Fetches a random FML from the website and sends it to your friend. If you aren't already familiar with it, check out FML for humorous anecdotes.

Run it using /fml

Very good script

Good script! Do you think it is a way to do the same thing for ? It is such a better site in my opinion..

It's a bit too morbid in my opinion. FML provides a nice API so that it's easy to get a random one, while doing it for some of the FML clones would take more effort.

Hi, I'm the creator of FML. Just run into that nice Xtra :)

I fixed the bug, you can download the new version here:

Hope bearzly will officially update it soon.

back in 2011 maximevalette updated the script repairing the bug but the url link is no longer valid, would you mind creating a new submission it doesn't look like bearzly will update it since the last update reads 2009.
