Welcome To A Supercut



Burger Fiction’s latest supercut is a welcome change. It’s nice to be welcomed. I think you’ll recognize the majority of these films, not least because many of them have the title in the clip. The word “welcome” will sound really silly by the time this is through. You’re welcome. (via Tastefully Offensive)

Drunk Australians Answer American Trivia Questions



Okay, this premise is guaranteed to be funny. There’s really no reason that Australians should know these things about the United States, but they have a few drinks and give it their best shot anyway. Need I say this contains NSFW language? It does. Anyway, some of these folks know more about America, even drunk, than Americans know about Australia. Honestly, can you name the capital of Australia without looking it up? (via Buzzfeed)

Calvin & Hobbes: Art Before Commerce



Everyone loved Calvin and Hobbes, and they still do, even though the comic ceased over twenty years ago. What is it that made the strip so special? Bill Watterson never phoned it in. He held his comic to the highest standard until he ran out of things to say …and then he quit. The strips never had a chance to become repetitive or cliched. But that’s not all there was to it. Even all these years later, seeing a Calvin and Hobbes strip is a delight. Little boys with vivid imaginations will always be with us, as well as the philosophical questions they have about our confusing world.

Get in the Boat!


When the captain tell you to get in the boat, you better not waste any time! A playground at Munson Park in Monroe, Michigan, is the setting for an epic high seas adventure. When you’re James Hashimoto, the Action Movie Kid, you can go with the flow, because you know that sooner or later, the stories in your adventure will come to life on video. But even if you aren’t, your parents can learn to do this from the tutorials his dad shares. You can see how this particular video was made here. (via Metafilter)

Syncopated Ladies Salute Prince



Today is National Tap Dance Day! You might think tap is an obsolete form of dance, but the troupe Syncopated Ladies puts a modern twist to their routines.
Here they dance to Prince’s song “When Doves Cry.” They dance in perfect rhythm with very little repetition in the routine. This had to take some real work to learn.

Want to see more tap? Check out these 12 famous tap dance routines.

He Stole the Show



It’s the senior talent show. The entire student body has already sat through singers, musicians, and drama students with amazing talent that they’ve seen dozens of times before. Then this guy steps up. He has one talent, and he wrings all the drama he can out of it. Well, to be honest, he probably has other talents. Like showmanship, and making a lot of friends. How else would you draw a standing ovation for tossing a water bottle? The other question is, how long did he train to master this maneuver? (via Viral Viral Videos)
