Some great ideas deserve more than one blog post: they demand a whole single topic blog. These are five such great ideas, and they're all totally off the wall. Wacky concepts and single topic blogs go together like Tom Selleck, waterfalls and sandwiches. Do we really need hundreds of images of each of these things? Probably not. But carrying the joke too far is part of the fun! It's up to you to decide which of our nominees did it best in 2010.
There's never been a more self-explanatory single topic site than Album Tacos. It's full of inexplicably hilarious pics of tacos photoshopped or illustrated into famous album covers. Some of them are truly clever, and others are sublime in their absurdity. And every last one has a taco, which most professional art critics tend to see as a plus.
Captchart isn't about art as much as luck. You know those annoying little boxes that ask you to type a word to prove you're human? Well, sometimes they give you word combinations that are elegant or just really funny. That's what Captchart is all about. It's a single topic blog that transforms Captcha word combinations into illustrations and comics. Some phrases are interpreted more literally than others, while some are puns. Nearly all of them are LOL hilarious, though.
Oprah is probably the most powerful woman in the media, so it's no surprise that people's reactions to the final season of her hugely popular show have been ... uh, emotional, to say the least. Faces of the Last Season of Oprah captures the weeping, screaming, cheering faces of Oprah and her audience. These are some of the most absurd still frames you'll find anywhere, and I guarantee you'll never find people who throw their hands up and cry more than an Oprah audience. Yikes!
How many pictures can there possibly be of owls who look like they've just woken up after a night of heavy drinking? Way, way more than you think, and Hungover Owls is the site that collects them all. It's brilliant, because once you see the photos and realize that these magnificent birds naturally make perfect hangover faces, you can never unsee it! It's guaranteed to make your next trip to the zoo a lot more fun.
Selleck Waterfall Sandwich? Every image on this blog includes actor Tom Selleck, a sandwich of some kind, and a waterfall. Why? Not a clue, but the randomness of this meme was enough to make it a Webby Award-winning gigantic single topic blog that spawned copycats. The best detail: every entry has a featured sandwich. If Tom Selleck doesn't make you hungry, the sandwiches sure will.
Honorable Mention: Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber
