Bored during his winter school break, Firas Alkhateeb, a senior history major at the University of Illinois, crafted the infamous "Joker" picture of President Obama using Adobe's Photoshop software.

Five Web sites generally dominate the top 30 list as the most visited newspaper sites, but an upstart has blasted its way into the top 5, bumping a veteran down a notch. Check out the list and the stats...

There are many who scorn twitter, calling it a "tool of self-centricism" and an "it's all about me" app... but when it comes to taking self-obsession to the max, no one does it better than Dawn! Here's one comment: "You should've stopped with the injections. It's a dangerous addiction, you don't want to look like one of those horrible examples...

I can actually see the abnormal dent in your chin from the sideview (5th picture)." and another "You are the female equivalent of Michael Jackson. So vain!" (scroll down to read all of the comments - if they already haven't been edited out!)

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
