First off, I’d like to say sorry for not posting the last few days, I’ve had my full focus on the ACT.
On that sad note, I’d like to review a hilarious cartoonist who I just now discovered. You see, I was with my family (a couple hours after the ACT) at an extremely cheap book sale at a public library. My dad saw the Gary Larson books and decided that we MUST buy them. Leaving the book store $1.50 poorer, I pulled one of the books out of the bag and started reading. Immediately I was hooked. 30 minutes later, I found myself flinching because my cheeks hurt from laughing.
What I like about Larson
Gary Larson is a cartoonist, but not just so, he is one with a twisted mind and a scientific brain. While I’m unaware of Larson’s religious background, I do know that he does a ton of making fun of evolutionary theory in his work. Often including a pun or three, each cartoon fills my eyes to the brim with laughter. Upon doing a quick search for Gary Larson on Google, I found the following cartoon.
This cartoon, featuring a couple of cows living in a furnished home, is funny because they have tons of appliances which obviously require the use of thumbs. These cows are a great example of Gary’s humor, which often includes animals and funny things about them.
Is Gary Appropriate?
None of his cartoons, out of the hundreds I’ve read, contain anything rated over PG. He doesn’t use bad language, but he occasionally makes slightly violent references, funny ways people can get hurt, and jokes about taking vacations to the underworld. These are all in good taste though, as they are always meant to be funny rather than offensive, and are never overly brutal. Compared to most cartoonists, Gary is a pretty appropriate dude. Again, these are only out of the hundreds I’ve read, so if you find anything please do not waste your money on a torch, and especially not a pitchfork (those are expensive these days.)

This is a funny video with the premise of finding the “perfect” small group leader for a church youth group. The people searching for the leader go through a ton of famous Bible characters and in the process decide that none of them are right for their group due to various small reasons (murder, causing plagues, and denying Jesus three times.) The characters are basically funny versions of their respective Bible people, and make this video awesome.
The video teaches us that while we might feel unworthy to serve God because of our history or qualifications, we must remember that even the heroes of the Bible had major flaws and mess-ups yet God still let them do great things. In the end of the video, a regular guy just like us was chosen to be the small group leader. As long as you let God use you, he will allow you to do great things.
One very famous christian funny group is Skit Guys. They write all sorts of plays and make humorous videos. I was searching the most popular comedy videos at Godtube and this one caught my eye. It is probably one of the most disturbing Christian videos I’ve seen because it almost hints at cannibalism, but this sort of humor isn’t necessarily considered dirty. That being said, this video was obviously made for teens based on the humor used, but can be enjoyed by all ages.
This video portrays the very vital lesson that there is a ton of things to be thankful for in life. While most people would post something like this on Thanksgiving, I think it is important to be thankful all year round. The obvious humor in this clip helps to play off the message, and makes it stick in your mind for longer than one dinner. Please comment and/or re-blog this post and tell me what you think of the video and being thankful.
Still not good at signing off despite this being about the 20th post,
Most people would say it is weird to sit there singing along to the whine of a vacuum. My friends aren’t most people…
Obviously, you shouldn’t duet with a vacuum if you are tone deaf!

Today I found out that in a school of 2000+ students, there are only 18 students taking AP Physics, and half of that taking the harder version, AP Physics C (which I’m in.) The teacher assigned us two large text books. One of them is for easy reading and the other can be used for weightlifting.
