… you’re going to have to go somewhere else.

This is why martial arts and vodka never mix.  Ever.

Weekend Recess: Jill Biden Kills the Crowd With Accidental Penis Joke

September 22, 2012 at 10:03 am (Big Stick, Elections 2012, Jill Biden, Jill Biden Joe Biden, Jill Biden Penis Joke, Joe Biden, Penis Joke, President Obama, Second Lady, Vice President Joe Biden, Video, Weekend Recess)

It was just a short while ago that vice-President Joe Biden was drawing laughter from a crowd for discussing the President’s “big stick“.

Now, clearly excited about the upcoming erec … er … election, Jill Biden is out on the campaign trail discussing her husband’s own ‘big stick‘, complete with visual aid.

Second Lady of the United States Jill Biden inadvertently made a penis joke during a campaign event in New Hampshire Friday.

“I’ve seen Joe up close,” Biden said while making a wide motion with her hands.

Biden giggled when the crowd reacted to her statement with laughs, cheers and cat calls.

“It’s in my remarks, really,” Biden said before continuing her speech.

It gets better.
She really emphasizes the phrase ‘big, strong heart’ while making the same wide-armed motion she made earlier, all through continued laughter.  
Then there’s the real money shot…
Biden stated, “I’ve heard the urgency in his voice when he comes … and talks about people he’s met.”  
Listen to the speech, she clearly pauses after the word ‘comes’, and good ol’ Joe starts laughing and shaking his head after that one.
Pretty funny stuff from Mrs. Biden.

Weekend Recess: Why Stage Diving During Slow Songs is Never a Good Idea

September 15, 2012 at 1:44 pm (Funny, Funny Video, Stage Diving, Viral Video, Weekend Recess)

Take away line:  “Was I supposed to catch him?”

From Coed Magazine:

Check out this kid as he sneaks backstage at an Aer concert then tries to go for a dive during one of the most mellow rap songs you’ve ever heard. He totally knocks it out of the park. And by “it out of the park” of course I mean “himself out cold.” Not only am I confused as to why he chose that particular moment to stage dive, I’m also wondering where the hell his shoes went. He definitely had them before he jumped.

Weekend Recess: Watch This Anchorman Ask the Meteorologist to ‘Canoodle’ With Him on Live Television

August 25, 2012 at 11:03 am (Anchorman, Andrew Johnson, Astrid Braunschmidt, Canada, Canoodle, Canoodling, Chat, CTV News, Funny Video, Meteorologist, Viral Video, Weekend Recess)

The urban dictionary defines canoodling as “to lay in bed and cuddle with a lover” or “to be touchy-feely”.

So why did an anchorman for CTV News in Canada ask the team’s meteorologist if she’d like to canoodle during a live news broadcast?  Watch for yourself…

Via KWGN-Colorado:

A Canadian news anchor might have been wise to pull out a pocket dictionary before telling a female meteorologist he wanted to canoodle — on-air.

Unfortunately for CTV News’ Andrew Johnson, that dictionary must not have been readily available, and so he crafted what he thought was a relevant, clean, fun transition from a story about canoodling on the banks of the Union Bay to meteorologist Astrid Braunschmidt’s forecast.

“It’s time now for a full look at your forecast with Astrid, and maybe we can canoodle before you get into it about umm…” Johnson said, perhaps stopping because he had a producer screaming in his earpiece.

Meteorologist Astrid Braunschmidt’s shocked response is what has most people in stitches over the blooper.

“We’re NOT going to be canoodling,” she said, using a cease-fire hand gesture. “What?!”

With a big smile, Johnson shrugged and said “I thought canoodle meant chat.” He then thanked his producer for not letting his ill-fated attempt at making what he thought was harmless chit chat develop any further.

“Take it away, and get me off camera,” Johnson said in good humor as his spot came to a close.

The bigger question here is, who exactly uses the phrase ‘canoodling’ in the first place?  🙂

Weekend Recess: NASA – They’re Sexy and They Know It

August 18, 2012 at 7:56 am (Bobak Ferdowsi, Cool, Curiosity, Funny Video, LMFAO, Mars, Mohawk, NASA, NASA and I Know It, President Obama, Rover, Sexy, Sexy and I Know It, Viral Video, Weekend Recess)

Who knew a Mars rover landing, a mohawk-sporting scientist, and a jar of peanuts could be so cool?

Well, the President did:

“It does sound like NASA has come a long way from the white shirt, black dark-rimmed glasses and the pocket protectors,” Obama said. “You guys are a little cooler than you used to be.”

And so apparently did a group called Satire, who capitalized on the success of NASA’s Curiosity rover mission to Mars to produce a parody of the hit song, “I’m Sexy and I Know It”.

The video for the song by LMFAO, “I’m Sexy and I Know It,” is either crude or crudely funny, depending on your tastes. But if your tastes runs toward the geeky, you’ll find this parody, “I’m NASA and I Know It” hilarious.

This video, from a group called Satire, pokes fun at the LMFAO song, as well as Bobak Ferdowsi, the mohawked NASA employee who was prominently displayed in NASA’s footage of the Mars Curiosity rover landing. With lyrics like, “When lookin’ for ice / gotta calibrate, gotta be precise,” plus actual footage of the landing, makes this song something we geeks can dance to.

Weekend Recess: Model Javelin Thrower Leryn Franco

July 28, 2012 at 8:19 am (2012 Olympics, Athlete, Javelin, Leryn Franco, Leryn Franco Hot, London Olympics, Model, Olympics, Sexy, Weekend Recess)

Our video last week of Michelle Jenneke’s racy warm up routine was such a hit, we’re going to throw another bone to our younger single male audience…

This week’s Weekend Recess is an Olympic edition.  She may have finished a distant 51st in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but Leryn Franco became an internet sensation, ranking only behind Michael Phelps among internet searches for Olympic athletes.  Why?

It’s clear that the 30-year-old from Paraguay is popular for more than just her javelin-throwing technique.

A model and beauty pageant contestant, Franco has participated in the Miss Bikini Universe pageant, released her own calendar, and was the runner-up to Miss Universo Paraguay in 2006. She has brought a bit of glam to her sport as well, posing in heels with her javelin for a photo shoot and wearing earrings with bling during competition. 

Franco has fared far better on the magazine and Internet hot lists than in international javelin competitions. She appeared in the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and was most recently ranked No. 64 on AskMen.com’s “Top 99 Women” of 2012. She also made Maxim’s “Sexiest Women of the Olympics” list and has an endorsement contract with Nike.  

Franco isn’t expected to compete for Olympic medals in 2012, though she has improved her personal numbers.  Her personal best is 57.77 meters, a far cry from other javelinists (is that a word?) who have record tosses of 71+ meters.

Long shot or not, Franco promises to make quite an impression in London.

Weekend Recess: Michelle Jenneke’s Sexy Pre-Race Routine Heats Up the Internet

July 21, 2012 at 12:54 pm (Athlete, Australia, Australian, Barcelona, Boys, Hurdler, Hurdles, Michelle Jenneke, Olympics, Sabrina, Sexy, Spain, Weekend Recess, World Junior Championships)

Usually our Weekend Recess clips are some sort of humorous video clip lighting up the internet that particular week.  This week, we’re throwing a bone to our biggest audience share – the 18-34 year old single male.

That said, this video isn’t without humor.  Whoever chose the cheesy background music to accompany the video has made the whole thing.  The music makes it laugh-worthy throughout.

Incidentally, our other biggest audience attribute?  According to Lijit.com, 43% of our readers make $100,000 in annual salary.  With that in mind, I’d like to direct your attention to the ‘DONATE’ button located on the right side of this page.  The shiny, candy-like button…

Without further ado, time to meet Michelle Jenneke, dancing internet sensation…

Via With Leather:

Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke won heat 2 of the Women’s 100 metres hurdles at the 14th IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona over the weekend, and if you watch the following video closely you’ll take away three major observations:

1. Michelle Jenneke is good at hurdles.

2. Michelle Jenneke is smoking hot.

3. Michelle Jenneke is the only thing your brain will let you think of when Michelle Jenneke is dancing.

While everyone else is stretching out and concentrating, Michelle starts go-go dancing. The announcers mention how she’s “certainly having fun”, and then she kills everybody at the hurdles. When she wins, she hugs everyone and waves at the crowd.

If you watch this clip and don’t love Michelle Jenneke, please consult your physician.

Yahoo! Sports added:

According to Bleacher Report, sports blog With Leather posted raw, live-stream footage of Jenneke’s prerace routine, then went back and edited it with an “overt celebration of Jenneke and her dancing and running presented in gratuitous slow motion, and with an awful song over it.”

Here ya go…

Weekend Recess: Video – Owner Turns Dead Cat Into a Helicopter

June 9, 2012 at 9:03 am (Bart Jansen, Cat Helicopter, Cat Turned Into Helicopter, Comedy, Dead Kitty Helicopter, Dutch Artist, Funny, Funny Video, Kitty Helicopter, Orville Wright, Taxidermist, Taxidermy, Weekend Recess)

Orville is a cat.  Orville was named after the aviation pioneer, Orville Wright.  Orville’s owner, clearly obsessed with aviation, decided that his dying cat’s last wish would be to fly.  Wish granted.

Orville the Cat, was turned into a helicopter.

From Sky News:

An artist has turned his cat into a flying helicopter after it was killed by a car.
Dutchman Bart Jansen stuffed Orville before teaming up with a radio control helicopter expert to attach propellers to each of its four paws.
The cat – named after pioneering aviator Orville Wright – is now a piece of artwork. The “Orvillecopter” is on show at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam.
Jansen said his creation is “half cat, half machine”, and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his pet.

And here’s the disturbing video…

Now Mr. Jansen, I’m quite sure your cat shared your love of aviation, because what cat doesn’t dream about flight, in between 23 hours of sleeping on the newspaper?

But I’m also fairly sure that upon his passing, his last request wasn’t to be transformed into Kitty Hawk Down.
