I was on the phone with my brilliant brother when he said to me do not click on the link in the poster. Link? what link?
The conversation went just like this:
BROTHER: Remember that video I sent you with all the dumb people?
BROTHER: Well this guy made an incredible poster and he edited the video and inserted it so that all those folks would click the link.
ME: What link?
BROTHER: The link in the poster I sent you.
ME: What poster?
BROTHER: Okay, hold on Jess, I’ll send it again.
And he sent me this glorious piece of artwork. [do not type the link]
ME: Why can’t I click the link?
BROTHER: Because it’s old people porn.
ME: That sounds funny, I want to see it.
BROTHER: No you don’t.
ME: Oh my gawd, I totally want to see it
BROTHER: Jess, you don’t understand this guy, this really smart guy created the poster and embedded the link in a site where he posted that video, he baited all those dumb people and sent them to the most disgusting porn site ever.
ME: How gross.
BROTHER: 90 year old people screwing 80 year old people, lots of them. Your readers will hate you if they see it.
ME: Most of my readers already do hate me. I mean some of them like me, but a lot of them are just waiting for me to screw up.
BROTHER: Still… it’s too awful. Don’t look, you really can’t unsee this. It will be in your brain forever, you will be miserable.
I confess. I have not seen the site, but I know at least one of you will, and I’ll get some measure of joy being the bearer of gross news.
Plus the thought of the wackadoodles over there… it’s like manna from heaven.
