"Grandma, what was it like in the grand and wild days days of the Old Internet?"

"It was a truly riveting daydream of dramatized felines, uncensored exclamations of either appreciation or distaste, something us young people called Homestuck, and an uncharted blue ocean known as Tumblr where creativity and fandom happily coexisted and brought forth images both rousing and most questionable."

"Oh grandma, you so cray."
