Because Sharing is Caring

I just thought I'd post a few things that have made me happy in the last little while. And not happy in the "pure joy that only comes from keeping the commandments" type happy, but in the friggin hilarious makes me lollerz daily type of happiness.

If you haven't already, add these following websites to your Google Reader now....

www.peopleofwalmart.com

PREMISE: People take pictures of the hooligans that shop at the local WalMart and send then in to be posted and ridiculed. Best. Idea. Ever. Oh, you want an example of what you'll see? Ok, here...




oh, and....



This site is updated every day sometimes multiple times a day. It's a can't miss. And now, my WalMart shopping trip is made more interesting as I keep my phone handy and in the camera mode. I will send something in to this site if it's the last thing I do. Promise.



www.awkwardfamilyphotos.com

PREMISE: People send in (what else?) awkward family photos. Some are more awkward than others but they are all entertaining in their own way.

Examples? Fine...here...





....and my personal favorite for reasons I can't explain...




http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com


PREMISE: People order cakes and the cake decorators take it upon themselves to misspell words, misunderstand the order, create disgusting looking cakes, and make the cakes as unappetizing as possible....these people then send in a photo of these cakes and hilarious commentary ensues. Stands and I had plans of going to the book signing of the founder of this site last week but for various reasons (including the swine flu) we didn't quite make it.







This site runs the gamut....wedding cakes, Lenin cakes (yes, Lenin), creepy birthday cakes. It's the site that makes me go ::smacking head:: WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS????? I also browse the bakery at every grocery store I go into hoping to see something worthy of a picture to send in. This one will be a bit more difficult to get published on than peopleofwalmart.com though... the bakers around here are so far proving themselves to be undumb.

So add these to your Google Readers, add the Google app to your iPhone and you will never be bored while sitting and waiting for an oil change, sitting in the carpool lane at your local school or during sacrament meeti....er, I mean at a particularly long stop light. Thank me later.

As for TV, I have officially broken up with Heroes. We grew apart. It wasn't me, it was them. Dumb storylines. I was sick of most of the characters. I don't have 40 minutes to spend a week watching it anymore. Gty is trying to carry on without me. We'll see how long he lasts.

In it's place I have added Hoarders and will begin watching Obsessed (as soon as my DVR catches one) both on A&E. These kinds of people were always my favorites on Oprah and Dr. Phil...why not a full hour dedicated to them? Why not indeed.

And my new favorite TV show?



I adore Joel McHale and, not surprisingly, the directors and producers are from a couple of my all-time favorite shows....Scrubs and Arrested Development. If you haven't given it a chance, give it one now.

I think that's it for now.... my life revolves around being entertained so I'm a bit of an expert on the matter. If you don't like any of these endorsements I offer a full money-back guarantee.

This post is just like Oprah's favorite things episode.

I think Olan Mills did a great job of trying to blend that guy into the background of his solo photo.

Community is funny, but even if it wasn't, I'd watch it just for Joel. Amy <3's Joel. (I learned how to make those keyboard hearts on facebook)

Jenny ESP said...

Community is your fave? Hmmm. I have a different fave new show. A lil program called Glee.

Yes, yes, cake wrecks. And I visit that "awkward family pictures" blog from time to time as well. My favorite picture is the one of the grown family up in the tree, straddling a branch. The people of walmart is another brilliant one. What else can we do? Think, Landee, think! T-shirt Wrecks?

Jenny ESP said...

PS. Your links don't work, except for cakewrecks. BTW, awkward family photos has funner pictures than the other two, but the commentary falls flat don't you think? Way lame. Cakewrecks lady writes the funniest stuff.

All of these have been wonderful additions to my life. In the past and in the future. I'm sure others will be thanking you for years to come.

ManicMandee said...

Thanks for the tips. Wow, that's gonna make everyone's lives much more pleasant.

That guy is totally holding Starla.

You caused me great embarrassment as I burst out laughing just as our department head was passing my cage window. It was that picture of the speedo/white teddy wedding; and how am I supposed to explain that.

I was lukewarm on Community until last weeks episode - brilliant! Seize the day!!

What's strange and saddy for me is how you have completely dissed SYTYCD. Not a single post from last season, and not one mention of the new one? Did you break up with it too? What did it ever do to you? Heroes can easily move on without you, but I can feel SYTYCD's pain. It's curled up in a fetal position eating bon-bons right now. Soooo sad.

Those sites are too funny. I also like passiveaggressivenotes.com. It makes you wonder what people would do if they couldn't put down their frustrations on paper.

Two more for you:

Promising some awesome pics from wallshiz. They may involve two very large...perhaps obese people wearing camo sweat pants holding hands while each driving their electric carts. No kidding here...

Glo said...

I love all these sites, and Community, we die laughing every week. It is such a treat to see joel mchale on more than just the soup!

Katie said...

I just set a season pass for Hoarders. It makes me feel good about myself. I saw some hillarious clips from the walmart people website on one of my favorite shows, Tosh.0. Its a web clip show, much like the Soup (starring Joel Mchale), it can be immature at times, but so can I.

Flem said...

Your mocking of the impoverished and illiterate is touching.

But I can't help but think I wish there were a stealth cam on my phone to take pics of people in the various wal-marts on my travels. I saw a doozy this week.

I have not seen the show but it cannot possibly be better than Glee.

Sorry.
