Sunday Funnies

This week, Internet people have been making me laugh. I must share the bounty!

Go Fug Yourself: a mock trial in which you, the jury, must decide whether Carrie Underwood committed fashion fug in the first degree at the CMA Awards. From Exhibit A: "The prosecution frowns that this mirrored dress mostly eliminates her waist, and reflects the red carpet in such a way that it becomes an artistic interpretation of internal bleeding." Go! Vote! Carrie's fate is in your hands!

Prefer your scathing wit in a literary setting? Here, then, are the winners of
The Rejectionist's challenge to write the "THE MOST AMAZING Form Rejection in the History of the Universe." That's right, people--the universe. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? Ha! Apparently Hell hath never seen rejected writers unleashed...on themselves.

What's that? You're too lazy to read or vote, you want to loll on the couch and let the funny pour into your eyes? Behold, just for you: Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart" music video...
the literal version.*

Which brings us, as always, to the eternal, unanswerable question...who are these people, and where do they find the time to do this kind of stuff?

*Discovered via my friend Jenny's blog...thanks for the mirth, Jenny!

Hahahaha! That video was hilarious! And I can't figure out what the "real" video was supposed to represent, either. WEIRD.

Thanks, Miss Attitude! I was thrilled that Ten Cents got named to the 10 Best--especially since it was teens whose opinions help shape the list!

Walter, "lol on the couch"'re right, I did miss that one. How could I? (slaps forehead)

Thanks for stopping by, Anon! :)

Melissa, that's what I thought, too. I even remember most of the real words to the song, and I still can't figure it out. But talk about ripe for satire! I wonder what Bonnie Tyler thinks of it now?

Hi, Jenny! *blows kiss and waves*

Finally got to a computer with sound...
"It started out as Hogwarts, now it's "Lord of the Flies"
What a hoot!
