We got your counterexamples right here

Everybody and her sister knows Rule 34 of the Internet: “If it exists, there is porn of it — no exceptions.”

They say you can’t prove a negative, and maybe that’s true, but there are at least 34 known exceptions to Rule 34. Now whether they will remain exceptions, we do not know.

    You know, though, that somewhere there is a person reading that, saying “challenge accepted,” and firing up their archives of Spinoza or Mr. Pickle pictures.

    Which is why the disclaimer at the end: they may not remain exceptions forever.

    I figure the “challenge accepted” was specifically because attention was brought to those things apparently having no Rule 34 counterparts.

    I will admit, I would have preferred a story testing out Rule 85* of the Internet

    (also apparently sometimes numbered as Rule 42).

    I admit to spending part of last night trying to envision a “tronc pony” in keeping with that rule. I was not successful, though this does not mean it will never happen.

    A tronc pony would be a yak, I think. (I still am imaging “tronc” as a large hairy ungulate that runs around going “TRONC! TRONC!”
