If you're considering farking for yourself, there are a few things you should remember: Fark is one of the more intelligent and wittier communities online, but it's not nearly as ''[[GoodIsNotNice nice]]'' as TVTropes. You'll probably get {{Troll}}ed, and [[InternetBackdraft flame wars]] break out almost hourly. A little research, thick skin, capitalization, and punctuation will go a long way if you plan on jumping in the deep end of the pool.

** Headlines with SarahJessicaParker or Creator/JuliaRoberts will invariably have a [[HollywoodHomely horse pun]] thrown in. [[DontExplainTheJoke See, it's funny because their faces are elongated and their teeth are prominent, not unlike a horse.]]
