Redditor DrunkRobot97 makes an interesting case for the reason why Princess Peach from the Mario series keeps getting kidnapped, and why she’s still in power in the Mushroom Kingdom. Even if you don’t pay too much attention to the Mario games, you still have to wonder how she manages to pull it off. I know it’s a bit long, but take a look at this brilliant theory and let us know what you think. I’ve posted the text of the theory here, but it’s worth going to the site to read the followup discussion.
Fart jokes never get old for the small of mind. In this light, you may not have seen the fart-inspired parody of the infamously earwormy song, “Let It Go”. This is titled, quite appropriately, “Let One Go”, and the singing is about as close to Idina Menzel as you can possibly get without actually being Idina Menzel. Just a lot, lot ruder, of course.
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag is about to appear on the starboard bow. It chronicles the adventures of Edward Kenway, a privateer-turned-pirate. For their face-off, Epic Rap Battles of History turned their attention to a real scourge of the West Indies in the early 1700s: the notorious pirate Blackbeard. His opponent in this duel of words and wit would be none other than Chicago’s king of crime, “Al” Capone.
Check out the scallywag swagger in Blackbeard vs Al Capone below.
Who do you think won that rap battle?
At one point in our lives, we’ve either thought about it or have actually stuck our tongues down the business end of a vacuum cleaner. It might not be a pleasurable experience for us but this cat seems to lap it up. Watch the oddly amusing video below.
Arse is a surprisingly versatile word. If you could be arsed, I’m sure you can think of a few choice uses for it. British designer Stephen Wildish takes a closer look at the word, attempting to classify it into groups, from the good, the bad, the ugly, to the downright faecal. Have a look at his Taxonomy of Arse after the jump.
The world seems to love Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”. It has been covered hundreds and thousands of times on YouTube, and Luc Bergeron even created a music video for the song containing clips of other YouTube users singing it. It’s still surprisingly good.
The animal world is getting in on the act too. In this spoof by The Pet Collective, Pete “Pawdele” feels similarly scorned as his owner steps out the house with her male friend. Check out Digging in the Deep below.

If you’re looking for a soothing way to relax, this is not it.
According to comedian Peter Serafinowicz, while they were absent from the series, infamous Doctor Who enemies the Daleks created a series of new-age relaxation tapes for humans. Not usually known for their good bedside manner, an extract from the cassette tape has a Dalek issuing a variety of meditative commands with the goal of achieving peace and calm. Have a listen to the Dalek Relaxation Tape below and feel your stress being exterminated.
When you have as much spare time as I do these days, you tend to spend a lot of it either watching television or roaming Youtube. Most of the time it’s for new teasers of upcoming movies and nonsensical crud that’s posted by the world. Just when I was about to log off and cry myself to sleep, I found a webisode that put a smile on my face. It’s from The Daly Show.
The Daly Show, not to be confused with Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, stars Tim Daly (Wings, Diner) and his son Sam Daly. It’s essentially a parody of the life of Tim and Sam and the adventures they have.
Tim is also well known for his voice work as Clark Kent/Superman for DC Comics’ animated films and previous TV shows. This particular webisode uses this fact as the basis for its story and stars, in my opinion, the most underused talent of Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle). Nathan, as most fans of the WB animated films know, is the voice of Green Lantern. He is also, most importantly, keeping the Lantern dignified after Ryan Reynolds’ debacle with it. The short also stars Michael Rosenbaum whom we all remember as Lex Luthor in the Smallville series, but does the voice of The Flash along with Daly and Fillion in the Justice League.
I’m not going to write a brief plot as it would spoil it for you, but give it a watch and let us know what you think.
