Hey, you. The guy who finds something funny that the rest of us saw in 1998 and then forwards it to everyone with insightful commentary like “OMG This is so funny!!!11”. Yeah, you.

    So you posted about a re-post that itself is a re-post from somebody else’s site which consists of re-posts of stuff you say we should have already seen? And all of them got re-posted to Twitter. Twice. This may very well be your most diabolical blog entry yet…

    • Crystal

      I haven’t seen that one in almost a decade, and my husband thought I was nuts when I was looking for it a few months ago and couldn’t find it. Now I can prove to him that I’m not insane :clap:

  2. Maddie Marie

    I hate it when people TALK about those dumb videos that everyone has already seen. They ask you “Hey, have you seen this?” And although you answer “Yes.” They continue to go on ahead and tell you all about it anyways. Love that.

    Beth, you must have been spending time in the innocent part of the internet.

    Moosh, I don’t think they are, no.

    Cheeky, yeah, I know. I was disappointed by that too.

    BE Earl, c’monnnn, do it!

    SciFi Dad, it’s not my list – it’s the guy I credited.

    Whall, that’s because you close your eyes and put your fingers in your ears when you surf the web.

    Hello, I knew that most of these would be new to you.

    Dave, I almost went in and edited your comment so that it was reposted in my comments just to fuck with you.

    Grant, but now you can comment on it!

    Amanda, you can now expand your knowledge of all things Internet.

    Heather, you’ve never seen Goatse before?

    Bridget, that was a funny one. A little long, but worth it.

    Finn, the few that I hadn’t seen were pretty interesting.

    Kaila, hahahaha – that’s a funny one.

    Faiqa, you don’t have a cool factor. Nice try!

    Maddie, yup, I agree.

    Bo, that’s how I felt. Like seeing old friends again.

    Fear and Parenting, one of my favorite things ever.

    Lynda, you should educate yourself!

    Chamblee, I’ll check it out.

    Poppy, we’ll be here.

    Mik, the Battle at Kruger was one I’d never heard of, but it was fascinating!


    Marty, I’d seen a little more than 75% of the list.
