    I came across this website http://www.joke buddha.com/ web/ E47/International. I'm just puzzled as to how this works? Anyone got an explanation? I've left a gap between joke and buddha but it is all one word.

      They put a HP topic page listing in an iframe.  You can see it in the page source,

      <iframe id="webFrame" noresize="noresize" src="http://hubpages.com/topics/entertainment-and-media/humor/international-humor/674" frameborder="0"></iframe>

      If you click on any of the hub titles you are taken directly to the HP site; it's not scraping, which is where a site takes the content and hosts it on its own domain (and often substitutes the Google Adsense code with its own).  It's harmless, but a weird thing to do.  They could have just linked to HP's topic page for international humor.
