You see, Darryl has been has been having a ball with Tumblr's copyright system, filing at least nine claims on behalf of the alien sending messages to him from the future (Darryl and Bashar have a frighteningly popular YouTube channel). Amazingly, the Tumblr staff are looking at these requests and deciding "yeah, this future alien claim looks legit," because the "offending" material is being taken down. Each artist who was affected received an e-mail from staff, as well as a "strike" against them for their impact on the Essassanian economy. Tumblr's system is "three strikes and you're out," so as you can imagine, getting a strike for offending a possible Doctor Who race isn't going to go well.
His next step will be to claim the concept of GIFs, causing the site to implode on itself Poltergeist-style.
Is Bashar, in his infinite wisdom, trying to make a point about the ridiculousness of Tumblr's copyright system? We certainly hope it's that, and not a ploy to drive people to his online store, which we've unfortunately forgotten to link to here (and accidentally censored in the image above). Of course, the copyright system makes more sense when you realize it's run by the Yippercoolians, the close allies of the Essassanians. Intergalactic copyright law is taken very seriously.
Grand Theft Auto Hackers Are Bombarding Players With Free Money
Grand Theft Auto V is a video game that can be played on PC, which automatically means that hackers and modders are tearing the shit out of it. You can imagine that people would be doing all sorts of fun stuff with this -- flying cars, invisible rocket launchers, and probably bazookas that fire penises or something like that.
A lot of cheaters are trying something new, though: They're making guns that shoot out sacks of money, and ... shooting them at other players. To screw them over.
What happened to the innocent days when all you shot was hookers?
It turns out that the fun comes in two phases. First off: Shooting money all over the place causes people to lose their fucking minds. (Try this experiment out in any shopping mall, and let us know the results.) Second: Rockstar, the developers of GTA, have a system in place that automatically bans people who make too much money in too short a span of time. This leads to situations in which cheaters are firing cash guns at other players, who are desperately trying to flee the shower of money while it literally shoots out of their asses. It's the exact opposite of a mugging, and far more hilarious.
If real life also banned people who make money too fast, the world would be a better place.
You can still play GTA Online if you find yourself in Too Much Money Jail, but you're sadly banished to an alternate server that's populated with cheaters or people who have been dubbed "Bad Sports." So how do you get out of this scenario? According to the above link, the solution is to find ANOTHER hacker and pay them real-life money to get you unbanned. And that is how Grand Theft Auto hackers created the most bizarre and confusing economy in the history of the world.
