Google Glass went on limited beta release this week, with a few customers allowed to use the technology for 24 hours.
While I’m still iffy about the idea of having a smartphone on my head, it sure seems like wearing a pair of Google Glasses will enhance any momentous occasion.
Because in the case of YouTube comic Derrick Hannan, St. Paddy’s Day sure seemed like one hell of a ride.
I don’t want to ruin what goes down for him.
But if his adventure is any indication of how Google Glasses works when under the influence, I don’t think Hannan will be asked to test any more technology Google comes out with in the near future…
Are you sick of Justin Timberlake yet?
“NO,” said everyone on the planet.
Ending his crazy, packed week with featured appearances on SNL and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Timberlake treated his fans with the fourth round of History of Rap with his partner in crime Fallon.
Covering the likes of Biggie, Missy Elliot, Jay-Z and Eminem, you can be sure that EPIC-ness ensued.
So instead of seeing me blab on about how amazing this is, just watch.
Oh, this is cruel…yet still so funny.
Upon realizing that his friend Mark is extremely terrified of poopy diapers, Jason decides to play a prank by filling one a diaper with some chocolate pudding.
It looks awfully gross from the video (dark and watery much?), but the reactions here are priceless.
Seeing a load like that on the diaper would stink up the whole house, you would think that Mark would have noticed that it was all a joke. But alas, he was too concentrated staying away from the dreaded poop.
Good try, girls! Really, I do mean it. While some of you didn’t really put any effort into it, I do appreciate those who tried to capture Schwarzenegger’s gravitas and manliness. Brava!
If you haven’t heard Justin Timberlake’s name at least once or twice this week, you’re definitely living under a rock. He is dropping his new album, The 20/20 Experience on March 19th (although there was a free stream of it on iTunes! Read our review HERE).
He practically lived in NBC’s famous 30 Rockefeller building. Right after his fifth time hosting Saturday Night Live, he celebrated his comeback by spending a week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Yes, we can say that it’s been a huge two weeks for him.
But in case you have been living under a rock, we’ve compiled videos of what he’s done this week. Can we just have him on Jimmy Fallon all the time, please?
SNL SKIT: Opening Monolouge
If you’re not overwhelmed by the amount of talent that is on the stage, you’re wrong.
SNL: It’s A Date
YES. Andy Samberg returns to SNL to reprise his and Timberlake’s famous “Dick in a Box” duo. It’s a bit lengthy, but I promise you that it’s worth it.
If Justin really did the advertising for a restaurant called Veganville, I’d be dashing through the door to try to get there first. Plus the Harlem Shake in the end was really unexpected. Who cares if the phase is over? Justin revived it for one last time.
Do you ever wonder what you animal you would be if you were to be in the next life? Maybe a playful dog, spending your day chasing any animal that dares to come onto your territory. How about a cat that just lays around, being admired by your owners over how cute you are? Or a sloth, where you literally sleep and it’s acceptable because, well, you’re a sloth. Aren’t you curious to see what you might be? Take the quiz down below, and see what you might be if you are to be born as an animal in the next life!
Is there a better way to welcome the new pope than giving your friend a wet willie during live television? No, there is not.
According to the prankster’s friend, redditor freenarth, his school didn’t find the prank so funny and suspended him.
let’s be honest here, if there is a God, he wouldn’t send you to hell for it, let alone suspend you for it. I’m sure he’s a reasonable guy — wait, what? He killed 42 children for calling his prophet, “baldy?” Well, then. We’re all screwed. See you all in hell.
There are a number of aspects of being a good person that many people seem to miss. One commonly missed memo seems to be not acting like a totally douchebag when someone is just trying to do their job.
It’s even worse when that person is pretty much obligated to ignore you because hey, the customer is always right, right? WRONG. They are not but we can’t tell them that.
But imagine if you were this street performer who is trying their best to entertain people in hopes they throw a buck or two into your hat. Just watch as some guy tries his best to make the street performer to break character. Well, needless to say, the douchebag does succeed on his quest of being a grade A jerk but he probably wasn’t expecting to get punched in the face for his “efforts.”
Kudos, Silver Man for standing up for yourself.

Why not jazz up your favourite movies with a little dose of Batman? In this YouTube vid by PistolShrimps, the dark knight makes a cameo in classic flicks like Forest Gump, The Wizard of Oz, and Dirty Dancing. LOL, this spoof just nails that deep raspy voice. Love it!
Come on, sooouuunndd it ooouuut. His name is Jorge Mario Bergolio, but WFAN radio sportscaster Mike Francesca has a hard time announcing the name of the new pope. What’s funny about this video is how confused and irritated Francesca gets. Maybe he should’ve stuck with the pope’s new name: Francis I. I’d be careful Mike, The pope is buddy-buddy with the big G, you wouldn’t want them to smite you! Lol!
People are becoming so good at Photoshop these days that I feel like I need to expect them like I do with designer purses. I mean, yeah sometimes there are photos that are just obviously photoshopped that it’d be silly to think they’re real at all (i.e. sharks swimming in a flooded subway station). But then, there are those clever Photoshop jobs that make it sometimes difficult to distinguish it’s authenticity.
Whether or not this photo of Pete Wentz is real or not, just take a look at Bruno Mars in the background obviously fangirling over the Fall Out Boy bassist. He’s just like, “OHMYGERD. LOOK! A REAL FAMOUS PERSON WALKING DOWN THE STREET. NOOOO, REALLY?” while his friend doesn’t seem to care as much.
But will his fangirling skills ever top our queen Jennifer Lawrence’s own freakout over Jack Nicholson? I think not.
You know when you’re trying to catch a movie, you always factor in the time it takes for the trailers to roll and the title cards to play? It’s that little bit of time that makes you go, “why yes, I can be a little late to this movie. Let me grab some more M&Ms and squirt a little bit more butter on my popcorn like the true ‘foodie’ I am.”
Well, if that movie began with this overly enthused (and most likely drugged up) Skrillex fan as the MGM Lion, I would never never be late for a movie again.
Obviously, repetition gets a little boring, so maybe MGM can switch it up from time to time with Jennifer Lawrence:
Who would you prefer to see? Jennifer Lawrence or the drugged up Skrillex fan? Comment and tell us below!
The man behind “Harry Potter in 99 Seconds” strikes again with a hilarious take on why all your favourite Disney movies end in lies.
Jon Cozart hits you where it hurts as he heartbreakingly tells us how The LIttle Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and Pocahontas would play out if we applied some modern knowledge today. In his take, Ariel has to live with an oil spill, the government is racially profiling Jasmine as Aladdin is thrown in Guantanamo Bay, Belle is being charged with bestiality, and Pocahontas caught a disease as spread by New World settlers.
Kind of grim but we love it anyways!
WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:
It’s one thing if your cat is being a whiny loser in the middle of the night, but it’s another to have a snoring dog. The former is more annoying in the middle of the night while the latter is a form of late night comedic relief.
It’s even funnier when you’re dog snores like Daffy Duck.
What? You watched the video and thought the dog sounds more like Donald Duck? Okay not to argue over the internet or anything, but we’re on the OP’s side because this is what Daffy Duck sounds like:
THIS IS WHAT DONALD DUCK SOUNDS LIKE:
ARE WE COOL NOW? DO WE ALL AGREE IT’S DAFFY AND NOT DONALD DUCK? THANK YOU!
Old Spice has finally replaced the Old Spice guy (nooooooooo) with Wolfdog as their pseudo-mascot/marketing director (yay!).
He’s got his cheesy business toys, some awards on the walls and two assistants so yeah, I think he’s doing pretty well for his first day on the job. It’s also kind of creepy how the deodorant seems to be reading my mind as Wolfdog kind of looks like a direwolf pup (Game of Thrones! NINETEEN more days!!). No? Just me. Fine. Don’t be excited.
Just start a petition to get Wolfdog to teach a Marketing 101 class and we’ll be good. I’m sure he’d be a more interesting prof than those old guys in the boring tweed suits.

When watching animal documentaries, I sometimes think yes, this doesn’t need the gravitas of Morgan Freeman to keep me hooked. While I do love Mr. Freeman’s voice (getting him to read me a bed time story is at the top of my bucket list), animals are pretty entertaining on their own.
Just watch this video of penguins just being penguins. They’re so freaking cute slipping and sliding all the over place. It also wouldn’t even be out of place if you yelled, “Go home, penguin! You’re drunk!” right after they fall. Ugh, penguins. Why are you so cute?
This is Charlie, the sweater wearing parrot.
Charlie was a neglected pet who had plucked out his feathers, according to the BBC.
The charity’s co-ordinator, Rebecca Blagg, began knitting the eclectus parrot sweaters after the U.K. bird charity Safehaven rescued the poor bird in 2007.
“He was the worst we’d ever seen. He was literally like an oven-ready chicken, he was that bald,” she told the BBC. “He was so cold without his feathers, he was shivering.”
Since being nursed back to health, Bagg has said Charlie has become so accustomed to his multitude of sweaters (He has ones in green, blue and peach and brown ones) that he becomes quite angry and agitated when he’s not wearing one.
“Knitting’s not my forte and I’ve never knitted for a parrot before,” she said. “But he seemed to like it.”
I’ve heard that Russians are good at holding their liquor but I’ve never heard that they have a knack for instilling fear in people.
Comedian Dan Soder thinks that Russians are scary, so scary that he would rather stay lost than ask for directions. Hilariously enough, Soder’s fear has brought him a new revelation: If he’s ever in a sticky situation, he’ll pretend to be Russian to scare people off. This is a fool proof plan, because everyone is afraid of Russians…right?
Maybe not. I’m not sure pretending to be Russian will prevent you from getting mugged or roughed up, but maybe it will work for Soder. He does have the Russian accent down pat.
My favourite part of this act is when he tries to explain how the whole scenario would play out if two guys came up to him and he pretended to be Russian to avoid conflict:
“Yo man, you know what neighbourhood your in?”
(Cue spot on Russian accent)”You think this bad neighbourhood?”
I think his next stand up act should just be him speaking in a Russian accent. I could see it now. ”I am funny… yes?”

Just when I thought I was okay with how the world was turning out, comedian Adam Newman just had to tweet this question and make me lose faith in humanity.
Just to let you know, if you’re ever asked what do you hate more: cauliflower or racism, cauliflower is not the answer. Those guys who replied were probably just joking (ha ha ha) but in real life, and I repeat, cauliflower is not the answer.
Get it? Got it? Good.
