Miscreants have made an ass out of users of bewildering photo-sharing website Pinterest – by hijacking their accounts to flood the boards with butt pics. The cheeky spammers gained control of the profile pages by tricking victims into clicking on “Pin This” widgets on websites or running dodgy apps, all of which had malicious …
They should examine the butts for
My significant other is obsessed with pinterest at the min. Whats the big deal? Funny cat pictures? There can't be that many to warrant spending so much time trawling through. Same with Twitter! There just can't be that much interesting stuff on there!
Perhaps it was this guy!:
Maybe it's time to sign up on Pinterest...but only if they ensure new pictures daily
I'd complain about the chidish use of derriere synonyms...
But my family would be bummed if I was behind some asinine conviction that I 'can' get to the bottom of el Regs attempt to make Pinterest the butt of a joke.

Not all that funny . . .
Your work output is hopefully better.

Why so serious?
So, one question
Was it Pinterest that was hacked or was it another lesson that folks shouldn't use 'password', '123456', etc. for their password?

Sorry for your misspelled name. You can call me Andrej.
Re: @ Eddy Ito - So, one question
No worries Andrej, most people don't get it right but kudos for knowing the traditional spelling. There's no need for a fail flag or to get butt hurt over someone down voting but have a couple of up votes on me to even out the score.
I'm more of a breast man.

David Attenborough In 1000 years on a cave painting
The missing link between ass and humans found. This creature represents the breakthrough of species for the first time caring more about social life than survival. It is due to the sheer number of clicks (from the newly refined fingers) on trees, stones, even frogs that word spread our mouths can be used for eating, not just talking about the latest cave drama.
Cave pictures depict this creature slumped over a tablet like slab with a crooked spine using its finger to draw a a tree with two coconuts on it. We believe this was how the ass-a-man passed on knowledge to future generations about what foods were safe and dangerous.
This other picture shows a lady begging the man not to mix his coconuts with her starfish, as we now know, mixing the two produces deadly toxins. A marvellous species representing a new transformation of life...as we know it.

Minion 1: bottom "chuckle"
Minion 2: bottom "chuckle"
Minion 1 & 2: "chuckles"
Why the down votes? Someone having a sense of humour fail on a Monday morning?
Have an up vote from me :-)
Did they put their crack team on fixing it? /coat
