Whats wrong with this picture? You have to look really close. Takes a while to notice it.
(Been doing the rounds this one, may of appeared elsewhere, my apologies if it has)

Oh, we haven't seen THIS gimmick before... When the page tried to load a .swf file (set to prompt on activex loading) just to display a supposedly still frame jpg, I knew immediately where it was going- although I wasn't viewing the window at that point, so I only heard the scream.

Maybe it's just Linux/Konqueror. I'm not getting it in which case.

Mintsauce: you couldn't possibly have found it via Search, so here's the original thread.

I mean here, dammit.

I knew I saw it linked (also) on MeFi...
I guess explicitely worded FPP tend to be more useful when you use Search =)

Delete away Matt.

The tacky furniture and the plants growing away from the window.

Don't you wish Matt was cloned and his clone moved somewhere closer to GMT?

Saw it on the Pile. What the hell is wrong with it, or do I just lack patience?

That's worse than the infrared camera thing, where it claims that it's an infrared camera, and it can take a picture through your monitor, and at the end, when your picture is "developed," it's a picture of a monkey.

Why is this thing so popular? I don't understand its appeal at all.
posted by aaron at 4:47 AM on March 14, 2002

That thing scared the HELL out of me. Okay, so I was looking at it at 3 in the morning, but still. I'm glad I didn't show it to my grandmother........she'd be dead on the floor from the shock.

Holy mother of fuck. New one for me, and it worked. I won't need any coffee today, thank you.

geez. i didn't even post this crap to blort.
posted by quonsar at 5:42 AM on March 14, 2002

And you'll post ANY OLD THING to blort! Trust me. I look daily.

Oh, I saw it now. Is this supposed to be better than that stupid ghost in that dank room from like last month?

Pass the espresso.

I've seen it before, and I put the thing in the background when I couldn't see anything. I figured the screaming homer sound came from another program I had loaded, so I never made the connection. Scared the crap out of me this time though.

I hate these things.

Ah, you guys hate everything. It worked perfectly on me -- I admit it, I jumped.
posted by mrhappy at 8:13 AM on March 14, 2002

Not as good as the basement pic where the ghost appears in the background. No annoying sound, and much more effective, IMHO.

Although that Flash animation with the Chinese writing and the screaming was pretty funny too.

I hope this gets posted every day so I can puke cool beans all over my monitor while enjoying a deliscious pancake.
posted by Outlawyr at 9:22 AM on March 14, 2002

deliscious n.
1) legumous
2) vine-dwelling
3) mefian delicacy, pancakes marinated in cool beans.
