I had planned on taking a week off from the Friday Funny post; it seems like most of what I’ve been posting recently have been either Movie Mondays for Friday Funnies. But, I just couldn’t pass this one up.
I’m a giant nerd. If you haven’t figured that out yet, then you’re not one of the six people who regularly read my blog (that number may have dwindled to two or three during my hiatus, I’m not sure). I grew up on Star Trek: The Next Generation. The show will forever hold a special place in my heart, as those characters took me through my middle school and high school years. The show was something that my mother and I could have serious discussions about and helped strengthen our relationship during those oh-so-tumultuous teenage years.
This isn’t a recut or a mashup, it’s simply a scene from one of the shows with a laugh track added in. There are plenty of awkward humorous moments in the show, and this one is no exception. The laugh track works pretty well, I think. The “credits” set to the theme from Parks & Recreation just make it all the better. And to prove my nerddom, this is from the final episode of the series, “All Good Things…” Enjoy, and happy Friday.
Another excellent autotuning job by the Gregory Brothers. Here they turn their talents on the most ridiculous pre-race prayer of all time. Boogity, boogity, boogity, Amen.
Today’s funny comes by way of my former law school roommate, Mr. Tuegel. If you’re a fan of Arrested Development and have seen the recent HBO series Game of Thrones, then you’ll enjoy this too. It’s Arrested Westeros – a site that mashes Game of Thrones images with quotes from Arrested Development with hilarious effect. While I haven’t seen the Game of Thrones series, I’m reading the books so I understand the context. At any rate, it’s incredibly funny and the images and quotes fit quite well. Enjoy!
I couldn’t resist, I have to post this one too.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know about HBO’s epic new series, Game of Thrones. If you have been living under a rock, and therefore haven’t heard of Game of Thrones, you really should move. Living under a rock really can’t be comfortable.
Though I haven’t actually seen the show (I don’t have HBO), I’m familiar with the story. I’m currently reading George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, upon which the HBO series is based. I’m 3/4 through the second book in the series. It’s a fantastic read, although quite… brutal. It’s definitely not one of those The Good Guys Prevail and Everyone’s Happy sort of series, but it’s compelling nonetheless.
This video is a humorous remix of the scene where Tyrion slaps the insufferable Prince Joffrey, all set to Guile’s theme. Guile’s theme goes with everything. It tickled my funny bone, even though it’s a little too long. Enjoy.

Today’s Friday Funny comes via Hacked IRL. For some reason, the test taking funnies always crack me up, and this one is no exception. Click on the image for the original post. Happy Friday everyone!

Today is Thanksgiving, tomorrow is Friday. Since it’s late already and I’m full of tryptophan, I’m going to switch the days and do Friday Funny today and tomorrow will be my Thanksgiving post. I hope you enjoy it.
In keeping with the apparent theme of the week, this Friday Funny comes from The West Wing. Ainsley Hayes (played by Emily Proctor) is the Republican who beats Sam Seaborn up on Capitol Beat (if I could find that scene, I’d post it) and is then hired by the White House. This is the scene where Leo offers her a job in the White House Counsel’s Office. It’s a pretty good indication of the character. She made several appearances over a couple of seasons before disappearing until the very last episode or two, and each episode in which she appeared was thoroughly entertaining. Enjoy.
My favorite exchange:
Ainsley: Well then, if you’ll permit me, why was I summoned?
Leo: You have an interesting conversational style, you know that?
Ainsley: It’s a nervous… condition.
Leo: I used to have a nervous condition.
Ainsley: How did yours manifest itself?
Leo: I drank a lot of scotch.
Ainsley: I get sick when I drink too much.
Leo: I get drunk when I drink too much.
