So this morning I started got a SMS from a number I didn’t recognize and the conversation that ensued was interesting:
What if Microsoft designed the iPod package? Great video and music. I’ll have to watch this again next time I’m working on a new website, less is more. Hat tip: sillybean.
I’m not going to particpate in it, but the “best blonde joke” (example) thing is driving thousands and thousands of hits every day to WordPress.com. It’s traffic on par with a front-page Digg, just constant and steady. Where did this thing come from??? (Continuing my tradition of being a month late to internet trends.)
Chuck Norris 2.0. “Chuck Norris showers with AJAX but no water.” See also: Original Chuck Norris facts, New Chuck Norris facts, and the official Chuck Norris response. 🙂 Update: I highly recommend watching these Walker, Texas Ranger clips on Conan O’Brien. If that struck your fancy, you can always buy the DVD set, I just […]
Tired: Being hired by Yahoo. Wired: Being bought by Yahoo.
After reading about Andy’s adventures I decided I better Google up a French phrasebook for study on the flight. The first hit looks like it would get me in to a little more trouble than I’m looking for. 🙂
Web 2.0 bingo, play it on your next conference call.
A funny comic about WordPress 2.0 in Spanish. 2.0 means “all new bugs”! 😉
Some of the funniest original content on WordPress.com has been coming from Mike of Because the World is Round, it’s worth checking it out and reading through the archives.
Okay, it was very funny that a blogger by the name of Dana Blankenhorn (who we’ve seen before) attributed Why Google Is Faltering on RSS and that “Google needs to bring in someone with a Clue.” He had no “Clue” himself that the person he was trying to roast left the company half a year […]
Six Apart announces more changes to Movable Type license. That sounds like a good model for WordPress.
I’ve got your switching right here. I swear it’s for localization.
The joke no one seemed to get.
You’ll either find this incredibly funny or find it incredible that anyone could find this funny.
Just in time for the Superbowl, Homer Simpson let loose on US nuclear weapons facility. In the first incident, highly-skilled operatives inadvertently drilled into the warhead’s core, provoking a full-scale evacuation of Pantex. They later made a second Chernobylesque blunder by bodging a highly-explosive warhead part back together with tape. Had they subsequently dropped the […]
Another gem. Professors can be so funny: One behaviorist walks up to another at a party and says, “You’re doing fine. How am I?”
I just heard this gem: Descartes walks into a bar. The bartender walks up to him and says, “Would you care for a drink?” Descartes replied, “I think not.” and disappears.
I’m a little late, but Evan Goer wrote a characteristically funny post and it looks like his mother left a comment that had me rolling in laughter, mostly because I could see my mom saying the exact same thing. I followed your link to Chordiant’s home page, and I couldn’t figure out exactly what your […]

While the rest of Ontario was running around in the dark Joe Clark dialed into Compuserve and blogged. His observations cracked me up.
