I'm on the Freecycle mailing list for this county. This list provides some hilarity to me at times, watching what people will ask for. Some people seem to forget that this is a list where items are offered for free, this also would generally mean that you shouldn't be too picky about what comes your way, because, you know, it's FREE and not costing you anything.

Earlier in the week, someone posted a Wanted for a horse. Yes, one of those 4 legged furry breathing ones that you can ride on. And it had to be tame/friendly too. Let me just get that for you, one sec, I have a spare in the closet... *eyeroll*.

Another that got me was someone asking for Le Creuset ware. Le Creuset is enameled cast iron cookware, it lasts a long time... my mother has a dutch oven and a saucepan of theirs, and has had them for at least 25 years now. You easily pay $100+ for the pans. So this someone was asking for them, and on top of that, was stipulating that the enamel had to be chip free. It doesn't bother me that they're asking for expensive stuff, hell, what do you have to lose if someone is actually looking to get rid of some... but to be that picky about the state it's in is just rather obnoxious when it's a freebie. Especially considering this county (being the most expensive to live in the country) isn't lacking in well-to-do people.

For now, I'll keep giggling at people asking for high-end items that are unlikely to really appear on a Freecycle list though...

So I was going through my inbox deleting old and trash email, and came across this one, that's been sitting in my inbox since 2002. It seems I got this joke off a newsgroup at the time. It still cracks me up.

Two nuns, Sister Marilyn and Sister Helen, are travelling through Europe in their car. They get to Transylvania and are stopped at a traffic light. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a diminutive Dracula jumps onto the hood of the car and hisses at them, through the windshield.

"Quick, quick!" shouts Sister Marilyn. "What shall we do?" "Turn the windshield wipers on. That will get rid of the abomination," says Sister Helen. Sister Marilyn switches them on, knocking Dracula about, but he clings on and continues hissing at the nuns. "What shall I do now?" she shouts.

"Switch on the windshield washer. I filled it up with Holy Water in the Vatican," says Sister Helen. Sister Marilyn turns on the windshield washer. Dracula screams as the water burns his skin, but he clings on and continues hissing at the nuns.

"Now what?" shouts Sister Marilyn. As Dracula hangs on. "Show him your cross," says Sister Helen. "Now you're talking," says Sister Marilyn as she opens the window and shouts, ... "Get the Fuck off our car!!"

PreZ and I caught some random episodes of this BBC sit-com on PBS and while we were in Holland, and were happy to find out that they've started releasing it on dvd. Only the first 2 seasons are availible on dvd in the US though, and courtesy of Netflix we've been watching them.

The clip is one from an episode in the first season, after mum Susan (the excellent Zoƫ Wanamaker) has decided they should have a burglar alarm installed. It's been going off several times most nights, to the chagrin of husband Ben and the kids. Hilarity ensues, of course.

The eldest son Nick in the series is played by the guy who played dorky Colin in Love Actually.

So, enjoy the clip, and besides that, I really recommend sniffing out the series via Netflix or wherever, it's very funny :)

After watching this video that [ profile] abigailvr posted a link to, I saw a link to this one, which just had me laughing with tears in my eyes.

The song in the first one might not be entirely worksafe, depending on whether "boob" will have your workmates looking at you funny, but the videos are both worksafe, with babies in them.

For those unaware, Finland got sick of always losing the Eurovision songfestival, so this year they thought "fuck it!" and entered Lordi, a hardrock band that dons monster make-up. Now, Eurovision generally inspires insipid pop music entries (and you can thank them for ABBA and Celine Dion), so this is quite a departure.

This weekend was the final, and Lordi actually won. I think this is absolutely fabulous and completely hilarious.

Their entry "Hard Rock Hallelujah":

Eurovision version:

It's like Warcraft: The Band *giggle*.

The song's videoclip:

After this, I wonder if it will open the floodgates to whacky entries in Eurovision in future years.

Youtube is good for finding other entrants too. The Netherlands apparantly didn't make it past the semi-final, yet somehow the UK's entry did... I really have to wonder how/why, that "rap" song sucked ass.

Edit: Google Video has better quality videos.
