Laughter is the best medicine. I have to thank the people who had the courage or stupidity to record these videos and put them on-line. The nerve of some people is unbelievable. The gullibility of others is almost sad. Sometimes, I don’t mean to laugh, but I can’t help it. You’ll laugh, too. Some of these are meant to be funny, some are accidental. Either way you’ll get a good laugh out of these videos from youtube.com.
I’ve listed my top ten favorite in reverse. You could put them in any order. They’re all good for a laugh.
10. Everyone is taking jabs at Sanjaya on American Idol. Jay Leno never misses an opportunity for offbeat humor, so he, too has chimed in on American Idol. This bit features the Oak Ridge Boys and one of the contestants who got the boot before Sanjaya. Hang in there with it, Leno may start slow, but he reels his audience in before it’s over. Poor Sanjaya. See the comedy bit here.
9. I admit it, I’m still a kid at heart. A little animation can bring a lot of laughter. The following clip is from Family Guy. I love this clip because I can really relate to it. Even though I’ve had this done to me a hundred times, I’d still do it to someone just for laughs. In fact, I hope my mom doesn’t read this. She is in for it! This is funny.
8. This is hysterical. It’s about another baby, but this one isn’t animated. I’ve never seen this happen. I never even imagined it. This is a short one. “Poof” and it’s over. It is a great clip.
7. Here is a good clean comic video. It is just plain fun. It’s great for your silly moods, and a great example of how computers have enhanced animation. It doesn’t take a profession, just someone with a good sense of humor and a lot of creativity. Take a look.
6. Do you ever watch MadTV on FOX? Those people are crazy. The comedians and writers toe the line of insanity. This youtube.com video just isn’t right. It is a take-off of the MTV show Cribs. This one ribs Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. It’s not right, but it’s funny. Watch it on youtube here.
5. I’ve always heard that you shouldn’t laugh at the calamity of others. Accidents do make us laugh, though.. The following video not only makes me laugh, it also makes me hurt. I don’t like to see people hurt, but when they are doing something idiotic….Well, may I say, you reap what you sow? Watch this one all the way through, you’ll crack a smile somewhere along the way. One of my favorite clips is the horse. Check out the video.
4. Borat, you laughed through the movie. Did you see the interview on Letterman? Even Letterman can’t help laughing despite his attempts to keep a straight face. Borat blew away the deadpan humor of the Late Show with David Letterman. Haven’t had enough of Borat? Find more Borat on youtube.com. If you like Borat, there will be other related Borat links after you view this one.
3. Sometimes the truth is not only stranger than fiction, but funnier, too. In the next video comedian Judson Laipply traces the “Evolution of Dance” in six minutes. It is one of the most clever videos I’ve seen. In the course of the video, Laipply demos a variety of dance styles, some you may have even forgotten. This is worth the six minutes of your time, because you don’t want to miss a minute of the video. For best streaming, download the video before you watch it. After seeing this, I’m out to find more Laipply. Here is the “Evolution of Dance.”
2. I like to fish, that’s how I stumbled upon this hysterical video. Bill Dance the fishing guru makes a dunce of himself in this clip. Bill Dance’s problems only go from bad to worse in this blooper video. I’m not sure if he did any fishing this day, but he sure did produce some funny video. Here it is in Google Video. I think I have laughed at Dance bloopers more than any other video on this list.
Make sure you come back to Associated Content to view the #1 laugh out loud video.
1. You knew it had to be here. The whole world has laughed at William Hung’s version of Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs.” His try-out on American Idol has to be one of the most watched and well known in the history of the television show. It’s not just Hung’s song and dance that make you laugh, but the judges’ reactions are classic. I’m not sure I would have been able to handle the try-out with any class. I think I would have been rolling in the floor with laughter. Take a look at the memorable William Hung “She Bangs” video here.
Don’t feel too bad for laughing. Hung is the one laughing to his way to the bank. He has made a fortune on this misfortunate try-out. He shows in clubs, and audiences love him. You have to admire someone who has the guts to pursue a dream. I wonder if he will ever return to engineering.
As quickly as videos are uploaded to the net, we’ll find new funnies tomorrow. For today, enjoy these vids and let some laughter into your day.
