Gumbaby

"Get To Know An Internet Commenter: Edy."   There's the first page you were on. And then there's the page you navigated to next. Which is not about the same thing.

On a hidden camera showing a circus worker beating an elephant named Annie:
This Elephant ‘ANNIE’ I HOPE to see with kids petting her, happily eating her hay, it does exist KINDNESS! These men have to be penalized, we hope.

On an article titled, BO EMPLOYEE LOSES LAPTOP CONTAINING 13,000 OIL SPILL CLAIMANTS’ PERSONAL DATA:
dONT YOU WISH WE MAY SEE SOME ‘t.l.c’. BEING GIVEN TO SWEET BIG OL; ‘ANNIE’, PETTED, FED?


McSweeney’s ran an interesting column a few years back where writer Kevin Collier followed particular high-volume commenters around the Internet to see what they said in different places. He caught this gumbaby, in which the poster seems unable to stop thinking about the elephant she saw abused.
