A message from Drew Curtis:  
________________________ 

We're about halfway through May now and industry-wide ad revenues are still at 50% of what they were.  Thanks to folks stepping up and buying TotalFark, BareFark and Farks2Give subscriptions and the new OhFark badge, we've got a couple months of breathing room - thanks so much to everyone who pulled the trigger.  If you haven't done so yourself and you have the means to, now would be an excellent time to jump in. Also, special thanks to LazyAtWork for making the supreme sacrifice of eBaying his Guinness bar towel, to the hoopy frood Farker who bought it, and for the TotalFark subscriptions that were purchased as a result.  Thank you!

On this week's Fark and Schnitt podcast, we brought Brooke Binkowski from Truth or Fiction back to do a deep dive into both the Plandemic conspiracy theory and Jacob Wohl, who must have some sort of humiliation fetish as far as we can tell.  

Also, today through Friday, Dallan and I will be livestreaming daily at my Twitch channel.  We're also hosting a movie night on Friday -- still haven't nailed down which movie, but we should have it by Thursday.  Keep an eye on Fark for start times, it moves around due to our respective schedules, but the good news is if you miss it, the videos are saved on my Twitch channel so you can catch up later. We're doing tonight's livestream at 7 Eastern time.

We now return you to your usual Fark NotNewsletter.

About Fartist Friday:
Fartist Friday is a weekly contest to help keep you entertained by giving you a way to show off your artistic skills - or lack thereof - during this time of social distancing. The winners of the Fartist Friday contests will be named in the following Fark NotNewsletter, where we'll also announce the theme for the next contest. Fartist Friday contests will be submitted Thursdays and will show up on Fark's main page on Fridays, and will close to both comments and voting at the end of the day (midnight Eastern) on Sundays. All times are approximate because we're all drunk. We're asking each person to limit their entries to three per contest. We might change things up depending on feedback. Please contact Farkback to let us know what you think, and feel free to submit your own Fartist Friday ideas.

Farktography is Fark's weekly photography contest. If you would like to suggest a Farktography theme, please contact Elsinore.


Beyond Fark

We're very sad to have learned of the recent loss of longtime Farker Sid_6.7. He was a Farker for nearly 18 years, and was especially active in Fark's politics discussion threads. Thank you to the family member who reached out to let us know. Our love and sympathy goes out to Sid_6.7's family and friends. Farkers can visit Sid_6.7's memorial thread and express condolences here.


Fark Weird News Quiz (brought to you by ox45tallboy)

Another fun time on the quiz last week, with the socially distanced 1000 club open (sort of) as long as everyone wears masks and we drink our beer from 6' straws. terrybear takes top honors with  1019, followed by VicKevlar in second with 1007 and Myk-House of El in third with 1006. Cock Robin takes fourth with 992, and sprgrss makes fifth with 992.

The hardest question on the Hard Quiz was over which actor has received the most Academy Award nominations for a male actor. Only 44% of quiztakers knew that it was the 83-year-old Jack Nicholson who held that distinction with 12 nominations. His first came for the 1969 film Easy Rider, and his last for 2003's About Schmidt. He has won three times, for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest,. Terms of Endearment, and As Good as it Gets. Dustin Hoffman has been nominated 7 times, and Gene Hackman 5 times.

The easiest question on the Hard Quiz was over the recipe that IKEA released on one of their standard "instruction cards" that never tells you what to do with that last #5 screw. 96% of quiztakers knew that they could now make the stores Swedish Meatballs "at höme" even if they didn't have a hex key. No word on how many folks tries and still had them fall apart in the oven.

The hardest question on the Easy Quiz was over where to get a chocolate covered vegan ice cream bar. Only 58% of quiztakers knew that Dairy Queen had relaunched their signature Dilly Bar in vegan form, made with coconut milk. TCBY has vegan options, but none in bar form. Pity that, everyone knows that things sell better onnastick, as CMOT Dibbler would say.

The easiest question on the Easy Quiz was over the new ESPN series "The Last Dance". 93% of quiztakers knew that the series was based on the career of Michael Jordan, which is somewhat confusing as he did have another dance with the Washington Wizards after his second retirement. The show is breaking records as Americans seem desperate for new sports programming, although South Korean baseball is also starting to pick up in popularity.

Congratulations to the winners, and we'll be doing it all again this week!

People do a lot of creative dishes with bee larvae, so I believe that murder hornets larvae should just as well. Plus they area good source of protien and fat, thereby fitting in with the whole Paleo-Keto-Wild Harvested-food craze.

I figured someone had a hive that died and gave the dead bees to the chief who plated it as a joke.  I imagine the staff looking through the kitchen door cracking up as they tasted it.

Yo DisseminationMonkey (or Drew), just a thought. You've kindly noted the passing of Sid_6.7 in this newsletter.

Whether here in the NotNewsletter or in the memorial thread, it would be cool if you were able to harvest some of the top voted posts of a farker into either their memorial  thread or the newsletter.

I realize it's an unpaid gig. Maybe there's a way that a script could be contrived that would harvest the top 10 voted comments of a memorialized farker. Not sure about your database structure but it shouldn't be a difficult SQL script.

Just a thought.
