It's been just a couple of months since Reddit, the internet's equivalent of a conversation with millions of Zooey Deschanels, controversially moved to shut down its controversial "jailbait" board. For the years that this most askance of verticals was active, anonymous users who love the idea of having sex with young people (I forget if there's a word for that kind of person) found a judgment-free space to exercise their First Amendment rights by sharing non-pornographic pictures of minors, just as our forefathers intended. Well, some of our forefathers, at least. The ones who signed the constitution in gel pen.

In the wake of Reddit's decision, which detractors are flaming for the censorial precedent it sets and apologists are lauding for its clear display of ethical responsibility, what's an intrepid and mobilized pedophile to do? The answer, unfortunately, is take hir world IRL.

Ladies and gentlemen, you can take the kiddie porn out of the internet, but you can't take the kiddie porn out of the internet without some potential consequences.

Enter Juan Antonio Rosa, a father of two beautiful daughters and an entrepreneur working at a Wendy's location in San Antonio, Texas. In-between the noble doling out of Baconators, Rosa operated another business: the distribution of kiddie porn he'd aggregated during time not spent around a deep frier.

All it would take is a password-- some whispered "Scooby Doo" to him, others said "[expletive] on a stick" underneath a cough-- and an extra fifty dollars, and Mr. Rosa handed his customer a memory drive filled with two to five videos of minors engaged in sexual activities. Mr. Rosa contacted these customers via Facebook, inviting them from far and wide into the Wendy's where he peddled his ware on the side.

When the feds became privy to his activities, they arrested Mr. Rosa immediately. In spite of tearfully claiming that he isn't a deviant, offering instead an explanation amounting to his "just trying to make some money off of it," the court proved predictably unsympathetic. Mr. Rosa will serve the next 21 years in a federal prison.
