He really does make it to easy on his critics.
2003-05-01 02:05:18 PM  
Anyone who has not hit their head on something accidently please raise your hand
2003-05-01 02:05:43 PM  
It's funnier than it would be were it anybody else, because he's so damn stupid and he doesn't even know it.

...part of the reason flight crews wear helmets in helos.

looks painful
2003-05-01 02:06:02 PM  
Which head, Vman?
2003-05-01 02:06:06 PM  
Anyone who has hit their head on something accidentally while on camera in front of an audience of potentially millions - billions of people raise your hand

2003-05-01 02:06:29 PM  
oh please....how many times have you bumped your head going into an airplane...
2003-05-01 02:06:37 PM  
I, for one, have never hit my head on anything before. And to think, someone capable of doing such a thing is leading our country? Disgraceful.
2003-05-01 02:06:38 PM  
Surely there's got to be video floating around out there.
2003-05-01 02:06:38 PM  
I would raise my hand Vman but I slammed it in a desk drawer earlier.

Insert Gerald Ford reference here.

That'll teach to liberate Iraq!

It's somehow Clinton's fault. I just know it.
2003-05-01 02:08:10 PM  
I have a bad hitting my head story. I was in Spain and we were touring these old castles there (which are quite plentiful). Anyhoo, apparently people were shorter way back when, because I whacked my head very very hard on the top of a ston doorway. I fell backwards into the rest of my group (I was in front) and hilarity ensued. I was hungover at the time, so I'll use that as my excuse.
2003-05-01 02:08:10 PM  
Well, I'm sure no further damage was done.
2003-05-01 02:08:38 PM  
I can honestly say I've never been so stupid as to hit my head when climbing into a helicopter.
2003-05-01 02:08:40 PM  
Anything for a Bush Bash, Geez.

Like none of you have EVER hit your head on anything, especially after working on your computer under your desk. Geez. Lay the fark off.
2003-05-01 02:08:53 PM  
Everybody who gets on board those choppers hits their head at some point. It's not made for people taller than 5 foot 6.

I almost knocked myself out climbing down the hatch of a LA Class submarine.

Low ceilings suck for tall people.

Accepting the award for Gerald R. Ford.
2003-05-01 02:09:08 PM  

Exactly right. Everyone has done this. Has nothing to do with military expertise, which even in the sarcastic headline is just stupid.
2003-05-01 02:09:14 PM  
But did it knock any sense into him?
2003-05-01 02:09:29 PM  
Doors of Mass Destruction - Lets have a war

Greatest Fark User name I have ever seen.

Male Prostitute!
2003-05-01 02:09:57 PM  
Yeah, well, we all hit our heads on stuff folks, but its FUNNY because its that big dumb idiot's head. Yeah. Big. Dumb. Idiot.

2003-05-01 02:10:01 PM  
He missed all the important parts
2003-05-01 02:10:10 PM  
I hope the helicopter's alright.
2003-05-01 02:10:20 PM  
Sorry, Bass, I didn't see your post.
2003-05-01 02:10:29 PM  
Apparently Karma has opted for a payment plan of small, monthly installments of humiliation in front of millions of people.
2003-05-01 02:10:35 PM  
It's funnier than it would be were it anybody else, because he's so damn stupid and he doesn't even know it.

I am still not convinced that "he's so damn stupid". I guess if something is repeated often enough, it becomes true.
2003-05-01 02:10:58 PM  
I completely agree, Vman. I wish everytime I fell down the stairs, ran into a wall, and hit my head under my bosses' desk.. Well, I wish I had a FARK thread dedicated to me.

I'm lying. I'm unemployed now. :(
2003-05-01 02:11:09 PM  
I look at the picture, I get a spring in my step.
2003-05-01 02:11:28 PM  
Why are the Republicans so defensive when people have a little fun at the President's expense?

A: Because they know he's really a dumbass.
2003-05-01 02:12:45 PM  
In other news, former President Gerald Ford was eaten by wolves today. He was delicious!
2003-05-01 02:13:04 PM  
Calisa -- I've got a desk you can hit your head on if you want to stay in practice...
2003-05-01 02:13:11 PM  
"I guess if something is repeated often enough, it becomes true."

Like the link between Al-Qaeda and Iraq?

He really does make it to easy on his critics.

No, actually his critics are really starting to wear thin with their insistent whining.

G.W. has done a hell of a job as President. I know that's an opening line to a flame war, but it's true. I'm damn glad that he's the one in the White House and not Gore.

I feel sorry for the guy. He inherited a failing economy (you DO remember that it started months before Clinton left office?), tensions with China (remember the spy plane incident?), a hostile press (you DO read Fark, don't you?), and last but not least September 11th and the war on terror.

I for one respect the man and don't give a damn who doesn't like it.

Oh yeah, BTW - Terror attacks are now at their lowest since 1969. Hear that? That's the sound of millions of liberal teeth grinding to a fine, dry powder.
2003-05-01 02:13:44 PM  
Gerald Ford. Remember him? He hit his head once and he has never lived it down. Horray for Bush! May he never live this one down either.
2003-05-01 02:13:55 PM  
Hey, if I'd written a *sensible* headline it would not have been posted and would not have sparked such a lively discussion. Yes, everyone hits their head and Mr. President's military service had little to do with helos, but this connection just had to be made.
2003-05-01 02:13:56 PM  
Shows what happens when Rove and Cheney aren't around.
2003-05-01 02:14:13 PM  
I would take a Draftdodger over a Chickenhawk anyday... it is much cheaper for the nation dont you think ?

Props to George_W_Hussein

All of you Farkers who have ever blown jism on the dress of your intern while you are married raise your hand.

Now point your fat finger and say "I's never had no sex wit dat womans dat Monicum Lewinskies."
2003-05-01 02:15:23 PM  

Got it! Now let's do drowned in a bathtub. And...Action!
2003-05-01 02:16:14 PM  
Hold up, I never heard about Clinton (Bill, not George) hitting his head on anything ... He must have learned a lot from his stint in the military!

(bad head-bang story... I'm 6'4" and was on a family trip to some mines in the UP of Michigan... The guide led us (in the pitch dark mind you) to this "open" spot in the mine and told us we could all stand up straight... WHAM goes my cabbage on the bazillions of tons of rock above me... She apologized profusely...)
2003-05-01 02:16:20 PM  
Who cares if everyone has hit their head accidentally. It happened to bush, thus it's funny.

How many of you haven't choked on a pretzel and passed out, raise your hands.
2003-05-01 02:16:22 PM  
see this is proof positive that bush is dumb. see he hit his head on something! OMG how will our nation ever make it. i even heard a rumor on the internet that he once CHOKED on something two. oh god! every one please pray for our country how will we ever make it?

2003-05-01 02:16:28 PM  
Hey anus- sept 11 attacks were the best thing that ever happened to gw bush.

I'm sorry you're so ignorant, but keep waving that flag!
