This is Slate?: Any idea what they're trying to do?

Err, the word "Parody" comes to mind. As in "the ubuy site is an obvious parody of Ebay, the Mindy site is a parody of girl singers, and the GodzillaSUV site is a parody of SUVs."

Slate's parodies have a common page under the title "Blorple Falls" (which was their indie film festival parody).

My personal favorite is the website of Rep. Blanton Foghorn. It's Foghorn's car dealership that's selling the GojiroSUV.

"Blanton is one of my favorite guests, a great guy, just great, hey, really a great guy, he's really great, boy, hey, what a great guy, it's great to have him on the show."
-- Larry King.

That's perfect.

My favorite part of this site was the "diclaimer" : Mr. LaPierre further warrants and agrees to maintain a fixed distance of 500 feet from Mindy D’Stasio at all times, and to refrain from making or attempting to make any direct or indirect contact with Mindy D’Stasio or any representative of MindyCorp at any time, such contact or attempted contact including but not limited to the following: telephone calls, letters, telegrams, e-mails, videos, pencil sketches, shouts, yells, hollers, calls to psychic hotlines, sock puppets, “erotic pastries,” Origami, interpretive dance, batik, muffler-man sculptures, and notes wrapped around the torn-off heads of Mindy D’Stasio action figures and flung through windows.
