If it's the end of the World As We Know It…

The Alpacas of the Alpacalypse

then let’s go out feeling fine.

This is not intended to be a post of great culinary usefulness, but rather things to make you smile about the world before it ends.

Personally, I’m a huge fan of short comics online for a brief moment of joy.  I start most days with the Savage Chickens.  I love Natalie Dee.  I also follow XKCD and we all love The Oatmeal (sometimes NSFW).

YouTube is also chock full of funny.  Check out Cat Friend vs. Dog Friend. Or maybe I Built A TARDIS.  Tim Minchin’s If I Didn’t Have You.  Or this wonderful parody of Katy Perry’s California Girls, North Dakota Bois.  That last one might be funny only if you’ve lived in ND.

A couple of years ago I got a singing lobster (I’m from Maine, I had to buy it -Denise) at the grocery store.  It only cost me $6.00 but it causes me endless hilarity due to its absurdity.  And since we’re approaching the holiday season if the world doesn’t end, it’s particularly apropos. 

This is old, but the Muppet version of Bohemian Rhapsody also cracks me up every time. Watch the whole thing, don’t miss the ending.

I read the Pearls Before Swine comic strip every day before I go to work.  It helps. Rat is my favorite character for antisocial biting cynicism. And the strip always has bad puns, which makes me laugh.

What do you tune into for a little lift of spirits?  Please share.  And come back on Monday for more recipes, assuming we’re all here.
