For a while there, we were genuinely excited about internet culture. Smart phones like the iPhone and the gPhone were going to spawn open-source apps that would be smart, entertaining, and elevate humanity forever.

But today we learned that the top-selling app on the iPhone is iFart. When you click the buttons, it makes farting sounds. And according to VentureBeat, it’s selling more than 10,000 copies a day.

Sigh.
