Some stuff on our daily reads

Yesterday at Ukulele Hunt, Al Wood opened a contest to award the title of best internet ukulele video of 2009.  Each commenter is entitled to nominate five videos.  My five nominees are:  Ukulele Loki and the Gadabout Orchestra, “Prague:1998″; Poopy Lungstuffing, “Dolly Got a Haircut”; Ukulelezo, “When I Grow Up I’m Gonna Wear a Bikini”; Gensblue, “All That Ukulele Xmas”; and Ken Middleton, “Time After Time.”  I can’t resist embedding Poopy’s haunting original:

Meanwhile, Language Log featured a link to one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen on the web, “This is the title of a typical incendiary blog post” by Chris Clarke.  Each sentence starts with the words “This sentence” and describes what sort of sentence you would find in that position in a typical incendiary blog post.  Trust me, it’s funnier than that description makes it sound.

Eight days ago, Josh Fruhlinger, “The Comics Curmudgeon,” posted something that I’m still snickering about.  He gave us this “Herb and Jamaal” strip:

 

And added this comment:

Herb seems to have been possessed by an extremely mellow demon, which has compelled him to casually pull the Bible off the shelf and spit on it. The holy book responds to this assault by releasing thick clouds of acrid smoke. Who will win this low-stakes battle for Herb’s immortal soul?
