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 video, Courtney reads some of these super sexy sensual tweets aloud in her most super sexy sensual voice. On a related note, I feel icky. [Funny Or Die]
Dida Ritz and Latrice Royale of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” brilliantly recreate Nene Leakes and Sheree Whitfield’s famous falling out on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Some of the most creative shade throwing I’ve seen in a while. Next episode suggestion: Sheree’s infamous fight with the party planner, Anthony. I think Dida can serve up some “Who gon’ check me boo?” realness. [WOW]
America’s favorite flippered himbo, Ryan Lochte, proves he has a sense of humor about himself and the ability to read a teleprompter in this Funny Or Die video about peeing in pools. I’m a little nervous about his upcoming book, 50 Shades of Yellow, though. Sounds too kinky for me. On another note, where can I get one of those “JEAH!” hoodies? Need. [via Tres Sugar]
I was never really sure what it was about Selena Gomez that got Justin Bieber all in a tizzy. But it seems that maybe she’s kind of funny? Here she is starring alongside Nick Kroll in a funny parody of softcore S&M hit Fifty Shades of Grey entitled “Fifty Shades of Blue,” in which she falls for a disgusting painter named Carl Blue. [Funny Or Die]
Oh my god, file this one under “Spoof Videos That I Wish Would Become Real Life” — it’s “The Wire: The Musical,” featuring original cast members Michael K. Williams as “Omar,” Andre Royo as “Bubbles,” and Sonja Sohn as “Kimma,” singing and dancing about drug dealing, shooting heroin, and busting caps! Seriously, why can’t this work? I would happily drive to Baltimore for opening night. (On another note, who ate Stringer Bell?) [Funny Or Die]
This video spoof from Funny or Die, starring Kate Beckinsale, Judy Greer, and Andrea Savage as Republican women who want government out of their banks and schools, but in their vaginas, is, frankly, hilariously sad because of how true it is. [Funny Or Die]
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. [Funny or Die]
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 »
