Though I am a short person, I walk mercilessly fast. I cannot deal with slow walkers, and especially teams of slow walkers that insist on spreading themselves out across the entire lane of the sidewalk. Thankfully, this Japanese guy figured out a genius way to get slow walkers to move out of the way. In Japan, anyway. If I tried this in New York I’d probably get punched in the face. [YouTube]

O.B. tampons feels really bad about that whole tampon shortage thing you had to go through a few months back, so they’ve whipped up an apology just for you. Nah, girl, I mean, just for YOU. Call it their Ruben Studdard “Sorry For (2004)” — girl, do not underestimate this jam — but O.B. has made a really special sorry for y’all, featuring a Coldplay-ian guy wearing (yes, really) white pants singing a song specially made to order. Do it. I dare you. [O.B. Tampons]
Maybe you’ve heard about how one of TV’s funniest shows, NBC’s “Community,” has been shelved for the remainder of the fall season, put on hiatus indefinitely because of poor ratings. Cast members and fans of the show are worried that the mid-season yank may mean the show is never coming back, and are rallying like never before to throw their support behind Joel McHale, Chevy Chase and the rest of the crew attending Greendale Community College. Some of the more vocal fans — the guys over at College Humor — went so far as to team up with the cast to make this funny commercial for the faux school. [College Humor]

Fresh off the news that women are getting the short shrift when it comes to representation in film, we hear that our fave YouTube comediennes, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobsen — aka the funny chicks behind “Broad City” — are in talks to produce their very own pilot for FX. So maybe things are changing around these parts. If you haven’t seen “Broad City”‘s particular brand of off-beat, lady-centered comedy, check out this clip, featuring fellow Upright Citizens Brigade alums Kristen Schaal and Amy Poehler. [YouTube]
Being single in a sea of relationships can be annoying sometimes, but that’s why it’s important to keep a sense of humor about it. Thankfully Beth Griffenhagen does just that–in haiku form, no less. Her new book Haiku and the Single Girl captures the hilarious moments of dating and singledom in short 5-7-5 bursts of brilliance. For instance:
I saw an old flame
And he looked. Just. Terrible.
Schadenfreude for sure! We suggest you pre-order it immediately! [$9.01, Amazon]
Ever wonder how quirky German film director Werner Herzog might interpret your favorite children’s books? Wonder no more! He’s taken it up on himself (okay, okay, not Herzog, but a Herzog-alike) to give pitch-perfect analysis of classics like Winnie the Pooh and A Christmas Carol. Here, “Herzog” explains Where’s Waldo. “At the ski slopes, I find him almost immediately,” he says. “At the sea, I hunt until I am mad.” As you do. [YouTube]
