It's amazing that this in-joke has been around for a few years now, but only just started exploding into pop culture a month or so ago.

And obviously in context, that's what Yoon Ha *meant* to type. Oh well. I just wish I had had the chance to type it sooner. As soon as I saw '*"I gave up it"' I knew I had to type it, but it was too late. Oh, bother.

I'm not too crazy about this site. I like to see the pictures, but I don't want to have to rate them. And sometimes it shows the same picture more than once, so how is it fair to rate it multiple times? Also, sometimes the picture doesn't come up at all. How do I rate that?
