DISCLAIMER: Don't click if you're offended by a half second use of the s-word or a koala and a goat making love.

There, I can't get in trouble for it -_-

"Jesus jet-skiing Christ.

Yesterday I blacked out my website and posted an animated GIF that explains what SOPA is and why it's bad. I've found the best way to get anyone to listen to me is to keep my messages insanely concise and saturate them with poop jokes and farm animals. My expectation was that I'd get some laughs from my readers and maybe get featured on a few oddball humor sites.

Instead, the animated GIF received coverage from CNN, Sports Illustrated, Mashable, Business Insider, MSNBC, and a bumload of other mainstream news sources. It was also trending worldwide on Twitter and according to Tweetmeme it was one of the most tweeted links on earth yesterday.

Why am I telling you this? Because I'm fairly certain getting koala lovemaking on CNN is the highlight of my career and I wanted to share the moment with you.

Why else am I telling you this? Because of the combined efforts of some of the internet's biggest players as well as countless awesome underdogs, you could tentatively say that the protests were a success. 18 senators backed off from the bill, 4.5 million people signed a petition, and anyone who used the internet yesterday for more than five seconds is now well aware of what SOPA is and how to stop it.

And as a comic artist, yesterday was one of the most exciting days of my career. I got to put Oprah on a jet ski and make a small difference in the world. I'm so excited about all this I might just go shampoo my toe hair.

Thank you internet. Thank you for all the tweets, reblogs, and shares.

Yesterday, you gave me a raging brainboner so large and so mighty that it could be seen from space.

-The Oatmeal"

Now that I've deflowered this conversation, back on topic.

So about the thing Apollo posted earlier, with Obama pledging to veto SOPA, he also pledged that about another bill and didn't.

Yep. NDAA. The indefinite detention of American citizens. Otherwise known as the government symbolically ripping up the constitution.

DDoS'ing is basically when you ping a certain site for information about the site. When thousands of people do it to the same site at the same time, the site's servers overload because it can't keep up, thus shutting down the site. Temporarily or indefinately.
