Mustaches of the Nineteenth Century

Funny Site of the Day -- "The one-stop blog spot for your Nineteenth Century Mustache needs!"

Ooo, I've been looking for some such! What's it all about?

"Many of the following pages have graphic and clear images of the masculine mustache in all its forms, both sublime and grotesque. My intent is not to shock or titillate, but merely to inform on the subject. The Nineteenth Century gave us many things, but above all it was a hotbed of facial hair experimentation and this is but a poor sampling of those many lost forms."

This occasional digest made me flex my stiff upper lip to stifle some giggles. You'd think the mustache would be stuffy, but it's not.

Bad Postcards

Funny Site of the Day -- Featuring "vintage American postcards, 1950 to 1975" is a good thing when "tourist traps, bad advertising, awful food, stupid jokes, girly girls and manly men, exceedingly cute pets, dinosaurs, and dead fish" are among the pictorial topics. Take a look back to the good ol' bad ol' days of yuck -- with yucks.

Animals With Their Tongues Sticking Out

Funny Site of the Day -- Here's how it works:

1. Get a camera.

2. Get an animal.

3. Wait for a tongue to stick out.

4. Get a snapshot.

5. Post such pictures to a Website called, say, "Animals With Their Tongues Sticking Out."

6. Look at all the pictures of animals with their tongues sticking out.

7. Rejoice.

8. Resist becoming one of the animals with their tongues sticking out your own darn self.

Okay, I'm just writing copy. I have no idea if that's how "Animals With Their Tongues Sticking Out" works, so let's examine their "About" documentation. Here it is, unabridged:

"I think you get the point."

Well, then, guess I'm done here. Good day.

The Recurring Prop Newspaper

Funny Site of the Day -- Something fascinating, found at /Film:

If you watch enough television shows and movies, then you might even start to notice that a bunch of the same props are used over and over again. ... Someone on Reddit recently put together a compilation of photos from various television shows, commercials and movies, showing how one newspaper prop gets around and is reused, and reused again.

Notice the photos included here to illustrate the collection. Actor Ed O'Neill reads the same news on "Married ... With Children" and many years later on "Modern Family."

Speculation is the recycled newsprint has become an insiders' joke and will be as timely tomorrow and next year and the following decade. I'd just like to read the comics section.

Comics.com shares what to expect from the team of Brian and Ron Boychuk in their comic strip, posted with an archive of previous entries. (Hmm, "Boychuk" must be, apparently, a synonym for "chuckle."):

"In a world that’s often all too serious, we welcome you to see it through the eyes of "Chuckle Bros.," a laugh-a-day every day.

"Humor can be found in just about every nook and cranny out there -- down dark alleys, deep in space, far out to sea and hidden under grates. These are just a few of the myriad settings, which serve as a backdrop for the zany world of 'Chuckle Bros.'"

Cuteness is a pet community inviting readers to share stories and photographs of their cutiepoo critters, plus tussle in Cutewars and lounge at the Dogpark. I go for the pictures and, if I'm a good boy -- Good Boy! -- a walk.

Funny Site of the Day -- I've been tracking the Charles M. Schulz Museum on Facebook for awhile. It's a joy to receive frequent posts of the organization's "Peanuts" activities and exhibitions in Santa Rosa, CA, but there are numerous trivia, memorabilia, and news items shared on related topics. The big kick is the ongoing stream of selected comic strips from 50 years of "Peanuts," keeping the gang alive and providing Snoopy with many more suppertimes.

'Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld'

Funny Site of the Day -- My first reaction to TV's "Red Eye," having clicked into it late, late, early, early one morning was, "What the--? How in the world did this show get on the air?"

Soon, I was hooked and finding reasons to stay out of bed until three o'clock rolled around for the nightly panel of celebrities and pundits, party chatting on current events and pop culture. All involved are commissioned with the solitary task of making each other laugh. Voices from across the political spectrum join host Greg Gutfeld for outrageous stories, audacious insults, sexual innuendo goodness, and improbably precious animal footage.

The Bible of Unspeakable TruthsSurprising cable outlet, the Fox News Channel, presents the program. A multitude of video highlights clips are posted and updated regularly at the official online home, or you may skip over to Hulu to view complete recent episodes.

If you can't lurk in the dark until near dawn to catch the series over the air, set your DVR to record the infectious festivities. They hold up well to lunch, part of my daily nutrition.

Shaun the Sheep

Funny Site of the Day -- Aardman Animations, the excellent stop-motion cartoon makers and business partners of superstars Wallace and Gromit, has another fine, lighthearted series underway for television. Meet Shaun and his homies, invites Aardman:

Shaun is a sheep who doesn’t follow the flock – in fact, he leads them into all sort of scrapes and scraps, turning peace in the valley into mayhem in the meadow. Shaun and his pals run rings around their poor sheepdog Bitzer, as he tries to stop the Farmer finding out what’s going on behind his back. The show also introduces a farmyard-full of new characters, including the Naughty Pigs, Timmy the baby lamb and the enormous Shirley, a sheep who eats anything and everything.

At the official Shaun the Sheep site, there's sheer fun found in the numerous video clips. Grab some goodies like email cards and desktop wallpapers. Plus, there is a farm full of related games and activities, including Home Sheep Home, Hide 'N Sheep, Woolly Jumper, Shaun Sudoku, Yogurt Mayhem, Spot the Difference, and Shaun's Bleat Box.

Steve Martin in 'The Absent-Minded Waiter'

Funny Site of the Day -- In 1977, during the phenomenal popularity of the stand-up comedy by Steve Martin, the performer took time from his gushing stardom to write and headline in this 7-minute short subject about a totally mental food server. The project received little distribution from Paramount Pictures, but it eventually became Steve's secret weapon concert warm-up, shown before he took the stage.

Prominent actors Buck Henry and Teri Garr add comic heft as the bumbler's diners.

Betty White on 'Saturday Night Live': Every Single Sketch

Update: Full "Saturday Night Live" Episode with Betty White Episode (minus musical guest) via NBC.com

Funny Site of the Day -- My recollection is Betty White was my earliest TV sweetie. I'm talking age 4 or 5, me, not Betty.

Her wildly popular resurgence of the moment is a particular delight. I'm talking age 88 1/2, Betty, not me.

Her long awaited debut on "Saturday Night Live" has finally occurred. I'm talking 35 years, "SNL," not Betty, not me.

Mashable, The Social Media Guide, has done us all a fine service by tracking down video clips and extras related to her episode.
"NBC and Hulu have both posted videos from the various sketches that ran during the show, plus some backstage peeks, promos, and web-exclusive sketches from the dress rehearsal. We’ve gathered all the videos we could find and brought them into one place for you to enjoy.

The episode was hosted by White, but it also played host to numerous female luminaries from "Saturday Night Live’s" past, including Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch, Amy Poehler, and more. You’ll see them reprise classic roles in several of the videos below. Note that these NBC and Hulu-hosted videos are only viewable in the United States."

#1 Frequently Asked Question:

"What in the world is No Pants Day?
No Pants Day is a day where everyone, be they students, respectable businessmen, or cherished community leaders, leave their pants behind. Usually this means wearing thick, appropriately modest boxer shorts, but bloomers, slips, briefs, and boxer-briefs all work as well."

More details on this hallowed event -- say, is there a draft in here? Oh, my bad. I'm not wearing pants. So, what else is new? -- Anyway, there are more details on this updrafting event at the official Website, plus photos of actual people without actual pants.

'Cupcake Cannon'

Funny Site of the Day -- Here's a bunch of highly technical and confusing data concerning the making of this video, found on YouTube:

"The Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour stop at Kamp Grizzly was epic. Johnny brought a great crowd, his limited edition tour gear and the inspiration for Kamp's Cupcake Cannon. Portland's Kamp Grizzly developed a steam-punk style pneumatic cupcake cannon and set the stage for eating frosty delights at 120psi. The blasting buffet was documented in at 700fps coming off the Phantom HD Gold. As the evening shook down, cupcake enthusiasts continued to step in front of the cannon and camera. Some shaking in their boots, others perched in zen-like states, ALL were covered in delicious frosting, spongy cake, and showered in a mist of sprinkles."

'Seinfeld' Movie Trailer: 'George'

Funny Site of the Day -- Here's one of those TV sitcom coincidences occurring in real life. I featured "Daily Seinfeld" less than 24 hours ago and now this new "Seinfeld" movie trailer has splashed itself across my monitor.

And it's just not right. Comic schlub George Costanza's life has been recut into a fuzzy, Hollywood drama.

--*Gasp!* "George" might even be a chick flick!

Add schmaltzy music to cleverly reedited "Seinfeld" footage with Jason Alexander and Heidi Swedberg as Susan, and you have an emo weepfest.

Things My Date Really Said Last Night

Funny Site of the Day -- All of the shared quotations from the road to romance are supposedly true. You'll have to be judge, while scrolling through this quick-read blog, heavily dependent on contributors.

A sampling of the love:

  • “Your legs sorta remind me of Jell-o… Can I touch them? Ya know, to see if they jiggle?"
  • “I’ve never seen an elf.”
  • “I really have to go work on my robot.”
  • “No, you have very stout shoulders! It would be bad if you grew a demon horn.”
  • “I haven’t slept with anyone since my girlfriend dumped me. My friends basically forced me to go out with you. No offense!”
  • “I brought my own salt.”

As you might expect, some of the content is explicit, crass, and not suitable for work -- and, probably, dating.

Fake AP Stylebook

Funny Site of the Day -- Way back, when I was in Journalism school, during those antiquated days where we were taught to be adamantly objective in our reporting-- Oh! How dear and quaint we were in ye olde-fashioned times!

Anyway, we were also taught style. Proper journalism style includes chain-smoking cigarettes, swigging gin, and following the rules of grammar as depicted in either the UPI or AP Stylebooks. I've consulted both over the years, but they cost money and gin ain't cheap.

Thanks to the Fake AP Stylebook, hosted by Twitter, a steady flow of the dictates, which do change in contemporary circumstances, are presented for free. Ta ta, Associated Press.

Readers do not have to be active Twitter followers to access the instructional material, but I find it helpful to have those valuable tweets sent directly to me. My writing has improved exponentially with the Fake AP's tips and guidance, such as:

  • The word "asshat" is vulgar and should be avoided. Use "butt bonnet."

  • Gary Coleman doing something crazy is not news. That's just a Tuesday.

  • "Weather Bureau" is no longer in use. Instead, use "National Weather Service" or "Those Freakin' Liars."

  • Be sure not to confuse "aural" and "oral." The former is very uncomfortable.

  • You know what? F**k it, just add "'s" to everything.

Some material contains explicit language, but you want to learn, don't you?

'The Onion' - America's Finest News Source

Funny Site of the Day -- "America's Finest News Source," as it is branded, is exactly that, if you prefer your information to be expertly fake. And who doesn't?

The most imitated humor on the Internet is currently honored with a Webby Award nomination in the humor category. "The Onion's" satirical style traffics in a journalism based on truth and fantasy, while steeped in a bias slanted always to laughter. The content can be mean-spirited, vulgar, politically incorrect, and unflinching in mining its themes, but, then again, some stories are simply silly -- a joyful news.

Our Dumb WorldHomeland Insecurity: The Onion Complete News Archives, Volume 17 (Onion Ad Nauseam)
Newspaper-style articles are the prime focus, although clever videos, funny pictures, editorials, and cartoons are to be found in the mix with an emphasis on Sports, Politics, World, Local, Economy, Sci/Tech, Radio, and Entertainment. Several I've eyed to investigate: "Opening Staff Rails Against Incompetence Of Closing Staff," "Most Men Are Too Intimidated To Date A Successful, Educated Gorgon," and "New Six Flags Ride Based On Relationship With Deborah."

For true pop culture news, interviews, and opinions, don't miss "The Onion's" The A.V. Club sister pages, accessible from the main site.
