Punk'd: DNC Convention Visitors Scoff Up MRC Goof 'Journalists For Obama' T-Shirts
Media Research Center ^ | 09/04/12 | Unattributed

Posted on 09/05/2012 6:12:17 AM PDT by TonyInOhio

As we all know, journalists should not take sides. Reality is another thing, so the MRC created "Journalists for Obama" spoof t-shirts. The irony is many didn't seem to get the joke as evidenced by how quickly a DNC Convention zombie hoarde scoffed up the couple dozen or so given out for free by the MRC field team in Charlotte.

What would have been even funnier is to have had another T-shirt printed up with "Journalists for Objectivity" side by side with the Obama-Ts... but I get it, why waste the money... "objectivity? What Objectivity? we don't need not stinkin' Objectivity, gime that Obama-T"

You can tell they’re democratic voters quick with their hand out for a freebie.

Hahaha! I saw a guy with NPR on his shirt kind of back out of the circle, turn around and with an embarrassed grin meander away. I think he may have realized the problem but seems to have almost fallen for the joke. However, he may have just gotten there too late.

That was my observation as well. I believe the intended term is 'scarf up', and while the definition of 'scarf' is even in keeping with the original slang, it's a term I've heard for a long while.

This sort of error in usage is akin to how often people spell 'lose' loose, as in 'I hate to loose'. That's just plain dumb. IMHO, of course. $:-)

to, too, hear, here, there, they’re, their, then, than - all make me grit my teeth when I’m reading along and the wrong word is used. But to use the wrong word in a headline? EGAD!

I GUESS you guys haven't noticed BUT the ASS emblem has been replaced by the O! The donkey pic has yet to appear in any article of clothing or paper! Just a little side note. These SOCIALIST bastards, the black messiah and his muscle freak wife are ushering in a new communist logo and the RATS haven't even noticed....IDIOTS!! Not even Bubba and his fat wife had enough nerve to replace the DNC national emblem...THESE people ARE EVIL from the pit of HELL!! I'm convinced OBOZO is the high priest of satan! BTW, I thought the dress, which she had to wear Red to compete with Ann, was hideous. She had morning stubble under her armpits. Black as heck, she should have used some face make-up to cover up her nasty black pits. She fell for all the hype and drooling over her MAN LOOKING arms by the gay fashion community...SHE IS NASTY LOOKING!!

I think they must have meant “scarf” not “scoff”. Maybe the writer’s from Boston where the r is silent :)

I know. I couldn't even understand the headline till I read the article. Isn't it "scarf" up?

Or maybe the writer is a poor speller from New York writing "scarf" phonetically.

Speak to someone or about something in a scornfully derisive or mocking way: “department officials scoffed at the allegations”.
Eat (something) quickly and greedily: “she scoffed down several chops”.
Noun:
An expression of scornful derision.
Food.

It’s right in the eating sense from the dictionary. News to me I guess.

Slang
to eat, especially voraciously (often followed by down or up ): to scarf down junk food.

Origin: 1955–60, Americanism ; variant of scoff2 , with r inserted probably through r-dialect speakers' mistaking the underlying vowel as an r-less ar


"Scoff" was preceded by scaff2

1. to eat voraciously.
noun

sure beats Beantown’s, “Wicked pissa”. Have heard that making deliveries so many times and it passes down from generation to generation it seems.

I used to scoff at scarfs, er, scarves; they get caught on the scaff-olding.
