Nominations for stupidest websites ever

Here's a site that my CIS teacher in college showed us in class as an example of everything that can be done wrong in website design. I must have laughed for four days after first being introduced to this...

http://www.tubcat.com/

WARNING - Do not click on any of the website links in the Guestbook.

If you know of a stupid website, please share as well.

No cat should ever be that fat. That's animal abuse.

Websites like that one really serve no purpose. I mean, it has no blog and he already has his own business...

"Chad Nelson's greatest interest is himself and his continuing fascination with narcissism" -- my proposed addition text for this website (sure to capture the attention of the ladies)

Thanks for Chad Nelson! Whenever I'm feeling down in future I'll go to his site and remind myself that things could be worse. Much, much worse ...

There is a reason why we elect people to make decisions for the rest of us. Because the masses are stupid. Most worthless "news" site ever.
