No idea, but I think it's funny because of his eyes. I'm fairly certain that the joke is that he looks like he is about to do something bad (murder, rape, etc.), but the captions below always make him innocent somehow. It's similar to the Bear Grylls "Better drink my own piss" meme.
Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
