Mahat the Magician Prankster is Internet famous (to the tune of about 2.4 million YouTube followers) for his seemingly endless stream of prank videos. Some of his very best are part of the Drive Thru Magic Prank Series, which documents Rahat, or in some cases no Rahat (we’ll get to that later), playin’ tricks on fast food drive-through employees. The reactions, while certainly a heart attack liability, are almost always excellent. Just in time for the Halloween season to begin, Rahat cast a moving, driving skeleton in his latest video … [via Gawker]

If you’re at all sensitive to the plights of one unhinged Justin Bieber, get ready to feel uncomfortable! As for the rest of us, who have been waiting patiently in the wings for some seemingly responsible adult to call Biebs out on his bullshit … who better to step up to the plate than Zach Galifianakis? Galifianakis’s fantastically awkward talk show-format skit “Between Two Ferns” has played host to everyone from Tila Tequila to Jennifer Lawrence, but we can’t say we ever expected the badly-behaved singer to subject himself to the sometimes cringeworthy antics of Zach’s hot seat — or for his PR people to sign off on it.
Zach sets the tone for the interview with his first line: “It’s really exciting to talk to you, especially right in the middle of your public meltdown.” He proceeds to insult, chastise, and otherwise interrogate Bieber before standing up from his chair and whipping the 19-year-old with his belt. Of course, no Canadians were harmed in the making of this video — “Between Two Ferns” is a Funny or Die production, which means that Justin, like Zach, is acting. Keep that in mind! [via Gawker]
There is really nothing I can say about how Richard Simmons—who, in addition to being a pop culture fitness icon, co-starred in one of the best “Whose Line Is it Anyway?” sketches ever, just FYI—took to Twitter during the Emmys to post pictures of himself cosplaying as characters from “Game of Thrones”, “Breaking Bad”, “American Horror Story”, and “Behind the Candelabra”. Literally nothing. My brain is just going ??!?!??!??!??!?!. It’s so beautiful. Read more at The Mary Sue…
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a fucking genius. Let me lay it out for you: the actress and comedienne, perhaps best known as “Seinfeld”‘s Elaine, has received four Emmys, a Golden Globe, and five Screen Actors Guild Awards. She’s the only woman to have won the Emmy for three separate comedy series, and is also the most nominated actress in Emmy Award history. So yeah, Julia kills it, really kills it, and she continues to kill it, most recently on “Veep” … and in this brand new meltdown clip, which Jimmy Kimmel released into the wild.
Now, YouTube and similar video sites all but runneth over with film of people freaking out in public. Kimmel speculates that this readily-available resource has driven actual actors and performers to raise the bar, because if you can watch tens of thousands of regular people having a meltdown, shouldn’t entertainers then be able to determine the best means by which to simulate the most realistic meltdown possible? Julia throws down the gauntlet with this hilarious, amazing, unsettlingly lifelike freakout about gluten-free food, juxtaposed perfectly with real clips of Regular People Freaking Out. (Jimmy is quick to clarify that this video is, in fact, a joke. Remember what happened last time?) It’s unclear whether or not the employees and other customers were in on the joke, but judging by the shocked looks on their faces, I would assume not. [Crushable]
I have lived with a male roommate (platonically) for almost a year now. And boy-oh-boy has it taught me a lot about boys. Most things I already knew, that they are generally messy, that they would rather pay you to do dishes than do it themselves, and that they hate watching Four Weddings marathons.
What I wasn’t prepared for, however, is how much boys have in common with girls. After much discussion with my friends, I have come up with a list of 8 ways this is true. Read more at College Candy…
Dear Any And All Spiders Currently Residing In My Home,
I recently saw one of you crawling along the hallway wall. It was fairly small, and I was feeling generous, so I decided to let it live. Later that afternoon, as I was checking my email and sipping a cup of boiling hot tea, this same spider decided it would be a good time to crawl up my thigh, causing me to spill scalding Earl Grey all over my lap and keyboard.
“THIS WAS NOT THE AGREEMENT!” I yelled at the spider as I knocked it off my leg and smashed it into the tea-stained carpet.
But then I realized that maybe I wasn’t being fair. After all, I had never actually given the spider a copy of the agreement. It’s time we all got on the same page, don’t you think? Here is the standard human/spider cohabitation contract I expect us to abide by: Keep reading »
Vladimir Putin is sort of like the small-boned Chuck Norris of world leaders — think an unassuming Renaissance man who will straight-up end you. (If you aren’t well-versed in the art of Putin, might I point you in the direction of his 8 most ridiculous publicity stunts?) The man has his own personal bear, for Christ’s sake, but he also knows how to have a good time. Putin is a born entertainer. You know what they say about us Russians and our sense of humor! (Nothing. Literally nothing.) Now, the Russian President can add one more aside to his name: a canine doppelgänger. This Staffordshire terrier-German shepherd mix made the news for his resemblance to the politician, and we have to admit the similarity in that close-set stare is almost uncanny. Fortunately, we don’t think Putin will have a problem with knowing he has a doggy double running around. We already know how much he loves pups. [Metro.co.uk]
