Steotch: Where The Internet Leaks Into Cross-Stitching

A website has not made me laugh this hard in a long, long time. STEOTCH collects "fine New England Needleart" that is a little off the beaten path - a lot of viral web references, a lot of rap lyrics ("Bless This Hizzy, Fo Shizzle"), and the uncategorizable, as seen above in the Judge Judy pattern

Stitch on, friends.

I'm talking about drawing a line on the screen, Dude.

On BallDroppings, there's a big black screen and a falling white dot, and you draw lines with your mouse to make the dot bounce in different ways.

That's pretty much it - but it's a lot of fun, maybe because in drawing the line on the screen. Dude, you're saying across this line, you DO NOT...

Don't Believe Everything You Read, But if You Do, Tell This Tumblr Blog

The Onion's satire is sometimes as sharp as a ninja's throwing star - but in a time where huge numbers of people are getting their news from (half-) reading Facebook posts and forwarded emails... and sometimes not everybody quite catches the joke.

Smugopedia, The Free Encyclopedia That's a Lot Cooler Than You

Meet Smugopedia, the online encyclopedia that knows more than you do and isn't afraid to tell you so. Actually, Smugopedia is a fun and funny spoof of hipsters along the lines of The Rock Snob's Dictionary by David Kamp and Steven Daly. Which is hopefully an obscure enough reference to make me a hipster at long last.  [via Nag on the Lake]
