A Goon named rcman50166 posted this photo of himself on the SA Forums to prove some point or win a bet or something. Later he decided he didn't like other Goons using this picture to prove their own points and win their own bets, so he invoked the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to get it removed from online image-hosting services. The SA community responded by placing his likeness in increasingly outrageous settings, and rcman50166, perhaps won over by the creativity and skill his peers displayed, started being a decent sport about it. Let's hope he continues to hold off on those DMCA takedowns, because the last thing April 15 needs is more regulatory bureaucracy!

Here's the starter image again, for people who don't click on intro links anymore, ever since that Heartbleed scare:
