 Worst (But Funniest) Pep Talk, Ever

 

  


 

The worst pep talk, ever! But This new “Dilly! Dilly!” is the funniest.

Water is Dangerous and Funny

 

Did you know that water is the most extreme and dangerous beverage on Earth? Seriously. Water kills people. So why not offer an honest product, Liquid Death … it’s real.

Liquid Death did a market test by posting a funny video—all about how water is really the most extreme and dangerous beverage on Earth—and some pictures of the product. In less than two months, with only $600 in paid media, the video has 1.2 million views on Facebook.

 

  

 

 

The video is a bit long, but hang in there. It’s funny.

And You Want to Know Why I Don’t Like Flying …

Entertaining Vent ConVENTion Highlights from 1987 

Okay, this is depressing, if you’re Dale … or funny, if you’re anyone else.

 

If you skip ahead to the 2:47 mark of this clip, you’ll see a short interview with a very young Dale Brown, and a perpetually good looking me. Right after that, at the 3:20 mark, you’ll see an even younger Jeff Dunham during his “I want to look like Dale Brown” phase. (Nice pink shirt, Jeff.)

 

By the way, the video has a great ending with all of the voices supplied by Jeff. 

 

 

 

 

Historical preservation of things like this is one of the primary tenents of Vent Haven Museum … and why the museum is so important, and so fascinating.  Visit and support Vent Haven Museum.

Signs That Caught My Glass Eyes

 

 

 There’s a honeymoon joke in here somewhere.

 

 

I don’t speak the language, but I think I know what he’s selling.

 

 

This is why you have a professional design your sign.

 

 

Not sure that’s the best name for a business.

 

 

The small sign says, “Strictly No Access to Foyer.”  Thanks to Jay Johnson from backstage somewhere in Australia.

 

This is an example of why commas are important.
