Happy Birthday to etherealflaim!  
etherealflaim, I hope you're having a great birthday, wherever you are. I don't think we've seen you around since moving back for school! Hope you're back online soon.

Today I have humor to share, and it is of the random in a bigger way than usual.

First, thanks to thelana, there is 9 Words That Don't Mean What You Think. I apologize for all the boobies on this one-- don't know why someone thought THAT was necessary. But the writing is great, and the "Dick Factor" (and corresponding celebrity) for each of the words is funny.

Also from that same site, The 9 Most Devastating Insults From Around the World. These are of course often crude and sexist, but the presentation ("Who Said That?" and "Dear God Why?") is fantastic, and you HAVE to read the entry for Bulgaria (Quote: Most of the good ones read like Tourette's syndrome Mad Libs). \o/

For a different kind of humor, there is this compilation of 404- File Not Found. The first entry is one of my favorites, in "h4x0r" language. Most of the best entries are marked as "dialect" or "slang" (Weers yon page geet to? T'int 'ere!), and then of course there's the "pirate" entry. :D Definitely worth a peek.

And lastly... I hope this dog is playing, because otherwise he's clearly mentally ill: Don't Touch My Bone. :0

Because they wanted to provide eye candy for everyone, naturally, and "everyone" means "men." Yay patriarchy yay.

Yes, which is incredibly annoying. As if women don't enjoy that kind of humor too.

And yet, the OTHER entries do NOT have the boobies and such. That's why it's puzzling-- why choose that one to put the sexist tilt on? :(

I've seen that dog video. I really just thought he was sorta psycho, but now, erm, my cat occasionally does this same thing. Attacks her own hind leg. Well, first she does a somersault, then the leg thing.

I kinda just got nothing.

My sister sent it to me via email, and I seriously thought that dog was psycho too. And scary.

It never occurred to me that he might be playing, though someone suggested that at youtube.

Years ago, we were working outside at the old house, and my husband said, "What's all that noise?" And I said, "It's the cat. She's running around the yard scaring herself, because she doesn't have anything better to do."

And she was. :0

I am quite the 404 fan.

Hee! Aren't those fun?

Especially if you read some of the Creole or other ones out loud, you can hear what they're actually saying. :D
