Two McSweeney's lists:
"Lowbrow TV Programming for Linguists" (Andrew C. Duenas)
"An Accidental Merging of the 2007 Billboard Year-end Hot 100 with the Operating Report from My Bowel Resection" (Greta Boesel)
ps An extra, for Yalies: "What's in a (Yale) Typeface?" (YDN) Drat! I thought it was Palatino!
pps An extra, for those hoping to impress at get-togethers: Wonder how to play the piano part of U2's "New Year's Day"? Though I don't know what's better, the tutorial, or the guy's little brother. (YouTube)
