Funny Or Die Says Goodbye To Season 1 Of “Serial” With This Hilarious Spoof

Tomorrow, the final episode of "Serial" will post online and fans of the podcast are on pins and needles waiting to see how the story will end. Well, spoiler alert, but I'm pretty sure Adnan Syed will still be in jail and we'll all still be pretty unsure as to whether he killed Hae Mi…

Funny Or Die’s Street Harassment Response And The Difference Between Men And Women In Public

Funny or Die made a response to Hollaback’s street harassment video and, of course, there are buzzkills all around. People who sympathize with women say it’s making light of a serious topic, while those who don't sympathize are complaining that this isn’t what it’s really like for men. Of course it isn’t, it’s satire.

Christina Hendricks Navigates The Modern Workplace (While Making A Point About The Antiquated Wage Gap)

What happens when you stick "Mad Men"'s Christina Hendricks in a modern office and ask her to get to work? Well, she's a little confused. Where's the phone? How do you "fax" something? Who wants a martini? What do you mean she can't smoke? See, if pay disparity between men and women is going to…

Watch The Male Supreme Court Justices Hang Out In A “No Girls Allowed” Fort

With the decisions coming out of the Supreme Court these days, I wouldn't be too surprised if this was how things actually went down in the judges' chambers. Can I hang out in the fort too if I give the password? [Funny Or Die]…

Kristen Bell Is An Underpaid Mary Poppins

Hey, even Mary Poppins needs to pay the bills. Maybe if the federal minimum wage were just a little bit higher, she wouldn't have to quit! Leave it to Kristen Bell to combine musical theater and social justice. Just a $3 increase can make a living wage! [Funny Or Die]…

George R. R. Martin Was On “Gay Of Thrones”!

As far as I'm concerned, there are only two "Game of Thrones" recaps you should be interested in: 1) the in-depth episode recaps at the New York Observer and 2) the hi-laaaaarious Funny or Die series "Gay of Thrones," in which hair stylist Jonathan dishes on each episode while he works. I ca…

Watch Uzo Aduba Audition For All The Roles On “Orange Is The New Black”

Uzo Aduba, who plays Suzanne (aka "Crazy Eyes") on "Orange Is The New Black," is a remarkable actress -- so remarkable that she easily could have played any of the roles on the hit Netflix show. I mean, just watch her audition tape, which features her reading for Taystee, Poussey, Red, Alex, Norma, Nicky, Pennsatucky and, of course, Piper.

Funny Or Die Imagines What Sofia Coppola’s Live-Action “The Little Mermaid” Might Look Like

First of all, Sofia Coppola really is directing a live-action film version of "The Little Mermaid." Secondly, I don't think it's going to be that far off from what this Funny or Die spoof -- starring AnnaSofia Robb and Evan Peters -- presents. A melancholy hipster romance, set to great music with lots of late-afternoon su…

Jon Hamm Narrates “Tough Justice” Starring Lady Mary As An Ass-Kicking Cop

I find it impossible to separate Michelle Dockery from Lady Mary, her character on "Downton Abbey," and apparently neither can she. Even when playing Connie Tough, a bad ass cop in "Tough Justice" alongside Michael Chiklis -- on TNT, natch -- her hoity-toity side comes out. There is a prim and proper way to fight…

Rebecca Romijn Introduces The Hand Bra For Breast Cancer Awareness

Ah, the Hand Bra: I know it well. Granted, I am more familiar with the Rachel Krause Hand Bra than the Rebecca Romijn Hand Bra, but a Hand Bra is a Hand Bra and they all work just the same. Except Rebecca's version helps to call attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, while mine functio…

This Post Is For That One Person At Book Club Who Never Finishes The Book

When I was in a book club, I only finished the chosen books about half the time. So I feel you, Taryn Manning (yup, Pennsatucky from "Orange Is The New Black"). I really feel you. But your mistake was lying about that shit. […

Alyssa Milano’s Sex Tape Will Leave You Feeling…Informed

While most celebrity sex tapes include a lot of well, sex, Alyssa Milano gets risque and tackles social issues in the bedroom. Basically, her Funny Or Die sex tape spoof is the most genius way ever arouse interest about whats going on in Syria. I think Farrah Abraham would benefit greatly…

Spoiler Alert! Hank Reveals His “Breaking Bad” Ending

Okay, maybe not the ending of "Breaking Bad" but an ending for "Breaking Bad"  -- if the actor Dean Norris, who plays Hank Schrader, had his way. It involves a reverse-hair-growing process, a sexy babe, and a talking skateboard, so yeah, we'd totally watch this Hank-created version. Wouldn't you? [Funny or Die]…

“Bitchy Resting Face” Sufferers Unite!

Do you suffer from "bitchy resting face"? Are you constantly being asked by loved ones and strangers "what's wrong?" Do people misinterpret practically everything you say as some kind of snotty reproach? If that's the case, you're not alone. There's lots (dozens) of us suffering from "bitchy resting face," plagued by the fear that people…

Ha! Not really, but this is a reimagined glimpse back to the Postal Service's formative years. In honor of the 10th anniversary of their debut album, we have PS member Jimmy Tamborello auditioning members for the spot that would eventually be taken by Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard (all of that was just too…

Anne Hathaway & Samuel L. Jackson Have A Sad-Off

Anne Hathaway and Samuel L. Jackson both have pretty grim movies coming out just in time for the holidays. Hathaway stars in "Les Miserables" while Jackson is in Quentin Tarantino's latest "Django Unchained." In this Funny Or Die video, Anne and Sam prep for the holidays and compare notes on whose movie is more depressing.

Courtney Stodden Reads Her Own Super Sexy Sensual Tweets

Courtney Stodden, the finally legal wife of decrepit actor Doug Hutchison and current star of "Couples Therapy," a show in which I'm bizarrely invested, is one of the most ridiculous people on the planet. My favorite thing about her is the way she abuses alliteration in her Twitter posts. In the above Funny Or Die…
