Silly Site o' the Day

It's an off-week for late night shows and other programs we normally take in, but there's always the web, and here's John Oliver's contribution to ease the doldrums:

Silly Site o' the Day

Because I love him just so darn much, this one's for Robin:



I really hope CRS doesn't disappear as coming generations are puzzled by older references. I just hope the kids make more of their own.

Silly Site o' the Day

Whatever else Donald Trump is (and words like "xenophobic, opportunistic a-hole" come to mind),he's certainly a meme generator. Here's the Trump Generator (via BoingBoing) and the Twitter hashtag #TrumpBible (via Susie Madrak).

Sillly Site o' the Day

Still caught up on blog reading; can actual non-silly-site posts be far behind? Probably. In the meantime, I highly recommend the Twitter feed of Sarcastic Rover, tweeting at us all the way from the Red Planet, or so Lance Mannion says.

Silly Site o' the Day

I've finally caught up with my blog reading! I should rejoice, this only happens twice a year or so. :) Anyway, in celebration, and because Mom thinks my silly sites are getting weirder and weirder, here's the official trailer for Banksy's Dismaland:

This is the only way you can get me to watch any of the Republican candidates' debate:



Any way you look at it you lose... but at least this way it's amusing. Via Laughing Squid.

Robin's renewed British passport has arrived! Now if we ever get the money we can go to New Zealand:

Silly Site o' the Day

We cleared out most of our DVR'ed half hours, just in time to see most of those series end their seasons. Maybe they're all going to Disney World with Tiny Hamster:

Silly Site o' the Day

Are we home yet? Whew! What a weird day. Turned out my car couldn't pass inspection until a $300+ repair had been performed, which took approximately twice the two hours promised. There went my morning and then some. Thank goodness Robin was there for much of it. Then we went to lunch and shopped, and I'm sure more weirdness ensued but I just want to block it all out. The important thing is, we're home. And I didn't need my insurance for anything, even though I appreciate their current crop of YouTube ads as compiled by Laughing Squid. Seriously, not going out again for the rest of the weekend.
