This simply amazing homage to both Charlie Chaplin and The Matrix is a brilliant piece of work by a Russian actor’s group called “Bolshaya Raznitsa” (The Big Difference). Best part? Multiple Agent Smiths!

Michael Jackson is not going to be buried or cremated but recycled into shopping bags so he can remain white, plastic and dangerous for kids to play with.
Your best MJ jokes in the comments, please!

It’s been a very long time since a video made me laugh so much that I
(a) couldn’t breath
(c) almost peed myself
Background: I have a cat, and I’m married to an engineer. This video proves that cats are all alike, and engineers are also all alike…
I’m not sure which message board this came out of, but it’s pretty dang funny. I lol’d. A lot.
If you can’t read it, it says:
No, Moslems don’t believe that Jesus was the Messiah.
Think of it like a movie. The Torah is the first one, and the New Testament is the sequel. The nthe Qu’ran comes out, and it retcons the last one like it never happened. There’s still Jesus, but he’s not the main character anymore, and the messiah hasn’t shown up yet.
Jews like the first movie, but ignored the sequels, Christians think you need to watch the first two, but the third one doesn’t count, Moslems think the third one was the best, and Mormons liked the second one so much they started writing fanfiction that doesn’t fit with ANY of the series canon.
And of course it’s the wit and wisdom of Jeremy Clarkson, the host of the ever funny Top Gear. This time around, Clarkson reviews the Honda Insight Hybrid car, and if you’ve ever watched Top Gear before, you’d know that Clarkson isn’t a fan of Hondas, and believes that they’re cars for “old people”. So, of course, this isn’t going to be one of Jeremy’s favorites. How bad is this car?
It’s terrible. Biblically terrible. Possibly the worst new car money can buy. It’s the first car I’ve ever considered crashing into a tree, on purpose, so I didn’t have to drive it any more.
That’s….pretty darned bad. The review descends into a rant about green cars as a whole, but that’s been a sticky point for Jeremy for a long time, so I guess it was to be expected. Still, the entire article is pretty funny, and worth a read.
I’ve been following the Dreden Codak webcomic for a while, and occasionally something really funky comes out of it. In this particular case, it’s a list of 42 3rd act plot twists that can, and often does, happen. The twists are arranged on a matrix, so along the top you have peripeteia (your standard plot reversal), anagnorisis (realization of things as they actually are; see the link for deeper explanations), petard hoist (done in by your own machinations), reverse macguffin (reverse driving plot element), Shyamalan (plot twist as written by M. Night Shyamalan), Double Shyamalan (double the fun of a standard Shyamalan), and deus ex machina (literally, God from the machine, where a plot device appears from nowhere to solve all the problems). Along the side, are the standard genres of fiction: tragedy, thriller, science, horror, fantasy, and mystery.
I dare you to come up with a work of fiction that fits each plot twist.
Apologies for any of these having being invented before.
- Both my parents, my aunts and uncles, myself, and all my siblings have this incurable diarrhoea. You might say it runs in the family.
- Some Jewish fellows make their way into an ancient Palestinian naval base buried OVER 9,000 feet underground. As they’re getting deeper underground they discover that they’re slowly turning to salt! Well, turns out that they were Hasidic, and that’s what happens when you mix a hacid with a base.
Yea, crap jokes, I know, but I never can find a way to make them funnier.
Yea, I know it’s a day late. Had a pretty busy Friday and in the rush of things, I kinda forgot about Nostalgia Friday. So…I know that a good number of viewers from my side of the world will remember La Linea, the strange two-minute cartoon about a line drawing and his antics. The show is Italian in origin, and 88 episodes were produced starting in 1969, so it’s WELL old. The show, as you can see from the clip above, features the line man vs his animator, and the antics that follow. Back when I was a kid and this was regularly on TV, I think there was no way of telling when one of these would appear, so it was always a delight to see one pop up on the screen.
Does anyone else remember watching these?
