2) The History of the Tofutti Corporation (pdf). Who knew that America’s favorite health-conscious dessert came from such a crusty old guy?

3) Snowclone timeline (courtesy wikipedia).

4) The History of SWAP.avi — generally regarded as the worst thing currently available on the Internet. (rivalling tubgirl in unmitigated nastiness) Article has no pictures, thank god.

5) The CueCat: Possibly the Worst Web 1.0 Company of All Time. Hey, while we’re at it, why not have a look at the Museum of Interactive Failure.
