I flew in from Lurk City just to upvote this. Nice one.
I don’t think that’s a grapefruit. It’s what appears to be a bloody mary in a to-go cup.
Now to begin a search for the most prominent Icelandic stand-up comedians.
Wait… wait. I ALSO can’t go to this because I will ALSO be in Iceland! For real. We should totally hold our own Reykjavik satellite edition of Mr. Coconuts.
Once you’ve paid for your coffee, do you have to stare at the ad on the side of the cup for 30 seconds before you drink it? And actually, to be a more directly accurate analogous situation, you would be forced to drink an entirely different beverage for 30 seconds before you can start drinking the beverage you wanted in the first place. Although it may be that they do employ this practice now at Starbucks, I haven’t been to one in a while.
And while we’re at it and perhaps more importantly, what’s with the NOT holding Mr. Coconuts the third Tuesday of the month as usual, but instead the *day after Memorial Day* when some of us, not saying who, but some of us, who might faithfully have attended every month, will still be on vacation because we only get a few vacation days a year and so are forced to travel on holiday weekends? THAT’S BULLSHIT MAN.
I can’t believe I actually DISagree with Gabe about something. I’ll limit my comment to this tidbit: ‘that’s like saying “it’s ridiculous that Starbucks isn’t giving their coffee away for free becuase I want some of it.” ‘ No it’s not like that and that is a terrible analogy. Starbucks isn’t making you sit through commercials to drink their cups of coffee. Come on dude. And if the issue is that advertising online doesn’t generate enough revenue to make airing your shows online worth producing a show — hello, charge more for your online advertising. We’re forced to sit through those anyway, whereas do you know anyone who doesn’t skip through commercials on regular TV? Unless they’re watching a live sporting event or something, which I don’t. I haven’t seen a commercial in years that hasn’t been either (a) forced on me before some show I want to watch online or (b) linked to me directly on youtube because it’s funny or clever.
I think the real issue here, is that judging from the above photo, Jennifer Lawrence is starring in a reboot of Baywatch.
Am I allowed to attend the party if I comment here less often than once a week and by week I mean month? Do I get brownie points for going to every Mr. Coconuts?
Solution! Get around it by doing the later version where they replace Bill and his sax with “we pay tons of income tax.” Bonus points for it having topical relevance. Occupy Water Tower!
Cool, people still use AIM 3.0.
Yes! The Great Muppet Caper! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru8mxxVcPFg
I know that all of you were thinking “wow that guy is cute and what is his phone number and also I hope he’s at least 18 and visits the States sometime” just exactly how I was, but you just forgot to mention it. Obviously. I know that’s what happened.
I dislike this book/movie as much as anyone else here, but “fucking my way across three continents on someone else’s dime” sounds pretty appealing to me.
Yes, yes, a hundred times yes! I love these commercials. I’ve been looking for them online forever.
