Contrary to the name, they're actually kinda hard to find unless you know exactly which one you're looking for. I ask this question because I recently re-discovered this old classic viral video of "Star Wars Kid".

I'm sure a lot of you have seen it before, but for those who haven't, it's a 2002 video of a high school kid in Canada who's pretending to be in a lightsaber duel using a golf ball retriever. He never intended it to be seen by anyone else, but after some classmates discovered it, one of them uploaded it to the internet. The rest is history. :)

Know of any other good ones?

A much better version of this is the one where somebody put in lightsaber effects:

So many categories to choose from. Personally nothing makes me laugh like Guilty Dogs/ dog shaming. Or stuff like this:



What you are talking about would maybe be things like Kung Fu Grandpa where the guy was just practicing in a Food Lion parking lot and someone taped him.

That is awesome. I have never seen either. That dude moves around pretty good for a big guy.

"What ever happened to the Star Wars Kid?" -poster #1

"He grew up to be Rob Ford" -poster #2

That made me laugh.

For example, to embed this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj3iNxZ8Dww

Copy the part after the = sign (which is "lj3iNxZ8Dww") and insert it after "youtube= ".
Then put brackets [ ] around the entire thing. Voila!





BTW, I totally feel sorry for this girl. She's a cutie, but she got ridiculed mercilessly over this video.

I totally do not, did she not know that she would be asked questions in this competition?

Judge: What is your name?

South Carolina Girl: Names, as such, are not, per se, because...you know...most people have more than one name. Oprah doesn't, she only has one name, and her name is Oprah. There are other people with only one name, as such, like RuPaul. I also want to say that many Africans have only one name, as it were, and that's most unfortunate because...uh...it's easier to identify people if they have a first and a last name because not as many people will have the same name. I think it's important that we, you know, uh, educate Africa and all of those poorer countries on why it is good to have more than one name because that will make the world a better place!
