Can an image url change to another image?

Now the image switched back to the original gif after I reported the post to the mods and sent them a message late last night...-_-

I love looking crazy.

Yeah I used to do it, if you hotlinked my site, pr0n showed up.
I bet I got a lot of people banned on message forums :D

I also had it do that for audio files, it would replace it with a "ooo aahhhh ooo yes ooo ahh" like noise.

This is actually a super common occurrence with Tinypic. This is why lots of forums especially strongly recommend not using that site, and using something like imgur instead. Some ban Tinypic outright. The problem is that often the original link you posted will be reused and end up pointing to an offensive or porn image, which can get you banned. Tinypic really isn't recommended for anything more than very temporary sharing. If you want long-term, use something else.
