  • An Ouija board is a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet and the numbers 0-9, with words such as “Hello” or “Goodbye” inscribed on them. They took Internet fame due to the beliefs surrounding this board.

    On the Internet, after outcry from various religious parties over its use and purpose (most notably from Roman Catholics), these rumors (which include the board being used for divination and as a tool for Satan) quickly spread all over the web.

    A creepypasta, simply named The Ouija Board, was uploaded to the Creepypasta Wiki, while earlier, the online viral origin on YouTube, depicting a clip from Charmed of a character using one, was uploaded.

In one scene, Rolf is busy with his crops, until the boomerang lands in his pants. Shortly afterwards, the boomerang causes a transformation on him that makes him sing opera music.

  • 08/10/17--05:25: It's Party Time
  • About

    It’s Party Time refers to a song rapped by Fritz, a dog character in the 2000 Italian animated film Titanic: The Legend Goes On.[1] He is well known for his rap “Party Time” in the overseas edit of this movie.

    Origin

    The scene from the film in question comes in two different edits: the original and overseas version. Both occur after Fritz saves a family of mice from an orange cat in the titular Titanic. The son, named Maxie, says in both versions "If it hadn’t been for you, I would be in someone else’s digestion.’ In the overseas edit, it is here that Fritz starts rapping “Party Time.” In the original version, there is more of a lead-in, where Fritz speaks to the mice to be careful next time before he raps (which sounds different and is slightly shorter, with less reused animation).

    The overseas edit was uploaded to YouTube on April 9th, 2008, while the original version was uploaded on August 18th, 2009. The overseas edit has over 912,000 views (shown below).



    Spread

    The scene first gained attention in the late 2000s. On August 3rd, 2008, YouTuber GothicusMaximus juxtaposed the scene with footage of James Cameron’s 1997 film Titanic, gaining over 17,000 views (shown below, left). The film was later reviewed by The Nostalgia Critic in 2009. He reviewed the overseas edit, and when he sees the scene with Fritz, he bursts into laughter (shown below, left).



    Since the film became known online, the scene has since been the subject of mockery and parodies, mostly because of the edit’s confusing and abrupt nature. On May 9th, 2009, YouTuber retardskull made a YouTube Poop edit of the scene that gained over 2,700 views (shown below, left). JonTron also reviewed the film, and performed a skit of him dancing through New York City when he got to the scene (shown below, right).
