If there's anything that Something Awful supports, it's the right to bear bare arms. However, Something Awful also supports full-fledged counterattacks on spammers, whether it be through ICQ or email. Moist and chewy reader Artfag (hey, I don't make up the names, folks) was recently assaulted by yet another nefarious spammer on ICQ, this one attempting to peddle their idiotic site which charges people to post their restaurant's menus. Gee, and the dot-com industry is dying, you claim? Poo on you!

Like the moral and upstanding citizen Artfag is, a counterassault was immediately implemented. I think this is one of the funniest user-submitted pranks I've ever gotten, and I laughed my white ass off frequently through it. Enjoy!

  • Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
