OpenBook: idiot detection using Web 2.0

Posted by Martin Poulter on 25 June 2010

Not all status updates on Facebook are protected. Despite usually intended just for friends, many are publicly readable, and the OpenBook search engine indexes them. That’s how you can get a list of named individuals, with photographs, next to too-much-information statuses such as “i also pt whipped creme on my nipples and made my dog lick it” or “I love dogging”. What’s more disturbing is to search for racist insults or, my favourite, “not a racist but”, scroll down and see the depths of barely literate, bigoted fucktardiness.

Who would win in a fight between Neo and Luke Skywalker? Okay, but who would win if Jack Sparrow fought Shrek? Now what about if Frodo fought Harry Potter? Britney Spears versus Madonna? Only quirky stick-figure animations with vocal sound-effects can give you the answers. Thanks Ed Mallon for the link.

The secret of comedy

Posted by Martin Poulter on 12 June 2010

…is to make mundane things seem disgustingly taboo and taboo things seem mundane (but more disgusting). There, I’ve said it. This, to me, is the secret of bozarking’s comments on Reddit.

Surrealism can be pretty funny too.
