This is a great interview[1] about Something Awful featuring creator Rich "Lowtax" Kyanka. The Something Awful forums had a board called Fuck You and Die, which was a predecessor to 4chan's /b/. YTMND's lineage to SA is acknowledged here as well.

If you used to post on the SA forums, you'll probably get a load of nostalgia hearing this again[2]

(this was the background music of the board where deleted threads went to die)
