He's making a post... he's checking it twice.

Or.. perhaps not that last part.

Actually it wasn't exactly easy to find that post.

You wanna know the weird thing? If you follow the link, it's actually interesting, even though it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the post.

That is to say, it's not the "These WMDs Cannot Be Found" page again, even though it sounds like it.

Why do you hate MetaFilter so much?

*goes back to check on the 'what did you have for lunch' thread.*

Okay, that's it. I'm taking my gallon of Jinro and heading out to sleep in the street until my head clears.

I say again *click on the link, people*. It's not the page you think it is.

boswell, what happened?

Well, it is at the moment. Linking (or giving written directions) to something that happens to be the number one result on Google for a search string at the moment seems like maybe not such a good idea.

I went to Google, typed in "weapons of mass destruction", and clicked on "I'm feeling lucky."

Would someone like to come over here and help me clean my Yoo Hoo chocolate drink off my keyboard?

Fucking shit-ass Christ allmighty..

Double-posters should all get AIDS and die.

Triple-posters should all get sodomized by steer, get AIDS, and die.

Quadruple-posters should all be forced to first give oral satisfaction to the steer, then get sodomized by said steer, then get AIDS, and finally die.

How to Build a Repost of Mass Destruction:

1. Find quirky blog post about something nobody else will have seen.

2. Compose a post for Metafilter, pointing to the blog post you found, but using the wrong permalink.

3. Watch the post police contort themselves into knots knowing that you intended to quadruple post but, in actual fact, didn't, because you got the permalink wrong.

4. Wish to God that you had actually written your post about the link you mistakenly posted and not the link you thought you were posting.

Metafilter fiddles while the American Empire burns itself ...
In other fictional stories related to Iraq's "WMDs," see today's installment of Bush Lied in the State of the Union

Can I borrow a giant megaphone capable of making me heard all over the 50 states, which I will use to yell, "Wake the hell up, America!" (Although I don't know what we can do now that we've gone over there and pulled Iraq apart. Just up and leave?)

NorthernLite are you trying to introduce legitimate thoughtful discourse into this quadruple post of the only mildly amusing googlebomb?

Do you fucking cunts even read the frontpage anymore? No, of course not, then you would waste valuable time and someone might post that "SUPAR FUNNEH LINX0RZ" before you...

Civil Disobedience, I'd love to hear your ideas on what should happen to MeFiers who post the twentieth comment pointing out that something has been reposted.

One more time, this link, which is the link that kicks of this particular FPP, does *not* have anything to do with this afforementioned page.... it's about the VMyths page, an alert about virus myths. Which would have been a perfectly good FPP. Except for the fact that it was apparently intended to be about the Google WMDs thing. It's all very confusing.

TELEVISION INTERVIEWER: I mean, when we consider some of the threads that are allowed to perpetuate on Metafilter, sometimes I'm just scratching my head.

INTERNET PUNDIT: I know what you mean, Glen.

TELEVISION INTERVIEWER: I mean, take that 26846 thread, the one where the poster screwed up the link.

INTERNET PUNDIT: No pancakes there, Glen.

TELEVISION INTERVIEWER: Yes, and some vague hope that the thread could be salvaged. Ultimately though, fuck!

INTERNET PUNDIT: Um, Glen, I do the talk show circuit every week. Are you sure you can say that on television?

TELEVISION INTERVIEWER: Fuck yeah! I'm tired of being fucked by those cocksuckers in Standards & Practices!

INTERNET PUNDIT: Whatever you say, Glen.

TELEVISION INTERVIEWER: Fucking pancakes. Fucking Metafilter. Fuck you, Scott. I'm sick of your smug fucking smile and that flashy eyewear!

INTERNET PUNDIT: Should I go back to the green room?

TELEVISION INTERVIEWER: No! Fuck you! That MeFi thread has really undone my fucking breeches. The goat's fucking busted. I mean, what does this say for MetaFilter? You of all people, Scott, know that I love Matt Haughey. Hell, I'd give him a kidney in an unsterilized environment.

INTERNET PUNDIT: Glen, maybe you should come to my yoga class with me.
