Weird Wide Web

A visit to the Museum of Depressionist Art.

A selection of Educational Games.

The noxious, such as "Ethnic Cleansing"
...a racist computer game developed by Resistance Records, an underground music label specializing in Neo-Nazi and white supremacist bands. In the game, the protagonist (the player can choose either a skinhead or a Klansman) runs through a ghetto murdering black people, before descending into a subway system to murder Jews. Finally he reaches the "Jewish Control Center", where Ariel Sharon, Prime Minister of Israel, is directing plans for world domination. The player must kill Sharon to win the game.
The saccharine, such as "Christian Founders"
You control Uncle Sam as he traverses buildings, stairs and even patriotic drums! Along the walls are paintings of America's Christian founders. Be sure to examine the ones with Gold Frames. Lesson list includes: Before Independence , Independence , Christianity in Early American Society, Christianity of The Founders, Christianity in Government, Patrick Henry an, Samuel Adams, John Witherspoon, George Washington, John Adams, James Madison, Delegates of New England States, Delegates of Middle States, Delegates of Southern States, The Deist Question
And one genuinely thought-provoking and disturbing one September 12 [Free On-line game, swf Plugin Required]

And for those of us who are constantly being e-mailed by people wanting to offer us $25,000,000, there's the Nigerian Scam Reply Generator. For more harmless fun taunting the sammers, see Scamorama. I particularly like the Chthlhu themed reply. Ftaghn!
