/b/, F.A.T. style

For the last day of the Occupy the Internet Exhibition, we decided to go out with a bang, and occupy 4chan‘s Notorious B.I.B.—/b/ Image Board. As Evan put it: “exhibiting on 4chan is more exciting than exhibiting at the MoMA.”

The reaction thus far has been positive, ranging from:

“Good old social conditioning, by forcing users too associate the irrational emotion of ‘annoyance’ with a the abstract concepts of the movement, your m00t is nothing but a capitalist candy-ass using tactics devised by Edward Bernays… sorry to say guys… this is worse than FOX”

…to:

“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET IT OFF GET IT OFF!”

Oh well—we’ll make Fatties out of them eventually.

Thanks Jamie Dubs for the wicked CSS.
