Anyone presently surfing the net at work may appreciate Powerloafing w/ Cubicle Carl
. This miniature sitcom about a guy who goofs off takes place entirely in a cubicle – an admittedly thin premise that delivers more comedy than expected, with the current episode placing that cubicle on the Starship Enterprise. It’s co-produced by an Emmy award winning comedy writer
, (Mr. Show, Chris Rock Show, Mad TV) and a group of alt-comedians you'll recognize if you're a comedy nerd, including: supernerd Brian Posehn
and supergeek Blaine Capatch
. Interesting side note: it’s shot on a fake office set
in a small apartment in North Hollywood. Everyone works for free, even the semi-celebs, and it’s Creative Commons,
. NSFW, due to undeniable goof-off element.

Ask a Republican. Hello! I often get asked questions about Republican policy by greasy-haired liberal hippies. Seattle was no exception in Sept of 2005. It was teeming with them. May God bless you and America

Sometimes movies don't finish the way we'd like
. Short, off-beat, animated re-imaginings of selected movie endings, in torrent and .wmv format. The archives
are yet young, but might be worth keeping an eye on for future chuckles.

Internet based comedy troupe from NYC. Updated Thursdays with sketch comedy and musical
(and sometimes political
) "white box sessions". They also do a live show downtown the first and third Saturday of the month. Their Myspace
has showtimes listed.
Got tipped off to these guys after catching their live show by chance and I've been following them ever since.

It's Friday. It's early. You beat your coworkers into the office. Now for some fun go load up the Office Poltergeist
server onto their machines, note their IP address, and wait a few hours. Later today you can send text to their screen, send sounds, move their windows slightly, and open their CD tray. If you're careful, you can probably keep pranking someone for hours using this. [via MeFi Projects

Creationist author Michael Behe: "Astrology is a scientific theory".
If, that is, you use his definition of theory. Behe, you may recall, is the grand high poobah of "intelligent design", the theory that states that somebody (who totally
doesn't have to be God)
designed all life on Earth. It seems the latest iteration of the Scopes Monkey Trial isn't going so well for Mr. Behe. Even the courtroom audience is laughing at him.

You know how when someone dies in a terrorist attack, media always publishes their high school or vacation photos? youblewmeupyoubastard.com
is there to help. "We'll store a photo of you, giving it large at the terrorists what done you in, and in the event of your body being blown to bits by a suicide bomber, we'll supply your disgusted image to all news services." [via

Comedian Dane Cook's new CD Retaliation
debuted this week at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart
, which is the highest debut for a comedy album since Steve Martin's A Wild and Crazy Guy
in 1978. One reason
for this success has been his presence on MySpace.com
, as well as his personal web page
that is loaded
with content (you can stream large chunks of his two albums, as well as watch a ton of video clips - make sure you watch the Shorties Watching Shorties
clips near the end of his video's list). [more video

George Bush sings
(MP3 contains swearing) and shows how he imagines the world should be. Now that John Ashcroft has left the administration it was clearly time for someone else to step up and lead the vocals. There's more info at Wax Audio
