The Sklar Bros. Explain the Super Bowl

Fraternal comedy duo the Sklar brothers know what the Super Bowl is all about.  Surprise!  It’s only marginally related to the sport of American football.  The Amish, celebrity train wrecks, and those lead aprons that dentists wear so that when they x-ray you they don’t shrivel their own testes – these are the ingredients in the sports/entertainment complex jambalaya that is the Super Bowl.  See for yourself!

Cars in Buildings


We knew this girl Marilee one time.  She was the hottest girl in our high school, and she was a God-awful driver.  She drove her car directly into a gas station by her house and cracked the foundation of it.  How that is even possible, we don’t know.  But, what we do know, is that it was ridiculously funny to watch such a foxy broad in so thoroughly un-foxy surroundings.  Sound good?  College Humor has a gigantic photo gallery of cars crashing into buildings.

Pretentious OCD Cop Gets Comeuppance

Using the magical powers of Photoshop and an IMDB template, the boys and girls at College Humor have also cobbled together the likely appearance of a “lost” episode of the Emmy-tempting television show Monk.  The best part is Tony Shalhoub’s character being half “cast member from Wings.”  Frick, Wings was awesome.
