The Legacy of Homestar Runner



Before social media, before iPhones, before YouTube, even, there was Homestar Runner. It was goofy and subversive, funny and innovative. The experimental Flash animation didn't need any promotion or search engine optimization because it was shared granularly. If that sounds like jargon to you, what it means is that everyone liked Homestar Runner, so people turned their friends and acquaintances onto it. This video takes a look at how Homestar, Strong Bad, and the other characters took over the early internet to the delight of all who were desperate to find anything worth the effort of logging onto the web. It succeeded because it was fun.

The cartoon survived the demise of Flash, and it's still there, even though the videos are now hosted by YouTube. (via Digg)


Elephant Stew



I've seen this in several cookbooks, going back decades. But as Randall Munroe tells us, there's always thousands of people who are seeing it for the first time. (via reddit)

Ginger Cat vs The Paper Army



You know how cats love to play with paper. Fun to watch, but apparently the paper is pretty darned tired of it all. In this video, the paper fights back! (via Metafilter)

Watch Goro the cat patiently don a Luke Skywalker costume and do his Jedi training! His buddy Luca has a Yoda costume, which is just freaking cute. Read more about them and see the Yoda video at Supa Fluffy.

Zone Doge



This doesn't make any sense at all, but you might like it. Apparently, Ankha Zone is a pornographic meme that used some character in Animal Crossing. This is a PG version. (via reddit)

The Itch


Bohemian Gravity



This song from A Cappella Science is a parody of "Bohemian Rhapsody" aimed at physicists and those who love physics. The lyrics, and a link for buying the song, are at the YouTube page. If you understand any of this, you have my utmost respect. All vocals by Tim Blais, even that puppet doing the processed falsetto. (via Viral Viral Videos)

Sheep Rescued from a Barbed-Wire Fence



Lucky for this sheep, he was spotted by Australian TV star and former rugby player Nick Cummins. Anyone would be willing to help the sheep (we hope), but Cummins was strong enough and knowledgeable enough to get it done. Read more about the incident at Supa Fluffy.
