Watch Out Britney, Ugly Gay Men Can Make Elaborate Dance Videos Too

Posted in funny, videos with tags on August 18, 2011 by absurddelight

Yet another example where incongruity captivates us. Here the high production values make a the motley mix of unattractive men a baffling delight as we just can’t understand why they aren’t little hentai school girls.

Consider the crafted timing: as you start to realize that charmer with the Ed Grimley do isn’t just a background distraction and you’re wondering, ‘what kind of elaborate gay bridge club home video is this?’ And then, bang!, we’re on a soundstage. You know this is the real deal then and that every element is befuddlingly intentional, making the Grimley do all the more distracting.

Send on the backstory for this if you have it.

Meta Mockery Videos

Posted in funny, news and media, things i like, videos with tags , on March 9, 2010 by absurddelight

Meta jokes and commentary are all the rage.  OK, they have been for a while. So it makes sense that several pretty good videos are floating around with meta mockeries of various media genres.

Here’s TV News, mocked, in TV News format.

Here’s an award winning movie trailer, mocking that venerated genre.  Really, it’s pretty well made. This team could probably make an actually decent movie.

Here’s more from BriTANick

Things we like: Selleck Waterfall Sandwich

Posted in art and design, funny, neato, things i like with tags , , , , , , , on February 1, 2010 by absurddelight

We like this.

No idea on the origin of the site, but I presume there is some bored genius under-utlized in or under-employed behind this gift to the minions toiling in cubicle tedium.

And, lest you think that’s a one off, there are many more sandwich/Selleck varieties. Some even have animation. And a theme song.

Idiotarod 2010 – Get racing!

Posted in funny, things to do, videos with tags , , , , on January 29, 2010 by absurddelight

If you don’t know what the yearly Idiotaraod is, then the name should give you a hint. And what that doesn’t explain this video will:

OK, that explains very little except that this race involves shopping carts, costumes and dodge ball.

Here are some of the rules (selected for their explanatory power or humor):

Each team consists of five racers and one shopping cart.

Any team wearing spandex is disqualified.

While the cart is moving during the race, four racers must be forward of the back wheels of the cart (the “sled dog”position) and one racer must be behind the cart (the “musher” position).

The Committee has sole discretion over all points awarded or deducted, prizes awarded, which prizes are being awarded, race rules, all laws of physics, what time it is, and what happened in the past, all of which are subject to change without notice.

Actual full rules here.

Mind you, those are from a website that pretends to tell you the route and suggests that:

You figure it out. Or maybe Google will help you. Click on “Get Directions” and select “By Shopping Cart”.

America’s First Legal Gigolo

Details Magazine broke some news last week. They had an “exclusive interview” that sparked coverage around the country of a little ranch in Nevada. That salacious scoop was picked up by the AP and spread through venerable CBS, MSNBC, and even staid NPR inciting gleeful web editors all around to chuckle and hit publish on headlines including the word “Prostidude.”  Originality reigns, but that’s not the point here.

The man of the hour goes by “Markus” and he’s using his 15 minutes of fame/ridicule to preach an empowerment gospel, part of a long venerable line of other civil rights heroes.

He is a man is proclaiming his rights for all to hear:

“It’s just the same as when Rosa Parks decided to sit at the front instead of the back. She was proclaiming her rights as a disadvantaged, African-American older woman. And I’m doing the same.”

And promoting empowerment:

“A surrogate lover will love that woman for a whole hour, or however much we charge here, and she’ll leave feeling much more empowered and much more confident in herself.”

Noble work indeed. And if you wonder how one comes to find stable pay for such saintly acts: Continue reading
