The Horror of the 2Girls1Cup Meme

I’ve been surprised by some of the videos that have gone viral but the 2Girls1Cup video going around may actually be proof that the Apocalypse is near.

YouTube currently has over 3,000 videos of people’s reactions as they watch 2Girls1Cup which might be vile enough to make Goatse and Tubgirl seem like things you’d find on Cute Overload. I haven’t watched the video (I saw the reactions and read enough descriptions to find out that it is basically scat and vomit porn involving a cup…… Yeah, I think I’ll pass on the digital ipecac) but some of the reactions are priceless.

Here’s Joe Rogan, the host of FEAR FACTOR nonetheless, almost vomiting while watching it (and then talking about the BME Olympics which I think I’ll pass on also.)

The other 3,000+ reaction videos on YouTube are pretty much the same with an innocent victim sitting down, relaxing, then almost vomiting at the same cues:

One person even showed it to his grandmother which may or may not be a capital offense in some states.

The 2Girls1Cup video has become popular enough that John Mayer made a parody of it on the website Funny or Die and even Republican hopeful Mike Huckabee got in on this internet meme.

You’ve been warned! This has been a Cynical-C Public Service Announcement.

Colt 45 Commericial with Redd Foxx (1975)

I can’t come up with a better comment than the YouTube submitter:

I’m just wondering why Redd is driving at such a high rate of speed, in the snow with a six-pack of malt liquor to deliver to a guy sitting in a chair?!? But then, maybe I’m putting way to much thought into this scenario??!!

Futurama is Back

This is terrific news…. Unless you’re Kellie.

Set in the year 3000, Futurama’s interstellar sci-fi future isn’t a shiny utopia like The Jetsons or a dark dystopia like Blade Runner. It’s a time that seems wonderful or awful depending on how you look at it — just like the present. “On The Jetsons, there’s a machine that ties your tie for you,” Cohen says. “On Futurama, there’d be a machine that tied your tie, but it would malfunction and start strangling you.”

Those kinds of macabre twists would be Futurama’s undoing. Fox was expecting something familiar, The Simpsons in space. Executives certainly were not prepared for the bizarre contours of Groening and Cohen’s brave new world. “The network’s attitude quickly went from tremendous excitement to great fear,” Groening says. “They were very troubled by the suicide booth. They didn’t like the ‘All-Tentacle Massage’ parlor.”

Futurama premiered to strong ratings, but as the show was shuffled around the schedule, viewership slipped. Every season, the renewal notice came late — so late that there wasn’t always time to deliver a full slate of episodes. After the fourth season, the people working on the show waited and waited for a renewal notice until they eventually assumed — correctly — that it wasn’t going to come. “We didn’t get to finish the way we would’ve liked,” Cohen says.

How To Fold a Towel Elephant

From WikiHow:

A towel elephant is a cute addition to your bathroom and an incredible way to impress your guests! Cruise lines and “bed and breakfast” motels use these quite often. If you want to give your bathroom an original touch, have “Eddie the Towel Elephant” greet your unsuspecting guests and tickle their sense of humor.

Halo 3: Homophobia Evolved (NSFW)

I am shocked, shocked to find gambling here.

This is what happens when gay Masterchiefs don’t abide by “Don’t ask Don’t tell”.

Watch what ensues when I use a gamertag that’s proud and unambiguous, xxxGayBoyxxx.

Other than maybe a quick “hello” to the chat room or a request to “veto”, I didn’t say anything first or taunt anyone. What was said by these players was done with no provocation on my part. The vast majority of the times I wouldn’t even respond back so the audio would be clear.

Things I didn’t include in this video are the betrayals (people on my team killing me), players asking me NOT to party up, or all leaving mid-game so that I’m all alone.

Death of Robot John

Soviet cosmonauts on Venus are saved from lava by Robot John in scene from Planeta Bur (Planet of Storms), Soviet science fiction film in 1961 around time of Gagarin’s first flight into space. As the robot dies, two lost teams of cosmonauts also are reunited.

The Ron Paul Blimp

It runs on gold dust and is inflated with Liberty.

Imagine.. the mainstream media is mesmerized as the image of the Ron Paul blimp is shown to tens of millions of Americans throughout the day (and throughout the month). Wolf Blizter, stunned and as if in a trance, repeats the words “Amazing, Amazing”.

As GPS co-ordinates stream to the website a map shows the Ron Paul blimp’s location in real time. The local television stations broadcast its every move. The curious flock together and make a trip to see history in the making. Emails with pictures are sent, then forwarded, then forwarded again. Youtube videos go viral and reach tens of millions of views. Ron Paul becomes the first presidential candidate in history to have his very own blimp. The PR stunt generates millions upon millions of dollars worth in free publicity, and captures the imagination of America.

Please join us in our goal to raise $350,000 to make and fly the first ever Presidential Blimp in history. Choose a pledge amount below and enter your email address to confirm the pledge. When we reach our goal in pledges you’ll receive an email letting you know it’s time to fulfill the pledge.

They say they’ve received over $385,000 in pledges! (Although my guess is that will come down a dollar or two when it’s time to collect those pledges.)

The 9 Most Badass Bible Verses

Yes, yes, I know. Another list.

If the Bible had been written by King Leonidas and the rest of the Spartans from 300, it would probably read pretty much the same as it does now.

It turns out, the Bible is already chock full of ass kicking. Here are the verses that make us want to take to the streets and put some unbelievers to the sword.
