…It’s TGI Friday: You Should Have Seen This?

You Should Have Seen This

Are you ready to catch up with the Internet? Do you want to know every meme and every popular video and every strange picture and every funny joke that has ever been converted to bits and bytes and put online?

Then spend the weekend going through Greg Rutter’s Definitive List of The 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced On The Internet Unless You’re a Loser or Old or Something.

The site is a rather definitive list of just about everything that has ever earned its 15 minutes of Internet fame, and if you make it out alive, you’ll have the collective knowledge of about 99% of the people on the Internet crammed into your brain.

Just be prepared to be amazed, shocked, scared, and a little bit afraid.

…Pac-Txt introduces Pac-Man to Zork?


Pac-Txt is a text based version of Pac-Man that combines the yellow chomper with Zork.

In the author’s own words: “Wth?! Why would anyone invest the time and effort to build such a useless game?”

    Well, I had just got back from a party where the concept of a Pac-Man + Zork hybrid came up as a joke. So, being 2am with a little alcohol in my system, I thought it’d be funny to code it up (as far as I could before collapsing). So, a couple hours later it was looking complete-ish (minus the ghosts’ AIs and graphic assets). The next morning [read: aftenoon] when I woke up, since I have an inability to realize sunk costs, I decided to throw some crappy AI in for the ghosts, put a few graphics on it (courtesy of FastIcon.com) and voila! A domain name purchase or two later, and here we go.

…ThinkGeek is making the 8-bit tie?

8-Bit Tie

ThinkGeek thought they would be clever this April Fools Day and design an “8-bit” tie that draws from the pixilated history of video games for its design. Well, the joke is on them, as numerous geeks and video game heads emailed them and demanded that they go into production. In response to the outcry, ThinkGeek is going to produce this clip on tie (it’s clip on to “preserve the simple, right angle, 8-bit), and sell it to the masses. Weather this was their intention all along, we’ll never know, but if you want to show your geeky side at the office, I can’t think of a better way.

…It’s TGI Friday: Jokes?

For today’s TGI Friday, I want to hear a good joke. It doesn’t have to be new, it doesn’t have to be original, it just has to be good. If you’ve got a good joke, post it in the comments and let the world laugh with you. No good deed goes unrewarded though, so I’m going to choose the best joke that gets submitted and give the publisher a $10 iTunes gift card. That’s right, $10 of free iTunes stuff, just for posting a joke. Need some inspiration? How about this:

    There’s two peanuts walking down the street, and one was a salted.

See how easy that was? 10 seconds of your time could mean 10 dollars of iTunes stuff, so make it good, make it funny, and make my day.

…It’s Things Thursay: Carma Sutra?

Carma Sutra

When I first saw the cover of this book, I though it was a well executed and well Photoshoped joke. Strangely enough though, it’s an actual book, with actual advice for how to get it on in (and possibly on) a car. Insights include the obvious, like avoiding gearshifts and seatbelts, to the more heavily researched, like the best cars (Lincoln Town Car, Volvo V70), and the worst cars (Honda Insight, Ford GT). There are illustrations and advice for over 20 makes and models, from compacts and sedans to hybrids and SUVs, and there are even two included double-page gatefolds for taxicab eroticism and limousine service. If you’ve been looking to rev up your sex life, then maybe this glove-compartment-sized guide is just the ticket. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.
