OK, the top ten entries in "Fun" are all dance related, so I can sneak in a non-dance one without being made to stand in the corner in a knitted dunce's hat.

"Knitted," I hear you say: "Where did that come from?" The answer is the only website that actually makes me laugh out loud and sometimes even cry. "Threadbared" is an extraordinary idea - searching the archive of DIY clothes patterns for material for a comedy website.

The 50's is not a bad place to start:

We combined our fondness for vintage sewing patterns with our need to be bitchy and mean and cruel. But since we are nice girls, too nice for that kind of behavior towards real people we can now take our frustrations out on guys like him:

Enjoy!

Now I've found a good use for my bizarre, '70s knit & crochet pattern books.

Thanks, Stuart, I've rarely laughed so much for such an extended time.
