‘Cause sometimes you gotta do a little trolling. (Hi, Reddit)

The #3 top rated post on Reddit’s /r/pics at the moment contained a hotlink to an old Red Foreman image of ours. (Specifically this one). The entire thread is a ‘kids today on the internet ain’t go no sense” kind of circlejerk, so I felt compelled to address not only the hotlinking (which is a pet peeve of mine) and the general grumpy grandpa-ness of the thread. So we replaced the image with this:

Now we’re just watching the comment thread on the original Reddit thread get ever more surreal and confusing.

Edit: Now I’m just waiting to see how long it takes for someone in the thread to figure out my Reddit handle.

    I’m proud of you, I clicked this and lol’d because the thumbnail was of that old dude from that 70’s show.

    I immediately came here to see if someone had done a hotlink swap.

    Bravo, sir or ma’am.

      Why thank you! It took a a few runs through Photoshop to find the right person/quote combo that hit the perfect “drive Reddit insane” balance, but we’re happy with it.
