He's an asshole!
November 4, 2004 2:36 AM   Subscribe

Imminent job openings at CNN... Open the link and right click the picture of Bush and wife, click "Save Picture/Image" and look at the filename! In the words of a certain Denis Leary, "He's an asshole, asshole, asshole-e-o-oe-oh". I suggest someone mirrors this ASAP!

Remember the BBC article about obese children and fast food? I think it was linked here.

Anyway, it had a picture of a fat kid at McDonald's, and some wag had decided to name it Kids_McFatty... or something like that.

Perhaps you should have mirrored it or gotten a screenshot first.

Gone within 10 minutes. Ah well, before it linked to:

Which is, if you click on it - still there.

Copying metaxa's link into the go bar worked for me. Haha, that is a good one. (asshole.jpg is the image saved on netscape.com)

Sheez. Can't you people do any better than this? I mean, y'all are s'posed to be self-righteous spewers of ripe, steaming, feculent shit, right? You're s'posed to be filled with hate 'n' all, right? Shouldn't this be yuk-city? Sheez, whatta buncha wimps...

This was nice and appropriate because Bush is on the news right now "reaching out" across the aisle, hmm, maybe that should be reaching out across the asshole?

Joi Ito has the scoop, taken before it was removed from CNN.

A Web image and text disparaging President and Mrs. Bush currently circulating on the Internet was not created, disseminated or posted by CNN at any time, as is alleged. It was done by an employee of Netscape and posted on Netscape.com. CNN had no knowledge of it until it surfaced on other Websites. CNN has requested an immediate apology from Netscape.

"The Netscape employee has been terminated"


I assume that means "fired", and not...you know.

Actually, Jonas had the scoop. Joi Ito even gives him credit.
