This commercial made me laugh. I'm not shilling for them, but whoever did this commercial has a certain genius. "I'm on a horse."

Today, Elfscribe's contribution to her LJ bud's erudition and lore is the Random Shakespearean Insult Generator. Now you can have your very own Insult, useful for all sorts of occasions, including something to say disparagingly to an uncooperative fic.  Go here.  If you do, please post your very own personal insult in the comments here.   
Here's what I got just now: Thou gorbellied elf-skinned joithead!

Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] morethmusing !   I hope you have a great day.  

Since you are a catapult aficionado, I thought I'd dredge up an oldie but goodie.  I don't remember who first did the gifs for this priceless sequence, but the original is no longer where I bookmarked it and I could only find it in fragments on youtube.  
(I just adore this) Enjoy!

Happy birthday to [personal profile] just_ann_now     Sorry to be a bit late.  Hope you had a wonderful day.  In honor of our mutual interest in Swordspoint, I'm giving you a youtube vid I found that has a Truly Effective Sword Fighting Technique (plus some hot guys).   Enjoy!  *g*   
Addendum:  I found out this is from a movie called Romantic Assassin.  Here is a longer clip with subtitles.  Even funnier, imho. And what the heck are those guys doing buried up to their necks?  LOL.  Gotta find this movie.

Since I'm reposting stuff on my f-list, just saw this on friend [livejournal.com profile] andolinn 's LJ, which she got from [livejournal.com profile] orlisbunny   and I have to pass it on because I'm crying with laughter here.  Just check out this guy's complaint letter about the food and entertainment he got on Virgin airlines.
Needed a laugh.

Watching footage on youtube of the journalist throwing shoes at Bush. Here's something for a few minutes of non-productive fun: http://www.sockandawe.com/

And while doing that, for some existential reason, youtube brought up Monty Python and I enjoyed watching this classic again. So, I'm sharing. Monty Python definitely makes me happy.

Here's a copy of the AP news article about the winner of the Bulwer-Lytton award for "best" worst novel opening.

Top dishonors in writing go to Washington man

Thu Aug 14, 12:15 AM ET

SAN JOSE, Calif. - A grotesque comparison of a steamy love affair to a New York City street has won a Washington man this year's grand prize in an annual contest of bad writing.

Garrison Spik, a 41-year-old communications director and writer, took top honors in San Jose State University's 26th annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest with this opening sentence to a nonexistent novel:

"Theirs was a New York love, a checkered taxi ride burning rubber, and like the city their passion was open 24/7, steam rising from their bodies like slick streets exhaling warm, moist, white breath through manhole covers stamped 'Forged by DeLaney Bros., Piscataway, N.J.'"

The contest is named after Victorian novelist Edward George Earl Bulwer-Lytton, whose 1830 novel "Paul Clifford" famously begins "It was a dark and stormy night."

Entrants are asked to submit bad opening sentences to imaginary novels. Awards are given for many categories, including awards for "purple prose" and "vile puns." The top winner receives a $250 prize.

Other noteworthy submissions:

"'Toads of glory, slugs of joy,' sang Groin the dwarf as he trotted jovially down the path before a great dragon ate him because the author knew that this story was a train wreck after he typed the first few words."

• Alex Hall, Greeley, Colo.

"Like a mechanic who forgets to wipe his hands on a shop rag and then goes home, hugs his wife, and gets a grease stain on her favorite sweater — love touches you, and marks you forever."

• Beth Fand Incollingo, Haddon Heights, N.J.

I'm sorry folks, I know I have a demented sense of humor but I laughed so hard at this one, I thought I'd pop something. You know some days you've got your head up your ass . . . other days. . .  Poor bastard.
My favorite part is the girl screaming.

Found a bunch of funny "How _____Movie Should Have Ended" animations on youtube.

Here's one for the Lord of the Rings. The funny thing about this is quite some time back when I was explaining the plot to my very practical engineer husband, he immediately came up with the exact same solution presented in this vid. Ha.

And here's how Dead Man's Chest Should Have Ended. I actually think it it should have ended with Will and Jack kissing.

There are more . . .

And now for something completely silly that my daughter just played for me.  Dumbledore teaches the Potter gang how to swear . . .

 A friend of mine sent this to me.  It's a very curious optical illusion. She swears that if you stare at it long enough, you should be able to see the ocean . . .  

Maybe I need better glasses . . . )
