trivia: In November 2015, Scott modified Celebrity Goo Game to start generating celebrity goos directly on the server with software called Imagemagick, with source images fetched from Bing's API, sparing him the time-consuming trouble of making goos in a separate image-editing program like Photoshop and uploading them to the server where Funeratic was hosted.
