The Most Realistic, Expensive Way to Play Pokémon Go

If there’s one thing Pokémon Go is missing (besides functioning servers, trading, battling, a tutorial, serious nerfs to Vaporeon’s stats, a clear indication of the rules surrounding gym battles, and easier ways to acquire Stardust) it’s a bespoke Pokéball-throwing experience that’s indistinguishable from hate-lobbing…

Artist Draws Eminem Out of Spaghetti, Because Memes Never Die

Despite critical and commercial success and a storied career, the two words that have followed Eminem the longest are “mom’s spaghetti,” from his Academy Award-winning song “Lose Yourself.” Bait-and-switch text memes were built around it. A re-edit of the song replaced just about every noun in “Lose Yourself” with…

So Here's Trump as a Giant Robot Blowing Up the Entire Goddamn Earth

“What would a Trump presidency look like?” many of us have been wondering, in decreasingly hypothetical terms. Now, in all its bubblegum-tinted glory, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if elected, Donald J. Trump will pilot an enormous mecha in his likeness, use it to construct his long-threatened wall, and then…

Hilarious Short Animation Shows the Random Ways You Can Die in Space

This short animation Death in Space by Thomas Lucas is a collection of two-second scenes that show people dying in space in the most random ways. It’s totally silly, but it’s funny because it pokes fun of the careless curiosity of human nature. Yes, we’re going to jab that creature that might swallow us alive. Sure,…

Marvel’s Civil War arc is both legendary and insanely convoluted, involving just about every hero you’ve ever heard of (and a ton you haven’t) over 50 issues published across over a dozen titles. Even though there’s a collected edition now, nothing beats the brevity of a four minute animated explainer to catch you up…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Hilariously Summarized and Made Fun of in 90 seconds

Crude summaries of Star Wars are always great but here’s an especially silly one from Movie Blast. Instead of just simplifying the story (which it does), it also pokes fun of the movie and in turn, skewers all of us at the same time. Rey becomes Ray Romano, JJ Abrams is Jar Jar Abrams, Uber is mentioned, and so is…

If Movies Ended When a Character Says the Movie Title They'd Be Hilariously Short

Chris Huebs came up with the brilliant idea to re-edit popular movies to end right after a character says the title of the movie. So when the audience is welcomed to Jurassic Park, boom the credits roll. When you meet the fellowship of the ring, bam it ends. It’s a hilarious gag because the title dropping in the…

Video: The History of Japan Explained in the Most Fun Way Possible

If we canceled history classes in high schools across the world and replaced them with YouTube videos about history, kids would learn so much more. I just sat through this wonderful 10-minute video on the history of Japan by Bill Wurtz without even skipping ahead because it was so riveting and funny and fast paced. In…

Hilarious Animation Imagines Old Star Wars Characters Meeting New Star Wars Characters

Did you see the new Star Wars yet? Of course you did. You probably watched it twice (and if you didn’t watch it yet, stop reading). It was great, right? Such a fun time. Did the franchise good. A heck of a show. Until you realize (stop reading now if you still haven’t seen) that the characters and the storyline are…
