What happens when you get three grandmas who have never used marijuana to try their first toke?
Thanks to the folks at Cut.com ("The Internet's Happy Place"), now we know. And it's one of the most adorable things I've ever watched.
Filmed in Washington state where pot is legal and plentiful, the six-minute clip shows the women hitting a bong and doing some vaping before munching out while playing Jenga and Cards Against Humanity—oh, and they discuss the word queefy.
Honestly, hearing a grandma say the phrase "bleached asshole" would be enough reason to watch alone.
During a segment on the National yesterday (November 6), Rex Murphy offered his opinion on the ongoing Jian Ghomeshi scandal.
In the span of three minutes, Murphy compares Ghomeshi to Voldemort, and calls him a chameleon, a narcissist, and an over-the-hill hipster, while also managing to deride womens' studies programs.
The erstwhile Canadian celebrity also notes that "there is no more empty mindless status than celebrity".
I wonder: does Murphy write his own copy?
If you've ever seen Kevin Spacey do celebrity impressions, you've witnessed a human chameleon in action.
He cracked up Saturday Night Live audiences years ago when he pretended to be various stars auditioning for the original Star Wars, ranging from Jack Lemmon to Walter Matthau.
He put his skills to the test when he competed against SNL alumni Jimmy Fallon in Wheel of Impressions on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on October 31. The two stars had to perform their impressions of a number of celebrities speaking about various Halloween-related subjects.
The latest contestant for the position of World's Worst Person says women wouldn't care about street harassment if the guys who catcall them were attractive.
In a recent "debate" on CNN hosted by Fredricka Whitfield, comedian Amanda Seales and Steve Santagati, author of The MANuel (ugh), discuss a recent video chronicling street harassment in New York City.
The CNN segment is gross from the outset. After Seales mentions she is harassed on the street on a daily basis, Santagati murmurs, "nice, nice", in a voice that makes my skin crawl.
In the U.S., the TV series What Would You Do? regularly stages scenes of discrimination in public locations to see how bystanders will (or won't) react.
After the fatal shooting of Corporal Nathan Cirillo by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau at the national war memorial in Ottawa, York University student Omar Albach was inspired to film a video similar to WWYD.
He decided to conduct a "social experiment" to see how comfortable Canadians felt about being around Muslims.
Straight white males, do you feel frustrated because the media is no longer catering exclusively to you? Do you get a big sad whenever you are reminded of your privilege?
Comedian Peter Coffin has the solution for you: Brozac!
"Brozac works by blocking the brain's social justice receptors," according to the video. "This restores you to the clearer, happier state of total narcissism you once felt comfortable and safe in."
Check out the video below.

With the likes of Justin Bieber, Rob Ford, and Jian Ghomeshi, Canada is not only making international headlines, but we're also gaining a worldwide reputation for being a nation of idiots and assholes. (I guess we can also thank our current leadership for his contributions, too. Cheers, Harper.)
Thank god for Kevin Vickers.
While Vickers has been pretty much drowned out by the media tsunami covering Ghomeshigate, somehow news satirist Stephen Colbert managed to take note of Vickers' dynamic act of bravery.
On his Comedy Central program, Colbert paid tribute to the House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms for his takedown of Parliament Hill shooter Michael Zehaf-Bibeau on October 22.
Toronto comedian Megan MacKay's website describes her as an "amateur Kanye West impersonator".
She also knows how to duplicate the Jian Ghomeshi look.
In her makeup tutorial, she shares how you too can use the "Beloved Public Broadcaster" and "Pseudo-Intellectual Douchebag" shades to your advantage.
What do you think would happen when a homophobe hugs a gay person for the first time in his or her life?
Well, you'll see in the following video, an experiment by the Gay Women Channel. It's from a few months ago but it's still very relevant, even here in Canada where gay rights may exist but so do homophobes, some behind veneers of political correctness.
Anyhow, if you're in need of cheering up, this should put a smile on your face. And make you want to go hug a gay person.
