4chan /b/ (often EXTREMELY NOT SAFE FOR WORK or anywhere else for that matters!)
(wikipedia - wikiworld - rules (# ZOMG NONE!!!1*) - urbandictionary)
13000000GET! happened at 06:02:06 in /b/ - Random (generally considered a failget so far)
yesterday it was /a/ - Anime & Manga's turn to have a 1000000GET! in controversy
throwing the whole " milhouse is not a meme IS a meme " debate into the air again
(both the image boards links even tho STICKIED will disappear eventually later)
4chan /b/ shows no signs of stoppage since 10000000GET! happened
only 2 months and 10 days ago (an average of about 43 000 posts a day)
(i just couldn't think of a better way to reintroduce /b/ on metafilter since the other mentions)

Allow me to congratulate you on reaching new levels of gibberish. I don't think I have ever seen a more refined example.

If there were alien beings and they were trying to communicate, somehow I think they'd look something like this. Except probably easier to understand.

August 26, Despite all the internet drama, 4chan /b/ is online and back to running as normal. Floods by those angry with the more vigiliant enforcement of long-standing rules against illegal content have mostly subsided. The only remaining conflicts have led to meme wars and a competitive "Who's better than who?" flood war. However, it slowly calmed and the major populance of both 7chan and 4chan grew tired of it. What was left were threads developed with the hopes of cultivating peace, harmony, and friendship, but ultimately things ended in bitter separation.

For the uninitiated:

4chan: image board, based on a japanese image board called 2chan.

Topics in japanese style image boards are separated by letters. The board in question /b/ is the random board. Most of the other boards have set topics, and rules. There are very few rules in /b/, making it a rather choatic place.

The residents of /b/, collectively know as /b/-tards, have been known to rail against the light rules of /b/, and are agast as such threats to their freedom as the inability to post child porn. Some of these have gone to other more relaxed boards, but come back when these boards are busted or closed down.

(number)GET
Posted as the first reply of a post (2GET) or to mark milestone posts, especially in /b/ (10,000GET, 100,000GET, etc). Originated on 2chan and rapidly adopted by 4chan. When a new posting milestone is near, /b/'s already high rate of posting increases tremendously, as the /b/tards scramble to score a GET. GETs often create new memes, which is the primary reason that they are considered desirable (See below for milestone GETs). GETs of interesting number combinations are acknowledged on other boards depending on how busy the board is and how easy it is to get one, but not the way /b/ does.

posted by loquacious at 12:31 PM on September 17, 2006


In the blogosphere born and raised
On Metafilter was where I spent most of my days
Chilling, slacking, relaxing yet bored
And welcoming my new (fill-in-the-blank) overlords
When a couple of logins who were up to no good
Started image macros in my neighborhood
I got in one little flamewar and Mathowie got scared
And said "Pay five bucks and get of my hair "

I whistled for a broom and when it came near
I questioned its status as vibrating gear
If anything I could say that this broom was rare
But I thought "Now forget it, yo home to MeTa!"

I pulled up to a meetup around seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby, "Yo home, shoutouts for Gator!"
Looked at my kingdom
As I was acting so fly
To settle my throne as the prince of MeFi

posted by Memo at 12:41 PM on September 17, 2006


I'm going to attempt to explain this for those of you who aren't retarded.

Basically, one of the goals here (and in most of 4chan for that matter) is to start a meme, be it a picture or text and/or both, and then reference it elsewhere or build on it further, making it funnier and, if possible, even more obscure.

You see, at some point, it became "cool" to out-obscure-meme everyone else on a message board and then to bring that meme to the fore by posting it over and over again in as many places as possible. It's essentially the internets version of Touretts.

And I'm not sure why, but sometimes it proves mildly amusing.

So, in conclusion, don't worry if you don't understand or think you're too old to understand. It's just a bunch of retards making dumb jokes. Move along, move along, nothing to see here...

Or at least that's what I think. I could be wrong. Fuck it, who wants pie?
