I was working on a design for a client's website but was feeling uninspired. Sometimes when the creative muse is not cooperating, it helps too look at good design in hopes of firing off a spark. So I Googled "cool websites" to see what came up. One link I clicked on was "Cool Web Site Ideas." It wasn't about design so much as concepts. I looked down the list "Men who look like old lesbians" "Wedding Speech generator website" "My private hire." My eye stopped at "Tapeworm at the toilet bowl."

This website tells the story of one guy's attempt at killing a tapeworm inside of his intestines.

As sickening as it might sound, he crafts his story in a very amusing and entertaining way, with cartoonish-graphics, and very creative writing.

Wha? I was curious and my business partner and I joking call her unborn and yet to be named baby "The Tapeworm" since she is constantly hungry. As grossed out as I was at some points, it is so freakin' funny and the illustrations are wonderful that I read it all the way to the end. Though I may never eat meat again...

But will it cure you of serving haggis, which looks quite a bit like a tapeworm...

Never! Haggis is cooked and does NOT look like a tapeworm. You are just like yanking my chain. You like it, admit it!
