posted an image of a snap-tite plastic model of a generic "pirate ship", that does not represent an actual specific ship.

SamFlagg: WTF is a boat parade?


Apparently it's 8 boats with MAGA flags on the back, and a "journalist" who edits the film footage to make it seem like there are more boats and that this is some sort of larger grass roots movement.
/And yes, a bunch of upper middle class white folks without masks driving power boats.

Grand lake o the cherokees had one. North end of lake mainly. These people are from tulsa with money.

It wasnt the locals, it's the conservative rich GOP types with lake houses.

The same farkers who don't understand the rules of the road and don't understand my farking sailboat under sail has right of way and no effective reverse.

By all means, shoot across my bow towing your WASP friends on a tube....

/south end of lake is best

I'm surprised Trump hadn't sued the flea markets where probably half of the flags are sold

Exile On Beale Street: Unscratchable_Itch: Please, to help preserve what's left of my sanity, can someone PLEASE explain to me why there are so many people in this country who are willing to lick Donald Trump's festering ball sack?

Did these people feel this way about him before he was president? Is just because he's president and allegedly Republican? Is it his racism and superficial patriotism? WTF is it that they love so much about him? Why are his fans so ready and willing to make ridiculous displays to praise him? WHY?!

AND WTF IS A BOAT PARADE?

I grew up 20-30 minutes from two huge lakes and have never heard of a boat parade

The last President was black. And Hillary is a smart woman. That's it.


It can't be that simple. This Trump humping is super weird shiat.

I cannot stand recreational boaters and jet skiers. It will never fail that I'll be in a little fishing boat with a small outboard and trolling motor, anchored quietly while letting the fishing float bob lazily in the water, sipping a beer, puffing a doobie when some MAGAt asshat starts roaring around in their recreational water-borne noise machine. I've gone from listening to the sounds of nature to Alabama short-track racing in moments. Same mentality as bikers -- they have no care whatsoever about other people's comfort and peace. To every single MAGAt only their rights matter and no one else's. "America First" really means "Me First". That is their mantra.

/ Thus I often call Conservatives, Republicans and MAGAts "Me Firsters".

This.  My wife sees people with boats and is jealous.  I see people with even more things to waste money on than we have, and am not jealous.

I worked at a marina for a few years. I met one truly satisfied boat owner. He bought a boat that morning and spent all day boating with his family. At the end of the day, while walking down the dock back to the parking lot he had a heart attack and died.

That man enjoyed every moment he had with that boat.

Vacation Bible School: SpaceyCat: Is a boat parade supposed to be something special?

Maybe we're misinterpreting the parade and they are rubbing it in Trump's face?

Huh, I guess we can add boats to another thing Trump is stupidly afraid of, the brave alpha male he is...

"It so terrified him when they weighed anchor -- the movement convinced him it was sinking -- that he would never sleep on it," wrote O'Donnell in his book Trumped!. "All the time it was docked at the marina, he went on board only to watch boat races or occasionally to entertainment important customers or business associates."


It might wake up a shark.

And just what is a boat? A hole in the water that you throw money into.

That about 8 boats total. Probably the local douche canoe club. Yes, they epitomize the stupid, but the news was complicit and blew that out of proportion.
 
2020-07-12 8:07:13 AM  
Take all your money out as cash. Drive past West Marine and throw about half of it in the parking lot. Take the rest of the money to your boat and put it in there. Then drill a hole so the boat can sink. After it is sunk take your wallet out and throw it in there too. You will still come out ahead.

I'm sure they were all blessed by God with their extra money.
