This site is far funnier than I would have imagined it to be.

Who says cynicism can't be hilarious?

Assholes - people who share your very rare first name, but have the poor grace to be amongst the funniest quotable people to have existed.

Ogdens, do you hear my pain?

Somebody do a MetaFilter. I'm not smart and/or clever enough.

This guy is dazzlingly funny. Almost too much to take in too many of these at once.

The Wikipedia one is so meta and so great.

I really like a lot of these but the OCD one, which went up a bit after this was posted, is really dickish, ableist and unnecessary.

"Nantucket" is well put together.

I only clicked through to comment to make the Devil's Dictionary remark.

Note to self: if I thought of it, many other Mefites thought of it first.

I was enjoying it, but the O.C.D., Nagasaki and Nirvana entries left a sour taste in the comedy part of my brain.

The Wikipedia one is so meta and so great.

It makes a lot more sense to me now: Wikipedia isn't the free crowdsourced version of the Encyclopedia Britannica. It's the free crowdsourced version of the Guinness Book of World Records.

Yesterday spent 10 minutes to fill out and mail a 1040EZ, ouch.
