Shortish interesting and fun things online to print and read offline

A friend will be in hospital over shabbat and asked me if I could send her links of things she can print out this afternoon and read over shabbes. She is super smart but realized that the serious intellectual/political essays and articles she'd printed are not what she is feeling like. She wants short, fun, easy, diverting, distracting.

The catch is really that things can't be too long or too graphic-y, as that would make them less suitable for printing. This is what she says:
"Something light, non-violent, not about rape culture or #yesallwomen or #notallmen. I.e., something UNLIKE what I usually end up reading. Ideally, things that are online that I can print out. 2-3 page essays. My friend sent me two New York Times articles--one about cream cheese and one about kids growing peanuts in NYC. That sort of thing."
Please help with links!
