I thought this would be about an article disparaging british soccer hooligans when I read the headline. not that UK i guess
2002-01-04 01:05:17 PM  
What happened to the 404'ed Photoshop? That was some of the best stuff in months, and it gets deleted?

2002-01-04 01:05:26 PM  
Oh boo. I thought it was about football (real football) over here. Nevermind. Time to go and get drunk, rehearse, and bang things loudly with my sticks.

It's redemption for the southern fried farkers today!

Release the hounds!!!!

A speech on economics by Mush Mouth would make more sense than this article.

This just in, Kentuckians burn down Wembley Stadium in confusion over Fark headline. Shootin' irons heard as far away as Scotland.

So what if they people in the UK are mad? They aren't allowed to own any good guns.

Just on our way to the game....uHUH...

I was so hoping this was making fun of the brits. Mocking hillbillies?? Where's the sport in that?

Nurse Judy `Big Hoobies' Hopkins of Louisville...

Does everyone in Kentucky have a name like this?

If I lived in Ky, my name would be

John 'Hung like a horse' DX

Ok, I wanted Catholic High School Girls in Trouble, but it would be NSFW (too tired to apply pasties).

It's official. You can't make jokes about anybody.

Except maybe Farkers.

When the hell are people--all people--gonna learn to laugh at themselves a little bit? I'm part Scottish, but I don't fly into a rage when Groundskeeper Willy gets drunk or starts a soccer riot, or gets drunk, or...well, you see what I mean, right?
2002-01-04 01:18:57 PM  
They play REAL football 'over there'? Do you mean soccer? The no real contact sport of running around for a few hours and rarely scoring?

Sound fun. Kinda like watching goldfish.

"I despise people who are bigoted toward Eastern Kentucky just as much as I despise people who are bigoted toward blacks or any other minority.''

Those poor misunderstood people. Kentuckians have had it rough.
2002-01-04 01:19:29 PM  
I dont know what they are upset about. the few UK fans that can actually read the web site probably cant comprehend the sarcasm on it. They probably had to be told that he was making fun of them.
2002-01-04 01:21:00 PM  
"The talk-show host was trying to be funny, ``as usual,'' Gentry said."

not funny
2002-01-04 01:24:20 PM  
They should be refered to Apalatian Americans from now on. Or maybe Kentukian Americans, or how about dumb asses? Yeah, dumb asses works.
2002-01-04 01:25:18 PM  
Anarchy at UK.
2002-01-04 01:26:06 PM  
Too Funny!!

Some people need to get the sticks out of their buttocks.

Or is all of Lexington a bunch of Gumps?
2002-01-04 01:26:31 PM  
Damn they got defensive quick, must have hit awfully close to home :)
2002-01-04 01:27:04 PM  

Good one! I like it a lot.
2002-01-04 01:27:48 PM  
Rednecks get bent out of shape when you tease them. Look in the redneck driving in the snow thread. All I said was they were bad drivers, and the hilljacks come out of the wood works screaming at me.

I got 5 death threats from that thread today. That's 2 more than my overall daily average.
2002-01-04 01:29:36 PM  
I must have been given special a special fb- like article submitting filter or something. This is the 2nd day in a row I've submitted a Herald-Leader article in the morning only to have someone else post it later that afternoon. :/
2002-01-04 01:30:23 PM  
oh , BFD. so someone makes fun of people and calls them hillbillies. So?

jebus, you can find more interesting stuff than this in phlegm.
2002-01-04 01:30:44 PM  
The hell you say, boy.....

I'm not allowed to have articles posted anymore either. I know how you feel.
2002-01-04 01:32:10 PM  
I like the hillbilly phrases from the Hazard mayor speaking againt the parody...
``It makes you sick to hear Appalachians downgraded just because some idiot has got his feet wet in the Ohio River,'' said longtime Hazard Mayor Bill Gorman."
``Being an old-time broadcaster myself, I'd use a pointed shoe on him and he'd be sitting out in the street.''

"pointed shoe"! HAW HAW HAW!

"Rednecks get bent out of shape when you tease them."

Sometimes, but it's even more fun when they don't realize you're doing it.
2002-01-04 01:40:15 PM  

You can't call anybody a dumbass until you learn to spell.

Seems like everyone's mad because it's making fun of them, but nobody cares that it's not well written or funny. Sure, making fun of hillbillies is always funny, but some people do it better than others.

"Lexington area spiritual leaders were sent out to the Appalachian towns of Buttcrack, Halitosis, Incestuous and Cirrhosis, Ky., to help stymied Wildcat fans cope."

LMAO! He forgot the hole-in-the-road called Lung Cancer, KY.

You UK fans need to LIGHTEN UP!! It's just a FARKIN' GAME!!
2002-01-04 01:50:08 PM  
I must have submitted one to many moose articles. Or maybe it's because I'm a Redskins fan. That can be offensive.
2002-01-04 01:51:46 PM  
---insert pic of mullet here----

more mullets please. I love Kentucky, the mullet capital of the world.
2002-01-04 04:02:24 PM  
Why are they so mad? They only lost by 2 points.
2002-01-04 05:36:12 PM  
God and I live here....so sad.

Hey GirlyGirl I need a shoulder to cry on.
