Monkey Hookers Screw OTB Servers

Our apologies for the site sluggishness and comment weirdness over the past few hours. A July 2008 post on monkey sex improbably made it to the front page of Reddit, generating roughly half a day’s traffic per hour and, thus far, 921 Facebook likes.

As of this writing, we’re still ranked #13 and have generated 1253 thumbs up.

    The Internet is a weird place. You never know what might happen today.

  3. Franklin says:

    It gave me a chance to mark a comment by Bithead as Helpful, so this really is a crazy day.

  4. Clearly you have to work tangents about monkey sex into more political stories.

  5. Ron Beasley says:

    @Stormy Dragon: And I thought it was Stuxnet!

  6. Alex Knapp says:

    @PD Shaw: Amen to that.

  7. al-Ameda says:

    It’s true, Freud was right – everything is about sex.

  8. DRS says:

    Did anyone else get something weird pop up on their screen – something to do with Site Meter? – on the thread a few days ago about Stuxnet? Happened to me at home and at work. Very Weird.

  9. al-Ameda says:

    @DRS: Yes ….. Never seen that before

  10. matt says:

    @DRS: Negative but I have pop ups java scripts and such disabled. I do have the basic ads working though so it wasn’t one of them.

    I actually thought it was my internet connection so I started doing pings.. Then I was confused cause I couldn’t think of a reason why someone would DOS OTB..
