When backing is lacking

Not every project that seeks funding from the crowd can be expected to materialize as an actual product, and I figure everyone who’s browsed the listings by now will have seen something they can’t imagine anyone actually paying for. This is the motivation behind Flopstarter, billed as “a platform for bad ideas”:

So far we have had hundreds of submissions to the site, all of them useless.

And yet:

All projects will be completed if funded.

So far, no one has offered to back this project:

Natural Death Beef at Flopstarter

This precious foodstuff comes from “cows that have either just died in their sleep or had a little tumble.” Not to be confused with DeaDBeeF, a music player for GNU/Linux systems.

    What if the “little tumble” was due to cow-tipping? Asking for a friend.

    Yeah, I’m thinking this has too much possibility to turn into “Murder Beef and Make It Look Like an Accident.”

    I probably read too many mystery novels.
