Some jokes, mainly recycled, about Gawker. A bit of context: Metafilter is a weblog community, which hates everything Gawker stands for. And I do hope they can pinpoint what Gawker stands for, because we haven't quite defined that yet. I'm sure I've heard this one before, but it still made me chuckle:
Q. How many Gawker readers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. Two. One to mix martinis while the other calls the electrician.
There are more, of amusement to web insiders, at Metafilter, but I'll leave you with this.
A traveler wandering on an island inhabited entirely by web-savvy cannibals comes upon a butcher shop. This shop specialized in human brains. The sign in the shop read: Brain Type/Price per Pound
· Metafilter readers' brains/$9.00
· Plastic readers' brains/$12.00
· Fark readers' brains/$15.00
· Gawker readers' brains/$29.00
Upon reading the sign, the traveler noted, "My, those Gawker readers' brains must be quite tasty!"
The butcher replied, "That's not it. Do you have any idea how many Gawker readers you have to kill to get a pound of brains?"
