“Maybe we can lose these guys tailing us at the airport, there’s so much security there, they can’t make a scene without getting arrested.” “That’s brilliant! We’ll hide in plane sight!” Reme...

The Science School Bus, using super-science to bring students into strange realms so as to teach them how magic works. Why call it “sex lube” when you can call it “oil du soiree”? The borde...

“Relax,” he told her, as if that wasn’t the hardest thing to do in the entire universe. If they’re going to keep making Jurassic Park movies, not because the sequels have been good but becaus...

Bands shouldn’t have a “Final Tour”, they should be honest and call it the “Pre-Reunion Tour”. Eventually their individual needs for attention or money will overwhelm their hatred for each othe...

A movie about a serial killer whose calling card is a box of Milano cookies called PEPPERIDGE FARMS REMEMBERS WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. When the suits aren’t taking a cut, they tell artists t...

If I had any musical talent, I’d craft an summer rock anthem called “I’m Handsome For A Thick Boy”, not only for all the other chonky dudes to gain confidence, but for myself, since it’d be my ...

It turned out that Carmen Sandiego was in San Diego the whole time. Yeah. Reverse psychology is a key weapon for international thieves, apparently. You don’t get many opportunities to retort ...

You have completed the 101 class, watching Barbie and Oppenheimer as a double feature, “Barbenheimer”. Good. Now onto the advanced lesson, watch Frankenhooker and Toxic Avenger back to back or,...

If you ever have the opportunity to respond condescendingly to The Pringles Guy, please start your retort with the words “My brother in crisps”. Thank you. A parody of “Dancing In The Moonlig...

How about a law where no one can get another yacht until they’ve entirely finished eating their first one? Sometimes life feels like a collections of times they didn’t say “yes” because you t...

The opposite of story is not silence. The opposite of story is spectacle. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes a mix of the two opposites is a glorious thing, but always story first and spectacle seco...

Nearly any advertising campaign could use the slogan: THE PAST OF THE FUTURE IS NOW. A Neil Young parody about awful chain bar food called “Buffalo wildwings again”. Then there was, of cour...
