So here's an incentive to buy the book: I'll buy you a beer if you do.

This'll of course mean that you'll have to run into me in a bar somewhere so I can do it, but if you come to a Fark party or just happen to be passing through Lexington and have a copy of the book, I'll buy you a beer. Someone's bound to ask what if we buy multiple copies, I have no idea why anyone would do that but yes I'll buy you multiple beers.

The good news is even if we never meet up you'll still get multiple gut laughs out of this book. Many people have reported laughing out loud at parts of the book to the point where they've bothered other people on airplanes and subways. And hey, Stephen King liked it.

Thanks to everyone who has already purchased a copy, I really appreciate the support. Hope I can buy you a beer sometime.

Book tour info is here. Next stop: NYC on Tuesday

Oh, hey, does this mean my pre-order will finally show? Heh.. stupidly attached a CD I've wanted for a while to that order.

/yes, I'm sucking up
//will keep an eye out for a Raleigh Fark party
 
2007-05-31 12:40:30 PM  
Good luck with the book, Drew. I hope to pick up a copy soon!
 
2007-05-31 12:40:50 PM  
Drew: run into me in a bar somewhere

I'm coming to your book signing in Austin... maybe, probably.
Which means I'm dragging your ass out to a bar.

My tank is fight Vol. 2?
 
2007-05-31 12:41:20 PM  
Haha I like the one review so far
 
2007-05-31 12:41:29 PM  
If I buy you a beer, can I get a free book?
 
2007-05-31 12:41:46 PM  
Raedin' buuks is fer chumps
 
2007-05-31 12:42:26 PM  
What if I don't drink beer? What incentives do I get?

/wait, what?
 
2007-05-31 12:42:29 PM  
Posted this in the last thread, but looks like you popped out of that one. If I can't make it to a book signing, and send you a book plate label with a self addressed stamped envelope, along with a copy of the receipt, can you sign it and send it back? I'll take that over a beer.

Unless it's a Maudite or a Trois Pistoles.
 
2007-05-31 12:42:54 PM  
What if I can't read?
 
2007-05-31 12:43:00 PM  
If I wait for the movie will you buy me a light beer?
 
2007-05-31 12:43:05 PM  
Sincere congrats, big man! It is likely I will take you up on that some day.
 
2007-05-31 12:43:15 PM  
Sweet. I'm going to print your post and stick it in the front cover... I'm thinking Next Thanksgiving you'll be in my area. NWPA

/I'm not going to forget either!
 
2007-05-31 12:43:22 PM  
I literally JUST had mine delivered to me. Can I still have a beer?
 
2007-05-31 12:43:24 PM  
I see no Canadian stops on this book tour.
 
2007-05-31 12:43:31 PM  
I ordered mine. Should get it next week. Can't wait
 
2007-05-31 12:43:41 PM  
Did you read the first review, hateration:
Meh, lame attempt at a cash-in, May 31, 2007
By pilto "pilto" (USA) - See all my reviews

This book is an example of the cashing-in that has been going on at Fark for the last year or so. If you have ever read Fark, you have read most of this book. If you haven't read Fark, or even heard of it, then there is really no reason to believe that a guy that hosts a message board for a living knows squat about news.

The edge that Fark had before is gone. This is directly related to Mr. Curtis and his heavy handed mods cutting out the edginess in favor of ad revenue. Fark has jumped the shark and this book is simply proof of that.

Way ahead of ya Drew.

Bought it months ago on Amazon and it shipped today!

Scheduled arrival on my birthday. SWEET!
 
2007-05-31 12:44:15 PM  
Can you get Stephen King to sign it for me?
 
2007-05-31 12:45:04 PM  
Yeah that first review is pretty funny. A guy that doesn't like Fark who still reads regularly. Wonders will never cease
 
2007-05-31 12:45:12 PM  
Drew

How will you make sure that the same book doesn't get used to get multiple beers?
 
2007-05-31 12:45:25 PM  
A `real' beer or an `American' beer?
I'm fussy.
 
2007-05-31 12:45:32 PM  
Fbxrd?
 
2007-05-31 12:46:00 PM  
toejam: If I buy you a beer, can I get a free book?

I wish to hell I'd thought of this at the NYC Fark Party last Saturday.

See you at Astor Place on Tuesday, Drew! And congrats!
 
2007-05-31 12:46:09 PM  
Man, I bought it presale at Amazon and it'll be delivered on Saturday. Then I met Drew at a bar in DC and bought him a beer. I lose.
 
2007-05-31 12:46:10 PM  
only if the book costs less than the most expensive beer in the joint
 
2007-05-31 12:46:21 PM  
Drew:

"So here's an incentive to buy the book: I'll buy you a beer if you do."

The book should have come with a beer already.
And none of that crappy stuff, either. I'm talking good beer.
Or at least you should have shipped a keg and cups to all bookstores.
 
2007-05-31 12:46:25 PM  
i can't wait for the broadway musical
 
2007-05-31 12:46:40 PM  
Drew: He'll get over it.

FAIL.
 
2007-05-31 12:47:25 PM  
I'm gonna head to the book store when I go out for lunch, I want to make sure some of my genius is quoted in it before I buy it.
 
2007-05-31 12:47:52 PM  
I pre-ordered the minute I saw the link. I'm guessing I was in the first hundred or so to order. I hope you'll make it to Phoenix some day. I'd love to have a Fat Tire with ya.
Later

2007-05-31 12:47:54 PM

2007-05-31 12:48:05 PM  
I work at a newspaper and I am looking forward to reading it.
Let Drew tell me what I'm doing wrong.
 
2007-05-31 12:48:15 PM  
So I guess anything Drew posts gets greenlit? Hmm...somfin soundz fishy.
 
2007-05-31 12:48:28 PM  
40below: I see no Canadian stops on this book tour.

See the other thread aboot this. It may be coming if they can figure oot what to do aboot the Cdn rights.
 
2007-05-31 12:48:55 PM  
submitter: Buy it today and Drew will buy you a beer

What will you buy me if I preordered it more than three months ago?
 
2007-05-31 12:49:30 PM  
And yes I'll honor pre-orders as well, because why not. More reason to drink beer
 
2007-05-31 12:49:50 PM  
Coming to St. Louis, Drew? I'll buy your book and buy YOU a beer. And then maybe later we could...you know...
talk about the book some more
 
2007-05-31 12:49:59 PM  
How dare you try to make money Drew!! I am insulted beyond all means to express myself.
 
2007-05-31 12:50:06 PM  
Yes, but will my beer have a roofie in it?
 
2007-05-31 12:50:21 PM  
How about game of "Let's Make A Deal"? You cancel FarkTV and go back to the old format, I'll buy the book. I have enough beer already.
 
2007-05-31 12:50:34 PM  
Drew: And yes I'll honor pre-orders as well, because why not. More reason to drink beer

Sweet. Are you touring with the book? And if so, when will you be around DC again?
 
2007-05-31 12:51:00 PM  
Any word on if there is going to be an Austin Fark Party when the Magical Mystery Tour...er I mean Book Signing Tour hits town?

jaylectricity: So I guess anything Drew posts gets greenlit? Hmm...somfin soundz fishy.

Maybe he's just way more cleverer than you.
 
2007-05-31 12:51:11 PM  
Drew: Book tour info is here.

Bummer.
 
2007-05-31 12:51:20 PM  
Heh, nice review on Amazon.
 
2007-05-31 12:51:44 PM  
MyNameIsNotMervGriffin: What will you buy me if I preordered it more than three months ago?

A three-month-old-beer, what else?
 
2007-05-31 12:51:59 PM  
So when are you next in London?
