Booda Ode



This is a Nigerian movie in four parts on YouTube. The description reads:

"Boda Ode (Stupid Brother) is a very funny Yoruba-Dance Nigerian comedy... (English Subtitles). The guy is trying to get a girl, but has no luck. He then goes to the juju priest to try and charm the girl to love him lol. Very funny movie!!"

After watching the first part here, you might agree with my opinion: the Farrelly Brothers have nothing to fear!

Happy Harry

I recently found out about an animator named Harry Partridge who does bizarre shorts that are perfect Weird Universe material. These two are my favorites, but be sure to go to the Happy Harry Toons YouTube page for more absurdity.

Shoplifting 101 - When NOT To Shoplift

In a move that would have fit right into the movie Dumb and Dumber, two young men were caught shoplifting... from a store full of more than sixty uniformed police officers. The annual 'Shop With A Cop' event in Portland marks the beginning of the school year as the officers take dozens of needy children to a local store to purchase school supplies. Store security notified the police that the two men were stuffing their backpacks with items. The men stated "we thought the police would be distracted." You can read more about it here.

What Tree Did You Fall From?

I'm sure you've heard the saying "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree", which has something to do with how kids aren't so different from their parents. But does it matter what kind of tree you fall from? According to this chart that I found here, it does! This is a unique take on the usual "what's your sign?" perspective most people use to get to know others. So, what's your tree?

More Than You Ever Wanted To Know…

About disposable razors. Way back in the day, a razor was a single blade with a wooden handle. And it worked. But that wasn't good enough. Makers of disposable razors have been adding blades since the 1970s, until today, when ShaveMate introduced a razor with six (yes, six) blades. And not just more blades, but their Titan 6 has shaving cream in the handle and a moisture strip. This is great news for the man that wants to remove several layers of skin from his face without that terrible razor burn effect. Read the amusing article for more.

You Say Tomayto, I Say Tomahto

While this happened years ago, I wanted to share it with those of you who need a good laugh today. Jodee Berry, then aged 26 of Panama City, Florida, sued the Hooter's restaurant where she used to work because she was misled over a prize in a beer selling contest.
