(Twitter/simoncholland and Getty/Nedezhda1906)

You did it, you made it to Friday! Here’s your round-up of random funny stuff from around the internet this week to launch you into your weekend. (Does anyone know if-if there are any big important sporting events this weekend?)

Funny Video:

No one on Jeopardy knows about football. What is sports, Alex? No, seriously though. No, that’s not my answer. I’m genuinely asking and I’m scared.


Sadly, too real.

Joke/Meme Trends:

The joke trend of the week on Twitter seems to be making up fake meanings behind “what your kids are texting” and some are pretty funny.

Kids these days and their secret codes, I tell ya.

Funny Animal:

Anyone with a cat knows they will ignore you right up until the moment you’re trying to accomplish something. Thems the cat laws.

Funny Dad:

Simon Holland is one of the funniest dads on the internet, and he tells us what it really means to “go full dad.”

Funny Commercial Spoof:

Here at The Dad, our team made a video all of us parents can relate to, big time.

It’s had such a good response, we talked to ABC News about it.

Have a good weekend, dads! Kick back and enjoy the Super Bowl. And by all means, take AphukenbrakE.

Weekly Web: A Collection of Funny Stuff


If you’re looking to kick off your weekend with a bit of nonsense from around the internet, you’ve come to the right place. Every week we round up some of our favorite internet snacks and serve them to you, with no promises on their value, nutritional or otherwise. Enjoy.

Funny News

A Taco Bell burned down and people held a candle light vigil to mourn the loss of it. Because people are awesome sometimes (and tacos are awesome all the time.)


Funny Food

Our fragile planet is even more stunning in nugget form, don’t you think?

Funny Animals

Twice divorced and accustomed to a certain lifestyle.


Every parent can relate to this one.

Funny Dad:

This dad installed two baby gates to try and keep his climber baby contained, then captured the moment when she proved he underestimated her. (Note: many people have commented with concern that this easily could’ve been dangerous for the child, so we at The Dad must clarify that you should not try this at home.)

Funny Memes

Connect Four memes have been around for a while, but have been resurfacing lately. I noticed several of these memes popping up on twitter this week, and I welcome them.

As far as I can tell, it all started with the timeless and simplistic “Connect One” meme.


And the internet ran with it.


You get the idea. You can see more here if your hunger for Connect Four memes has not been satisfied.

Oh, and look. Even Denny’s joined in.

Joke Trends

The Super Bowl is coming which means, the Super Bowl jokes are coming.

Funny Gifs

Sending you off with some raccoon gifs, because who doesn’t need a few raccoon gifs. I can never decide if I think raccoons are extremely funny or extremely creepy, and I think it’s the not knowing that keeps me coming back for more.

Enjoy your nightmares about creepy zombie raccoon hands, and we’ll see you next week for another Weekly Web roundup.

Weekly Web: A Collection of Funny Stuff

Do you have a “real life” that inconveniently prevents you from perusing the internet nonstop all day every day? First of all, you’re a show-off. You think you’re SO COOL, don’t you? Secondly, we’ve got you covered. We will keep our eyes on this strange and frightening creature that is the world wide web, then bring you a weekly report of things that you might find entertaining, baffling, or both.

FUNNY APP: Google Arts and Culture

You’ve likely seen all your friends doing this and posting it in the last week, and honestly, it lives up to the hype. The app takes a photo of you (real time, no cheating by uploading something from 10 years and 30 lbs ago) and matches you to your fine art doppelganger. It’s super entertaining and, as a bonus, it’s totally free to download and use. Get some arts and culture in your lives, guys.

(We made one of our editors, Jordan, do it and the results were beyond perfect)

FUNNY VIDEO: “Coincidance”

This is… well? I don’t know how to explain what this is except amazing. It’ll make you say “WTF” while also burning itself into your brain forever, and isn’t that the goal of a good internet video? You might pick up some sweet dance moves, too.


Tide Pods are a thing we make jokes about now, apparently. After a bunch of dumb teenagers started daring each other to put these toxic things into their mouths and making jokes about it, this meme spread like wildfire across the internet.


If you want to read some of the best tweets about Tide Pods, see our roundup.

Things have gotten so out of control, in fact, that Tide released a video on January 12 with NFL player Rob Gronkowski to tell us, “hey idiots, don’t eat laundry detergent.”


Thank you, benevolent Gronk, for saving us from the evil Tide Pods, and from ourselves.

But check this out, maybe we DO want to eat some Tide Pods after all.


Shitty Mario (twitter.com/shittymario)

This twitter account is dedicated to sharing “all those slightly off, shitty Marios out there.” If you didn’t know shitty Marios excited, now you know that they are out there, waiting to make you laugh and haunt your dreams.



This is too real, and “oh no” is right.


It’s penguins meets Star Wars and it’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of.

And now that I’m on the subject of penguins, I really can’t NOT share this one. Make sure your volume is on and your heart is open to some dang penguin joy.


This girl filmed her dad trying to walk to his car on ice with glorious results and posted it for us all to see.


And finally, much of the country is a frozen wasteland right now, so here are some gifs of falling into snow that will warm your heart (because at least it’s not you.)
