Toothpaste For Dinner

June 27, 2005 § Leave a comment

Slate wrote an article last week on one of my favorite websites, Toothpaste For Dinner.  The author, Sam Anderson, writes about how he stumbled across the site and quickly became addicted to it.  It sucked away all productivity and consumed hours of his day reading the archives and sending links of his favorites to friends.

It’s a daily habit for me, too.  I think they’re hilarious.  Not in the blatantly funny way, but in a subtle, absurd, "damn, I’ve thought that before and someone is actually writing it" way.  The author also compares it a lot to The Far Side.  I like The Far Side a lot, too (I often used it while teaching – of course they didn’t understand), but TFD is much more absurd.

I’m glad others get it, too.
