Making Garfield Funny

Hah! Someone finally figured out how to make that hoary, old comic strip Garfield funny - take out the cat!

Without the eponymous main character, it becomes "a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb." ROTFLMAO!

The Belief-O-Matic

Yeah, it's an oldie but a goodie - Beliefnet's Belief-O-Matic, a personality quiz about your religious and spiritual beliefs.

Me ? 100% Unitarian Universalist and in the mid to upper 90's for both Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants and Liberal Quakers, plus a fair amount of Buddhism and Secular Humanism. No surprises there :)
