Gone but not forgotten: the best 'dead' websites on the Internet prev next



Bubblegun.com was a comedy website created by TV's famous Mr. Biffo (well, he used to be on Teletext's Digitizer, which sort of counts.) Covering such wide-ranging topics as Rubik's Cube, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rolf Harris, the website was a frequently hilarious ode to the minutia of pop culture. It also features regular comic strips, including the hysterical The Adventures of Zombie Dave (the titular character would mumble something incredibly offensive in 'zombie talk'; leaving the reader to decipher the filth on screen.)

While often covering the same ground as Matt Caracappa's X-Entertainment, Bubblegun dispensed with anecdotes in favour of fact-based journalism. In other words, it educated you while making you laugh, and was all the richer for it. At the same time, it was gleefully silly at almost every occasion. After reading Bubblegun's Top Ten Things You Can't Imagine Tom Hanks Doing, we'll never look at the award-winning actor the same way again.

Mr. Biffo (aka Paul Rose) decided to put Bubblegun to pasture almost ten years ago. Happily, the archive remains online, for your viewing pleasure. You may also be able to find Mr. Biffo's book, Confessions of a Chatroom Freak, on eBay.
