It's this weeks Fancy Dance 2008 update time. We've had a lot of entries this week so I'm just going to link to them for the sake of my poor website layout, but before I do some news and a reminder of the prize.
What's the deadline?
We we're asked very nicely if we could extend the deadline so people could edit their videos. Nicely asking gets you 2 more weeks to make your video. This means that all entries should be in by mid November. Chop chop.
What do we win?
The winner not only gets the admiration of the masses for their dance skills but also a fanastic, one off, never to be seen again picture made especially for them, of whatever Weebl's Stuff based design. This will be printed on high quality 36"x36" canvas and will look super sweet thanks to the chaps and lady chaps at canvasrus.co.uk.
Entries for the week
Some excellent videos in there. Keep it up.
To herald the release of the 7th season of Family Guy, I have created a clever little site that lets you see the internet through Quagmire's eyes at the click of a mouse.

The first entries have started to trickle in for this years Fancy Dance. People are putting time in to the choreography this year so it's taking a while but the results are quite pleasing so far too.
First up we've got a video by Mr Quidam featuring one of the poorest Catapilar moves ever seen. This is of course actually a bonus as I'm sure you will agree.
Our second entry of the week is this group effort by Ninjabaver (that's how it's spelt, honest). A fine effort but I feel the moves could be tighter. Excellent musical choice and video editing too, but remeber this isn't about video editing skills, it's about the dance. Last years video didn't have any editing at all. Just sticks and hats.
There is talk of extending the deadline as well for this so keep your eyes and ears open for more news on this.
It's time to get fancy and dancy in your pantsy! Fancy Dance 2008 has officially begun today. You have one whole month to film your entrys before the deadline. Either post a link to your video on the forums here or email the address to me here. Remember you can enter as many times as you want, on your own or as a group.
*Has to be an original video for this years competition
*Dance must be fancy
*Dancers must be real. That's not ghetto slang by the way. We mean actual humans.
*You can dance with your dog if you want but dogs dance must also be fancy.
*Cats are cool too.
The prize this year is a one off, never to be made again 36x36 canvas print (Provided by the lovely Canvasrus) of anything Weebl's Stuff related you want. For example: If you want a picture of Weebl being sick into a bucket of hens, I will draw it for you. You and only you would be the proud, is slightly odd, owner of the one and only fabled Hen Sick image. Being sick on a hen not your bag? Well anything goes. How about a picture of Cat Face beating up a hen. If you're the winner of this years Fancy Dance it's all gravy.
Those unfamiliar with the Fancy Dance should check out last years finalists here.
It's the moment some of you have been waiting for all year. FANCY DANCE 2008. Mrs Weebl has beaten me till I admitted that it was indeed about time we ran it. Oddly enough the moment the decision had been made to start it a fantastical prize opportunity came through from the lovely chaps at www.canvasrus.co.uk, who have offered up a lovely 36x36 inch canvas upon which we will supply a fabulous one-off, Weebl's Stuff based picture, of the winners choosing.
Come on. That's a pretty nice prize. All you have to do to win is dance your ass (or indeed collective asses) off in the fanciest manner possible, upload the video to YouTube and then send me a link to it.
How long do I have?
How long do any of us have eh? You could be hit by a clown car tomorrow... Oh I see what you mean. The competition will run for 1 month starting next Monday. This week is prep week. Use it wisely and send in your video as soon as possible.
What is fancy dancing?
Fancy dancing is not flailing your arms around madly with no thought. Fancy dancing is fancy and dancey. For a good example of the fancy dance let us look at last years winners.
Anything else I need to know?
The video needs to have been specially for this years fancy dance. Any videos uploaded before today will be shunned. You can enter as many times as you like and you can have as many people in your entry as you like as well but there will only be one prize.
Oh. Thanks for reminding me. There is also an official Fancy Dance tee available in the store. Wear one and you can proclaim the fact you have stylish moves for all to see.
