    Much like those that tell their stories on 2ch, there are those that do so on 4chan. About two years ago, a man decided to do something crazy. He asked his sister if she'd like him to brush her teeth after recieving inspiration from a thread on 4chan's /a/ board. He then set out to speak of the experiences following that jump, all under the pen name "Oral Hygiene Brother".

    It is really a sweet story, and worth a quick read.

    The site isn't at all hosted or related to 4chan, guess your school scans the text to block, as well.

    Well, first off, the "Ask your sister if you can x" threads have been standard /a/ fare for years. This guy just decided to try it out, and thus the story. His posts started a little over two years ago. I assure you that there was no translation for the Nisomonogatari novel at the time, as Bakemonogatari had not yet made a splash in the Western world.

    @quipna sure, but coudltn it be that this scene in nisemonogatari was inspired by this guy or by those theads? i can definately see NisiOisin beeign a 2 or 4channer., tahts why i was aksing when the novel came out exatly.

    break, hardly.

    Futaba has it's own set of jokes or "memes" if you will. While there are some that carry over between the two, /a/'s "Ask your sister if you can x and then report back" threads were still pretty small at the time.
