Brainwashing Needs Filthy Minds First

If you've never heard of "Goatsie" then you just have to suffer through this service announcement. This is one of the best Goatse dedication pages out there I have ever seen.

Think about the genius with the filth. What's in a meme? The power to survive. What's more, the power to survive in an information war. To be able to come out known ahead of death, poison, debt, work, prison, violence and murder as a concept passed on. We bear witness here to a true conceptual mutant, a dictionarian Frankenstein based on dirty geeks, and nobody even cares.

This one word (based on word play and internet domain, actually) is everywhere and it has changed everything, because it is really based on a picture representing one disgusting concept. Brilliant. What a beautiful creation at just-the-right-time. BEWARE! As a colleague of mine points out, though, "some things you just can't un-see." If you are brave, try YouTube.
