    Memes. Virals. Musical Insanity, video villainy. Any and all bait for the following conditions: mouth-smirk, diaphragm-rip, arse-leak, colleague-dismissal. That which renders the working-day bearable. That which dooms culturists to misery.

    Your net foragings. The scum which accumulates on the surface of your inbox. The froth on the drunken face of the world. The gorgeous spraint of the massmind. Bring it all hither.

    (Note that news stories and Things Of Interest now have a separate home in the “NewStrange” thread. This right here is where we present anything that would be fundamentally valueless, if it weren’t so clearly brilliant.)

    You know the drillerkiller.

    The Aunty Jack Show was a Logie Award–winning Australian television comedy series that ran from 1972 to 1973. Produced by and broadcast on ABC-TV, the series attained an instant cult status that persists to the present day. The lead character, Aunty Jack was a unique comic creation — an obese, moustachioed, gravel-voiced transvestite, part trucker and part pantomime dame — who habitually solved any problem by knocking people unconscious or threatening to rip their Bloody arms off.

    Pop history #42.

    The truck chase from Terminator 3 remains one of the all-time great action sequences in cinema, featuring insane levels of destruction. While digital doubles were used for the Terminator characters during key parts of the crane sequence, much of the action was performed by old-school stuntmen driving actual vehicles. T3 also retains the record for the highest approved budget, at $170 million, and it was Arnold Schwarzenegger's final starring role before being elected governor of California.

    HEY THERE, KIDS! It's the mad, bad Mister Hex, ever-lovin' blue-eyed idol o' millions with another (in a series, yet! Sheesh! More on that later! Now, "On with the shoe!", as the late, great Irving Forbush used to say!) viral-type video goodness from my end of the world! Some pals of mine are making a documentary about a fine fellow name of HUGH OLIVER and his life and his art (a quick aside about why one should care and be privledged to get a preview of said doc? Good ol' Hugh used to live next door to Glyn Johns {famed record producer who worked with just about everybody, from Dylan and the Beatles to Georgie Fame!} and who, at the age of 80-some-odd, is making a run at super-stardom!) HUGH OLIVER is the name - being awesome is the game!

    Anyhow, Frantic Ones, here's Hugh's latest masterpiece -

    Check out his videos for Rhianna and Adele, too! Go now! You know you want to! Collect 'em all - there'll be a quiz later!

    (If you're waiting for me to say "Apologies to Stan Lee for stealing his bit", pull up a chair. It's gonna be a long wait.)

    "Mysterious hog farm explosions stump scientists"

    A strange new growth has emerged from the manure pits of midwestern hog farms. The results are literally explosive. Since 2009, six farms have blown up after methane trapped in an unidentified, pit-topping foam caught a spark. In the afflicted region, the foam is found in roughly 1 in 4 hog farms. A gelatinous goop that resembles melted brown Nerf, the foam captures gases emitted by bacteria living in manure, which on industrial farms gathers in pits beneath barns that may contain several thousand animals.The pits are emptied each fall, after which waste builds up again, turning them into something like giant stomachs: dark, oxygen-starved percolators in which bacteria and single-celled organisms metabolize the muck. Methane is a natural byproduct, and is typically dispersed by fans before it reaches explosive levels. But inside the foam’s bubbles, methane reaches levels of 60 to 70 percent, or more than four times what’s considered dangerous. The foam can reach depths of more than four feet.

    If we are talking about funny moments in British Game shows there isn't many that can beat Bradley Walsh's hilarious corpsing while trying to ask a question about a German downhill skier:
