Listen to Yourself
Man, I just wanted to know how babby was formed.
Title text: Man, I just wanted to know how babby was formed.


Here Black Hat asks Megan what she is doing; to which she replies that she is making a computer virus that can infect Youtube users’ computers. Youtube is a website for video sharing where anyone can upload and view videos. The purpose of the virus, as alluded to by the title, is to convert the comments created by Youtube users to audio before they submit the post to the site. The idea is that upon hearing their own ridiculous comments read aloud to them, they will realize the stupidity of it and not submit the comment.

Youtube is notorious for having some of the most ridiculous, hateful, mean-spirited, nonsensical comments of any mainstream website.

The image text is in reference to a post left on the Yahoo! Answers website in 2006 by a submitter known as “kavya,” who asks “how is babby formed / how girl get pragnent.” The post picked up internet popularity and spawned several flash animations.
