A Good Laugh Now And Then

I don't spend a lot of time on entertainment sites when surfing the Internet except for IMDB when researching data on movies. I prefer to spend my time reading and writing about weightier topics, which gives me plenty of entertainment all on its own. However, my son and his friends have a favorite website called Homestar Runner, which really has so much fun packed into one spot that I could spend all day there.

The site has a complex series of running cartoon characters, none of which I really understand (I think that one has to have a Star Trek-like devotion to it to really understand it all), but my favorite is StrongBad. If you want a taste of the silly, satirical, and devastating humor, try going to Strongbad's e-mail page. This one in particular skewers radio and is so funny that I had tears rolling down my cheeks. Make sure your sound is turned up. And when Strongbad talks about college radio, just try telling me that it doesn't sound like Al Franken on Air America.

I will be checking my son's college grades very closely now to make sure this site doesn't eat up his "research" time. I'll get to that, um, right after Strongbad's next e-mail ...
