Everyone's favourite stickers from childhood are back. The originals were developed by Maus author Art Spiegelman way back in 1967, with the first series
of stickers being released in 1973.
, often gross
, Wacky Packages were a 10-year-old's dream come true (with Garbage Pail Kids
a close second).

(MP3 download), the radiohead country and western medley. Please note there is absolutely no reason to post this apart from it's Friday, it's a bank holiday weekend and it made me laugh. If you're looking for in-depth then move along, nothing to see here...

The Gospel of Debbie.
Paul Rudnick in The New Yorker: "Recent works like “The Passion of the Christ” and “The Da Vinci Code” seek to illuminate the life of Jesus. Not long ago, an additional text was discovered in an ancient linen backpack found in a cave outside Jerusalem, surrounded by what appeared to be early Roman candy wrappers and covered with stickers reading “I [heart] All Faiths” and “Ask Me About Hell.” A parchment diary found inside the backpack appears to contain the musings of one Debbie of Galilee."

James Saldana from Southern Illinois University has created a anti-RIAA parody called Fight Back! "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister replaces "I Fought the Law". Go here: http://nmc.siu.edu/~pepsi/
There are also mirrors up, so hopefully it doesn't get shutdown too quickly. Pulled from iPodLounge

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.

Quote Some Reviews
of some very bad movies, and wrap it all up in a pretty package that parodies the movie's posters. Hilarity ensues. (I'm not being sarcastic. I woke my spouse up out of bed laughing at this-- and I was in the kitchen.) It's a feature of Moviepoopshoot.com
, which has evolved from a promo site for a Kevin Smith movie. I guess we'll know if Smith really has a sense of humor if we see the Critical Mess treatment
given to Jersey Girl, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, or Mallrats.

Here's a fine way to start a Thursday: pour a cup of joe, settle into your ergonomic chair, and enjoy 80s Ending
, a funny little film by Douglas Jordan. Six minutes long, well worth the watch.

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!

Bush and Chirac debate Iraq
"I will bomb him in his car;
I will bomb him from afar.
I will bomb him in his house;
I do not like him, he’s a louse.
I’m going to bomb him here and there.
I’m going to bomb him everywhere."

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.

Dow and Their PR Agency
got more than a pie in the face, more like egg all over 'em. Two different activist parody productions exposed their continuing despicable behaviour toward the Union Carbide release in India back in '84 when thousands died and many more continue with serious health problems. Dow and said PR firm tried to get the sites shut down, which just generated a WHOLE BUNCH more negative publicity. The sites were moved, but remain for you viewing pleasure.

Twas the night before Xmas and all through the net,
The geeks would be googling the ascii character set;
Metafilter refreshed on their PCs with care,
In the hopes that their FPP soon would be there;
Then up in the blue there arose such a clatter,
Mathowie sprang up to see what's the matter;
When, what to my wondering eyes there should be,
The canonical list of "Twas" parodies.

Modern Drunkard has posted a handy guide for the alcoholic in us all, a set of gestures to communicate your needs when it's too loud to hear, or just because, as the site says, "when words come out, whiskey can't get in."

A Mad Parody Of The Onion
Well, if this isn't Meta, I don't know what is. Certainly, we all know about The Onion
(and, indeed, our consensus is that we don't post Onion links here). The fine fellows at MAD magazine
have hoisted the Area Men by their own petard. I hate to say it, 'cuz I think The Onion is often quite funny, but they've got it nailed. (via Heath Row's Media Diet

If you work in an office with lots of people, chances are that you work with a person who hangs pictures
up that their kids have drawn. The pictures are always of some stupid flower or a tree with wheels. These pictures suck; I could draw pictures much better. In fact, I can spell, do math and run faster than your kids.
