SitePoint Auctions: An Excellent Source of Unintentional Web Humor

I found this thread overall fairly hilarious, but I’ll excerpt the best bits for you:

Description Includes:

Established blog with prime keywords that appear on major search engines. First page of Google, Yahoo and MSN for the keyword make money and how to make money.”

I was skeptical, checked, and he’s not on there … others were too, criticized him, and he responded:

I am still on #1 page on Yahoo, MSN and Google. If you don’t see it, maybe you just need to look for the word Make$ Money$

Someone then responded to him:

Very good point. I am on page one on google for the term:


The Most Viewed Video Ever on YouTube

You know, I’m not sure what I would have guessed if someone had asked me what I thought the most viewed video ever on YouTube was going to be. However, this certainly wouldn’t have been it. The Evolution of Dance is funny, yes, but … I’m not sure if I would have stuck it out long enough to be entertained if I hadn’t known ahead of time it was the most watched thing on YouTube, ever:

I Sux, You Sux, All Sux dot Com!

What’s new, what’s new … well, OneMansBlog is getting close to John’s goal of 1,000 subscribers. The other John is still going strong an I may be able to beg, borrow or steal some of his mad design skillz. You gotta admire Tamar for sticking to her guns and sticking it to the man. Her posts are truly worth of this site, but I guess that’s not saying much :P

I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks the Sarah Silverman Show is just plain great. The industrious Mu has created a cool resource for Stumblers. I’ve become completely addicted to TreeHugger when I’m not on WebUrbanist. If you’re a blogger and you haven’t signed up for Romlet and/or Peopleized I’m telling you: you’re missing out!

I’ve been debating writing an intro-to-Digg article for Diggn00bs pointing out some of the veteran Diggers by ‘niche’ … think that could be an interesting read, but I’m sure to miss (an therefore piss off) some Digger or another. I’ve also been toying with writing a post about how this is the most important page on Believe it or not, that’s where the big decisions are made, which I’ll be sure to explain at some point ;) Speaking of Digg, Verge and I got a rather entertaining mention on TheDrillDown recently, though we still plan to hijack the show entirely soon.

Now for some strict entertainment. Here are some beautiful time lapse photographs and videos which should go niceley with a side of other cool art in motion. You can always count on the Best of Craiglist to provide things like the survival of the fittest M&Ms, just like you can always count on religious fanatics to barricade themselves in caves until the world ends. However, more than all of the above, you can rely on WallStreetFighter to provide you with a dose of crass offbeat humor.

Desperate for Cash? At Least You’re Not These Guys!

Man … over at DigitalPoint people are clamoring over fifty cents. How freaking weird is that? Here’s the link … it’s pretty hilarious but kind of sad. At the other extreme, the Digg effect supposedly cost DigitalPoint $100,000 … I find that rather hard to believe.

Crackheads on Halloween – No, For Real!

OK, so, while my housemates went out Christmas caroling as zombies (fairly hilarious!) I stayed at home to take care of some stuff and hand out candy. Well, exactly one person came to the door while I was home. Yes, as the headline suggests, it was a crackhead. A young guy in his early twenties wearing dark pants and a hoody (with the hood up) came up with a nondescript paper grocery bag. He said “trick or sweet” which made, of course, no sense. I was a little worried to turn my back on the door and grab the bag of Jolly Ranchers but I figured if I was going to die it might as well be under strange circumstances. Anyway, I threw in a handful, fairly speachless, and bid him a good evening. I wonder how many other people in the neighborhood he confused and entertained.
