#SOPAcalypse: Team Tallsome’s Visual Response to SOPA

Today, several major Web sites, including Wikipedia, Wired.com, and Google, are blacking out their content (or at least some of it) as part of a protest against the proposed SOPA bill. For all of you who’ve been living under a rock without internet connectivity for the past few weeks, SOPA (the Stop Online Piracy Act aka the No More Fun On The Internet Act aka a Bunch of Social Networks Getting Kicked in the Nuts Act aka NO MORE MOTHER F*CKING BRO JOURNEY Act) is pushing to crack down on internet piracy and illegal use of copyrighted content, which basically means everything that you like to use on the internet (i.e. YouTube, Facebook, Porn) will all be stripped of anything that isn’t actually there’s. Luckily Big Barr-Barr up in the White Hizouse is opposing the bill, so at least there’s still a glimmer of hope that this stupid thing WON’T Pass.

Take a hit and let's all just chill Ahmadinejad

With that in mind, we here at Team Tallsome decided that we needed to address this pivotal issue that will certainly affect our own abilities to share the wisdom, wit, and wherewithal that we do with you, faithful readers, on a (almost) daily basis. However, rather than give you a list of reasons as to why you should be rioting in the streets/contacting your local representative/planning an attack on the record companies and movie studios that are being such douches about all of this (quick note Warner Bros. & Universal, even if SOPA passes, pirating will continue on and most likely will intensify. By pissing off those responsible, they aren’t going to go away – they’ll simply find new ways to get what they want), we decided to share with you the discussion that Team Tallsome had this morning on the topic.

As many of you might know, we here at The Bro Journey spend anywhere where from one to eight hours a day G-chatting at work and below is word for word how we decided to address the SOPA issue.

Enjoy you filthy animals.

So, uhm, SOPA would totally fuck up TBJ. I don’t think it will go through but if it did… I would be the first guy with a Guy Fawkes mask on parading around throwing rocks at things

Or shutting itself off

But I dont think that happend

Max:

Hey, check out this conversation I just had with a guy I’m doing the “manterest” board with (on Pinterest):

10:35 AM 

Max:

“Max, the women are fighting back on pinterest”

“Austin, what do you mean?”

“There’s women’s shit, it’s EVERYWHERE”

Matt:

I understand that these sites are all going black… but the decision makers don’t know shit about the internet. And they aren’t going to reddit everyday. They won’t be chapped up about biong boing going down since they don’t know what the fuck it is

10:37 AM 

Max:

YEAH

DEATH TO THE INFIDELS

Matt:

Matt:

This is fucking awesome

10:45 AM 

Max:

I imagine us standing on a roof dressed as moroccan assassins (those cool middle eastern scarves that hipsters like wrapped around our heads with aviators on), shouting with bullhorns!

A molotov in one hand, a tom daly in the other!

And then Tom Hardy, dressed as Bane, pops out with a rocket launcher!

Matt:

Turbans

Fuck yeah!

10:46 AM 

We need to just write a post about SOPApoclypse

10:47 AM 

Max:

This is when we should have a comic

This would be an awesome adventure

10:48 AM 

What’s Frank Miller doing these days? Maybe he’s do it pro-bonem

Matt:

I can just imagine a sick ass picture of us

10:49 AM 

Riding elephants with rocket launchers attached to our backs

Shooting at shit

Explosions in the background

#SOPAclypse

10:50 AM 

Max:

I LIKE that

Matt:

You’re wearing a headband with the hashtag #teamtallsome

I’m wearing an upside down Nike headband to represent my anti-corporate sentiment

10:51 AM 

We each have an entire can of dip in our lips

Full beards

And Ron Fucking Swanson is in front of us leading the charge

Completely naked

Except for a headband, loin clothe and a knife

10:52 AM 

Max:

I can’t think of an adequate response to that

HOLYSHITBALLSHOLYSHITBALLSHOLYSHITBALLSHOLYSHITBALLS!!!!!!!!

10:53 AM 

Matt:

I forgot to mention than we’re both wearing cut off jorts

And vests made out of dead gorilla chests

And custom #brojourney Chuck Taylors

10:55 AM

Max:

Sorry, I just had to have an injection of creatine shot into my heart to jump start it after the AWE that just transpired

I’m saving this conversation forever

10:56 AM 

Matt:

I think we just need to blog that for today

Just copy and paste this entire conversation into WordPress and call it a day

Max:

I think we should

I think I will

I’m doing it

You’re so welcome world. #SOPAcalypse
