In a fit of madness, I've been tagging all my lj posts, and I found that the link for a silly cat photo site had been moved due to bandwidth overload. Here it is.

A collection of cats sleeping in funny poisitions with comic captions.

The cats here just curl up to sleep. I suspect that they're abnormally normal.

Over at Making Light, Teresa has started a joke thread.

Here's her joke )



FranW's joke )



And a downright charming one from Julia )

If you go to the Making Light thread, you'll find that there's also a discussion of iced tea and an explanation of digestive biscuits, and I have no doubt that more jokes will be added.

[livejournal.com profile] laughingfox's gaming group is interested in Cthulhu humor, so I'm passing on some good stuff I've seen recently.

[livejournal.com profile] bradhicks has about the importance of not engaging in sex with shoggoths and a follow-up.

And here's a much quoted account of what can drive a Miskatonic professor over the edge.

I recently read something about the Harry Potter books being Lovecraftian, with a description of a Lovecraft character who has a disquieting resemblance to Snape and a suggestion that the house elves are really Deep Ones. Does anyone have enough (in)sanity left to remember where it was? I'm pretty sure I saw it on LJ.

And if anyone has other Lovecraft humor to recommend, bring it on.

It turns out that Cthuugle is still the very handy Lovecraft et al. search engine--when I mispelled it as cthoogle, I was redirected to a porn site, and googling established that cthoogle is a common word on such sites. Something very odd is going on, and I hope it's not shoggoth sex.

If only we could get to the farce version while skipping the tragedy.....

Suppose that someone is hiding Osama bin Laden so he can be displayed just before the election. This sort of thing is an invitation to screwball comedy since there are probably three or four groups that would like to have bin Laden and probably half a dozen doubles available.

Is anyone interested in joining me at the Philadelphia Quilt Extravaganza? on September 19th? (The show runs from the 16th to the 19th, but I'm booked on the 18th, and I'm assuming that few people will be available on the weekdays.)

I've been there before, and there'll be a huge exhibit of ambitious but usable quilts (I feel that art quilts are unclear on the concept), merchants (more kinds of pretty cotton than you can imagine, odd stuff like working miniature sewing machines suitable for travellers, and books), a contest to see who can do the coolest project with an arbitrary quilting fabric, and classes.

Let me know if you're interested and when you'd be likely to show up, and if I could possibly get a ride with you from South Philly.

I tend to look for humorous books about quilting--there isn't much, and I would dearly love to see a book of funny quilts, but I recommend How Not to Make a Prize-Winning Quilt by Ami Simms--it's a description of what it's like to make quilts when you just want to *quilt* and not fuss with things like making sure that the seam allowance on your sewing machine is exactly the right size. The bathroom quilt with the shark's fin in the bathtub is a classic.

In rec.arts.sf.written, William Hyde, a climatologist, said he'd only see the movie for $100, and Dreamer, a Happy Nonsense Discordian, arranged for an auction to make it happen.

Here's the run-up to the event:

Here's the review.

"In short, This movie is to climate science as Frankenstein is to heart transplant surgery."

Explanation of rec.arts.sf.written and newsgroups )

A friend in Baghdad sent me this. It is to laugh, it is to weep.


Why Did the Chicken cross the Road?

Coalition Provisional Authority:

The fact that the Iraqi chicken crossed the road affirmatively demonstrates that decision-making authority has been transferred to the chicken well in advance of the scheduled June 30th transition of power. From now on the chicken is responsible for its own decisions.

Halliburton:

We were asked to help the chicken cross the road. Given the inherent risk of road crossing and the rarity of chickens, this operation will only cost the US government $326,004.


Eight more chickens )
