Protective glass isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

New York’s hottest nightclub is Drowning, where you’re only given an hour’s worth of oxygen and poisonous jellyfish swim next to you.

#1 Frank Lloyd Wrong | Jun 11th Score:53

This was a great shot:

But then I was waiting for the building in front of them to crumble to The Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind.”

[Assoc. Ed. Note: I feel like I should mention that Frank Lloyd Wrong’s Peggy Window GIF was actually rated higher than this #1 Frank Lloyd Wrong comment, but, even though that was a very good GIF, we all know the rule about GIFs. And what do you want, Frank Lloyd Wrong? TWO #1s? Give us all a break. Congratulations first, of course, but then second: give us a break. Also congratulations to everyone else! Yay! Weekend!]

Alex Lane | Jun 13th Score:-44
this series is probably the most irritating thing on videogum, its like they’re trying to out quirk each other, not funny.

[Ed. Note: Perhaps we might be able to interest you in one of the HUNDREDS OF OTHER POSTS WE PUT UP EVERY WEEK. If you know that you don’t like it, just don’t read it. Unless someone has a gun to your head in which case I’m so sorry someone has a gun to your head and for what?! To read a blog post? The world is insane!]

This Week’s Associate Editor’s Choice

hotspur | Jun 13th Score:14

I’m not sure that’s a Labyrinth-themed wedding. I think that is a Poison-themed wedding, which would make him CC DeVille, not David Bowie, and she’s Rikki Rockett. Some internet prankster has paired them with a scene from a totally unrelated movie just to make them look foolish. You could do this with any wedding photo, really, to make any couple look foolish.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: “You could do this with any wedding photo, really, to make any couple look foolish,” is just one of the funniest things I’ve read ANYWHERE all week. Great job, hotspur. I’ve sent to multiple people and made them read it. “Look at how funny this comment is,” is what I’d say to preface it.]

There are now more vampires on TV than all other minorities combined

heimaey | Jun 12th Score:4

How nice for them that they can be legally married in all 50 states.

Posted in: OK, Jurassic Park Wedding Proposal, You Got Me

[Ed. Note: This week we have TWO editor’s choice winners because they’re both great. Got a couple of cultural commentary sharp-shooters on our hands LOOKOUT! But seriously, guys, there are too many vampires on TV and it is ridiculous that everyone can’t be married. Sometimes you gotta just face the facts. LOL?]
