A few months ago, Web Watch posted a compilation of parodies of various Saturday Night Live Digital Shorts done by The Lonely Island folks (Andy Samburg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone, with help from Justin Timberlake and friends).

Here are a few more:

FATHER LOVER

black canvas duffle bagHaving extremely large genitals causes all sorts of issues.  Issues that are worth writing a song about, apparently.  Not the least of which is that it causes one to pee for 43 minutes.

Watch the video to find out what other problems one may have if one were to suffer from that affliction.

Six Chocolate-Bacon Recipes


By web gangsta | Published:

A few weeks ago, Web Watch bought a Vosges Chocolate Bacon candy bar, just to see what all the fuss was about.

We get it.  It wasn’t perfect, but it had promise.  We shared the bacon-chocolate with others and reviews came back ranging from “ewwww” to “wow”.

So considering how many people are putting bacon into all types of desserts, Web Watch thought we’d throw some of the more interesting ideas together here.  Try some of these and report back what you’ve come up with.  Be careful and don’t eat too much: chocolate-covered bacon is also why you’re fat.

Parents’ Guide to the Movies, Video Games, and More


By web gangsta | Published:

These days, parents have a hard time keeping track of what is good for their kids, or what their kids should avoid – if only due to the sheer amount of content that parents need to stay up with.

Did any of the parents who brought their young kids to a free concert in Central Park last week know what to expect when Green Day took the stage?  The concert was sponsored by ABC’s Good Morning America and Walgreen’s, so nothing offensive was going to happen, right?

Watching that clip, you can see the parents with their kids happily singing along to every curse word used in the song.  But I’m sure there were some families in the crowd that did not expect a TV morning show concert to contain profanity.

Disgruntled Employees Pee and Poop All Over their Offices


By web gangsta | Published:

Business Insider is reporting a disturbing new trend in employee response to the current economy:  DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEES ARE POOPING AROUND THE OFFICE.

Merrill Lynch spokespeople are not confirming this, but employees are reporting that they found a turd in the stairwell of the New York bank headquarters last week.

Nobody has come forward to claim ownership of the poo.

10 Things You Don’t Know About… Orgasms


By web gangsta | Published:

In February 2009, author Mary Roach gave a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) talk entitled 10 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ORGASMS.

You can watch her talk here (and Web Watch highly recommends watching it, if only for the amusing video clip used to demonstrate item #7), but for convenience sake, Web Watch has included Mary’s ten items after the break.

Get 20,000 Followers, Get a Twitter Tattoo


By web gangsta | Published:

Josh Highland, as we saw in Web Watch yesterday, is classified on Tweeting Too Hard as being a narcisstic Twitter tool.  Not at the top of the list, but a tool nonetheless.

But he doesn’t deserve to be on that list.  He just tweets about things that are meaningful to him.

Like trying to get 20,000 Twitter users to follow him. Continue reading GET 20,000 FOLLOWERS, GET A TWITTER TATTOO

How Much of a Twitter Tool Are You?


By web gangsta | Published:

A few months ago, Web Watch posted a CALCULATION TO DETERMINE HOW NARCISSTIC A CELEBRITY WAS IN USING TWITTER.

It ends up that we didn’t need to bother, as a calculation is unnecessary.

TWEETING TOO HARD is a look at what people are Twittering about, and if you find your tweets getting posted on the site, the general consensus will be, “Yes, you ARE a tool… and here’s the proof.” Continue reading HOW MUCH OF A TWITTER TOOL ARE YOU?

How To Find Celebrities’ Real Names


By web gangsta | Published:

Some celebrities use their real names.

Some celebrities use an alias.

NOM DE GUERRE bills itself as “the Real People’s Real Name Resource of Pseudonyms and Aliases”.  Granted, it hasn’t really been updated since around 2003, so some of the more recent names you might be looking for are probably missing.

How Long Can You Hold Your Pee at the Movies?


By web gangsta | Published:

Does this ever happen to you?

You go to the movies and stop at the snack bar for the “small” soda and popcorn before settling into your seat.  Then you sit through 10 minutes of slideshow movie trivia and 20 minutes of trailers before the movie you came to see finally starts.

And then you have soda regret.  The opening credits are rolling, and your bladder is full.  But you’ve been waiting for this film for months – you don’t want to miss anything by running out to the bathroom now… 

Pop quiz.  What do you do, hot shot?  What do you do?

Join WSOP champion Annie Duke at “Sucking Out On The Rivers” poker tourney


By web gangsta | Published:

What are you doing on Wednesday May 27th?

If you didn’t like the outcome of this year’s Celebrity Apprentice… and who did?… then this is your chance to join in a little good natured revenge with proceeds going to Refugees International.

(I mean really – while I admit that the last few Celebrity Apprentice episodes were hysterically entertaining, everyone knows that the best quality finale would have been between Jesse James vs Annie Duke.  That would have been awesome.  And we would next like to see Annie and Jesse take on Dancing with the Stars next.  But I digress.) 

What do you need to do to join in the fun?  Just join poker champion Annie Duke at the SUCKING OUT ON THE RIVERS POKER TOURNAMENT at the Hard Rock Casino’s poker room in Las Vegas.

Annie Duke and renowned Joan Rivers impersonator Frank Marino are joining forces on this charity poker tournament.  Buy-in is $200 (with re-buys), and they expect a few poker pros to come out and join the fun.  There are also going to be 20 other Joan Rivers impersonators playing along, each one with a bounty on their head for the lucky player who knocks them out.

Advance information is saying that the tournament is going to start at 6pm, but considering how much fun this sounds like, I wouldn’t be surprised if it started later and ran long into the night.

Full press release after the break. Continue reading JOIN WSOP CHAMPION ANNIE DUKE AT “SUCKING OUT ON THE RIVERS” POKER TOURNEY

Improving Disney Shopping, part 3: Better Merchandise Options


By web gangsta | Published:

Up Hawaiian Shirt from Disney/PixarIn previous posts that talk about improving the Disney shopping experience, Web Watch has touched upon Disney now making exclusive park merchandise available online and a request for Disney to make better merchandise options available than the standard “t-shirt, snowglobe, design-it-yourself” options… especially when it comes to available adult clothing or other products available for sale.

Today, I’m pleased to report that we may see a small turning of the giant, slow moving, merchandise cruise ship into more favorable winds.

More of the Most Common Facebook Photos and Poses


By web gangsta | Published:

A few months ago, Web Watch presented the TOP 20 MALE POSES SEEN ON FACEBOOK, but that appears to be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to stereotypical Facebook photos and poses.

Urban Dictionary even has a definition for “Facebook Pose”:   An “I look so good from this angle” pose that people pull when someone is taking a picture of them that is likely to appear on facebook. Such pictures are usually taken at a concert/party/club, and are posted for no reason other than to make people appear successful popular and like they have a life.

Here are the SIX MOST COMMON FACEBOOK PHOTOS: Continue reading MORE OF THE MOST COMMON FACEBOOK PHOTOS AND POSES
