  • Terrestrial Bird Of Prey Repeatedly Tries To Stomp Out A Rubber Snake On A String

    Terrestrial Bird Of Prey Repeatedly Tries To Stomp Out A Rubber Snake On A String
    This is a short video of a hippogriff secretary bird (hold all my calls) repeatedly stomping the head of a rubber snake on a string that its trainer is dragging. Apparently secretary birds (reschedule tomorrow's budget meeting) are employed by South African farmers as pest controllers, particularly to kill snakes. Presumably because the birds, which are primarily terrestrial, are absolutely terrific at stomping and ripping their prey to shreds. Good to know. When reached for comment about the savage birds, Wile E. Coyote shit his tail and ran off a cliff. Keep going for the video while I turn this into an interpretive dance.
  • It Happens: Two Charity Event Announcers Get Tricked Into Saying Dirty Names On-Air

    It Happens: Two Charity Event Announcers Get Tricked Into Saying Dirty Names On-Air
    charity-donation-pranks.jpg Note: Volume, some excited yelling. This is a video of Phil "EE" Visu and Daniel "DC" Coke working the Smash The Record video game streaming charity event to benefit St. Jude PLAY LIVE when two people who donated to the cause (who can have their name or a message read live on-air) get the two hosts to SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER WATCH FIRST IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED: read the names '4skin Tim' and 'Jenna Tulls'. The best part though was that EE unknowingly reads the first name for a $10 donation, at which point DC starts making fun of him for getting tricked, then reads the second name just moments later for a $1 donation. Obviously, many laughs were had and it was the best $11 I've ever spent. Keep going for the video.
  • German Man Gets His Unit Stuck In Barbell Weight At Gym, Firefighters Spend 3 Hours Freeing Him

    German Man Gets His Unit Stuck In Barbell Weight At Gym, Firefighters Spend 3 Hours Freeing Him
    weight-lifting.jpg Some ridiculous pervert in Worms, Germany, recently got his member stuck in a 2.5kg (~5.5-pound) barbell weight at a gym, after which it took firefighters three hours to remove the weight with the help of a grinder and hydraulic saw. A couple things: 1) boner exercises are HOME EXERCISES. Weights at the gym are COMMUNITY weights and should only be handled by hand. If you want to have sex with the equipment you should buy your own for home use. 2) the hole in those weights is pretty big, so I'm not convinced this wasn't just a poorly designed publicity stunt to score dates (who wants to date a guy who bangs weights?) and 3) if you ever get your wiener stuck in a weight at the gym you have officially lost your right to a penis and first responders should just lop it off and be on their way. Seriously, I actually had to yell at a guy for trying to have sex with a piece of gym equipment last weekend. "He was just using the inner-thigh machine." It looked inappropriate! Thanks to MSA, for inspiring me to follow my dreams and open my own sexual exercise gym in my garage.
  • Netflix Releases Stranger Things Posters Inspired By Classic Horror Film Posters

    Netflix Releases Stranger Things Posters Inspired By Classic Horror Film Posters
    stranger-things-posters-12.jpg This is a series of Stranger Things posters recently released by Netflix that were heavily inspired (they're near identical) by famous horror movie posters of yesteryear. The movies include Alien, Nightmare On Elm Street, Evil Dead, Firestarter, The Running Man (not exactly a horror film but they included it anyways) and Jaws. Which is your favorite? I thought they were all okay, but my favorite is the one I just made myself. "That's a bar napkin." But look what I drew on it. A stick figure wearing glasses? And what does it say? "Boobs alive?" Not boob -- BARB. Barb's alive. Come on, my handwriting isn't that bad. Keep going for five more, as well as their inspirations for reference.
  • I'm Pickle Rick!: Rick And Morty Season 3's Best Scenes Recreated In Fallout 4

    I'm Pickle Rick!: Rick And Morty Season 3's Best Scenes Recreated In Fallout 4
    rick-and-morty-in-fallout-4.jpg This is a four minute video of the best scenes from Rick And Morty season 3 (according to Youtuber UpIsNotJump) recreated in Fallout 4 using a ton of different mods. I thought it was worth a watch. Of course I thought The Emoji Movie was too, so you should probably take my opinion with a grain of salt. Also: this pill. "What is it?" I think it's a boner pill. "What do you mean, 'you think'?" It's either that or an anti-boner pill, I got them mixed up. At any rate we should know either way in a few minutes. "But I haven't taken it." I know, I took the other one. *two minutes later* HIYO, you definitely got the anti-pill. Now give it to me -- I've got a job interview to go to and I'm not trying to break a desk like last time. Keep going for the video.
