Take a break from the
drudgery with some of these jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor that has been collected from friends & from websites across

of any links that will result in audio clips so you can take appropriate precautions. Please send any potential candidates for this humor page

they were made with a child's
. Really high-end waveform artists figured out how to drive the z-axis (intensity) to blank out the
pattern in the right places to draw more sophisticated pictures. As is usually the case, with the passage of time
comes an evolution to higher-order applications, like orchestrated Lissajous
