The Internet Drops Trou

Look what the Web coughed up

Remember that time a few years back when a group of Chinese hackers posted a photo of Clinton avec Hitler mustache on the U.S. Department of Energy Web site?

If you're like me, gentle reader, you've been yearning for more tasteless Web site defacements ever since. Sadly, the Chinese hackers haven't answered the call, and rumors that the World Wide Web would turn into a romper room of fourth-grade bathroom humor have turned out to be unfounded.

Now, thanks to Assotron.com, you can have the next best thing. The Web site allows you to type in any Web address and, unless the Web page has fancy formatting, you can view it in glorious ass-o-vision, decorated with strategically placed posteriors. Assotron.com has decorated the Web with 362,308 tushes since May 24. That's enough gluteus maximi to stretch from here to San Antonio. Just imagine the traffic pile-ups.

The Assotron is especially useful for viewing www.whitehouse.gov or your company's Web site. You wouldn't believe how an ass or two spruces up that corporate gray.
