Entertaining nodes

Some nodes are really entertaining to read, because of the merit of the content, or because the responds that go beyond, I believe, the expectation of the OP. In the latter case, my reaction doesn't go towards to the OP, in that, I'm not laughing at him/her. It's just so, well, entertaining, without any intent of insulting or anything else. Below is what I've found so far, in no particular order:

I'll place this list on my homenode, and I think I can expand it from yours. So I'd like to know what everyone's list of entertaining nodes, ones you find amusing from any aspect, ones you'd like to read over and over. This is one of things I do here when I have nothing else to do, no question to ask or answer, and no nodes to vote on. That is, entertaining myself.

Open source softwares? Share and enjoy. Make profit from them if you can. Yet, share and enjoy!

      I was so entertained by your second choice I went into print about it - and someone decided to frontpage it. ;-)

    I think cog's reply about learning Portuguese is the funniest thing I've read in years. I was laughing so hard, I had tears streaming down my face.

    But I think my all-time most entertaining node is Here is a commercial obfuscator. Watch how diotalevi demolishes it in a most elegant manner.

    I liked when Dominus came back after a year and a half to let someone know that he'd done extensive research and disagreed with the parent node's post. A year and a half.
