Who's on First, Shakespeare-Style

Just what the link says. Two guys paying homage to a comedy classic by putting a new spin on it.

The Death of Encyclopedia Brown

A great spoof by The Onion. As a child I was a big fan of Encyclopedia Brown, and in retrospect I was an avid Encyclopedia/Sally shipper, so this thing amused me.

I didn't watch it, youtube disagrees with my non-broadband computer.

Here, you can find Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories in full text, complete with Kipling's original accompanying illustrations.

If you have the inclination to look, you can find many books online now, including most of those of HG Wells.

Ooh! I must look at this soon.

@Pointy and to the floor: Am I the only one who finds Wells' style intolerably stuffy? Admittedly, I only really tried Star-Begotten, but still.

He is a little stuffy, but definitely not intolerably so. I just read The Invisible Man and loved it. It probably depends on the particular work; I do find some of his short stories a little dense, though still great SF.

The Shape of Things to Come is one of my favourite books ever. Not quite enough to knock Dune off the top spot, but top five for sure.

There's more and more turning up on Google Books, all the time, and many university libraries also have many titles in full-text online. If you don't mind downloading them, the Gutenberg Project has a lot, too.

I'm afraid I really haven't read a lot of Wells, so I don't have an opinion on his stuffy quotient. Verne's a fun read still, though.

Ctrl+Alt+Del on humor

I found this particularly interesting "manual" while doing a C.A.D. archive binge. It's a relatively new webcomic for me, and quite entertaining, if I must say.

A great Revolution joke

So anyway, Ctrl+Alt+Del is now officially in my list of Ten Favorite Webcomics, and I'm doing an archive binge. I couldn't help but be amused at this subtle jab at the Nintendo Revolution.

The Original Mr. Owl Tootsie Pop Commercial
The Tootsie Pop Commercial in 3D

The first link is the full one-minute version of the classic Tootsie Pop commercial, which is one of the longest-lasting commercials still on the air (if you count the shortened thirty-second version to be the same thing). The second link is the thirty-second version rendered in 3D.

Of course, it still amuses me that people actually attempt to calculate the number of licks, mainly because a definitive answer is impossible given the variables involved.

And because I believe that humor should come first in this forum, here's an Order of the Stick comic that makes fun of this phenomenon.

A Munchkin Coroner?

So my newest webcomic addiction is Chesire Crossing, the crossdimensional adventures of Mary Poppins, Alice Liddell, Wendy Darling, and Dorothy Gale. I'm not making this up (go Dave Barry!). This particular comic had an exchange that gave me the greatest guffaw I've had in recent memory:

Mary Poppins on Munchkin Land: Is it a safe place for us to go?
Dorothy Gale: Well, there's only a hundred or so of them, but they have a full-time coroner, so you tell me.

Ha ha! "As coroner, I vouch for her. I thoroughly examined her. And not only is she MERELY dead, she's really most SINCERELY dead!"

The Book of Ratings on Pop Flavors

This may sound like a PNQ, but for me it's neither Persistent nor Niggling. Besides, I wanted to put another plug in for The Book of Ratings.

In any event this page suggests that root beer tastes like toothpaste. Huh?

A crossover MST

Since this is one of those rare fanfics that even >I< can't wrap my brain around, I thought I'd inflict it on you guys. I'm so evil.

That made no sense at all to me until I looked it up. Now I hate you both.
