So let me get this straight….people actually make fun of irl farmers and say they’re uneducated hicks, etc…. but somehow online farming is now the cool thing to do?? Why doesn’t anyone make fun of the- oh, wait. Nevermind.
“Darnville” doesn’t really capture my feelings towards this game. I mean, it’s not like every time I see my Facebook news feed my response is something like “oh, darn, look at those silly people and their Farmville awards!”
I propose that we rename this Lamebook thread Whatthefuckville.
“Urrrg…man, what a night…I must’ve had 10 shots of vodka last night…passed out…anyway, lemme check Facebook. Hey, what’s this? The ultra-rare platinum cow? Wait a minute, that’s not an item drop. You can only get the platinum cow if you pay…OH SHIT, WHERE’S MY CREDIT CARD STATEMENT?!”
The world is starving and people farm on facebook. Yes, the United States has more food than they need, and so does half of the rest of the world.
But what about the other half? They’re starving and dying of malnutrition and you sonsabitches just sit on facebook and farm all day? That’s like seeing the house next door catch fire and hopping online to play some firefighter simulation game instead of helping!
You want to farm? You think it’s fun? Start a garden in your backyard! Grow some tomatoes and eat them on a pizza with pesto and mozarella!
My friend Oscar just started planting things last year and now Oscar has a heap of apples, some carrots too.
mccowles-I mean no insult, but are seriously judging people for ‘farming on facebook’ when you are on a site making fun of people?
I enjoy this site immensely and I also enjoy FarmTown on Facebook. I don’t think it makes me a bad person. I also don’t like bugs and whatnot which you would get on a ‘real farm or garden’. It’s just a harmless piece of fun..much like what this site is.
I certainly don’t think you can make any comparisons with your fire next door slash fire fighting simulation. That is a bit far fetched.
Yeah, I was just kidding. I don’t know anyone named Oscar and I’d rather not get my hands dirty.
Sorry, I was getting bored at work and decided to pretend to be offended by farmville. I assumed someone would reply with something mean spirited, but you were nothing but nice and now I feel bad, haha.
I think I’ll take a nap when I get home and then watch last week’s episode of House.
@lols – I wish more people could figure that out!
wtf did they put a take pictures of your farm thing on there for, so many friends are now hidden from my news feed because i got sick of those fucking things
I’m only interested if the pink cow poops “PROM?” on a field.
Farmville. Bollocks to it. I’m with you, flips, there are so many FB friends that are invisible on my feed now thanks to that shite. By all means, play your daft FB games, but do you HAVE to broadcast what you’re doing on it? Really?
@lols, there’s such a thing as skipping the “publish to wall” option when you’re playing shitty games and taking shitty quizzes, for those of you “butthurt” people who don’t have a fucking clue.
I honestly don’t care if you play farmville. We all have our guilty pleasures. I for instance enjoy taking shitty quizzes about which Twilight character I am, but I don’t go around broadcasting the results to the world, cause I know, NO ONE CARES!
I don’t think it matters that Adam posted something funny he’d seen somewhere else. At least it takes a bit more effort than that crappy Status Shuffle some people use – some of those comments aren’t even funny. Maybe he should have used speech marks.
“They said on the news that there’s a civil war in Madagascar. I’ve seen it six times, and there isn’t”
FFS = Friends For Sale, haha. You buy your friends (or other people on Facebook that play the game) and then you make them “do chores” for other friends. It’s ridiculously stupid and mindless, but I’m trying to get to the top level, then I’m going to quit and not tell anyone that I ever played it to begin with.
I grew up near Niagara Falls (US Side), so we were pretty huge into Hockey up there. I now live in the midwest and hate the “hockey sucks” mentality down here.
