“Cindy McCain takes the wheel in her own race”: uhhh, wha? She’s into drifting, so much so that she and her son placed 2nd in an amateur competition. Speechless. {via}


Professor Wikipedia: what if Wikipedia had a prominent role in higher education?

Head of Skate: CollegeHumor made a trailer for the Disney movie that Matt Damon referred to.

6 Baffling Mistakes Every Movie Criminal Makes: Cracked has some really good list entries. Favorite quote: “Cool criminal genius Hans Gruber wants to commit a robbery. He comes up with a simple plan that involves committing several dozen counts of kidnapping, several acts of murder, firing missiles at police cars and blowing up an entire skyscraper.”


Bloody Hell: heh.

Diesel XXX SFW: this is a porn video made SFW by animation replacing the underlying actions. There’s nothing shown, but the implication is quite NSFW. Absolutely hilarious!

“Ah, thit.”: described by the missus as “the funniest one she’s seen and that’s not saying a lot.”


Google Moderator: sort of like Stack Overflow but for anything and not really.

Dog on Tramp: not exactly what I was expecting but still fun. {via}

“PETA Urges Ben & Jerry’s To Use Human Milk”: they’re becoming a caricature of themselves. Yay!

U.S. Economic Freedom Index 2008: interesting look at which of the states are freest. It’s all relative, of course, since they’re all still under D.C.’s yoke. {via}


America the Gift Shop: a little too hostile to America, but well executed concept. {via}


Oktapodi: well-done animated short along the lines of Finding Nemo but with octopi. {via}


Wrong Cards: offbeat e-cards for every occasion. Kind of funny.

How can anyone live like this?: holy crap. Holy, holy crap. *retch*

Old-School Pie Chart: yum!

A House By the Park: interesting blog about one man’s journey to building a custom home. The transparency and openness is neat.

Citizen Kang: this reminds me so much of the current election (well, maybe every election). Money quote: “It makes no difference which one of us you vote for. Either way, your planet is doomed. DOOMED!”


IMDB Video: IMDB finally offers full-length video of movies and TV shows. Okay, so it’s kind of Hulu like.

Suspicious Vans: I’d say this one wins top prize. Related: “Van Man” {via}


ROFLrazzi: celebrity captioned photos in the style of LOLcats.

Palin Bags a Bigfoot: I think it might be Photoshopped though. (Side note: didn’t WWN stop publication?)

Sunday Afternoon: a rap about errands and chores. I knew I recognized this guy: he’s the same gent behind Every Day Normal Guy Rap Song. Great work!

Stay At Home Dad: he gets high on baby hugs.

Jar Glove: finally a decent skewering of ridiculous infomercial product dramatizations. It’s about time.

Flickr Memory Game: Ze Frank’s little Flash app that uses your photographs in a game of memory.
