5 Times The Internet Ruined Your Favorite Characters

5 Times The Internet Ruined Your Favorite Characters

I'll never watch SpongeBob the same way again.

For years, the internet has provided the world with access to limitless knowledge.

Then, one day, people discovered that it could be used for... other things.

Chief among these other things is perverting otherwise family-friendly characters. If you've been on the internet long enough, you would've ran into countless instances of popular characters being made to do things that you would NEVER see them do in their typical mediums. While there are plenty of instances to choose from, these five particular instances take the cake:

5. Rule 34

While this entry doesn't involve a particular character perversion, it's definitely a category that most of them fall under. Rule 34 is a generally accepted rule of the internet that states that internet pornography exists for literally any subject (even inanimate objects). In terms of character perversions, this rule usually takes the form what is generally known as "shipping". To "ship" is to engage in the act of taking two characters from a movie or show, and portraying them as a passionate couple through fan-art or fan-fiction (even if the characters at hand are not actually romantically involved in their medium).

4. Racist Mario

Talk about a game of Mario Kart gone horribly wrong. In this popular YouTube video, we see a Mario Kart race that features some characters from outside the Nintendo brand. To say that Mario doesn't react well to this is an understatement. Mario takes to the track and starts killing all the non-Nintendo racers, while also killing the actual Nintendo racers for being "race traitors". The video does everything it can to make Mario look like an asshole; from telling non-Nintendo racers to go back to their "own consoles" and shouting "Nintendo Power!", to implying that he is domestic abuser. Don't worry, he gets whats coming to him.

3. Pamtri's SpongeBob Videos

SpongeBob SquarePants has been the subjection of many internet perversions. But, the videos made by YouTuber Pamtri based around the sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea stand out. Most of these videos are re-tellings of popular SpongeBob episodes, only with cheaply made CG animation, robotic voices, and a lot more creepy. All of these videos are disturbing, but the recreation of the Krusty Krab Pizza episode is by far the most disturbing.

2. Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series

In 2007, YouTuber LittleKuriboh started a web series that portrayed the hit anime Yu-Gi-Oh! in a more comedic light, through the use of editing scenes from the show and dubbing over the dialogue. The series pokes fun at elements of show that fans start to notice as they grow older, such as Joey's exaggerated Brooklyn accent, Kaiba's... fascination with dragons (particularly white ones with blue eyes), and the fact that no one in the show actually knows how to play the card game. The series is also responsible for some of the most memorable lines to be associated with the franchise, such as:

"Screw the rules, I have money!"


and my personal favorite, "DURO! MONSTA CARDO!".

1. Shrek is Love, Shrek is Life

First of all, I am NOT providing a link to this video. Second, if you have not seen this masterpiece of character perversion, beware if you do eventually watch it. I guarantee that you will have one of two reactions. You will either laugh at the WTF-ness you're witnessing, or you will cry knowing you have seen something you wished you hadn't. Regardless, the shock and/or pain you'll suffer from this video will never be ogre.

Yes, I said that.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

The 7 Best Food Places Near UCLA You Need to Try ASAP

We have great dining food AND restaurants around us? Wow, we are #blessed.


Westwood is the home to UCLA and offers plenty of interesting and diverse dining options for students and locals alike. Since the area is firmly Bruin territory, you will find lots of on-the-go, affordable eats along with a mix of more modern and upscale restaurants.

Though I definitely haven't had all the food Westwood occurs, being here two years now (omg already!?), I think I can safely recommend certain places to eat.

1. Shamshiri Grill


South Westwood Boulevard is often referred to as Little Tehran, so most of that area is just Persian restaurants. Shamshiri Grill just makes the best meat and whenever I go there, I always order my meal with their special hot sauce, that is to DIE for. A must try.

2. Gushi

I can not tell you how many times I've been to this place. Located near Fat Sal's, you may be tempted to just miss it but let me tell you that is a mistake. I always get their Gushi Bowl which is just heavenly and the right amount to make me feel satisfied without being too filling. Be generous with the Teriyaki and Sriracha sauces on your meat and you are guaranteed to have a good time.

3. Pinches Tacos


I know Mexican food is very common wherever you go but Pinches Tacos is aesthetically pleasing and their food? Even more so. It just tastes so good! I definitely recommend the Asada fries and any tacos.

4. Saffron and Rose

Saffron and Rose is a Persian ice cream parlor like 10 minutes away from Shamshiri Grill and the quality and variety of ice cream is truly impressive. I would not have known my weakness for Jasmine ice cream if I hadn't tried this place and as always, the Saffron and Rose (it's namesake) deserves to be the name of the restaurant because of how rich in flavor it is.

5. Maharaja


I am very particular about my Indian food but the buffets in the afternoons at Maharaja definitely passes my checklist. I actually went there for my birthday so that just tells you how the food doesn't disappoint.

6. Nekter Juice Bar

I found out about this place very recently and I'm so glad I did because their bowls are so good. They also serve smoothies which I haven't had the pleasure to taste yet but I expect the same kind of quality. I am very partial to the Bruin Bowl and the Dragonfruit Bowl.

7. BJs


They have $3 Pizookies on Tuesday.

I am always there on Tuesday.

Are these two facts connected? Maybe.

What can I say? I just love the restaurants here.
