Things Could Be Worse? Health Care’s Big Lies in Three Morbidly Nasty Minutes!

Things Could Be Worse? Health Care’s Big Lies in Three Morbidly Nasty Minutes!

Can you imagine what if you get sick nowadays, how things could be any worse? No health insurance? “Sorry Bozo,” sneers the clerk at the Emergency Room desk. “Take a Number.” Oh crap, I gots like number 7,426. Oh no, I’m a bloody, bloody mess….and I gots number 7,426. What number are they calling now? Number Three. But even worser things, OMFG unthinkable horrors can happen when you can’t afford Health Insurance. Arms fall off. And ever worser things wither away and drop off a body’s body. It’s just horrible. Yep.

Photo of the Day: The Luscious Miss Plucky

Photo of the Day: The Luscious Miss Plucky

Photography by: Joseph O. Holmes, NYC

Miss Plucky really is a very, very big chicken, and she brings to mind Charlie Chaplin’s 1925 silent film, The Gold Rush. The Gold Rush abounds with now-classic comedy scenes. At one point in the film, during a winter blizzard Chaplin is stuck in a remote, ramshackle cabin with Big Jim McKay. There is absolutely no food left in the cabin, and they are both so famished that the little man suggests making a meal out of one of his shoes. It may sound utterly absurd, but Chaplin extracts unexpected comedy out of this idea. He boils the shoe, and serves it as carefully as if it were a wonderful holiday chicken. He puts the shoe on a plate and gives Big Jim the sole with the protruding nails, taking the upper part of the shoe for himself. Big Jim gazes upon the portion put before him and decides that he would sooner have the upper. Thereupon Charlie treats the laces as if they were delicious spaghetti, and when he comes to eating the sole, he goes about it as if the dish were a duck or a chicken. He eats the “meat” from the nails, and when Chaplin finds a bent nail he offers it as a wishbone to Big Jim.

At one point, Big Jim becomes half-mad with hunger, and in his delirious moments his little companion fades out into a giant chicken. Staring with goggle-eyed amazement at the sight of Big Chicken Charlie, Big Jim is just about to slay what he takes to be a tempting bird, when the image fades back into Charlie. It happens again, and the supposed Big Chicken flees from the cabin out into the snow, and just as the big man is about to shoot, Big Chicken once again dissolves into his little friend. This classic scene of The Big Chicken is presented for you in the video below.

It’s the Good Humor Guy Here, Bringing You Some Fun Times!!

It’s the Good Humor Guy!!

Type “college prank” into YouTube and you’ll be greeted with hundreds of videos. Most will be really, really dumb. Many won’t even be pranks at all. Some of them will make you furrow your brow, shake your head, and fear for the future of our country. But a few of them push the art of the prank to new heights. Being able to share videos online has encouraged the best college pranksters to make their stunts more elaborate. It also allows us to share in their glorious humorous insanity.

The Village People’s Amazingly Awful “Can’t Stop the Music”

The Village People: Can’t Stop the Music

The Village People: Can’t Stop the Music

In 1980, The Village People starred in the motion picture musical Can’t Stop the Music. One reviewer of the film wrote: “This movie is amazing. Rarely in the history of mankind have we seen a movie so incredibly awful that it becomes a must-see film.” The movie won Razzie Awards for Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay in 1981. It also was nominated for five other Razzie Awards, including ones for Worst Actor (Bruce Jenner), Worst Actress (Valerie Perrine) and Worst Original Song (Can’t Stop the Music).

Described elsewhere as “a train wreck” of a movie, it is mind-boggling to think of this vehicle for The Village People, which also starred Steve Guttenberg and the athlete Bruce Jenner, as a serious, big-budget Hollywood motion picture. But it was, and everything about the movie seemed to be in massive denial about who the Village People really were.

It was extremely difficult choosing the movie’s “Best-Worst Scene” to present here, so here are three musical scenes for your enjoyment: Milkshake, YMCA and Can’t Stop The Music.
