  1. A Night in Miles Kelley

    This is everything: “A Night in Miles Kelley” is a terrible homemade comedy video

    I like awful homemade comedy/”random” videos even more than Plan 9 From Outer Space or The Room. Failed comedy can be as fascinating as failed horror or melodrama. And YouTube examples are more impressive than movies, where there’s at least some semblance of a budget and a plot, and where multiple people were willing to get involved.

    This NSFW video (another Cole Stryker discovery) is a filthy porn parody starring one chubby guy having sex with himself, plus a couple of friends as body doubles. It’s beautifully self-indulgent, inconsistent, and degrading. Miles at least deserves sincere praise for making a fool of himself and being the butt of his own joke.

    The camerawork, the editing, the choice of “lol insult” comedy, are all part of this young-male comedy-video flavor profile that I think should particularly appeal to comedians.

    The Guy Version of Engagement Excitement

    When a lady tells another lady she’s engaged, there’s that squeal. And then the questions: “Eeeee I’m so happy for you! How’d he do it? Where’d he do it? Tell me everything!” We know this trope. We know guys don’t do it. What do guys do, beyond something fake in three-camera sitcoms?

    If you want that squeal between dudes, tell your friend you just started watching some serial drama like Breaking Bad.

    “Whoa, awesome. When’d you start? How far along are you? Netflix or DVDs? That’s awesome. You’re going to love it. I’m just so happy for you.”

    Games too. “Just started Skyrim.” “AAAAH that’s so great! I’m so excited for you. How are you playing? Rogue? Brute? Aaaah the next few weeks are going to be great! Let me see your armor.”

    Journal of a Temporary Bachelor

    My wife drove back to Iowa with our dog for two weeks to see her family, leaving me to fend for myself. I kept an activity log of my time for posterity’s sake.

    DAY 1: Saw rest of party off to new adventure. Manning homestead solo now. Supplies are in good shape. Spirits high, if a little tired. Unsure where this clean serving dish goes. Made friends with 3 bugs, all of which are dead now. Haven’t worn pants since 11 am.

    DAY 3: Spilled beer on a pillowcase and tossed it in a corner for “later” (unsure what that even means anymore). Have taken up permanent residence on the couch, effectively shutting off the second floor altogether. Woke up in hot sweat, glued to leather couch. Thermostat has now learned its lesson. Spirits remain high.

    12 More Guys Chat With Marla the Psycho OkCupid Lady

    Thank you for the universal praise for “20 Guys Trying to Bang a Total Psycho on OkCupid“! We’re proud of every commenter ever for recognizing comedy, irony and hyperbole! Everyone saw clearly how the butt of the joke is Marla herself, because we explained it super-clearly because we’re very professional and perfect. As a reward, here are 12 more conversations with Marla, a crazy person made up for a fake OkCupid account.

    Because OkCupid decided this joke was too good to let slowly devolve into a tired gag, they’ve closed Marla’s account. This will be the last-ever collection of Marla’s OkCupid conversations until she makes another account.

    20 Guys Trying to Bang a Total Psycho on OkCupid

    The world is fucked. If you are single, you’re fucked. If you’re married, you’re probably going to get divorced, so you’re fucked too. Online dating is taking over, and it’s as bad as everyone says it is. The general population is morphing into lazy, fake, desperate, and creepy weirdoes on the internet, and I did a little experiment to prove it.

    I made a fake profile on OkCupid based on a character I created, named Marla. Here’s what Marla’s profile looked like. Please note that in my profile picture, you can’t see my face, boobs, butt, or anything that would indicate that I’m physically attractive whatsoever. Oh come on, that’s a hot shoulder. — Ed.

    The goal was to be as incredibly weird, rude, and unattractive as possible to see if guys would still talk to me. Seriously, who would waste more than 0.05 seconds on this white trash bitch? A LOT OF PEOPLE, APPARENTLY.

    See how 20 guys responded to my fake profile. »

    Man Candles: Chris Menning Has Opinions About Yankee Candle’s New Product Line

    Can I get weird and personal here and say that I helped bring Chris Menning and our publisher My Damn Channel together and I’m bragging because Chris, as it turns out, is amazing at making quick, engaging videos?

    What Men’s Interest Magazines Are Really About

    The following is from Modern Primate, Slacktory’s new brother blog for men who don’t read men’s blogs.

    There’s an entire industry that caters to men’s interests. Well, they try to cater to men’s interests. And in doing so, they tend to paint a picture of an ideal men that frankly many of us have never had any interest in becoming.

    The assumption that our appetites are so easily satiated by the one-size-fits-all menu of beer, ball, and boobs is insulting not only to women, but to men too. Women have made great strides in challenging the cookie-cutter mold of traditions shaped by crusty old white dudes. Now it’s time for us to give ourselves the same liberty.

    In that spirit, we offer you a look into the messages that traditional men’s publications have been giving us.

    2/10 Would Not Bang: 4chan’s Funniest New Meme

    There’s this running joke on the internet about an acne-scarred C.H.U.D. (or Butthurt Dweller) finding fault with any and all images of women in order to alleviate the self-hatred and loneliness that goes along with being a neckbearded netizen — “I can’t find a decent woman, not because I’m just awful in every way, but because all the women in my town have such big foreheads and stubby toes. Disgusting!”

    This mindset has borne a new meme, “2/10 Would Not Bang,” in which 4chan users post images of flawless women and compete against each other to find fault in increasingly creative ways, and then dismiss them with the Comic Book Guy-channeling verdict: 2/10, Would Not Bang.

    Dr. Pepper TEN: Women Can Suck It.

    In 1947, a young Fred Pepper graduated from medical school. His only desire was to use his medical knowledge to create a soft drink that tasted like gargoyle saliva with bubbles in it. Soon Dr. Pepper found the 23 perfect ingredients, and with a little carbonation his bubble soda pop concoction was complete.

    Skip ahead to present time and we find a struggling soda company desperate to attract more people to drink their beverage. Other companies had created knock-off drinks and did it without a medical degree. The good doctor knew two things. Woman aren’t stupid enough to drink bubbly gargoyle saliva, and men are trying to cut down on unnecessary calories so they can eat more meat without consequence.

    Dr. Pepper went back to his lab and created a low calorie, low sugar drink strong enough for a woman, but pH balanced for a man. He calls it Dr. Pepper TEN… and women aren’t allowed to drink it.
