Fear not, my good man!  I'm sure the denizens of Encyclopedia Dramatica 
are more than ready to step up to the plate and document the phenomenon 
of Mr Peppers' deformity; if anything, their coverage will be more 
complete, and feature more swearing and callous mockery.  As such, they 
can do a much better job of recording Internet culture than we'll *ever* do.
