Guitar Hero 2 - Super Mario Theme Mix (YouTube)
Hacked up Guitar Hero plays custom-created Mario level!

Devon's Kinda True Cully Hamner Story (Seven Hells)
I totally thought Cully Hamner was black too! I remember reading an interview or something with him where he mentioned an art school teacher who chastised his work by saying "Are you afraid to draw big lips on your black figures?"

Hilarious screengrabs from ancient Phyllis Diller routine (Lileks.com)

Make your own game boxes for imaginary Atari 2600 games! Here's one I made:
