Liam Lynch explains the origin of the video, but what was Dan Deacon thinking as he recorded the audio? Of all the free MP3 downloads he offers, Two Friends from the Acorn Master album may be the most, um, listenable. Thanks to daily songsmith Corey B (Corey Blanchette) for the tip.

Tankmen is funny, no doubt, but I wonder what it means when we’re deeply embroiled in two of the longest running armed conflicts of US history that we find it so easy to make comedy about war.

The TechnoViking will have you scratching your head for the first 90 seconds, then ROFLing for a while. Not enough yet? Watch him dance to “It’s a Piece Of Cake To Bake A Pretty Cake.” This one claims to be the original, and though the sound is bad the video quality is much better than […]

You’ll find more than a few of Demetri Martin‘s (his site) videos on the web (one, two, quotes). Though I think he’s particularly good at powerpoint comedy and this flipchart thing, you’d think he doesn’t like to do interviews.

Richard Stallman‘s Soulja Boy dance, MIT style (via).

From Kim to Zach to me to you: Bush Vs. Zombies. Now we know: the guy doesn’t understand the difference between fact and fiction. Most people thought Shaun of the Dead was horror/comedy, not documentary. Poor W probably read The Zombie Survival Guide as an instruction manual (don’t show him How To Survive a Robot […]

There is little doubt that the great diversity of styles and techniques of bowlers from countries enjoying test match status has helped to shape the history of [the sport]. With the recent world-wide implementation of professional coaching schemes, which generally teach only one, or perhaps two optimal ways…, bowling could be in danger of losing […]

My nephew checked his email while he was here this morning and this was the first thing in his inbox. Maybe it’s because he’s 17 and my humor is at about the same level, but both of us were cracking up over it. Miserable attempt at recovering my dignity with serious criticism: Will Farrell and […]

Among the pop-culture viral videos I apparently missed is Matt Harding‘s dancing. I had to turn to Wikipedia for an explanation: Harding was known for a particular dance, and while videotaping each other in Vietnam, his traveling companion suggested he add the dance. The videos were uploaded to his website for friends and family to […]

The What’s Up? cover would be funny enough on its own, with the He-Man video it’s golden. Now, you know you want to sing along with the chorus. Go for it, here are the lyrics: And so I wake in the morning and I step outside And I take a deep breath And I get […]

“I’m Bruce Pechman, the muscleman of technology, let me show you my credentials.” This is the instructional video that comes with the DynaFlex Powerball Gyro. The fan videos on YouTube have got nothing on this. Just click play and prepare to laugh. Will and I have been asking to see people credentials since he shared […]

I might watch more TV if I didn’t live in the US. Well, I used to like watching World’s Wildest Police Chases on Spike while knocking back a few at the bar after work, but they re-arranged the schedule a while back and it’s just not the same. So clearly I have to sit around […]

Thank Jon for pointing out the above. Actually, you should go read his post on the matter because, well, it gave me a chuckle and it’s certainly better than going shopping today. black friday, lemur, lemurs, dancing, video, move it, jon link, funny
