3 Shows that Got Cancelled on Comedy Central that I Miss

3. Reno 911– I wasn’t a huge fan of this show, but it was definitely entertaining to watch when there was nothing else on. However, there was one hilarious reason that I loved this show!

Terry from Reno 911.

Hey boys! Pew!

Nick Swardson’s character, Terry, was absolutely ridiculous! I loved every minute that he was on screen. Here is one of his best performances. (That’s appropriate for all ages of course.)

Even though this wasn’t one of my favorite shows, it had it’s moment where it was really funny. Too bad it got cancelled. Now I’m stuck with re-runs that I’ve seen a million times. But Dangle’s short shorts never get old!

Not short enough if you ask me...

 

2. That’s My Bush!– I’m interested to know how many people actually remember this show. For those of you who never watched it, it was a satire about former President, George W. Good ole George got made fun of a lot during his presidency, but this show did it perfectly! It was created by the comedic masterminds, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. They are famous for a little show, you probably never heard of called South Park.

Also known for this wonderful gem of comedy.

Unfortunately, the guys thought the show wouldn’t be well received after September 11th, which was probably smart thinking. I just have fond memories of watching this show with my family and we thought it was hilarious. Here is a little taste:

 

1. Important Things with Demetri Martin– I’m a huge fan of Demetri Martin and his intellectual humor. I mean, this guy quit college with only one year of law school left to be a comedian. That’s unbelievable to me!

Yeah, you could totally have this guy defending you in a court of law.

However, his show was pretty much horrible. I love his stand-up, but he was stretched way too thinby having to come up with new material every week. He’s the type of comedian who needs time to come up with clever material, and I love him for that. I do miss this show, because I was happy to see a comedian that I followed so closely finally starting to get attention. Every now and then he would pull something out of his sleeve that was comedy gold. He’s still a great comedian and I hope he does another special soon!

What other shows did you use to love before they got cancelled? Tell me about them in the comments section!

The Record for Watching the Most TV is Being Attempted in LA

Wow, first of all, I had no idea that you could get into the book of world records, just by sitting around and watching TV. I’m pretty sure I’ve set some records in my days of sitting around and doing nothing but watching Jerry Springer.

Yeah I turn to this guy for entertainment.

The old record for the most TV watched is 86 hours. That’s a lot! However, this trio in LA think they can break the record by watching 100 hours! The participants are Greg Durfee, Jackie Haigh and Raymond Garcia. And what’s laughable about this is the fact that they are doing it for a charity. It sounds like they are just trying to make money for doing absolutely nothing.

Also rich for doing absolutely nothing.

The coach potatoes also made the decision to only watch Italian movies and TV shows. Which means, they could potentially watch 100 hours of Jersey Shore and become brain dead. But they did state that they would only be watching family-friendly entertainment because they want this to be a family-friendly event. So no Sopranos, The Godfather, or you know good movies. Instead they will be watching….

Rocky 5
Dear Lord, please not again!

Also, one of the participants has diabetes. And there’s nothing better for that than to sit around, eat junk food and watch TV all day. I hope you aren’t too attached to your foot, because you might just lose it.

Man Gets Charged With DUI Twice In One Night

Someone call the guys from the book of world records. This guy named Robert Brodnick from Pennsylvania got charged with a DUI twice in one night. How does that even happen?

A doctor shrugging.
Not even science can explain the stupidity.

The worst part about this story is the fact that the guy got his second DUI 15 minutes after he got the first one. And to make matters worse, he got stopped by the same cop! How stupid can one person be?  Once he was arrested the police found out that Robert’s blood-alcohol limit was at least double of what the law allows.

Brodnick then said he only had a few beers and wanted to drive his new car home. I’m no alcohol expert but I’m pretty sure a few beers won’t get you as hammered as this guy actually was.

A guy drinking a beer.
I don’t think I’m drunk…I know I’m drunk, officer!

4 Jobs You Probably Didn’t Know Existed

It’s weird how some people stumble into their jobs. Some people spend years of their lives getting a degree and then working a job that has nothing to do with their selected field. Out of all the jobs that are out there, here are 4 jobs that you probably didn’t know existed.

1. Fortune Cookie Writer- If you are a writer, this might seem like a dream job. Sure you don’t get credit for any of your vague predictions, but if you love doing little work and getting paid, then you should check it out. Imagine that you only have to write single sentences that fit into a cookie. Sounds like a pretty sweet gig, and I doubt you would have to worry about writer’s block. However, you may be shocked when your boss decides to let you go.

Seems slightly depressing.

 

2.Chicken Sexer- Although this job title seems off-putting and odd, it’s really not as bad as it sounds. When chickens are born, their sex needs to be determined pretty fast. Female chickens are used for egg production and the males are used for meat. A chicken sexer basically divides the two. I think they should look into changing the title though in case it attracts the wrong people.

Run chicken run!!!

 

3. Dog Food Tester- This is a job you may want to avoid, even if you are desperate for employment. As a dog food tester, you get to eat, sniff, and evaluate dog food. That’s it! And to add insult to injury, it usually doesn’t pay that well. I bet this job makes it really hard to enjoy your lunch break. And it must really suck when you have to take your work home with you.

Mmmm. That looks appealing. I’m sure the wet food is worse though.

 

4. Golf Ball Diver- If you love golf and scuba diving, then this may be the career for you. You basically get paid to recover golf balls from water hazards. This is no joke. You can even take courses on how to become a golf ball diver. However, you may need to be careful. With things like crocodiles, snakes and broken glass in the water, this could be a very dangerous job.

If you aren’t careful, you could end up like Chubbs from Happy Gilmore. Rich and successful.
