Does this mean I'll finally get the covered parking and condo in Vail that Drew promised me for buying into TF?
2006-08-22 9:45:25 AM  
Wait, Fark is a play on the F-word?!

This is a Blog?

sophomoric humor?

No, that's CNN is obviously confused.
Here it is strictly upper class stuff, with occasional graduate-level work.

2. Get mentioned on a financial news page.

3. Profit?

Does this mean we can all get free TF, and use Ultrafark to ---

2006-08-22 9:47:30 AM  
I don't think Fark is here to make money.

we are here to make fun of you.
2006-08-22 9:47:53 AM  
Curtis won't disclose his current revenue but insists that he can soon log monthly ad sales of $600,000 to $800,000.

Holy crap. Congrats Drew.
2006-08-22 9:48:30 AM  


/Drew should disclose the actual figures. *nod*
2006-08-22 9:48:49 AM  
that's unpossible...

/he sounds creepy...
2006-08-22 9:48:52 AM  
My gawd...we're the establishment.
2006-08-22 9:49:02 AM  
Us sophmoric? That's unpossible!

2006-08-22 9:49:25 AM  
Pull my finger!
2006-08-22 9:49:46 AM  
YouTube and Myspace are the biggest bandwidth taxes on the internet. Sorry, Drew, you're still small time.
2006-08-22 9:49:59 AM  
I think Drew owes us all a round of beer. With the multimillions, I'll take two!

/blog? what blog?
2006-08-22 9:49:59 AM  
drew is a millionaire!?!?!?!?
2006-08-22 9:50:00 AM  
An eccentric blog? I take offense at that. I contribute to the "blog" and I'm not eccentric, I'm insane. Get it right next time CNN.
2006-08-22 9:50:15 AM  
Sophomore in college or high school? My future rides on the answer.
2006-08-22 9:50:15 AM  
Sophomoric, huh? They must not have read any of the political threads to give us that much credit.
2006-08-22 9:50:57 AM  
Sophmoric? Have they met the President?

/hey Blair...
2006-08-22 9:50:58 AM

2006-08-22 9:51:36 AM  
Whamdangler: college or high school?
College: Either Barber or Clown
2006-08-22 9:51:36 AM  
Told you...

lying on those surveys really helps fark.

too bad noone really SEES any advertisements...

Adblock Plus.

Doesn't show a single advert, and screws with tracking. But the site loads blindingly fast...
2006-08-22 9:51:45 AM  

I resemble that remark
2006-08-22 9:51:48 AM  
Noel Coward stops in every other Thursday! Sophmoric? Bah!

2006-08-22 9:52:06 AM  
All I can think of is homer saying "they've got the internet on computers, now."

I don't know how that applies here.
2006-08-22 9:52:12 AM  
HugeMidget: My gawd...we're the establishment.

HA! Time to find another site...
2006-08-22 9:52:12 AM  
I had no idea Drew ran the site by himself. . . *quick someone look for unmarked graves in Drew's back yard!* Also, someone tell CNN they fact-checker suffered an ID-10T error.
2006-08-22 9:52:27 AM  
nerfball: drew is a millionaire!?

Can't be. The American dream is dead. There are no more self made millionaires. Can't be done. You're one sickness or pink slip away from living in a van down by the river...

It's true! I heard it on CNN.
2006-08-22 9:52:51 AM  
A multimillion-dollar property?

In the future Fark, all headlines and witty comments will be written by paid comedy writers. Also, there will be HTML layer popups covering the content text until you click "Close".
2006-08-22 9:53:52 AM  
That's it, I am taking Anon-DIT global!
