ORLY owl ftw.

Original headline: 'Fatal boat tour unsafe"

Well, duh. Any boat tour that starts out with the word 'fatal' is bound to be unsafe.

I'm not sure why but I never get tired of O RLY owl.
2006-07-26 10:00:55 PM  
Special request: The image of the owl morphing into romero. Thanks in advance.

Sometimes newsreaders are ridiculed on the internet. More after this cage match.

(Owl for the win!)

Oh please let it be a tag team death match including the Ha! Ha! Guy and Mustard Man!

(Drools uncontrollably)

I'm not sure there's enough money in my bank account to bet enough in this battle. I hear Lance Armstrong would give his left nut to watch this fight.

/bored, really
2006-07-26 10:49:21 PM  
Either way, the bout would be a hoot.

2006-07-26 10:49:31 PM  
So, the boats have been accidents waiting to happen for years. It is indeed fortunate that the operators used them very gently...until that fatal day. This reminds me of that cruise ship in Florida the other day. Except that one was not inherently unstable.

Remind me again why voting was not enabled on this thread?

/wanted to see ORLY owl kick Romero's ass in votes
//ORLY owl had home-cage advantage
///then again, BUTTSECKS? owl would probably ambush both of them
////first time I've ever done slashies and I hate myself for it.

Fireproof, I am bowing in your general direction. You, sir (if indeed your gender is sirish) are both an artiste and a genius.

Back to our regular programming. FTA: A confluence of factors came together in the span of a few seconds and led to the most deadly maritime accident in the Capital Region's recent historysince George Washington tried to throw a dollar across the Potomac.

Fixed that for them.

In this corner, weighing 180 pounds, Ric Romero. And in this corner, weighing 10 pounds, the O RLY Owl. Gentleman, Endangered Fowl, at the sound of the bell, start your peckers.
2006-07-26 10:54:25 PM  
I'm willing to accept Romero and the owl as attendants or minor deities in the pantheon of the FSM. I never get tired of their antics.

That morph image is fantastic.

Two cliches enter, one cliche' leaves.
2006-07-26 11:00:42 PM  
10 pounds of obvious tags on the owl. 10 more if the owl divebombs him from the top of the cage.

Rodeodoc: You, sir (if indeed your gender is sirish) are both an artiste and a genius

(Yeah, I'm a sir. Although I didn't create that image)

I have a collection of great images like that. Check that HAHA Guy birthday thread from a few days back for a lot more (of the HAHA Guy variety).

Now what would really be great:

Someone post this match, with the aforementioned ref. (or a Fark cliche). And put the HAHA Guy and others in the audience. Mustard Man and Looter Guy sell concessions. Domo Kun, with his large mouth, is in the announcers booth.
2006-07-26 11:05:36 PM  
Wait, by "post" I meant "Photoshop" and by "someone" I mean "someone with almost as much free time as me."

When a Fark headline is humorous, related forum posts often derive from the topic.

\Romero for the win!!11!
2006-07-26 11:21:32 PM  
Your dog wants to be the special referee, keep the BUTTSECKS? owl from ambushing Romero with a steel chair.
2006-07-26 11:24:41 PM  
Halfway through the fight, Mustard Man falls to his death from the rafters in a stunt gone wrong.

Romero wins. It'll be several years before he notices he's been hit.
2006-07-26 11:40:18 PM  
I swear, my love for the O Rly owl will never die.

And Aerojockey? Your graphic is almost better than drugs, man.

And I in my tiredness read "Ric Romero" but thought "Ray Romano" and wondered, WTF, mate?

themasterdebater: Googlefight: OWL FOR THE WIN!

I call shenanigans... Your Googlefight uses "o really owl". Clealry that will win.

Here is a more true result, and the winner is Ric Romero.

Enuratique: Here is a more true result, and the winner is Ric Romero.

Not quite, use have to use quotes. "Ric Romero" vs. "O RLY OWL" (pops)
