This Brings a whole new meaning to 'play with your food'
The home of The First (and I suspect only) Vienna Vegetable Orchestra. Now I know many of you now have a mental image of a bunch of inert, drooling musicians in tuxes propped up with their bassoons. Wrong kind of vegetable. The FVVO actually constructs their instruments from vegetables. The resulting sound is very eerie, very unearthly, and very ... wet—like the mating call of a phlegmy alien. Yes, they have CDs for sale.

In his column last week David mentions a Christian Hanky Code, but fails to give a URL for it (a pitiful, plaintive plea for email). Being the civic-minded individual I am (and because I hate it when David gets more mail than me) I've Googled out the web page for you. Thank me. It took seconds. As a bonus for being faithful readers, I also give you the Goth Hanky Code page.

Give me that old time religion
You kids must have been really good last week. Another two-fer! I present you the home page of Landover Baptist Church, a brilliant parody of fundamentalist churches. With headlines like 'Are Our Troops Doing Enough to Torture Unsaved Iraqis?' how can you go wrong? The website objective.jesussave.us had me going for a moment—until I saw the antitriclavianism banner. Whew! I was scared there for a moment.
Make sure you grab those domain names!
The official White House page is at whitehouse.gov, but why bother? Are you really interested in Laura Bush's cookie recipes? OK, bad example, but these sites are infinitely more entertaining. Whitehouse.org is a parody of the Bush administration (and you know how we love those) and whitehouse.com is a porno (!) portal (sadly, we love those too). Come to think of it, whitehouse.gov is kind of both a parody of the Bush administration and a porno portal.
