Curse of the Dancing Mummy



Have you seen the dancing mummy on your local weather report? He's a CGI mummy doing the twist, and he's the star of a very popular Halloween graphic that appears to be used at least once a year in every television market. What wasn't included in the graphics package was a warning that this mummy has a supernatural power. He makes every meteorologist who looks at him start dancing. Badly. News Be Funny  made a compilation of clips using this same graphic at dozens of TV stations. Maybe your local weather forecaster is in there! (via Tastefully Offensive)

How Do You Use A Jar of Peanut Butter?


BesidesPDX posted this picture of a peanut butter jar at reddit and said, "I know I'm not the only one." I must have missed that Calvin and Hobbes strip, although I read it most days. And I have never heard of anyone using peanut butter like this. While most commenters also had never heard of such a thing, a few said they always tried to eat as much peanut butter as possible without disturbing the smooth surface on top. Megamanfre does the same thing a slightly different way. He's not the only one.


Have you ever done this? Have you even heard of it? Will you start doing it now because of this post?

Truck vs. Bridge



The infamous site 11foot8 monitors the underpass on Gregson Street in Durham, North Carolina. Last weekend, another truck driver did not heed the sign warning of the 11 foot eight inch clearance, nor the flashing lights. They ran the red light, too, so the driver may just be blind, or at least oblivious. You get to see the carnage from two angles, plus slow-motion. And it's a rental truck, so the driver will have some 'splainin' to do. (via Boing Boing)

Laughing at His Misery

Have you ever done something so stupid that you didn't want anyone to know, but you had to ask for help anyway? This guy has to out up with laughter and humiliation to get his problem solved. The real punch line is that this comic was inspired by a real life story. But instead of one trusted geek, he was the target of hundreds of laughing geeks. At least he used a throwaway account for this one post. Maybe he imagined that those who laughed the hardest would one day face their own kind of embarrassing mistake. This is the latest comic from CommitStrip.  


The Walking Gingerbread



Sesame Street brings us another parody, this time putting the Muppets into a scenario that will remind you of The Walking Dead. The style is there, but the zombies are bad cookies called crumbies, their prey is the good cookies (which is redundant), and the sheriff is Cookie Monster. That leads to some issues, as you might guess. The YouTube release of this video is well-timed, because the season of gingerbread temptation is coming up soon. Oh yeah, and The Walking Dead season eight begins tonight. (via Uproxx)

Become a Better Golfer

The Return of Dracula



This film from 1958 stars Francis Lederer as Dracula. From Wikipedia:
It is set in a small town in California in the 1950s, where Count Dracula arrives in the form of an artist named Belak Gordal (Lederer) who has traveled from Europe to visit his cousin, Cora Mayberry (Greta Granstedt). The story revolves around his interaction with Cora's daughter, Rachel (Eberhardt).[2]

When shown on television, it was sometimes titled Curse of Dracula.[2] In the U.K it was released theatrically as The Fantastic Disappearing Man.[3] Later in 1958, the film Horror of Dracula appeared in theaters in both the UK and the U.S., and The Return of Dracula would have a lack of attention due to Christopher Lee's new stardom as the Count.

Master Tambourine Skills



Japanese TV is a treasure. In this performance, tambourine master Gonzo shows off his stuff on the variety show Gaki No Tsukai. This is actually the portion of the show in which the celebrity panel in the audience is charged with keeping a straight face. The punishment came because they couldn't help but laugh. Gonzo's partner in the act is one of the show's producers. Gonzo went on to perform on the show Asia's Got Talent, where he got a standing ovation. (via reddit)
