Funniest Video of the Day - 10 Jul 2012

I don’t know how this video got nearly 8 million views without me hearing about it, but, like the groom, I couldn’t stop laughing. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.

Estimation - 20 Jul 2009

This made me literally LOL.

World’s Best Passenger Complaint Letter - 26 Jan 2009

“Look at this Richard. Just look at it.” A Virgin airlines passenger voices his complaints about the food and entertainment to Sir Richard Branson. I for one could barely stop laughing. The world’s best passenger complaint letter.

The Perfect Couple - 22 Jan 2009

A perfect man met a perfect woman. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was, of course, perfect. One snowy, stormy Christmas Eve this perfect couple was driving along a winding road when they noticed someone at the roadside in distress. Being the perfect couple, they stopped to help. There […]

Oh the Things Bears Love - 09 Dec 2008

Things Bears Love chronicles the loves of a bear. The images are funny but slightly gruesome. But mostly really funny. (via waxy links)

Turn Your Inbox Into Miami Beach - 24 Oct 2008

3d Mailbox turns your Inbox into Miami Beach. The people are your incoming email messages, the bouncer is the spam filter. If the message is deemed valid, the person goes into the pool until you read them. Once they’re read, they go to the cabana. If the bouncer deems the message as spam, the person […]

The Real Cause of Childhood Obesity - 27 Jun 2008

In California, kids have to be in car seats until age 6 or 60 pounds. As you might expect, no self-respecting six year old wants to be in a baby seat. Parents are tired of the whining, so what can they do? Feed the little buggers. Parents are plumping up their little polliwogs to get […]

Street Magic Gone Awry - 30 May 2008

Sometimes things don’t work out like you planned.

High volume email deployers - 21 Feb 2008

This was pretty funny. (via Aaron Wall)

Wobbly ankles - 20 Jul 2007

A model had a hard time walking in her high heels while carrying a watering pail, and the news anchors couldn’t stop laughing. I couldn’t either. Via: VideoSift

Funny student exam answers - 26 Apr 2007

Here’s a compilation of funny student exam answers that have floated around the web. One question that remains is how they got onto the web. Did the students scan and post them? Perhaps a friend was amused at their classmate’s stupidity and scanned it? Then again, maybe the teacher or professor decided to post it […]

The Empire’s Worst Engineer - 10 Apr 2007

I give you The Inbox Of Nardo Pace, The Empire’s Worst Engineer. They’re funny, but they also make a good point about the questionable utility and practicality of thing in Star Wars, like the painfully slow trash compacter, the speaker in Darth Vader’s helmet and the awkward placement of Boba Fett’s ignition button.

A bad place to land - 26 Mar 2007

This probably isn’t real, but it’s still funny.

Small explosion between the legs - 19 Mar 2007

This blog entry is mainly about a billboard that says, “I pooted” (which I too find deliciously humorous) but that’s not the reason I’m linking to it. The reason I’m linking to it is because it confirms something which I had begun to ascribe to an overactive imagination. Boy howdy, I’ll never, ever forget when […]

The world in 7 pictures - 13 Feb 2007

Jason once showed me a site that described an ideal vacation resort. It talked about relaxing in the warm sun, swimming and enjoying time away from the bustle of crowds and city life. Then it displayed the first picture on this site. Man that’s crowded. I guess it depends on what you’re comparing it to.

The painting - 24 Jan 2007

Whenever I upgrade WordPress, I take a stroll through my web site to make sure everything is in order. Occasionally I’ll find something that broke or needs tweaking, but I almost always find an interesting post in the archives that I’d forgotten about. This time it was rock paper saddam, a collection of images of […]

.002 cents and .002 dollars - 11 Dec 2006

Over at Verizon Math rages a mathematical debate. The core of the issue is whether or not there’s a difference between .002 cents and .002 dollars. The only ones saying no are Verizon customer service representatives. You can read the transcript of the original phone call (apparently it wasn’t the only time). To their credit, […]

Microsoft Training - 09 Oct 2006

Actors from a TV show called The Office (I’ve never seen it) are in two spoofs of Microsoft training videos. They’re funnier every time I watch them, and the outtakes are hilarious. (Note: There is some profanity) They’re fairly long (20 and 17 minutes) so I was going to suggest skipping right to the outtakes, […]

tempur pedic stalker - 27 Jul 2006

In case you aren’t familiar with tempur pedic, it’s a company that makes beds out of a shocking new space age material that allows you to jump up and down wildly on one side while a glass of red wine rests gently on the other, unperturbed. You see, everyone needs to jump up and down […]

greatest usb drive ever - 21 Jul 2006

Once you see the USB Teddy, you’re going to have to get one. I echo what geekologie said. “This is the best USB drive in the world. Hands down. I wouldn’t even care if the maximum capacity was 2MB and it caught on fire every time it was plugged in.” (via geekologie)

redundancy in the lavatory - 30 Jun 2006

I recently used a restroom that had a stall that made you feel like you were hunkered down in a bomb shelter. Why? There were eight rolls of toilet paper. Now, I’ve seen plenty of bathrooms that have 2 rolls, which makes perfect sense. The janitorial staff can replace one if it’s empty when they […]

top 10 stock photography cliches - 06 Jun 2006

You’ve probably seen the classic marketing pictures used in so many advertisements nowadays. I never thought much about their overuse, but forty media provides a humorous commentary on 10 oft-used photos in marketing.

beer can house - 30 May 2006

Let’s say you have a place to rent. You hear about a guy who always pays his rent on time, never complains about anything and keeps to himself. Sounds like a dream come true, right? That’s what the owner of this townhouse thought until he came back to see the place 8 years later.

take my kids - 14 Jul 2005

I read a letter that was supposedly written to the IRS after the man was not allowed to claim deductions for two of his three children. I didn’t believe it, but the story was still very amusing. What makes it even funnier is that Snopes researched the story and found that it’s true – the […]

breakup by mail server - 22 Jun 2005

Whenever I get a bounced e-mail from a mail server running qmail, I wonder what the developers were thinking when they wrote the following message: Hi. This is the qmail-send program at I’m afraid I wasn’t able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I’ve given up. Sorry […]

filtered underpants - 12 May 2005

My daily desk calendar described a rather humorous yet potentially useful invention. It’s called Under-Ease. Here’s the explanation they provided. Colorado inventor Buck Weimer has released underpants that contain a powerful charcoal filter to remove the unpleasant smell of intestinal gas. Weimer invented the garment for his wife, who suffers from a gastrointestinal disorder called […]

tips for telemarketers and junk mail - 15 Apr 2005

These tips for telemarketers and junk mail are all in good fun. The claims they make (like hitting # several times will remove your number) are probably false but I found them entertaining nonetheless. 1. Three little words that work. The three little words are: “Hold on please…” Saying this, while putting down your phone […]

voicemail play by play - 08 Apr 2005

I found a hilarious mp3 of a voice mail message at and had to share it. Below is the story of its supposed origin and though I can’t vouch for its veracity (Snopes says it is undetermined), I guarantee you’ll laugh or I’ll give you a full money-back refund. In fact, I challenge you […]

zug is one funny site - 24 Mar 2005

I love to find things that make me laugh and that’s what happened when I read a few of John Hargrave’s pranks. The most recent one I ran across is the Credit Card Prank II, which is a follow-up to his original Credit Card Prank. In both of them, he makes up signatures (like ‘My […]

if at first you don’t succeed - 11 Feb 2005

The story on my daily calendar was called, ‘A Close Shave.’ That’s the same name as one of the Wallace and Gromit movies, but that’s not why I’m writing about it. First, here’s scene 14 of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. NARRATOR: The Tale of Sir Lancelot. FATHER: One day, lad, all this will […]

ironic, isn’t it? - 04 Feb 2005

Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader Calendar from Page-A-Day sits on my desk and I just read a funny one where the scammers truly got what they deserved. A Vietnamese man devised a cheap plan to make a lot of easy money – he started with an ordinary lump of iron, then used cow fat and paint […]

australian tourism - 28 Jul 2004

These questions about Australia were posted on an Australian Tourism Website and obviously the answers came from a fellow Aussie. (between brackets the country where the question was coming from) 1. Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia? I have never seen it rain on TV, so how do the plants grow (UK). A: […]

rock, paper, saddam! - 21 Jul 2004

Who knew that Saddam would be playing Rock, Paper, Scissors in court? That crazy tiger hand. Hah! (Thanks to Greg for the link)

born on the date of the offense - 04 Jun 2004

Here’s one way to get out of a ticket. The surprising thing is it worked.

rejecting the rejection - 29 May 2004

The next time you receive a rejection letter, you may want to borrow some lines from the rejection of the rejection letter. It’s a classic. (via mezzoblue)

stomping grapes on a raised platform - 13 May 2004

Matt Haughey posted one of the funniest news clips I’ve seen in a long, long time. I call it, “Ooooo, ooo, ooo, ooowww, oooo, I can’t breath!” It’s probably rude to think that’s funny, but I seriously thought the newscasters shown after the incident were going to bust up laughing. I say it’s okay to […]

interrogating saddam - 03 May 2004

Somehow the interrogation logs of Saddam Hussein have found their way onto the web. Here’s a sample: Interrogation commenced: 0330 hours Woke SH quite early to catch him off-guard and groggy. I asked, “What’s your first name?” and he said, “Saddam.” Again I asked, “What’s your first name?” and he said, “Saddam.” I kept asking, […]

the blimp man returns - 22 Apr 2004

A little less than a year ago I posted a story about a sinister blimp that was hilarious. It was posted again on Metafilter today, so I read the story again and it was still quite funny. I wanted to see what else was at the site so I removed the page from the URL […]

butthead astronomer - 02 Apr 2004

I read about this lawsuit and had to share. Plaintiff: Carl Sagan, world-famous astronomer. Defendant: Apple Computer, Inc. In 1993 one of the project managers of a personal computer decided to use “Carl Sagan” for the internal name of the project. The name would not be released to the public and was thought to be […]

giant parka-wearing crabs - 02 Mar 2004

I read Dave Barry’s humor column every week, but this week’s column, It’s all downhill from here, was especially funny. I still chuckle when I think of his final tip for skiers: If you’re skiing with your wife, and you foolishly ride up the mountain on a chairlift with her, and for reasons that are […]

telemarketers get their own medicine - 17 Oct 2003

I just read Dave Barry’s column about the do not call registry and I found it deliciously ironic. In another column he provided the number for the ATA and now they are complaining that they are receiving unwanted calls which are inconveniencing them. The horror!

beano - 20 Aug 2003

The latest wonder drug to hit the market: Beano. It’s a pill you take before eating gassy foods to prevent unpleasant emissions from the nether regions. However for a topic so ripe with potential, the best they came up with was “Enjoy food without gas.” It’s a pity considering all the possibilities available to them. […]

the perfect couple - 17 Jul 2003

There was a perfect man who met a perfect woman. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was, of course, perfect. One snowy, stormy Christmas Eve the perfect couple was driving along a winding road when they noticed someone at the roadside in distress. Being the perfect couple, they stopped […]

poor communication - 07 Jul 2003

I overheard someone say “You’re breaking up” in a cell phone conversation and my overactive imagination began to churn. What if the person on the other end thought they had said “We’re breaking up?” A bad cell phone connection could be the end of a wonderful relationship and that would be a pity. Don’t underestimate […]

imitation sincerest form of fartery - 19 May 2003

In order to write the next part of the progressive story I searched Google to find the right phrase for flatulation and found Justin’s site. I admit it’s a strange way to find a site and not the type of thing you’d bring up at the dinner table. “In my search for a farting euphemism […]

discoveries from modern science - 16 May 2003

Randy emailed me the following list with his comments in parentheses. I don’t know who wrote the comments in parentheses, but they made me laugh. Did you know that if you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough energy to heat one cup of coffee? (Hardly seems worth […]

polluted britches - 20 Mar 2003

Mr. Burns had a hilarious line in episode 306 of The Simpsons. Homer made a list of things to improve at the factory in an effort to get a promotion. Burns took the list and retorted, “What do you expect me to do, smile and pollute my britches with delight?” That’s not the exact wording […]

funny food - 19 Mar 2003

The Weight Watcher’s cards are good for a laugh, reminiscent of James Lilek’s Institute of Official Cheer.

new tax form - 03 Feb 2003

This is funny. And it’s true. Funny and true.

a rental - 31 Jan 2003

When I reached the ripe old age of 25, the barrier to renting cars was no more, much to the chagrin of the rental agencies. You see, when I drive a rental car, I have fun. I do things that I would never do to my own car. Knowing that I drive the way I […]
