Friends have dubbed me Uncle Forwardy, and this is my first step towards recovery. Every week I’m going to compile the things that made me ride my lollerskates to the lollercoaster of giddiness. If you unearth something of more-than-trifling hilarity, please send it my way. If it tickles my fancy, it shall be posted herein.

TWENTY CELEBRITY LIVES IN FLOWCHART FORM – Cracked
(more after the jump)
This is simply sheer genius. There are plenty more lives condensed and charted at the site. At least take a peek at numbers 1, 7, 9, 14.
An excerpt from this fine piece of journalism:
“All year long I’ve been trying to get my students to write what they know, and finally someone took the lesson to heart. The characters in Brian’s story feel like real flesh-and-blood human beings. His narrator—the shooter—is of course completely imaginary, but you can tell the other characters are based on people Brian knows from school.”
If it isn’t fake, it’s brilliant.
