Good point, Peter.
This is making the rounds among the foreign English teachers in Korea.
As my friend said, “Take a minute to watch this and try not to laugh.”
Please give me “Coke”.
And to think they’re trying to pare down the number of native English speakers here.
*EDIT: This is from EBS, the national education broadcasting channel, roughly equivalent to PBS back home.
This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Why am I just finding out about this now??
Colbert and Stewart lose it on air.
Classic. Thanks Homer. *Great advice* >_<
One of the most common retorts in a mommyjacker’s comment arsenal is some form of, “Just wait until you have kids.” In a sense, all of mommyjacking can be explained in those six words, so for a while I found myself more interested in submissions that didn’t include some variation of that classic response. It wasn’t that I was bored of those submissions so much as I wanted to highlight other types of mommyjacking, like deathjacking and shamejacking and milestonejacking. But while I was busy posting those slightly “edgier” examples, I was still collecting a diaper pail’s worth of classic mommyjacking submissions that, when read together, are simply hilarious.
I suppose I just enjoy rounding up analogous submissions and then reading them in succession for kicks. Read independently, the submissions are slightly obnoxious, but together, they create a megamommyjacking entity, like a force field of narcissism. Below, I’ve collected some (not even all!) of these classic hijackings to take things old school, mommyjacking style.
1. Your Good Week < Your Firstborn
Hey, Lindsay, did you get a promotion or a clean bill of health or eat an awesome plate of nachos or something? Just wait til your lil first child is born [self-righteous winky face]. The feeling is out of the world. THE WORLD!
2. USPS Delivery < Baby Delivery
I love Alexandra’s response here. It’s a three-pronged approach:
- I don’t want to have a baby right now and find your comment laughable.
- I’m actually hoping for the opposite of a baby, as I plan to dedicate the next several years of my life to medical school.
- I’m now spelling out what USPS means.
3. Napping Hierarchy
Ohhh, the unladylike things I want to say to Stana but won’t because my mother occasionally reads this blog. I will say this, though: What kind of monster “ranks” napping? “Your nap wasn’t as pleasant as my nap! Your nap was like falling asleep on a dirty hammock made of rusty twine and my nap was like falling asleep on a fluffy cloud over the ocean! Baby Naps Reprazent!”
As long as you’re not napping with a rake, a hornet’s nest or an open bag of tacks, who gives a shit? It’s probably pretty relaxing.
Redneck TV bloopers are better than normal bloopers. Hope this makes you chuckle.
Wait for the dog at 2:20.
Chris from New York likes to meet new people. Random street signs found around the city.
Watch me burn.
Hahaha…what is this from??
Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, has released its first ad to air in South Carolina - narrated by Jon Lithgow, the ad goes after Mitt “The Ripper” Romney. And of course, there’s a press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC Releases First Ad, Begins To Regret Length Of Name
AMERICA – The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC released its first TV ad today, in advance of South Carolina’s upcoming unnamed GOP Primary. The ad, which takes an objective look at Mitt Romney’s private sector experience, is entitled “Attack In B Minor For Strings.”
“Mitt Romney claims to be pro-corporations,” said Jon Stewart, President of The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC. “But would you let him date your daughter’s corporation? Americans have been clamoring for a comprehensive study of this crucial issue, so we splurged for the full sixty-second commercial. We think South Carolinians will agree – they deserve a leader who shares their state’s values, and perhaps even their state’s initials.”
The new spot begins airing today in a major ad buy that will blanket South Carolina from Charleston all the way to North Charleston. Those of you with some free AOL hours left can view the ad here.
The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC, officially known as Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, is an independent, expenditure-only committee that’s been proudly serving the community since late Thursday.

It seems everything Colbert does is pure unadulterated genius.
Nothing like a video that openly suggests Mitt Romney is a serial killer.
Everything about this is perfect.
