The Internet is just overflowing with ingenious bastards that we should just all sing praises to celebrate the day computers became more than just databases. The entire galaxy shifted the moment we tapped into the viral labyrinth nicknamed to most as the “innernuts.” A place where kooks, crazies and the creative mind frames all manage to derive works of art from the part of the brain only Harry Potter can use. We’re a long way from the days when parodies were simply paper cutouts erked-and-jerked by not-so-invisible strings and voiced by the same dork holding the camera.
