VP Joe Biden goes full VEEP

I changed by Time Warner deal and somehow landed HBO for a year.  I know how.  They want me to have it cheap for one year so that I won't be able to get rid of it next year when the deal ends and my bill skyrockets.  Anyways, I had wanted to watch VEEP with Julia Louis-Dreyfus playing a gaffe-prone vice president.  Other than the excessive use of expletives, the show is hilarious and I recommend it to anyone and everyone.  For the White House Correspondents dinner Julia Louis-Dreyfus got the real Vice President, Joe Biden to go on a full VEEPish trip through the White House.

Cake or Death - Disney Style

Eddie Izzard is funny.  Now he is animated with clips from Disney movies during one of his funniest bites.

The Daily Show on Vaccinations

After typing out the post about vaccines, I sat down to watch the Daily Show.  To my surprise, they tackled the exact same topic.  Their take was much more crass, but much funnier as well.

TED Talk Tuesday: Randall Munroe

As the cartoonist of xkcd comics, Randall Munroe combines science and comedy in a simple but creative way.  His famously funny stick figure drawings show up all over the internet, and he showed up at TED to talk about "What if"?  As a side part of xkcd, Munroe also produces a series of comics that answer that very question.  In this talk, he explains some of his thoughts and a very funny but powerful example.

Ricky Gervais on Creation

Here is a clip from Ricky Gervais' stand-up routine.  This funny, funny man created the hit show The Office in the UK, which transplanted into the US.  Anyways, I found this one to be quite funny- especially the part about the snake (not one of the better creations).
