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!

  • Lair Flair!

    Lair Flair!

    Your lair. Maybe you lure victims to it, maybe you hide in it between killings, or maybe you haunt it 24/7 because you’re tragically confined by a curse. Whatever the situation, for most of us monsters, a living/un-living space is an important part of our identities. In this column, Monstergeddon award winners share their lair tips and techniques!

    SkyMall Product Review: Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar

    Works great on my child, who hasn't barked at all for as long as she's worn the apparatus. When she turns three, we will remove it for a trial period.
