This posting of animations of the 'Bush shoe throwing incident' on boing-boing, with WoW graphics (and Maliki marked as 'AFK') made me smile a lot. The Matrix one, while not MMO related, is also quite amusing.

Colbert is Immortal

So did you see the Stephen Colbert interview with Richard Garriot? I love the fact that, other than the screen shot (which was really small), Tabula Rasa got no mention at all. I'm not sure how effective that was as marketing, but it certainly was amusing. I wonder if Garriot made it to space, or is still being held by the Russians?

Massively also did a post on this, with lots of link love.

WoW and the elections

Comedy Central has a fun post up detailing what each presidential candidate has that appeals to the various classes in WoW. There's a great photoshopped image of each candidate's toon (I think Hillary wins that one, although McCain is strong too). My favourite plus: Mages like McCain because of his "wizened old coot-like visage."

watch out where you step in un'goro

DadHacker asks an amusing question about the various and sundry beasties one kills in an MMO: "where is all the poop?" He then goes on to posit dungbeetles the size of large dogs working away behind the scenes to keep your character's super-duper purple boots free from gunk.

a little humour

I think Penny Arcade has decided Dungeons and Dragons Online has jumped the shark.
