The Internet is a vast place, full of dark secrets and Reddit inside jokes. Puppets Glove and Boots do their very best to tack down just 10 things on the internet they don’t understand. I have two questions for my puppet pals:
1. How do you even whittle the list down to TEN things when there are Patrick Star memes to talk about?
2. Why is there a photo of Joseph Gordon-Levitt on your wall? Don’t get me wrong, I fully approve, but I don’t know how he fits into this video.
Other than that, thanks for reminding me Instant Cosby exists. I’m just going to waste my afternoon on Bill Cosby and his sweaters now.
With a land as magical as Disney World and Disneyland, some urban legends are sure to follow.
The most recent Disneyland urban legend to take yet another round on the Internet is the myth that if you yell “Andy’s coming” in front of Toy Story characters at Disney, they’ll automatically drop to the floor just like in the movies. While this is a great movie-to-real-life ploy, the actors no longer do this.
According to one Disney World guide in this video, Jesse and Woody used to drop to the floor but the parks have since changed their policy, so now the most that they do is freeze in place. We’re assuming Disney axed this policy because having their characters drop to the floor was scaring off the kids. Yeah, we could imagine:
Kid: Hey, Woody! You’re my hero! I love you so much! Can you sign this please?
Random stranger: ANDY’S COMING! (Woody drops to the ground)
Kid: Mommy, I think I killed Woody! *Cries*

10. Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone
If Harry Potter doesn’t make you happy, then I have no words for you. Seeing the heartwarming face of Hagrid, or witnessing the blossoming friendship of the Trio is enough to cure a hangover. The nostalgia of your Potter childhood is enough to give you butterflies — and not the kind that will only worsen the feelings in your stomach. Just take note to not follow up this movie with The Chamber of Secrets. You know, that scene when Ron throws up the slugs…
9. Drop Dead Gorgeous
You might not know of this film, but you will at some point in your lifetime. Drop Dead Gorgeous is both horrifying and hilarious at the same time. I suggest this as a hangover cure because it’s kind of like the gem on pageant mockery. Seeing the way these girls battle it out for the top title of pageant glory will take your mind off of your own sad state. If you don’t get around to watching the film, just sit back and be mesmerized by this gif from the movie:
8. Toy Story
Toy Story is a film that lives in the hearts of everyone who is legally old enough to drink. Watching this movie whilst hungover will make you forget all of your worries and remember that you have a friend in Woody and Buzz. It might also inspire you to dig up some old childhood toys and cuddle your nausea away. That, or you can slowly fall asleep during the movie and slumber away to a happy place.
7. Lost in Translation
Lost In Translation earned director Sofia Coppola a lot of attention for her notorious dreamy visuals and uncanny writing. Some of the scenes of Bill Murray are hilarious, but with an undertone of sadness. Amongst basically every Sofia Coppola film, Lost In Translation is good for a hangover because it has beautiful, sleepy music with lovely visuals that will sooth your mind and ease you into a deep sleep.
6. Pretty in Pink
Pretty in Pink is the kind of movie where you really, truly want to cheer for the main character to find happiness. Following Andy (and her adorable sidekick, Duckie) will give you some purpose and motivation during an otherwise hopeless time. It’ll also motivate you to get off the couch and completely DIY your entire wardrobe to look like Andy’s and/or Duckie’s.
5. Mean Girls
The question is, when ISN’T it ever a good time to watch Mean Girls? Of course, you know every line, every expression, and every comedic pause that occurs in this cinematic gem. So instead of being a bump on a bump lying on your couch, you’ll at least be reciting the classic lines in Mean Girls. You’ll also have Janice Ian to discourage you from any future hangovers.
4. The Social Network
The Social Network is the type of film that will stimulate your brain. Its quick wit and fast-paced lines will hold your concentration (and whatever else in your stomach) for a few hours. It also might discourage you from logging onto Facebook and seeing evidence of last night’s regret.
3. Napoleon Dynamite
Napoleon Dynamite is so mind-numbingly pointless, it will require very little of your hungover attention. On the other hand, it’s also side-splittingly hilarious, so it could possibly single-handedly cure your hangover. Napoleon Dynamite gets up to so many shenanigans just trying to fight off the school bullies. Seeing his many (often weird and random) accomplishments will make you want to say “forget this hangover” and then conquer the world. Heck yes!
2. The Wizard of Oz
This might seem like a completely random way to cure a hangover, but hear me out. The Wizard of Oz is like a treasure trove of happiness because of its magical colours and famous songs. The film will for sure stimulate your fried brain after a long night of partying. The best part is that the film’s heroine, Dorothy, reminds us all that there’s no place like home. This statement will comfort you after a wild New Years Eve.
1. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Lord of the Rings makes the number one spot on this list for endless reasons. Primarily, the length of the film is enough to lull you into a nice sedation. The film is so addicting that you will be practically forced to watch the rest of the LOTR movies, which will keep you occupied for your entire hangover. By the end of it all, you can give your self a nice round of Hobbit-esque applause.
Break out the three-dimensional glasses: Walt Disney announced Tuesday that it will release the computer-animated hits “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2″ as a 3-D double feature on Oct. 2.
The special presentation is slated to run for two weeks only.
Audiences will also see a 3-D trailer for the new “Toy Story 3,” which opens June 18, 2010. Like the 1995 original and its 1999 sequel, the movie features the voices of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen.
