The drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to quickly do a three-frame comic. Soon you'll be stripping all kinds of ideas!

The premise is pretty simple: take a sticker of the "F" word, and put it somewhere that changes an existing sign or message, for humorous effect. Not for those that don't care for the "F" word, but for those of us that throw it around like rice at a wedding, you can "F" This Website.
And, yes, I have the book (thanks DK and Ash!).

It all started on the web comic Penny Arcade, where the Cardboard Tube Samurai was born. Seen here in his first appearance, he wields a cardboard tube like those found at the delicious center of a roll of wrapping paper.
Why is that important? Because it obviously spawned the real-world equivalent that has sprung up, the Cardboard Tube Fighting League. For a better idea, check out the gallery of pictures.

Revenge is as old as humankind, and something we can all relate to. Being wronged can come in many forms, but probably the most common involves relationships. And where there is a relationship, there is sex.
While most people wish they could do something to get back at people fooling around behind their backs, some go the extra mile (too far?) and get even with Revenge Crabs.
