Funniest Stuff on the Internet

19 Apr

I just got rejected from Zach Galifianakis on Facebook. Let me be more specific in saying that Facebook auto-replied my friend request by saying “This user has too many friends.” Well that settles that. I was really looking forward to reading his status updates about being in the “Chipped mirror department” at an auto repair shop in India.

The sad part is that I had put a lot of effort into my friend request message. It read something like this:

“Hi Zach. Seeing you carry an extra-large martini glass while in a bee hive wig in Tim and Eric’s Vokda Movies is probably one of the most memorable YouTube moments of 2009. Maybe even more memorable than watching that fat Avatar fan paint her face blue.”

And then I got rejected. But I started to think more about more about the YouTube videos that I come back to again and again, especially on days that decide to take the scenic route down Highway Awful. And why stop at YouTube videos? There are plenty of things on the web that my friends and I have watched religiously, and for lack of original material have quoted time and again. So I’ve decided to share with you my list of the funniest stuff on the Internet.

1. Drinking out of Cups. Guy takes acid then sits in the closet and gets recorded by his friend.

2. FU Penguin. “CHICKENS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO DO COCAINE…”

3. Worst Commercial Ever. Obviously fake due to the “Boston Proper” comment but still absolutely ridiculous.

4. Like a Boss Button. Thinking about the mile-long list of tedious, unnecessary work tasks ahead of you? Hit this button after you finish each one. Or watch Like a Boss on Youtube. Last semester I’d walk to my most hated business classes listening to this and it really got me amped up for 55 minutes of human resources.

5. FIRST! My best friend found this one back in the day. “Am I doing Satan’s work? Yes.”

6. Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! If you’re unfamiliar with Tim and Eric videos, I highly recommend watching Prices (oh, lay an egg) or The Snuggler featuring Zach Galifianakis.

7. Awkward Family Photos.

Phonics: “Pah-hoe-nykes”

17 Jan

When I’m bored in the shower I enjoy reading the backs of shampoo bottles. When I’m bored on the train to work, I enjoy reading the Metro,  and when I’m bored on the train after work, I flip through  Stuff@Night. I am a Level 5 Ad-Ignorer for both, which is ironic because I work in advertising. And by work in advertising, I mean that I scan and file the ad contracts that put the ads on the pages of Stuff@Night and The Boston Phoenix. True Life: I’m an Intern.

These are my two favorite columnists. Both are guaranteed to make me LOL on a trainride, thus disturbing other passengers’ Staring-Into-Space time.

1. Elliott Kalan, Metro columnist, writer for the Daily Show, political satirist and sex object

Read his occasionally-posted-on-the-Metro-website column here (under “Kalan:”). The Metro makes me quite proud of the weird web-people that sit behind me and run our webpages.

2. Mike Diskin, Stuff@Night columnist (writes Saturday Night Live), creative director for Stuff@Night

Have a good weekend, Interneters;  I’m off to watch the boyfriend’s band  at the All Asia Cafe. I’m hoping to meet some real, live Asians.
