"Oscar Fashions" was such a cheap laugh, but I laughed. Cute.

I'm pretty sure Dave Berg used to do this shtick in Mad magazine.

Students duped by ‘tree octopus’

So good. The guy in the next cube is now eyeing me. He sees I am chuckling and senses weakness.

fartknocker, that link is somehow addictive. Although it doesn't have everything, somehow. Heresy.

Repenting the heresy.

Please please please let's not start this. Can't we just talk about circumcising de-clawed overweight cats and all get along?

fartknocker, what happens on that site when you enter "METAFILTER" is rather amazing.

FUCK YEAH DERAIL

but fuckyounouns is so much more entertaining than the site this was originally about.

Hello, "OscarS". Plural. The Grouch is not enough. Must add Mayer, Wilde, Madison, De La Hoya. Put a little effort into it, please.

All of these FUCKYEAH sites would be better without the FUCKYEAH. It adds nothing and only detracts. It's juvenile.
