FunnyOrDie nails the media’s portrayal of black stereotypes with fake PR video

A new video from Funny or Die tackles this glaring lack of consciousness from the mainstream media and other organizations by imagining a special PR agency for black people, specifically for black people “gunned down or put on public trial.”

That’s where the fictional Real You PR comes to save the day, helping to choose the “best possible photo of you for the evening news broadcast.”  

It’s painfully true 

Haha, yeah….

So I decided my new life goal is to become a magical girl viking

Because I love metal. I love metal so much. It’s the music that calms me down the most and I fucking love metal heads. Everything about it is great.

I just also wish I could be super fucking cute while also being a metal head. I mean I do it anyway but imagine if I could do it BETTER. LIKE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! Be super brutal and badass but also super femme and adorable!!

I want to chug beer and smash it then explode into rainbow sparkles and bows and get a cute little outfit with a little skirt and a fur cloak and take my sparkly weapon and go cut off the head of a dragon and write it’s name on my face in it’s own blood and drink some more and giggle adorably and have a talking pet that instructs me and my comrades about our magical powers. That’s what I want out of my life.

Also I might have to draw more of these and by might I MEAN FUCKING YES

I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE!!!!

The latest addition the Archie McPhee Library is a sidesplittingly funny and tremendously educational book entitled Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-BS Guide to World Mythology [Buy on Amazon], written by Cory O’Brien. This hysterical book is a collection of some of the very best stories from O’Brien’s awesome Better Myths blog. O’Brien loves mythology. He’s an MFA writing program student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago who’s made a riotous art form out of retelling ancient tales in a candid, no-nonsense, conversational and sometimes quite shouty style.

O’Brien’s goal: To learn everything possible about myths, chop out the BS, and leave readers with an uncensored version of the tales.

O’Brien’s humorous yet insightful interpretations of ancient tales from all over the world read as though they’re being told to you over drinks by your best friend who happens to be immortal and, thanks to their inherent nosiness and an uncanny sense of good timing, has witnessed all sorts of truly, literally incredible events firsthand.

"All our lives, we’ve been fed watered-down, PC versions of the classic myths. In reality, mythology is more screwed up than a schizophrenic shaman doing hits of unidentified… wait, it all makes sense now. In Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes, Cory O’Brien, creator of Myths RETOLD!, sets the stories straight. These are rude, crude, totally sacred texts told the way they were meant to be told: loudly, and with lots of four-letter words.”

The table of contents alone is well worth the price of the book. Here are a few gems:

Cronus liked to eat babies.
Odin got construction discounts with bestiality.
Isis had bad taste in jewelry.
Ganesh was the very definition of an unplanned pregnancy.
And Abraham was totally cool about stabbing his kid in the face.
The Mayans have the most brutal Calendar.
The moon is made of meat.

As for the actual stories, here’s the very beginning of the myth of Persephone, entitled “Persephone Is the Mother of Invention…No, Wait…”:

So persephone is the daughter of this chick Demeter
who is the goddess of like fertility and crops and whatnot
and she is also incredibly hot
so hot, in fact
that hades down in the underworld (which is also called hades actually)
looks up one day and sees her and goes DAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAA
AAAAA
AAAA
MN
I gotta get me some of that
so he just pops on up to the world in his black chariot of ultimate wretchedness
and he says hey little girl do you want to come to hell
and she probably would have said no only he kidnapped her
basically hades is the ultimate ladies’ man…

And this is the beginning of a Native American myth entitled “Rabbit Takes Summer Fun to the Next Level”:

See, once upon a time the sun used to be even more of a bastard than it is now.
It would take a flying leap off the horizon in the morning
and then spend the rest of the day
doing flaming kickflips of disaster off the clouds.
But one day
Rabbit decides he has had enough of this nonsense.
He is trying to get his chill on
in the shade of a shady oak tree
but the sun is just pretty much PRYING THE SHADOWS STRAIGHT OFF HIM
and then BAKING THE CANCER INTO HIS SKIN
Anyway, Rabbit is not about to take guff
from some puffed-up ball of superheated hases
so he grabs his gun
and he starts walking…

There are so many myths from so many different cultures contained within this book that you’re guaranteed to read stories about mythological figures you’ve never heard of before. Also, based on how much this book makes us laugh out loud, we advise that it’s probably not the best choice to bring along and read during solemn occasions.

We’re also willing to guess that more than a few head librarians have soundproofed rooms just for people who want to read Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes at the library.

This… 1000 times this.

Agreed.

Gaming is about having fun and it gets better with the more people you share it with. Phenomenal advise.

OH MY FUCKING… wait, back waaay waaaaaay up. That part where the anon gamer says they have played games all their life and received shit for it (and hates “the newcomers”).

Guess what asshat, that’s how WE FEEL. I’ve been playing games since I was basically a baby. I played my first game on a fucking Atari. Not a vintage Atari, back when Atari (and Commodore) was ALL WE HAD. Then we got an NES for xmas… etc and so on.

I’m almost 33 now and have been a gamer since I was a damn toddler, and now I see other gamer women, the same as me, my same age, receiving death threats from NEW COMERS who are HALF OUR AGE.

Get the fuck off at the next fucking stop, you pathetic worm.

YES. THIS. GOD. I’ve been gaming since the mid-80s, when we got our first Texas Instruments box. I’m 32 and the asshats who are complaining that chicks are ruining games are almost young enough to be my kids. YOU ASSHOLE KIDS GET OFF MY LAWN.

OKAY. OKAY. WHAT THE UNHOLY HELL. OH GOD I’M SO MAD. HANG ON LOOK, KEEP READING THIS AND I PROMISE I’LL BE MORE CALM.

In 2012, a 17-year-old boy named T.J. Lane killed three fellow classmates in a school shooting, and was sentenced to life in jail. But wait, that’s not the worst part. This kid pulled a few nasty stunts to really show how much of a pathetic monstrosity he is. In the courtroom during his trial, he took off his more formal clothing to reveal a white undershirt with the word “KILLER” crudely written on it. He was smiling and laughing while the case progressed through the day. And to top it off, when he was finally sentenced [to life in prison], he turned to the families of the victims he killed, and said, “This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F—- all of you,” before flicking them off. As if this sick waste of human life couldn’t get any more disgusting.

AND NOW, FOR THE DAMN KICKER: This vile animal has somehow managed to fucking escape prison with a fellow inmate, and is currently on the run. I urge any and all of you to spread this info around and be fully aware of the tragedy this vermin has caused. He must be found and apprehended as soon as possible, and if I’ve made anyone more aware, I’ve helped this cause.

I WANT HIM OFF THE STREETS AND AWAY FROM EVERY OTHER HUMAN BEING. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW INFURIATED I AM. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY OBSCENE LANGUAGE BUT I’M PISSED OFF AT THE AMERICAN JUSTICE SYSTEM AND THIS IS ONLY ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN.

UPDATE: As of 1:20am local time on Friday morning, T.J. Lane was recaptured near the correctional institute. His two fellow escaped inmates were captured soon after. I’m still slightly confused as to how any of this happened (the link says they built a makeshift ladder, but doesn’t give info on how they managed to avoid being caught), but I am SO relieved that all three inmates that escaped are back behind bars.

The security guards knew about the escape for three days before it happened and did nothing. That’s how they escaped.
And guess what. This white kid happens to still be alive. Escaped from jail, found with a weapon, and is still alive and completely unharmed by the police.

So, just the other day, I’m driving around, and I decide I want to hear “Silent Girl” by Red State Soundsystem. (Which, BTW, I again highly recommend.)

Instead, Siri throws me “Valley Girl”. I’m about to switch it off, and then decide “Y’know what, I haven’t really sat down to LISTEN to Zappa in a while. I should fix that.” Dang, that’s some fine basswork on that song. 

(Related note : I desperately need a karaoke version of “I’m the Slime”. DESPERATELY.)

Ugh! Like, gag me with a spoon!!
