Not Fark

I've been reading Fark for about five years now I guess. My "membership" says 2002, but I was pretty sure I was reading it before that. Doesn't matter. Over the last few years, I've done my part and submitted dozens and dozens of headlines. Some repeats, some I thought were both topical, timely and clever, but for some reason didn't make the cut.

Here are the last three months of missed opportunities. (These numbers are how many TotalFark people commented on it before it was axed.)

Why am I posting this? Because I'm weird and so far no one has tried to stop me.

Carry on.
