The sad thing is that I know exactly what episode that's from.  Burt Reynolds had a cameo at the end.

They stole that from Motel Hell, which was a better movie.

doglover: They stole that from Motel Hell, which was a better movie.


First (only) time I watched Motel Hell I didn't realize it was supposed to be a parody, and I came away thinking it was a semidecent serial killer B-movie with a handful of extremely painful attempts at humor.

Finding out it was a parody that was actually intended to be funny completely ruined it for me.

THAT'S WHAT I WAS THINKING!  She's got a little Laura Prepon in her.  She has a very friendly face and looks like she'd be fun at a dinner date.

Wife and I still talk about these gems courtesy of our local NBC affiliate in the early 90's that did, in fact, have teenagers writing text for their on-screen graphics:

1. (Flood story): "Residents seeking drier waters"
2. (Conflict in Bosnia): described citizens as "angry Romulans"
3. (Storm damage in a minority neighborhood in eastern part of city): "All dark on the Eastside"

It was a non-stop laugh riot with that station. Oddly enough, one of those reporters works on-air for CNN now.

She looks like a cross between Laura Prepon and Olivia Wilde.

wxboy: A lot of those aren't "fails", just the product of bored local news editors.


Maybe not "fails", but definitely worth my time, and funny enough to make a "best" list, even though these things are totally subjective. Enough of them made me laugh that I'm not even pissed at the website for using "best", one of the most over-used adjectives in these sites, along with "epic", "ridiculous", "amazing". "unbelievable", or anything else in a Cracked.com headline. I would definitely say the ones with just placeholders, like the very last one, and the 'Firstname, Lastname' ones were indeed fails. Someone forgot to put in anything, te rest were either unintentionally funny, or the product of bored pranksters, like you said.

These were good. Nice find, Subby.

Gary Roberts has always been "too much man". The guy came back from a broken neck to score 40 goals! Boy I tell ya.

Can someone please explain how PB&J is racist?


I remember seeing this story, and something distracting me before I followed up on it. Oh, look at the date, Sept 12 of last year. BENGHAZI!

Basically, some principal said that using an example of a PB&J sandwich in a classroom exercise was racist because not all cultures eat sandwiches, or some stupid shiat...

Saw was a GREAT movie... I had no patience for the endless sequels, but the original movie was awesome.

Motel Hell? I saw it on Joe Bob Briggs, and that was a good place for it. Cheesy, fun, but nothing special.

Which is the exact same as a Saw flick, only temporally Motel Hell did the pig head thing first. That's all I was pointing out at first. Now I want to remind you all:

There's another pic someone took at a weird angle, shows a different image above but the same text below (different commentator, or zoomed in on one, etc).  Seems legit.  Sometimes the techs in the back trying to piece together the story really fast are idiots, too :)

You can't make comics about rape jokes on the internet? Really? Jeeze... I kinda made a whole career out of that at one time. The only complaints I EVER got about my comic were from Furries who felt picked on because of Bunny Boy.

What, did you only read the first paragraph?  Matt's issue wasn't about the criticism over the rape joke incident, it was about the author of the article lying about pretty much everything else.  The reason I posted it wasn't to defend Matt's behavior, but to show how bad the "journalism" at Buzz Feed can be.

Whatever happened to that jock that enjoyed playing rugby?

I was a huge fan of his, so I emailed him awhile back to find out why he wasn't posting anymore. He was tired of being banned here, so he went elsewhere. I can't remember where. He was in good cheer about it, though.
 
2013-03-16 09:00:59 PM  
Whatever happened to that other p-shopper from WAY way back - he was shy I finally signed up after a few years of lurking.  No not him, the one that did those creepy masks crossing the road.
