No service charges?  Hmmm.

Someone on the thread knows my mind

I'm somewhat bothered that I have enough of a moral compass that it prevents me from running a scam like this against MAGAs. It seems like easy pickings.

Hey buddy, can I interest you in buying some used lottery tickets?
 
2021-06-14 1:29:13 PM  
Cripes, those tickets are the fakest-looking fakes this side of a guy selling watches out of a suitcase in Times Square.  Actually a watch stamped "RULEX" would be more convincing.

God, those Q folks are stupid as hell!

Yet still allowed to vote, and in 2022, only their votes will be counted.

I still have no idea how those dumb farkers can even put their pants on in the morning, let alone figure out how to make it to the polls

i don't want to be the bearer of bad news to our resident Q-Tards here, but if the Nuge and Kid Rock weren't at the first inauguration they most certainly won't be at the second.

It's a 'shop. As Akiva pointed out in the Twitter thread, the text on the 2nd tix didn't even line up properly.
 
2021-06-14 1:42:49 PM  
Thanks


Now I will spend all of the next week kicking my ass for not thinking of this shiat first.
 
2021-06-14 1:47:45 PM  
"This looks shopped..."

I've kinda been gone for like 15 years and it's... it's like I never left.

The Laffer curve is still the biggest grift. But this s cute, current one.
 
2021-06-14 1:51:42 PM  
I like that the seats are in the "LOWER LEVEL". I assume they're referring to levels of IQ.
 
2021-06-14 1:53:27 PM  
Trump definitely deserves a second term.

After he serves his first term in federal prison, he should do a second one in state prison.

You've missed the boat on selling tickets, why not sell some swag?

$200 "official" hoodies
$75 t-shirts
$40 "Inaugural hats"
 
2021-06-14 1:55:41 PM  
'Lower level'?
I think they mean 'lowest level'

I've been saying something similar for years, but not worded as well.

So you're telling us there's an opportunity here?
 
2021-06-14 1:56:52 PM  
This can't be real.

Believing the election was stolen is one thing. But who the hell would pay that much to see Nugent and Kid Rock?

Has to be a joke.
 
2021-06-14 1:57:13 PM  
I could see Ted Nugent selling these though.

Ok, now I'm just depressed because I didn't think of it first.
 
2021-06-14 1:58:26 PM  
The whole idea of Trump as POTUS is that anyone who wants to grift the rubes can do so, as long as they Mail 75% of the proceeds to Trump Crime Family Org. In care of Atts: Weiselburg, Weisellburg and Davidson

The logic that many con artists use to feel better about what they do is that marks are going to be scammed by somebody, so it might as well be me.  And they're right.  Marks are dying to hand their money to somebody who tells them what they would like to hear.  Why shouldn't it be you or me?

Ted Nugent


Is he gonna shiat his pants on stage to re-enact his getting out of being drafted?

Super Chronic: Trump definitely deserves a second term.

After he serves his first term in federal prison, he should do a second one in state prison.


Counter: state pens are often way worse. Wouldn't it be better to put him in state prisons first to break him harder & then spend his waning months in a federal resort prison?

Or would it be better to put him in a federal prison first & then stuff him into a state pen to finish him off? I don't know? I'm open to all ideas, just blue skying here.

/seriously though abolish prisons
 
2021-06-14 1:59:27 PM  
Damn, I wish I would have thought of that.  I guess my backup plan will have to be commemorative coins with TRUMP 47 and Aug 15 stamped in them.  Fake tickets are way easier to produce.

Not even a good shoop. I get the meta-joke here: There's a moral here about not believing everything you see on facebook and being skeptical of stories that support what you already believe.

...but I'm pretty sure that rubbing ghost pepper sauce on your testicles is more fun and more productive than trying to be the "well, actually" guy when your aunt on facebook is passing around fake stories about Trumpers being dumb.

I really want to go take a walk outside, all of a sudden.

Hey hey, I'm selling rocks that keeps tigers away here. Get your own mar- I mean customers elsewhere!
 
2021-06-14 2:00:28 PM  
You know, I'm actually wondering if this (if it's real) could be considered illegal. I mean, no reasonable person with the ability to breathe unsupervised would fall for this nonsense. How would you even prosecute it if it were? Who would admit to being so stupid they'd actually fall for this? These are the same guys who think Trump won the last election and Biden is some sort of meat puppet that Trump controls remotely.

And, yeah, there's a very small part of me that wishes I didn't have any semblance of a moral compass, because not only would this be an incredibly easy job that makes a lot of money, but no one's going to have sympathy for the morons who fall for it.
 
2021-06-14 2:00:42 PM  
I don't believe that twitterer that people are actually buying these. I think more probably someone posted them as a joke, and it got lots of likes or whatnot. If people really did start buying these in mass, it is a crime, and the DOJ will get involved.

I'd like to look myself in the mirror without cringing.
Stealing from morons is still stealing. It's stealing from the weak at that.

Well, I'm certainly not paying $1,200 to see 3 Doors Down again.

I'm having my ticket screened for bamboo and inexplicable folds to ensure legitimacy before I pay my $1200.

No way does anyone fall for this and actually try to buy.  Right?  Hello?

This photoshopped thing MAY very well be the dumbest grift in the history of dumb grifts, but a grift only has to be slightly smarter than the mark(s) so ...
