The best infographic ever

Posted in Funny on April 18, 2012 by mickgirk

Literally, folks. This infographic pretty much sums up arguing on the internet, as well as why 24/7 cable news is usually not the most accurate vehicle for news around.

Read it and weep:

Paul still doesn’t get it

Posted in Funny, Quit It with tags , , , on April 10, 2012 by mickgirk

So back in February, I wrote a little blog post, imploring internet losers like Paul Christoforo and Dr. Lou to quit it. If you scroll down to the comments section, you can see that Paul took it personally (and missed my message entirely,) accusing me of flipping burgers for a living and threatening to sue me for defamation of character.

Despite being entertained by Paul’s puffery and ignorance of both the law and properly expressing oneself, I almost felt a little guilty for my post. Almost like I pointed at a kid on the short bus and laughed at him for being stupid. After all, Paul had been well-castigated for his poor choices, why join in with one more relatively small jab in the balls? Regardless, the point I made in that post is that people that don’t understand the Internet need to stop trying to fool it, or play it for fools. Especially if the IQ of said loser is well below the IQ of the average Twitter-er.

But, as Paul has recently demonstrated, a shit leopard cannot change it’s spots.

So what did he do to be a dumdum now? 

If you recall, ol’ boy claimed that he could get into PAX East whenever he wanted, whether or not the event organizers wanted him to. You know, because he’s hot shit? In case you don’t recall:

So anywho, Paul tweeted a series of photos from PAX East, and claimed it was in fact him on the show floor.

One thing though. As it turns out, the event organizers, wanting to play a joke on ol’ boy, took the pictures and sent them to Paul in a message, expect him to turn around and take credit for the photos. Which he did. It’s all detailed on the Twitter account for the event.

So obviously, now ol’ boy is reveling in hordes of Twitter users telling him how much he sucks for taking the bait and being an asshole once again. I probably should have ascertained by now that Paul is such an attention whore that he’s willing to do dumb things to get noticed by the Internet, but I’ve always had the nagging feeling that this dude really knows not what he does, and is that misguided on how to maintain any sort of career.

Anywho, for anyone trying to not crash and burn online like Paul, DON’T TRY AND FOOL THE INTERNET. If you have to go on tirades on how awesome you are, you’re probably not. Common sense. But if you must lie to online denizens, at least be somewhat more clever at it. For example, trying to fool people that naturally know more about computers than the average guy (gamers)? Not smart. Ok thank you come again.

I am not funny enough to fool you

Posted in Funny, watching videos on the internet is fun with tags , , on April 1, 2012 by mickgirk

Really, I’m not.

I was going to post today about questions of whether or not even our Supreme Court Judges have been influenced by 24/7 news cycle talking points (specifically with regards to the Supreme Court debate over that which hath been dubbed “Obamacare” by idiots and Pharmaceutical lobbyists)

But no. Maybe some other day. Until then, turn into a fool by watching the entire Trailer Park Boys series on YouTube. Yeah, the whole thing. If you’ve never seen this show before, you’re 7-10 years behind the curve and you owe it to yourself. Don’t thank me all at once.

The first and (most applicable episode) I watched:

By the way, there’s a nor’easter coming. I hope you don’t live in Virginia.

The racist nature of sign language?

Posted in Funny with tags , , on March 26, 2012 by mickgirk

So yesterday, I was out at a bar, drinking cheap tallboys and eating free tater tots. Lazy Sunday, indeed.

So then a buddy of mine starts telling us about how he learned that American Sign Language is racist, and proceeded to show us how to say “Jew” in sign language (which, you guessed it, involves making a motion that evokes “money-grubbing”.)

Naturally, everyone else around called shenanigans on said claim. The buddy in question is also an avid believer of things like Ancient Aliens, so it’s not impossible to suggest that this claim would be, well, questionable.

As it turns out though, that very claim has been a topic of internet interest for years. Here’s comedian Russell Peters talking about the signs for “Jew.”

Apparently back in 2004, a hubub was caused when people insisted on making Sign Language “politically correct”, removing signs that can be construed as racist (another example being the sign for Asian, which I’m sure you can guess.) The hilarious thing, to me, is that people opposed changing the language, on the basis that it’s political correctness run amuk… wait, what?

A quote, should you not click on the article:

Critics labelled the move as silly, saying that the producers were interfering with “deaf culture”.

OK?

I noticed that this didn’t mention American Sign Language being changed, but British Sign Language. I can’t seem to find any article saying something similar about ASL, so I have to assume it hasn’t been changed. If anyone knows a deaf person, I’d like to directly confirm this. Because I find it interesting. Please and thank you.

Kony 2012 founder busted for drunkenly masturbating in public

Posted in Funny, Quit It with tags , , on March 16, 2012 by mickgirk

Didn’t believe that Kony 2012 was nonsense? I’m sure you may still think that the “cause” is legit, but if your leader is caught on a bender masturbating and vandalizing cars…  point proven.

From MSNBC:

 A co-founder of Invisible Children, the group behind the “KONY 2012” video on alleged atrocities by an African warlord, was detained after a witness reported a man masturbating and acting strangely,NBCSanDiego.com reported.

Jason Russell was detained after a man was reported masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, said police Lt. Andra Brown, NBCSanDiego.com reported.


Why this is even more amusing.

Try as you might, it’s hard to gain national attention for an altruistic cause AND be a scumbag at the same time.

Why I am not funny on command

Posted in Funny with tags , on March 13, 2012 by mickgirk

I just applied to a job as a “satirical writer.” Sounds fun, but unfortunately, I needed to send a sample article for them to consult in deciding your fate as a potential hire. I tried, but I believe I wrote something that falls about as flat as any of the jokes in the subject.

Enjoy? Or don’t. It’d be better if I were in a fatsuit.

Eddie Murphy’s newest movie beats projections

Makes $6.2 million more than expected in opening weekend.

The second entry in Eddie Murphy’s epic trilogy of shelved films that won’t die, the first being the unmistakable The Adventures of Pluto Nash, A Thousand Words delves into the thoughtful and mystical side of Murphy’s comedy, a debut four years in the waiting in the back lots of Paramount Studios. The original print of this movie must have been sitting next to the Ark of the Covenant (isn’t that where the government put it?,) because this film is destined to go down in movie lore, forever.

In what has to be the most cult comedy since Troll 2, Eddie Murphy plays a man who plays Eddie Murphy as a literary agent. However, through some high-larious mix-up, he tries to screw over a New Age guru, played by Cliff Davis, and a mystical Bodhi tree grows in his backyard. The problem? A leaf falls with every word Mr. Murphy speaks, and somehow, he realizes that he will die if the tree runs out of leaves. Hence, the title of the film.

In this movie, one that gives Evan Almighty a run for it’s thinking-man’s money, we see a quieter side of Eddie Murphy. As in, he doesn’t talk much. What he lacks in speaking he makes up for with the “outrageous” things he does to communicate. Apparently, there are other people in this movie, but I couldn’t tell you who, even if I wanted to.

Rotten Tomatoes has given this film a shocking zero percent on the Tomatometer, which just goes to show why a college education is a stupid and evil thing. On the flip side, A Thousand Words joins the esteemed company of other movies, most of which are other movies with Eddie Murphy in them (just kidding, Pluto Nash got a six percent.) Other members of this infamous collective include Adam Sandler’s thought-provoking Bucky Larsen: Born to Be a Star, The previously mentioned God of d-movies Troll 2, the strange and truly creepy Pinocchio remake, and Adam Sandler’s more-annoying-than-thou Jack and Jill. Wait, Jack and Jill got a three percent? It’s those damn college educations again.

Regardless of the hype, A Thousand Words took in $6.2 million at the box office this weekend. Reportedly, filmgoers were excited for another chance to see Eddie Murphy in a fatsuit, only to be sorely disappointed when no fatsuit scenes materialized. By contrast, The Lorax topped the list with a take of $38.8 million, which goes to show that college educations are turning our people into damn smelly liberal treehuggers.

Will this become a cult classic once it hits DVD and Blu-Ray? Only time shall tell. However, it does leave us with a pressing question… how shall Eddie Murphy round out this trilogy?
