These are the sites that somehow have made their way onto the Internet, seemingly without any sort of useful capability, and yet we can't help but visit them.

More about the Hypnotoad: "Both episodes where the Niblonians are involved are excellent. Also, the Hypnotoad while a very minor player, is genius."
