Wherein the hidden wonders of the Inter Wide Net Web have some light, erm, shed upon them. 'Shed' as in like pet's fur onto a couch.

Well, I hope there's going to be more to this thread than that...

Although that opening statement is one of the oddest I've come across in a long time.

Are we nearly there yet??

(However, I have now done the wider world a. uh, favour and posted the link to that Labour Part slash site on my board. That's odder than a very odd thing...)

Okay, Mark - that is fairly odd - I think I'm going to drop a gratuitous pit head carver into the novel, and then back-engineer it so that the plot revolves around him.

More Oddies!

They really are quite disturbing.

They're sort of like hobbit netsuke.

I like the alien. Very glossy.

Any more like this and I'm going to start talking about the House on the Rock again.

Cow cat: the look on that cat's face says "They are going to pay for this...oh yes, they will PAY."

I imagine that the owner of the cow suit found something really quite vile, concealed in the middle of the bed, several days later....

The Tough Choices are disturbing...

Yes - the 'oddness' of TOUGH QUESTIONS is not so much the concept, as the application. I am deeply disturbed by some of the conundrums. Poorly minds.

Yes, who thinks up these things? "Your finger in a deep fat fryer or - something equally ghastly."

Still, at least it keeps them occupied. Fully, one hopes.

Fuck, these are weird - especially the snake faced kids.

I like the cat-parrot, though.

Some of them are a bit reminiscent of the people in SOS THE ROPE and THE DEAD LADY OF CLOWN TOWN, if I have the title right.

What's going on here, Roberts? You somekindasicko?
Too fluffy by half - WAY too fluffy by half!


btw meant to mention about the Human Descent site - was disappointed not to see a SharkMonkey of any sort. The SquirrelHawk was good though.

Neil - MAXIMUM FQ (Fluffiness Quotient). We take things - all things, fluffiness of wunny babbits included - to the very edge, here on Oddities.

Hi Mark,

I was just wondering: I haven't received any 'signature sheets' for Thackery yet and I thought I'd better check that they haven't been sent. The postal service where I live is pretty abysmal, so it's possible that they ended up in the depot (in I wasn't in to collect them) and eventually got sent back to the sender!

Or maybe I'm not supposed to have received them???

ODDITY 006 - THE SKATEBOARDING DOG THAT ACTUALLY DOES SKATEBOARD

It's been a while, I know - too long, in fact - but at last, something on the web has amazed and dumbfounded me. The title says it all. Follow this link and click on the .wmv near the top of the page.

That little guy is STEERING that board, people. STEERING!
