There are so many ways to make your day to day existence better, and we could all use a little lifehack now and again. But that doesn't mean all those instructional videos couldn't use a little skewering. Especially when it comes from The Onion. So come on folks, let's crack this whole "words" thing once and for all.

The rest of this week's top comedy videos, including a bar for sidekicks, the woman for Romney, and bad lip reading for the presidential debate can be found over at Splitsider.
