There is a specific YouTube video that never, ever, EVER fails to make me laugh so hard my sides hurt, and it is this:

Ohhhhhhh god. *wipes tears for the millionth time*

I won’t go so far as to say that’s the funniest thing on the entire Internet, but I’m convinced it’s in the top ten. But please, prove me wrong. What is the most hysterical thing — meme or video or comic or whatever — you’ve seen online? No particular reason, I just thought I’d get a kick out of seeing what you share.

    I just watched Movie 43 and laughed so hard my kids had to tell me to be quiet because I was keeping them awake. I was literally screaming into the pillow.

  2. Katharine on October 15th, 2013 12:32 pm

    This little guy. I never, ever, ever get tired of the faceplant. And the fact that they named their mini pig Hamlet. HAMLET! I love these people.

  3. Sara on October 15th, 2013 12:32 pm

    I am sure you saw the cat vomit one that was making the rounds last week? Too much.

  4. Brenda on October 15th, 2013 12:33 pm
  5. Katharine on October 15th, 2013 12:33 pm

    Oh, and there’s a video where Anderson Cooper breaks up over something, I don’t remember what, and he has the stupidest high-pitched giggle in the universe. The Silver Fox looking silly is pretty great.

  6. Katharine on October 15th, 2013 12:36 pm

    Brenda, that was awesome. In return, here ya go.

  7. Linda on October 15th, 2013 12:44 pm

    Okay that Sail video from Katherine just made me laugh so loudly I scared my own pea-brained cat.

  8. Corey on October 15th, 2013 12:48 pm

    Maru, tears every damn time. There a bunch of these videos and they never fail to get me.

  9. Brenda on October 15th, 2013 12:50 pm

    Katharine, cat fail videos amuse me more than anything else. I think it’s because they are such superior mofos that when they fuck up its doubly hilarious. But HAMLET for a mini-pig? That is gold.

  10. ja from amsterdam on October 15th, 2013 12:51 pm

    im in an iphone and cant see the video linda linked! help?

  11. Lynn on October 15th, 2013 12:51 pm

    Because it’s kittens riding a vacuum.

  12. Angela (@Aferg22) on October 15th, 2013 12:57 pm

    I don’t have the link (because I can’t access it at work) but just Google “goats screaming like humans” and proceed to laugh until you cry. Unless you are my husband, who just shakes his head at me.

    Screaming goats used in songs , Charlie biting, and Ricky Gervais on Sesame Street with Elmo (a clip of this has lived on my DVR for almost 3 years so that I can watch it in HD whenever I want). I’m also fond of goats passing out. Goats > cats.

    Favorite pick-me-up video is this one:

    And then there’s this cat on a Roomba:

  16. Laura on October 15th, 2013 1:27 pm


    I laughed until I cried.

    If we’re doing alltime favorites, I have to go with “things that hurt and shouldn’t be funny”: Grape Stomp and Backflip Nunchuck fail.

    Aaaaand: talking cat. Our pub quiz team name was Oh Don Piano for a long time.

  20. Brenda on October 15th, 2013 2:01 pm

    Oh, I forgot about this:
    Not so much a laugh until you cry but never, ever fails to make me smile. Love this kid so much.

  21. Linda on October 15th, 2013 2:02 pm

    Ahhh, End of the World! I love that so much and I haven’t watched it in forever! (Trivia: this video is why JB and I have always referred to each other as “mate.” WTF mate? Hokay!)

  22. Andrea on October 15th, 2013 2:05 pm

    This one is at the expense of others, and it’s kinda long, but it’s f’n hilarious and always makes me laugh:

  23. honeybecke on October 15th, 2013 2:22 pm

    This is gonna be a great comment thread. Can’t wait to have a good sit n watch. I know I have several funnies to offer but let’s start off with the freaky trololo guy.

  24. timberdawn on October 15th, 2013 2:27 pm

    If that doesn’t work, just type in “news reporter can’t read english”. I don’t think you have to be a farmer to enjoy this, as long as you know a little something about cattle breeds?

  25. Amber Scott on October 15th, 2013 2:31 pm

    Oh, gosh. This one:

    It has a slow build, but the payoff is so, so worth it!

    I don’t know if you’ve ever seen this, but this video makes me laugh-cry more than anything else on the internet:

  33. books on October 15th, 2013 3:12 pm

    Liz, I was coming over to post the grape stomp, too. I am a bad bad bad person. It’s the groaning that gets me every time. I’m also partial to floor buttering videos.

  34. Nicole on October 15th, 2013 3:17 pm

    Fun with Auto Correct – I can’t get to the end of this without tears of laughter blurring my vision:

    And this rant about Whole Foods is even better than the rap video:

    This. I tried reading it out loud to my husband after I read it the first time, and I couldn’t even do it – I was laughing so hard I was choking.

  43. deanna on October 15th, 2013 6:19 pm

    ooh i love this. everyone needs something to pick up their day with a laugh when theyre having a bad day. i have a few.


    [2] ill admit, i will sometimes search “people falling” and pick the best video. falling people is always funny.

    [3] if i have a few minutes, the old conan obrien skit where triumph the insult comic dog visits people in line for the star wars premiere gets. me. every. time.

    [4] and here’s the link for the aforementioned gggling anderson cooper moment. (as a girl from buffalo who knows all about dyngus day, i especially think this is hysterical. it is so dumb….yet so awesome.)

  44. Kate on October 15th, 2013 6:36 pm

    Does it have to be an animal video? My favorite video is the Dutch guys having labor contractions.

  45. Brenda on October 15th, 2013 6:52 pm

    Omg Kate, that’s my new favourite!

  46. michelle on October 15th, 2013 6:54 pm

    This one went around last week and it brought tears of laughter early in the A.M. at this house. There is just something funny about people freaking out! …

    You may have already seen it, but this product review on Amazon of the Diva Cup never fails to leave me in tears:

    I wish I knew who wrote it. I want that person to have a book deal.

  49. Mon on October 15th, 2013 7:15 pm

    Years later, this STILL cracks me up.

    While I don’t find it quite as hilarious, my husband can’t get enough of Bat Dad right now. (I more love how his wife is annoyed by him most of the time.) But kind of fun memories for his kids. :)

    Didn’t read all the comments, so this may be a repeat, but the ultimate dog tease. I didn’t really think it was so funny the first time, but then I couldn’t get it out of my head and had to watch it 344444 times and it just gets better and better.

  • Stuff I Like:

      space Scowler Scowler, by Daniel Kraus If you like horror books, definitely check this out. Scowler is ostensibly YA, but I can't even imagine Stephen-King-loving preteen me reading it -- it's scary, bleak, and grueling as hell. But also wonderfully written and completely unique. space rosieproject The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion Funny and quirky and endearing and best of all, it's the sort of book you just can't put down. space marylou Mary-lou Manizer Highlight/Shimmer Powder This is basically a shimmery (not glittery!) powder that adds a really nice luminescent highlighting glow. I sweep it on the top of my cheekbones, on top of blush, and blend. space cosmeticsbox Wood Cosmetic Box by Lori Greiner I just got this makeup container and it's pretty fabulous. (Thanks, Shark Tank Lori!) It closes up into a nice attractive box, and opens with all sorts of clever drawers. Note that 1) it's TALL, so check measurements, and 2) you'll probably still need one separate thing to hold tall brushes. space goldfinch The Goldfinch Everyone seems to be talking about this book lately, and with good reason. I read it for what felt like weeks on end (it's LONG) and every night I had weird half-dreams about the stories that had unfolded. It's emotionally exhausting, but so beautifully written. space egyptian Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream This is a heavy-duty moisturizer made of olive oil and bee goo and it's perfect for icky winter dry skin. space pb2 PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter MIRACLE FOOD. It's powdered peanut butter you mix with water (or add to a smoothie, or...) and it has a fraction of the fat and calories of regular peanut butter. Plus: delicious. space timebalm The Balm Timebalm Anti-Wrinkle Concealer I'm always on the lookout for awesome concealers (my eye circles, let me terrify you with them), and this one is my current favorite. space brushes Real Techniques Starter Set I wouldn't have thought a different brush could make any sort of noticeable improvement in my makeup technique. I was so, so, SO wrong. If you like makeup, you need these brushes immediately. space Stainiac Stainiac Lip Stain Great lip stain that gives a natural rosy flush and lasts a really long time. space [More things I like...]
