  1. Lock Up Your Bronies, Hasbro May Be Claiming Creative Control Over My Little Pony‘s Adult Fans

    Friendship is magic an infringement on property rights.

    Frankly, I'm surprised it took this long: after four years of growing ubiquity, the good "Brony" name and all its accompanying fan-made creations may now be owned by Hasbro. Everyone put your hooves where I can see them and back away from Deviantart. Slowly.

  2. Samuel L. Jackson Reddit Contest Concludes in Confusion

    Can't we all just get along?

    It all started out so well. Samuel L. Jackson began a contest on Reddit that would end with him saying a 300-word monologue that the users voted to the top. This was all done to draw attention to "one of [his] favorite non-profits, Alzheimer's Association[.]" Cool, right? Wrong. 4chan caught wind of it, and the remainder of the contest became a quick descent into madness.

  3. You Can Make Samuel L. Jackson Say Whatever You Want!

    There's a contest where the winner gets to have Samuel L. Jackson say whatever they want? We truly live in a golden age.

    Getting Samuel L. Jackson to say something you've written would be a huge honor for anyone. That's because every word out of his mouth turns to solid gold. Then that gold sprouts angel wings and flies into your ears. Jackson announced on Reddit yesterday that he would record whichever 300-word monologue gets the most upvotes on his thread. Reddit handled it about as well as you might expect, which is to say not well at all. This is why we can't have nice things.

  4. Sadly Not The Onion: Glorious Leader Kim Jong Un Wins Time’s Person of the Year Poll

    You would think that, by now, traditional businesses would have learned not to offer online polls. The Internet can quickly become a hive of trolls, wreaking havoc in whatever way they can. Yet Time's reader poll for Person of the Year went up, same as always, and didn't even include rudimentary measures to prevent folks from abusing the voting system. Now that the vote has concluded, it's pretty clear that something went awry. Kim Jong Un, the glorious leader of North Korea, won.

  5. 4chan Tries To Dub The Dew, Trolls Mountain Dew

    Restaurant chain Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen innocently tried to crowdsource the name of its new green apple-flavored Mountain Drew concoction, letting people submit and vote for names online. Well, 4chan decided to take them up on their offer to "Dub the Dew," and results were highly educational. I didn't know there were so many ways to describe a carbonated beverage tasting faintly of green apple, and apparently, neither did Mountain Dew.

  6. 4chan Hits /b/illionth Post

    4chan announced on Twitter this morning that it had just passed 1 billion total posts. Yay! It has been a really weird journey so far, 4chan, and we cautiously look forward to what your next billion posts will bring us.

  7. 4chan Helps Burger King Maintain Food Safety Standards

    On Monday, this picture was uploaded anonymously on 4chan, smugly proclaiming "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King". Yeah, well these Burger King employees might be good at balancing themselves on buckets of vegetation, but they're not very good at removing Exif data from their photos. The denizens of 4chan were quick to notice, and the very next day, the lettuce-stepper was fired.

  8. Ludicrous Bill In New York State Senate Endeavors To End All Anonymous Posting On The Internet

    You know SOPA and you know CISPA, so you might think you have a good handle on crazy Internet legislation. You might think you've seen the crazy stuff, but unless you've seen Thomas F. O'Mara's bill S06779, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Currently sitting in the New York State Senate, 6779 proposes that any and all anonymous posts online should be subject to takedown by a webmaster if the anonymous poster refuses to attach their legal name to the post and verify their legal name, IP address, and home address. Luckily, this bill is probably too insane to pass, and definitely too laughably ludicrous to even enforce.

  9. Which Website is Right for You

    The joke in the blogosphere is that the Internet "comes from" only a handful of places. This chart created by webcomic Endless Origami doesn't teach you where to find content, but helps you choose which source for what ultimately ends up being the same pool of content is right for you. Granted, the chart leaves out neat geek culture blogs that sift through all the rabble to cull the top content, and generally also has some pretty killer original content of its own.

  10. Viral Star Rebecca Black on Good Morning America

    It's #Friday, and you know what that means: Viral music video star Rebecca Black, whose 16 million-YouTube-hits-and-counting "Friday" has our staff far more obsessed than any group of twentysomethings should ever healthily be with a tween pop song, appeared on Good Morning America to discuss her unexpected celebrity. She seems like a nice, normal girl! And she doesn't sound like an Auto-Tuned Gorgon when they ask her to sing a few bars of the National Anthem. Still, the GMA interview is all kinds of strange, what with the interviewer reading her nasty Internet comments about her music and the anchors sagely observing that "Friday" is really bad, but "not the worst song ever." Also, 4chan is going to rage about Black's on-air entreaty to Justin Bieber to perform a duet with her. (Hey, she is a 13-year-old girl, after all.) Previously: Black's first interview since "Friday"-mania began.
