According to the Internet, bayonets, horses, mimicking beluga whales still can’t outdo parodies of “Gangnam Style” and “Call Me Maybe.” While you take that in, The 5 Most Intentionally Funny Videos This Week will make up for it.
1. Comedy Central’s Key & Peele accurately revisited the myth of the retired veteran who vowed never to kill again and why, in reality, he shouldn’t.
2. Thing X just launched. What’s Thing X? Well, it’s sort of beyond easy description, but it did ask Paul F. Tompkins a series of really funny questions.
3. Political analysis more often than not is missing some wisecracking salt of the earth flavor to it. Luckily, Kyle Kinane has filled that niche with his political ad takedown web series 30 Seconds Over Washington.
4. Don Rickles continued to amaze as much as ever as Mr. Warmth made his latest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
5. Dave Hill made a very legitimate bid, in my opinion, to moderate the next major televised debate, whether it be a presidential one or one between pundits or nerds, when he moderated a debate on his Official Comedy web series Swing Voter with a Fuck/Marry/Kill question.
