Some funny stuff for your Thursday!

3/02/2005

Well it’s almost the weekend and I haven’t done a barrel o’ monkeys post in a while, so have a laugh on me.

1. I Ate iPod Shuffle from Scott David Herman at erasing.org. Yes it’s true, Apple users are so dumb they need to be warned not to eat their products! *Mitch hides his iPod*

2. Martian ‘planetary parks’ proposed From CNN.com. I guess the scientist wanted to get in before Greenpeace.

3. 4 Kidz from OBJECTIVE. I never mock religion. I believe each person has their right to choose what they do or don’t believe in. But this site just goes way too far. It goes so far that upon showing my friend Jason (who is a strong Christian) it left him as appauled as it did me. Not so much funny as disturbing, but still worth a look.

More Fun Than a Barrel O’ Monkeys V4.012

23/01/2004

Oohhhhhhh. (devilish laugh). It’s that time again, baby! It’s Friday Report time!

Well in my last report, I said that this report (and future reports) would be a little hard to write. It’s never easy to find new and interesting stuff, but I have tried my best.

Guinness World Records – Personally I think the best way to view this site, as with any records site, is to look for the “I can’t believe someone is THAT bored that they would do THAT just to get a world record” records. Those ones are hilarious!

Oxymoron List – ‘Nuff said, really. Everyone loves a good oxymoron. Unless you don’t know what an oxymoron is, then you are almost totally dumb.

Create Bands dot Com – This is really cool for those times when you have 5 minutes to kill.

Dancing Bush – Pretty Funny, make ol’ Gee Dubblya dance around like a goose. Always humorous.

Maximum Exposure – Watch real life videos of accidents, stupid stunts, motorcycle jumps, explosions, skateboarding, car crashes, animal bites, rescues, sky dives, police chases, bungee jumps, *INSERT DEEP BREATH SOUND* extreme sports, fights, and more…

Virtual Bubble Wrap – This is especially useful for when you are moving house and your annoying sister/girlfriend won’t stop popping the bubble wrap on you. I know thats a sexist comment, but it really does seem to me that girls like to pop the bubble wrap more than guys.

Lemonade Game – Make your own online lemonade stand and see how much lemonade you can sell. Based on the weather forcast for each day, you decide how much to charge per cup and how much inventory to buy.

Well that’s more than enough to last you all until next Friday. Until then, keep smiling and don’t take life too seriously.

More Fun Than a Barrel O’ Monkeys V4.011

16/01/2004

It is disgraceful how long it has been since I’ve written a Friday Report. Today I decided to get back into the barrel of monkeys and find some cool stuff on the net and share it. I spend, at least, a few hours a day surfing the net, so there is really no excuse for me not to post a few interesting sites every week. So without any further ado, I give you; More Fun Than a Barrel O’ Monkeys V4.011…

Rubik’s Online – This page rawks! m/ Personally I am huge on puzzles, not those crappy ones where you make a picture of a dolphin or something like that, I am talking about real puzzles, like the Rubik’s Cube. If you haven’t got a Rubik’s Cube, go get one!

Kill Frog, wow I’m really new to this one, but the cartoons are really funny. Further exploration of this site is warrented.

How To Write Unmaintainable Code – This is especially relevant to any coders/hackers who read my weblog. This page is absolutely hilarious!

404 Research Lab – This site is full of funny 404 messages from all over the web. Definitely worth a look.

Maddox: The Best Page in the Universe – This guy is truly funny. The website is somewhat a weblog, but it is made up of Maddox just really taking the p**s out of anything he chooses. It is a really funny site, but I have to warn that some people might find him a little offensive. That said; read on!

The Terminator – This web page is very simple. Type in the name of any actor/actress who has been in a feature film and they will be related to Arnold Schwarzenegger by “degrees of separation”. Basically, I sat at the computer for hours and only managed to get 3 degrees of separation. If you get one higher I’d love to know about it.

Megatokyo – This web comic is very similar to Ctrl-Alt-Del which I posted about not so long ago in V3.0 but I think it’s really good. I bought the Kimiko Blanket from Thinkgeek about twelve months ago and it is so nice!

Drew Curtis’ Fark – Go there. ‘Nuff said!

Well that about wraps it up. I think that the next Friday Report will be very hard to write; I have almost tapped all of my favourite sites, so from now on I am really going to have to do some searching. Rock on kiddies! m/

More fun then a Barrel o’ Monkeys v3.0

17/10/2003

This weeks Friday Report is going to be a bit of a comic fest. In recent times many friends of mine have pointed me to various online comics and the likes, so I figure why not give the masses (my two regular readers and you, anonymous swine) what they have been asking for. Just a warning; this is a slightly longer than normal entry so I won’t be displaying the entire entry on the main page.

More fun then a Barrel o’ Monkeys v2.0

19/09/2003

Welcome to the second Friday Report, if you read the last one and visited the sites I recommended you will have had a laugh, but I am sure by now you are dying to see some more. Well since last time there has been a new Strong Bad email, or should I say, a new �teen girl squad� by Strong Bad. It�s a good laugh and I highly recommend checking for new Strong Bad emails every Monday. But we have been there, seen that, had those laughs and frankly it�s time for more fun I think.

This is a single webpage with a very interesting clip in it, which if you don�t laugh at there is something wrong with you. Maybe you should try reactivating your emotion chip and watching it a second time. Have a look an enjoy! :-)

Okay, this is more of a boredom buster than a funny website, but it�s good all the same. It uses some sort of database to connect Arnold Schwarzenegger to other actors though degrees of separation. My brother and I tried every actor we could think of, even the ones with crap careers and so forth and basically found out everyone has an �Arnie Number�. Enjoy! :-)

This is another online comic very similar to Ctrl-Alt-Del, but a little more sarcastic. I am a Queen of Wands newbie, but my good friend Jason swears by it, so we are going to trust him and have a look.

Some people find swearing funny. Although I try not to swear to much and be a good little boy I do find it highly ammusing when it is in Arabic. I think you should go here and learn to swear in other languages. Some of the insults other countries use is just hilarious! I think so anyway.

If you have never heard of stick death then you are missing out. More importantly I happen to think that this is one of the funniest stick death animations I have ever seen. Basically stick death is just animations of little stick figures killing each other in bizarre ways. I suggest having a look at stickdeath.com and the afore mentioned cartoon! Enjoy!

Well I think that is enough without over loading your humour chip, go laugh and have fun. Next week I am taking requests for a theme so if you wish to send me an email, do so using the contact link and I will get back to you!

More fun then a Barrel o’ Monkeys v1.0

12/09/2003

Welcome to my first Friday Report, “More fun then a Barrel o’ Monkeys”. Why did I choose this title? Well because Barrel o’ Monkeys are hell fun, for one, and two; I was going to call it “More fun then a Fun-Sized Mars Bar” but we have already established how lame those things are.

So what is the Friday Report?
My FR is where I will list some fun websites, fun movies, fun snacks and anything else fun I might find including jokes and things. Every friday I will make a report about fun stuff to cheer up the readers and myself. My postings won’t always be happy, just as my life won’t always be happy, so I will spend at least one day every week posting some fun stuff to cheer everyone up.

Well this is my first post and for the next 3 or 4 weeks I will probably just split them up with all my favorite websites from the past years. I have a lot so I won’t put them all into one post.

Okay, anyone who knows me will have heard me mention this one. Homestar Runner is, in my opinion, one of the funniest websites on the Internet. It�s hard to say what sort of age-group it is designed for, but it is hilarious! Every Monday there is a new Strongbad Email, in which Strongbad answers an email. He is supposed to be a cool guy, but after a few emails you realize he is a little bit lame, but funny all the same. There are a heap of cartoons, character profiles, all sorts of funny stuff. If you visit, give it a chance it might not be for you at first but it will definitely grow on you. Just so you don�t miss out, here are some of my favorites:

Control Alt Delete is one heck of a hilarious comic. Basically to get the basic idea of this one, just go to the character profiles page and read. I haven�t been reading this one for very long, but I think it�s pretty funny.

Well this blog entry is already longer than I wanted it to be. For now, you will just have to enjoy those two websites. If you have a suggestion for the next Friday Report, feel free to contact me.
