Cut the XLR connector off and solder a 1/4" connector on to it.

I found a whole pack of stuff like that (1/4 splitter, 1/8 splitter, 1/4>1/8, 1/8>1/4, extension cords for both, etc.) for $10 at Wal-Mart.

Why not? You risk introducing noise by using one of those adapters. It's probably a better idea just to solder the connector you want. XLR's and 1/4"s use the same kind of cord, so it's easy enough.

Orgasmic irony?

In any case, all you'll need is a XLR female to 1/4 cable like this one if your microphone looks like this at the bottom and is dynamic:

If it is a condenser microphone (they're usually capsule shaped), you will need a preamp to power the microphone, and therefore, another XLR female to XLR male cable. Connect the XLR cable to the mike and preamp, then run the XLR/1/4 cable to your computer. If you care the most about cost, Behringer's a good brand to consider. If you want nice transparency, try a Mackie mixer. If you want the best, try a tube preamp like a Blue Robbie.
