If this is going to be about ugly websites...

I've always been amazed that one of the best bespoke shirtmakers in the world has one of the ugliest websites.

Who's Dorothy Garland? Is he confusing Judy Garland with her character Dorothy Gale? Is that supposed to be funny?
posted by Jaltcoh at 9:52 PM on May 25, 2010


Judging by the twitter feed, this is some kind of half-joke for people who

a) Understand British politics
and
b) aren't tired of "fake bad website" gag yet.
posted by drjimmy11 at 9:53 PM on May 25, 2010


But it's a good fake bad website, with lots of little details and jokes about butter and commemorative plates.

I want to give this guy my money.

The "fake bad website" is just a wrapper for some amazing hilarity. Watch the videos.

It's like if Cholmondley-Warner and Grayson had come about in the dairy industry of 1994 and been just one person and not two!

Bad Space King!

This was funnier than I expected, but sometimes he pushed a little too hard. Which is also funny. Or sometimes not.

I thought the Dorothy Garland picture was funny. Well, not the picture. But Dorothy + Garland = hilari...no, well, amusing.

It's kind of a really good fake-bad website, except it barely elicits a smirk - a bald parody.

The hotel one is brilliant. I think the character works best when he's juxtaposed with non-grotesque people.

They even got the code right -- no doctype declaration, no CSS, "INSERT PAGE TITLE HERE" *(I would have gone with "Welcome to GoLive 4," myself) Frames!

Fabric Land's suggested use for its cotton shirt fabric is... You know what? I'm actually speechless.

Oh my god, malevolent. That's... that's just blown my tiny mind right out through my face.

If I had any fabric needs, I'd order from Fabric Land. I like their sassy attitude:

Can I pay by Pay Pal?
No we do not deal with Pay Pal as we do not offer a shopping basket. We offer English Speaking people in this Country who sew, and are very nice. Actually. On the telephone.

Can I pay in Euro's ?
Of course not this is England/ United Kingdom and at this moment still have our glorious Pound.
