Original YTMND:
The Bauman E-mails: A Dramatic Reading  
Worthy spinoffs:

Dramatic Reading sites are YTMNDs in which a user reads aloud from a passage in a way which makes the text in question appear out-of-context. A good example of this is The Bauman E-mails: A Dramatic Reading a site created by boomaga after the eBaum's World controversy in which he read the Cease and Desist emails sent by the the Baumans in the voice of a mock Shakespearean actor. The sheer ridiculousness of the hammy, faux-English accent coupled with the use of internet slang (the term "lol" is used in one email, Boomaga decided to pronouce it how it's spelled) and other odd phrases (for example, "you have lost your Yiddish cup!") gained it mass popularity and caused it to stay at the Top-rated YTMND spot for several weeks. While The Bauman Emails is not the first "reading" site to be made (sites such as Peta People Smart! predate it by at least a month), it is undoubtably the most famous and was added to the Hall of Fame, later starting the Dramatic Reading fad ([1]).

Dramatic Readings continues to be a strong fad with incredible submissions like A Dramatic Floorball Letter Reading.

The site Breakup Letter, Dramatic reading is currently the second-most viewed site on YTMND.
