College Humor's latest video, "Just Let the World Die," imagines what might happen if top scientists and military personnel discovered that an Armageddon-style asteroid was headed for Earth in the Trump era.

College Humor Reminds Us that Westworld Is Basically Just Jurassic Park With Robots

All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again. Wait, that's a totally different revamped 1970s sci-fi property, but the major point still stands. Michael Crichton loved him some amusement parks where the attractions go haywire.

Lisa Loeb, Reggie Watts, Weird Al & More Audition For Star Wars [VIDEO]

TK-421 Why Aren't You At Your Post?

I'm not sure how funny this one is, College Humor, but bravo getting (in order) Chris Daughtry, Ben Folds, Liz Phair, Reggie Watts, Mark McGrath, Jordin Sparks, Rick Springfield, Weird Al, Lisa Loeb, and mc chris in one video. Also, have to say it, high five for more diversity than Star Wars: Episode VII. (via The Hollywood Reporter) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

Female Comedians Campaign For More Dongs on HBO [VIDEO]

Just What You've Always Wanted

If you watch Game of Thrones you know HBO loves their female nudity. But male nudity? Not so much. A selection of HBO's female viewers speak out on this inequality in a hilarious video titled "HBO Should Show Dongs." One of my favorite bits: "For every topless background extra, every actress that bears her bouncies but doesn't even get a line, every minute we have to sit through this dumb double-standard, you owe us an inch of grade-A man meat." Truth. Slightly NSFW for blurred out boobs 'n' bits. (The Jane Dough) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

Daria Movie Starring Aubrey Plaza Is Not A Real Thing: What Sort Of Sick Sad World Is This?

Thing That Might Have to Exist

La la la la la... La la la la la... She's back-- College Humor released this fake movie trailer for Daria: High School Reunion starring deadpan darling Aubrey Plaza. A while ago there were some rumors floating around of Plaza actually playing Daria in a live-action movie, but nothing ever came of it. Now that she's in this trailer, we wish something had! Check it out and get your nostalgia on. (via Flavorwire)

Hey, Even (Especially?) Evil Kids Need Daycare [VIDEO]

Things to Do With Your Kids

Kids. Sometimes they're sweet, sometimes they're bratty, and sometimes they're evil hellions... literally. Though that tends to happen more in the movies than in real life. Here, CollegeHumor gives us a look at a very specialized daycare, where a friendly daycare director has to deal with all the creepy children from The Shining, The Exorcist, Ringu, The Omen, Children of the Corn and the like. Better her than me. She's better at evil chanting from The Evil Dead's Necronomicon than I am. (Not for lack of trying, I might add.)

The Dark Secret of HBO GO [VIDEO]

You know nothing Jon Snow

Fellow Game of Thrones fans: You know how it goes. You want to watch this week's episode, but you don't get HBO! Or you don't have a TV, whatever. You could wait for an illegal download to show up and acquire it that way. (And many do—Game of Thrones was the most pirated show of 2012.) You could wait a few months until it comes out on DVD and marathon the whole season at once. (Does anyone actually do this?) Or you could, as in this video from CollegeHumor, just borrow someone else's HBO GO password. Easy peasy. Except when the password wasn't theirs to begin with. And further and further down the rabbit hole we go... (via: Laughing Squid) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

So, The Back Cover Ad on Batman This Month Is a “Fake Geek Girl” Joke

Today in things that make us scream incoherently

You might be forgiven for not noticing any ads in Scott Snyder's Batman #13, since the story is riveting, horrifying, and kicks off the first major appearance of the Joker in the New 52. In fact, until David Willis of Shortpacked pointed it out on his tumblr, I didn't even notice that the back cover ad on this issue was different from the back cover ad of the three other DC comics books I picked up this week. Which is unusual, since the way ads in comics usually work is that they are the same across all of a publisher's titles in a given month, right down to page placement. So what's the ad hiding behind that die cut cover of the Joker's horrifying new face?

Watch as Batman’s Short-Term Memory Loss Gets In The Way Of His Crime-fighting [Video]

Elsewhere on the internet

Batman might be the World's Greatest Detective, but he sure has a horrible case of short-term memory loss! We know you were all hoping for another Dark Knight Rises clip to get you pumped for Friday, but we thought we'd end today with this bit of College Humor silliness instead. Watch as Batman makes a total fool of himself in this reenactment of Two-Face's spree of terror in The Dark Knight!

Here’s Season Two of Game of Thrones Summarized in an 8-bit Video Game

Bloody Good Fun

It's been well over a month since season two of Game of Thrones came to an end, but I am still in withdrawal. Sometimes it gets ugly. Sometimes I imagine taking my imaginary dragons over to George R. R. Martin's house and demanding that he tell me everything about Jon Snow's mother and promise me Arya will stay safe and not-dead until she is very, very old. So really, anything that takes my mind off of the wait til season three is probably healthy. Especially this, Game of Thrones season two as imagined as an 8bit video game. It reminded me of two very valuable lessons: Don't piss off Dany, and never trust a woman who gives birth to the smoke monster from Lost. (via GeekSugar)

What if the Founding Fathers Signed Their Emails Like Us Modern Folk?

It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

Oh, us modern people and our strange technological ways. On this very American of days, we thought we'd look back on a much simpler time, technology-wise. Well, kind of. It's more like a warped alternate universe in which the founding fathers had the same obsessed with fonts and cat videos as a lot of people on the internet do. It also begs the question: What would our history be if John Adams had more access to glitter? (via How to Geek)

Another Day, Another Dora the Explorer Action Movie

I Want to Believe

Remember that...M for mature, to say the least, live action Dora The Explorer spoof? In the same spirit of corrupting the childhoods of children everywhere,  College Humor has gifted the world with a trailer for the live action thriller  Dora The Explorer: The Search For The Infinity Orb. File this under movies we sort of totally wish were real. Alex Winter, know as Alex Dunphy on the ABC comedy Modern Family, plays Dora. If only all children's TV shows were this cool.

Batman: Good At Fighting Crime, Awful at Lying [VIDEO]

i'll just leave this here

For the amount of time Batman spends disguised and cleaning up crime in Gotham, he's pretty darn bad at lying about it. Check out Pete Holmes as he parodies Batman: The Dark Knight for Front Page Films, the same folks that brought us the Batman Perfecting His Voice and If Batman Were Terrible With Riddles videos! Oh Batman, you've dug your hole of lies so deep not even you could grapple gun out of it.

I Think I’ve Played This Doctor Who RPG, No Wait, I Just Lived Through It [VIDEO]

Just Go With It

So far, the Matt Smith era of Doctor Who has been a huge hit, both in the U.K. and the U.S. but some long-time fans of the sci-fi series are of the mind that his have been some of the most confusing seasons ever. To show us why, College Humor have put together another one of their fantastic RPG-style videos (you may remember their Battlestar Galactica one). Check it out after the jump!

Hunger Games Meets Girl Talk For Dating & Death!

Thing That Might Have to Exist

I must make a slight amendment to that category. It should read: THINGS THAT MUST EXIST NAO! Like, totally! The 1988 classic board game, Girl Talk, is improved upon by College Humor in this video. Why just talk about boys, make-up, and dating when you can talk about boys, make-up, and dating while also trying to avoid being murdered by your fellow tributes? And yes, it's called The Hunger Games Game, and we can imagine the tweens in the Capitol playing it right now. We can also imagine ourselves playing it: Right. Now. Also, one or more of us may still own Girl Talk or a Girl Talk-type telephone. You can guess but I'm never telling. Unless I draw the truth card. (via HuffPost Women)

You Can Experience Battlestar Galactica In 4 Minutes Thanks To This 16-Bit Version


This 16-bit video game Battlestar Galactica parody by College Humor is pretty spot on when it comes to summing up the entire series. It also does a really good job of spoiling the entire series. Nods to both the classic and relaunch series ahead.

On Skimpy Suits of Armor for Women

Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

Female body armor as portrayed in most comics and movies is, to say the least, impractical. How can one go about kicking serious ass when those booty shorts are giving you a constant wedgie? The last thing you want to worry about when you're pummeling some bad (or good) guy is some embarrassing wardrobe malfunction, or, you know, a very gory death. And let's face it, you'd be dead in a second wearing most of these costumes. This recent College Humor video finally shines a light on these issues. (via Laughing Squid)

Sometimes Forcefields are Just Invisible, You Know? [Video]

There's probably some comedy going on here, but Aubrey Plaza as Princess Leia is awesomely distracting, so who can really say for sure.

Internet: The TV Show

I feel like someone is probably thinking up this channel right now, except without the sense of humor. And more ads than humanly possible. (Also: the Craig's List show would be worth its own channel, and I'm torn on the use of a Bob Ross-type character for 4chan.) (CollegeHumor via Geeks Are Sexy)
