As the Internet continues to grow and mature, we sometimes forget its humble beginnings. Web designers may look back on the 90s as the dark ages of the Internet: a time when sites decorated with dancing gifs and cheesy music littered cyberspace. Today, these sites have (for the most part) sunk into obscurity, but every once in a while, you stumble upon a web page so absurd, it either renders you speechless or sends you into a fit of laughter. Below we've collected some of the worst of the worst. Make sure you click through to get the full experience and vote for your (least) favorites! You can find more of these online abominations at Web Pages That Suck.
Burlington National UFO Center
<a href="http://www.burlingtonnews.net/burlington_ufo_center.html" target="_hplink">This site</a> is a great resource for blurry photos, pseudoscientific essays and dancing alien gifs -- you know, when you need those things.
Yvette's Bridal Formal
Yvette sells formal wear, and she lets you know it. <a href="http://www.yvettesbridalformal.com/" target="_hplink">Her website</a> is covered in a chaotic mosaic of gown pictures, MS paint drawings, and neon text. We hope the dresses are equally ridiculous. (<a href="http://j-walkblog.com/index.php?/weblog/posts/a_bridal_forum/" target="_hplink">via.</a>)
Accept Jesus, Forever Forgiven
Warning: Do not enter <a href="http://www.dokimos.org/ajff/" target="_hplink">this site</a> if you are prone to seizures. Otherwise, experience the most epically bad website background imaginable. It will be sure to have you shouting Jesus' name.
Haiti News Network
<a href="http://anselme.homestead.com/AFPHAITI.html" target="_hplink">This site</a> features a densely packed page of links to news about Haiti. Also, some gifs of women dancing because... Why not?
George Hutchins for U.S. Congress
<a href="http://www.georgehutchins.com/hutchins-4-us-congress-6.htm" target="_hplink">This</a> would be a terrible campaign website in 1998, let alone 2011. Still, we can't look away.
I Kiss You
In an effort to spread his "peace-love" and "friendship from different country," Mahir has created , <a href="http://ikissyou.org/" target="_hplink">this site</a>, warming the hearts of fans around the world "many much times." D'aww...
<a href="http://www.lingscars.com/" target="_hplink">Ling</a> wants to lease you a cheap, new car. Subtlety is not her strong suit.
Though <a href="http://www.arngren.net/" target="_hplink">arngren.net</a> is written in Norwegian, one thing is clear: you can buy a ton of random crap from them. (Beware: one NSFW gif as you scroll down)
American Beauty Border Collies
<a href="http://www.americanbeautybordercollies.com/id137.html" target="_hplink">American Beauty Border Collies</a> offers more pictures of Border Collies than anyone could ever want. It also includes <a href="http://www.americanbeautybordercollies.com/id249.html" target="_hplink">random holiday pages</a> where the text is either rotating and shimmering incessantly or just lost in the kitschy background. It's mesmerizing.
Historian of the Future
<a href="http://www.historianofthefuture.com/" target="_hplink">historianofthefuture.com</a> provides an endless supply of rainbow-colored images overlaid with incomprehensible neon jargon. If you like big words and migraines, this is the site for you!
<a href="http://www.raft.org/" target="_hplink">This</a> is what happens when rafters design a website.
Why this Japanese hospital would have a <a href="http://www.aiseikai.or.jp/" target="_hplink">seizure-inducing website</a> is a mystery. Maybe they don't have any neurologists?
With a name like <a href="http://mamascheesies.com/" target="_hplink">Mama's Cheesies</a> how can it be bad? This handmade clothing site is made nearly impossible to read by its rainbow sprinkle-esque background. At the bottom of the homepage, it requests you vote the site for top 100 handmade clothing sites. Best of luck, guys!
Images from outer space are beautiful, but they just don't translate when used as tiled <a href="http://ronoslund.com/" target="_hplink">web page</a> backgrounds. Hey at least it's under construction!
