What's silly is that his first season was free to begin with. Now that its done, if you want to get it, iTunes and Audible.com are both charging for it.
Fortunately for you, I found it available for free right here:
I've just been listening to Episode 3 and can barely contain myself - way, way too funny.

Being the spiteful jerk I can be I took the 10 minutes it required to build a small program to send him 1,500 emails to his home address "reminding him".
That was before I learned about this new service called Beeplet:
Beelplet offers a great way for creating, organizing, and receiving reminders with notifications through Email, RSS, and soon to be SMS and Instant Messengers.

So, here's the story... I said to my girlfriend that any stupid website could
get tons of hits, simply because people are bored all the time. She said that I
was an idiot and couldn’t make a website that could get tons of hits if I wanted
to. After a long argument (mostly centered around the fact that she called me an
idiot) we made a bet
If he wins she's supposedly granting him a threesome.
Help out a brutha right here.

1) could kick my ass
2) makes me feel about an inch tall
3) probably smells like cheese.
His main site is here.
Thanks to Dan in Arkansas for pointing this site out. I'd link to Dan's blog, but he's clearly above that and isn't near the narcissist I am.

It turns out my link to a review for the Fusion razor gave credit to The Consumerist, not the original author who is now one of my favorites: Copyranter.
Check out his article about Flower, a $15,700 watch. And I quote:
Or, for about $15,699 less, you could eat a bag of skittles®, stick your finger down your
throat, throw up on your wrist, stick your cheap Timex® piece in the goo, and
wait for the project to harden.
As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as “Euro-English”.
In the first year, “S” will replace the soft “c”. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy.
The hard “c” will be dropped in favour of “k”. This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced with “f” This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.
Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent “e” in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.
By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing “th” with “z” and “w” with “v”.
During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary “O” kan be dropd from vords kontaining “ou” and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl.
Zer vil be no mor t rubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi TU understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.
Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

Recently I've been subscribing to the RSS feed of a site called The Consumerist. As a lark I decided to email them that recording and just today they posted it as an article called Customer Service from Mumble Land.
I previously referenced their site in this posting. That was likely the funniest product review I've ever read.

Yet another free online service in Beta: Remember The Milk. Its a way for you to maintain a to-do list online and have it remind you via email, text message to your cell phone, via your IM software, etc.
Doesn't do a lot for me as I've got a Blackberry and use Outlook, but for those of you without either this could be pretty helpful.
A seven year old boy was at the center of a Vancouver courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.
The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.
The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.
After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.
After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Vancouver Canucks, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
While we're on the topic, here's something hilarious.

A buddy of mine (thanks Greg) sent me some hilarious comics a couple weeks ago. Within minutes I'd found their site on the web and had subscribed to their RSS feed.
I found one in the archive that was particularly funny. Click the image for the full size, or you can view it on their website.

- I had no idea this existed, but it turns out Ricky Gervais has a music video from 1984. In this interview he clearly wasn't expecting the video to be shown and its unusual to see HIM squirm so much.
- I'm still poking around on youtube.com and found this classic from The Office (the original BBC version, of course). One of the greatest dance numbers I've ever seen. I still use a couple of these moves in public to embarass my girlfriend.
- Ricky on Letterman!
- This is a clip from his show Extra's where he's talking with Patrick Stewart (a favorite actor of mine)
- The second video podcast from the Ricky Gervais Show talking the new book about Karl
- A cat hiding from his singing!!!!
- His David Brent character discussing "the handicapped"
- Karl discusses his fridge
