So wait a sec... stuff we say really matters? Reporters quoting Farkers?

Two words: AWE-SOME!
2003-03-12 08:05:10 PM  
Behold the power of Fark.
2003-03-12 09:01:20 PM  
"Centrino is the name of my coke dealer,"

but can I download porn faster

and they claimed that cut to the heart of the matter...

wow, speachless
2003-03-12 09:22:37 PM  
This officially means the world is ending, right?

"Dan Rather, saying Good Night, and ..."
2003-03-12 09:22:50 PM  
Did anybody else get a horribly annoying audio along with an ad for absolut somethingorother? There should be warnings about shiat like that...
2003-03-12 09:23:00 PM  
What's Shawn Langlois's fark handle?
2003-03-12 09:23:07 PM  
So they just fired their reporters and copied and paste from Fark now?
2003-03-12 09:23:29 PM  
Wow! I... Uh, that is... the Centrino... And Intel. Wait. Well, Marketwatch...

Ah, fark it. I got nothing.
2003-03-12 09:23:59 PM  
"What a coincidence, my coke dealer's name is Centrino."

Yep, they sure do well on news coverage.
2003-03-12 09:24:09 PM  
Well, lookie there. We're good for something other than bringing down other folks web sites.
2003-03-12 09:24:32 PM  
MikMir and his coke dealer.... haha. Your famous mir.
good stuff...
2003-03-12 09:24:43 PM  
What? My big moment and I missed it?!!!!
2003-03-12 09:24:43 PM  
Man I wish I'd gotten in on the original thread. Hell, more people are going to get their news from Fark in the near future than the Clinton News Network (CNN) at this rate.
I just wonder if someone actually gets paid to read Fark all day, or if they're lurking around at their desk and happen to fall on something. I want that job.
2003-03-12 09:24:56 PM  
hope the lucky mentioned ones enjoy your 15 minutes... :p

/truly truly scared
2003-03-12 09:24:57 PM  
Ah, but there's a serious side to those plucky little Fark'ers.

obviously the writer hasn't been farking for very long
2003-03-12 09:25:21 PM  
Welcome to MarketFark.com where the destruction of the economy begins... what is wrong with CBS????
2003-03-12 09:26:16 PM  
The new phone books are in! The new phone books are in!
2003-03-12 09:26:17 PM  
Heh. Congratulations, Fark!
2003-03-12 09:26:31 PM  
Why the fark did they decide to quote fark?
2003-03-12 09:27:13 PM  
it wasnt "I CAN download porn faster" its "can i download porn faster"

"Centrino is the name of my coke dealer,",, That was like the funniest thing ever.
2003-03-12 09:27:27 PM  
hmmmm, there are a lot more people reading these threads than we thought!

it's cool though that farkers opinions are being heard!
2003-03-12 09:27:30 PM  
hahahahahah! they didnt finish the damn quote!!! should have been:

"But can I download pr0n faster with it, and fap off with more joy and less keyboard cleaning? No? Then bugger off."
2003-03-12 09:27:44 PM  
I'm not sure whether my faith in humanity is restored, or this was the final nail in the coffin of that faith.
2003-03-12 09:27:49 PM  
I just wonder if someone actually gets paid to read Fark all day

some people do. Its called unemployment.
2003-03-12 09:27:56 PM  
In other news, it's the slowest news day... ever.

Wow, reporters quoting message boards for their entire story.



OK, I'll admit it - I'm just jealous I wasn't in the original thread.

2003-03-12 09:28:01 PM  
The Power of FARK

haha, classic stuff. Perhaps world domination isn't that far fetched?
2003-03-12 09:28:03 PM  
to quote shawn langlois quoting BlackVampyr most likely quoting someone else: "This makes my head hurt."
2003-03-12 09:29:07 PM  
Didn't realize there's a filter on the phrase F;b;-;is;the father. So my above post goes from 3% funny to .02% funny.
2003-03-12 09:30:07 PM  
Ok I am sitting here laughing my ass off by my self because of the "quotes" on that story.

But can I download Porn faster? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Cantrino is the name of my Coke dealer. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I wonder if those mentioned could use this on their resume...
2003-03-12 09:30:34 PM  
damn i knew i should have posted in that thread!!! doh!
2003-03-12 09:31:18 PM  
2003-03-12 09:31:32 PM  
I'm gonna start a news agency and only use Farkers as sources. It's easier than actual work.
2003-03-12 09:32:32 PM  
Ego levels reaching critical mass! I advise we abandon ship before the server breaches!

Just don't let it go to your heads.

Oh Hell, 1 website once quoted me for saying "David Schwimmer is a gay jew. He's making other jews look bad." when I was posting on another message board and I freaked but nobody gave a damn. So let it go.
2003-03-12 09:32:46 PM  

Why is that giving me flashbacks to cartoons in grade school?

Is he like, some evil dude?
2003-03-12 09:32:53 PM  
Id like to repeat my post from the original thread:
2003-03-12 09:34:21 PM  
and the horsemen are saddling up
2003-03-12 09:34:24 PM  
I miss all the trendy threads -- oh, and now we're gonna get an influx of folks that actually read 'marketwatch'

/there goes the neighborhood
2003-03-12 09:34:30 PM  
Can you say "slow news day"?
2003-03-12 09:35:11 PM  
We are the last refuge of the truth. Everyone else has been Ashcrofted. Beware Drew, they know now and they'll be ...

(sound of door being kicked in and Bibles being thrown) --- no I'm not THAT Curtis aigh stop throwing Bibles!
2003-03-12 09:37:28 PM  
A little while back there was that whole Microsoft / porno thing.

Some farkin web site in ITALY picked up the story, and linked to my pictures for like, weeks. Crazy.

My bandwidth usage on one 30-40K picture was like, a GIG.

[image from home.kc.rr.com too old to be available]
2003-03-12 09:37:57 PM  
For some reason, all I could think about was that [image from i.mktw.net too old to be available] would look ace in a tutu.

That's not gay is it?
2003-03-12 09:38:16 PM  
Can you say "slow news day"?

well, a girl missing for 9 months was found alive. I guess thats slow news in your book.
2003-03-12 09:38:25 PM  
I thought the headline read "Cherrios" for some reason.
2003-03-12 09:38:27 PM  
I think nostradamus wrote about this
2003-03-12 09:39:05 PM  
Or, as BlackVampyr aptly put it: "This makes my head hurt."

Heh. Funny shiat this article is. I love the way news organizations are starting to pay attention to Fark and what people say in the comments. Soon, we shall own them all.
2003-03-12 09:39:22 PM  
It seems that Fark has become a comedy bank from which any bypasser may withdrawl for free. It's as though Fark were a comedic sweat shop - employing the masses for nothing but a few scattered boobies links. I'm sure that network TV executives could fire all of the writers for the so-called "sitcoms" and produce shows that are at least mildly amusing from the comments found on Fark along. Hey, maybe Scrubs has already undertaken this endeavor?
