I see nothing unusual at all. All I can say is that it teaches people that hotlinking is bad.

Something Awful did something similar to Cracked a little while ago. Why they haven't bothered to fix it is beyond me... Except that it actually makes the page funny.

You would have thought a website the size of Cracked would have stored the images for their articles on-site?

No, someone stole an article from Cracked and hotlinked to the article images... So DOB photoshopped dongs into every photo. Needless to say they gave cracked credit after that.

There was a mention of the myspace fiasco in a Cracked article as well

Yes, which makes it even more ironic they've not bothered to fix the hotlinked image on the page I linked.

Indeed. I've always had a strange urge to punish DOB. It's the eyebrows. Clearly they need a bit of discipline ^^

I'm with Professor Oak here. When you've been around on the 'net as long as I have... Not only this doesn't get more than a weak "meh" from me, but I am also very inclined to add "I told you so like 10 years ago"... :P
