If you're into flash animation, http://www.homestarrunner.com/ seems to be funny if you let it run for a bit.

It's not especially in genre, though.

Not a link, but Howard Stern had two other DJs on this morning instead of his show saying that he had been pulled off the air. They kept talking about "Fun without the filth" and playing Top 40 radio (Britney Spears, Pink, etc.). If you don't know, Stern's home NY station (WXRK) is a hard-rock station that normally plays people like Korn, Hoobastank, Drowning Pool, etc., so the music that was on was completely the opposite of the normal tenor of the station.

It was a good fake since Stern is under fire from the FCC and Colin Powell's son right now. He came on the air about 7:30AM (east coast) to annouce the trick.

Jeff, your (I assume) contribution http://www.locusmag.com/2004/Features/0401_ImaginaryWorlds.html ) to the Locus page had me rolling on the floor... that was fucking classic. I particularly liked the bits “from” Harrison and Donaldson... funny stuff.

The electronic frontier foundation has a particularly acid one up at http://www.eff.org/

Planned Parenthood got into the act at http://www.saveroe.com/whitehouse/

Also, if you're into somewhat obvious, there's http://www.fark.com/

That's all I have right now, but if I see more I'll mention them.
