Just going to let this one speak for itself - comedian Isabel Fay offers a retro-styled tribute to people who leave horrible comments on YouTube videos. 

Very funny, very true - and very rude (much like the source material), it features contributions from Richard Herring and Josie Long, and lines such as "You wished me cancer... and mis-spelled cancer." It has already had more than 150,000 hits, and as Fay reports on her Twitter page, media requests have begun to arrive.
