I could share some fun facts about The Oatmeal and its creator that would bring out the nerdrage in all of us...
This is certainly the place for it. That place being the Internet.
Basically it's all a money-making scheme. Its creator is a search optimizer. He actively tries to make his quizzes and postings as bland and unoriginal as possible for the purpose of getting traffic from Google and social networking sites. The jokes therein are often repeats from Cracked.com articles. He advises other creators to create similar content to make a profit.
In other words, Web 2.0 cancer.
Huh. I'd already guessed about 90% of that from the two times I'd visited Oatmeal. Didn't know the dude was a SEO, but it doesn't surprise me. The whole site feels totally fucking cynical, like it's built for people who list their hashtag teams under their Twitter names and have pictures of their kids as their Facebook photo. Something they pass around the office with "LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" as a description.
He even gives speeches on this.

This reminds me of early Newgrounds.

Her voice is great and the song is cute.
You people have broken enjoyment glands.
Can't even appreciate a cartoon that shows a kid being flogged with his own major intestine.
