    Fyre Festival descends into disaster

    A gentleman calling himself Ja Rule appears to be taking flak for a failed festival on a Caribbean island.

    People turned up, no suitable venue had been prepared, no acts appeared, food and water were scant, dark descended and the assorted punters had a lousy time.

    Mr Rule is to be congratulated for dicking - I think that's the appropriate street word - his marks, because only the most witless currency-rich gimboids would have bought tickets for an event like this in the first place. If you scoured the earth for more deserving victims it would be impossible to find them. A music festival advertised as Jolly Rogering in the Caribbean would cause even a sex-obsessed haddock to have second thoughts.

    One can only hope Ja and his associates try it on again. Meanwhile I intend offering "Done By Rule" lapel buttons on eBay.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Jar-Jar Rule plus crucifix.

    Ja Rule became a Christian in 2013 when he was promoting the movie I'm in Love with a Church Girl. Ja Rule has spoken about his faith saying, "I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. I don't want people to misconstrue what I'm doing here. I'm taking baby steps, and I want to get closer to God. I feel it's something you should do in life." - Wikipedia.

    And he's selling tickets offering fornication on the beach? As in "Ja Rule gave a toast. 'To living like movie stars, partying like rock stars, and ****ing like porn stars.'"?

    You are so slack, Mr Rule. You wouldn't qualify to be my bitch despite even my notoriously low standards. We'll never collaborate. That's just what it is.

    And "I truly apologize as this is NOT MY FAULT" suddenly gives Twitter a new meaning altogether. Either the "apologize" is wrong or the "as" is wrong. The "truly" reduces the credibility of the twit to zero whichever you remove.

    This guy also promised to have gourmet meals provided
    it was a cold cheese sandwich OMG I laughed.
    I saw this on the news - what a mess
    it looked like a refugee camp.

    Some festival goers have already hired a attorney.

    I laughed

    Fool.

    Would anyone like to place a bet on either of these unlikely outcomes?

    Re: Fyre Festival descends into disaster

    These performers need to be brought to account. If you purchase a ticket in good faith and you dont get what the ticket promises then you should be able to sue for that ticket.

    I remember Madonna came out here and she made the ticket purchacers (lets not call them fans, because thats a cop out and assumes they would put up with anything dished out to them) wait 2 or 3 hours after the official time the concert was supposed to begin. Some people got pissed off and left demanding a refund. And so they should be entitled to do.

    Some of these screwed punters are still queuing for unscheduled emergency planes off the atoll.

    Having been in, and around the Bahamas for years, I was skeptical from the get-go when I heard about this. Those promoters had no idea what they were getting into.
