London Airport Announcements
This is hilarious - trust me. From the web page:
"We'd go and sit on the balcony at Terminal 3 at

with the microphone poking out of the top. Then
we'd look for a flight that had arrived in the last
40 minutes from somewhere where you'd
expect people with unpronounceable names i.e.
We would then go to the Airport Help Desk with
a pre-written note containing the names of
fictitious passengers and ask them to read out
the names over the PA system.
The passenger’s names looked innocent enough
on paper but they sounded like something else
when read out loud."

stories from the onion
The Onion is a parody news publication/site that
is often hilarious. Sometimes just the titles of
articles (or their parody magazine) are great in
and of themselves.
Here are some of my favorite articles:
1) "Amish Give Up: 'This is Bullshit,' Elders Say"
(June 19, 1996)
2) "New Study Reveals: Babies are Stupid"
(October 31, 1995)
3) "Scissors Defeats Rock" (November 28, 1995)
4) "Tibetan Resistance Leaders Seize Yak:
'Whatever,' Say Chinese" (March 12, 1997)
5) "Christ Announces Hiring of Associate Christ"
(May 7, 1998)
6) "Life Unfair" (April 30, 1997)
7) "Scientists Discover Gene Responsible For
Eating Whole Goddamn Bag Of Chips"
(September 1, 1999)
8) "Coffeehouse Encounter Results In
Conversation, Cunnilingus" (November 7, 1995)
(Sorry, I know this sounds tacky, but it is very
amusing - I couldn't help it!)
