Toonopedia™ is Farked
on June 4, 2002. The guys at Fark.com, which roams the Internet in search of stuff that might divert their many readers for a moment or two, called this site "spiffy" and said it "Show[s] today's young punks what cartoons are really like." Suddenly, for a day and a half, the monthly bandwidth allowance was grossly exceeded and the mailbox was filled with impolite, juvenile criticisms about not having the correspondent's favorite obscure 1990s TV cartoon. But hey, it's an honor, right?
