This is a simple, short instructional video on what it means to be a man. I want you to notice that Mario Bros. is mentioned. Now when my wife asks me why I play Mario 3 so often in my garage, I can direct her to this video and tell it it’s cause I’m a [...]

On my daily web surf I came across this disturbing article.

These are ranked from really funny to extremely funny, and I tried to include a nice mixture of sketches, Digital Shorts, and fake commercials for your enjoyment.

I grew up riding a bus to school that passed a mental hospital called Central State on the west side of Indianapolis. It was abandoned in the mid 90s, and has been around for over 100 years.
