People With Too Much Extra Money

I see this all the time. Some picture, or Flash cartoon, or something makes it's rounds of the Net, sure, fine, haha, it's funny, or cute, or disgusting, or what have you. Sure, no biggie. But then, and this is the part that gets me, somebody puts up a URL that links to only that one thing.

Someone had to actually put down money to register this name, go through the motions of pointing it somewhere (one assumes that in these cases, they aren't buying separate hosting, but rather pointing it specifically elsewhere), just to show this pic/cartoon/whatever. Nothing better to spend that cash on? They aren't even putting up ad banners in the vain hope that they'll get a few cents on click-thrus.

Perfect examples:
www.badgerbadgerbadger.com - That damn 'badgers, badgers, badgers, mushroom' song/cartoon
www.limecat.net - The pathetic cat with the carved lime-peel helmet
www.tubgirl.com - easily one of the most disgusting pix on the net (I'm not kidding, don't click it. Especially if you are at work. Or at home. Or are breastfeeding. Or if you have any small children. Or large children. Or parents. Or a pet. Or you are sick. Or well. Or breathing. You've been warned.)

As if the 'Net wasn't cluttered with enough other useless random stuff...and especially as if we haven't all seen them already.
