Just a thought

Star Wars Episode 3:The cuming of Darth Balls

Its just a porno name or somthing i dont know
2002-03-27 01:07:07 AM  
Did anyone notice how many cliche scenes and dialogue were in the trailers? Did you get a sense that you've seen it all before?

"I hate it when he does that" and "I hate flying" etc.

Seems Georgie baby has been watching too much TV and is runnin out of ideas...

Maybe "Attack of the Clones" is more appropriate than we think or maybe "Attack of the Cliche's"...
2002-03-27 01:07:37 AM  
Anybody notice that there seems to be no logic to the posting of articles except by seniority? Supposedly there isn't but here is the letter sent to me by Drew:

I'll preface this by saying that NONE of the articles I've posted have ever been linked.

There's no favoritism in the selection process. However when I do the
links I do them in reverse order of their submit time. This means that
the most recently submitted version of the story generally gets posted.

Additionally Jeff could have skipped over it on a pass as well
-end of letter
I think there's a formula... I would have one. But I can't verify it because none of mine have been linked.
2002-03-27 01:08:17 AM  
What about Fark Vader?
Cliche Kitty P O
R 2 Domo Do
I know there are more...help me out people!
2002-03-27 01:11:19 AM  
Furthermore, it's the "reverse order of their submit time" doesn't that seem unfair? Just curious. You surf the web, find a killer article, and some unfunny, more senior submitter, gets credit for an article that HAS NO FUNNY TAGLINE.

Fark, in my book, is starting to sark.
2002-03-27 01:13:44 AM  
Posting from satire is tough, I have submitted article from Broken Newz, The Toque and others, it seems as if they never get picked up...too bad...funny stuff.
2002-03-27 01:14:57 AM  
What does it matter WHO put it up...just get an article up for all of us to read.....give me a reason not to work
2002-03-27 01:16:50 AM  
How about SW: Episode 3 "Lucas wants more money"?
2002-03-27 01:18:04 AM  
Um, just a reminder, this thread is talking about

"Top 11 rejected names for Star Wars: Episode III"

Agree with the King, who cares who posts what.
2002-03-27 01:24:45 AM  
"Episode 3: Money-seizer of the Geeks."
2002-03-27 01:25:06 AM  
Thank ya, thank ya very much.
2002-03-27 01:28:17 AM  
Okay, well, it's true... you just want it linked. However, you work out a good tagline, you thought it was hilarious, it doesn't get linked until some very early farker posts,"I thought this was interesting." Then it's linked.

Your tagline was, "Michael Jackson catches his son in bed with his 11-year old lover." ASSUMING they're both relevant to the story, wouldn't you be upset that "I thought this was interesting." is what is posted?

I don't care really, but I think there IS a conspiracy. Otherwise why would any of the stupid YellowTimes.org links get posted. They are NEVER funny, and ALWAYS political. And the taglines suck.
2002-03-27 01:29:08 AM  
"Episode 3: All those great action scenes and quotes from every movie you've already seen - A collection by G Lucas."

2002-03-27 01:30:57 AM  
"May the fark be with you."

Episode 3: Just when you thought you'd seen it all...you have!
2002-03-27 01:37:43 AM  
As a test I just submitted this article I just read about Rosie O'Donnell with a funny tag line....lets see what happens....nothing I am sure :) I think this is pretty funny...will the admins?
2002-03-27 01:41:33 AM  
Now back to the thread....fark be with you....man, why did I not think of that! haha
2002-03-27 01:42:46 AM  
I hear ya MisterSym, same noise here. I'd just like to see/read comments on some of the articles I've submitted. Preferably WITHOUT the idiotic taglines that are linked articles I've submitted. So, apparently, I'm submitting links that are worthwhile, but not until someone with more "weight" than me submits them are they posted.

And as far as the time-lapse thing goes... you can always have "follow-up" but apparently you have to be high in the Illuminati to get your links posted timely.

I should have signed up for comments when I started reading fark almost 2 years ago. You seem to be pegged by your number.
2002-03-27 01:43:31 AM  
CGIFridays indeed. I remember when it took more than a couple of geeks and MAYA to make a movie.
2002-03-27 01:46:07 AM  
haha...well, anything that bags on her...Daddy likey :)
2002-03-27 01:48:37 AM  
Velvet_Elvis, great article... I imagine it will be posted in a few days or maybe the weekend by Some Guy with the tagline, "Rosie O'Donnell admits she's gay!"

Good luck.
2002-03-27 01:49:44 AM  
deja vu

Um, just a reminder, this thread is talking about

"Top 11 rejected names for Star Wars: Episode III"
2002-03-27 01:50:57 AM  
This is great SCIENCE here. We're experimenting... We're working it... I LMAO at that article. Funny, and witty! But what were the taglines? We'd like to compare from a scientific standpoint.
2002-03-27 01:53:38 AM  
Just a reminder Yoda, the original article wasn't funny so why should we be?

However I would have chosen, "Episode III: Yoda Finds Out That His Weapon of Choice, A 'LightSaber' Cuts Off His Ears When He Swings It!"
2002-03-27 01:53:55 AM  
Submit your own tag line...so who has the best...

or use..to get back on the subject

Episode III : Rosie and Jar Jar come out of closet
2002-03-27 02:00:58 AM  
My tagline for the Rosie article would be:
"Rusty O'Donnell admits he's gay and probably female."

Episode III: Killer Magic Force Guy Turns EVIL! France Surrenders!
2002-03-27 02:02:26 AM  
so assuming it has been posted 4 or 5 times now...I wonder if it will be post....someone slip the admin a 5 spot! Tell him he can date your sister. Person's tag line used...wins...wins what? who knows....hey...MY SISTER!
2002-03-27 02:08:11 AM  
MisterSym... don't be putting words in my mouth. I would agree that Broken Newz is not funny. But I didn't say that.

Here's another to continue the thread:
