The Surrealist Compliment Generator
http://www.madsci.org/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/~lynn/jardin/SCG

Troglodyte kidneys measure sardonic spasms not unlike the movements of an albatross buried in creosote.
You meander through love as a river delta contemplating levitation.
Your eyes flash upon my cathode ray flesh in a manner that propels my viscera into an eternal state of turgid flux.
Your skin emanates such a porcelain sheen that I am tempted to stamp WC under your bosom and across your armpits.
Your face is like an imperfectly shaven tennis ball.
You are as dazzling as a pregnant cow attired in electrical sockets.

Couldn't find this elsewhere on here, so here it is.
http://www.shamusyoung.com/twentysidedtale/?cat=14

its a comic strip of Lord of the rings but from a D&D angle. Hilarious and too close to the heart strings of D&D for player and GM alike.

A must read IMO.

Haha! Me and the gang still pull out the monstrous compendium every now and then to laugh our asses off. I actually think the Beholder is immensly stupid too.

The dirty laundry golem just killed me. "Orcs with panties on their face"! Hahahaha! I was afraid I'd die of heart failure during these rounds of laughter and tears.

And I am guilty of the mix two animals sin. I have a lizard-gorilla mix in the forums even! :D

Thanks for digging this up Ria. It is good to see that I ain't alone in thinking 50% of monstrous compendiums monsters are breathtakingly dumb.

Oh, come now. Monsters are supposed to be scary, and part of that fear is knowing that, should you die, you're going to have to tell people,

"Yeah, Krog, Champion of the Thousand Wastes, got killed by an orc wearing a bunch of dirty socks."


Fear of humiliation can be just as effective as fear of mutilation; they just target different genres.


Edit: Not that I'm saying that I didn't find that very amusing.

A killer summary of the last year from Dave Barry:
http://www.websitegrader.com/wsgid/567576/default.aspx

"But the biggest story in June, as well as the history of the universe, is the release of the Apple iPhone, which, in addition to enabling you to make phone calls, has all kinds of brilliant and innovative features, including AutoFondle, an application that enables the iPhone to fondle itself during those times when you are unable to fondle it manually because you're sleeping or undergoing surgery from wounds you sustained when friends or co-workers finally lost it and beat you senseless to make you shut up about your freaking iPhone already."

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/07/07/web20_for_developers/

If you have time to step away from the iPhone, have a little giggle as "Verity Snob" has a piece on How to be an instant Web me-2.0 developer that includes the documented Web version numbers:

    * Web 1.0: Programming model equivalent to that of a slightly up-market 3270 terminal. Forms are filled in with the sequence: tab tab tab tab tab tab bonk.
    * Web 1.00001: The beginning of the rich web experience: the first ever, primitive Javascript code fragment is written. It generates an unwanted popup, and snaffles your credit card details.
    * Web 1.1: No visible difference from Web 1.0, apart from IE showing the text 'Javascript error' in its status bar.
    * Web 1.2: Standard buttons are upgraded with smart 3D-looking GIFs. These react to mouseover events by bobbing up and down politely over their drop shadows. Remember when we were excited by this sort of scriptery? (None of your CSS cleverness then.) It seems so quaint now. It makes me want to cry, thinking about the good old days of ugly web pages loading slowly.
    * Web 1.3: When you get to the home page of a V1.2 site with FireFox, it displays badly. When you go to a V1.3 website such as www.fdms.com with FireFox, it tells you to eff off and get IE. (These traditionalists in fact would seem to prefer it if you used IE4.) The age of 'you aren't good enough for our website' has begun, reaching full fruition at Web 1.5, see below.
    * Web 1.4: Basic client-side validation added. Forms are filled in with the sequence: tab tab tab tab tab What do you mean 'invalid post code' you bloody thing? The dread phrase 'next generation of 3d smileys' is encountered for the very first time.
    * Web 1.5: Home page preceded by Flash animation designed by the man who thought (wrongly) he should have been asked to do the title sequence for the next Bond movie. In practice, this means the user stares at an animated 'Please wait' sign for half a minute, then goes somewhere else.
    * Web 1.6: Date fields come with a little popup calendar to help you enter a valid date. Because of the differences in the box model as implemented by IE4, the Ok button is position beyond the edge of calendar's window, and it is impossible to use it to enter a date.
    * Web 1.7: The presence of extra code interferes with the standard function of browser controls. Clicking the back button, instead of taking you back to the previous phase on the corporate workflow site so that you could point out the bug to your team leader, abruptly dumps you on the money-shot page of the gentleman's entertainment website that Porno Pete from accounts was showing you earlier on. You say.
    * Web 1.8: Web pages at this level cannot be made to run on Windows Server 2003, no matter how many 'trusted zones' you add them to, nor how much you attempt to override Internet Explorer's Enhanced Security Configuration.
    * Web 1.9: You stumble upon Desktop Tower Defense one lunchtime, and are surprised when you look up from the screen with tired, gummy eyes to notice that it has suddenly become tomorrow. But at least you have got your world ranking up to 912,417.
    * Web 2.0: At last! You can get a fully fledged mail client in your browser. Now, wherever you are in the world, whatever time of day, without the need for your own PC, you are no more than a few minutes away from a screen that reads "Oops, something has gone wrong; we're sorry, try again in a few minutes".

Verity then goes on to discuss the Evolution of the programming model, What does the P in LAMP stand for?, We should pause to consider Ruby on Rails, and finally AJAX for a cleaner kitchen.
