Feeling Silly? There’s An App…Er…Web Site For That.

This is one of those simple but brilliant ideas whose only mystery is that someone didn't think of it sooner.

App For That is a website that lets you read, submit, and just giggle like a lunatic over hilarious variation's on Apple's "There's an app for that" App Store commercials.  (The above screen cap came up just at random, but as a lifelong Blue Oyster Cult fan, it was too good to pass up.)

You can give LOLcats-style thumbs-up or thumbs-down on any of the entries that pop up, email 'em to a friend, even propagate 'em on Facebook and/or Twitter.  The site, however, does NOT automatically filter out recycled "You Might Be A Redneck" setups, so proceed accordingly.

"But can you actually, y'know, find this in the App Store?"

Well…unfortunately, there isn't an app for that.  Yet.

(Note: the site won't work on older versions of Internet Explorer, and in fact strongly suggests you switch to Firefox, Safari, Chrome — or IE8, in a pinch.  On Blackberries, the built-in browser and Opera Lite will display the current quip, but the grading/linking code doesn't work, and you have to manually refresh the page to get new submissions.)
