Meme Me

-- Adrienne Miller

Thank heaven for YouTube.

Yes, I get that there is more to memes than Double Rainbow and The Bed Intruder Song. But let's be honest, you're not interested in that, are you? You don't care about the evolution of the paper clip as a prime example of how the human mind constantly struggles to improve our current situation.

No, you want the funny. It's ok. So do I.

So here are some of my favorite  favorite sources of web based comedy.

Blame Society Productions

You probably already know about Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager. If you don't, you should. Darth's little brother has been running shifts at Empire Market for 3 seasons now.



The cast and crew have been making these for free. These are talented people and they deserved to get paid. There is a kickstarter campaign to make Season 4.

But Chad Vader, as great as it is, isn't the best that Matt Sloan and Aaron Yonda have to offer. They have put out an embarrassment of YouTube riches. My favorites: Beer & Board Games, Fun Rangers, and Ehow. Note: all of these are edgier than the PG Chad Vader episodes, definetly NSFW...but they're also funnier.



"If only three sheep can be involved, it's not worth my time!" Seriously, don't click on this if you're at work. 

Next time you have an hour to kill, check them out.

Rifftrax

If you were anything like me, you spent the last part of 1999 crying in a corner because you'd just found out that Mystery Science Theater 3000 had been canceled.

Ok, so you probably weren't anything like me...but, if you really like to listen to three ridiculously funny guys making fun of movies, check it out.



Fortunately  Mike, Kevin and Bill are always suitable for work!


Viral Video Firm School

Brett Erlich is a god. Don't believe me?

I give you Exhibit A:



And Exhibit B:



See? There's like a million of these, and they're all just as awesome.

Best post ever! Well.....how bout funniest, so nobody gets bent out of shape. Love it!

This should come with a warning though. If you check out all that the brilliant folks in the above links have to offer, you'll never get anything done ever again. Proceed with caution!

I have snorted so much (diet) coke up my nose after watching these it's ridiculous

Lisa Alber said...

Thanks for this! I need more funny in my life! And speaking of funny, have you seen the YouTube video of Darth Vadar in the Death Star cantina? It's Lego animation narrated by Eddie Izzard. For some reason, I cry laughing everytime I view it.

L.G.C. Smith said...
