I blame that horrible, horrible background on the April 1 threads. It almost killed me.

I've been smoking Metafilter for almost six years now, and I feel fine.

I clicked all of the links in the sidebar of that site. Chicago is a very, very pessimistic city.

The first time I visited, it had a close account picture in the corner. Fooled me into thinking it was a custom-made joke, anyway.

Ha! When I first clicked on, it had a photo of an obese man alone in a room someplace. But when I reloaded the page it used this photo instead, which was far more appropriate in my opinion. Butts lol indeed.

I didn't realize that it also searches flickr for a picture appropriate to the wildcard, so I was momentarily stunned when I actually got puppies on the littlest brussels sprout's link.

This realization has made more specific stories even more amusing!

Yeah, I definitely got matt the first time, though when the picture changed to jessamyn when I refreshed, I started to wonder. That picture grabber is good!
