Navel gazing, I mean grazing, oh dear

Cultivating the navel:
The first thing I wanted to do was to change clothes and take a shower. But when I took off my sweater, to my amazement, I could see something sticking out of my belly button! I couldn’t believe it: something was growing in there! [truly, the best of the web, via J-Walk]

A Monty Python art lover, perhaps?

(Danger! Danger! Silly .gif images ahead!) A little something to file under "wacky web": ballOOns Museum German web site, featuring classic paintings and sculpture with a dollop of goofy animation thrown in for fun. After you enter, click "Gemälde" and "Skulpturen" in the new window to view the galleries.

rude postcodes

Rude place names. If you're in England then this is for you. Please bare with us rest of the world, this is what we really like in our humour (at least it in Kilburn). If you're not in England then feel free to use my postcode, NW2. Ooooo, titter ye not (and who will be the first wag to post "not"?)

Vote for Braaaaaaiiiiinsssss!

Bush has a new running mate: Zombie Reagan. From the FAQ: What are some other advanatages of adding Zombie Reagan to the ticket? He will demonstrate America's resolve to continue the battle against terrorism. Instead of retreating to an undisclosed location, for instance, Zombie Reagan will be on the front lines, eating illegal combatants.

Are you an Asinus Petasatus? Then you'll love this...

Arsole? Putrescine? Dickite? Moronic Acid? This list of Molecules with Silly or Unusual Names (one NSFW image) proves that scientists can be funny, as does this Stuffy Scientists page, and Mark Isaak's terribly thorough Curiosities of Biological Nomenclature (see, especially, Puns). If you are tempted to wonder what the Father of Taxonomy might have thought of the irreverence of those last two collections, keep in mind that Linnaeus himself named this plant "Clitoria Mariana" in honor of an 'acquaintance', according to this page.

teacher freakout!

There are goofy news items every day, but once in a while you have some story that transcends them all. Teacher accused of ordering student thrown from window is quite possibly the silliest story I've seen this year. It's beyond the Onion. Teacher enters class and takes photo of students, one student objects, teacher makes a disparaging remark about the way the student looks and student hits an emergency button, then the teacher orders two boys to throw her out the window (where she suffered injuries). Best line about the boys "they threw the girl out the window because they did not want to be written up for disobeying a teacher."

Put a little edge in your Christmas

Do you find the seasonal festivities a little cloying? One too many fruitcakes? Let the amazing horror masked karate killer girl from mars give your holiday a little edge. Prefer to have an S&M Christmas? Why not vent your seasonal spleen by kicking a little Santa butt and then festooning your tree with a few suitable pornaments? (flash & film alert, mildly nsfw stuff)

Very Silly Parties

In a British Parliamentary by-election yesterday, there was a surprise upset. It had little to do with the candidacy, however, of Alan Howling Lord Hope (59 crucial votes), current leader of the Monster Raving Loony Party. The Party was founded by the very late Lord Sutch, whose current political activity is unknown. Besides the current California circus, we yanks haven't had a good "hampaign" since this man (we're overdue).

Tension busters and assorted flash innanity

Tense times all around, globally and here on MeFi! Many of us may be feeling a bit anxious and even a bit desperate. Perhaps a few little flash diversions would help to lighten the mood lest anyone be tempted to kick the cat or tease the dog. We could definitely all use a good laugh or two. After all, you only live twice.

Pure. Meaningless. Funny.

Meaningless and funny. I think the web is totally lacking in good writing that is totally irrelevant, funny, and doesn't try to preach. Why does everyone have to take a stance in order to be popular? Irritus is completely immaterial and cracks me up. It's perfect friday material.

The original K9 top coat lycra bodysuit!

Bored with ordinary pet clothes? Jaded with even the fancy stuff? Okay, then - go over the top and put your dog in a skin-tight lycra bodysuit. Not only does it make almost any dog look oddly aerodynamic, it has the added benefit of making them look really, really silly.
