The entirety of SCP-PL-6470-J with the memetic hazard censored, as of 01/16/2021, 3:59 p.m.

Item #: SCP-PL-6470-J

Object class: Keter Decommissioned

Special Containment Procedures: The subject currently cannot be contained within a singular site. It should be ensured that it does not escape the servers of individual branches of the Foundation. The subject shows extremely strong memetic properties and it can be accessed by employees of Clearance Level 4 or higher. Due to termination of SCP-PL-6470-J, no Special Containment Procedures are required anymore.

Note: The following description was written before the object's decommission, and as such it could contain inaccuracies. Updated information is available in Addendum 6470-J.1.

Description: SCP-PL-6470-J is a document designated SCP-PL-KOT-J. It is presented as an SCP document, however its content consists of a single photo of a black colored Felis catus sitting on a black office chair and looking to the right (from the perspective of the reader). Each and every person that did not go through sufficient memetic training looking at SCP-PL-6470-J will have a strong desire to praise the report as the best they have ever seen in their life and to spread information about it to as many people as possible. In many cases, people affected by SCP-PL-6470-J will experience confusion. People who are resistant to the primary effect of the subject often feel embarrassed or angry when perceiving it. SCP-PL-6470-J was created by Dr. ████████████ at night from 01/15/2021 to 01/16/2021 as a "social experiment". Dr. ████████████ expressed that he supposedly was not aware of the document's memetic effect and planned to delete all information about it after some time, but the reaction of personnel affected by it rendered it impossible (see: Incident 6470-J/2021). The culprit was punished with a temporary restriction of permissions and a disciplinary interview.

Incident 6470-J/2021 On 01/16/2021 at 12:26 a.m. Dr. ████████████ shared SCP-PL-6470-J on a Polish Branch server, encouraging his coworkers to read it. A large part of the staff picked up the memetic threat emitted by the document and took action to remove it, but most of the employees became affected by it and started praising the report in a way inadequate to its content (a single photo of a black cat), for example:

Jestem zdumiony niewiarygodnym poziomem tej pracy. (I am amazed at the incredible quality of this work.)

Mój nowy, ulubiony polski obiekt (…). (My new, favorite Polish object (…).)

or in a simplified and infantilized way:

(…) kotek słodki af ((…) kitty cute af)

Kot (Cat) (sic)

On the same day at 12:50 p.m. the information about SCP-PL-6470-J leaked into the international server. Successively, copies of the file appeared on the servers of individual branches: International Translation Archive (12:52 p.m.), Korean (01:36 p.m.), Italian (02:22 p.m.), Chinese (02:42 p.m.), Spanish (03:16 p.m.), Japanese (04:58 p.m.), Russian (05:03 p.m.) and German (11:39 p.m.). This is the state of the object as of 11:41 p.m. and it may change in the future. Foreign readers reacted similarly to the original Polish ones, perceiving these copies as "translations" of the report:

I really like the quality of the translation.

지금껏 본 번역 중에서 제일 원문에 충실한 번역이었습니다. (기립박수) (It was the most faithful translation ever seen. (Standing ovation))

Addendum 6470-J.1: Decommission

On 01/18/2021 at 10:00 a.m. SCiPnet server administrator Dr. Maxwell alongside MTF Eta-10 ("See No Evil") launched the decommission procedures of SCP-PL-6470-J. The original file has been deleted, and all copies on foreign servers have been tracked by Eta-10 and are pending termination. The staff of the individual branches have been adequately instructed to prevent further spread of the anomaly.

Note: Jesus, finally. It wasn't even funny. — Dr. ██████████
