- The Onion on the inherent value of money. This article is a perfect example of how a good bit of satire can reveal more on a topic then any serious attempts. I especially like the end.
- The Daily Show on Global Darkening.
- The Daily Show on Hawaiian health care. (This doesn't really relate to philanthropy and only kind of relates to social change, but it's hilarious. Starts at minute three.)
- William Easterly on suing NGOs for royalties. Who says economists can't be funny?
- New Beat on using stakeholders to kill vampires. (A re-post from Easterly's blog Aid Watch.)

There are only two things I like more than comedy. It's hard to be funny and even harder to be funny about something as nuanced and complicated as philanthropy and social change, so I thought I'd feature those items that make you laugh (and make you think!) here, in my own digest of sorts. It will be periodic (or maybe never again, depending on the feasibility of this feature) and will stretch out of the blogosphere and into my other comedic interests, which are mostly SNL, the Onion and the Daily Show. I hope you enjoy.
