I can't tell if I'm experiencing child-like wonder or existential dread.

This whole _ebooks thing is about to cave in on itself from the sheer weight of its detached irony.

My favorite phrase is now STRESS ME OUT AND DESTROY MY HOME.

I can't tell if I'm experiencing child-like wonder or existential dread.

Hey functionequalsform, the horse would like to know: What was happening to you in 1992?

You owe it to yourself to run the bookmarklet here on The Blue. It's like putting on the shades form They Live, only with more meaningless marketspeak.

Bizarrely, when used on this thread it horsifies all the link text but leaves the comments alone.

Cut it out. We've saddled this thread with enough jokes.

Okay, fine, but seriously. I really want the truth, please:

There is no way that the horse_ebooks account is choosing these phrases at random, whether from some collection of ebooks or elsewhere, right? Please, I beg of you, anyone with any insight, fill me in. I need to know who is behind this, and why it's happening. Please. Please. I need to know.



Please.

I'm at work now, so I'm not clicking on anything potentially strange, but is this anything like Cornify?
posted by foonly at 2:47 PM on February 9, 2012


Kind of. SPOILERS: It replaces link text (and maybe some other text?) with something from the horse_ebooks twitter feed (but not the link itself), and all images on the page are replaced with the horse_ebooks twitter image (a majestic-ass looking horse).

This is taking the horse_ebooks obsession way too far. What's next, conventions? Y'all are basically post-ironic bronies.

I don't care what the actual deal with horse_ebooks is; I just know it makes me laugh hysterically several times a week.

grouse: Please explain.

As summed up in another post:
horse_ebooks is a Russian twitterbot spam account that communicates entirely through snippets of ebooks and is more hilarious, confusing and philosophically poetic than any non-spambot on the internet.

Real bronies are not ironic. (For a little while there was a pony_ebooks feed, but it didn't last long.)

My name is BlueHorse, and I do not approve of this link.

However, this link satisfies.
