Last week, we told you about the U.K. government’s grand plan to filter out evil porn from its Internet because all that T and A was “corroding childhood.” If porn perusers wanted in on sites like youporn.com, they would have to alert their ISPs or else it would be blocked by default.

Now a handy hacker has figured out the perfect work around if that (seemingly implausible) plan is enacted: “The Great Fire Wall of Porn.” It magically filters out websites that don’t contain porn to create the most satisfying Internet browsing experience in existence.

The hacker lays out the necessary code on his blog (there’s even an instructional video!) for those interested. Taking a cue from other democratic countries with similar filtering systems, like North Korea and Cuba, he explained that he’s doing it for the greater good:

“So i [sic] hear the UK government wants to make a porn filter. About bloody time i [sic] reckon. I’m fed up of happily browsing the Internet for boobs, only to have non-porn related subject matter thrust down my face hole.”

There’s a happy ending for everything.
