I ordered a t-shirt with this cartoon on it today…

from http://xkcd.com/c149.html, because I’m a major geek, and it will make all my geek friends jealous. He’s got a lot of rather funny cartoons there. I also think these are funny: nachos, skateboards, math test, certripetal force, riemann-zeta, and this one. Or, at least they’ll get it. Most folks will have no idea why it’s funny.

Yatta Yatta!

Because I came across it again, I just want to say that this song / video and the flash animation that got done to the song, are pretty fricking funny.  I’d love to say that I’m clever enough to do this kind of thing ( the flash video, or even the original video ), but I don’t think I am.  I can sit in front of a camera and yammer on about whatever comes into my mind, occasionally being humorous, but I don’t think I could be this wacky.
