I am completely enamored with this site:

Disembodied voices get all the chicks.

It works like this: The guy who runs the site has put up a bunch of truncated Japanese commercials. Anybody who registers can then write subtitles, and the resulting “foshata” goes up for the world to see. There’s a voting function that’s open to all registrants, and the results are a decent gauge of quality.

Here are some more of my favorites:

Alzheimer’s
Found this
Roof wizards
Little boy

To surf for more, I recommend using the box in the upper-right corner of the page. Clicking on “best” will show you which foshatas made in the last day have gotten the most positive votes. (There are also “week,” “month,” and “all time” options.)

Or if you just want to try your luck, you can click “random foshata” on the left-hand side. Plus in the same menu is the “plagiarizer,” which takes random subtitles from other foshatas and throws them on random videos. Good absurdist fun! “New foshata” is what you click to create your own, which you need to be registered for. Luckily it’s free and extremely quick. (We’ll see how long the free part lasts, if this site gets popular enough.)

And if you come across some foshatas by “astro-l”… yeah, that’s me. I think I might be getting addicted to it.

(Oh yeah, props to memepool for the gankage.)
