I like Splash'N Boots. Not just the performers, who have thoroughly entertained my youngest two kids, but the people. I've met both several times and they've paid two visits to my home for episodes of Toronto Mike'd. Here they are, if you missed it. Episode 263 w/ Splash'N Boots Splash'N
My Twitter feed lit up like a Christmas tree yesterday during Tom Brady's press conference. They were asking him about allegations the Patriots cheated by intentionally deflating the footballs used during their conference final win against Indianapolis. Tom Brady had to answer questions about balls, and most couldn't resist cracking
I realize I'm a little late to this party, but I finally dove into Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee by Jerry Seinfeld. It's very funny. Almost all episodes run less than 20 minutes each so you can bang off a season fairly quickly. Guests include such funny people as Larry
Albert Brooks has always made me laugh. Whether in movies like Broadcast News and Mother or his hilarious characters on The Simpsons, I find Brooks to be a funny guy. When I was a kid, I'd watch Super Dave Osbourne on John Byner's Bizarre. 7-year old Mike loved the character,
Kurtis Scott is a Toronto animator who posts funny videos he calls Kurtoons on his blog. My personal favourites are his Subway Thoughts because they're so damn true. Here are a few of Kurtis Scott's Subway Thoughts. Boz & Coco Crazy Eye Contact Dinner Time Breathing Room The Old Man
Titled as found on Reddit. The pic is a spoof of some new Apple thing announced at the WWDC. You fanboys can have your closed systems... I doubt I'll ever buy another Apple product in my lifetime.
This news report from Dallas amuses me. A woman plans to buy $100,000 worth of the latest iPhone, the day they go on sale. Her plan is to sell them on eBay and make a tidy profit. She shows up to the store 15 minutes before it opens, ready
Ok, I'm done with the "Shit X Say" video fad. Well, I'm almost done. We'll wrap it up with Shit Drake Says. That is all.
Don Cherry's piano desk helps emphasize his arguments.
The worst Christmas song of all time is Christmas Shoes by NewSong. This is a great bit by Patton Oswalt in which he picks Christmas Shoes apart. I dare you to name a worse Christmas song.
Readers of this blog already know I love Louis C.K., and now I have another reason sing his praises. Instead of offering his Beacon Theatre performance as an overpriced CRM-loaded DVD, Louis C.K. is selling it as a $5 download. Fans can pay via Palpal at https://buy.

Releasing balloons for orphans at the University of West England in Bristol goes not as planned. At least that's the quote that accompanies this video. Pretending for a moment these balloons do in fact include messages from orphans, your job is to watch and not laugh. Who laughed? I want
If you're ever at a party, and the subject of God comes up, be like George Carlin. George Carlin got it, as you'll hear in this little interview he gave in 2007. Seriously, George Carlin was fucking brilliant, and we miss him. Here's a pretty amazing tribute to George Carlin
This is In the Fall by Steve Cutts. I quite like it.
The UK riots have their own Google doodle. [via b3ta board]
Zach Galifianakis recently did an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. These quotes are just awesome. His longest job was on a Fox drama called Tru Calling, about a mortuary attendant played by Eliza Dushku who could commune with the dead. He tried his hardest to get fired. He’d tell
I'm enjoying a site called Literally Unbelievable that shares "Stories from The Onion as interpreted by Facebook". Here's one such example: Are there really folks out there who don't realize The Onion is satire?
