Tribute to the Goatse man

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

The page below pays tribute to the infamous goatse man. If you don't know who this internet legend is, DO NOT go find out. Instead let me see if I can explain without exposing you to the raw goatse.

There was once a webpage at www.goatse.cx (a Czech domain which is an obvious pun on "goatsex") which consisted of nothing but a few gross images. The front page was a large image of a man posing bent over, hands pulling his ass cheeks akimbo. And I mean, like, really really akimbo. Like you could drive a car up in there.

Many an internet user fell victim to a subtle redirect to the goatse site. If you didn't like someone, you could send them the link and tell them it's a really cool website, knowing they'd soon be tearing their eyes out in horror. Ok so maybe it takes a real immature geeky loser to see the humor in Goatse Man, but it was one of the longest running pranks in the book. Sadly, Goatse Man's website was suspended about six months ago, and another internet legend bit the dust.

The following site pays tribute to this. I would suggest not viewing any sections that have real images from Goatse superimposed, but stick to the sections like: "Real life stuff supposed to evocate goatse". Here is the site.
