Last night, [info]lillypond (a/k/a my sister) and I had dinner with Team E—. Nice Lebanese food at Hoda's. The service was indifferent but the atmosphere was pleasant and we enjoyed the mix of appetizers we shared as our group dinner.

In the course of the meal, we got on to some weird riff about them milking tiny little goats in the kitchen. The distaff member of Team E— said something about nano-goats. I made an obvious pun using the name of a certain deeply infamous Internet site. This earned me a swift punch in the arm from the other member of Team E—, who happened to be sitting next to me.

[info]lillypond and Ms. E. stared at the two of us boys, neither of them catching the reference. We hemmed and hawed, and I finally said, "Well, it's one of those things that if you know it, you can't ever unsee the horror, and if you don't know it, thank God for that." Then I referenced a certain deeply infamous Internet short film concerning two young ladies and their drinking cup, of much the same ilk.

Whereupon Mr. E. punched me three more times in rapid succession.

(And if you don't know what I'm talking about, get down on your knees and thank whatever God you do or don't believe in that your brain is as yet uncontaminated.)

Ah, friends, I can haz them. Also, my arm hurts.

I do know and I was smart enough to figure out I do not ever want to see it! PS there is a "reaction" vid on youtube with Ralph The DOg that is fabulous!

And yet, somehow I suspect you deserved all the ill treatment you received.

Two goats, one tub.

(See, Jay, things can *always* be made worse. I shall now proffer my arm for any who wish to inflict a justifiable amount of abuse on me for conflating those three things.)

The difficulty is always in actually convincing them that they really, truly, do NOT want to see it, without just arousing their curiosity enough that it's the first thing they look up when they get back to their computers. Ah, humans...

I stumbled across it years ago totally by accident. There was no reason I could divine for my computer to have taken me to that site. All the eye-scrubbing in the world has still failed to undo the damage. *sigh*

I have a coworker who is in his early 20's, and another who is a recent immigrant to the US, and, since I've been up to my eyebrows online for twenty years now, I have a large stockpile of tactical awful with which to keep them terrified and in line.

"Large Stockpile of Tactical Awful" will be the name of my next rock band.

I had to explain goatse to the boyfriend recently. It resulted in some hemming and hawing - not out of embarrassment, but because I was struggling to find the words to adequately describe it. And then I tried to explain the whole culture of shock sites, and was stymied because some of those have so scarred me that I don't want to recall them.

Then we got into a discussion about how it all related to Rickrolling. Good times.
