F40PH Fridays

Yet another 4chan meme. On Fridays, the 4chan /b/ board used to get flooded with ‘Furry’ hentai posts – in honour of Furry Friday. These images feature anthropomorphic animals in a sexually explicit way. To counter this ‘scourge’, the guys at /b/ created F40PH Friday.

The F40PH is – well, it’s a train.

 

According to Wikipedia, the General Motors Electro-Motive Division model F40PH is a 3000 horsepower B-B diesel-electric locomotive built from 1976 onwards. Supposedly, it's quite a train - equipped with a turbocharged 16 cylinder, two-stroke, water-cooled "Vee" diesel engine.

Anytime anyone started a ‘Furry Friday’ thread, it would be flooded with pictures of the great F40PH. Often 4channers use a directory dumper to mass-dump pictures of the train into the thread, taking it over. 


Here's a video featuring some of the F40PH pictures used on F40ph Friday:

The only thing that made this whole thing funnier was how mad it made the yiffers.

You idiots, stop obsessing over a locomotive. I'm a Railraoder, I know what I'm talking about.

@ADW Nope, it ain't a meme until Rule 85 is put into practice.
