It's still the very early days of Vine, and yet there's already an air of stigma around Twitter's video-sharing app. 

It's still the very early days of Vine, and yet there's already an air of stigma around Twitter's video-sharing app

Plenty of porn—a few self-shots, but mostly just videos of computer screens—popped up just a few hours after the app went live, and the volume of it grew over the weekend, leading to a porn clip making its way to the curated Editor's Picks section.

Though porn is perhaps the most discussed Vine topic to date, at least in terms of media coverage, there are a few other quirks pointed out in this amusing fake App Store description of the fledgling app.

(Somewhat serendipitously, Vine was briefly featured in Apple's App Store before getting yanked after Monday's porn kerfuffle.)

The spoof app description, tweeted by @death_stairs, calls out Vine on hosting porn, turning smartphone-wielding creators into wannabe auteurs, trolling others in the comments (because there's no way to get blocked for spamming), questionable editor curation, and creating tedious stop-motion clips of eating a meal.

Vine's editor's picks featured explicit "dildoplay" porn
Oh Vine. You were doing so well. It didn't take porn long to show up, but when it did, you reacted quickly. You started putting an "inappropriate content" label over much of the explicit material. But your latest porn move hasn't made many users happy.

Dog caught eating paper decides killing witness is the only way out
This dog knows it's being bad. It knows it's not supposed to eat the paper near its master's desk. And it knows that it'll get in trouble if it's caught eating the paper it's not supposed to eat.
