Truth in advertising
You certainly can't accuse the proprietors of dottedlines.com of false advertising. They do, however, need to expand just a bit. Right now they only feature one kind of dotted line. They should have a variety of dotted lines in sundry weights. And an online store—they definitely should have an online store. A Goooogle search for 'dotted line sales' turned up zero sites dealing in dotted lines. They'd have the market cornered.
Saccharine overdose! Quick pass the ipecac!
Some probably will maintain that this site is romantic. We here at WWWeird are far too jaded and world-weary to get sucked in. Cheryl and Bruce were wed in 1999. He put up this site as his tribute to the 'most beautiful girl in the world.' Presumably he feels this way because he finally found a woman who would open her legs for him. I mean, look at him: his goofy smile, that schnoz, his goddamn cable sweater. We don't think he was beating the women back with a stick. His lady Cheryl's no woofer, but most beautiful girl in the world? We don't think so.
Oh for Qun's sake. get a life.
KLI is the Klingon Language Institute. The KLI 'is a nonprofit 501(cƝ corporation and exists to facilitate the scholarly exploration of the Klingon language and culture.' Exploration of Klingon language and culture? I'm not quite sure how one explores the language and culture of a civilization that never existed—sorry, I mean hasn't existed yet. Yes, we here at WWWeird are all about wasting time—creatively. Don't waste your time learning Klingon. Waste it making a portrait of Elvis out of toast.
Now this is a commendable waste of time
Here is another example of what you can do instead of learning Klingon: collect potted meats, then photograph them and put all the details up on a website. See how much better this is? You can share your obsession with the whole world, not just a few thousand or so people who seriously need to get out of the house more. The museum boasts 166 cans of Spam-like products. The disclaimer at the bottom informs us that the 'collection is for amusement purposes only. None of these meats have ever been opened or eaten.' Phew!
