Drag Queens Endorse Anti-Gay Chick Fil-A, Hilariously

Chick Fil-A is kind of a conservative fast food company that, besides closing every Sunday to observe the Lord's day, has also generously donated to anti-gay groups in the past. But should that stop a bunch of drag queens from enjoying a bunch of delicious fried chicken? Hell to the no. That's why this Wilso…

The “Eastbound & Down” / “Downton Abbey” Mash-Up You Were Waiting For

Could there be two worlds set more far apart than that of party monster baseball player Kenny Powers and the genteel universe of butlers, maids and secret eavesdropping at Downton Abbey? And yet! When the two come together, something more than magical occurs. It'll have you wondering why it took so long for someone to…

Joey Shows Regular Guys How to Look Like Ryan Gosling

Sorry Amelia, but Joey might actually be better than Ryan Gosling. For one, he's a regular guy that's not off running around with Eva Mendes. And two, he's really, really, really funny -- even if he does have the "effeminate jaw line of Hilary Duff." Either way, this is a video you -- and every…

Girl Talk: What I Learned From Sucking At Improv

A couple years ago I was feeling lost. I had graduated college, had some money saved up, and I wanted to try something new. I'd been writing a humorous fashion blog for awhile and I'd been toying with the idea of taking the leap from writing funny things to performing funny things. Tina Fey ha…

In Which 7th Grade Facebook Drama Becomes High Art

If any of your Facebook friends are tweens — or adults with the emotional maturity of tweens — then you've surely noticed some drama going down in wall posts or status updates. A group called the Navy Seals of Comedy noticed, too, and thought the intensity of Facebook exchanges would translate well to a live…

The Dream Of The 1890s Is Alive In Portland

The new season of "Portlandia" is just as funny as the first -- if not more. In season one, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein noted that Portland is just a little bit stuck in the 1990s. But this season, the pair make fun of Portland's obsession with locavore and artisanal culture, which is exactly like…

TV Magic: Joann Chen On “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”

Our new favorite "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" contestant is Joann Chen, from Brooklyn. She's pretty good at answering questions, but she's even better at adding in strange and bewildering side commentary. For instance, a question about the use of "styptic pencils" elicited the following comment from Joann: "I wore pants today for a…

A Totally Awkward ’80s Ad For Coffee

Coffee! It's the completely safe stimulant of choice of marathon runners, football players ... and the band Heart. This totally bizarre '80s commercial from the National Coffee Association tries to convince us that rockers were mainlining coffee, not cocaine, before shows. As if! "Because coffee gives you the serenity to dream it, and the vitality…

Funny Or Die Removed Comic’s “Obscene” Breastfeeding Skit (NFSW)

... because what is more obscene than feeding your hungry children?!  I mean, UGH. I am being hyperbolic; the comedy site Funny Or Die was not. Comedian Ahna Tessler is a breastfeeding mama of twins and she submitted a skit of herself, which incorporated the breastfeeding, on Funny Or Die. The short skit called "Leah…

Men Needed A Rap About Plaid

Well, well, holy nerds, what do we have here? It appears that a bunch of bros have discovered an untapped niche -- the plaid shirt-wearing demo. And here, they rap all about their love for the ubiquitous pattern. I'll just be over here in the corner eating a P'Zone and crying on the inside. [YouTube]…

Okay, Finally, S**t NOBODY Says

The Internet has finally folded in on itself and pooped out the daddy of all Shit People Say videos: stuff that absolutely nobody in their right mind would ever say. I mean, nobody in the history of ever has actually wanted to burn a copy of a Nickelback CD, right? [YouTube]…

Oh No, It’s A Huge Group Of Girls

This video, lambasting the longstanding tradition of girls traveling in large packs to nightclubs, might not be -- in the words of the immortal Whitney Houston -- "right, but it's okay." You know the girls this video is talking about. Maybe sometimes you're even one of them. No shame. Just don't be Becky, okay? She…
