CollegeHumor has a wide range of topics that they cover in the forms of articles, comics, and videos. They have lists and features on movies and music, for example, as well as a shop where you can buy their merchandise. CollegeHumor is most known for is its original videos, some of the series include Badman and Hot Date. You can find most of them on their main YouTube channel, or on their second channel, CH2. They can have NSFW content at times, so they’re not really a site you’d want to browse when you’re at work, not that you would be surfing the Internet at work. Who does that?

1. Tune To A Sport You've Never Been Interested Before And Make Fun Of It
The Olympics come around every four years and based on the types of sports involved, you kind of understand why. From your outsider perspective they all seem so dumb. You don't really care about them, and you certainly don't get why someone would devote their entire life to getting good at something this pointless. Still, it's on and you're too lazy to think of something else to do with your time. You sit down
2. Become Slowly Entranced
What the fuck? You look at the clock and it turns out you've been watching for over an hour? How did that happen? In the blink of an eye you've gone from ironically detached to completely enthralled. You don't really know what's going on, and you can't say really say that you're enjoying yourself. That said, you can't bring yourself to turn away so you keep watching for reasons that you can't explain.
3. Slowly Start To Understand The Rules
As you remain glued to your television, you begin to pick up the rules by sheer osmosis. The strange terms that were once foreign to you start to make a little more sense. You're still not entirely sure what's going on but you feel like you get the gist of what's going on.....at least that's how it is at first. It's not long before something clicks and....
4. Suddenly You Become An Expert
It all makes sense now. A couple hours as a spectator and you suddenly know everything there is to know about this sport. You start questioning calls and yelling at your televisions because you know way better than these trained referees and Olympic level athletes. If only you had been the coach, you could have lead this team to the gold with ease, but unfortunately, you were only marginally aware of this sport's existence until a few hours ago.
5. Get WAY Too Invested
Once you know what's going on, there's no turning back. You're in it now. You watch your screen with an intensity and passion, the likes of which you've never felt before. You root for your team, and root for them hard. Their failure is your failure. Their triumphs are your triumphs. You've literally never cared about anything as much as you do this event right now. You cancel your weekend plans because you need to be awake for the Saturday 4am live gold medal match. There is no way your devoted ass would dare watch this pre-recorded. This is your life now.
6. Stop Watching It And Don't Think About It Again For 4 Years
Okay, that was fun. Turn off the television and go about your merry way. Completely forget about the sport you just watched until the next Olympics because no matter how engaging they are, a lot of these events are dumb. Like we said, there's a reason the games only come around once every four years.

The Botnik Predictive Writer is a web app that lets you load in a large volume of content (for example, every Seinfeld script ever written) and then, by pointing and clicking on a series of generated words, you can make a TOTALLY FRESH AND NEW version of the source materal (that rarely makes sense but is always hilarious).
By this point, I'm sure most of you have seen some of the more popular output to come from Botnik, such some incredible new chapters of Harry Potter:
Or maybe this series of fake Yelp reviews for famous landmarks:
Reading this stuff got me thinking, I wonder what would happen if I loaded in a ton of comic scripts that I've made for CollegeHumor, and then used Botnik to generate a totally new script, which I would then have to draw!
It sounded like a really fun experiment, so I started by generating a title:
Okay, honestly, it's a little weird, but to be fair I AM curious as to why some of my friend would be staring at a toilet so this title would DEFINITELY get a click from me.
I then proceded to generate both an action and a single line of dialog for each panel. Once all was said and done, I formatted everything and... this... this is the script I ended up with:
To be honest, it reads like either the fever dream of a dying man or the leaked script for the next season of Twin Peaks. It doesn't really fit my usual comic critera of being relatable or light-hearted or... not... incredibly disturbing and unsettling.
BUT I made a promise from the outset, so I got right to work making this thing a reality, and THIS is the final product:
I don't know if I can ever truly atone for my sins, but I will spend the rest of my days on this earth in the attempt.
So you're telling me that the poll my mom made saying I'm the sweetest handsomest boy in the whole wide world... was wrong?
Does the fact that Chloe Kim and Red Gerard, both insanely cool and funny 17 year olds, being Olympic Gold Medalists make you feel a little bad about yourself?
Well don't worry, because we here at CollegeHumor want to remind you that they are the outliers and most 17 year olds are pieces of shit whose resumes are a lot less impressive.
Believe it or not, but CollegeHumor power couple Emily Axford and Brian Murphy have gone and written a relationship advice book - entitled HEY, U UP? (For a Serious Relationship): How to Turn Your Booty Call into Your Emergency Contact. And if anyone at CollegeHumor knows a thing about love, relationships, and being extremely funny, it's these two - they started off as co-workers, then became friends, then fell in love, then got married, then wrote and starred in a sketch show about love & relationships (based on their web series Hot Date), and now they've written a book (also they started a podcast alongside Caldwell Tanner about nerdy literature somewhere in there - check it out, it's extremely good).
And yes, in case you weren't aware (and according to some previous Youtube comments, many weren't) - MURPH AND EMILY ARE ACTUALLY MARRIED IN REAL LIFE.
They are for real in love, legally bound to one another, and creating the most magical thing two people in love can make together - entertainment.
And not only that, but the book is legitimately hilarious and includes some nuggets of genuinely good advice (and I'm not just saying that because Murph gave me my start here). Don't believe me? Check out this sample page - a flowchart telling you whether you're ready to move in with your significant other. It's brutally honest and completely correct.
Now I know what you're thinking - you're asking yourself whether you really NEED a book of relationship advice. Well the hard truth is - OF COURSE YOU DO. No matter who you are or what your relationship status is, everyone could use a refresher on the ways of love.
- Single? Well you probably want to BE in a relationship soon, and this book can help you get there - and make it work, once you find someone who's as into Naruto fanfic as you are.
- In a relationship that you want to take to the next level? This is a major stumbling block for a lot of relationships - having a funny, easy-to-read guide could help you out a bit.
- In a fulfilling, mutually-loving relationship with a significant other that is just absolutely perfect and issue-free? ...well, GOOD FOR YOU. Maybe you can buy a copy for a friend or relative who's a little less lucky in love, or just buy a copy for yourself to chuckle at BECAUSE YOUR LIFE IS JUST SOOOOOOO PERFECT.
- Not really interested in improving your romantic pursuits but ARE a huge fan of Murph and Emily and know that everything they make is hilarious and wonderful and know you'd be missing out if you didn't get this? Hey bud, same.
So really, no matter WHO you are, you don't really have any excuse to not get this book. And I say this as someone who hasn't had the patience or attention to read ANY book since Harry Potter.
Still not convinced? Well...I don't really have any arguments left, except for some videos that prove that Emily & Murph (or "Eurph" / "Memily", depending on which couple name you find less upsetting) are funny, witty, insightful, and know a thing or two about the world of love:
So BUY THEIR BOOK - it's good and you'll feel slightly better about yourself for buying something other than Overwatch loot boxes today.
Your phone is KILLING you. Also the large wound in your side but mostly your phone!
In recent months, many have been re-examining the way we as a society have exiled odious members of Hollywood's elite like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, while Woody Allen has found continual acceptance and celebration - despite having (allegedly) molested his daughter Dylan Farrow in 1994, when she was only seven years old. The evidence that Allen is guilty of this crime is overwhelming and his defenders are dwindling by the day - more and more actors are publicly claiming regret at having participated at all in Allen's films and declaring they'll never work with him again. But in all of this, it's important that we keep in mind who Allen's larger victim was - dudes who want to be able to say Annie Hall is their favorite romantic comedy in online dating profiles.
Woody Allen's sick and monstrous actions have truly taken an enormous toll on us - guys who like saying Annie Hall is the best romcom, since it sounds more cerebral than stuff like Pretty Woman as it deals with heavy themes like belief, death, melancholy, and existentialism, which we assume will impress women. And the fact it features a protagonist who is neurotic, anxious, and feeble-looking doesn't hurt. What other movie are we supposed to put in dating bios that indicate we're the same kind of anemic-looking intellectual deserving of gorgeous women with quirky fashion senses? I'm sorry, but Love Actually just won't cut it.
Really, the entire oeuvre of Allen's work is now apparently unusable in dating profiles - even mature, more artistic gems like Manhattan, which is a lot like Annie Hall, except smarter (it's filmed in black & white), and was usually a pretty solid second option for dating profiles if you felt like Annie Hall was too cliche of an answer. But now apparently the plotline where Woody Allen's character is dating a high schooler is "weird" and "a clear, explicit confession by a pedophile so confident and narcissistic that he felt like he could work his perversions into the actual plotlines of his movies and face no consequences." But what about the score George Gershwin? So classy!
Sure - in watching and celebrating Allen's old work, we are complicit in normalizing him and his grotesque behavior (and perhaps subconsciously casting doubt on the allegations by Dylan Farrow - after all, if we TRULY believed Allen was a child molestor, how could we stand to watch his films, nearly all of which serve as vehicles for him playing a thinly-veiled version of himself?), but think of the consequences of saying his lifetime of work is no longer socially acceptable - I'll have to find romantic comedies not about neurotic, physically-unimposing cowards obsessed with sex that beautiful women throw themselves at (which is literally the only kind of protagonist I can find compelling, for some reason). Is that a world we want to live in?
So while my heart goes out to Dylan Farrow, we shouldn't let the horrific event she survived at the hands of her father ruin the dating profiles of men everywhere who want to ignore all of that and go on liking Annie Hall, right? Right.
1. Feel it coming on
Oh shit. You don't know how you know, but something in your body tells you you're about to be sick, and you're not happy about it. You do everything you can to ward it off. Tea, OJ, -quils both Day and Ny: you drink them all in hopes that they can prevent your stupid body from crapping out on you. Spoiler alert: they can't. That weird little tingle in your body doesn't lie and you're about to feel very bad. There is no fighting it.
2. Try to deny it
You might not be able to fight it, but you're sure gonna try to deny it. Sure, you feel like death but when have you ever felt good? Yes, your nose is runny, but that could just allergies and......okay, you have diarrhea, but it's not explosive. You can totally make it through the day! You put on your shoes and make your way out the front door, convinced you can beat this thing. Then you immediately barf in your front hall and have no choice but to accept the truth.
3. Reluctantly accept your fate
You call your work and tell them you're sick, and some reason you start to feel bad. You ARE sick, but for some reason you feel like you're lying. You play up your illness to make sure that everyone around you knows that this is not you being lazy. You really need to recover. You really don't want to take this sick day....or at least you didn't until you sat down and turned on the TV.
4. Try to make the most of it
Maybe sick days don't have to be a bad thing! I mean, they were awesome when you were a kid. You got to skip school and your mom waited on you hand and foot. Why does it have to be bad now that you're an adult? You put your feet up, grab some gross food because nothing counts when your sick, and look forward to a day of rest and relaxation. This is going to be great.
5. Get bored as hell
Oh wait, no it's not. Remember how being sick kinda ruled? Well, it turns out that having a mom to wait on you was a HUGE part of that. When you're grown up and have to take care of yourself, being sick is basically just sitting there feeling slightly less comfortable than you normally do. Television is nice for the first hour or so, but after that it starts to somehow feel more tedious than just staring at the ceiling. You feel like shit, but more than anything you feel bored. You want to rest up so you can get better and return to your old life, but resting is ironically somehow more stressful than the alternative.
6. Return to your life, feeling like you need a day off
After you finally get better, it's time to get back into the swing of things. You've wanted things to return to normal for the entire time you were out sick, and now you've finally got your wish. You wake up, get dressed, and head into work.....and boy does it suck. That day off really fucked with you. You've only been gone a brief while, but your normal daily return feels suddenly taxing in comparison to the day you spent recovering. You briefly contemplate calling in sick again, but fight the urge. As you trudge through the rest of your day you start to feel like you didn't appreciate your day off like you should have.
Everyone should have guns. That's right. EVERYONE.

1. The Way-Too-Affectionate Lovers
Love is a beautiful thing....in theory. Watching it play out in front of you is a completely different matter. Unfortunately, everyone has at least one couple in their life that thinks that just because they have sex behind closed doors, that gives them the right to conduct their foreplay in public where everyone can see it. They kiss. The cuddle. They call each other gross names. They do just about everything that can that would make an onlooker feel uncomfortable short of actual penetration. It's....well it's, whatever the opposite of adorable is.
2. The Fighters
On the other end of the spectrum is the couple who literally can't finish a sentence without taking a dig at the person they claim to be in love with. They broadcast any slight dissatisfaction they have with the other person in the most uncomfortable manner imaginable for those around them. They say it's out of love, but holy shit does it feel mean. The only reason you can think of that they haven't called it quits is the no doubt amazing make up sex that they must be having on a daily basis.
3. The Performers
The couples who constantly fight are mean, but at least they're honest. That's not the case with this couple. For them, love is a performance piece. They Instagram every interaction they've ever had. Rather than enjoying a kiss, they use it as an opportunity to pose for a Facebook picture. They talk about their SO to you, more than you've ever seen them actually talk to one another. It almost seems like they'd rather the rest of the world think they were in a happy relationship than to actually be in a happy relationship. Unfortunately for them, though, nobody cares as much as they want them to.
4. The Ones Who Try To Include You In Everything
When two people pair off, it can suck that you don't get to see them as much anymore. What sucks even more, however, is when you do. Every now and then, you'll be friends with a couple who will do their best to include you in more things than you'd like. It's like they can smell the single on you. They invite you to third wheel things that really should have been kept at two wheels, then try to casually act like you're all just friends hanging out, completely ignoring the fact that they are, in fact, fucking. The gesture is nice, but at a certain point you'd rather just be left out.
5. The Doomed Relationship
Sometimes it's easier to see things clearly when you're on the outside looking in. Too bad, you're the one on the outside. You know exactly where this relationship is headed and it's not towards the altar. Being around them feels like you're keeping some sort of horrible secret that you can never EVER say out loud....unless its behind the couple's back. The worst part of all of it, though, is having to act surprised when they actually do break up.
6. The Relationship You Actually Like
This is the couple that everyone thinks they are, but very few actually are. Every now and then, you'll be friends with a couple who nails it. They're good together. They're good in a group. You like them individually and somehow you don't hate the fact that they're in love. You hope this couple is in it for the long run, so of course they end up breaking up. That's when you must deal with the darkside of actually liking a couple: Picking a side in the split.
My phone? Why couldn't it have just been a distant relative or something??
