  1. That was the best Harlem Shake video ever.

  2. There’s a serious error with the oscar fact sheet. Alfred Hitchcock never won an academy award and it was Joe Pesci that was the second person to simply say “Thank you” as an acceptance speech for his best supporting actor win for “Goodfellas”it should be removed for inaccuracy

  3. The funniest news interviews video is clearly filled with people who should be prevented from procreating ever again.

    • That was just an asinine thing to say.

    • @Gary

      I removed the last part of your comment. Cool it with the attacks on people or you’ll be banned.


      • Kofi…

        If you could delete my above post too, I would appreciate it. Since the attack has been deleted my calling out of it is pointless ( and, of course, looks weird by itself).

        Thank you. :)

  4. Whoa! didn’t mean to ruffle any feathers!
    Maybe not as humorous as I thought.
    I’ll stay away from those sort of posts in the future.

    I didn’t realize people were so touchy about Michael Bay ;-)

  5. That first person Mario endgame was beautiful.

  6. I can’t believe those are all tv shows either, what the hell? People really watch all those? No wonder we can’t get good shows on tv that won’t be canceled anymore. People ignore good tv like Southland and instead watch Hillbilly Swamp Dancing with Skeeter and Cousin Jethro. lol I made that one up, but it’ll probably be on tv soon enough.
