The topic I wrote on (on GUD's behalf) was "A Perfect World", which, admittedly, was a pitch for GUD, but hopefully also somewhat edutational. There's links to each of the entries if you want to be honest about it. ;) Some interesting reading.
The other topics were "Glass on the Edge" and "Mom-in-law's Cooking", which pound for pound (what does an electron weigh? No, don't ask, yes, I can tell you. ;) ) were better fodder for "funny".
Anyway, if you're looking for distraction, there's a good bit of it there. :)
