They stole the idea from Homer Simpson's half brother !
I saw the episode.

I want what the dog is eating

I bet it works if you stick it next to Dubya's head.

If only they would design one for women.
 
2002-10-10 12:41:05 AM  
Simpson's did it!

No, the dog doesn't want steak..
It wants baby.

Tastes like pork

Interesting how they neglected to mention the anal probe.

I only cry when I have a load in my pants.

haha, clever tagline. Good use of recycling.

"Wahhhhhhh!"

Translation: "I'm exercising my lungs!"

your dog wants a shag with another dog

Too bad it's in Catalan. No one understands it.

Baby monitor:

"I want to revolt and bomb tourist areas"
"Where is my language spoken?"
"I am tired of Real Madrid cheating"
"If Breton can have their own language back, why can't we?"
"Change my diaper or feed me, wipe me or burp me"

"A Spanish inventor, intrigued by his son's incessant crying,"

this device probably works well on most liberals...

cry 1 (waaaaah) = the rich don't deserve the money they've earned

cry 2 (wahahaha) = we need to give more money to people who don't work

cry 3 (whhaahhaa) = i should be able to pump out as many kids as i want and YOU should have to pay for them...

cry 4 (whhhaaaa) = other people should pay for my health care, prescription drugs, etc...

and cry 5 (WHHHHAAAAAAA) we were too stupid to figure out a simple ballot (designed and approved by democrat) and they STOLE the election...

Works equally well on conservatives:

cry 1 (waaah) = "Dubya's not really as dumb as he sounds....."

cry 2 (waaahahaha) = "Everybody's out to get rich, white, protestant males."

cry 3 (whhhahhhaa) = "Seriously, I can't figure out why everyone thinks he so dumb...."

cry 4 (buhbuhbuhbuhhht) = "Who cares if he's incompetent? Clinton got a blow job. That's a zillion times worse.)

cry 5 (WHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAA) = "They pre-empted Rush for a baseball game. How will I know what to think?!?"

Real translation: "If you won't let be get back inside, at least let me suck on your boobies."

The duck's drinking the water!
 
2002-10-10 01:05:43 AM  
cool thread!

a fark cliche: "your dog wants steak"...
a flame war between conservatives and liberals...
and a reference to the basque separatist movement...

already.

PRICELESS!
 
2002-10-10 01:15:28 AM  
Sociopath, TYVM...

Jbc, you dropped the ball.

Cry #1 should have been "I can't stand the liberal bias in the media anymore!"

Frankly I thought the 'Liberals' one was pretty telegraphed. I wanted to get the "Uncle Herby" reference in there 1st, but had to settle for going the alternate route.
 
2002-10-10 01:15:39 AM  
What the fark happened to my comment? As I said before, I wonder if it only works with Spanish babies, or if it's multilingual!

This leash demeans us both.

(Ohhh, it works for dogs AND Babies!)

"Lavish attention on me and entertain me."
"I want what the dog's eating."
"Oh no, I've soiled myself. How embarrassing."

Haha, your dog wants steak. Great new Farkism

Ah, fark the filter...

I watched the Unkie Herb episode tonight.

I wonder if the researchers used Oscilloscopes 'R Us brand oscilloscopes.

"...turn off that damn Raffi record!"
 
2002-10-10 05:57:46 AM  
...as i recall, that same bird was involved in a near-critical explosion in the one where homer was a fat mumu dude.
 
2002-10-10 06:09:55 AM  
Peter_hook, you really messed that one up...

"I want to revolt and bomb tourist areas"
Those are the Basque people asshat, not the Catalonians, which are pretty happy with their current situation
"I am tired of Real Madrid cheating"
Real Madrid OWNZ JOO!
"If Breton can have their own language back, why can't we?"
Breton has a lot less linguistic independence than Cataluña has, and a lot more Catalonians can speak in Cataln than Bretonians(?) can speak in Breton.

Wow, that's weird, it lets you do the ñ, but e with an accent gets changed to a plain e and an a with an accent gets eaten.
 
2002-10-10 08:56:23 AM  
Sweet headline.
I guess someone already beat me to the Herb Powell pic.
 
2002-10-10 08:59:23 AM  
This thing's amazing! I didn't even know I had a dog!

Doug: Get his bowl quick, or he'll kill us!

Bob: Yeah, he's got a funny look in his eye, eh?

this leash demeans us both
 
2002-10-10 12:58:23 PM  
Not to beat this one dead... Clntion getting head isn't the problem, he lied about it and was caught in his lie, then lied about lieing about it. That't the problem.

If Dubya got head in the Oval office, he would be giving high-fives about it, get caught giving High-Fives, and then give high-Fives about giving High-fives.

PopeDX

I was just being silly about the basque/catalon thing.

I personally cheer for Real Madrid, however the root of the joke was all those years Barcelona was forced to "lose" by herr dictator

les bretagnes are a small minority. they are just experiencing a "language revival" recently, it's not very strong. but it is officially recognised, and without any bloodshed.

sadly i could have gotten in some kurdistan reference had i taken more time. dang!

This inventor demeans us both.

SIMPSONS DID IT!

This invention will soon be followed up by my great idea..... you see, you mix a Love-o-matic novelty machine with a old man....and you get "Love-Matic Grandpa......oh and how about Cheeseburger Earmuffs?

Worst rip-off ever......
