Hmmm, is the law retroactive? Throw 'em in the slammer.

Must be a really slow news day.

2005-02-23 07:31:22 PM  
How come they never change the law when I'm in trouble...

It's a conspiracy!!!
2005-02-23 07:32:12 PM  
darn filter - that's his p0s+ is chronologically first, but placed last on the page
2005-02-23 07:32:44 PM

Because you never got a weener before?

stotan, nativefloridian , read the FArQ:

Boobies time warp
For whatever reason message boards on sites like Fark are forever plagued with morons posting 'Boobies' anytime a link is posted. Fark automatically turns the words 'Boobies' into the word 'boobies' and resets the timestamp on the message to twelve hours into the future.

stotan what the fark did you win- just cause you were first? I hate that moronic shiat. You didn't win shiat pal.
2005-02-23 07:36:14 PM  
What is this... "bingo" of which you speak?
2005-02-23 07:39:41 PM  
Don't fark with old ladies and their bingo, man. You think psychotic cats or old men in farmers markets are deadly, They got nothing on old ladies and their bingo.
2005-02-23 07:39:46 PM  
off topic: Weeners?! I thought it was boobies!
I love the filter for all its quirks (it invented the word trashiato!).

On Topic: What they didn't tell you; the Senior Center called in AARP heavies; oh yeah, octagenarian lawyers! Don't mess with them because they'll sue you in aulde englishe.
2005-02-23 07:40:07 PM  
...and these... "boobies?"
2005-02-23 07:40:45 PM  
Picking on old people and their nickel habits. What a new low.
2005-02-23 07:41:30 PM  
Wait... This went on for 20 years without a hitch. The old folks had fun. Who was the jackass who complained?
2005-02-23 07:47:37 PM  

N - 33

O - the humanity!

Five months ago, the Department of Justice contacted officials at the senior center after getting a complaint that bingo games were being played for cash.

Whoa, new discovery! Next: Ziggy plays bingo
2005-02-23 08:12:20 PM  
i like it better when Boobies was boobies
2005-02-23 08:12:56 PM  
Doggone those pesky elderly people! Flouting the law with their nickle bingo games! Don't they realize that the gummint needs all the taxes and licensing fees from gambling? Next thing you know, they'll want their Social Security and Medicare benefits improved. Bunch of ungrateful gray-hairs.

/I keed, I keed.
2005-02-23 08:15:02 PM  
i thought they changed the Boobies to weiners, what word is being filtered with weiners?
2005-02-23 08:34:38 PM  
Boobies is now Boobies, and attractive and successful African-American is attractive and successful African-American, and Weeners is Weeners too
2005-02-23 08:35:14 PM  
helpful, ain't I?
2005-02-23 08:52:43 PM  
"I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!"

/you must remember this
2005-02-23 09:01:42 PM  
damn, lostcat, you win the thread for making a Fallout 2 reference via that well-doctored image.
2005-02-23 09:12:45 PM  
This is exactly why we shouldn't have to pay for their Social Security. You give an old person a nickel and what do they do? Squander it on O-23. Hey, all I'm saying is don't come crying to me next time you need your insulin.
2005-02-23 09:45:36 PM  
Oh, I think you have, Stotan, I think you have.

So, the filter changes "Boobies" to "boobies" or "boobies" to "weeners"?
2005-02-23 10:28:38 PM  
the filter turns Boobies to boobies im not sure what is changed into weeners yet
2005-02-24 02:25:55 AM  
It's not doctored. I think it's from the Russian or Hungarian version of the game. But the town in Fallout 2 is Klamath Falls, Oregon.

/never done that before
