Wait, what?

Looks like you came here from Geekosystem. Don't worry, everything is still here. We've just combined forces with The Mary Sue to bring you more and better content, all in one place.

Plunge Websites Into Madness With the @horse_ebooks Bookmarklet

What you’re looking at above is what would happen if the legendary Dadaist word salad spewing, questionably legal eBooks marketing Twitter account @horse_ebooks ran Geekosystem. Thankfully, we were able to enjoy the view without having to lose control of our site thanks to the horse_ebookmarklet. The brainchild of Ben Nyberg, the bookmarklet systematically replaces all the text on a given website with @horse_ebooks tweets and likewise changes all of the images to the infamous @horse_ebooks avatar. Wondering how you can enjoy the madness on your own computer? It’s easy. Find out how, after the break. 

Setting up the Horse_ebookmarklet is really easy. The only requirement is that you have your browser configured so that it always shows the bookmark bar. Here’s all you need to do.

  • Navigate to http://heyben.com/horse_ebookmarklet/
  • Drag the bookmarklet in the middle of the screen to your bookmark bar
  • Navigate to your favorite website, say Geekosystem.com
  • Click on the bookmarklet
  • Watch the magic happen

Strangely, the bookmarklet seems to have no discernable effect on Reddit.

Okay, last one, I swear.

(Thanks, Kris!)
