For an animated GIF that is, from all appearances, much more than the sum of its parts, feel free to visit the Blue Ball Machine (and its sibling, BBM II) at You’re The Man Now, Dog! Gaze in stupefaction as these great feats of useless engineering do…umm…something with a bunch of small blue balls.

These dainties have been around the Web for a while now, but perhaps they provide existential fodder yet to be mulled over and argued about. Could these Blue Ball Machines have evolved to this level of complexity on their own, according to the Laws of Blue Ball Mechanics, or do they provide the ultimate teleological proof of the existence of dorks? Either way, I found them both rather remarkable and thoroughly entertaining.
