    BBC Goatse Prank, Again

    There’s a competition to design a logo for The Now Show on Radio 4. I planned to whip up a quick Goatse prank, but someone beat me to it:

    BBC Goatse Prank the now show

    If you don’t know what a Goatse is, it’s basically a rude picture which was the basis of an early internet prank. The prankster would lay linkbait to something enticing (‘New Aphex Twin Album!’), but it would point to an unsightly NSFW picture called a Goatse. I’ll leave it to you to guess what the hands are doing.

    You might remember a similar prank on a BBC Olympic logo competition a few years ago:

    In other news, Gawker recently published an investigation into the man behind (or is that ‘in front’) of the original Goatse image.
