Oh, Where Has All the Flash Gone?

Now that video is all the rage, Flash seems to have been sidelined to banner ads, games, and corporate websites.
I miss the days of silly, homemade, whimsical* Flash animations with very little purpose. While I am not a big fan of all Flash websites in which most of the time I immediately exit, I do like fun Flash.
Where have all the silly Flash animations gone? Are art students and high school students too broke to buy the education version Flash from Adobe and don’t have a crack code? Are they too deep into WOW/Wii/XBox/etc and celebrating 4:20 to create their own Flash silliness? Are they too used to the Facebook & MySpace communities to put up their own websites?
Do you have a favorite fun Flash that has been created in the last 2 years?
