I wasn't around back then but every time I read this thread I can't help but laugh out load. Maybe because I was never subjected to the pickle in question

It pre-dates me by a few years and it's still funny. However, the actual image is not as shocking as it used to be. I think I'm getting jaded.

I remember that thread. I was up too late for no good reason. Good news, I was on dialup and if it was obvious an image (e.g. goatse) was going to end badly I could interrupt the load.

The pickle showed up in photoshops from time to time years later. I emailed a photoshop contest link to my mother and felt I needed to warn her not to click on anything marked NSFW. Because there was a good chance a pickle lay behind.

Yeah, it was totally a reference to keeping the proles in line, and not at all a reference to people not being stupid enough to do stuff that gets them FIRED in the first place!

If you work for an anal-retentive, soul-crushing, micro-managing company with Emil the dancing clown from hell as your direct supervisor, and for whatever reason NEED to keep your job, you might want to not do things that get you in hot water.

FYI, I'm off because I went back to school after I got laid off. Hell with the 99%, I'm the 99TH freakin percent.

Your post made me look at my profile to see how long it's been for me, and I had the same holy crap experience - August of 2002.  Hard to believe it's been so long.  I remember registering after lurking for a fairly long time because I wanted to comment in a thread about online dating.

For a while his profile said Drew had asked him to make a new account because his username was causing too much disruption. In other words, he wasn't personally banned but his username was unwelcome. I imagine just posting as LuckyCharms was an accidental threadjack.

Some of it is JPEG compression, but it's mostly reflection from the lighting, the result of an on-camera flash. Not that I'd be an expert in such things... not that there's anything wrong with that.

This does make me feel justified in always ordering no pickles when I go out for a burger.
