For TFers: Putting up the Q3 subtab headlines this morning in Totalfark. Keep an eye out for those.

For non-TFers: Mainpage Q4 headline contest is coming as soon as the others are finished. Probably early this afternoon if I make good time.

For anybody reading this comment who is not a Fark member and has no idea what I'm talking about: Don't mind me, I'm inanimate

I think that's a sign that you need to get a life outside of submitting headlines to Fark.

/I'll start submitting more when I get back from vacation

This Looks Fun: That Hendricks one was hilarious. Kudos.


That was a case of right article, right time.

Other sites probably had the article, but only Fox had the headline worded in that way.

Sometimes, there's a science to this.
