This page from TNG novel 33, Dafydd ab Hugh's Balance of Power, has what's probably my single favourite joke in a Trek novel. You'll know it when you get there.

Spoiler: But in case it's unclear...

Lazy Game Reviews connects a PS/2 keyboard to a cellphone.

And yes, it works.

We're all familiar with the King Arthur/Black Knight duel from Holy Grail, but someone has not only replaced the swords with lightsabers, but replaced the Black Knight's dialogue with Darth Vader quotes.

Watch!

Robot Wars is returning this year!

I'm not sure how many of you remember or watched Robot Wars, but I enjoyed it.

An anime ghost girl dances with two sentient shoes to the tune of "Moses Supposes" from Singin' in the Rain.

Once again, I have no idea how this happened. But it has, and it's cute enough to spend a few minutes on.

A huge LEGO contraption whose only purpose is to move tiny soccer balls from Point A to Point B in the most complicated manner possible.

A cover of "The Power of Love" that's just a little bit different.

Don't worry about the Back to the Future fanfare at the start, it's just a homage.

A Spock tribute by Melodysheep.

Perhaps a bit too much autotune, but still fun.

Star Wars fan comics in the style of Calvin and Hobbes.

I haven't seen Force Awakens yet (waiting for Netflix release), but I'm still a fan of Calvin and Hobbes.

Neil deGrasse Tyson would rather have the Enterprise than the Millennium Falcon.

A classic scene from TOS, but with a fan-made twist ending.

This involves a meme that I'm not sure everyone knows, but it's still funny.

Screencaps from some old unauthorized black and white Star Trek parody comics.

Highlights include Principal Cartwright, "Bonz" McCoy with a buzz haircut, a Guinan cameo, Krouton the Clingon (a remarkably good caricature of Koloth, you can definitely see the William Campbell in there), and Spawk "the Fonzie of the 23rd century".

Doctor Who/Back to the Future T-shirt.

Yeah, so...this exists. Huh.

Looks amusing to me.

Doctor Who has already been crossed over with everything else anyway.

Someone recreating the climax of Back to the Future 3 with toy trains.

Wait until the end for a cute bonus gag.

I'll bet most of you don't remember the Star Trek spoof from Garfield and Friends called...Swine Trek!

It's Marble Madness Day in the Link Thread!

You see, I was a major MM freak back in the day. On the NES, as I didn't get a Gameboy until much later.

A remix of the theme song.

A speedrun.

The Marble Madness portion of a student's CG creation of a number of NES classics.

And now, a completely different kind of marble madness. A musical instrument played with 2000 marbles.
