UPDATE: People never believe me when I say that I haven’t read more than the headlines on Gawker since 2005 (well, unless it involved me or someone I knew) so it’s no surprise this was just sent to me. Turns out the Tumblr Community’s very own Michael Orell used to be Richard Nouveau! Dude, just how much product do you use in your hair anyway?
Glad to see my crack investigative journalism finally blew the lid off this sucka.
We probably get 50-100 spam comments in our system daily, usually lists of keywords followed by a spam farm link; these are deleted before they can publish. Typically the keywords are names of celebs, sex acts, popular products, bands, or news hooks. Just deleted one where the lead spam keyphrase was “good country people.” Thought that hilarious until I saw that the phrase “good country people summary” has 40 million results on Google. Sorry Ms. O’Connor, some people really do need somebody there to shoot them every minute of their lives.
It’s like the reverse of a neutron bomb hitting your lifestyle: you and all the other citizens you know are still alive, but all the previously extant structures and institutions are annihilated. Also no radiation sickness, but more cuteness.
