≡{Θ}≡ (NSFW) Is Kirk Johnson really goatse man? Wikipedia has deleted the name more than once, but there is the mole.

So, people study this issue? In depth and up close?

Ah, internet detectives. Is there nothing you cannot ferret out?

I'm too scared to click on anything of the links, I just wanted to point out that the post is eponysterical.

I thought everyone knew his name was Kirk Johnson. wtf?

so i'm right not to click on any of these links then? can i get an amen?

First two links have bad pictures. Last three links just have text.

There is no anus on any of the links. Penis yes. Of course, if you click through a bit all bets are off.

So he wasn't French?

I thought he was Italian? Someone said that recently. Somewhere on the Blue, I think.

I read an apparent interview with the guy, regarding the picture. I'd be surprised if someone else claimed it was them with a widely stretched ass.

I don't WANT to be exposed to Kirk Johnson.

Man, I can't believe someone would pay 5 bucks to have an eponysterical post about Goatse.

Eekacat, I can't tell if your joking, but ahfU has been around for a while. I doubt he has been sitting on these links since November when he first signed up.

Not that it makes his post any less eponysterical.

I was JUST talking about the goatse guy with a friend online. He was previously unaware to the entire thing, so I had to explain it to him and show him some of the examples that resulted from the meme.

I don't want the secret to be revealed, unless it's some person NOBODY has heard of, and he lives in a small town nobody has heard of, etc.

I just had to explain goatse to my MIL. Thanks.

A guy shows his friend goatse and snaps a pic of his reaction. (SFW)

Wow I could have gone much longer without knowing what 'goatse' is. However "eponysterical" is good to know.

this made me laugh...

still stretching, after all these years...

No. Not hairy enough.

Wait, did I just type that? I used vital mental processes to analyze the identity of the Goatse man. Holy fuck I'm far too bored.

I never saw the image in question and I have this feeling deep inside my heart that I am truly blessed.

Of all the mysteries in the universe, I care least about this one.
posted by NationalKato at 1:38 PM on January 13, 2007


On the official goatse page there is a link for "the giver."

Tell me, please, that that is photoshopped.
posted by CitrusFreak12 at 1:38 PM on January 13, 2007


Never seen goatse. I think in a way it's analogous to people who haven't seen the original Star Wars. May God protect my innocence!

His photo gallery contains this picture (NSFW!!), which is eerily reminiscent.
posted by Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson at 1:51 PM on January 13, 2007


P.S. After further detective work, it's almost certainly the same person. They even have a mole in the same place. Not that the mystery is terribly important...

Additional links to spice up this thread:

The Icelandic Phallological Museum, Click on the, er, arrow pointing to the right for images. This one leaves me feeling troubled.

But now for something on the scale of goatse, Mister Mark's phallic enormity. Most definitely not safe for work. Mister Mark's lips remind me a bit of Amanda Lepore. And his forum (disturbing and really NSFW).

Goatse seems to be wearing a wedding ring in that infamous photo. Somehow I find that hugely funny.

To say that the infamous Goatse has definitely been identified would be, er, a bit of a stretch.

Yeah, now that you mention it, it shows up as a "T" in the center.

I'm pretty sure its because the my comments page doesn't do certain/any html.
