I'm sure you all laugh as much as I do, and admire as much as I do, some of the things that get written on this forum. This is a thread to celebrate and share things you think everybody should read. Now there are so many threads people can't always keep up with all of them, so please post not just the quote but the link (type the post number into the link box) so that interested parties can follow it back to source.

I'll start you off with one that made me giggle this morning on the QI Lists forum, in 'What are you reading today?'

This is incredibly dorky, but it's what I was looking for when I just went posting in an unrelated, four-year-old B-series thread.
