Funny or Die

Funny or Die

This site was created by Gary Sanchez Productions and a bunch of Silicon Valley guys who drive Hondas and watch old episodes of Babylon Five. Venture capitalist, Mark Kvamme and his son came up with a concept for a new kind of comedy site and approached Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s company, Gary Sanchez Productions. Randy Adams, a Silicon Valley serial entrepreneur, signed on to handle design and implementation. They along with writer/producer Chris Henchy sought to make a comedy site where established comedians and regular users could put up stuff just because they think it’s funny. At the same time they wanted to eliminate all the junk that people have to pick through to find funny stuff. So they came up with the funny or die idea.

Washroom, disabled » gor[b]

Washroom, disabled » gor[b]: " This room is reserved for the use of staff and visitors with physical disabilities.

“Huh?” I thought to myself, “ONLY people with disabilities?” Not that I have strong feelings about the matter, but I’ve never heard of these washrooms being off-limits to the able bodied. And what prompted the signage? Were there complaints from people with disabilities who had to wait while the able-bodied used their johns? Is it poor form to use them at all? Or does our property manager just want to cut back on cleaning? I resolved to find out" "DreamsAway is a small group of Adults with disabilities working hard at raising funds to help pay for Attendant care workers / helpers to assist us with going on a much needed holiday.

Spaghetti tree - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Spaghetti tree - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The spaghetti tree is a fictitious tree, a joke designed to fool those who do not know how spaghetti is produced.

The report that it is a product grown on trees was first produced as an April Fools' Day joke by the BBC TV programme Panorama in 1957, reporting on the bumper spaghetti harvest in Ticino, Switzerland due to the mild winter and 'virtual disappearance of the spaghetti weevil.' The report was given additional gravitas by the voiceover by respected broadcaster Richard Dimbleby. Pasta was not an everyday food in 1950s Britain, and was known mainly from tinned spaghetti in tomato sauce. It was considered by many to be an exotic delicacy.[1] It was partly filmed at the (now closed) Pasta Foods factory on London Road, St Albans in Hertfordshire, and also at a hotel in Castiglione Switzerland."
