What got slapped 12 months ago - October 2012

by +Tina Cruris

Here we are, the first Sunday of October, and I have to write another reslap post. "What's a reslap post?" It's a chance for us to show you what we were doing this time last year. Think of it as a showcase, or a window to the past when this was actually a funny website.

For the uninitiated, just read on and follow the links in the post headers to see what was happening in October 2012. For those with a little more experience, just go crazy bouncing around the archive. Either way, please leave a comment below or use the "Slap Back" option at the bottom of the sidebar. Take your time and explore our history you may find a hidden gem.

October 2013 Reslap Montage 
12 months ago we announced the launch of a new craft beer with an image of Adolf Hitler on the label. It was no surprise that the beer never actually took off, but anybody who has one of these bottles has a really collectible item which may be worth something in a few years.

The Presidential election was hot news just 1 year ago and the impact of social media on this and forthcoming elections was being discussed, particularly online voting options.

October 11th 2012 - World of Warcraft Hacked - Thousands Killed
The MMO game, WOW was pwned by a couple of hackers who rampaged the online universe, killing thousands of players in the process. The sound of muffled, anguished screams coming up from thousands of basements did not go entirely unheard.

October 12th 2012 - 3rd Presidential debate follows Miss USA format

Body builders are known for their buff bodies which are usually enhanced by the use of artificial tanning products and copious amounts of baby oil. Take a look at this body builder who seemingly forgot to tan a certain part of his body. Either that or it is one of the worst Photoshop head-swaps ever made.

This makes as much sense as Benjamin Netanyahu endorsing bacon.

I can only imagine that Hitler Beer tastes like Nazi piss...which probably tastes like sauerkraut and bratwurst.
