The past, the present and the future walked into a bar.

It was tense. I adore "X walked into a bar" jokes. Lay some on me.

Help Me Counter a Prank

I have to give a presentation to about 15 new hires tomorrow sometime around 10am. The start time is always variable by about 15 mins. I do this all the time and it is quite a fun presentation. The orientation at my company is super goofy and fun and the person coordinating it is totally down for some fun. So much so that my coworker Kim has pulled HR into a ongoing prank war that Kim and I are in. I have no idea what Kim is going to pull but something is going to go down. She already roped in every single one of them to come find me and make me do ridiculous things as part of the scavenger hunt. I need a way to get all these people involved and turn it into complete laughter, embarrassment, and glee for everyone. [more inside]

My memory fails me

I'm trying to remember a web-video series that was mentioned on the blue a couple of times in the last year or two. All I can remember is that they were hosted by a woman (maybe light brown/blond hair...?) who was giving a funny/feminist take on various things in pop culture. Does that ring a bell with anyone? I think maybe one of the topics she talked about was yogurt commercials aimed at women. I know, not much to go on!

Where can I find a funny picture that was circulated around the Internet a few months ago (digg, reddit, etc.)?

Where can I find a funny picture that was circulated around the Internet a few months ago (digg, reddit, etc.)? The picture shows a closed toll gate with car tracks on one side of the gate where people had merely gone around it rather than paying the toll. That's my memory of it, at least.

How can I be funny again?

I used to be funny, and now I'm not. Not rip-roaringly, get-your-own-sitcom funny, but enough to get my girlfriend and friends to regularly smile and chuckle. How do I get funny again?
