Dog Years or Internet Years

Today seems to be one of those days where I feel like an Internet old-timer. I’ve been getting copies of email jokes I’ve seen, photoshop gags I’ve seen, and websites I’ve seen. Apparently there are some people who haven’t seen them, yet I am not one of them. It’s a bit of a worry that the older I get, the more it seems to be a truism that there’s nothing new under the sun.

Today’s big tipoff was a link from Fleshbot to It’s been years since I first discovered and/or was directed towards the site and I still think it’s funny as hell, in much the same way as I seem to remember the tagline as being something like ‘For those of us who can’t breath through our ears’, but there you go. The next thing I’ll get is a link to hampsterdance or something.

Speaking of which, in my travels on the weekend I happened across a link from
MetaFilter to a list of the top 10 internet fads over at
The Wave Mag.
I’ll admit I hadn’t seen Lightning Bolt! but I had seen everything else and a few other things besides. It’s a great shame they aren’t on the list, and I don’t get why the StarWars kid was rated number one. I thought a lot of the All Your Base ripoffs were hilarious and I just don’t understand why people falling over is funny. So here are a few links to other favourite sites of mine to keep you entertained until I next decide to grace you all with updates.

Ill Will Press, home of Neurotically Yours and Foamy the Squirrel. It’s a web cartoon and I think it’s wickedly funny, particularly some of Foamy’s Fan Mail. It’s a tad bandwidth hungry, but well worth it.

The Insanity Test. I don’t know why this is funny, but it is. Wheee!

Gonads and Strife. Also funny for some strange reason and also containing Wheee! An IRC quote database. Only funny for the computer and/or geek literate and even then, not all the time.

Well, there you go: a host of odd/funny links to entertain you until my next update. Enjoy!
