If you're looking for something to make you laugh, but you've only got about ten seconds to spare, then (a) You are Christopher Hinds, and I claim my five pounds, and (b) you should have a look at McSweeney's lists. The style and quality of the lists is a bit variable since anyone can submit one, but they're generally good for a chuckle, and some of them are outright brilliant. Some favourites:-
- Things Hagrid the Half-Giant Would Say if he Served Jesus Instead of Harry Potter: sample list item: "Why, if a fellow wanted ta get away clean, Peter-me-lad, all they'd have ter do would be ta deny they ever even knowed Jesus. Uh-oh. I shouldn't eh told yeh that."
- Adjectives Rarely Used by Wine Tasters: sample list items, Crippling, Caffeinated.
- Methods Other Than Song by Which One Can Be Killed Softly: sample list items: Allergic reaction to cashmere, Stuffed animal avalanche.
Never fails to cheer me up, no list takes more than ten seconds to read.
