A new polling scheme is on the rise over at 4chan to make North Korea's third-generation dictator Kim Jung Un the "People's Choice" in TIME Magazine's Person of the Year. As of 2 p.m. (ET) today, Kim Jung Un is trailing Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy as the second ranked candidate in the poll. Back in 2009, 4chan pranksters staged an upset by voting the website cofounder Christopher Poole (a.k.a Moot) as the World's Most Influential Person.



You Saw This Coming of the Day is a feature series following the latest news in current events that have been on the ticking clock, as well as news and social media commentaries that are predictable or cyclical in nature.

If you go to Rick Santorum's official website, you might find a picture of 4chan founder Christopher Pool (a.k.a Moot) sandwiched in between two photographs of the former Republican presidential candidate. First spotted by a Redditor, the image was soon confirmed as authentic by a spokesperson for the web design firm National Builder, who revealed that the site was designed by a contractor at the political consulting firm Brabender Cox. ... could this have been a clever web designer's intentional ploy to make the website go "viral"?

First: Anonymous 4Chan trolls posted a fake screenshot of a tweet by verified "Entertainment Tonight" that "confirmed" Justin Bieber had leukemia. Tweets from Kanye, Nicki Minaj, and Chris Brown seemed to support the news.

Then: Beliebers began posting pics and vids of themselves with their heads shaved in a global show of support hashtagged #BaldForBieber.

Miraculously: The rumors were false and the Biebs is just fine, and now supposedly, a bunch of tweens have no hair.

Follow Up of the Day: Well, 4chan's Forever Alone Involuntary Flashmob was kind of a bust. There might have been something worth watching, except the cam site crashed almost immediately (as might have been expected).
