…Bowser’s minions are not happy?

Bowser\'s Minions

Any Super Mario fan will definitely appreciate the humor in Bowser’s Minions.

For me, the sounds and the long lost characters brought back flashbacks of childhood gaming, and I loved the idea of Mario’s enemies grouping together and revolting against the restrictions placed upon them by Bowser/Nintendo to keep the game playable.

Definitely another CollegeHumor classic.

…It’s TGI Friday: Server Quest?

Server Quest

Though Server Quest is a bit on the tech heavy side, it’s still a great game that brings back fond memories of the early ‘90s gaming era.

Created to promote Microsoft’s TechNet, Server Quest puts you in charge of Matt Berg, an IT Guy in search of the IT Girl of his dreams.

When he finds her (Alicia Thornber) he must woo her with his vast amount of IT knowledge.

Mini-games include Packet Invaders and Office Chaos, and there’s a full serving of IT humor, so it’s a great diversion for actual IT guys, though it may be over the heads of anyone who doesn’t have a degree in computer science.

Are you ready to save the IT day?

…Ed Janssen is a Charming Man?

Knuckle SandwichEd Janssen is This Charming Man, and creates jewelry pieces that “tend to be quite iconic, reflecting the everyday through a lens of humor that gives his pieces personalities of their own.”

His “knuckle sandwich” necklace is definitely his most popular piece, and for good reason, as the brass knuckles between two pieces of bread has taken on a cult status for its good looks and subtle charm.

Who’s hungry?

Crestock Photoshop Contest Round One

For each round, Crestock will supply a set of source photos from their image library. Your entry must be based on one or several of those photos, though you can do with them what you like. The main requirement is that one or more of the source images can be recognized as a central part of your design. Then, there’s voting (40% public, 60% judges) and a winner is announced.

Want some help?

    “The winning entry will have incredible visual impact and exhibit fantastic creativity and technical skill, perhaps also with a twist of humor. Amaze us or make us laugh – or both. It’s up to you and your skills, creativity and imagination, but whatever you do, don’t miss out on the action!”

Sounds like good advice to me.
