It’s Friday, So Let’s Lighten Up (And Waste Some Time) With These Four Videos

Do you like to laugh? Since you’re here, you’re probably a fan of TheBlaze so it’s likely you’ve also seen Glenn Beck in one of his many goatee-suspender-walking stick-pocket watch outfits. So of course you like to laugh. You couldn’t be in a better place because I’ve hand picked four videos from across the Web universe to help you have a chuckle, alleviate some tension, and waste some of your employer’s valuable time. Mr. and Mrs. America, you’re welcome.

1) If you’re not familiar with the Onion, you should be, because it’s where you’ll find some of the most original and inspired looks at American life, and how it’s reported. It’s arguably the best fake news you’ll find outside the pages of The New York Times. In this clip, they take a look at surveys, and the answer the pressing question of what we all want out of life.

2) Race is a touchy subject here in America, so I thought it only appropriate that we look at a video about actually touching a specific race, especially its hair. I always love it when someone has the courage to address a sensitive subject, and does so in a way that disarms that sensitivity through comedy. Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell is doing that very thing on a nightly basis, and the clip below is one of their best.

3) There’s been so much talk about the “Greatest Generation” and the “Baby Boomers,” but what about the new kids on the block? And Im not talking about that band either. I’m talking about the “Millennials?” We know they’ve had some problems getting their act together, and this College Humor clip finally gives them an opportunity to apologize. Sort of.

4) And speaking of taking responsibility, let’s wrap things up with this offering from Funny or Die. What better way to get set for the weekend than knowing that no matter what you’ve done (or haven’t done), it’s not your fault. It’s that darned Samuel L. Jackson!
