I always liked Weird Al Yankovic. I used to hear his stuff on the old Dr. Demento show I would tune in with my little transister radio. In a blog entry he calls The Gaga Saga, Weird Al tells a strange tale about Lady Gaga's refusal to allow him to

I just searched Google Images for 'funniest picture ever'. That's the top result, courtesy of defective yeti. I get the feeling I've been Rick Roll'd.
Have you guys heard about this Justin Bieber kid? I hear he's a pretty big deal these days. He's only 16, but the die-hard Leaf fan has already penned his memoirs. That's pretty damn impressive. Even more impressive is Gordon Pinsent's reading of Justin Biebers memoirs.
I'm guessing you've all seen this by now. Jenny supposedly quit her office assistant gig via dry erase board and it's pretty amusing stuff, even if it is probably fake. Here's one of her grievances:
The Barilkosphere has produced a great eulogy for the Montreal Canadiens' 2009-10 season. This gem comes courtesy of Bloge Salming and Down Goes Brown. Here are the lyrics so you can sing along at home: I believed it was meant to be And it felt a little bit like 93
Exactly five years ago today, I wrote about Dave Chappelle. The Associated Press is reporting at this hour that Dave Chappelle has checked himself into a mental health facility in South Africa. "It seems like the issues he's contending with are really quite serious," said Dade Hayes, a senior editor
Let's get the bias declaration out of the way. I like Obama, I dislike Jay Leno. There, it's out there, now let's move on. Last night, at the 2010 White House Correspondents Association Dinner in Washington, D.C., President Obama was very funny. He's been very funny before. In this
I haven't seen something this good in a while. It's a trailer for the upcoming Weird Al Yankovic biopic. Five years ago this month, I wrote about Doctor Demento.
I record SNL because I'm too old to watch it live. On Saturday, I caught up on the Zach Galifianakis show (he's a funny mofo) and last night I got to see one of my favourite bands of all-time (Pearl Jam!). SNL is pretty hit and miss these days, but
I enjoyed this. It's a brief history of pretty much everything.
If you liked the literal version of A-Ha's "Take On Me", the literal version of "Head Over Heels" by Tears For Fears and the literal version of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart", you'll love this. It's the literal version of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean". [via @nytimeshumor]
Yes, I used to watch Pee Wee's Playhouse. I loved that show. It's great to see Pee Wee Herman back in his playhouse getting an iPad.
I've been offline all day and out of the loop. As I catch up on what I've missed, I see Jimmy Kimmel appeared on Jay Leno's show and totally bitch slapped him. Leno doesn't seem to realize he's being publicly pounded on his own show. What happened to NIMBYism? Very

If you like funny, you like Louis CK. I'm not sure there's a funnier guy out there right now. I've been a big fan of his for a while. Heck, I even enjoyed his very short lived HBO sitcom Lucky Louie. From the "better late than never" pile, I finally
A welcome new addition to the Barilkosphere is Bloge Salming. Here's Bloge Salming's Carol of the Bells as performed by Damien Cox of the Toronto Star with backup vocals by Howard Berger of the Fan 590. Merry Christmas!
The Creation of Adam is a section of Michelangelo's fresco Sistine Chapel ceiling painted circa 1511. I don't mean to question the work of Michelangelo, but I've always felt something was missing. Finally, they've fixed it. Here's a pic of The Creation of Adam after the edits. Breaking News: They've
A long time ago, I listed my ten favourite television shows of all-time. Number 8 was "Kids in the Hall", a show that was guaranteed to leave me in stitched when I watched it weekly on CBC from 1988 to 1994. I just found Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch,
Tiger Woods and Jay Z both have problems, but the similarities end there. [via BuzzFeed]
The CollegeHumor.com folks are on a roll. When it comes to original comedic content for the web, they're probably the top dogs right now. They call this clip "Ambiguous Endings Resolved". The final resolution is of The Sopranos and what happened to Tony Soprano after he looked up in
Here are 40 funny and clever print advertisements. This is one of my favourites:
The best and worst thing about Wikipedia is that anyone can edit it. When it comes to the Nickelback Wikipedia page, the vandalism is constant, intense and pretty damn funny. Here's every Nickelback Wikipedia page vandalism, ever. [via CollegeHumour]
I just checked my 680 News RSS feed to see the latest headlines. Here's a screen cap of the two items awaiting me.
