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!"

A site that is commonly linked to by Internet trolls in order to shock unsuspecting users with the image.

And now, the origins of this madness:
The alt attribute on the image, "stinger", actually comes from the EFNet #quake channel. The image itself was discovered on a webpage. Goatse.cx was created by a #quake member expressly for the purpose of displaying the image.
The image hello.jpg originates from a set of 40 images depicting the man performing various anal sexual acts.
Die, goatse man. Die die die die die. Something involving rusty hooks and salt, hopefully.

A shock image originally from the website goatse.cx, which was intended to be pronounced as "goatsex", although the suffix .cx is no longer in common use when referring to the picture (resulting in the word being pronounced "goat-see". Basically the picture is of a man stretching his anus to frightening length. Like many other shock paraphernalia (such as the infamous 2 Girls 1 Cup)", people will oftentimes prank people by putting a link online of something (such as a sweepstakes or another website) and when someone clicks this link, they will see the image instead of what they were told they would see.

The website had other disgusting images on it until the site was taken down. Since then a website claiming to be Goatse has reemerged.

Unlike 2 girls 1 cup, you will not find very many reaction videos on sites such as YouTube.
If gross images somehow was made into a pro sport, Goatse would be a star player. It WILL scar you for LIFE.

Goatse is one of the best/worst photos up on the interweb.

When a guy spreads out his a$$hole with his hands as far as it will will stretch.
Really gross.
Sadly, it's normally one of the first things someone sees on the internet, whether they get emailed it as a joke (It says "Click here for cute bunny pictures" when it's actually goatse) or they just stumble apon it.
It supposidly is a fetish for some. But, you just gotta think "Who the eff likes that?" since it's so gross.

NOTE: If you're reading this because you don't know what goatse is, DON'T google it! You'll be scarred for LIFE!!
Guy1: *Opens email from Guy2*
Guy2: *Laughs to himself, knowing that Guy1 is probably reading his email*

Guy1: *Sees pix of Goatse* EAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!! *Gags*
