A very funny Torchwood fanfic (PG, I'd say) that I strongly recommend. (Hell, I recommend anything by this author, and the archives are huge and varied, but this just HAD to be inflic- I mean, shared.)

Warning: Put down the drink FIRST. Seriously.

A knitting pattern... for a dissected frog.
(Certainly the cutest dissected frog I've ever seen, but it's a pretty short yardstick.)

The E-Z Bake Oven Gourmet Cookbook
(Because every small child wants to make Warm Kumquat and Date Sticky Toffee Pudding, and Roasted Quail Breast with Wild Mushrooms and Pomme Anna over, I mean under, a 100 watt light bulb.)

A knitted digestive system!
(It's art! It's a diet aid! No, wait, it's a really funky scarf! Perfect gift for someone who has everything, I suppose. Looks like a link to the pattern is at the end.)

Here's something marvelous:

http://www.shadowunit.org/

Shadow Unit went fully live today, with the first story being by Emma Bull. Excellent stuff, and don't forget to check out the Extras section for all the snippets they've been drawing folks in with!

Just got back from voting after work, and I was pleasantly surprised that I was NOT in the middle of a mad crush of people. I am certainly hoping this is because I beat the people coming in after work (I slipped out a few minutes early) and not because turn out is low. I've never, ever been through a polling place that fast - literally less than 5 minutes, I believe.

On that note, here's a neat site - a project for people to post photos of their polling places. At the moment, the front page shows the Alpharetta High School I just came from, which pleases me unduly.

Enjoy!

If you like Johnathan Coulton, Firefly, Harry Potter, or just really well done, funny fanvideos - try this one.

These seem to be going around, but not necessarily all in the same circles, so for your holiday amusement:

The Nuns Halleluiah Chorus - This just about defies description, but the shtick is that an order of monks who are sworn to silence want to be part of the Christmas concert, in drag. Too, too funny!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrDapAWGBa4&feature=related
Silent Night in ASL - clearly the choir is hearing, since they follow it with a more traditional choral piece, but really nicely done. YouTube seems to have a fair number of videos of people doing christmas carols with ASL, but I really like this one.

I think I may have dented my desk by banging my head on it while laughing. To steal a phrase, this is made of win.

Not the screams of the vegetables, exactly, but an amazing orchestra of vegetable instruments created fresh for each performance. Recorders made of carrots, drums made of turnips and gourds, some stringed instrument I couldn't name made from a carefully dissected head of celery, and endlessly more. You wouldn't think it works, but it does, it does!

There are some fanfiction crossovers that were never meant to be. There are Lovecraft pastiches so brilliantly written and yet so wrong that they strain the sanity of the reader. There are punchlines so strange and yet so strangely right that you find yourself shrieking and smacking your head even as you laugh.

This is one of those stories.

(Perfectly gen, and completely worksafe, at least if you can keep quiet!)

To amuse the foodies, the knitters, and especially those who are both:

Nice work! (Looks like if you click the photos down at the bottom it gives a visual how-to, as well.)

I am working hard to forget my kitchen counter is swarming with ants. I have Taken Steps, but right now I am staying out of there. This is the umpteenth time we've had them here, and we had them only once in the old place. *sigh*

In the meantime, I am seeking diversions, and this looks like a dandy one for anyone who's a comic book fan:

http://www.wowio.com/users/searchresults.asp?nPublisherId=105

Wowio has free downloads of lots of interesting books and comics, and haven't sent me any spam in the month or two that I've been signed up with them. (Or if they have the spam filter caught it - I don't think they did.) The account is free, the variety is good, and they do seem to be fair about making sure they clear things with the authors first and compensate them.

EDIT: The above particular link seems to be with Wowio, but it also associated with the Hero Initiative, which describes itself as "the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterdays' creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It's a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment."

(thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mosellegreen on pointing that part out!)

John Scalzi went to the Creation Museum, and all we got was... well, tons of photos for some hysterically funny LOLCat captions!

88 lines about 44 fangirls!

http://slipjig.livejournal.com/473008.html?view=3144880#t3144880

(the original was by The Nails, if you care to look for it, titled 88 Lines About 44 Women, and is also quite clever, but this just keeps breaking me up!)

And yet another evolutionary twist on the LOLcat:

The perfect summer action movie...

(Yeah, I think I did actually scare the cats laughing at that one!)

Edit: and something shiny from Something Awful to go with!

[livejournal.com profile] sclerotic_rings is a marvelously funny writer, and apparently has a marvelously surreal commute each day on his bike through Dallas (as if that basic concept weren't surreal enough...)

SPOILER FREE

Imagine if the Harry Potter ending had been written by someone else - George Lucas, Mario Puzo, Joss Whedon, George Orwell.... Dr Seuss?

Dr. Seuss:

Harry:

"You tried to kill me with your wand.

You tried to kill me near a pond.

You killed my mommy and my dad,

And that's what made me really mad.

You possessed my main squeeze little Ginny

when I whined my voice turned tinny.

I hate you truly, I really do

I'll kill you now, and that is true."


(Upon hearing this Voldemort drops dead from bad poetry)

I'm sure there will be others out there who think these are as perfect as I do - Heros images with Firefly quotes! Brilliant!
