There I fixed it!

My new favorite site! Celebrates epic Kludges!! What is kludge you ask? Read below:

Kludge – An ill-assorted collection of poorly matching parts, forming a distressing whole.” -Jackson Granholm Datamation Magazine February 1962

From the There I fixed it! website: "There are as many sources for the word Kludge as there are jury-rigged mailboxes in the mobile home parks of America. Whether the source of the word is Gaelic, German, or Naval Acronym, we know them when we see them, and on this web site, we celebrate these iconic images of mankind’s eternal struggle to hammer square pegs into round holes (with duct tape.)"

Check this site out. It is good for a laugh, or perhaps a fix-it-yourself idea. Some the ideas are ingenious, others are just plain hilarious!

You can submit your own kludge to:
