The Best (or Worst), Funniest (or Stupidest) Thing You’ll See All Day (or Year) (or Ever) (I Love Parentheses)

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Here at The Buzz, I usually give you a sure thing. Whether it be gloriously screaming goats, great bad lip reading or some damn fine pole dancing, I think it’s safe to say I haven’t yet steered you wrong.But this one can go either way.It’s probably loosely based on your level of childishness.But don’t feel bad if you think you are mature and classy, but end up laughing your posterior off at this.(I used the word posterior instead of ass because it’s what I envision snooty people who think they’re mature and classy would say.)Personally, I think if you don’t laugh, you’re simply unpatriotic.Now, if you watch this and like it, you’re welcome, I’ve done it again. If you hate it, blame Scott. He found it.Yes, it’s stupid. And yes, people have to clean up the mess. But it can still be funny.Or maybe it can’t be.It’s a polarizing issue. You either love it or hate it.Like President Obama.Or Snuggies.Fondue.Rihanna’s gigantic forehead.So go ahead and watch it. Laugh. Or don’t.But if you don’t, the terrorists have won.(Too soon?)last_img read more
