iTunes in my Butt

cloud-to-butt is an open-source extension for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari that replaces all instances of "the cloud" with "my butt." Hilarity ensues. (via stellar.io)

Looking for fodder to test this with? Google News is a good place to start...

Is there a mangled-English-to-butt extension as well?

The best part of this is that the guy developing the Firefox extension had a tough time submitting the pull-request to github, because the extension kept mangling its own documentation.

My Butt is the UK's leading public access WiFi provider.

My butt, as a planetary-scale infrastructure, was first made possible by an incremental rise in computing power, server space, and trans-continental fiber-optic connectivity.

Constructed of carbon glass, spanning over four meters, and containing more than 65 kilometers of fiber optics, my butt encourages visitors to touch and interact with information in new ways, manifesting emotions and behavior through sound and a dichotomy of luminescence and darkness.

Since I'm on the IT staff for a company that sells such products, the only option here is for me to install this on all the computers of the salespeople here. Our boss already told them not to write content with this term, but I think this extension will definitely prevent it from happening again.

Wait though...I think they use IE.

Aside: I installed a Greasemonkey script [via MeFi] in Firefox once that replaced Apple orientated words (Jobs, Apple, iPod, iPhone, etc.) with corresponding KFC words (The Col., KFC, Double Down, Chicken Sandwich, etc.).

I use Safari day-to-day so I completely forgot about until one day I had to look at something on the net via Firefox and could not figure out for the life of me what the hell was going on.

True story.

For some reason my brain went visual on this one.

Edit to above. It went down this way, for historical posterity:

I installed said Greasemonkey script on my home Firefox browser which I never use. I had my larffs and promptly forgot about it for a goodly time. When the time came many months later, and for I reason I cannot fathom, I used Firefox instead of Safari to answer a work related Gmail. When I got in the office the next day and checked my email, the apple related content was changed to KFC terms. It took me a good long time to connect all the dots there.

From raisemybutt.org:

My BUTT proposes an entirely new form of observation deck, connecting visitors to both the whole of London and the whole of the world, immersing them in euphoric gusts of weather and digital data. Each individual footstep on the ascent to my BUTT participates in a vast collective energy-harvesting effort.

The Chrome extension "To the Moon!" replaces "cloud" with "moon", as suggested by the aforementioned tweet by Maciej Cegłowski.

I agree that the butt plugin (ahem) is much sillier.
