I Know I’m Cynical…

…but sometimes cynicism equals hilarity.
Here is some partly cynical, mostly hysterical junk I found on the web over the past couple days. First we’ll start with my favorite t-shirt designs from Busted Tees (I wouldn’t waste my time on that site if I were you). If you don’t understand them all, you must not spend 8 hours a day on the interwebs like me. That is probably a good thing.
I hate when people wear t-shirts with clever pop culture references because they’re usually not funny and they become outdated and stale in like a month. So basically I found the following fresh gems in a sea of moldy cliches.
Let’s see, there are 9 of these, so how about we go least funny to most funny? That’s fun because then I get to force my opinion upon you.
I’ve seen this before but I forgot how funny that guy looks.
I need to wear this shirt because every time I try to make fun of someone I make an even dumber mistake myself.
It’s funny because the hat loosely resembles the shape of Canada. Clever.
Same reason as the previous one, except the word “beard” is slightly funnier than the word “hat”.
I can see never forgetting William Wallace, MLK Jr., or Mother Theresa. But dinosaurs didn’t really teach us any lessons and weren’t really valiant or courageous. So never forgetting them is absurdly funny!
So very true. LOL!
If you don’t get this, I’m sorry. If you do, you’re welcome. I’ll let you try to find out for yourself what hilarious new viral video this is referring to.
Gah! The Shredder!
The poor guy is completely square. And they pointed it out!
Alright, now that we’ve properly offended Mexicans, Canadians, Wyomingites, and fans of Bill O’Reilly, we’ll proceed to the REALLY funny stuff. I’m serious, the second half of this post is way more funny than the first half. Ever seen DEmotivational posters? You can see a bunch of them at despair.com which are all SFW. I got most of the following demotivationals from other NSFW sites which I won’t list here.
Here is cynicism at its finest, and most hilarious. Most of these speak for themselves and require no commentary from the peanut gallery, so I’ll spare you. There’s 12 of ‘em, ranked pretty funny to really funny.
Finally, someone so eloquently put into words why I don’t want to use Linux!
OK, these are starting to veer from the “motivational poster” motif to the “make fun of people” motif, but that’s funny too. This picture can’t be real! What’s sad is I sometimes willingly go to Broad Ripple on Friday nights and surround myself with tools just like these. Does that make me a tool?
These last few are by far the funniest. We’re moving away from dumb people and into the realm of awesome people. It’s funny for the same reason Chuck Norris jokes are funny.
This was the funniest to me by far. Some poor guy tries to make a demotivational poster about harpoons: “HARPOONS – Man Them” (not sure why that’s funny, but it doesn’t matter). Little did he know he was about to spark a bitter war of ignorance amongst his fellow demotivators. The second guy comes along with a good point: “FAIL – Missiles are NOT harpoons.” That’s already a funny demotivational right there.
But wait! Here comes the third guy, obviously a navy veteran, to correct the second guy with his intellect and wit! “I know even more than the both of you” he says. “It’s a Harpoon Missile, duh.” Haha! LOL! Even funnier! But it’s not over…
Guy #4 gets the last laugh. He gloriously rips apart the third guy’s grammar. Brilliant! “Double” only has one “B”! I love it! I bet he had like 6 people proof read it to make sure it was completely correct so he wouldn’t get ripped in yet another recursively hilarious picture. I guess I could get him for not putting the “B” at the end of his sentence in quotations, but that would be the pot calling the kettle black, so I’ll abstain.
Hilarious. Of all those, I think my favorite was the Dinosaur T-shirt.
Favorite has to go to the Awesome Star Wars poster. And maybe even just Lord Vader in that poster.
If you’re interested, the “Man the Harpoons” type posters are typically used in response to someone who may have just put up a picture of a questionably fat woman. Yes, it’s wrong and terrible. Yes, I’m embarrassed to know that.
Now it’s that much funnier!
Its hard to pick a favorite but i have to agree with jonathan and go with the dino t-shirt.
