Matin Comedy explains the top 5 ways not to hit on a female Jedi at the office. And all this time, you thought you were doing it right…
An American’s perception of the rest of the world, and indeed their own mighty nation, is a naive thing indeed. So says The World According to Americans, a comically altered map of the globe. On the evidence presented here, every country and every sea and every continent on the face of this here Earth can best be summed up with a simple cultural stereotype, vague and harsh and uninformed as it may be. The U.S. lives in the civilised world, of course. Their upstairs neighbours, they’re vegetarians. Those folks over there in Eastern Europe, they’re all commies. Africa? They’ve got AIDS. Oh, and above them? Fucking desert, dude!
The World According to Americans is designed by Bulgarian artist Yanko Tsvetkov, aka the alphadesigner. It is part of his satirical Mapping Stereotypes project, which sees him mapping out the globe with side-splitting cultural stereotypes taken from the perspectives of various different nations. You can see the rest of Mapping Stereotypes here, but I think most will agree this is the best, and funniest, entry in a tremendously hilarious project.

If, like me, you own a dog and you care for your dog and you feed it and you play with it and you clean up its poop, then you may have at one point or another wondered what it would be like if your dog could talk. Admittedly, most dogs’ talking points would simply be, “feed me,” “lemme out” and “pick up my poop,” but what if your dog could speak of something other than their baser urges, like Brian from Family Guy?
A hilarious and imaginative tumblr account called Text from Dog imagines such a thing, and takes it one step further: what if your dog had a cell phone and could text you? The blog, created three months ago, posts the conversations between a dog and its owner (October Jones), as captured by the owner’s iPhone. The name of the mischievous mutt featured in the blog has no known name (although it appears to have opposable thumbs), but the owner’s twitter account shows that it is a bulldog.
Below are some of their hysterical SMS conversations (warning: there’s some swearing), as captured and posted by Mr Jones. Enjoy, laugh and thank the heavens above that your dog can’t text you. [Read more…]
“Family Guy” fans are sure to be flocking to movie theatres all over the country this weekend thanks to the release of “Ted,” the directorial debut of Seth MacFarlane, the show’s creator and primary voice actor. To celebrate its release, ThisBlogRules is taking a look back at the greatest cutaway gags from “Family Guy”’s illustrious 13-year history, and there’s certainly no shortage of clips to pick from: each 22-minute episode contains on average seven or eight cutaway gags, the vast majority of which have absolutely nothing to do with any given episode’s plot.
Note: I think you’ll be relieved to know that Mr. Conway Twitty is not featured below. God, he’s even more annoying than that time… [Read more…]
A semi-recent trend to pop up in the geek-ridden terrain of the internet movie blog is that of the alternate movie poster: basically, an amateurly produced piece of artwork intended to pose as marketing material for a full-length feature. Effectively kick-started by the sublime works of Austin-based company Mondo, the trend has ultimately stretched to the four corners of the earth, with movie-loving artists the world over designing and presenting their very own alternative posters to the ones displayed at one time or another inside a theatre near you.
Ranging from the clever to the ingenious, the simple to the intricate, the classic to the contemporary, and the funny to the utterly spell-binding, alternate movie posters really can prove that sometimes an amateur’s work can be better than a professional’s, as you shall see in the 25 stunning examples assembled below.
