It was not a good day for the webmasters at CBS Sports.

For about an hour this afternoon, there was a link at the “Recommended” section of the site saying “Redskins up wit f**k-ups: RG3 carted off (ankle), Deshizzle Jackson (shoulder.)”

If you clicked that link, you were taken a Gizoogled version of the CBS Sports page. Gizoogle is a program that translates the writing on any webpage into a profanity-laced, mock Ebonics style of proze. For a while, everything on the site – headlines, articles, picture captions, etc. – was written in Gizoogle form.

    Gizoogle reminds me of the pornolizer site and that one was a hoot.

    Oh well. They speak, hear, and know the foul language. I’m sure porn is not new to them, either.

    Fershnickered! BSD Unix has long featured a similar ‘jive’ command translating output.
    Next-up: GOP & RNC websites translated into Teabonics ‘eye r taken my cuntry back to the bable’s teaklanistan family valueless.’

      What is Teabonics?

        The creative spelling or grammar featured on the various signs used by protesters in the Tea Party movement.

          They’re all a bunch of morans.

          An insult or an observation?

          • Carla Akins September 16th, 2014 at 7:26 am

            Both, I believe.
