Yahoo Answers — super bad and sorely missed
We bid farewell to a piece of internet history, and (lovingly) rip off the McElroys in the bargain.
Here are some of the things we mentioned:
- More information about the Yahoo Answers shutdown
- Pregnancy questions video (NSFW)
- ICYMI episode on end of Yahoo Answers
- There’s a subreddit for every question you could possibly have
- Sarah Z video about where fake stories fit into internet culture
- Dear Abby/Ann Landers
- Ken M
- Amelia Bedelia
- One of many Yahoo Answers listicles
- Example of automated YouTube video reading r/askreddit
- The episode of My Brother, My Brother and Me which bids YA farewell
- A collection of final Yahoos
- Callback to Flash games episode
- Callback to walled gardens episode
- The Soul of a Library - Jacob Geller
- Jason Scott and Archive Team
