Once upon a Fella, there was a bug. This was a deviantBug. And it bit him. Fella had never been interested in art before, but this bug bugged him so. deviantBug took him to Bollywood Boulevard, where Fella saw awesomeness in paint-bucket loads. It was here, that Fella met Jerk-off
in a mature content area. Fella and deviantBug took them in, and gave them doodles with awesomesauce. It was here that deviantBug bit Fella's guests, which in turn, turned them onto art and they became deviants.
To cut a short story long, many other deviants took shelter at Fella's and got bitten by the deviantBug. These included shutupmonk, Mooned and Chix'R'Us
who had dollar signs in front of their names. Another not worth mentioning, was Lolly - he was so speciality to not have a sign.
The Big Three (Jerk-Off, Stevens and Satire), went on to create the world's best web-bite, which bit others to become one of those dAmn art addicts.
And thus, little children, was the birth of deviantArt. Still going strong after 9 brazillion years to bite the world into art lovers. I had fun with that.
