mr brightside

Having just returned from a pretty fantastic wedding weekend Coda's world view is finally brightening, so I thought I would celebrate by passing along some highly educational hilarity.

We'll start with international relations. Because it's important to know your dictators (I mean, can you imagine how awkward it would be trying to strike up a conversation with Muammar Gaddafi about how much better elevators have made city life?), check out Kim Jong-Il Looking at Things.

The title pretty much says it all, yet for some reason I still find myself laughing at pictures of him examining vodka and what appear to be lady's shoes. Maybe it's because he really does look like that puppet from Team America.

Now, Tex and I love us some reading, which is probably why we spend so much of our time enraptured by Better Book Titles.

Better Book Titles renames literary pieces of all different genres to give those who haven't read a specific work a better idea of what they're in for, and to give those who have read it a good laugh. Some of my personal favorites are The Handmaid's Tale, True Blood (cause, actually, vampires are dead, not sexy), blink, and Robinson Crusoe. Naturally, the official TCKiT favorite is Age of Innocence.

Now that you've broken a mental sweat let the guys from Two Scoops. Get Huge. give you tips on how to break a physical one.

This (mostly) tongue-in-cheek blog is about protein, getting huge, weight lifting, getting huge, and hating on Planet Fitness. But don't make the mistake of thinking you know them already, reserve judgement until you read about their festive Halloween treats; benefit from their in-depth comparison of 5 Hour Energy and Provita Protein; find out what your protein powder says about you; and learn more than you ever thought possible about hobo's fightin' words. Just think, you haven't even touched their material on biceps yet.

You're welcome.

heart cooks brain

Well kids, Coda's had a crap couple of weeks but that doesn't mean I have to (continue to) be derelict in my duties to all of you. With that in mind I'd like to present you with a post that's three parts hilarity, one part rage and disappointment (much like life).

First up is Hipster Hitler.

Assuming you have a somewhat irreverent sense of humor, and if you enjoy this blog that's a pretty good assumption, you'll be able to appreciate Hipster Hitler for what it is: a stroke of brilliance. Like The Producers for the webcomic-reading, hipster-hating set. From the punny tshirts and recasting of Stalin as a frat boy and Mussolini as a guido, to Hitler as the mightiest hipster of all time, it's a can't miss.

Next we'll delve into the philosophical with the brilliant existential experiment Garfield Minus Garfield.

Turns out if you take Garfield out of his own comics all you have left is Jon. A bleakly hilarious Jon.

Continuing on our philosophical adventure, we arrive at Nietzsche Family Circus.

The potential here was endless: randomly pair a Nietzsche quotation with a Family Circus panel and enjoy the unexpected dichotomy. Not only does it live up to its potential, but two also fit surprisingly well; and it definitely makes the sanctimonious adventures of the Family Circus more bearable.

Now I'm gonna send you off with a smidge of rage, because, you know, life. So without further ado, enjoy Tea Party Jesus.

Pictures of Jesus Christ have been adorned with speech bubbles featuring some of the more horrendous things our evangelical politicians and pundits have been saying lately. If you're curious about who the original speaker was just click on the picture and you'll be linked to the news story the quotation came from.

In case you wondered, it's stuff like this that has the Team America theme song running through my head virtually every second of every day
