“2 girls 1 cup,” the notorious gross-out video that spawned a million YouTube reactions, was a 2007 viral sensation that brought scat porn into the mainstream. The video, which was a trailer for the longer film Hungry Bitches, purported to show two women puking into each other’s mouths and eating each other’s poop. (Does it make you feel less nauseous if we tell you the “poop” was actually just peanut butter and chocolate?)

Now 61-year-old Ira Isaacs, a scat porn producer, has been sentenced to four years in prison on obscenity charges for “producing, selling and distributing” viscerally disgusting porn. Mr. Isaacs was unable to convince the Department of Justice that the films he produced were intended for artistic purposes, an argument which the judge probably lol’d at. Mr. Isaacs invoked the popularity of “2 Girls 1 Cup” in his defense, but that somehow didn’t work.

Mr. Isaacs plans to appeal the sentence, much to the delight of open-minded “art” enthusiasts everywhere.

Update: The Daily Dot issued a correction on its post reporting that Mr. Issacs was the producer of 2 Girls one cup. we’ve changed our headline and updated the post to reflect the fact that Mr. Isaacs did not produce 2 Girls 1 Cup, but invoked it in his defense.
