epic lulz.

The internet is a place of assholiness. The sooner one realizes this, the happier one’s online stay will be.

Perhaps the funniest story of internet jerkiness I’ve heard in a long time came this week from This American Life on Public Radio International. (Unfortunately not on Sirius, but available as a free podcast), wherein three forum dwellers tell of their greatest achievement: sending the perpetrator of a Nigerian Bank Account scam on a 1,400 mile wild goose chase to the edge of Darfur with the hope of scamming a church out of cash. The story also includes a silly outfit and a sign that calls Mohammed a child molester.

It’s so wrong. And at the same time, absolutely fucking hilarious. Listen for free here. (The story starts at just over 5 minutes in.)
