Exclamation DEATH TO THE WORD "FARKLE"!!!!!!

Who is with me?

My only guess as to how or why the word was invented in the first place is that the moron couldn't spell "accessory".

One at a time, we can stop using this ridiculously vulgar word and make a difference for all of mankind!

Joe - I too resisted the use of the word - but may I add my $.01 worth and offer a different origin of the word:

It does come in handy when installing accessories and things don't quite work out right - you bust a knuckle on that bolt, you strip a screw, the cable is just that much too short, you blow a fuse, oil pours all over the garage floor ... and the word FARKLE! comes blaring out of your mouth instead of the steady stream of other vulgarities I'd rather not have my son learn (well, from me anyway - that's a job for his uncles )...

What's wrong with the word "Farkle"? I think it's great. A silly word for the silly things we put on the LT. What could be better? A perfect match.

I guess that's where we differ in our schools of thought. I install accessories...not useless "farkles".
And my accessories are useful and functional . . . NOT "silly".

Thank you for clearing that up for me... I didn't know that I was that for off course. By the way... I understand that you put your finger in the cigarette lighter on your car and didn't feel anything. Where's my check?

Who cares anyway? - but I have to admire Joe on being able to get people fired up. Way to go Buddy.

couple of links about Farkle..

http://www.gatlinburg.com/fanniefarkles/
at Fannies, you can get a foot long corndog known as an "Ogle dog",

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farkel

yup, I know the spelling is slightly different,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farkle

and this last one lists farkle as a slag word for motorcycle accessory, or is that "ass"essory....

And there's also:

farkleberry |?frk?l?ber?| noun

a shrub or small tree with thick leathery leaves and inedible black berries, native to the southeastern U.S. Vaccinium arboreum, family Ericaceae.

ORIGIN mid 18th cent.: probably an alteration of whortleberry.



As well as:

The Game of Farkle
which requireth six goode dise.

The firste to pley, shall be choosen by the greatest throw of a die, and thys having beene desided shall passe from eache Player to the sinister in turn.

At eache turn, a Pleyer doth throw the six dise. At eache throw a die which doth leane with no side facing up must be throwen oer. He then shall keepe some, or all, of eny Points throwen, setting aside eache die thus counted. He shall then chewes whether to stop, or to continue.

To continue, all dise remaining without Points be throwen. At every throw, some Points must be made, else the turn doth end with all Points of that turn forfeit, thys being the dred Farkle.

Thus must eache Pleyer choose wiseley when to stop throwing, lest he farkle away all of his Points. Exception is made that a Player with noe Points cannot stop throwing until he reacheth at leaste 1 .000 Points or doth farkle, and a Player with Points cannot stop throwing in a turn until he reacheth at leaste 350 Points.

The Points be thus:

one spotte 100

five spotts 50

three of one spotte 1000

three of two spotts 200

three of three spotts 300

three of four spotts 400

three of five spotts 500

three of six spotts 600

Four of the same, doth double three. Five of the same, doth double four. Six of the same, doth double five.

Three Paires in a throw 500

One of eache face 1500

The Points of eache throw, do You count seperatlie.

To continue, when only one die remaineth without Points, a Pleyer doth have three throws by which to make Points, that is a one spotte or a five.

To continue, when all six dise have Points, all six be throwen.

The firste Pleyer to end his turn having scored Him 10.000 points or more doth signal the final Round. Eache Pleyer in turn doth then have one laste turn to passe the greatest Score. When the laste Pleyer in the laste Round doth end His turn, He with the greatest Score doth win.

Wager not upon thys Game of Farkle, for suche is dicing and as suche is againste the Law of our goode Queene Elizabeth.

Lol! BTW, we've been to that castle, way out on the west coast of Scotland. You have to ask the local farmer if you can borrow his boat to get across the small channel.

Actually I know where the word Farkle and Motorcycles intersected.

It was the mid 1990's and the ST1100 list was discussing the substantial number of accessories and a long time list poster was talking about the bikes being covered by fairy sparkles (accessories). The term was coined as a contraction of the two words into FARKLE. They attempted to protect the word saying it only applied to ST1100's and showed why the ride souless sewing machines. It was cross posted and utilized among some the ST1100 group and the Village Idiots (another email list). From Village Idiots (a break off of LDRider) the term was carried out to the IBMWR list and used there by several other riders (especially a few of the rolling Brocolli riders). I've been told that Wing World (GWRRA) and Rider Magazine banned the use of the word editing letters and such that contained it until recently as it my be construed as a curse word. The Concours Owners Group resisted using the term for a long time until the power of the word overcame them.

Cool The Word

We are a community of the "written" word mostly. Thus the word is like a shortcut for you fingers as to me it means several things beyond the word accessory . . .

I have always read the word but I have never "spoken" the word in normal conversation - just feels out of place. So I will attempt to support Joe's Movement by not even using the word.

I know this is probably dating myself, but I figure most on this board are in my age category anyways. Can't believe none of you remember the television show - sometime in the late 60's or early 70's called "THE FARKLES!" Comedy about a very freckled family. Not sure but it might have been a spin off of Laugh-In.

Yeah, what he said!!

I will admit that this is the first sign of cabin fever I've seen this year, which is pretty late in the season. Usually the silly "change the world" threads on various pointless topics start in December. Must have been a warm winter.

I've been told that Wing World (GWRRA) and Rider Magazine banned the use of the word editing letters and such that contained it until recently as it my be construed as a curse word.
If the GWRRA has banned it I would say THAT is the single biggest reason to use the word...repeatedly and regularly!

Love the farkle..
Worship the farkle...
BELIEVE in the FARKLE!!!

Not sure but it might have been a spin off of Laugh-In.
Close! Fred and Fanny Farkle, and the whole Farkle family, were a regular segment of the old Laugh-In show itself. Dan Rowen played Fred Farkle, I believe.

At least, that's what my Dad told me (as far as you know!).
