**UPDATE: Y’know, now that I think about it, I probably should have noted that you may not want to click on that link in the first item if you’re at the office, because it may be NSFW. And by “may be,” I mean “probably is.”

No, I’m just kidding, I only want to know so that I can laugh at you for being such an assclown.
