Internet Fun

Last year, I came upon a couple of sites that I want to share with you. The first one was recommended to me a couple of years ago by my friend Tim T, but I guess I forgot all about it and re-discovered it this past year. It is Engrish.com I specifically recommend this to anyone living overseas or have at anytime lived overseas. It is pictures of funny signs and products that are mis-using English. I subscribe to it via Bloglines so that the updates are automatic. They add to it several times a day.

I submitted this picture some time ago, but it is yet to be published:



I made the comment that "Shouldn't it be 'Mister' instead of 'Doctor'?"

The other is the FailBlog.org FailBlog is a blog of user submitted photos (as is Engrish.com) showing funny things. I submitted this picture this week, (but am still awaiting publication)



The concept is easy. Take a photo that looks as if there is a failure in some aspect of it. For example, in the photo above, there is a meat processing plant right next door to a cemetary. The sign for the company is even located on the cemetary grounds. The actual site has a filter to make sure you don't get any "inappropriate" pictures. (a very nice thing to have! )

Anyway, I thought you might enjoy looking at these two sites. They give me multiple laughs each day.
