New Friday IT Fun

Our new Web editor Chris Paoli loves to scour the Web looking for nutty stuff. As his boss you'd think I'd object such a waste of time, but Chris cleverly turns this surfing into a weekly feature he calls Friday IT Fun.

Last week he found a few doozies, including a cartoon depicting the darker side of Steve Jobs, an Onion story mocking BP paying Google to suppress anti-BP Web sites and a goofy take on Ralph Macchio's flagging career. Friday IT Fun is worth checking out each and every week.
