Noch eine Interneterfolgsgeschichte, die gebloggt gehört:

Sorry Everybody was a website created after the 2004 United States presidential election, which invited U.S. citizens to apologize to the world in advance for the actions of George W. Bush in the next four years. Its most prominent feature was the gallery, which contains images submitted by visitors holding various apology notes. The website became massively popular in the aftermath of the presidential elections, leading some Bush supporters to create spinoffs to express they were not sorry.“

„Zetlen’s photo inspired thousands more similar contributions from U.S. citizens, and he compiled a gallery of 8,000 of these photos on his website and published a 256-page book containing approximately 1,000 of them, entitled Sorry Everybody: An Apology to the World for the Re-election of George W. Bush.“

„After Barack Obama’s victory in the 2008 presidential election, the title of the site changed to „Hello Everybody“, and Zetlen invited submissions again–this time of celebratory pictures, of Americans reintroducing themselves to the world.“
