Hysterical and insightful at the same time.
http://www.talkdesign.org/faqs/hunch/hunch.html

A few of my favorites:

IDists on ID:

We're not creationists, except for those of us who are, but the rest of us won't confirm that we're not. But if you call us creationists, we'll complain to no end.

The correct stance on issues like an ancient Earth, the common ancestry of organisms, and natural selection can be worked out later, after we've convinced the public that they should be rejecting at least one of these.

ID is a scientific theory for detecting purpose and teleology in nature. But don't ask us what that purpose is, because that's a religious question that's separate from ID.

IDists on Darwinism:

Absolutely everything wrong in society is caused by dogmatic Darwinian atheistic materialists. Including stereotyping, demonizing, and scapegoating.

Darwinists are responsible for both socialism and laissez-faire capitalism. Both racism and liberalism. Both feminism and sexism. Both animal research and the animal rights movement. And Commie-Nazism.

IDists on Philosophy:

If a living system looks well designed, it's evidence for ID. If it looks poorly designed, that's just because we have no way of knowing what constitutes good and bad design.

Afterall, we can't tell that it's bad design because we have no way of knowing what the Designer really intends. But we do know that ID will revolutionize culture, society, and law, according to what the Designer intends.

A good scientific theory like ID should be vague and ambiguous, and refuse to propose any specific details about mechanism or history. Some unspecified being "designed" something, somewhere, at some point in time, somehow, is a perfectly good explanation.

IDists on the evidence:

The fact that the laws of the universe are perfect for life is evidence for a Designer. The fact that the laws of the universe can't produce life is evidence for a Designer.

Not humor, but still really neat vidio
As they say - "At first glance it may look like a computer generated graphics, but it is a live presentation (20Mb)".

I had all kinds of trouble getting it to buffer.

Robot
A man walked into a very high-tech restaurant in a fancy hotel.

As he waited to be seated, he noticed that the Maitre D' was a robot.

The robot clicked to attention and said,
"Sir, there is a one hour wait.
And I am programmed to converse with you until a table is ready, If you please."

Intrigued, the man said, "OK."

The robot clicked a couple more times and then asked, "Sir, what is your IQ?"

The man answered, "Oh, about 164."

The robot then proceeded to discuss the theory of relativity,
Interstellar space travel, the latest medical breakthroughs, etc.

The man was most impressed. The next day he returned,
But thought he would try a different tack.

The robot again asked, "What is your IQ, sir?"

This time the man answered, "Oh, about 100".

So the robot started discussing NASCAR racing ,
the latest basketball Scores,
and what to expect the Red Sox to do this weekend.

The guy had to try it one more time. So the next day he returned.

Again the robot asked the question, "What is your IQ?"

This time the man drawled out, " Uh.....'bout 50."

The robot clicked, then leaned close and very slowly asked,

"A-r-e

y-o-u-r

p-e-o-p-l-e

g-o-i-n-g

t-o

n-o-m-i-n-a-t-e

H-i-l-l-a-r-y?"

Crossicus?
So I did a search on Dictionary.com because I wanted to know what the things are called that come out of the cross. I thought it was rather strange the first thing that came up:

Re: Robot
Perhaps the joke refers not to all dimwitcrats, but that particularly suicidal subset who wants to throw away any chance at the White House in 2008 on Hillary The Unelectable.

Heh, NASCAR, invented for people who don't understand the intricacies of professional wrestling.

goldilocks - modern version ...
Goldilocks, a little older but still still as impulsive as ever, was in northern canada when she saw a small house. Feeling a little cold, hungry and tired she went in to see what she could find. The usual three chairs, the usual three bowls of porridge, and then upstairs to bed ... but there is only one bed.

At that moment the owners return, one shouts with rage about the broken chair, one weeps for the eaten porridge and then they come upstairs. Two large male bears enter and then a small female, where they find Goldi ... the female looks and smiles "Welcome to our house, would you like to spend the night with us?" ... it is at that moment that Goldi realizes that they are bi- polar bears ...
