Cute Viral Video Features Violent Fatalities
Anyone familiar with the Darwin Awards has laughed at people dying in ridiculous, unfortunate ways, but have you seen it animated and soundtracked in the super-cute style of a domestic home goods commercial? “Dumb Ways To Die” made me LOL at people suffering electrocution-by-toaster, head-removal by bear, and body-flattening by oncoming train. I think this 3-minute ditty could be shortened to 2 minutes, but I was surprised by how amusing it was to watch a stick figure meet a bloody demise.
Which makes me think, what am I laughing about exactly? A friend of mine who also appreciates a darkly comic joke used to end our emails with non-sequitur, entirely jocular requests for me to violently mutilate him in very specifically described ways. And this was a treasured, ongoing joke in our friendship! Are we sick people? Thanks for making me introspective about violence and death, Cute Viral Video.
Describe for us the threesome with your OKCupid hookup.

If this doesn’t become the biggest video on the Internet, then I have no faith left in humanity.

I’m about to finish up my sophomore fall of college, and friends from home are getting married and having babies and sufficiently freaking me out.
He was a perfect date. I later got drunk and hacked his phone (who uses their birth year for a password? It was 1986, by the way #teamcougar). What I found was a text to a Kristina explaining his aforementioned sex dream he’d had about her while sleeping next to me in a luxurious hotel bed.
