I think it's a giant day gecko. They're from Madagascar.
User avatar #15 to #14 - playerdous (10/16/2013) [-]
For whatever reason they're all over Hawaii. They look like sour gummies, texture and color.

Holy **** ?!?!

Is this for real? I know the guy that did this... I wonder if he even knows
User avatar #55 to #54 - limb (10/16/2013) [-]
You knew geckosandcheerios?
User avatar #56 to #55 - necrophyxia ONLINE (10/16/2013) [-]
Yup, I was there when he came up with the idea to do this.

We all had a good chuckle... but I had no idea it made it this far

I'm laughing so hard it's difficult to type right now

Yep everyone on FJ treats the .gifs as sacred and thumb anyone who posts them down. You should let him know he's a FJ legend.
User avatar #58 to #57 - necrophyxia ONLINE (10/16/2013) [-]
He knows.

He knew before anyone else did. Why do you think he had that monologue ready? It was just the final nail in the coffin.

He was a mastermind
User avatar #59 to #58 - limb (10/16/2013) [-]
He changed the world in 4 days. Imagine what he could do in a month.
User avatar #60 to #59 - necrophyxia ONLINE (10/16/2013) [-]
Why bother?

He got what he wanted, immortalization. Don't you understand? If he continued, then he would have changed nothing. He did everything right...perfect.

Not too short, and not too long. And now his legacy stands as testament to his godly restraint.

Some ******* spammer spammed this gif on 1000 contents awhile ago, and everybody seems to loved it,
#36 to #32 - cutfourbieber (10/16/2013) [-]
so now its not alowed to post it?
User avatar #41 to #36 - edemylove **User deleted account** (10/16/2013) [-]
It is allowed, but people would most likely thumb you down, because "he was a funnyjunk's hero" or things like that.

can you get IP banned if you get a million red thumbs as anon?
User avatar #33 to #29 - sagedivinity (10/16/2013) [-]
Why is he being thumbed down?
User avatar #39 to #33 - cocoman (10/16/2013) [-]
pwnmissilereborn's explanation was allright, better one on here though

Sheesh, FJ seemed way more emotional back then.

Thanks anyway, I didn't know the full story as I only started lurking as an anon a while after geckosandcheerios and I simply picked up from stuff I overheard.

Have you not heard the legend of geckosandcheerios?

He was an FJ user who posted this .gif of a gecko eating a cheerio in tons of contents. I am not aware of the reasons for his actions or for the positive reception from FJ, for that you will have to ask someone older than me. But one thing I know, everyone 'round here loved him and he got big amounts of thumbs from it.

Others tried to imitate him but quickly were tagged as thumbwhores and thumbed down to hell.

Instead of abusing his luck, one day geckosandcheerios stopped posting it before everyone got tired and left FJ, or at least that account. As such the community never stopped loving him, and today he is seen as some type of FJ legend. Whenever the geckosandcheerios.gif is posted everyone sees it as thumbwhoring and disrespect towards the user, and as such those posts always get lots of red thumbs.

Time for the reason

It was during a bad time of FJ reposts flooded the front page everyday literally the same **** everyday and admin was flagging and banning gifs like he is now so in response one user decided to take a gif one that meant 1000 things and posted it across 1000 different pieces of content no more and no less admin knew he couldn't flag something so simple so he basically freed us from admin causing a ruckus and started the flow of OC back up

Mmmmk thanks for telling me.
#37 to #35 - pwnmissilereborn **User deleted account** (10/16/2013) [-]
Anyway, it's not very important now and I never really got the thing about it. In my opinion the only thing you need to know is that .gif pisses off a lot of people.

So if you want green thumbs, avoid posting it.
Otherwise if you want a negative reaction from FJ, there is no best way to get it than to post it.
User avatar #40 to #37 - sagedivinity (10/16/2013) [-]
This is still a little odd to me but I don't want to upset anyone so ill stay away from it.

Smart idea, and the reason it is revered is the result of kind of a mass placebo effect.

In the placebo effect, a subject is given a pill and told that this pill has healing qualities. After a regimen of this pill the subject reports that the pill did indeed improve the subject's life. The problem is, the pill was spurious. It didn't actually do **** , the idea that it would help is what actually helped. Why am I explaining to you what you probably already know?

Well I feel it'll clarify this next bit up a bit.
As far as I remember, back right before geckosandcheerios came on the scene FJ was littered with 9gaggers and 4channers that hadn't much anything else better to do than "raid" funnyjunk(that's kind of like dumping **** into a pool of **** ). So there were a lot of random spammers and some included pictures. Well it got to be so regular that even the spammers got bored of the spamming. They were just spamming dumb **** that wasn't even inflammatory. I think that geckosandcheerios was attempting to do just that, on account that geckosandcheerios didn't do much of anything besides post that gif. What was different though, was that FJ had become complacent with the spammers, barely paid them any mind because bitching didn't do anything. Instead, FJ'ers went the opposite way. Everybody started thumbing all of geckosandcheerios gif up, every. ******* .time. I'm pretty sure admin noticed all the gifs and banned geckosandcheerios(if only briefly) and that's when geckosandcheerios moved on, never to be heard from again.

...and THAT kids is how I met your mother.
