"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.

UPDATE: Link fixed now. Thanks to the commenters.

"This Is The Greatest Shakespeare Audition Fail You Have Ever Seen"

I haven't seen all that many "Shakespeare audition fails," granted, but if I had, this would probably rank right up there.

"Something about the Crusades . . . CNN with up-to-the-moment analysis of church bombings in Europe."

You can laugh--I did--or you can cry a little. Either response is reasonable.

"Congress Fiercely Divided Over Completely Blank Bill That Says And Does Nothing"

Sounds real, but it is The Onion, of course.

A blank piece of legislation that says nothing, does nothing, and contains no text whatsoever has been the source of heated debate in Washington this week, and has sharply divided Congress along partisan lines, Beltway sources confirmed Thursday.

Known as S.0000, the bill, which doesn’t have sponsors, co-sponsors, or an author, has reportedly drawn starkly contrasting opinions from legislators in both the Senate and House of Representatives, and has paved the way for a major legislative battle in coming months.
