It's Spring, Lighten Up

Web sites that trigger the giggling reflex

| March 31, 2005

Trawling the Internet for news can be a depressing affair. In an effort to honor the spirit of a burgeoning spring, Utne offers the following sites to be surfed for some much needed comic relief.

www.japander.com
Remember the commercial that an exasperated Bill Murray fumbled through during Lost in Translation? Imagine a trove of such moments, with a bevy of Hollywood stars to choose from.

www.netdisaster.com
Wreak havoc upon the Web sites you scorn with this harmless but gratifying tool, which came to Utne accompanied by the pitch line, 'Nuking the Fox News homepage is really satisfying.' We concur.

www.fark.com
News of the weird with headlines and links conveniently labeled with tags like 'asinine,' 'spiffy,' and 'dumbass.'



www.gizoogle.com
Google with a twiznist.

www.bobanddavid.com
If those Mr. Show DVDs just don't scratch that itch anymore, bobanddavid.com should do the trick.
