It did start on 4chan. When the word "repost" was filtered out and replaced with "owl" thus spawning the O RLY pictures
January 18th, 2006

Actually, it did come from 4chan. 4chan and YTMND are somewhat similar. Both big, both really random, and both have memes. 4chan is just pictures though.

Yes, LSU (the university all of Nagin's chocolate city residents flocked to after Katrina) has at least three different newspapers circulating around it's campus. This being one of the sh*ttier ones.

"Is the song Popcorn made by Kraftwerk? No. (although some people like to say it is...) It is written and composed by Gershon Kingsley, the first release was in 1969, later recorded under the band name Hot Butter in 1972 by a group of musicians."

"Popcorn" song was written by Gershon Kingsley and three years later covered by Hot Butter band. This version (if came from P2P) is not covered by Kraftwerk but by M & H band.

Aside from the unfunny part (which is spot-on,) if you're going to work on the "found art" angle, you have to be more creative with it tahn just pasting it and using a f*cking fad song. MAKE IT ORIGINAL.
