We asked you to vote for your favourite stuff on the web last year. You did in your droves. Here are the best things on the internet as voted for by you, YOU, the b3ta readers ...


1. Weebl & Bob (Jonti Picking)
Jonti's pie-based animations stormed the net in 2002 and got him a daily spot on MTV. There's even talk on him coming front of camera for a new comedy show.

2. B3ta (Rob Manuel, Denise Wilton, Cal Henderson and everyone else)
Yay. We're the second best website in the whole world. Thanks. You cunts.

3. Rathergood (Joel Veitch)
Joel's kitten animations have been this year's All Your Base Are Belong To Us. This lead to animation work for Channel 4 and a rumoured children's comedy show.

Home Star Runner - best known as the home of the Strong Bad animations. They're great.

Something Awful - yank b3ta with excellent photoshops.

1. Weebl and Bob (Jonti Picking)
Jonti's first pie animation received the most votes. It's the original and still the best.

2. Kitten Band - Independent Woman (Joel Veitch)
Indie band Elbow recorded a cover version of the Destiny's Child track, Independent Woman. They used xylophones. Joel made an animation. He used kittens.

2. Patrick Moore Plays the Xylophone (Jonti Picking & Rob Manuel)
In equal 2nd place comes Rob & Jonti's attempt to get a UK number 1 record with cranky astronomer Patrick Moore. They are still hoping.

Strindberg and Helium - the perverse genius of teaming a gloomy Swedish playwright with a happy little balloon.

Xiao Xiao - the evergreen delights of a kung fu stick man.

Star Wars 'deleted scene' - exceptional work from Chicago Dave.


1. George W Bush - US President
2. DJ Hetz Hudson - spammer

1. Argentinian team with handbags (Carl Baldwin)
Website designer Carl Baldwin created the Argentinian team with handbags picture. It went round the world. It ended up as the front page of the UK tabloid The Mirror winning them "Picture of the Year" in industry awards.

2. Chicago Dave's Pics (Dave Barton)
Dave Barton ruled the web with his timely photoshopping. The most popular images were Queen Mum Yoda, Cherie Blair/Myra Hindley and Queen in England Strip. The secret of his success? He used to be a "new media idiot" for major news agency.

3. Every Time You Masturbate, God Kills a Kitten (fark forums)
This picture, which first appeared on Fark, was so popular that the kitten is now named "Cliché Kitty". And they now refer to porn with "protect your kittens."

George Formby Rocks - brilliant work from board regular Rogan Josh.

2. Female or Shemale (Rob Manuel)
Who could dislike a game based on correctly identifying ladyboys? Certainly not you, apparently.

3. Name That Beard (Rob Manuel & Jonti Picking)
The beard: a sign of masculinity, of strength of character and, it seems, of good clean fun. Can you match the beard to the face?
