Want To Rid Yourself of Bieber Fever For Good?

Blockin' Bieber

If you’re as tired of logging on to Twitter only to see nothin’ but Bieber trending, you’re not alone. A web designer has created a browser tool that will spare you of any and all Bieber mentions.

From The Telegraph:

The Shaved Bieber application, which users can add to their browser by saving it as a bookmark, covers up all instances of the words “Justin Bieber” and “Bieber”, as well as any photos that include Bieber in their file names.

The tool is likely to prove particularly popular on Twitter, where the incessant tweeting of his teenage fans ensures that Bieber’s name is rarely absent from lists of trending topics, which reflect the most talked-about subjects on the site.

Shaved Bieber, which can also be downloaded as Firefox add-on, is the work of web designer Greg Leuch, a member of the Free Art and Technology online creative collective.

He has previously devised a plug-in that converts text from upper case to lower case, in reaction to the caps lock-heavy blog posts of rapper Kanye West.

Personally, I’m digging the Biebdawgs, but this kind of thing would be useful for all sorts of things. The Pratts, ex-boyfriends, a blogger you can’t stand (not me, of course.) Who would you use this kind of technology to wipe off your Interwebs?

  • lmao that’s hillarious.. I love this guy.. And the name of the app is priceless too hahaha

  • Kinda 1984 if you ask me. Anyway, I’ve seen things like bustin jeiber make a trending topic, so it’s likely that this app won’t stop his fans. They kinda of remind me of computer hackers, in a way.

  • Haha, I already had this installed so when I saw the story it was all blacked out. :) Ahh the joy of less Bieber in my life!

  • He’s such a twirp..! Some hard hittin pipe thugs needs to show him how to play Pulp Fiction..!

  • I’d love to put him in a stranglehold, whip out my cordless Wahl trimmer, and clip off those damn bangs! The immense popularity of this annoying little turd is sufficient evidence to support the theory that females between the ages of 9 and 13 are complete and total nitwits. My only hope is that 20 years from now he ends up like Lief Garrett

    • I agree wholeheartedly! When I was 12-13, I’m pretty sure I was in love with Zach Morris. :D
