Awesome Funny Stuff

Anti-Sleep Study Chair

Anti-Sleep Study Chair

We’ve really been enjoying the wacky inventions on Handy Geng’s YouTube channel. Among them is this metal chair that ensures whoever sits in it won’t fall asleep. It uses a set of terrifying spring-loaded spikes that pop out of its seat, and a goofy motion-sensor hat that triggers them if its occupant starts to nod off.

Interstellar Meme Train

Interstellar Meme Train

We all know how much Christopher Nolan likes to play with time, space, and physics in his movies. NADUDE pokes fun at the classic docking sequence from Interstellar with a model train that rides around a circular track which then starts moving in the same direction and the same speed.

Backyard Squirrel Maze 2.0

Backyard Squirrel Maze 2.0

A while back, engineer Mark Rober built an obstacle course to try and keep squirrels from getting to his birdseed. Ultimately, the smart squirrels figured it out, so he decided to up his game with a far more complicated maze that’s even trickier to navigate. Will the squirrels get their claws on Mark’s nuts again?

Welcome to Wrexham

Welcome to Wrexham

Actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have teamed up to purchase a football club in Wales. In order to greet the local fans, they hired a translator to relay their messages in their native tongue – and it doesn’t go as expected. Keep an eye on FX for their documentary series about the team and their involvement.

Sinking Ship Drinking Glass

The sea was angry that day, my friends… an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. Each time you sip a drink from this unique glass, you’ll put the imaginary passengers on this tiny cruise ship in peril. The handblown borosilicate glass is perfect for sipping colorful cocktails with icebergs made in your freezer.

Just Passing with Dr. Zussman

Just Passing with Dr. Zussman

Before we watched this animated short film, we thought Between Two Ferns was the most awkward talk show ever. But Anat Efrati & Yannay Matarasso’s graduation film sure got us feeling more uneasy than Zach Galifianakis ever did within seconds of Dr. Zussman’s mystery guest arriving on stage.

Omni-Man is Cave Johnson

Omni-Man is Cave Johnson

Actor J.K. Simmons has made a career out of playing some of the most loathsome characters ever (and that guy in the Farmers Insurance commercials). YouTuber Opner combined footage from his performance as Omni-Man in Invincible with his famous “when life gives you lemons” rant as Cave Johnson in Portal 2.

FPV Robot Lawnmower

FPV Robot Lawnmower

There are a number of legitimate robot lawnmowers on the market today, but none are as quite as exciting as the one that I Did a Thing built for himself. Instead of navigating on its own, this robot features an FPV remote control setup, and it looks terrifying. We cringed every time we saw him walking near it without shoes on.

Making Kids Toys More Dangerous

Making Kids Toys More Dangerous

Kids who grew up in the 1980s and before could almost certainly count on their toys to offer some risk of injury. But thanks to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the fear of lawsuits, they’re far tamer these days. The Backyard Scientist teamed up with William Osman and Peter Sripol to Make Toys Dangerous Again.

The CutScene

The CutScene

(Gore) The VFX artists at Corridor usually embellish live-action footage. They went full-CGI this time out, poking fun at video games, their over-the-top cutscenes, and how trapping a difficult boss in an unskippable cutscene might be the one way to take him down.

Adorable Circle of Life Book

Artist Alex Solis created this hilariously warped “children’s” book which features cute and fuzzy animals doing what they do in real life – eating other smaller, cuter and fuzzier animals. Solis also made a coloring book along the same lines.

Levitating Hot Dog Cooker

Levitating Hot Dog Cooker

Inspired by science instructor Bruce Yeany, YouTuber NightHawkInLight wanted to see if he could cook a hot dog while it floated in the air. NightHawk improved on Yeany’s compressed air levitation, using a nichrome and copper coil to heat his wiener instead of a blowtorch.

SNL: The Muppet Show

SNL: The Muppet Show

If you watch The Muppet Show, one thing you can always count on is an appearance by those grumpy old hecklers Statler and Waldorf. Well, in this sketch from SNL, Kenan Thompson and Keegan-Michael Key play a couple of security guards who have had quite enough of their disruptive behavior and look to put an end to it.

How to Make a Tricycle

How to Make a Tricycle

A normal tricycle has one wheel in the front and two in the back for balance. But nobody says the three wheels have to be arranged that way. So builder The Q got to work putting together a tricycle that has all three wheels arranged in parallel. It looks harder to ride than a regular bicycle, but it sure is unique.

How to Remove Corn from the Cob

How to Remove Corn from the Cob

Removing corn kernels from the cob can be an arduous and time-consuming task. But not so for Handy Geng, who built himself a ridiculously over-engineered machine that spews out corn kernels by the hundreds after loading up its magazine. He probably should invest in a bigger basket though.

Basically Another Tom Scott Video

Basically Another Tom Scott Video

Tom Scott loves to visit interesting places, share fascinating stories, and speak about them with authority. After amusing us with his spot-on impression of the vlogger, comedian Matt Colbo is back with multiple Tom Scotts, envisioning what might happen they cloned the YouTube celeb.

The Pizza Compass

The Pizza Compass

A normal compass uses the Earth’s magnetism to point North. But wouldn’t it be useful if compasses could point to more specific things? WIRED challenged maker Joe Grand to build a compass that sniffs out places that serve pizza and points its user in the right direction for a pepperoni fix no matter where they are.

Ferrell and Grohl Sing Leather and Lace

Ferrell and Grohl Sing Leather and Lace

(PG-13: Language) Back in 2008, comedian and actor Will Ferrell joined musician Dave Grohl on stage for an unlikely but hilarious performance. Sit back and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime duet of Stevie Nicks and Don Henley’s 1981 classic Leather and Lace.

More Dunkey More Problems

More Dunkey More Problems

Videogamedunkey presents the debut single off of his fictitious album “Yo Peter, pass me the meatballs.” The prolific video game reviewer offers up a rap about his mad YouTube and gaming skillz set to the tune of The Notorious B.I.G.’s Mo Money Mo Problems, which itself is set to the tune of Diana Ross’ I’m Coming Out.

Ok, Folks.

Ok, Folks.

Fans of the LockPickingLawyer know that he’s a master at breaking into supposedly secure locking mechanisms. He also has a little catchphrase, which Kyle Anderson compiled into this brief, but satisfying matrix of some of Lawyer’s successful break-ins.

Baby Got Bach

Baby Got Bach

There I Ruined It destroys another popular track. This time they combined the Sir-Mix-A-Lot hit Baby Got Back with the classical sounds of J.S. Bach, under the direction of conductor Leonard Bernstein. Our anacondas don’t want none of this.

Ford Festiva Lawnmower

Ford Festiva Lawnmower

The Ford Festiva was a popular subcompact car sold from 1986 to 2002. You don’t see many on the road anymore. We like what Ginger Billy did with this old Festiva – converting it into a tiny pickup truck, then outfitting it with a powerful lawnmower. Now, Billy can cover more ground in less time and stay in the shade while he’s at it.

Alugalug Cat x The Kiffness

Alugalug Cat x The Kiffness

Musician The Kiffness took footage of a strange-sounding kitty known as the “Alugalug Cat” and turned it into a smooth and mellow groove, adding just the right mix of electronic beats and velvety vocals to the cat’s melodic meows.

The Pogo Bicycle

The Pogo Bicycle

We’ve seen a bicycle that can walk, and another that can ride on ice, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen a bike that can jump. Scotty and Matty Cranmer of Can’t Slow Down show off their crazy creation, which has a pair of curved, spring-loaded pogo sticks in place of wheels.

Making a Skittles Donut

Making a Skittles Donut

You could make a Skittles-flavored donut by sprinkling some of the chewy candies on a glazed Krispy Kreme, but the guys at the Hydraulic Press Channel prefer to make donuts with industrial equipment. Using a custom-machined tool, they squish some M&Ms and Skittles into toroid shapes. They look like giant Life Savers.
