The Badage Boys are a fictional group and a recurring theme in spam threads.

Overview

Badage Boys threads are usually posted in Sensationalist Headlines, and usually have dramatic or sensational titles designed to give them the impression of being breaking news articles. However, the threads themselves invariably contain descriptions of a set of characters that appear to be the titular Badage Boys. Many of the Boys, such as Azim and Daniel Molloy, are lifted directly from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles series; most of the other descriptions are nonsense, or otherwise pieces of other biographies cobbled together.

The images of each of the Boys appear to bear no relation to their actual character; notable images seen so far include a bald man with a lit candle on his head, a goat wearing a wedding veil, an elephant with a gas mask, an anthropomorphic turtle in a US army outfit, and the Schizoid Man from the cover artwork of King Crimson's debut album.
