When Ebaumsworld Was My World, Too

Comments (10)

So, I challenged my friends to be funny because I was too lazy to think of anything clever myself.

Me: 1...
Me: 2...
Me: 3...
Me: GO!
Jeremiah: FUNNY!
gRegor: ...
Me: Fail.
gRegor: so... I just flew in from LA
gRegor: BOY ARE MY ARMS TIRED!
Me: *headdesk*
gRegor: you get what you pay for.
Me: Clearly.

It didn't work out so well. Instead, I'm going to share some other funnies with you. These are the things I had on repeat throughout the whole of my (first) freshman year of college. (That would be 2004 - 2005, for those of you keeping track at home.)

Warning: Not all of these are safe to watch at work or around children.

  • Tiny Plaid Ninjas - The only ninjas I actually won't try to kill. They're just that awesome.
  • The Evil Strawberry - The kid in this video sounds exactly like my friend's little brother. It's creepy.
  • The End of the World - Classic. If you haven't seen this, you haven't lived. "Ah, motherland!"
  • Aicha - My suitemate and I learned this dance and did it over and over again. This was a great way to annoy our roommates, who were usually trying to study.
  • Numa Numa - Someone actually had this playing at the church one night before music team practice. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't actually dreaming. Not exactly the kind of thing you expect church people to know about, I guess.
  • Banana Phone - This song will not get out of my head to this day.

To get the full experience, make sure you're eating chocolate chip Pop-Tarts and sitting on a pile of dirty laundry while watching these videos in your pajamas. Go ahead and curse your textbooks, too, when they fall over on your desk and block your view of the internet.

First! Now let me go read it.

What if I don't have chocolate chip Pop-Tarts?! What then?!

Well, gee, I wasn't invited to the funny party. Fah! In other news, I had more or less forgotten Banana Phone, and you're an evil, evil person for having mentioned it.

And here I was thinking that by Ebaumsworld you meant 4chan. *heavy sigh*

You and your suitemate really should post your own version of Aicha.

Two words: Chicken Dance.

gRegor - Haha. Dork.

Jeremiah - Then I have to mail you some with your DVDs.

Thursday's Child - Bwa ha ha.

Tez - *hangs head in shame*

james - We did make some videos of the two of us bean bag sliding for YouTube, but we never did the Aicha thing on camera. Probably because neither of us actuaully had a proper method of recording video with sound. :( She's since graduated, so I guess I'll have to find someone else to make the videos with me.

chris - One word: awesome.

Elisabeth

Surprisingly, that Strawberry thing doesn't get old. "I don't like those words..."

I thought the plaid ninjas were my favorites till I saw the banana phone thing.

Elisabeth - "I AM NOT STUPID ANYMORE!"

golfwidow - The tiny plaid ninjas are extremely quotable, which is part of why I love them so. The banana phone thing is just so annoying it's cool. I'd have a hard time playing favorites with this group of links.
