Funny on Friday: Jewel Karaoke

23 July 2010 | 2 Comments

From Funny or Die – Jewel dresses up as an ugly office worker with a fake nose and a wig, and then hits a karaoke bar.  She sings a few of her songs.  It’s cute.

Funny on Friday: The Oatmeal

2 July 2010 | 0 Comments

If you haven’t seen a comic by The Oatmeal yet, you need to check these out.  My favourite is “How A Web Design Goes Straight to Hell”.  There are some other good ones there too, like “What Your Email Address Says About Your Computer Skills” and “What It’s Like to Own an Apple Product“.

Or maybe you would prefer the quizzes on The Oatmeal, including the popular “How Many Justin Biebers Could You Take in a Fight?“.  For the record, I could take 20.

Funny on Friday: Grandma’s Google Call

11 June 2010 | 0 Comments


Today’s Funny on Friday is thanks to Ian, who showed me the clip below.  Apparently it was making its way around the nerd websites, but I missed it.

This is an audio recording of somebody’s Grandma calling some sort of tech support (not Google) asking how to remove the playable Pacman game that Google put up on its homepage on May 22 (Pacman’s 30th birthday).  Apparently Pacman was making some noise, driving Grandma crazy.  Listen to the clip, and be awed by the tech support guy’s amazing patience.  And if you want to play Google Pacman, it’s still online here.

Funny on Friday: Drummer Video

This video’s making it rounds on the internet, so you many have already seen it.  I couldn’t resist posting though – just check out that guy and his mad drumming skills!  I’ve watched this a few times, and I can’t help laughing out loud.  Enjoy!

Funny on Friday: Stuart Anderson

21 May 2010 | 0 Comments

A while ago, my friend Jenny and I were bored one night, so we started watching videos on Everything Is Terrible (a video blog devoted to weird and hilarious old video clips – usually found on VHS tapes).

We came across this gem – a small child named Stuart Anderson, singing traditional Scottish folk songs.  We both laughed so hard we couldn’t breathe.  Just look at his facial expressions!  And what is he doing with those hands? I hope you enjoy this as much as we did:

Funny on Friday: Stuff White People Like

14 May 2010 | 0 Comments

I’ve been hearing way too much lately about the blog-turned-book, 1000 Awesome Things (the book is called The Book of Awesome).  I think it’s cool that a blogger is getting so much attention, and a nice book deal, but the subject matter is way too touchy-feely daily-affirmation style for me.

I prefer an earlier blog-turned-book, Stuff White People Like.  Unlike The Book of Awesome and its heartwarming, positive outlook,  Stuff White People Like is ironic.  And hilarious.  I think it’s so funny to me because I self-identify with the writing.  As much as I like to think I’m an individual, and not a stereotypical white, liberal, urban hipster, I still am.  So almost every entry in the blog/book resonates with me.  Because like it or not, it’s who I am.

Just look at this entry about Moleskine Notebooks (yep, the very same notebooks I blogged about yesterday).  Stuff White People Like helps me to laugh at myself.  Which is very important.

Oh yeah, and the title of this blog is a bit of a nod to Stuff White People Like.  If you hadn’t guessed that already.

Funny on Friday: Awkward Family Photos

7 May 2010 | 0 Comments

Whenever I need a quick laugh, I head over to the Awkward Family Photos website, and am seldom disappointed.  Just look at the Star Trek themed family portrait above… these shots are golden.  And I’m obviously not the only one who thinks this website is hilarious… they got a book deal.  The AFP book launched last night in LA, and you can get copies through Amazon.ca.  I’m adding this to my wishlist.

Funny for Friday

Yay!  It’s Friday!  I’m away today on our little long-weekend “Art, Architecture and Outlet Malls” trip, so you know I’m having a good time.

But if you’re still stuck at work, perhaps a little pick-me-up is in order.  Here’s a very funny video from Will Ferrell and Adam “Ghost Panther” McKay (seriously, it says that in his profile).  It’s a few years old, and you’ve probably seen it before, but it’s a classic.  Worth a revisit.  Have a good laugh, and enjoy your weekend!
