Finding Goatse, the Man behind the Hole and the subversive Stretching

Anscheinend hab’ ich gleich zwei Storys zum Lieblingsloch des Internets verpasst: Hier schreibt einer über den Einsatz von Goatse als Subversion von Werbung und Medien: Goatse as Industrial Sabotage und Gawker hatte im Frühjahr herausgefunden, wer der Mann mit dem dehnbaren Hinterteil war:

Sometime in the late 20th century a naked man bent over, spread his ass and took a picture. Eventually that picture, known as Goatse, became one of the most venerable memes in internet history. Who is this man, and how did his ass take over the internet?

The story of Goatse begins with a mustachioed, wiry man in his late forties who goes by the name “Kirk Johnson.” Johnson is a prominent practitioner of extreme penetration, which is the extreme penetration community’s term of art for sticking huge objects up your ass. For years, Johnson has been rumored to be the Goatse man, based on their similar frame, skills, and matching moles on both Goatse’s and Johnson’s ass.

Reader, I examined the moles. They match.
