Polish newspaper Gazeta Olsztynska made a huge snafu when they ran an article on the 2010 Winter Games which included illustrations of the mascots: Quatchi, Sumi, Miga, sidekick Mukmuk and a new addition -- Pedobear.

Pedobear is a long-running Internet meme that originated from the 4chan forums. When a particularly lecherous person seemed to be hitting on underage adolescents users would post the Pedobear image directly afterwards to call them out. The meme has since taken on a life of its own, with photoshopped Pedobears popping up everywhere -- sorry, VANOC.

How many Poles does it take to permanently associate the Olympics with 4chan?

I'm pretty sure 4chan is going to ruin the world one day.  Not soon, but somewhere down the line.
Their list of "accomplishments" thus far is already pretty striking.

Because that's not trolling.

If they want to troll the government, it's as easy as non-descript clothing and ride, and green laser pointers in the white house security cameras. That shit's a terrorist offense.

Now imagine 300 people doing that a day. Jails would crowd within less than a week. Guantanamo Bay would be used as a last resort, pissing off Americans even more at "a little laser pen," which is what most consider them now-a-days.

Facts are irrelevant. What people think is true is all they'll think. Consider this when trolling.

Best olympics ever.  Unless you're a kid, that is.

if you read the list of things they've done, they actually did some good stuff. In one case, some assholes posted videos of themselves torturing a cat. 4chan users took their l33t haxor skillz to the streets, got the dude's IP address, called local authorities in the same day the vid was posted, and the dudes were arrested mad fast.

They've also been know to make the occasional visual novel.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
