When media outlets describe Something Awful's recent contributions to Internet culture, they tend to focus on Slender Man and Let's Play. The Forum Goons ignored these touchstones when curating the GBS Institute of Art, instead highlighting some lesser-known memes and Photoshop themes. It's that kind of underground ethos, that play-only-the-deep-cuts integrity, that makes the SA Forums such a tightly knit, fiercely independent, wildly unpopular community! These images are entertaining enough as "Modernize a Masterpiece" visual gags even if you don't understand most of the references, speaking as someone who doesn't understand most of the references, but if you're curious, please register on the SA Forums, find out what the in-jokes mean, and then let me know!
"Don't you get it? What we have to understand is it's them or us. It can't be all of us, or one. It's got to be us, or they become it. Then we lose what makes us we."
