In order to make myself feel better about my life, I usually say "Oh well, things aren't THAT bad, there are people in the burn ward, for crying out loud." Unfortunately, I always have to descend all the way down to the friggin burn ward to convince myself I'm lucky.
The Burn Ward Comic Strip

Stick Figure Death Theatre
More violence in the media, but I watch for the acting mostly.

Daily Demented Comics
I'll never read the Sunday funnies again.

The Boring Home Page
Honesty counts for a lot, in my book.

The Onion
Online newspaper that is consistantly smart and funny.

If I had thought of this site, I would feel a sense of accomplishment that would satisfy me the rest of my life.

John Fanzine
A funky and fun site that leaves most others of its ilk in the shade.

David Letterman's Top Ten Lists
Oddly enough, some people don't like Letterman, but everybody likes the top ten.

Universal Problem Solver
Just follow the directions and everything will be fine.

A village so isolated that it is located a short way from the outskirts of itself

Stupid Web Site
I wish I would have thought of having a site like this.

T-Shirt Hell
If you can wear one of these shirts to work,
then I bet I can guess what tax braket you're in.

The Butt Page
For those of us who carry all of our tension in our asses,
this is not necessarily funny, but it's at least interesting.

Comedy Central Online
TV listings and a lot more.


These are some really funny articles and lists that have celebrated wide circulation via internet e-mail (just in case any of you hacks are thinking about using them in your act). Some of these you may have seen before, and some you may not have. I'd love to take credit for writing any one of them, but I can't. Be sure to check out Wife 1.0, as well as the Existential Cookbook.

The Last 10 Things The Other Sex Would Ever Say
Well, they may say them, but not to each other.

Signs You Are Getting Old
Another sign would be if these aren't that funny to you.

Bumper Stickers
Of the "Visualize Whirrled Peas" variety.

Newspaper Headlines
These were probably taken from the Leno Show.

Wife 1.0
Women Are From Adobe, Men Are From Corel

Unlikely Children's Books
My father would have recommended most of these.

Deep Thoughts
I think these are from Saturday Night Live

Husband 1.0
...and now one FOR the ladies.

One Liners
I recognize a lot of these from comic's acts.

A Healthy Level of Insanity in the Workplace
....As if I know anything about a workplace.

Scientific Translations
C'mon, let's face it, everybody's faking it.

The Cynic's Dictionary
A reference book for us common, ordinary, jaded, hardened folk.

Courtroom Bloopers
I believe all of these were said by Marsha Clark.

Darwin Award
I heard this story years ago, and for some reason, always believed it.

If Microsoft Headquarters Were In Alabama
Shouldn't there be a politically correct version of this for San Francisco...or Seattle.

Jean-Paul Sartre Cookbook
Finally, one that has a writing credit attached to it!
