This is just adorably funny:
Anderson Cooper completely loses control of himself on live TV.
LOL, thanks Delerium9! I've seen a few clips of Anderson losing it before, his giggle is hilarious in itself!
This defies explanation. You just have to see it for yourself:
Hieronymus Bosch-Inspired Portrait of Joan Rivers.
It's as wonderfully disturbing as it sounds.
Two for one:
(The Iron Throne)
Sorry, can't help it. I'm in the middle of watching Season 2. :p
>16 Delirium9: love it! Too funny! Made me laugh out loud, to coin a phrase.
Love that! (Does the fact that I'm on LibraryThing itself mark me as a grammar geek?)
We had that forecast for this past Saturday. Ended up a few degrees short of the predictions (sounds like a euphemism, doesn't it?) but was still pretty damn hot. How hot? See this tweet.
#36, #37 OUCH!
I won't complain about the temp here anymore, then... Right now it's 11pm and it's at 26 ºC (78.8 ºF) with 87% humidity. But during the day it can get and has gotten as high as 39 ºC (102.2 ºF) with as much as 90%+ humidity. The weather is all sorts of crazy. It's the rainy season, so you never know when it's going to pour, and I do mean POUR. The other day there was an electrical storm and there was even HAIL! Hail in the tropics. Scary.
Will be in the 100+F range this week here, but that's pretty normal for us. We think we are going to die when the humidity hits 40%.
#34 - I'm printing that and taking it to the hotel.
Wow, my cat rarely gives even a passing glance at the TV. Sometimes she looks twice if a kitten meows or a dog barks, and she gave an evil glare to some of the LotR sound effects, other than that, TV doesn't exist for her.
#40, 41 Kitty likes to lie on top of the TV. Well, since I don't have cable anymore I've never turned it on once since I moved two months ago, so there's that... (*)
The other cat that lived with me up until three months ago liked to sit on top of the TV too. And whenever I was watching DVDs and I paused for a while and the Samsung logo screensaver came on the screen, the cat would paw at the bouncing logo, looking at the TV upside down from where he was perched. It was adorable :)
(*) When I trade my old CRT set for a new flat screen in a couple of months, I don't know where Kitty will sit, but mos def *not* on the TV!
#41 MrsLee - You can buy DVD's for cat TV, fish & birds & things, the breeder I got my Taj & Tilly from had one & the kittens were so funny watching it, here's a pic:
& a video I took: http://flickr.com/gp/seanmaree/XyL975 (I think that link should work, I cant view it on my work PC coz of the version of flash player)
I had a cat that loved video games. Somewhere I have a picture of her on top of the television, staring and pawing at the screen. Too funny!
(45) Uh huh. The big ones pushed aside the smaller ones, I guess? In the cat world, might makes right...
I just noticed something about the "Cat Vision" picture: there are two black cats, two grey cats, two orange tabby cats, and two spotted cats...think about that for a minute or so!
Boy, that's such a twist on the employee recommendations one usually sees in book stores!
#57 - Joss Wheaden I think? Creator of Buffy/Angel/Firefly and other stuff.
Not the books of course, the TV series'
If you don't find the book you are looking for, it's because you're in the...
Oh, I'm sharing that one on my Muzy blog! And I'll only confess here that I initially, before even reading the picture, saw "organism" as "orgasm". Maybe I need a cold shower or something.
If that cat had googled Voltige, he had found that there are people who actually do that on a real horse.
From my perspective, it's best to be upfront, or I'll just think you're just being nice or have no clue whatsoever. I had to be hit over the head with a stick saying "I like you, lets date" before I noticed.
Navy Cereal could be a decent band if you make it Navy Serial. It'd be a comedy band who write songs about ridiculous things that happen on ship.
#87 - I guess my husband is in that band, too.
Me, I'm the Blue Zucchini. Hmn, I think we play the blues, with harmonicas.
Groxx triumphantly claims, "BLUE BEANS!!!" Though, technically, he's wearing shorts...
I'd be "Navy Bread". That isn't much after Blue Beans.
Let's hear a big hand for the latest thing in post-punk folk fusion: The Denim Rissoles!
Magenta Orange Chicken ... should have bought purple polka dot instead.
Morphy! Oh, Morphy!
Someone got into your lab with a camera...
..... uh oh....
These are not the doombas you are looking for...
*waves a hand at you*
Huh, I don't see anything here. Guess I'll have to look somewhere else for Doombas. *scratches head*
Good grief! Are the puffins safe?
ETA: And the poolboys!!!!!!!
Something tells me that Morphy will have a line or two of code making sure they are not considered targets.
The poolboys are safe and unharmed. I just use them to round up the poolboys. Bwhahahaha.
P.S. MrMorphy likes the Doomba with the "frickin' laser on its head."
I thought I was going to have a heart attack when he flipped in the lemon slice.
I have no idea if this is right or not, but it's a good word to have either way
Someone on the staff of Once Upon A Time has a great sense of humor!
I do like those blink-and-you'll-miss-it shout outs that people throw in.
Even if you're unfamiliar with the "Grumpy Cat" meme, this is great:
I thought they were doing this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9paXyL-jL3o
teehee, my little baby used to gnaw on the corners of my school textbooks, haha.
#141 fuzzi - Its applying Harry Potter humour to LOTR characters - the house elves in HP get free'd if given a piece of clothing...
BTW - I wouldn't have gotten it either except that I finally got around to reading HP recently...
& #136 isnt my pic, it was taken from icanhascheezburger, not sure I could have let a kitty chew at a book long enough for me to take a pic, lol...
Very cute, and I think the puppy looks like Benny! (for maggie1944)
#144 I am thirsty now... I saw a box of Satsuma juice in the background. *gulp*
Yes, the puppy does look like Benny. Very cute. And looks like he/she acts like Benny, too. Always wanting to lick your face! (-:
Just in from that premier news source, The Onion:
We're members of the notorious MLA Handbook gang here. Thanks for this chuckle.
153 - My faculty is strictly APA style. I'm still adapting (and mostly don't care). What is news is that I've heard rumours recently of new software preloaded with the editorial requirements of almost all journals. Dump your text in (with your headings marked as Heading 1/2/3 etc.) and it'll format it automatically. Combine it with your favourite bibliographic software and editing just became a whole lot easier.
Swallow what ever you're eating or drinking before you read this one:
This one's called 'Perfect Scores on the SAT Verbal Test'.
Only if it's in the right grammatical context! (*steps of soapbox*)
I enjoyed this when I saw it near Cheltenham, England, 30 years ago. And again when I scanned the slide today.
:) And just what is one supposed to do about that? As a child, it always broke my heart to see a flat toad in the road, but as a driver, they are very hard to avoid, if there is traffic, etc.
Lee, you've no doubt heard the late great Michael Flanders on that sign you always see near airports:
" 'CAUTION Low-flying Aircraft' ... Not much you could do really. Well I suppose you could take your hat off ..."
Be very careful, or take another route, I guess.
What I want to know is how they convince the toads to stay in the toad-crossing zone... ;)
#165 Easy. If the toads stray into the wrong area they are told to "hop it".
Did anybody make a call to radio station claiming people are encouraging toads to migrate across the street?
George is sitting on my desk watching me type - he fascinated by the underside of the keyboard and the clickity noise of the keys - though I am worried that he must start dabbling at my fingers (out of curiosity). Making me smile (and type nervously at the same time)
AnnaClaire I love it!
On second thought, make that :) :) :) :) <and so on>
A different take on "balloon animals", African style.
But still very wrong (dare I say that given what we know of the poster of #179, #178 could also be read as tactless?)
I'm confused. Was it something wrong with the video I linked in #178? Please clarify (if not in this thread then on my Profile).
(After edit: Confusion sorted out. Nothing wrong (apart from a missing smiley)
In the meanwhile, I'll be out hunting some Norwegian Seamoose...
182> I don't see how this is wrong, but it is very cute and funny.
183> I'm confused as well. "What we know of the poster...". Am I missing something obvious?
Lots of ???? from me, too.
I have personal experience that a moose can swim much faster than two people in a rubber, blow up canoe can paddle--but the sea was far away.......
No, no! I forgot the smiley! I meant wrong in a funny way! My husband and I both loved it. My favorite was the zebras at the end.
I loved the balloon animals - so often cartoon animals are too cutesy but aren't affected by the way they are drawn - these ones behave as they are shaped. I love the crocodile that can't submerge or even reach the water to paddle with his stubby little legs.
Haven't seen any owls here lately, and cats are always popluar, so here is a link to a video - the owl and the pussycat in real life. It's been out for a while, so apologies if you've already seen this one:
(178) Too funny! I'm proctoring exams today, and am glad no one was in the testing room when I watched this...I literally LOL'd!
Apologies if I have posted this before but 194 reminded me of it, so here goes:
Thank you College Humor for these:
And the great news is that you can download and use them!
Friend went to an upmarket kitchenware shop recently, and today showed me the bag, which had this message:
The relevance to the GD is surely clear.
That's like the error message I got on my computer:
"Unable to detect keyboard/keyboard missing.
Hit any key to continue."
#209 - Can I just mention that unless there is some sort of explanation I wont click links - & I know I'm not the only one, so if you want to share interesting stuff, can I ask that you please either post an explanation with the link - or post the pic directly in the thread if its a pic :)
Sorry, but I seem to be having a lot of trouble posting the pics directly.
Paper is NOT dead! (from a French language TV commercial--not sure if it's from France or Belgium)
Just cute: My 9 year-old granddaughter is a One Direction fanatic. (It's ok. Her momma lllloooooovvvvveeeeddd New Kids on the Block and I llllooooovvvveeeedddd the Beatles.)
Her 2 year-old sister was telling me all about Hannah, and said, "And she yikes the Wonder Action." Took us awhile to decipher...
It could have been worse... Think of the result if she heard the first word as 'wand'.
Remind me to tell you about the poster in my grandson's room. As a result of discipline at school, he made a poster listing all the words he's not supposed to say. *sigh*
(223) I like that idea, MerryMary!
A variation on writing sentences on the board?
For Emma's husband, I would like to dedicate this.
But the toilet paper is PINK! What, is it perfumed, too?
pgmcc, that was GREAT!!!!!! I love good puns, and that one was wonderful.
If you use recycled toilet paper, would have make it a tree with 'green' leaves? ;)
(stolen and posted on Facebook)
#229 Thank you, fuzzi. I find it harder and harder to meet people who appreciate good puns these days.
According to one of Issac Asimov's stories puns are the only true form of human humour.
Of course, I must thank Yamanekotei for providing the opportunity by posting that great picture.
My son also appreciates good puns. He said the unintentional ones are the funniest, and I agree.
As it happens, on RTE (the Irish national television channel) one of the commentators was describing this year's St. Patrick's Day parade in Dublin. People in animal costumes were on screen and the commentator said, "Oh! Look at the face on the bear behind. Oops! I don't think I'm supposed to say that on television."
*Giggling on pgmcc's posts*
All the rolls are pink, because it's Spring time in Northern hemisphere. Trees are blooming...including toiletrees. Let's hope for Emma's husband (or anybody in need) that he doesn't have to face a "deciduous-tree-in-winter" situation.
You are very welcome pgmcc, and I must thank Marissa_Doyle for posting the video.
I ran across pink toilet paper while visiting Scotland in my student days many years ago, and was bemused, then came up with the idea of pH-testing toilet paper for hypochondriacs. I'll bet I could have financed graduate school with that...
Not sure it comes in toilet roll size...but what a wheeze if it did. :)
When we were visiting London many years ago the toilet paper in public restrooms had imprinted: "Now wash your hands...Now wash your hands...Now wash your hands............"
You know, I don't have to stay here and be insulted. I can go home...and be insulted.
I'm warching you Sir Folio.
BTW our in-common books list looks interesting.
>249 pgmcc: Yep, you can leave and we can insult you behind your back!
#251 Thank you, Morph. I will rest easy knowing that my being insulted can go on without me.
pgmcc ... it does look interesting... and pretty much all over the place... : )
Question: would you rather be insulted to your face, or not know about being insulted behind your back?
Ignorance is bliss. :)
fuzzi, thank you for asking but it would appear my preferences will not affect the quality, timing, direction or source of the insults. Blissful ignorance can only be enjoyed by those who do not work themselves into a frenzy wondering what others are saying about them.
Of course, Oscar was correct when he said there is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
I prefer not being talked about. I'd like the gift of invisibility, please.
(255) Of course, Oscar was correct when he said there is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
"Your Majesty is like a big jam donut with cream on the top..." ;)
258 That has the sound of Blackadder about it.
While attending a neice's wedding in the Glasgow Cathedral I wandered into the lower reaches of the building. There was a vault which was dedicated to Archbishop Blackadder.
243 - So here I was, looking up the definition of "witt" to see why it would give offence. I couldn't see it. Then it occurred to me, the dropped "t" goes at the front of the word. Maybe I should go to bed.
#260 fuzzi, was that the sketch in which they kept blame all the gaffes on George Bernard Shaw?
If you are not familiar with the TV series, Blackadder, starring Rowan Atkins, I suggest you look it up.
If you like Monty Python I would suspect you will like Blackadder.
Oh, definitely give Blackadder a chance, fuzzi--light years away from Mr. Bean. I especially love the Elizabethan series.
I like the WWI series best, but it has been a while since I watched the others so my opinion might change if I saw them again.
@197 - pgmcc I love it
Our local on-line newspaper has a weekely cute pet's blog. Unfortunately I can't link to the individual photos, but personal favourite is rusty - you can just see his nose a-twitching
They haven't changed a bit :-)
This is probably the silliest thing I've seen all year...but how appropriate.
Cats...Roombas...life is good. :)
"Over-analyzing cats and looking looking at cute things" is one thing. Throw in "doing things of questionable copyright legality" and you have this video.
#272- They must have lobotomized that cat to get it into that costume! Poor thing. I love how the little ducky doesn't really want to be away from the Roomba/cat.
MrsLee, what I want to know is how they got the cat to stay on the Roomba, apart from maybe superglue.
The shark/duck/cat/roomba video was completely inane. And I'm sitting here helplessly giggling.
That video made me smile. :) I don't think my cat(s) would do that.
My guys stalk my robovac while its moving away from them, then run & hide when it turns towards them, lol...
This one made me laugh:
& this one too:
