Although it originated from a picture of a man streaching his anus amazingly wide, GOATSE is now a verb.
To cause someone to navigate to a website, which usually contains only one image; by giving a faulty web adress. Said image must be disgusting and scaring. The beauty of GOATSE is that a person only realizes what it is once they have seen it. HAHAHA! PWNED!
(Note: The original GOATSE picture is sometimes referred to as THE GOATSE)
(Note 2: The goatse is one of a huge amount of suh websites)
Therapist: When did all your problems start?
Patient: This one time. When I got GOATSE-d.
A disgusting picture of a man stretching his anus extremely wide. One of the oldest jokes on the internet is to link the picture to internet forums and chatrooms, renamed to look like something else like "happybunnies.jpg" . Often causes people to freak out.
-Hey you know what goatse is?
-no, what is it?
-check this website out!
-oh god it's horrible!

"You've been goatse'd!"
Named for the address of the original website, (goatse.cx) which has since been taken down but not before achieving Internet noteriety. See also tubgirl
The website featured a man bending over with two hands stretching apart the largest bodily orifice in the world. You could see inside several inches deep.
Since then, parody websites have sprung up showing everything from stretched-apart doorways to red-filling-ed cookies.
"Heh. No really, Aunt Sally. I swear goatse.cx has the best apple pie recipes on the Internet."
"Oh god! The Grand Canyon looks just like Goatse! No burro ride for me, thanks!"
Goatse.cx (pronounced "goat see" or "goat see dot cx", often truncated to goatse, often referenced by one of its current URLs, and occasionally called goatsex) is one of the most infamous Internet shock sites. Its front page contains a sexually explicit picture, featuring a man wearing a gold ring on his left hand (and nothing else) manually stretching his anus and rectum to a diameter roughly equal to the width of his hand. Below his gaping anus, the man's dangling penis and testicles are visible. The site is commonly linked to by Internet pranksters in order to shock unsuspecting users with the image.
As of January 14, 2004, the domain goatse.cx is no longer online. However, many mirrors of the site are still available and the image itself has been posted at many other websites. The most common mirror was goat.cx; however, goat.cx was no longer online as of February 22, 2005. As of February 27 of that year, the domain goat.cx, like goatse.cx, had been suspended by the Christmas Island Internet Administration, however the domain as of April 2005 appeared to be back online, showing only the message "be right back." In May 2005, there was an image on the site showing a pumpkin with some hands around it as if it was stretching its anus. Christmas Island Technology Corp has registered goats.cx as of May 24, 2002 with obviously nonexistent name servers, presumably in an attempt to prevent another mirror of the original goatse.cx.
Mom, Dad? I had another bad dream about Goatse, can I sleep in your bed tonight?
