So what's your favorite incident of internet tomfoolery today? I have several candidates myself. One in particular being the awesome site that lets you put sparkly unicorns all over your browser. I use this a ridiculous amount while reading dry functional morphology papers. It's hard to be worn down by statistics and graphs when there is a purple unicorn galivanting over a rainbow in Fig. 3. Today, though. Today it gives you SPARKLY KITTENS OMG. I wish it did this every day.

But my personal favorite is probably this one: Twitter switch for Guardian, after 188 years of ink. Seriously, the giggling gave me physical pain.

A mammoth project is also under way to rewrite the whole of the newspaper's archive, stretching back to 1821, in the form of tweets. Major stories already completed include "1832 Reform Act gives voting rights to one in five adult males yay!!!"; "OMG Hitler invades Poland, allies declare war see tinyurl.com/b5x6e for more"; and "JFK assassin8d @ Dallas, def. heard second gunshot from grassy knoll WTF?"

I started laughing again just C&Ping that. AHAHA. Oh, Guardian.

This was also relevant to my interests: Fiction World Rocked as Woman Claims No Sexual Attraction to Neil Gaiman.

Gaiman twittered about it. Obviously. Also I would totally buy that Britsexgeek book. Um. DON'T LOOK AT ME.

BWAHHH. YES.

...annnnd back to editing/working. /editing. /porning. So yeah. What lulz have you guys found, o faithful flist?
