Big in a New Light

Remember that Shining trailer from a few weeks back? Now they've done it with Big. (embedded WMV)

May cause slow agonising death

"I have a hard time controlling my urges. Heck, I go home with just about any guy I meet. But then I discovered new Vagiseal." (WMV - NSFW)

Heartwarming cartoons, gone horribly awry

And now, the Everything Old Is New Again Dept. brings you the The Dysfunctional Family Circus Archive. It's been five years since Spinn (a.k.a. Greg Galcik) took down the DFC; but back in the day, the DFC was probably the funniest site on the Web (and might even qualify as the funniest since.) Imitators have sprung up since, of course; and Spinn still runs a similar site, A-1 AAA AmeriCaptions. But somehow it's not quite the same... [Possibly NSFW, if your coworkers can read text on your screen.]

It is well known

It is well known among the computer elite, who are mostly Atheists and Pagans, that Pokemon's pro-Darwinism propaganda is inescapable...

'Cause Knowledge is Power!

Shock 'N' Awe [quicktime] is a timely parody of Elbow Room, a Schoolhouse Rock song that asks the musical question, "What's the difference between Manifest Destiny and Personal Space, anyway?" [shamelessly stolen from MoFi, via eriqx.com]

SkyHigh Airlines

SkyHigh Airlines is one of the funniest, most well done and fleshed out parody sites I've seen on the web. Try everything, plan a trip (notice the luxurious ports of call they fly into), track your lost luggage - oh hell, just click everything, you'll be glad you did. Even the Chairman's letter is funny.

Hilary Clinton parody by Craig Brown

Hilary Rodham Clinton Lets It All In: I couldn’t speak. I could hardly breathe. I was gulping for air. I couldn’t take it any more. There was only one thing left to do. I took it out of my mouth and bundled it back in his pants. A parody by Craig Brown, the man who dared follow in Auberon Waugh's steps, from Private Eye.

No Painted Hussies!

Short of finding your spouse from Jailbabes, the "mail order bride" has to be the worst notion in the proud tradition of horrible spousal selection. But for too long now, the lonely women of the world have been shut out from this marketplace of love. Not anymore, thanks to MailOrderHusbands. Order now, going fast!

Not the onion, but may cause tears

The Onion keeps getting funnier In this week's edition, Antonin Scalia bans the media from covering his acceptance of a free-speech award, and also tells Americans "Most of the rights that you enjoy go way beyond what the Constitution requires." Haw-haw! Get it? Oh, wait a second...

Lounge Against the Machine, folks

I present to you, Richard Cheese. Perhaps the world's greatest twisted musical genius. Take 1 part Weird Al, add some Frank Sinatra, top with a talented musical ensemble, and bake on low — current recipe makes two albums. Seriously now, anyone with a love of music should really check out Mr. Cheese. His cover songs are solid gold. Notable mentions: "Chop Suey!" (System of a Down), "Crazy" (Britney Spears), and "I Used To Love Her" (Guns 'N Roses). And remember, folks, keep on lounging against the machine.

Cutting-Edge Critique of TV or Just a Lot of Guys with No Shirt On?

Cutting-Edge Critique of TV or Just a Lot of Guys with No Shirt On? Exhaustive website of TV shows from the 1950s to the present with discussion of overt gay and lesbian content. Also a lot of coverage of hidden homoerotic content that could be viewed as a parody of academic interpretive overreaching. On the other hand, that didn't stop Jerry Falwell from denouncing Tinky Winky's alleged sexual orientation.

RIP: Hugo Rodriguez.

RIP: Hugo Rodriguez. More tragedy befalls America as groundbreaking web cartoonist Hugo Rodriguez died tragically on Saturday. His son Mookie says he lost his keys in Lake Erie and drowned. Can't America ever get a break? I guess that means my favorite weblog is over. Hugo was a true Patriot - always representing for the Canton, Ohio crew. At least we'll all have the day off.

Childish fun-poking sites

Childish fun-poking sites seem to be springing up everywhere, nowadays. From the looks of this site, and this site, and many others, is the internet continuing to open up as just another medium for people to make fun of eachother, more and more, everyday?

Sample paragraph: "Want to get into work at 11, spend most of the afternoon swapping email with your pals, and fill the remainder of your workday with Quake deathmatches and figuring out what you're going to do with your million-dollar options package once it's vested? Become an engineer!" [via Boing Boing]

I don't know if any of you have killed anyone (I certainly hope not) lately... But if you have, these guys can help with disposing the body. The telephone number actually works. Somebody is there just to keep the joke going. Now, we've all seen the Bonsai Kitten and Baby Smasher sites (I'm not going to relink those, you know how to use Google, don't you?). How many more of these types of gross satire sites should we expect? What sort of social evolution do these sites indicate? A loss of sensitivity? A devaluation of human life? An obsession with death and killing? A just plain twisted sense of humor? What do you think drives the creators of these sites?
