I hate it when the gimp gets fiesty
2003-02-27 11:42:46 PM  
ok. i have to say it. Do you guys find maggie's breasts just a little bit distracting as you try to read these threads?
2003-02-27 11:46:55 PM  
From a NewsChannel 5 link:

Witnesses at the scene said the man in the trunk was screaming the entire time he was trying to get away.

Doesn't appear to be prank.
2003-02-28 12:51:14 AM  
Doesn't appear to be prank.

Yeah, because people can't scream unless they're really in danger.

Good point.

That's why I always duct taped them from their elbows to their wrists and from quads to ankles.

If it was in Inglewood, CA no one would even care.

i would agree with Pudintain, but then i noticed it was in Inglewood......hoo ray! for gang-related abductions

I agree that it seems to be some kind of a stunt. Why would they pull up to a grocery store with some guy hancuffed in the trunk?
2003-02-28 04:46:02 AM  
If it was in Inglewood, CA no one would even care.

Actually, the grocery store was an Inglewood. They're a grocery chain in TN (dunno if they have stores in other states or not...none in FL, anyways...)

BTW, that is the oddest headline I think I've ever read. ;-D

2003-02-28 04:55:53 AM  
Yeah, cause I always drive around with men in the trunk of my car. Theyre real handy when you need to know if youve slammed on the brakes too hard cause you hear that *thud* noise. You have to make to sure to get the ones that you can chase around and catch, and not the kind that will instictively run into buildings or crowded areas yelling "HELP! HELP!"

Since there seems to be a new fad to repeat things already done on Jackass, this has to be fake.
2003-02-28 04:56:22 AM  
yeah sounds like a prank to me.
my friends and myself did it a few times just for the heck of it, but then again you could pull off stunts like that in the pre desert storm era.
2003-02-28 04:56:28 AM  
I think this was a dumb stunt
A: Why handcuffs? Rope or tape work as well, and are cheaper. signs point to stunt
B: Why grocery store? Not a likely place for anything, except maybe an audience. signs point to stunt
C: the trunk OPENED? its DAMN hard to open a trunk from the inside (i've tried). signs point to stunt.

If it wasn't a dumb stunt and if they guy didn't have enough sense to run away INTO the store he deserves to be killed. Bout time natural selection began workin its magic again.
2003-02-28 04:56:57 AM  
Sorry. Sorry. I apologize. It was ME. I just wanted to see what kind of a reaction I would get for doing that!

Stay tuned for next week's episode where I take off all my clothes and rape a child!
2003-02-28 05:11:53 AM  
Dont tell mom the babysitter's in the trunk
2003-02-28 05:13:31 AM  
Mannequin, it would be funnier if you wore a clown suit while raping a child.

Well, i'd laugh.
2003-02-28 05:16:43 AM  
new jackass stunt.
2003-02-28 05:17:49 AM  
wow, just read the Boobiess. gusee i'm not the first one who came up with the jackass-brad-pitt-reference.

dude. I'm not as smart and whitty as I thought afterall...
2003-02-28 05:18:55 AM  
boobies... heh heh. forgot that fark filters that premier post thingee...

duuuuude i'm bored...
2003-02-28 05:22:15 AM  
reeks of pranking.
Nashville yokel news network is right on top of it.

2003-02-28 05:22:46 AM  
OK people, In case you have never seen Jackass on MTV(crap), they did this same exact stunt on Jackass (good show). It is some college kids or other people who are doing it to get some laughs. THIS IS VERY OBVIOUS! So obvious it should not have been posted, but this is Fark so every crappy little thing gets posted. Because the more posts the more people return, so now Fark posts everything to get people to come back more and more. Just hope this place does not get as bad as The Onion, that site sucks anymore. The Onion just uses the same joke over and over and over and over. What do you think?
2003-02-28 05:35:52 AM  
i think yo momma

2003-02-28 05:42:35 AM  
Like Hoorayforboobies, I too am amazed that the in-house committees of Jackass experts that Drew has vetting every article let this one get through.
2003-02-28 05:46:26 AM  
Hey, I was on that committee!

We had every reason to let this through. Our Chris Pontius percentage has dropped dramatically ever since the Steve-O stapling incident. We had to rectify the situation ASAP.
2003-02-28 05:57:01 AM  
Whereas I, of course, am too intelligent and educated to stoop to watching such an imbecilic show. Besides, that stapling stunt had me hiding behind a farking cushion.
2003-02-28 05:59:19 AM  
As a seasoned pervert, I can tell you that in these days of national paranoia, it's damned difficult to get your hands on any duct tape - hence the need for handcuffs.

What I'd really like to know is, what was EvilScientist doing trying to escape from the trunk of a car?
2003-02-28 06:14:43 AM  
Maybe he didn't like it in there.
2003-02-28 06:19:55 AM  
Legislation and billions of dollars could solve the problem.
2003-02-28 06:22:28 AM  
Maybe there was no seatbelts in the trunk/boot and he used handcuffs and they stopped so he could stretch his legs?

It's been known to happen...
2003-02-28 06:25:50 AM  
HoorayforBoobies: Perhaps you don't understand how Fark works.

First off, not every little thing gets posted. Any Total Farker can tell you that not even 10% of that which is submitted gets posted.

Secondly, just because this could've been a stunt - or that you are certain that it was a stunt - doesn't mean it cannot be posted or didn't get a couple of chuckles from people. After all, it's not news, it's Fark.com. Were I looking for verified real news stories, I certainly wouldn't be here.

Third, The Onion was sucking in print - long before it was even a website. Yeah, The Onion had it's great stories, especially some great weather maps & horoscopes. But they were reprinting old stories that weren't ever very funny long before they started posting stories online.

And lastly, Fark.com has had the same quality posts since user # 1976 joined. I give it my worst rating yet: 7 thumbs up
2003-02-28 06:29:24 AM  
And try not to take any offense. I'm just tired of people wasting my time & theirs by reading through Fark when they don't like it & complain about it all the time. The only reason I responded to your complaint was because I had a few things to say about The Onion.
2003-02-28 06:29:44 AM  
Or maybe it's a NASA moon-landing style conspiracy to make you think people are running around with handcuffs when , or maybe it was a mass hallucination, or maybe it was a terrorist attack, or maybe I'm bored, and it's not time to go to the pub yet.
2003-02-28 06:32:33 AM  
Or maybe I should have been more careful with my cutting and pasting at the end of that first sentence.
2003-02-28 06:39:59 AM  
MisterSym - perhaps article posting would work better by TotalFarkers voting for it rather than 1 admin choosing it?
2003-02-28 06:55:28 AM  
Jay-Tea:- I completely disagree with that one. Part of what makes FARK what it is is the Admins' choices. It's a quirky site for quirky news. Democracy is just a way of acheiving blandness.
2003-02-28 06:56:59 AM  
Hoorayforboobies : I like the onion, and I think you suck! ;)
2003-02-28 06:58:44 AM  
How does that rule go? I before E except after C when the sound is "E" except for all the farking exceptions like neither and weird.
2003-02-28 07:00:25 AM  
"C: the trunk OPENED? its DAMN hard to open a trunk from the inside (i've tried). signs point to stunt."

Uh... Almost all modern vehicles have a trunk release in the trunk for just such an occasion. It's to stop people from locking people in the trunk and to allow kids to escape if they lock themselves in there.

This reminds me of the time when I was little and we were over my grandmother's house. I was tired, so I opened the trunk and let the back seat down. I then climbed into the trunk and onto the back seat and lied down and closed the trunk door.

Just as I was doing this a car went by... The people turned aroudn and came back and went up to the house and told my parents. :-)
2003-02-28 07:17:09 AM  
JackAss is the 1st thing that came to mind.
2003-02-28 07:18:50 AM  
Jay-Tea: Not a bad suggestion. And that's partially kind of how it works. I mean, if an admin sees a submission that has had a lot of hits and/or comments by Total Farkers, they may post the submission.

But I have to agree w/ Jay_vee - it was the taste of people like Drew & his posse (those that chose - and still choose - what to post) when this site was a wee one that first got me to come here. And it still has the same flavor as back then.

Sure, you're going to strike out on some posts, but everyone thinks something is funny that almost no one else would agree with them on. Personally, I think mimes are funny. There are others that take mimes very, very seriously

Always LOVED this site. Enjoy!

Ugh! Seems as though the randomizer isn't working right now. You can always read the full list.
