Onion everywhere

08Mar08

There’s this collection of young scamps called “Improv Everywhere“, and they do funny random things in places that funny randomnesses are not supposed to happen in. (As opposed to a tiny blackbox theatre.)

Sometimes I see funny, random things in the news or on the internet that look like they came from The Onion, but did not. Like this. And this. Which made me think:

What if that was “planted,” like Improv Everywhere? As in, “instead of putting comedy material on my blog, or making a video for SuperDeluxe, I’m just going to embed my comedy in the zillions of places on the internet that accept user input, but are not inherently funny.”

Like some sort of web2.0 comedy “layer” on the normal internet. Maybe people are already doing this?
