- The Curative Power Of The Rickroll:
Suggested dessert course: I Rick Roll My Senior English Class – I love the awkwardness as the shooter is the only one in the entire room laughing, but he lets the Rick clip go on and on. Even his “Rick Roll. I Had To Do It.” finishing slide gets nothing but stone-faced silence.
[The Rick Roll defined]
- Home Brew DSLR Lens – Got duct tape, an eyeglass lens, a DSLR body and a Planters Nuts can? Bing bong, you got a lens. Hoping to see more appear in the 2-photo “Homemade Lenses” Flickr Set.
- Underwear Without Suspension – I was going to pass on this when I saw it in this morning’s Daily Candy, but Melanie’s commentary adds an extra layer of heh and brings it up to spec:
either wear panties or don’t, girls
it shouldn’t be this complicated
i saw that earlier and it wasn’t nearly as funny without the mel take
i mean, i’m all for innovation in fashion and otherwise, but this preoccupation with how your crotch is concealed/revealed is ridiculous
who is this for? gals who think it’s slutty to go commando
yeah, really classy to stick a pad on your business
- Corporate Heh Honorable Mention – Sony’s games division gets a heh for their 2008 Game Developers Conference shirts that tease fans waiting for a Playstation3 feature addition called “in-game XMB”. Commenter DaiMacculate sort of stole the show on the Kotaku write-up, however, with this nerdiest of nerd riffs, complete with :P emoticon “…Last thing I want to do is deal with the antiquated vocalizations of the carbon units inside the shirts…”
- Silly MySpace – The MySpace team loves to crow about how their design ethos is that users should be allowed to do whatever they want in MySpace land. Scoble recently wrote: “…MySpace has a philosophy. One that says that users should be free to express themselves in pretty much whatever way they want. If that means yellow text on a blinking purple background, so be it.” This Eric Rice heh is a tiny example of how their oft-clunky UI can get in the way of all that philosophizing.
- Puppywar – Puppies face off in a hot-or-not style battle for cuteness supremacy.
- Jack Horkheimer’s Greatest Hits – Another in the tradition of “I’m not really sure what it is, but I like it.”
