A Fish, A Barrel, and That Other Thing You May Have Heard Of

One of the anniversaries that wasn't marked here while I was off in Eeyore's Gloomy Place or whatever: ten years ago on June 8th, Suck.com announced it was going fishing and never came back, leaving a generation of bastard web children to grow up wondering who their dad was. Then would've been as good a time as any to link to Matt Sharkey's thorough history of the site from 2005 (which does a very good job at reminding us why a single 200 pixel column of low-bandwidth snark was revolutionary in 1995), but doing it in something resembling a timely manner would've actually required making a proper effort.
