Hodor. (HBO)

Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor, Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor: Hodor.

If you wish every news article — and, really, every single piece of text on the Internet — looked exactly like that introductory sentence, you need to download the free Hodor Chrome extension.

When activated, the Game of Thrones-inspired tool replaces every word it can find on a webpage with the word “Hodor.” FOX News, MSNBC, your email, Twitter, whatever: all transformed into a long blanket of “Hodors.”

Cynics might say that this improves the Internet greatly. We never would!

Hodor, Hodor, and Hodor have Hodors today. Write on their Hodors?

The extension is fairly glitchy. Often, you’ll see cascading Hodors up and down the page, out of place from where they would normally sit. Look, for example, at what Hodor does to The New York Times.

Here’s what it should look like:

And here’s what Hodor does to it:

So it’s not a perfect Hodorization. Still, it’s a fun idea and a neat way to view the Web. And, what’s more, Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor.

You can download the Hodor extension for free here. Clicking the Hodor face Hodorizes a webpage, though you’ll have to reload the page to see the Hodors. Click the Hodor again to turn off Hodorizing. Hodor.
