We here at WWWeird love self abuse. We think Jackass may have actually been THE peak of human artistic achievment. It's no wonder then that we were enthralled with PokeAlexInTheEye.com . It combines abuse with our other favorite thing: sheer pointlessness. This is probably the most pointless 'game' since FreeVerse software unleashed SimStapler, the virtual office equipment, on the world. If you don't know what SimStapler is, g-o-o-g-l-e!

Out of Focus

www.focusonyourchild.com/develop/art1/A0000683.html

Oh, boy. Focus on the Family, the not-so-Reverend Dr. James Hobson's homo-hating cabal, now has a site called FocusOnYourChild.com . We were particularly impressed to learn that homos are bred, not born. We were certain the last time we checked that the whole nature/nurture thing was still up in the air, but then again we spent the last hour or so poking Alex in the eye and virtual stapling, so we may have missed the press release. Not too entertaining, but it's always good to know what the enemy is up to.

Woohoo! Industrial accidents! That's exactly what we needed to lift us out of the funk brought on by learning that we're gay because mama didn't raise us right. Hell, we still hadn't forgiven her for the whole circumcision thing. Thanksgiving this year was starting to look tense. Fortunately, CraneAccidents.com came along and shifted our admittedly flighty attentions away from mom's parenting skills and to the potential of seeing people squashed by cranes. And yes, if you dig around in there, there's a lovely photo of a man pinned under a crane, the big metal kind, not the bird. Sheesh!

Pinscher in Disguise with pom-poms

www.attackchi.org .au/kits.htm

AttachChi.org .au is a site bemoaning the fact that due to some people's poor parenting skills ( We can't get away from that now. Damn you, James Dobson! ) certain breeds of dog are listed as dangerous in Australia and apparently are a bit more of a hassle to now own. These include some common breeds like German Shepherds and Dobermans. This page shows you how to dress your doberman up to look like a standard poodle so you can take him out in public without worry. Hah! If the dog wasn't mean before, subjecting him to this will sure as hell make him that way!
