21 degrees out there

November 24, 2010

Eek. Our traffic woes when the weather gets like this are awful – between the steep hills and slick layer of ice you can be sure is beneath any snow that falls, it gets dicey out there. Here’s a compilation of videoed traffic mayhem that displays how dicey, even with snow chains and salted roads:

*Stick with it until at least 3:00 – although it will  be tough to tear your eyes away from any of it!

I can’t seem to get the live widget thingie to post correctly, but click the image to go to the site and see for yourself. It’s just horrible.

Um, right.

Especially when I think back to my own brief days in a telemarketing office. Based on that experience (calling from the scuzziest office in Harris County on behalf of a fake Texas State Troopers’ Association, woot) I feel absolutely certain that this guy’s posts are not in any way exaggerated or invented. Scary.

I’m a language-friendly gal, but I’m fairly certain I wouldn’t do any better than these folks! My apologies, Iceland!

The world is, at times, truly unknowable – definitely a place that falls outside my capacity for understanding. Grab your eye bleach and have a look at this guy. If you think having an ass on the front of your chest makes you feel a little sick, wait until you see JUST HOW MUCH this guy is enjoying said ass on the front of his chest. Then consider this: Someone is recording the video. That’s right, a real person in the same room with this guy and his pec-jumping antics. Ewww.

I am thrilled to find this, purportedly from Iceland – Hysterical stuff!

Fab montage of “problems” which infomercials strive to solve for us first-worlders.

I giggled the whole way through! Hilarious side note: All the portable toilets in Seattle are made by a company named “Honey Bucket.” We’ve lived here for nearly 6 years, and I still crack up every time I see one!

If you’re like us, you’ve arrived at baggage claim after a flight only to feel a piercing fury at the sight of your brand new, just-bought-for-this-trip suitcase coming around the baggage carousel, pummeled into an unrecognizable, shapeless, grease-streaked mess.

Well, here’s a fun video that certainly could be interpreted as a product endorsement by folks like me who are desperate to have a suitcase that lasts more than 3 plane rides. It consists of 5 suitcases, some melons, and an elephant, all together in the name of science! Enjoy!

Up close with some Palin fans

I’m very pleased to have found this. And also nauseated.

I recommend pouring yourself a double before settling in to watch. I’ll tell you this: That old guy at the end of the video isn’t the only one who’s really afraid of what’s happening in America.

Stupid goatees…

And opinions formed with ignorance…

Real men piss on walls

Dad/uncle/cousin surprises his son/nephew/cousin in the shower with a video camera, with embarassing results for all. Tee-hee! Not at all what you’re thinking, but still pretty funny…

Burglar disguise FAIL

October 30, 2009

OK, now that I’ve got my giggles under control, in Iowa these two guys were picked up for breaking into someone’s home. Seems their disguise choice gave them away. I’ve got to hand it to them for wisely using the resources they had on hand, I guess. But I’m still snickering!

black-marker-faces

Police received a call Friday night that two men with hooded sweatshirts and painted faces had tried to break into a man’s home in Carroll, Iowa.

When police stopped a vehicle matching the caller’s description blocks away, they were stunned by the men’s disguises.

There were no ski masks or stockings pulled over their heads; instead, Matthew Allan McNelly, 23, and Joey Lee Miller, 20, streaked their faces with permanent black marker.

So this is what happens when you go out of your way to be an ass – hilarious!!

One of Those Days

This sums it up perfectly, somehow:

This lady’s bad day, compounded by getting towed, just got a bit more satisfying (even if it is probably fake!):

A tad predictable, but deliciously icky just the same!
