Big bird, fired.
Seems the economy has truly fallen on hard times when they start letting the puppet people go. Sesame Street lays off 70; can complete financial collapse be far behind?

Johnny Ganja Seed
This certainly is not fighting stick figures. It is a series of cartoons about the savior of the herb. Seeing as it is today... I thought I would post it. Flash, large files and funny.[via Flazoom]

Harry Secombe passes at 79.
I just saw the Peter Sellers bio on American Movie Classics the other day, and found out how important The Goon Show
was in the history of comedy. A Hard Day's Night
and Monty Python had their roots in this groundbreaking British radio show that ran from 1949-1960.

Congress Adds 'All Your Base Are Belong To Us' Amendment To Bankruptcy Bill
WASHINGTON, DC-- Seeking to increase fiscal accountability among citizens who have no chance to survive make their time, the House of Representatives added an "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" amendment Monday to H.R. 333, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2001. "What you say!!!" shouted the bill's sponsor, Rep. George Gekas (R-PA), following the amendment's approval. "This bill will not only make debt-ridden Americans more accountable, but it has the added benefit of taking off every 'zig' for great justice." Opponents of the amendment protested that it would potentially set up U.S. the bomb.

About as creepy as an old copy of Creepy,
but much funnier and much more crude. Flash stuff in the old Mad
magazine vein. And best of all, no banner ads and largely non-commercial.
So why aren't their more original, non-arty, non-techno-ey, non-animal-abusing, non-commercial Flash things like this?

The Jesus Christ Superstore
(supposedly) sells action figures, modeled after Jesus, the Pope, Buddha, Krishna, and more. "Putting the fun
back into fundamentalism and the laughter
into sectarian slaughter." (Yeah, it's a novelty link. But it's a good one.)

Do you have an abnormally large male genital?
Have you been injured by one in the recent past? My favorite part: "While it is true that 1.5% of home accidents are caused by large penis related incidents, only a small number have ever been known to be fatal. A large penis is a friend as well as a foe. Treat it as such."

is, of course, intended as humor, albeit rather coarse humor, but it's all too depressingly accurate. Why does customer service suck so badly these days? [Spotted at Joel on Software
, whom I haven't disagreed with much lately... probably because he hasn't said
much lately. :-)]

"Mistakes We Knew We Were Making"
Dave Eggers' new appendix for the paperback edition of AHWOSG
, extends the self-analysis even further. "Typical conversation a month after publication: 'Would it be possible to remove my name?' 'Of course.' 'Why?' 'Well, no offence, but I really didn't think anyone would see the damn book.'"

Behold, the Arnocorps! "ArnoCorps is never at a loss for inspiration when it comes to lyrical content. Based on international lore and mythology, their songs shed light on both the particular and universal themes of human existence. Offering gripping stories about engaging characters which raise the sorts of questions contained in great philosophical works-- such as why are we here, what is the meaning of our lives and what happens after we die? "
The original Arnold Schwarzenegger tribute band. Enjoy.
