caption contest: car wreck – how did this happen

Standard

We haven’t had a caption contest recently, so let’s get that restarted.  It’s real simple to play — think of something funny / humorous to go with this picture.  The only rule is to keep it clean.  And regardless of whether you have anything to contribute, you can enjoy the comments other people leave, too.

Let me also add that comments usually pour in over the next week, so this is the type of post that it’s good to check back on.  You can also subscribe to the comments (whether for just this post or all comments) if you would rather be notified that way.

epic fails in amateur athletics

Video

Some readers have requested more funny videos, so I’m bringing you another one.  It’s easy enough to find funny videos by searching YouTube, but that usually ends up wasting a lot of time, so I don’t do that too often.  This video happens to be a commercial for Liberty Mutual Insurance called Amateur Athletes.  Normally I’d prefer to link to a non-commercial video, but this one is actually pretty good.  It could also be called athletics gone wrong or epic fails in athletics.

If you’re still unsure about whether or not to spend 30 seconds watching this, here’s what happens: There’s a guy who tries to dunk a basketball but fails in a spectacular way, a guy who tries to do a roundhouse kick but learns he’s no Chuck Norris, and a guy throwing a football that starts a fire in a tailgater’s car.  Classic stuff…  I bet they had fun making this commercial.

There needs to be more commercials where stuff catches on fire…  🙂

cashier beatboxing

Standard

Here’s a video of Beardyman at a supermarket / grocery store, where he starts out as a bored cashier but gets inspired to do some beatboxing along the way.  If only the cashiers at Walmart could do this…

He has a number of other videos out, and he performs live, too.  If you care to experience more of his “beatology”, here’s a music video of DOLBYMAN featuring Beardyman performing all the parts, which covers several musical genres.

 

explaining Dennis Rodman as U.S. ambassador

Standard

Recently Dennis Rodman met with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, and then he went to Rome to hopefully meet with the new Pope.  I haven’t heard a valid explanation of how this could’ve happened.  Rodman was a basketball star in the NBA years ago, but is he famous in North Korea?  Or did he achieve this meeting with some shuckin’ and jivin’?  Either way, no one knows.  But this picture below might be the best explanation I’ve heard thus far.

Farmer Style (Gangnam Style Parody)

Standard

I heard that the most-watched video of all-time is the Gangnam Style video by PSY, so I watched it to see what all the hub-bub was about.  It’s a catchy beat, the dancing is weird, but I don’t see how it has over 1.1 billion views.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s a music video from South Korea.  That’s it.  It’s not the best music video I’ve ever seen — it just went viral somehow.  Who said music videos are dead?  I’m not continuing the trend of linking to it, though, because it’s not totally family-friendly.

However, I came across a parody that gives you the gist of it, with the music and style, but with different lyrics, in English.  It’s random and silly (like the original).

funny pictures, episode 16, political edition

Standard

With today being election day and the predictions showing that it will be closer than it should be, it looks like half the voters will be disappointed when it’s all over.  So what better time for something funny?  Here’s more funny political pictures, to lighten the load.

I’m not sure Boss Hogg and Rosco P. Coltrane would do a better job than Obama or Romney, but they would be a LOT more entertaining!

Are zombies allowed to vote? Let’s hope not!

The government might as well sell it — they’ve already sold out on it.

Regardless of your stance on Obama’s policies, there is the very important issue of how we going to pay for it.

[A few weeks ago] Biden: “Shouldn’t we be fixing the economy instead of playing golf?” Obama: “Wait until we get closer to the next election. Then we’ll make things look better.”

Obama: Did I do that?

Kid, a lot of people are scared…

funny costumes, pt. 4

Standard

With Halloween approaching once again, people are looking for costumes that are funny, weird, scary, cool, awesome, etc.  We don’t sell costumes here, but we do usually show pictures of some interesting costumes every year around this time.  So here’s a few more…

This is cool! One of the Ghostbusters and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Speaking of cool… what’s cooler than a Mr. T costume for babies? You have cute and tough at the same time.

I like this one, too — Spiderman’s enemy Doctor Octopus / Dr. Octavius / Doc Ock, and he has captured Spiderman. This might scare some children, but that’s part of trick-or-treat, isn’t it?

Warning: the following picture may be disturbing to some viewers.  If you are easily grossed out or offended, you should stop here.  It’s just not right.

No man should ever dress like Wonder Woman. I realize some people enjoy gross stuff, but there’s a line you don’t want to cross, and this is so far past that line that it’s like “what line?”

The caption for this could be “Never too old to attend Hogwarts”, but that might not be true…

One of my friends said he was going to get a Halloween costume of a giant whoopie cushion.  Of course you can imagine what kind of sound effects he would produce to go with such a costume.
