During an excellent party chez asakiyume, there was a moment when csecooney looked up a YouTube documentary on the baby-shoe bronzing process, in order to satisfy everyone's curiosity.
Afterward, I asked people to come up with subjects for inappropriate YouTube tutorials. These are some of the options we invented:
How to make a shrunken head
Copperplate your enemies *
Home sex change surgery
Distillation of poison
How to graft tomatoes onto deadly nightshade
How to grow a pig in a bottle **
Creating a memorial doll of a dead child, Victorian-style, using real hair
Wallpaper travel tutorial ***
dog fur map how to ****
Home remodeling for the serial murderer
Build your own acid bath
*As seen in the Dorothy L. Sayers story "The Abominable History of the Man with Copper Fingers"
**asakiyume came up with this one, but I don't remember any other attributions; claim authorship at your own risk
***as seen in Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper," don't explain the joke, Teeny
****The actual vid would be titled "How to shave your dog's fur into a map of the world," but this is the search string that gets you there
Invent your own deeply wrong tutorials, should you so desire. I'm of the opinion that the funniest are the ones which sound like the creators are nice people who only want to share their skills with the world, and have no idea that what they're teaching is awful or illegal.
