Stuff I Found Funny A Week Ago (8)
I know your New Year’s resolution was probably to visit my blog more, so I’m bringing back “Stuff I Found Funny A Week Ago.” Well, it’s more like “Stuff I Found Funny Last Year” if you want to get technical about it.

- You should make a tradition of watching the Christmas tradition of Jay Thomas and David Letterman throwing footballs at a meatball tree (here), and Thomas telling Letterman his Lone Ranger story (here). Then check out Letterman testing out Holiday toys (here).

- This website has a list of every fake movie and TV show from 30 Rock. (here)

Stuff I Found Funny a Week Ago (2)
Maybe I’ll make this a weekly “feature” on this “blog”, or maybe not. Anyway, here’s stuff I found funny last week and other stuff not necessarily from last week.
Michael Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh eat snacks on their new podcast “Mike and Tom Eat Snacks” (here)
A coupon website actually exists that is called Jewpon (here)
Michael Showalter does a statistical analysis of nerds from 1984 on Late Night (here)
Just in case you had any doubt that Mike Tyson was insane, he now has a TV show about pigeons. “The first thing I ever loved in my life—the pigeon, they’re so much like people.” (here)

George Washington was black. (here)
Whoever changed PetsMart to PetSmart must think they’re really clever.**
It surprises me that people are just now realizing that The Office is no longer based in realism. Even though that bothers me I still thought Threat Level Midnight was pretty good. Check out this article (here) where the writer says that Roy’s name is Ray and says she didn’t know that Michael Scott had a screenplay yet claims to be capable of reviewing the show.
Andy Richter shoots Watson the supercomputer with a shotgun (here)
Either the worst or the best scene in the history of film: Troll 2 (here)
