in a notion ocean, daddy tropical storm, little piece of bargain home, please don't get caught, alright!

I know you, O dedicated Ashcan Rantings readers.
Your first stop on the Internet? Right here. A new post? You're all over it: you peruse (by the original definition) it three times, check out all the links, save the pictures, look up the title on Google (which you noticed for about a year now is always song lyrics), leave what you hope is a really witty comment (it isn't) and then continually check up to make sure no one comments anything wittier than you afterwards.
Yeah, I can read you like a book. I'm not saying I'm not flattered. It warms my heart (but only figuratively) to see your kind words. And at the same time, I'm not saying you're the reason I get up in the morning (the reason I get up in the morning is to caress my Eddie Hazel album and remind it that it too is loved), but my life would be a fraction less really-fuckin-rad without you.


That being said, I feel it is my duty as your guru to hip you to another amazing website.

Sup, cracked.com.
Cracked is a comedy website and....well, I won't beat around the proverbial bush...it's genius. There are many aspects to its brilliance:

There's the fantastic videos by the incomparable Michael Swaim.



6 Viral Videos that Qualify as Child Abuse

There are the interactive Craptions: "Timmy failed the 'Pick Which Tank The Fish Is In' test, confirming his parents worst fears that he was, in fact, a fucking idiot."

But, best of all, there are the lists. If you've been faithfully reading my blog (and I know you have), you'll know that I'm something of a fan of lists. From the 5 Celebrity Wikipedia Entries They Clearly Wrote Themselves to the 10 Most Sexually Unappealing Craigslist Postings, I think I've learned more from cracked.com than I have from 12 or so years of schooling, and been more entertained than I have from eighteen billions episodes of Simpsons (and that's not to say I don't find the Simpsons amusing, because I do, it's more of a testament to the importance of cracked.com in my life)

Let's please take a moment to appreciate the epic-ness of how run-on that sentence really was.

Perhaps my favourite of all of cracked.com's articles is the 11 Most Unintentionally Gay Rap Lyrics Ever. A petit sample to whet your appetite:

The Lyric:
"I get paid to rip, step aside, Im'ma blow you." ("Act Like You Want It" by Black Moon)
What He's Probably Saying:
"I get paid to be awesome, now get out of my way before I shoot you."
What We Like To Think He's Saying:
"Relax, I do this for a living, move a little to the left so I can give you oral sex."


The Lyric:
"Now, I never had my dick sucked by a man befo', but you gone be the first, you little trick-ass ho." ("Dollaz + Sense" by DJ Quik)
What He's Probably Saying:
"I'm so much of a badass, you're basically a woman in my presence, so I'm gonna make you blow me."
What We Like To Think He's Saying:
"I've never done this before, you know, let a guy put my junk in his mouth. This is my first time. You little trick-ass ho."


Yeah, there's more where that came from. And you know what? It's updated daily so there's pretty much humour coming atcha faster than you can giggle at it. I know you like that.
So what are you wating for?? In case you couldn't figure out the many links above, I'll make it extra big and simple for ya.

I love cracked so hard! I'm afraid you've discovered another one of my online haunts that I frequently use as a resource for my 'web time waster posts'

I expect you to keep quiet when you see link after link pointed towards cracked hilarious, hallowed halls.

Cate said...

"leave what you hope is a really witty comment (it isn't)" - Well you're mean Molly ^^

20 Baby Products great for Traumatizing infants - a baby in a hamburger, that really "cracked" me up - ohh aren't I witty?

xoxo,
Micaela

Aisha said...

Gotta check that site now!

twenty.seven.cents said...

lol. The fruits were quite tasty, I must admit. Personally, humor-wise, I can't go past funny cats. They get me every time with either a 'awww' or 'hahahaha'. :)

Sister Libby said...

All I think of saying when I read your comment (the life goals one) was "Girrrrl, you so wise!" So yeah, I think I know what I want to do. It's sort of a relief, but I've been quite used to being the no goals drifter that I'm sort of bummed to have to actually persue something. Does that make any sense? Meh...I'll probably end up like, writing travel brochures, but hey maybe that will kick off the tortured part of my life.

THANK YOU for showing this site, I have never laughed so much in my entire time at the internet heh. xxx /A.
