Some noob with awesome sewing skills posted a picture of this sweet, plush Companion Cube [from the X-Box 360 game Portal] to the papercraft/origami section of rambunctious anime fansite 4chan, where Kotaku picked it up.
The result: a foul-mouthed flamewar on 4chan about Kotaku poseurs harshing their Portal plushie buzz. And while I debated the wisdom of linking a dadblog to a pack of immature anime snobs at all, I remembered that the origami peacock and Neanderthal mask I made during a post-5th grade summer trip to my grandparents' won 2nd prize in the Utah County Fair. That day, I was crowned OG Origami Gangsta, which lets me link to any damn origami forum I want, any time, for life. I also got ten dollars.
