"An Honest Letter from Your I.T. Department"

Short and funny.

Although we refer to this as an upgrade, it is, at best, a lateral move. The software does the same things as before, except your favorite features have been moved to a place where you will never find them again.

"A little post mid-week motivation can be good for you"

Made me laugh, particularly #6 and #9.

They got it.

"In Defense Of Brian Williams: Take It From Me, All War Correspondent Stories Get Bigger With Time And Drinks"

P. J. O'Rourke tells some tales. (Including one about throwing Dixie Chick CDs out of the Chinook.)

"Department of the Internet: Installation"

I laughed. (But it's probably a little too close to the truth.)

"28 of the Best Smartass Responses Ever"

Most of them are good, but the response to "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars" is the winner.

"Comedians on The College Experience"

For anybody who studied a foreign language in American schools, I recommend Tom Parks's bit. It describes my experience exactly.

"The Jewish tie salesman"

Via Economic Job Market Rumors.

A fleeing Taliban terrorist, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the mirage only to find a very frail little old Jewish man standing at a small makeshift display rack - selling ties.

The Taliban terrorist asked, "Do you have water?" The Jewish man replied, "I have no water. But would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5."

The Taliban shouted hysterically, "Idiot Infidel! I do not need such an over-priced western adornment. I spit on your ties. I need water!

"Sorry, I have none, just ties - pure silk, and only $5." "Pah! A curse on your ties! I should wrap one around your scrawny little neck and choke the life out of you but . . . I must conserve my energy and find water!" "Okay," said the little old Jewish man. . . . It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie from me, or that you hate me, threaten my life, and call me infidel. I will show you that I am bigger than any of that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a restaurant. It has the finest food and all the ice-cold water you need. Go In Peace.

Cursing him again, the desperate Taliban staggered away, over the hill. Several hours later, he crawled back, almost dead, and gasped, "They won't let me in without a tie!"

"Ten Ways Men Oppress Women with Their Everyday Behavior"

Beautifully done.

1. Broplimenting

This is when a guy says something nice to you without asking for your consent first. Men should always ask. “Do you consent to me complimenting you?” before saying anything nice or else it’s assault. No, nonverbal cues don’t count – he still has to ask for explicit consent before offering that kind of affection.

"This Is The Only Summary Of Pride And Prejudice You Need To Read"

Concise as heck.
