All Your Base are Belong to Us
About 2 years ago, somebody made the Hamster Dance site, which featured a bunch of animated GIF file hamsters "dancing" to a particularly annoying and infections song. I split a gut laughing at that one. It was available at www.hampsterdance.com, but no longer. Then came Hamster Blast (be careful with this link—it opens a bunch of windows on your desktop), which lets you explode the hamsters as they dance. There's a relatively new one now at http://www.funstun.com/smiley1.htm, which features a bunch of dancing and winking yellow smiley faces. Not so funny, but that song. It sticks to you like that song from the Disney ride...
I love those goofy web sites. Some people have way too much time on their hands. Imagine, for example, the work that went into this video that pokes fun at the terrible English translations in the old Zero Wing game. The video originated here, which has some information about its production.
