i just did this for a tshirt for a certain chain of crab shacks. there are 6 more that are just as stupid (there will be one for each month eventually). i'm embarrassed. i really want to do one with the crab as a leprachaun, though!

This is a product, but if you have kids (or even maybe if you don't) you have to appreciate both its goofiness and utility: Octodog (via Simplebits)

I really tried to keep my mind out of the gutter when checking this out. I couldn't.

Mornin folks. Anything for your Kiran.

Ok, here's my favorite goofy web music video. CRANK UP the volume.

Warning, it's catchy and will get into your head.

I'll drop more fun stuff later.

I keep this on my desk, it always brings a smile to my face. I found it on the back of a comic book in a 25 cent bin at my local used book store.

Corey...that must have been written back in the early 80's while waiting for the next Star Wars. Apparently Yoda was doing a bit of freelance copywriting. Nice find!

That made my day - the toast, the pineapple, and duck. Thanks.

I saw this at the Jewels by my house and had to buy it... and if you can't see it take a closer look. I had a bunch more of crazy stuff, but its at home. Next time.

I printed this on April 1st of this year. It's creepy, but not as creepy as this.

Corey, As can you see above by post of mine. Shamed by you English am I not. Of hilariousness, that is great!

Rhizome.org is in the processing of posting my little brother's grad project. It's one of those uses of technology that baffles, yet fascinates.

Another odd experiment that I read about somewhere but can't find the source of, was an artist who stuck a bunch of those tiny library sized pencils into a tennis ball so it looked like a porcupine. Then he covered the entire inside of a box with white drawing paper. He put the ball in and sent it to a friend. The motion of the package during shipping produced a "chaos" image that was quite interesting.

Rick - I tried emailing this to you, but it bounced back. If you need it in a higher resolution than this, please let me know.

An ergonomic keyboard for pirates.

Rick G’s comment is:

Awesome, thanks.

Hotmail sucks, but my work email is watched with a huge evil eye upstairs. All of you working freelance and wishing you had a 9-to-5 somewhere, you don't know how good ya got it.

On the other hand, this is a big healthcare company, not a "real" shop...

Tan - holy crap, the ergonomic keyboard for pirates is the best thing I have ever seen!

I ripped this from K10K, but it's hilarious...

I got this from a couple of different people today:

1> Go to Google

2> Type "weapons of mass destruction" and click "I'm feeling lucky"

3> Read & enjoy.

Ever see typefaces battle it out?

This is useless cool.

Playing Helvetica, I lost to Arial. I feel I've let the entire typographic community down. Maybe if I could play Akzidenz Grotesk...

Dude, how could you let Arial beat you? Arial?!

Tan’s comment is:

Ok, remember the W+K Honda ad discussion in the Great Divide thread?

Well it was just a matter of time before this. This is pretty hilarious.

I'm so ashamed. What are the ramifications from losing to Arial??

You join FutureBrand in hell.

Or worse: you may only use Arial from now on. Oh the humanity!

I just randomly came across this.

Open microsoft word. Type in Q33NY, one of the flight numbers that hit the WTC, and change the font to Wingdings.

Don't ask me where I get these. Use IE on the Mac, it freaks Safari out.

This freaks ME out. Check out the Bush Wordifier too. Great stuff.
