Pataphor
Another post about something someone said on Metafilter. In the context of a discussion about pataphors, which are apparently an extension of Jarry's idea of pataphysics (the natural extention of metaphysics) someone postedx a link to this. It is flash. It might have sound, I don't know, but it's safe for work and very cool.

I can't really think too much about pataphysics (someone suggested that string theory was pataphysical) but I think I like pataphors. I think. They remind me a lot of Calvino's If on a winter's night a traveler, which was partially a boring, self-obsessed rant and partially one of my five favorite books.
