Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet. Funday links will open in a new window.

David Lynch on iPhone [del.icio.us]

If you’ve spent any time on the internet lately, you’ve probably already seen this, but if not, it’s worth watching. I laughed my ass off when I watched this, not only because he’s absolutely correct, but because he’s David Lynch. By the way, one trillion is a 1 with 12 zeros after it. To put that into a bit of perspective, 1,000,000 x 1,000,000 = 1,000,000,000,000. That’s a lot of years.

Planet of The Arabs [del.icio.us]

Western civilization has disliked the Arabs for a long time. This video is a humorous and somewhat sobering look at how Arabs are treated in Western cinema. From the video’s description: Out of 1,000 films that have Arab & Muslim characters from the year 1896 to 2000, 12 were positive depictions, 52 were even handed, and the rest of the 900 and so were negative.

The last three links share a theme: things that look like (or make you look like) other things.

The Top 25 Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians [del.icio.us]

There are guys on this list who I’ve long thought look like lesbians. Don’t just skim over the pictures; the captions are hilarious and often dead-on.

Cats That Look Like Hitler [del.icio.us]

It’s a bit of a stretch for some of these cats, but others are dead ringers for the Führer.

American Apparel Will Make You Look Like A Fat Hooker [del.icio.us]

I’ve always thought this to be true, and now jezebel.com has proven it. I’ve never liked American Apparel and I constantly wonder what the fuss is about.

  2. Can I just ask: why the hell does every site look like lifehacker/gizmodo now-a-days?

    (re: jezebel.com)

  3. AA: There’s a link to a previous video, “American Apparel Ads: Sexy Or Sexist?” in which a woman says she’d rather shop at UniQlo. This was the highlight of my day. ^_^

  4. I totallys dugg that American Apparel story.

    I’m disappointed that the Planet of the Arabs lacked anything from Lawrence of Arabia.

  5. The 25 men who look like old lesbians was good, but the link to the 25 weird toys from around the wold was much better. Especially the little girl getting herpes.

  6. Your masthead is awesome, btw.

  7. David Lynch is awesome!

    I stumbled upon that Cats That Look Like Hitler site a few months ago and absolutely loved it. It’s not so much the cats that are entertaining as it is the people who comment on that site. They get pretty riled up!

    Love the masthead! You’re so talented …
