Click the pain away

Whenever the universe confounds me, I do what any sensible, adult, educated human being does. I watch a bunch of silly videos until I feel better. It's been another one of those weeks here at Casa Surrenders. So, let's go to the video tape! Well, actually it's online streaming video, but that just doesn't have the same ring to it.

1-900-OKFACE

Oh, lord. My apologies to my international friends, but I had to post it. I had to.

Motorized Barstool. No, Seriously.

If you could bottle Rachel's glee and sell it, I would be first in line.

Halle Does The Halle

Halle Berry dancing. That is all.

A Muppet And A Fat Guy

Click play. Die laughing. Click replay. Die laughing some more. Click replay again. You get the picture.

Eat Your Carrots

The skill and gusto with which Glenn Close stuffs carrots into her mouth is a truly, truly Oscar worthy.

OK, your turn. Share your guaranteed cheerer-upper videos below. Heavens knows, we could all use them.

lol - Rachel Maddow did the excited little clap. It's adorable.

I do that sometimes, but I never look so cute.

Ricky Gervais and Elmo....OH sweet Lord that was AWESOME!! I am laughing soo hard.

Thank you Ms. Snarker, thank you for making my day!

This Amp'd Mobile commercial usually does the trick.

And if that fails, Bizkit the sleep walking dog definitely makes me smile.

Shasta said...

I woke up feeling like it was going to be a terrible day and suddenly.... not so much! Hooray!

Bizkit the sleepwalking dog? I laughed til I cried, but oh the poor doggy! Banging into walls in his sleep? Eek!

A short and sweet classic. The Dramatic Chipmunk.

Except Rachel Maddow uses the word "nonplussed" incorrectly. Not to be a grammar whore, but I expected better from a Rhodes Scholar.

Don't worry, Rachel, I still love you.

Srankin said...

I think a video of you laughing at the muppet and a fat guy would make me feel better.

Women laughing always makes me feel better. :)

I'm also a bit gleeful because I think Ms. Maddow use 'nonplussed' incorrectly.

Oh Ms. Snarker,
