It all started with forums user DeathTramp requesting help with an uninteresting problem that had obvious solutions:

"OK, so I have this Gamecube. It looks like this.


If I sell it, I'll get at most 20 dollars, but I've seriously asked friends to take it from me and no one wants it. So I thought I'd ask SA: What do I do with this gamecube?"

The SA Goons came up with clever suggestions, all of which were ignored. Instead, gross stuff happened, including a goatsplosion, scatological forensics and possibly a blown-off finger. (None of this involved a GameCube.)

What follows is either a series of inspiring displays of devotion to an Internet community, or a dispiriting example of how people disregard creative options to wallow in hapless depravity. Maybe you will think these happenings are actually cool; perhaps you will just enjoy mocking the participants and/or lamenting what humanity has become.


OK, back to the start: DeathTramp's GameCube dilemma. Goons initially reacted with concern (for the GameCube):

"I am going to be sad when you hurt that Gamecube." -- YOURFRIEND

Eventually, Goon-care spread to poor, gameless kids. Achmed Jones was the first to suggest organizations such as Child's Play, Home of the Innocents and Get Well Gamers. A bunch of other Goons supported this quality option, but I'm not going to reproduce their posts in Comedy Goldmine, because "give a thing to charity" isn't funny. Unless ...

"Put it in a PS3 box and then donate it to a kid." -- President Kucinich

"Put the Gamecube on the end of a fishing line and reel it in sporadically as the needy child chases it, a la Looney Tunes." -- Miau

"Turn it into a tampon dispenser, then donate it to a children's hospital. I'm sure there's sick kids that have their first period in the hospital. What better to help them through those tough times than the Tamcube?" -- Quantify!

Chinatown attempted reverse psychology: "Whatever you do, do not under ANY circumstances donate it to the poor."

Volcott reversed it back: "Remember, if you don't donate your gently used video game systems to the poor and Irish, you are basically Hitler."

Then things got a little rough and rude for a spell.
