I've been into the Monty Python type stuff since I was a kid and my own sense of humour can be very surreal at times. For example, I was the only one I know who found a local "Dementia Awareness Week" funny (yes, I know dementia's a horrible disease, it's just the concept I find amusing). I'm also a huge fan of Bill Bailey. I don't know if anyone here's into it, but I'd really like to share the address of possibly the funniest website I've ever found:

www.cyriak.co.uk

The guy who runs it is a hugely talented young English animator based in Brighton. CockneyRebel might appreciare some of his stuff, particularly one of the t-shirts he's designed. One of his animations was a big hit on youtube recently (and rightly so). Here's the address if anyone's interested:

I hope someone here enjoys this. Does anyone else have any favourite surreal sites?

Very good idea! I'll become cyriak dependent now. The beetle transporting the turd in You Tube really funny! We should have more of this.
