  1. That’s prbly the best between two ferns I’ve ever seen haha.. Funny stuff.

    • agree! that was hilarious

  2. Cue Republican opposition criticism in 5…4…3…2…1

  3. cue liberal barry water carriers in 5…oh wait you’re already here.


    • So you’re one of those who hates Obama because his policies get blocked by Republicans who don’t know any better and want to stop the population from having things they should’ve had decades ago and because the huge demand for affordable healthcare crashed a website due to server overload?

      Are you even sane?

      Makes me feel a little pity for the US citizens when people such as yourself can’t see the good he’s done for you so far or failed to do because of ruch Republicans only looking after themselves.

      • I knew Dazz was delusional, now I know why.

        • Dazz, a Brit, often criticizes American audiences for their taste in film. I should point out that these are likely the same people who voted for the president of whom he is so fond. If I could, I would let Dazz have Obama to rule over him and his countrymen. It seems he is both eager and willing to bow down to him.

      • Oh, Dazz. Why? Why come to the aid of an elitist, hypocritical, power-hungry American president, who clearly believes that he and his party should not only rule completely, but also dominate all discourse, when you are not even a citizen of the US and have literally no idea what is actually going on here?! You may feel high on yourself when you offer such comments, and you may get a few people agreeing with you from time to time, but have no doubt, there are many, many others who likely laugh and roll their eyes when reading your statements. I should advise you that Obama had all of his policies…including the disasterous “Obamacare”…put into effect during the first two years if his presidency, when his party ruled both the House and Senate, so we are currently living under his policies. I should also inform you that more people have lost their health insurance than gotten it under Obamacare, and many, if not most, of those who signed up for Obamacare are those who lost their insurance as a result of it. We also have more people in poverty and on Food Stamps than ever before, the unemployment rate is still hovering around 7 to 8 percent, the IRS has selectively audited people based on their politic persuasion, the Dept. of “Justice” has investigated reporters, and oh…there was that whole Benghazi thing, where the administration said for weeks, before the election, that our ambassador was murdered in Libya after a riot resulting from a YouTube video, rather than a preplanned terroristic attack. But what do I know…I’m just an American living here. You’re a Brit who clearly gets the “unpoliticized” truth from your media there, or our obviously “impartial” mainstream media here.

      • Oh…and I completely forgot to allude to the close to 18 trillion dollars’ worth of debt that he has created, double what existed under all previous presidents combined. It is projected to be 20 trillion dollars by the time he leaves office. For all of the demonizing of the “one percent” that he and his party have done, it has also been shown that, even if our “democratic” government, ruling over “free” people, confiscated all of their wealth, it would not fund the government for more than three to six months. Guess what? That means the “99 percent” owe a lot of money, via taxes, to pay our debt. Hence, we have more people in poverty and on Food Stamps than ever before, as I previously stated.

        Now, do you get in your little skull why people are trying to “block his policies”?!

  4. wow hahaa that BTF was hilarious

  5. I feel like a huge nerd, I already knew all seven of those “7 Superhero Facts You Probably Didn’t Know”
