Eighties sitcoms are funny, but what isn’t funny: Kirk Cameron’s stance on homosexuality. So some of his fellow ’80s child stars took a stand against Kirk and formed Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron (CCOKC). Cast members from “Out of this World,” “Adventures in Babysitting,” “Mr. Belvedere” and more are speaking out about Cameron’s vile ways. Because not all former child stars are created equal.

Lately it seems like the politicians and pundits with the strongest opinions about women’s reproductive health all have one thing in common: a penis. This video, starring Nick Offerman, Tim Meadows, and Judd Nelson, paints a hilarious — and terrifyingly accurate — picture of the current discourse surrounding women’s access to birth control and abortion. Here’s a quote from Nick Offerman’s character that sums it up perfectly: “What qualifies me to be an expert on women’s reproductive health? I’m a 59-year-old man. And late middle-aged men know the most about everything.” [Funny Or Die]
… 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 Got A Job” is about a woman who just got hired as an art teacher even though she hates children — and while she’s bitching about kids, the camera pans down to where a baby is latched to each boob. It’s shocking only because seeing a woman breastfeeding her child on camera is shocking — after two seconds of shock, it’s just “oh, she’s feeding the kids.” The video isn’t even that funny. Overall, it’s not a big deal.
At least, not to me. Funny Or Die thought differently. According to The New York Times, Ahna Tessler’s video was flagged as “obscene” — perhaps by a moderator — and not published. But what’s really a headscratcher is that her previous Funny Or Die videos were all taken down and her account with the site was suspended. Keep reading »
Funny or Die’s drunk retelling of “The Night Before Christmas” is like no other Christmas tale you’ve heard. Drunk Allan McLeod recites the poem while Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes attempt to act it out. It looks like someone dipped into the Christmas brandy early. [Funny or Die]
Cinderella, she’s got a problem — a sex addiction problem. You wouldn’t think it, with all the crinoline and lace she’s always wearing, but the girl’s got it bad. And it’s time that the rest of her fairytale friends did something about it — so they’ve staged an intervention. But … it’s not going so well. It seems Cinderella is a real attention whore.

Calling all Stieg Larsson fans! Check out the new Funny Or Die video, “The Girl With The Tramp Stamp Tattoo.” Doe-eyed Emma Roberts stars as a trashy, lush version of Salander (complete with a “Breathe” tramp-stamp) and “True Blood” hottie Joe Manganiello plays a bespectacled Blomkvist. For all those unfamiliar with Manganiello, a Google search of “Joe Maganiello shirtless” is required. You can thank me later. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »
Professionally speaking, I’ve always been a bit on the fence about Katherine Heigl. As a rom-com fan, I am literally incapable of not watching “27 Dresses” when it comes on TV. I liked “Knocked Up,” though I certainly took issue with its abortion avoidance. And “Life As We Know It”? That sappy movie about two hot single people who hate each other who suddenly become guardians to their baby goddaughter and then fall in love? Cried. But “The Ugly Truth,” an abhorrent movie for which Hollywood owes the world a huge apology, and Heigl’s seemingly smug attitude in real life, have made me sort of meh on her as a whole. But thanks to this video from Funny Or Die, I am now a Heigl fan. Now, I happen to like balls – i.e. testicles — but Heigl’s adamant distaste for “crotch plums” made me laugh anyway. [Funny Or Die]
The best moment of the 2012 campaign so far happened when Herman Cain assured American voters that for all the women who have claimed he sexually harassed them, there are thousands who have not. See? He might have been accused of sexually harassing some women, but come on, people, he hasn’t sexually harassed all women. Give him a break! [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
I know this Funny or Die video is supposed to be a spoof about how often Ryan Gosling does the quiet, brooding thing in his movies, but I am not laughing. I find it impossible to laugh and orgasm at the same time though, so that probably explains why. [Funny Or Die]
