Gizoogle

Need a laugh? Well, you’re in luck, ‘cause I just discovered the most ridiculous thing ever. And by ridiculous, I mean awesome. (Or maybe just awesomely ridiculous…)

That thing is Gizoogle.

Basically, it’s a parody of Google that translates webpages into gangsta slang. (Seriously.) As you’ve probably guessed by now, I’ve spent way too much time looking up different sites on Gizoogle, all so I can die laughing at the “translations.”

Naturally, I couldn’t resist looking up my webcomic Echo Effect, too. This is how Gizoogle translates the cast page. (Here’s the original page, for anyone who wants to compare.) Call me crazy, but I’m now a little too in love with the idea of Nicholas being called a “ghettofab pretty pimp”…

    1. I agree--there's never such a thing as too much silliness! (We probably don't need more distractions, though, but...oh, well! XD)

  8. This sounds seriously addictive! Me and my bruthaz used to talk like this back in the day, yo. (Our parody probably wasn't as authentic as you can tell!)

  11. Oh My God! That actually gave me a headache. The sad thing is that I see people my age write like this. It's like a completely different language!

    1. LOL, yeah, I don't think I could stand to see people genuinely writing this way, but I still think it's fun to see parodies of it. :P

    2. People even write like this on Facebook!

      It's funnier when they speak like it!

      Someone should rewrite Romeo & Juliet like this!

    3. OMG, I think I might actually enjoy Romeo & Juliet for a change if it were written like this! XD
