One of the reasons why Half-Life 2 is one of the most endearing games of all time is that it is goddamn Half-Life 2, another one is all the glorious fan content it gave birth to. No game deserves more thanks for bringing Half-Life 2 to the memestream than Garry's Mod,  an awesome open sandbox that allows players to use all models from Valve properties and create their own Source engine games. Trolls seem to have argued that Garry's Mod is too good, in fact, and so they've decided to fill it up with booby traps that are sure to traumatize anyone playing the game. Yeah, remember Goatse? We're sorry for reminding those who do, and we're even more sorry for the readers who don't know of it and are inevitably going to open google to search for something that will change their lives forever (for the worse). Goatse is a relatively ancient meme of great evil from a time when the Internet was an absolute free for all. It's a picture of a mysterious man using both of his hands to spread his butthole in a way mentally sound humans believe to be impossible. It sounds awful, but boy it's even worse than what we're describing. Let's instead look at this cool Minecraft house to clear our minds.

Goatse became so infamous that people started sneakily referencing it in every game that they could, like, for example, the Minecraft image we just showed above. Yes, sorry for that, and for planting on our readers the urge to look for Goatse references everywhere.

Yeah, that's probably one too, isn't it?

Some Garry's Mod players were done with the sneaky referencing mind games and decided to create popups of the original goatse into Garry's Mod. This obviously prompted members of the community to immediately declare a state of emergency and show a bunch of steps to prevent getting goatse-d.

Anyone who ignores the warning risks an encounter with a much less aesthetically pleasing version of this:
