Seen any strange or funny websites lately? (VANITY)
self | self

Posted on 11/20/2001 9:58:55 AM PST by general_re

Okay, this is a shameless vanity, but let me explain. One of my favorite hobbies is collecting strange, offbeat, quirky, weird, funny, or otherwise oddball websites and locales on the internet. So, where better to ask about that sort of thing than the home of the quirky - FreeRepublic ;)

So, with that in mind, I'm asking everyone to kick in with their favorite offbeat or weird site. Anything that makes you laugh, chuckle, or just go "hmmm" is fine. And to get everyone started, and in the spirit of sharing, below is a list of a few that I have in my collection - many of which you've probably seen before, but maybe there's some new ones for you. So let's have 'em!

(The ones marked with an asterisk (*) have or could have some adult content or language - fair warning, folks)

The Flummery Digest - exposing political correctness around the world
Mr. Cranky Rates the Movies*
UNIX HUMOR
Infrequently Asked Questions - a little of everything ;)
The Onion*
Glubco - don't try this at home, folks
Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie Homepage
NEWS of the WEIRD - pretty self-descriptive
For Sale By Mental Patient - just what it sounds like...
SatireWire* - press releases...sort of
Japanese Engrish
The Postmodernism Generator
Peter's Evil Overlord List
Something Awful* - news, reviews, and more, all with a nasty streak ;)
We never landed on the moon!
BSNN.net*
Bonsai Kitten* - okay, there's nothing really bad, but if you have sensitive kids...
Scott Pakin's automatic complaint-letter generator
The Darwin Awards
Daryl Cagle's Professional Cartoonists Index! - editorial cartoons from around the world
Oldmanmurray* - the dark side of computer gaming
Clay's Oddities Wav Page* - a small collection of odd .wav files
Disturbing Search Requests* - definitely not for kids...your neighbors are searching for some weird stuff, folks
The Institute of Good Cheer - an internet classic

"Here's what happened when I took 3 kinds of meat, 19 days, and 1,000,000 maggots, and stuck them in the yard of my unwitting neighbor. Of course, the neighbor eventually found the meat in his yard. Fortunately, I wasn't arrested - so I am free to do it all over again."

What's funny about rotting meat? To see that it's true, go to The Stinkymeat Project and find out!

Home Page by Sam Sloan- From tournament chess to escaping Afgani prison, this guy's done it all (or so he claims).
Shagnasty- Off color, adult humor, but very funny site by a Brit with too much time on his hands.
Bartcrap- This guy tears apart liberal whiner "Bartcop". Very funny!
Weird Links- More stuff here than you read in a week!

From the site you gave: F.W. Lanchester 1868-1946.........Dr. Taoka 1927-1984

They've passed on, that's for sure. Prolific authors, both of them.

The man who knows everything:

The Straight Dope

As he modestly points out, he has been fighting ignorance since 1973...and it's taking longer than he thought.

The Dialectizer translates webpages into redneck, moron, Swedish Chef and jive.

Need autoparts? Go to Kaleco Auto.com for muffler bearings, blinker fluid, high octane radiator fluid, etc.

Sorry about that. I just noticed that you can get the link to SatireWire in the original list at the top of the article.
Well anyway, here's two more sites:

Search for a Compatible Bride or Groom (India)
Simulation: Control the Nuclear Power Plant

I've been lurking for quite a while now. I hope you like the link in my first post, and I hope I'm doing this right! (Please be gentle with me if I mess up.) You need to follow all the inner links to get the full experience, as it contains a step-by-step process. I laughed so hard I cried! http://www.learnlink.emory.edu/peep/surgery.html

It's not quirky but I am a Survivor Fan and enjoy the satire of www.survivorsucks.com It's a lot of fun if you follow the show but not up to the minute updated like the CBS site. I am also looking for a site for guys like me who drive Pink Cadillac El Dorado convertables,I can;t find any friends to share stories of my car,who I affectionately call "Lucille" she is a sweet, sweet automobile ladies and gentlemen.

Wow, they've definitely got a..theory, I suppose. If you like that, here's one lady who thinks that way, and was organized enough to sue over it. ;)

Though not for everybody, I can’t go to Mulletsgalore.com at work. I sit at my desk laughing and crying lying a weirdo everytime I try. It’s the funniest site on the web.

I’m also quite partial to the website for my book - Citizen Clinton.
