Blake's Blackberry Boredom tools

Blake told me he was using my aol random user query from his Blackberry while he was out somewhere waiting for his wife or something, since he found the queries interesting/amusing. But the page was too heavy to really work well on a blackberry because of all the links in the table I had to try the queries on various search engines.

So I've made two stripped-down anti-boredom tools for Blake. One is a lightweight version of the aol random user session tool. The other one is joke. Warning: since the jokes are from the 70's CMU tops-a joke file, there are many offensive ones. Ones that used to be offensive but have gotten even worse given the progress of time. Do not view these jokes if you can be offended by written material in any way.

Bryn:
Niklaus Wirth has lamented that, whereas Europeans pronounce his name correctly (Ni-klows Virt), Americans invariably mangle it into (Nick-les Worth). Which is to say that Europeans call him by name, but Americans call him by value.


PRICELESS!! Thanks Rich.
