Based on our last show where Rich and I spent quite a bit of time recounting the exploits and attributes of Chuck Norris, you all should know that I'm fascinated with the odd fixations that overwhelm popular internet culture. Often called memes, these concepts, phrases, or images latch onto our brain and spread in a viral pattern. Like most busy parents, I often get infected with these memes late in their lifecycle.
Take for instance the meme of "Goatse". Not one for the weak of stomach, the Goatse phenomenon has been spreading (pun intended) around the web for some time now. I filed it away in the recesses of my brain and hoped to forget it. But, along came this book cover to rehydrate the dormant meme.
For more information on Goatse (NOT work-safe, I assure you), see the Wikipedia entry. I apologize in advance for passing this on to those lucky souls who have not yet been infected.
