What happened to Newman? Will I still get my mail?

Great. Another Indian thread.

That is one of the most despicable, racist headlines I've read here in a while. What the fark does that even mean?

FYI, the Times of India is a legitimate news organization. Just because people are foreign or non-white doesn't give you a free pass to spout off shiat like that.

This kind of shiat is why I don't feel comfortable ever again giving $5 per month or any kind of real contribution to the site

The actor and humanitarian insisted that his medical crisis was nothing more than treatment of athlete's foot and "hair loss".

On a serious note, this could become serious. My sister's best friend's friend for life knew a dentist in her home town that had athlete's foot and hair loss; it turned into genital warts and then into lung cancer.

I bought the Weekly World News just for the cover alone: "Drinking Beer Cures baldness!" It shows a guy drinking beer while standing on his head. Yeah I'm not sure how that's relevant either, but it is stuck to my refrigerator.

Anyway, if you're Paul Newman, you can damn well demand treatment at finest medical facilities for your athelete's foot.

/Because he's Paul Newman, dammit!
//and his foot farking itches.

Hair loss is secondary to having a small penis among males.

Luckily I'm well hung and have a receding hairline at a young age so it evens out.

Looking frail? The man's eighty-three. That's what happens when you get old.

You haven't been following Fark for the past couple of days then. Both of those stories were actually reported by the India Times. Also, both stories did not take place in India.

For a casual observer though, yeah the headline appears racist. Not the brightest greenlight especially when I'm submitting genius headlines every minute.

I actually read the albino story.. Didn't know it was in the Times of India, knew that it wasn't in India. It just struck a chord with me, because I've long been familiar with some of those papers like the Times of India.

Also, I'm pissed that there's no News Flash concerning are air strike which just killed 11 Pakistani troops on the Afghan border. You know, the military whose losses in this "War" on "Terror" are comparable to our in Iraq

I'm sure there are huge demonstrations all over Pakistan over the bombing, probably violent ones. But until the US embassy in Islamabad is bombed into oblivion, CNN will continue to focus on any drop of nectar that drips from the plump lips of Barrack Hussein Obama.

Amazing over the top national bus ornamentation fetish gone mad. Still using Bedfords when Tataloka is right next door.Pak is to trucks what BKK is to Tuk-Tuks what Cuba is to cars what Bangladesh is to rickshaws.
