Friday Fun

Every now and again I run into something that makes me laugh. So, when I run across something during the week, I plan on posting it on Fridays.

Apparently, there was a mis-translation of the A-Ha song "Take on Me." For those that do not know, A-Ha is a Norwegian band. Thus, after all these years, someone has come along and made the correct translation from Norwegian into English. The song makes sense now! Take a look!

With the election over, the down hill run of our most beloved president has begun. What are people like Roy Zimmerman going to do? Here is video/song relating to GWB's foreign policy and keeping up with the spirit of Dwayne's last story.

I never knew what kind of Pandora's Box was opened with Dwayne's story a few weeks ago. Now I know.

This picture has been floating around for a while, but it is a favorite of a loyal reader of this blog. Thus, I thought I would post it for Friday fun. Here is the 1954 view of the home computer of 2004. They were so close it is scary!

It is the day after Thanksgiving, but how could I post Friday Fun on a Thursday? In any event, here is a blast from the past! It is one of the finest moments in Thanksgiving Day special-type episodes. I bring you "Turkey's Away". Enjoy!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, the real war on Christmas can begin. However, I would like to extend this holiday greeting from the Happy Tree Friends.

This guy probably got a serious beating for this political statement, but it sums up how I feel about this administration's governance. Thus, I find the video cathartic. Thus, here is one of the many edited versions of the news conference coverage.

Now that one of the major holidays is over, we bring you this a two part blast from the past. It is a classic! I wonder how close it is to Gone with the Wind (I have never seen that movie.) Happy Boxing Day!

Part One

Part Two

I don't know what is more frightening -- the fact that someone wrote this song and got it recorded -- or that they made a video of it. Brace yourselves!

For Dwayne via io9: In this sketch, the Yeti is on the loose in New York City, sitting on people's cold desserts. Spidey and Morgan Freeman (as a police officer) must team up to make sure this cryptozoological pervert doesn't sully any more frozen confections. There are so many good scenes I don't know where to start, but my favorite is when the crazed yeti ruins a pensioner's birthday.

For Dwayne via io9: I can't see why Dracula is still a problem in the Marvel Universe these days. Spider-Man wasted him on his night off in 1974.

|Permalink | No Comments

For Dwayne via io9: Unbeknownst to Bruce Wayne, Lucius Fox used to be a mad scientist until Spider-Man showed him the error of his ways.

|Permalink | No Comments

For Dwayne via io9: I'm beginning to see a pattern here. Does Spider-Man spend most of his time saving birthday parties?

|Permalink | No Comments

For Dwayne via io9: Yes, he is New York City's de facto birthday party protector. Marvel, make this canon.

|Permalink | No Comments

For Dwayne via io9: Spider-Man's adventures in the Electroverse are so banal but so relatable. Screw Stegron and Big Wheel robbing banks. I want Spider-Man to use his powers to investigate petty consumer fraud.

|Permalink | No Comments

For Dwayne via io9: Does Peter Parker exist in this universe? I mean, Spider-Man goes to the baseball stadium in his costume. This isn't a complaint, mind you. And hey, it's Morgan Freeman again, cured of his vampirism!

|Permalink | No Comments

For Dwayne via io9: Yes, that Blue Beetle. At the time, the Blue Beetle was owned by Charlton Comics, so it was no big deal for him to go on The Electric Company and have Spider-Man make him look like a chump.

|Permalink | No Comments

For Dwayne via io9: He's so strong he can purloin letters from the alphabet. It's official — Electroverse Spider-Man is my favorite incarnation of the hero.

|Permalink | No Comments

For Dwayne via io9: The villains on The Electric Company aren't evil as much as they're just a bunch of weirdos. Here's the time his lunch was ruined by some performance artist who put a rubber glove in his sandwich.
