The Dilbert Blog is by Scott Adam, although it isn’t about Dilbert. It’s about Scott Adam. For example, from October 24, 2005:
My blog is the only writing you’ll see from me that doesn’t first go through a professional editor. That means plenty of grammar and punctuation wrecks for you to enjoy. I blame the public education system.
The only reason I dare writing this blog is because I have absolutely no sense of embarrassment. Most people would be horrified at the prospect of proving their ignorance to thousands of readers. My attitude is more along the lines of “I have thousands of readers? Cool.”
I’m not a regular reader of the Dilbert comic, but I’ve added this blog to my bloglines list of feeds. His style is similar to Dave Barry‘s, except he seems more honest.
My 4 year old daughter learned knock-knock jokes about a year ago, a never-ending source of entertainment for her; she loves to make them up:

The Empire Strikes Back as a 2 minute animated gif.
I can’t imagine the effort to do something like that. I wish I was rich so I could waste my time on stupid stuff (I mean stupider stuff).

Here’s an application that derives your site’s worth based on Technortati data, which tracks what sites link to others in “real time”. The more sites that link to yours, the more your site is worth.
That’s in American dollars! That’s like $200,000 Canadian.
