At Palloozahead.com you can make your own... um... weird dancing thing?
Upload a picture and use your own head or use some prefab heads. Then pick out your outfit, your dance moves, and the music you want to get down to.
UPDATE: Palloozhead.com is no more. If you want to upload your head to something, try this instead.

Remember when your mom used to yell at you for putting money in your mouth? "Stop that! Money is filthy!" Well she was right (you sicko), money is filthy. And that's because it's been EVERYWHERE. The green stuff really gets around, sometimes leaving me to wonder "Where have you been, little dollar? What have you seen?"

Welcome to the first weekly installment of Flash Fridays! Originally I was planning for Flash Fridays to consist of every Web Diversions reader receiving a strip-o-gram. But I crunched the numbers and decided it wasn't in the budget. I liked the name though so I decided to keep it and just show you a new flash movie every Friday instead.
So, without further ado, I present our first flash pick, Salad Fingers: Episode One
Warning: this may severely creep you out.

Remember in the 5th grade when you learned the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum? Yeah, neither do I. Good thing there's BrainPop

For those of you who like Found Magazine, or anyone who's ever had roomates, you're going to love this site. Thanks to Cody in Atlanta, GA for bringing this site to the attention of Web Diversions.
Passive Agressive Notes is just what it sounds like: readers submit pictures of the passive agressive notes left by house mates, co-workers, and strangers. It's a combination of the humor of Overheard in New York and the surprising self recognition of Post Secret. Hey! You just got three sites for the price of one Web Diversions post!
I reccomend subscribing to their RSS feed. Hey, while you're at it, why not subscribe to Web Diversions? If you need instructions on how to do it, post a comment and I'll tell you how.
This one’s so good, I feel like Web Diversions may be blowing its wad too early.
The RYT Hospital website may be our biggest time waster yet; you could spend hours poking around this site and never see everything. The premise is a hospital with incredible futuristic medical and scientific advancements.
I don’t want to spoil the experience too much, but let me point out some highlights to make sure you don’t miss them: Use the GENOCHOICE section to make a genetically perfect baby and chat with CLYVEN, the genius mouse, after racing him in a maze.
This website is the work of Virgil Wong (http://www.virgilwong.com/), whose own site may one day warrant it’s own post on Web Diversions.

Want to make Jesus swear at your mom? Now you can!
SitePal lets people and businesses design animated speaking characters for their websites. The service is 9.95 per month, but lucky for us they have a great demo that can provide hours of hilarity.
Just go to Sitepal and select “Demo It”. Once there, you can select different characters, including different races and genders of blandly attractive people, political and historical figures like Tony Blair and Abe Lincoln, strange animals, robots, and yes, your old buddy the Son of God. You can choose from a wide variety of backgrounds; try putting Pope Benedict in your bathroom for example. You can also accessorize your characters, change the size of their features, and change their clothes.
Now comes the really fun part: making them say whatever you want. Click on the “record” button and you will have the option of adding speech by uploading an audio file (great if you want to make George W. Bush rap Lil’ Kim’s “Shut Up Bitch”), recording using a mic, calling in a recording, or using text to speech. They will say absolutely anything you tell them to.
When you’re done, you can email your message to a friend. Or just laugh your ass off.

Are you one of those people who thinks the most enjoyable part of playing The Sims is designing houses, right down to the little patch of daisies around the mailbox?
At swimmingpool.com you can design your own pool, including patio, landscaping, and fun accesories like water slides and hot tubs. You can even add a barbeque. It's all done by just clicking and dragging. A relaxing way to waste some time.
