We liked the idea of commenting on Derek's purchases so much that we added comments to our articles shortly after linking to this site.

Hey, it's oldie day at Fark!
2002-08-24 12:13:01 AM  
One Word~~ Sad.
2002-08-24 12:13:09 AM  
In Soviet Farkistan, oldies post you.
2002-08-24 12:13:53 AM  
This is pure, unadulterated crap.

Next link: A webcam of grass growing...
2002-08-24 12:14:39 AM  
Thank you for your well thought out opinion
2002-08-24 12:15:44 AM  
dumbest. idea. ever.
2002-08-24 12:16:09 AM  
at first glance this appears to suck
but read thru the comments
funny stuff

"I have a desmudger! I know what your account number is "
2002-08-24 12:16:18 AM  
Is this as pointless as it appears to be?
2002-08-24 12:17:07 AM  
Jeff's telling you that fark was basically inspired by this.
2002-08-24 12:17:40 AM  
Jeff: You bring humor to weekend submissions. Thank you.

And please re-think your policy about not having another "cougar day" - I think we're overdue.

except for the fact that if I wanted to read other people's reciepts, I could look in the garbage at Wal-Mart. I won't find Fark articles in the Wal-Mart garbage. ...hmmm wait....
2002-08-24 12:23:22 AM  
How can this be Fark-worthy once, much less twice?
2002-08-24 12:25:16 AM  
There's nothing like finding out about the beginnings of something you cherish. For those of you that haven't yet, go into the archives sometime.
2002-08-24 12:28:16 AM  
what - because theres no boobies?
i'm shocked that farkers don't appreciate this site
ah what the hell do i care what ppl think
2002-08-24 12:31:50 AM  
Honestly though, it is kinda funny in a way. I look at it as a kind of OCD. Dont take the individual reciepts as a joke, but the whole least he not posting ANOTHER "Photoshop this Farker..." blah-blah-blah.
2002-08-24 12:31:52 AM  
Why....should I give a shiat about someone's Wal-Mark receipts?
2002-08-24 12:32:34 AM  
2002-08-24 12:33:46 AM  
I collect time. I have way too much of it. And everyone I meet is trying to get me to spend it with them doing "things". Bah.

I went to this site way before I started reading Fark. I think it got a mention on The Screensavers.
2002-08-24 12:45:13 AM  
That just drained my desire to live.
2002-08-24 12:48:35 AM  
that is the most retarded website in the world
2002-08-24 12:51:11 AM  
I love it when my wife sends me out to the wal-mart for her feminine hygiene products...

I just waltz around the isles with those pads and smirk, because all the guys are looking at me saying to themselves "yeah, he's got him a woman" and "whoa, maxi's, better buy a movie too"

but that's just me
2002-08-24 12:54:32 AM  
i think its brilliant in its utter stupidity
but brilliant nonetheless
2002-08-24 1:00:37 AM  
tampons, 20 pack: $6
1 lb. brick of chocolate: $4
one fifth of vodka: $18
the look on the cashier's face, knowing how bad you're PMS-ing: PRICELESS
2002-08-24 1:28:52 AM  
I think it's neat that his first purchase in 1996 was a crib and now he's buying school supplies.
2002-08-24 1:40:17 AM  
maybe he should ask his wife if she'd like to switch to "Vipons" instead of those Ultra Maxi humungo pads
2002-08-24 3:19:40 AM  
Thats about as pathetic as Fark has become. Glad to see it's come full circle.
2002-08-24 3:42:52 AM  
The reciept thing is kinda lame, but did anyone check out his other projects?

The one where he collects old tapes from thrift stores and uploads the voices on the tape is pretty cool, IMHO
2002-08-24 3:58:48 AM  
Wow, even back then people were stupid enough to care about being the Weeners.
2002-08-24 3:59:29 AM  
Damnit, you know what I mean, I hope.
When they posted.
2002-08-24 10:09:17 AM  
HEY! He emailed Wil Wheaton and got a response! Maybe Wil will finally visit the receipts after Fark recommends it...
2002-08-24 10:19:48 AM  
Someone add up all his receipts. I wanna know how much he has spent there. I'd do it myself but I have to go to work now. :(
2002-08-24 12:00:44 PM  
What disturbs me isn't that this guy publishes all his receipts on the Internet, what disturbs me is that he has such a fan base that there are something like 200 comments for each reciept commenting on stuff like "Oh, look! Derek bought a muffin pan! He must like muffins! I like muffins too! My favorites are blueberry!"

Only on the Internet.
2002-08-24 3:20:15 PM  
Im inspired. I'm gonna make a site called and post pics of each piece of toilet paper i use before I flush it.
2002-08-24 3:33:55 PM  
I've never bought anything from Walmart. ever. No particular reason.
2002-08-26 2:05:31 PM  
Dear god...

I've proudly never given a dime to that dump.
