Kek (also known as Top Kek) is /s4s/'s light and freedom.
Kek was started by prime minister face as a simple knock off of the many Top Lel threads, but with the help of mods, OC and funposting, the thread broke the post limit and lies at 6,200+ posts. The original/first Kek thread went on for over 40+ days until its inevitable death, followed by kek's resurrection in a new thread, "more kek", also started by prime minister face.
Here's a quick explanation for all you poor newfiggots
-namefig named prime minister face starts posting on board -uses kek instead of lel -various reactions ranging from praise to animosity occur -posts the first thread with an image of an eti topkek snack, accompanied solely by the text "kek" -is ridiculed at first, but continues to samefig the thread with more replies of the word "kek" -hours later, a mod joins into the party with the reply "modding an epic kek thread" - mod epic troles the thread by changing image and text sizes and banning those who use "top lel" -somehow in the process, the thread loses its bump limit entirely -thread remains alive for months due to the dilligence of [s4s]itizens, until it is mysteriously bump limited by a fun-hating mod who is still to coward to show his face -prime minister face attempts to revive the kek thread, but it fails once again due to bump limit
despite no longer having an eternal kek thread, it still remains the mortar of [s4s] culture
Seriously though, what the hell is Kek?
Topkek™ is a brand of turkish cakes, from the ETi company. "Topkek" literally translates to cupcake. It is truly çok yonlu kek!
- "On the evening of June 25, 2013, topkek was declared dead. The cause of death is not established, however, there are a few witnesses who recall a mod setting a bump limit on topkek, causing failure of the heart and ultimately death. This coincided with Captain Kek's prophecy that topkek would be "Betrayed by one of this 12 global mods." Many suspect that the thread had actually died from a lack of kek from the witnesses, who they claim let it fall past page 10. Still others insist that topkek's death was connected with his decision to run for king in the Royal Election" -- From The S4S Tribute, Fourth Issue.
On June 26, 2013 prime minister face resurected kek by starting a new thread, "more kek." After mod intervention, the thread had its' bump limit, and post limit removed by a mod who messed with the html, similar to what happened with kek's first thread/appearance.
"more kek" thread
July 22, that year, the thread imploded, prompting prime minister face to start a new thread
Where is kek now?
kek continues to be a guiding force on [s4s], being the subject of many a thread, and adored by most shitp4sters everywhere.
