Need a little lunchtime levity? Then kick it over to the Ykombinator Random Startup Generator, created by Fireplace, an experimental blogging social network. It’s a send up of the buzzword-heavy, meme-laden startups culture that ensues when anyone with some Ruby or Python skills and a credit card accepted by Amazon Web Services can toss up a website, and then find an angel or incubator to keep ‘em off the streets while they iterate and inevitably pivot. It’s some good Friday fun, and feel free to share your favorites in the comments below. PlexPerfect (screenshot below) is mine (I particularly love the sock puppets).

  1. Jeremy Keith got there only 8 years earlier…

  3. I’m intrigued by the other windows open in this screenshot. A lot of stuff going on. Current events, Jeopardy practice game? Nice.
