The 50 Worst Things On The Internet In 2012

We spent 2012 scouring the Internet for the worst possible things. This is it. Serious NSFW warning.

Posted on

Here at BuzzFeed HQ, editors Cates Holderness, Ryan Broderick, and I have an ongoing competition to gross each other out by IMing and emailing each other links of terrible, horrible, very bad things we come across on our travels along the Internet.

What quailifes as "worst" isn't necessarily the grossest — there's a certainly a lot of nudity involved, but it's typically in cartoon form. Sometimes it's a link to a messageboard thread or snippet of text. It's like classic definition of obscenity: you know it when you see it (in this case, it's pretty much all obscene material, so...)

We've compiled a list of our favorite worst things to share with you. This is what we're looking at all day, we hope you like it. Sorry to our moms.

NSFW WARNING. Most actual human nudity (but not fluids) is blurred; cartoon/animal is not blurred.

SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY NSFW. YOU CAN NOT UNSEE WHAT YOU WILL SEE BELOW.

14. Tumblr post about a fear of castration related to a Bugs Bunny doll

Love of Buster Bunny, and the fear of castration:

It’s so cool watching Tiny Toon Adventures again. Buster Bunny was one the first cartoon animals that I became utterly obsessed with. Excuse crummy quality.

When I was about 11 years old I’d tape and watch the show. If I saw something that looked good (like Buster in a cute pose or something) then I’d pause the tape and go through it frame by frame.

One day I saw in a shop window, a stuffed Buster Bunny, and I begged my mom to get it for me. She did, and I was so emotional over getting him that I actually cried.

At night I used to put my dick between his legs and just squeeze. I was only 11 at the time, and I didn’t know about sex or masturbation. I had no idea what I was doing. All I knew is that it felt really good, and doing that with him made me form a very close bond with him.

Throughout much of my childhood I lived in fear because of very strict (although well-meaning) parents. I looked so forward to my nights with Buster because he was the only person that I didn’t have to be afraid of. Plus he’s hot! What we did at night was our little secret. I feared that if my parents discovered what I was doing with him that they’d cut off my penis and take Buster away.

That might sound irrational, but when you’re a small, naive child in a very strict home, it’s something that you think could happen.

So I grew extremely close to Buster. I loved him then and I still do now.

8. Erotic fan fiction of James Holmes+BuzzFeed's Ryan Broderick written by a "Holmsie"

The Holmesies were furious at Ryan after he wrote about them on BuzzFeed. Cates and I went into their IRC chatroom posing as sympathetic fellow "holmsies" and encouraged them to write fan fic of James Holmes having sex with Ryan.

They delivered.

5. Lauren Conrad's book murdering craft project

Cates discovered this abomination. Lauren Conrad suggests a craft project where you cut off the spines of real books, glue them onto a plain box, then use that as a decorative box on your shelf. Instead of just, you know, reading the books.

2. The famous Reddit "cumbox"

In a Reddit thread about revealing your deeping secrets, someone admitted to having kept their ejaculate in a shoebox for 2 years. Eventually, in shame, they attempted to set the box on fire, but it wouldn't burn. The post became incredibly popular, with over 6 million views on the images.

1. Update to the cumbox a few months later, after mold has started to grow

The Redditor updated his original notorious post to reveal that his cumbox has "given life".

This is The Worst Thing On The Internet in 2012, period.
