Obvious. Boring. I've read funnier parking tickets.

I find it interesting that this "satirical" story should appear on the same page as a link to a "Legal Age Countdown" site for the Olsen Twins. Can we say Hypocrites?

I believe so

Oh, and Boobies

Broken Newz: Like The Onion, but without the funny.
2003-03-14 10:55:11 AM  
Oops. Missed Boobies while typing that rant.

That'll learn me.

I'd hi ... oh, nevermind.

Maybe it's one of those funny stories that'll make us chuckle at a later time.

Or maybe not.

Hmm, making fun of Catholic priests...

How challenging.

The headline is all you really need to read....it goes downhill after that.
2003-03-14 11:03:31 AM  
Best headline ever
2003-03-14 11:05:07 AM  
Broken Newz has never been funny and probably never will.

LongElf - in theory you are wrong because they are waiting for the girls to be of "Legal Age." Most priests would rather go for the pre-puberty. In any case, the story and website as a whole suck my ass.
2003-03-14 11:07:45 AM  
Didn't read the article, the headline made me laugh enough by itself.
2003-03-14 11:08:19 AM  
LongElf - oh sorry, and to follow up; Boobies!
2003-03-14 11:18:04 AM  
Depafeo (I can't do bold)

My point here I think is that waiting for them to become legal would imply that they are already thinking of them in terms of the old bouncy-bouncy jiggy-jiggy (a technical term). Doesn't thinking about minors in a sexual way indicate a sick and twisted psyche? Is this how paedophiles start out?

Or maybe they're just planning ahead.
2003-03-14 11:18:42 AM  
Have you seen their photoshops?

2003-03-14 11:20:51 AM  
LongElf, you have been farking for how long? A few weeks? You have already joined the 20 retards that have nothing better to do that jump on other sites to compensate for achieving nothing with their lives. Here is a little hint, long ago....fark was a community, not a battleground.
2003-03-14 11:24:58 AM  
LongElf - Good point.
2003-03-14 11:26:34 AM  

Err...sorry, did I miss something? I'm not having a go at Fark or anyone on it, nor do I wish to turn it into a battleground. I am merely discussing with Depafeo the merits or otherwise of the story in question. I thought that's what people in a community did? My beef is with the website, not Fark. And I'm not the only person complaining about the quality of the article and the site. Why are you coming down on me?

Get back under you're bridge, Troll. I don't care how long you've lived here.
2003-03-14 11:27:13 AM  
Err... "your".

Or maybe you are a bridge? Who knows?
2003-03-14 11:27:46 AM  
One, two, three, four, I declare a thread war.

sorry, I am we todd did.

Thanx man

Hard on
This is how you do the Olsen Twins

Hard off
This is how you pee

Pigeonholing the internet, creating a false dichotomy between battleground and community... The Vatican got stripped of its full Swiss mercenary military since 1859, under Swiss law. What am I getting at? I thought it was funny because a problem is being solved. The problem was the Catholic church may as well have been a front for NAMBLA. Are the Catholics famous for ignoring reality? You decide: FACT - it was only 19 (nineteen) years ago that the Vatican first conceeded that he Earth orbits the sun and not vice-verse (that's 25 years after man on the moon!!). The fact is that no man is more or less than a man. There will never be a shortage of spiritual desperados that tell you "Your money or your afterlife." Talk to God yourself if your into that; you don't need those guys (guilt, inc.) to make you feel good after making you feel bad.

There's nothing unfunnier than thunderingly obvious satire.
2003-03-14 11:45:25 AM  
The thing is will the olson twins still be hot by the time they reach eighteen? I'd rather move to utah marry both of them and do em tomorrow.
2003-03-14 12:49:02 PM  
Funny headline. Unfortunately, the article is overkill.
2003-03-14 12:49:41 PM  

MARRY THEM???? Judas H Priest, Beer, are you mad, or just too freakiing young to have common sense?

Marry Them??

You really need to look at this. Deal with that - times 2 - everyday for just a week, and you'll pray for death.
2003-03-14 01:17:47 PM  
I'm not going to even read the article. Yawn. Had enough of this story.

Only about 0.001% of priests have been convicted. That means most haven't. Deal with it.

Farking Onion clones.

Kill me now. Does ANYONE find these funny??? I mean really... They should just stop trying.
2003-03-14 06:16:27 PM  
Onion clone? Wow, that was an original comment. We better shut down our site now. Going back to our day jobs.

And yes, most people find us funny. The other watch wrestling
2003-03-14 07:04:32 PM  
how clever
2003-03-14 09:44:08 PM  
Farkin lame.

Leave it to the people who can actually be funny... The Onion can actually pull it off.
