Secretary of the Internet


xkcd, an online web comic, is generally brilliantly funny.  It's especially funny in it's currently running series.  Check it out starting here.

Making Out

A friend recounted a story of an intimate moment interrupted by his partner suddenly asking a question about lyrics.

"And then we both thought of you. Because of your misheard lyrics posts. Not because of anything weird."

Awkward pause.

Clearly the next logical question was...

"What song?"

I wasn't familiar with it, and upon hearing it, was puzzled.

"That's a bit faster than anything I'd play during an unspecified intimate moment."
"Um, well, it has a good beat."

I refrained from further questions.

But it did remind me to review my make-out playlist. It's an odd thing. I have no idea what I was thinking on some of these tracks, which clearly belong on a "sex it up" playlist, not a "make out" list.

And just to randomly drop some tracks on you,

"Clouds Up" - Air

"You Do" - Aimee Mann

"Les Professionnels" - Air


"Sleepwalk" - Santo & Johnny

"Wicked Game" - Chris Isaak

"Ain't No Sunshine" - Bill Withers

"Justify My Love" - Madonna

"Something's Gotta Give" - Beastie Boys
(well, until I watched this video, anyway)

Curl Up With A Warm Cup Of Crazy

Make sure you're not drinking anything when you watch this.  It might end up ... well, everywhere. (h/t MeFi)

The crazy really kicks in around 1:14.  Next gear, 3:55.  And finally, 6:30.  Soooooo amazingly horrifying.

Volvo Is Not Subtle

You might be trying to be subtle, but you're...
Not.  Subtle.  At.  All.

Entire commercial, but especially the logo at the end.

"Buy this car, and a hot woman like this will stroke you.  Men buy Volvo's."
