Fireside hot chocolate
Today's Savage Chickens has the absolute best in Olympic demonstration sports, Fireside hot chocolate. Where can I sign up?

Open letters
Open Letters to People Or Entities Who Are Unlikely to Respond contains so many entries that are too brilliant not to mention that I can only gasp and give up on the effort which would surely fall far short of any mark that would count as close to accurate.
I despair at the brilliance of the gems hidden here. Yet I am also elated to have found you. Oh Open Letters to People Or Entities Who Are Unlikely to Respond, I salute you.

Hamster in Tutu Shuts Down Large Hadron Collider
I have a soft spot for hamsters which is why the following article pleases me, although I do feel sorry for the poor rodent.

Adobe Gripes
I was thinking about getting Adobe CS4 with educational discount but reading the following blog I think it might be better to just stick to my current mish-mash of older versions.
Adobe UI gripes

I just harvested a rather impressive fluffbunny from my navel when suddenly it struck me: maybe I need a hobby. Maybe I need to start collecting my navellint. Then rationality prevailed: why would you want to do something like that? Would doing such a thing not be a very clear indication that your life has, somewhere, taken a rather drastic turn for the worse. Then the real realisation hit me: this has probably been done already. Somewhere there is a sad case, someone very disturbed has stolen my idea and has been collecting his daily production ofnavel lint for years and years and has an impressive collection. And, this being the modern world where everyone and his dog has a website, he's been making this known to the world.
I was, of course, correct. Meet Graham whose site contains interesting tid-bits and photos of his collection.
Guess I'll have to find a more original hobby.

An unfortunate position
I was browsing the app store just now and came across a very funny thing which I screenshotted to share.

Night stand is an app that allows you to use your iPhone as an alarmclock. I haven't used it but I'm very tempted right now, who knows what might happen!

Promised good friend Harold (k) to send him the url of Wordsplosion but figured more readers might enjoy it. It's a blog dedicated to bad spelin, "problematic quotes" and apostrophe's.
I like it better than Photoshop Distasters which are sometimes a bit far-fetched.

Well, that's it then...
Crap, you stop looking around for a few days and suddenly you find the earth has been destroyed. Well it was good while it lasted I suppose. Though there were never enough bananas for some reason.

I wrote about the earth destruction website a while ago and last week they announced that in fact the world has been destroyed by those wacky scientist guys at CERN.

Read the latest update:

And to think Mentos just released their Fresh Cola flavor which I really enjoyed as well. The humanity!

Who put the goat in there?

String Cheese
One of the funniest new things I've been reading in my RSS feeds lately is the Photoshop Disasters Blog.

Last saturday's entry on String Cheese is a whammy. It's literally got everything wrong. The stupid kid with the stupid grin, freaky eyes and the silly haircut, along with grossly deformed hands. Why is there a rollercoaster in the picture?

What the heck is string cheese anyway? And why would kids prefer it over the competition? What competition anyway?

Seriously... string... cheese...

Something is very wrong in America.

How to destroy the Earth
Forget global warming, at most it will shift the climate so much that humanity can no longer sustain itself and civilization will collapse. Even if that happens it's likely some buggers, somewhere, will live and breed like the animals they are. Even if all human life is wiped out the rest of the world will pretty much go on as is. Sure, some animal species will become extinct but overall life is resilient and new species will evolve to take their place, in two or three million years little evidence will remain of a pretty minor extinction event which killed off about a hundred species or so in the span of a few hundred years or so, species arise and become extinct all the time. No, if we truly want to destroy the earth we'll have to start thinking bigger. Much bigger. Which is where the following website comes in. A do it yourself guide to destroying the earth for all megalomaniacs and evil professors.

Current Earth-Destruction Status

Number of times the Earth has been destroyed: 0

Be sure to check out the about page as well, you can help the advisory board by taking measurements to see of the earth is still here or not so they can keep their website accurate.

I'm not really a cat person but some of these newfangled lolcats crack me up. Yesterday saw 2 of the best ever. I thought I'd share the links with you in case you're still unconvinced that cats can be funny. hmph interesting

Personal Inventory: the erotic appeal of the Lands' End catalog

Don't bother looking up the Land's End site, it isn't as appealing as I thought it would be. Still: For the lonely man, staring at these women is gazing into bitter, beautiful loss.

Creation museum slideshow
Man, I wondered long and hard on whether to put this into the Atheism category but overall I think it should go into the Funny one instead.

Author John Scalzi (nope, I never heard of him either) took a tour of the new Creation Museum in Godmerica and has posted his findings on his blog. Funnier though is the accompanying flickr photoset. Make sure you have the time as it's 101 photo's long. Set the slideshow to slow and turn on the captions (it's in the options on the lower right side of the screen).

Make sure to occasionally stop the slideshow to read the captions and signs in the museum, I like the ones about travel-sized dinosaurs but then I've always wanted a pet dinosaur for myself. It's a pity that Adam guy spoiled it all for us, as apparently something he did caused a lot of them to stop eating coconuts and instead crave blood red meat.

Folk == Sex
Gah, that will teach me to write about folk music. It attracts all kinds of perverts.

I'm not sure if you're familiar with zefrank's "the show" but his daily video is very funny and well worth a look. Today's example is a prime example.

Today we learn about the history of underwear.

Startling news leaves Mac-users baffled
Following the startling news that Apple's Dictionary application allows one to view webpages Mac-users the world over are baffled as to what this means for the future of their productive lives.

I'm just not sure what this means, moaned Jurjan Dijkstra, chief programmer of OOOk Apps. Is this good or bad? How will this impact future development of new versions of OOOkTunes? Does this mean I will have to release a universal binary of Virtual Pet Rock for Intel Macs? I'm just not sure about anything anymore.

According to his girlfriend the normally stolid developer has taken to sitting in dark corners, listening to Björk and eating chocolate icecream. It's Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough as well, she told this website. Adding: which I was saving for a rainy day.

The whole world over developers and users alike are struggling with how to cope with this important news, casually referred to as a "tip" on Mac OS X Hints, a website devoted to publishing tips and tricks (sometimes of dubious value) surrounding the use of Apple software.

Spyware comedy
There's now an anti-spyware application for Mac OS X called MacScan.

Now all we need is actual spyware :).

Here be chickens
Like some sort of haunting supernatural force, the chickens bubbled up from the darkness of Doug's subconscious mind. In a trance-like state, he drew them on office whiteboards. He drew them in notebooks. He drew them on anything that sat still long enough. People started asking, "Who's drawing those damn chicken cartoons everywhere?"

Doug tried to stop but he couldn't. The chickens were unstoppable. To retain his sanity, all he could do was grab a stack of sticky notes, and release the Savage Chickens.

Cool stuff.

Today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Dasn't forget ye blaggards.

Condom EULA
Ed Foster's Gripelog has an article on a pretty funny end-user licence agreement on promotional condoms. Check it out: Serious EULA Protection.

Comedy gold.
