There is no limit to the level of craziness one can find on the Internet. Sure, the Web is often on the business end of criticism – leveled at the unbridled flow of smut and salaciousness that spreads it’s viral tendrils throughout – but if this pic and the others at this guy’s Flickr site prove anything – the ‘net can be a great paeon to impressive strokes of creativity. I mean, Lego Duck Hunt. Why didn’t I think of that.
There’s a humorous story behind this. I like to kid our pal Jen Pope – or JPo (let it be forever known that it was I who gave her that lifelong nickname). Anyway, I bust on her for her uncanny ability to locate the strangest of the strange in cyberspace – and her unbridled passion to not only find such oddities, but to insure they get forwarded along and seared upon our peepers.
Anyway, Andi received a link from Jen the other day, that brought her to some video of four infant quadruplets laughing in unison at their offscreen Dad. The video looked like something you’d see on America’s Funniest Home Video – minus the grating Bob Saget commentary. And… it was funny. Still, I thought about it, and wondered – how in the hell did Jen find this? I mean, who Googles “infant quadruplet comedy routines”?
So I told Mook about this and mentioned that once upon a time, Joe was the undisputed heavyweight champion of random web surfing. Now, I declared, Jen claimed rightful heir to the throne.
Moments later I arrived at work and found the image below (Lego Katamari Damacy) awaiting me in my e-mail, forwarded by Joe the night before. Ladies and gentleman, the return of the king.
