Which part of the Internets crack you up?
« on: August 14, 2008, 02:42:02 PM »
I'm a huge fan of The Superficial (slightly NSFW), the guy who writes for it may come across as misogynistic but he has an undeniably wicked sense of humor.

Another of my favorites is Glasbergen, I haven't been able to find any (full) feeds for his stuff so I just read him (The Better Half) in the newspapers.

Which are some of your favorite funny places on the Intertubes? (Youtube doesn't count!  ;) )

Also, if you've got the time and inclination, which is the funniest DC thread, in your opinion?  ;D

The most consistently sublimbely brilliant and hilarious writing ever put on paper:
The Onion.

I've been a fan of Dave Barry for years.  His blog usually gives me some grins during the day.

I've can always count on Ashleigh Brilliant to make me simultaneously laugh and think. His "Pot-Shots" are small masterpieces.

And what is a Pot-Shot?

From http://www.ashleighb...liant.com/index.html

Quote
[b]WHAT EXACTLY IS A "POT-SHOT" OR "BRILLIANT THOUGHT?"[/b]

 Pot-Shots are epigrams, composed according to the following very strict rules.

The length must never exceed 17 English words. Note that this is a maximum. Some Pot-Shots are much shorter. Hyphenated words count as a single word.

Pot-Shots must be easy to translate into other languages. Therefore there can be no use of rhyme or rhythm, idioms, puns, or other word-play.

Pot-Shots should be capable of being appreciated in all times and cultures. Topical and cultural references must be avoided.

Every Pot-Shot should be as different as possible from every other one.

Every Pot-Shot must be totally original, and unlike anything else the author, or anyone else, has ever said before.

The words of a Pot-Shot must be able to stand on their own, and not require any illustration in order to be understood or appreciated.

Whatever is being said should be worth saying, and said in the best possible way.

NOTE: These are ideal standards, and I myself have failed to meet some of them occasionally -- but in general I have adhered to them quite scrupulously.

Here's an example

The Website is Down!

Anybody who has ever been responsible for a server or end-user support will find a lot to recognize and laugh about here:
