This game was so successful, even the highlight reel is massive. If you’re really pressed for time, you arrogant prick, just read ahuj9’s contributions.
Josh Fonner has been interviewed several times about coping with becoming a “fat goth” meme — twice. I asked him to write an open letter to Heidi Crowter, the girl whose face is on the “I can count to potato” meme. He also wrote to her mother:
“You talked about how distraught the knowledge of this meme made your daughter, and if I’m being 100% honest here, the person to blame for that is you.”
I did not expect this opinion from Josh!

one question from the Interview with Cole Stryker
THIS MAN IS A STRAIGHT UP G. THATS SOME GANGSTA SHIT RIGHT THERE. 4CHAN SOUNDS JUST LIKE THE HOOD. GOOD LUCK MAN.
How do you expect them to respond to the book?
Well there are these ‘Rules of the Internet’ that 4chan has come up with and the first two are copied directly from Fight Club. ‘The first rule of /b/ is don’t talk about /b/. The second rule of /b/ is don’t talk about /b/.’ So even though I feel I’m very sympathetic to the 4chan community and try to give them a fair shake, just the fact that I’m talking about them and revealing their secrets is probably gonna make them angry. It’s kind of like when your favorite band goes to a major record label. And suddenly everyone is aware and everyone pretends to be a huge fan and everyone knows all their lyrics. You don’t feel so special anymore. I kind of feel like that’s what 4chan has experienced over the last six months or so. They’re on the front page of newspaper every few days.”
Scumbag Steve thinks Cole is a straight up G. U jelly?
