Developers at ‘The Onion’ wrote a script that makes images load like it’s 1995

September 13, 2014


The Onion throws shade at all facets of culture on a daily basis, but the humor and snark isnt limited to its editorial staff. Developers from The Onion have just posted a bit of useful code on Github that slows image loading down to a crawl. Beyond the troll, The Onion is also using ComcastifyJS as a recruiting tool, with a prominent note that the publication is looking to hire more developers.
