TDS, TCR writers hold mock debate during writers’ strike

Ok, granted, this is a little bit outdated. The Writers’ Strike is over, and everyone’s happy now that “So You Think You Can Dance” is on. However, there is some gold in this mock-debate-style panel discussion in Congress (at which actual congress-persons were present). “Representing” the WGA, we have writers from The Daily Show, and on the side of the AMPTP we have writers from The Colbert Report. In addition to a smug philosophy-major-turned-writer and a parody of Code Pink protesters, there is some interesting commentary on the internet, a charge that the writers “think they’re better than Jesus,” and a discussion of “nothing-adjacence.” Enjoy:

Get Pubic Lice in the Mail Not Just From Dirty Girls

Mailorder Pubic Lice

There is a website called LoveBugz.net that apparently sends pubic lice to you via mail if you send them your address and a dollar. “Bug Girl” called the dude’s bluff and “Bugger” responded by sending her a package (by way of a reporter). The photos she took are pretty funny since you can see the hair off the dude’s ball bag and the jank instructions (highlighted above).

It is relieving to know that you can lice the same way you can get dog poop – sent right to your home. Before you needed to brush up with one of Rob & Big‘s Dirty Girls to get crabs and STD’s.

From the FAQ:

If you’re a pretty girly in the metro area and you wanna get polinated, then email me and maybe we can get together.

They gotta have someplace to live. Birds gotta fly, fish gotta swim, lice gotta orbit uranus. Like the saying goes, one in the bush is better than none in the hand.

Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job: I Sit Down When I Pee

Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job is probably the strangest show on American television. It is on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim and cracks me up to the point where I had to go get the Tim and Eric DVD when it came out Tuesday.

One of their bits on the show is a “Channel 5 Kids Break” that features a song called “I sit down when I pee”. This video is not only funny but is apparently the exact opposite of how Bro Taguchi goes potty at work. The cash line is “are you making iced tea?”.

If you have not seen the show, then you probably are missing Dewey Cox’s John C. Reilly do his character of Dr. Steve Brule and you need to get on that!.

Viral Video: Drunk History Vol. 1 – Featuring Michael Cera – Funny Or Die

I just got finished watching the entire HBO John Adams series over the weekend so you could say I am on an American history kick.  I found a hilarious video called “Drunk History Vol. 1 – Featuring Michael Cera” over at funnyordie.com and had to share it.

The idea is that Mark Gagliardi got drunk and discussed the events surrounding the famous duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.  The babble that he spewed was reenacted by Superbad’s Michael Cera and Jake Johnson.  It is pretty ridiculous.

The Rockets on Dikembe

This speaks for itself. The Rockets have won 22 straight games…second-longest win streak in NBA history. They’ve done it in spite of the fact that they lost their all-star center Yao Ming aka “Ki-wi-check” for the season a couple weeks ago. At the time, the injury appeared devastating. Since that date, the Rockets have 11 in a row. Like it or not, they are a contender and they appear to be having fun.

I’ll reiterate…WATCH THE NBA PLAYOFFS THIS YEAR! It will be the best 2.5 months of hoops you’ve seen in years.

Soupy Trumpet Blasts from the Web 3-14-08

Here’s another Soupy Trumpet daily-dose of internet finds to enjoy:

Oh, I figured she was a redhead…

Yesterday I commented on how the media is taking the opportunity to use the Eliot Spitzer scandal to plaster the airwaves with “news” about prostitution…because it sells. Today they took it to a whole new level.

CNN.com has placed a photo of Ashley Alexandra Dupre aka “Kristen,” Spitzer’s mistress, on the front page. MSN.com has also run the story ID-ing the call girl. Other responsible news sources have fallen in line: FOXNEWS.com (front page photo), MSNBC.com and all the rest, basically. Bravo, you’ve proven that you’re all much bigger whores than Kristen…or perhaps we the public are the whores…or better yet, maybe this whole thing is a giant whore-gy.

One day they’ve got a photo of his crestfallen wife at the presser, and the next day they’ve run with the photo of this sexy vixen. “Oh, his poor family…somebody write a story on that angle. GET ME A PIC OF THE HOOKER, NOW!” Apparently, Kristen is now the story.

Again, I defer to the legendary Bill Hicks:

I’m tired of this back-slapping ‘Isn’t humanity neat?’ bullshit. We’re a virus with shoes, okay? That’s all we are.

The media outlets have plenty of time to detail Kristen + Eliot sitting in a tree, and I’ve got volumes of Bill Hicks quotes. Watch the virus grow…this should be fun.

Don’t Do Work in Your Pants Son, Try Big Black’s Manpons

Christopher “Big Black” Boykin and his buddy Rob Dyrdek aka Rob & Big are definitive hall of famers at Soupy Trumpet, just about everything they do is funny to us. Now we want to share with you the commercial for Big Black’s Manpons. This commercial is hilarious and even has a nice little jingle (probably another “Drama Beat” like Dirty Girl by Bobby Light). You can watch the full Big Black Manpon episode at MTV.com for free and see why this product MUST hit the market.

Transcript: (pretty funny to read too)

Announcer: The following program is brought to you by Manpon. Manpon – It keeps the mud out.

Big Black: Hi. I’m Big Black from MTV’s Rob & Big and I am here to talk about a growing problem that doesn’t get enough attention – doodoo comin’ out of your butt when you don’t want it to. Well that’s all behind us. Thanks to my new Big Black Manpon. It’s pretty much just a wad of toilet paper you shove in your butt to keep the mud from coming out. But unlike regular toilet paper, it comes with my personal guarantee stamped right on the box. Don’t do work in your pants son! Try Big Black Manpons.

Jingle: If you’re walkin’ around with mudbutt, use Big Black Manpons, it’ll clean it up.

Announcer: For your protection.
