How, oh how did we miss Bad Lip Reading?!?
If you too are new to the adored and self explanatory Internet sensation (which is even better than one might expect) then go to their site now and prepare to be overjoyed.
Whether playing an overly excited Tapas waiter or a dad that’s really into soda, he manages to convey complete characters within a few seconds.
Anyone that says they can’t stand kids obviously hasn’t spent any time actually talking to them, because they are full of awesome nonsensical stuff to say.
Case in point: Bad Kid Jokes, a tumblr of jokes made up by kids. Some examples:
Why did the barn cross the road?
Because all the other animals were pooping on the other side
I have a butt
Sir we all have butts
Seinfeld ended on a high note, when it was still universally loved and quoted and before it spiraled into mediocrity as so many shows can.
Or so I thought. The latest twitter darling account @seinfeldtoday makes me wonder. Maybe the show could have stayed relevant and hilarious for years.
At the very least the humorous imaginings of modern day episodes make me miss it.
Here are a couple choice examples:
@SeinfeldToday: George can’t tell if his boss is being sarcastic in an email. “There should be a different font, Jerry!” Kramer watches too much cable news.
@SeinfeldToday: George breaks up w/ his gf (Gretchen Mol) because she’s ruining his Netflix suggestions w/ her shows. Newman claims to be part of Anonymous.
We all know Maru, we all love Maru. Has there been a more lovable pet that’s not your own?
The round tabby with a penchant for wearing boxes and bags is even more lovable when you show videos to your two year old who giggles uncontrollably.
Ok, some of you are going to find this Korean club hit annoying. I’m not even sure why I’m liking it so much. It’s undeniably catchy (just try walking away from it with Heeey sexy lady not playing in your head). Plus the over the top video, complete with awesome silly dance is quite compelling.
It’s apparently becoming a viral sensation (so, you’ve likely already heard about it from your mom or co-worker) and artist PSY says he’d love to take his horse dance to the states. We should be so lucky!
Refinery 29 is to thank/blame for introducing me. Oh, And Van loves it. Like really really loves it.
If anybody downloaded the PDF of The Conservative Teen, please let me know. I really want to read the article about “Ronald Reagan: Our First Black President?” and “Why Abstinence Works & How It Can Work for You!”
In the face of much mockery, the site seems to have been taken down. Sad face.
I’ve said for years that I could listen to Werner Herzog talk about anything for hours… Much to my surprise and delight, listening to Werner Herzog talk about anything has become an Internet trend!
The latest? He discusses the amazing stupidity of chickens.
Who would have thought that the French Vogue editor would have such a great sense of humor and devotion to doing a Wham! parody with such conviction?
Anna Wintour wouldn’t be caught dead (and is less charming for it).
I also might be partial because I love this song and was even George Michael from the same video for Halloween a few years back.
If you’re trying to get your son into poetry and ee cummings isn’t doing it, try a classic Timothy Jefferson.
Perhaps To Leonardo, With Love – the most touching poem to use the phrase “villainous neck” and “Remember that time we ate pizza?” that I have had the honor of reading.
