Gary The Singing Construction Worker Is Really Great

Hey, Gary, the foreman says that if you got time to lean you got time to sing beautifully. And the sign in the breakroom reads: "Your mother doesn't work here, so clean up after Gary. He's busy singing like an angel!" One last joke: This site has worked 0 days without Gary being the best. More »

Congratulations, As Always, To Joey Chestnut And Everyone

Did you eat hot dogs yesterday? Well, you did not eat enough hot dogs. You might as well have not eaten any at all if you're not going to really TRY. Joey Chestnut tried. Joey Chestnut tried and succeeded. From the New York Daily News: Chestnut, the certified champ, choked down 62 dogs and… More »

Happy 5th Of July!

You could describe this video two ways, either "the New York Police Department blows up 5,000 pounds of illegal fireworks," OR "great video." Every day is Independence Day, am I right, ladies? Ladies? (Via NYT.)… More »

Man Licking Shoes On New York Subway, Obviously

It turns out that guy who tried to get a good old patriotic "USA!" chant going a couple weeks ago with ZERO help from the tree-hugging homosexuals of Jew York City (it's not offensive if it's TRUE) was just on the wrong train. If he had been on this guy's train, everyone would have… More »

USA #1!

As many performers will tell you, doing crowd work can be very difficult. Even a simple call-and-response question to an audience like, "How are you doing tonight, ladies and germs?," can be met with the kind of stony, cricket silence that immediately drains your performance of all its energy and enthusiasm. The problem, of course,… More »

New York, I Love You, But You’re Grossing Me Out

After the jump, I have posted a video of a man traveling on a New York subway with a pet rat on his shoulder who abruptly places the rat's head in his mouth, shakes the rat all around, and then removes the rat and puts it back on his shoulder. The video is appropriately titled,… More »

This Is Just A Very Good Speech About Abortion Funding

After the jump, I have posted a speech from New York's 9th District Representative, Anthony Weiner, a democrat, expounding upon a Republican-sponsored bill that would redefine the definition of rape in order to curtail government funding of abortion, and I'm not really sure how to describe the speech other than "very good," which admittedly sound… More »

Operation Watch This: Found Photos Video

Some dude found an undeveloped roll of film in Prospect Park and made a charming video in an attempt to track down the original photographer(s). The whole thing seems a little fake (oh Internet, you should be called Skepticalofeverythingnownet) but fake can still be DELIGHTFUL. More »

A Brief Note On The Subway Rat Video

You've probably already seen today's HOT BUZZ, which is a cameraphone video of a rat running wild on a New York subway train, and eventually waking up a homeless man by JUMPING ONTO HIS SLEEPING FACE.

That’s Your Boyfriend: Carl Paladino

Carl Paladino, the Republican for governor of New York, made a speech to a group of orthodox Jews yesterday in which he said the following: I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed… More »

These Guys Are VERY Excited About The Brooklyn Tornado

For a brief moment yesterday afternoon, the skies over Brooklyn opened up and let Brooklyn have it. There was supposedly a tornado, or something. I don't know about all that, because I didn't actually see a tornado, and I'm of the philosophy that if you do not see something with your own eyes through the… More »

Description: In political speech concerning federal funding for public education programs, legally blind punchline governor of populous American state delivers TWSS before correcting himself.

She Is The Cat And She Is Here To Steal

Yesterday, the Internet was abuzz (classic Internet way to be) about a news story in which a young woman robbed a New York store with a gun while wearing a cat mask. Sure. The perfect crime. The reason that everyone was so excited, though, was not so much the thrill of a well-executed crime, but… More »

New York State Senator Eric Adams Tackles The Tough Issues

Oh boy. I mean, on the one hand, I guess New York State Senator Eric Adams has a point. Sagging pants certainly do open the door to negative stereotyping (although one could then make the counter-argument that changing one's "uncivilized" dress in order to conform and appeal to society's expectations is itself a stereotype, and… More »
