Wow, when I read matildaben's comment I didn't recall any "Best Of" posts, but having seen the goods, I must agree -- they're too good to die.

the post-it-notes weren't actually stolen since they were used in the office under the direction of their boss.

errr - I mean, thanks for the round up :)

Unfortunate Star Wars Costumes

I've embraced the dark side of the force AND the softer side of Sears.

Most of those costumes aren't too bad. I've worn far, far worse.

And now, by the way, I hope some of you nice people go comment on louigi's post.
posted by anastasiav 23 June | 23:58
I probably would have commented there, but I had already seen the site because of a post semmi made on viewropa... and I didn't want to say "nice site - I've already seen it", but I do find it strange that it got so few comments. Too much information in the presentation, maybe?

I wonder if it would have received more feedback if louigi had selected only one article to focus on, then just mentioned that the site was full of such gems?
