October 12, 2009


For those that came in ย late to the Internet, here’s an online museum of those annoying banner ads from the late 90s.

Others – If only you’d clicked. Imagine.

    Haha.. Now I so wish I had clicked on one of those iPhone banners..!

    I made an algorithm to win a nobel prize too – – but the White House rejected it.

    Some of your earlier posts were funnier. My apologies if I didn’t get the joke.

    Loud insane laughter is not a bad way to break silence (you risk being escorted out of office by security, which is not so bad really. Any OOO is good)!

    Loved it! Welcome back Mr. Iyer ๐Ÿ™‚

    Err- Jai. I know this was supposed to be funny, but I don’t quite like the monkey reference since he’s Black.

    Word is out on the street that the Afro-American-Right-Wing is baying for Jai Iyer’s blood for using the word Monkey along with Obama. They even claim that Obama’s drawing closely resembles a monkey.

    Maybe you should add a disclaimer: “Any resemblance to monkeys living or dead is purely evolutionary ?”

    Going by the comments, Bhajji and you get into trouble for similar things. ๐Ÿ˜€ This is good stuff. But I laughed waaaay harder at autobot.

    It is way too funny!

    The Nobel prizes are, collectively and individually, rather a sad joke! I have many reasons to feel that way; this is not the place to go into all that. So your joke is about a joke and is a joke, what?

    Very Smart! ๐Ÿ™‚

    satire was good …. when i read the word “monkey” i knew it would steal the thunder ๐Ÿ˜›

  17. October 13, 2009 7:40 pm

    Ha..ha..ha.. and all I get is lot of spam and virus when I click the monkey. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Too good!

    Funniness. “PRIZE INSIDE!”, it seems. And yes, like Doc Saheb, it is a joke, about a joke, you are a joker, which? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    What a scam! I totally lost respect for the Peace Nobel. Funny cartoon, that.

    For fun sake it is awefully fine but real NOBELcomes from great leaps forward in a few directions.Nobility derived from peace is greatest and you have touched it tangentially.Fine…..very fine.
