Internet humor

I absolutely adore Internet humor. OK, let me qualify that. The heartwarming cutesy ones interspersed with those little cartoon animals/hearts/angels/babies about how wonderful it is to be a mom getting older with your bestest gal pals... not so much. And as a MAWF* with a lot of MAWF friends, I get a lot of those. Love ya, sistahs, but puh-leez....

But seriously, consider for just a moment the absolute treasure trove of humor we now have at our fingertips. Things we might never have seen or heard if it weren't for this miraculous WWW-thingy. Thank you, Al Gore.

YouTube? The best ev-er! Where else can you find scenes from Monty Python's Holy Grail done entirely in Legos? Not to mention Terry Tate, Office Linebacker. C'mon people, I don't care who you are, that's some funny shit.

And then there's the ubiquitous email forward. It's a slippery slope. I mean, geez, you get on just one casual acquaintance's fwd list and you could be facing a never-ending stream of crrrrrrap. I know, I know. You're thinking, like, There's got to be a pony in here somewhere, right? And I'm saying, like, No, Virginia, sometimes the pony dies and you're left with piles of shit. Not to mention that whole dead pony thing.**

But everyone once in awhile, if you pick your friends properly, you get rewarded with the occasional beauteous nugget in your Inbox.
Ed. Note: BTW, picking your friends is much, much different and generally more hygienic than picking your friend's. If you don't understand the distinction, look here.

I figured this topic was well worth its own category. So when I absolutely can't think of a single thing to write about, I'll drop one of those rare gleaming treasures on you. I hoard them like a dragon hoards gems. My stash is large enough to keep us entertained for quite awhile.

**Sorry, sometimes my inside voices come out. I'm working on it, really.
