For those of you enticed by swords and shields, the Dragonborn, mad kings and maidens, and Sean Bean, this next month is more anticipated than Christmas as HBO’s Game of Thrones is set to release Season 1 on Blu-Ray and DVD on March 6th, and Season 2 premieres April 1st. Last year, we explained Game of Thrones using beer. While our own nod toward the next season will be just as epic, we wanted to get the rest of you in on the fun. Therefore, we are launching a photoshop contest based on Game of Thrones!
It’s been far too long since there was an update at Something Awful’s Star Wars Valentines, so with the help of some last minute brainstorming, we came up with two that you can send to the Alderaanian geeks in your life.
Recent social feeds have forced us to come across a barrage of a new type of meme: “What My Friends Think I Do” posters. Not unlike De-motivational posters, these quirky images highlight jobs and, using witty pictures to explain what your friends, moms, co-workers, shrinks, and pets think you really do. This would be a fine addition to the meme family, except that it has exploded so fast that you can’t turn around, figuratively, on the internet without bumping into one, much like the dreaded “Shit People Say” theme. So we have created the kryptonite for this specific meme theme. Go forward and multiply it.
Kid Rock, former musical…well, pop-culture…hrm. Kid Rock, that white guy who used to yell “Bawitaba” incessantly while dirt-bikes did jumps over his head, once saved a hometown clothing line, “Made In Detroit”, from bankruptcy. Irony, however, has a crude sense of humor
It comes as no surprise that one of the more stoic players on one of the most stoic professional football teams lead by the most stoic coach in the history of the game would be diplomatic in his approach to explaining a loss in the Super Bowl. Tom Brady, starting quarterback of the New England Patriots and future Hall-of-Famer, said all the right things during his press conference after Super Bowl XLVI in order to protect his teammates.
Welcome back, football fans, to our quasi-professional football picks! Each week we will pick game winners based on Vegas over/under lines, and add some sharp commentary to the games. It’s all but decided who our winners will be this year as our British bookie seems to be running away with the prize between the commentators. Luckily, no-one gave up on cracking a few jokes about the game. Next year, we hope to be bigger and better, and may even fit some fantasy football in the mix. Good luck players! We will post all winners with ridiculous presentation speeches later in the week.
For the past month we have been inundated with more sh*t people say than we know what to do with; New Yorkers; chicks; hipsters; gay people; people watching clips of sh*t people say; cats. Now, we give the gag the classy send-off it deserves in the most epically ridiculous way. You’re welcome.
Welcome back, football fans, to our quasi-professional football picks! Each week we will pick game winners based on Vegas over/under lines, and add some sharp commentary to the games. While many of the winners in our contest seem to be in order down this last stretch, the most important game cannot be overlooked, for the sake of the NFL: the Pro Bowl! Where else can you see a scrimmage game between the top athletes that aren’t in the Super Bowl that means absolutely nothing? At least MLB’s All-Star game gives home-field advantage for the World Series.
Welcome back, football fans, to our quasi-professional football picks! Things are coming down to the wire for all players, and much like our leaders, these games are really about seeing if the defense will hold up against late game heroics by Eli Manning and Tom Brady, respectively.
