I googled, “cheer me up.” Here’s what I got:
I am horrified by google, the internet, and humanity in general at the moment. How can an internet search of the words “cheer me up” be such a dud? Perhaps that’s the joke? The results are so ludicrous that they by default cheer up the searcher?
I digress. I’m not having a great morning. Lots of work things have left me in a foul, anxious, borderline sort of mood. On a whim I googled “cheer me up”. Let me share my results with you:
- The Official ZYRA Website – a truly bizarre low-tech compilation of lists, research, and encyclopedic factoids. It looks like a fantasy site, something out of a messed-up comic book world. Scary.
- The Official Jokes Thread…on a forum on East Asian Horror and Cult Cinema – the funniest thing about this site is that all the jokes are being told by someone sporting a profile pic of a Japanese schoolgirl in uniform.
- Yahoo! Answers – a depressed British schoolgirl weeps about her misery, and receives a slew of answers…
- Some Jewish Blog in Boulder, CO – and the telling of a stupid Barrack Obama joke.
It just occurred to me that I’m doing these websites a favor by actually linking back to their silly/stupid/boring content. Enjoy the weirdness, if you dare…
