Filter Descriptions

The Miguel Filter
This filter is based on the popular internet comedian known only as "Miguel" who runs the hit Fat Chicks in Party Hats page.
Originally suggested by Christian.

The Pirate Filter
Ahoy there, me hearty mateys. Now ye too can experience tha web through tha eyes of a fierce swashbuckling brigand. ARR!

The XCOOL Filter
This will turn just about any page into the coolest page on the internet. ARR!

The JeffK Filter:

Thanks to monkey@grignr.abelgratis.com and EdgeBlur@yahoo.com for the suggestions!

The Goth Filter
Who said the web had to be a cheery place? Thanks to the latest in web filter technology you can view the dark, twisted, angsty reality behind any site. Warning: Dan and Laurie take no responsibility if you lose your will to live as a result of using this filter.

The Asia Filter
Anybody who has seen a kung fu movie knows that everything is funnier when it's translated badly from another language into English. This filter uses the latest in high-end natural language processing algorithms to translate every page into Cantonese, from Cantonese into Japanese, and from Japanese back into English. The result is a filter as funny as it is technologically impressive.

The Superhero Filter
Holy bat-computer, superman. Ka-pow! Deep within their secret hideout Ethel and Dan hatch a fiendish plot to subjugate the entire web to their will. Who can save us? Is there hope?
Probably not.

The Thaadd Filter
Almost Ready - This filter will, by impersonating, make anythingie, the wunderfulley broken English, of Laurie's current roommate (and Dan's ex-girlfriend) Thaaddios, you read more interesting. Oh. Um. Ok.
This filter is an eternal work on progress as Laurie learns, more of the speech patterns, of this rare creature.

The Herbert K Filter
Yo. This wack filter be made to change tha mothafuckin' internet to sound like tha greatest columnist tha onion has ever known. This be preliminary and shizit. Word is bond.

The Ruggie Filter
Almost Ready - Actually this one would probably be better described as a combination ruggie/stupid in-joke filter. It emulates some of the best ruggies ever to hit the Minneapolis Citadel scene. Umm... of which Dan was none, of course. Heh heh heh.

The Festie Filter
Just started. Twenty crowns for the king! I dare say, old bean. Bloody hell! This year we verily will put on a production of Ralph Roister Doister in our theatre.. Huzzah!!
(Dan's note: I felt so dirty typing that. I think I have to go scrape myself raw with steel wool now.)

The Existential Filter
Very Preliminary. Experience the web through the eyes of a black turtleneck-clad French existentialist subsisting on a diet entirely of black cigarettes and coffee.
Actually, I'm starting to think this filter sounded like a better idea to me when I thought of it. Unless I come up with something funnier and/or better soon for it I think it's going to be nuked.
