South Park does the "Aristocrats" joke.
(WARNING! Windows Media file, very very
not safe for work.) "The Aristocrats" is a long-lived comedians' in-joke--or, rather, an extraordinarily filthy joke that's not really a joke. (Gilbert Gottfried knocked 'em dead
with it shortly after 9/11.) Now it's going public (sort of): Penn Jillette
and Paul Provenza are making a movie
featuring over 100 comedians telling their own versions. The South Park
version linked above is "not even in the top 5 for dirtiest." Yikes!

"My body has learned that it can fly."
Penn Jillette (of Penn and Teller fame) describes his experience in zero G, riding the "vomit comet" - a bare-bones 747 that goes up really fast and then comes down really fast, leaving you weightless for about 30 seconds. His letter is at time hilarious, at times pretty gross (they don't call it the vomit comet for nothing), but most of all, I found it kind of... well, inspiring. Now, more than ever, I want to go into space and experience zero G. (via memepool
