5 Ways To Make Tailgating Work For Baseball -... →
“Let’s face it; baseball isn’t the first sport you think of when planning your next tailgating adventure. How can anyone get worked up over a 162-game season for which everybody’s so damn laid back? A bunch of guys standing on a freshly mowed lawn, successfully hitting a ball with a stick 30% of the time if they’re good at it, does not exactly inspire one to fire up the grill and excitedly...
6 Hilariously Bad Attempts To Mix Pro Wrestling... →
This giant chunk of muscle was what the World Wrestling Federation deemed to be a “bodybuilder.” They had a whole group of ‘em, and dubbed them the World Bodybuilding Federation. Dressing up meatheads in bad Halloween costumes was such a rousing success, that the whole thing was cancelled within a year. Guess the Phantom Of The Opera bodybuilder wasn’t phantom-y enough to...
May I Fake Your Order? The Homemade Fast Food... →
This is a drumstick covered in 11 herbs and spices; my attempt at improvising KFC’s secret recipe. It went about as well as you might imagine. I also attempted to make a Shamrock Shake, and a Doritos Locos Taco, all from scratch, and totally off the top of my head. Sadly, this is my final article for Zug, as the website is shutting down at the end of the week. So, anyone who wants to see...
Megatron v Megatron →
Life’s full of tough questions: how much should governments intervene in private life? Should gay people be allowed to marry each other? Should Creationism be taught in schools? Are evil robots better at fighting to the death than superstar NFL wide receivers? Guess which issue I’m here to talk about. Yep, Megatron battles Megatron in my latest piece, because I am an important member of society...
Appetite Suppressor: The Health Food Made... →
That club-looking thing is actually food, a horseradish root to be exact. it’s stupidly hot and tastes like crap. So maybe some ice cream on top will help? Either that or it’ll make me hate ice cream forever. In addition to that bit of goofiness, I took many more super-vegetables, and attempted to make them tastier by adding junk food. The results were mixed. Sometimes I grimaced,...
Defending The Dumb: Dennis Rodman In North Korea →
In Part 2 of my ongoing Defending The Dumb series, I stick up for poor, misunderstood Dennis Rodman. All he wanted to do was save the world and make a friend, and everyone’s calling him a moron, an attention whore, and an apologist for genocide. Some people are just plain rude, right Dennis?

4 Fictional Robots You Could Take In A Fight →

Because that’s an important skill to have, in case you ever come across a real life...
5 Horrible Sports Records (From The Year 2000 On) →
This poor schlub is a professional bowler, and managed to finish a game with 100 stinking points. ONE-HUNDRED. Drunken lunatics with half their fingers missing could pull of a 100. This guy proves that pitifully bad sports outings aren’t just limited to old-timey games like that 222-0 drubbing from 1920-something that football fans love to harp about. No, we’re still pretty adept at...
4 Sports Movie Underdogs (Who Artificially... →
By the time Karate Kid 3 rolled around, Daniel-san was one of the greatest karate experts around. So what’s this? Well, the writers needed to build intrigue, so they wrote in a couple awkward scenes where he manages to forget everything he was ever taught, and become karate krap once again. Thus, we get to root for the underdog again, hooray! This happens more than you might think, as I...
Are You Not Edutained?! The Kiddie Games Marathon →
A lot of those silly Flash games that pervade the Internet are designed to teach something to children. That something is usually damn-near-nothing, by the way. As a parent/professional sufferer, I felt compelled to sit down for a day and play through a bunch of these games, to see if they could teach me anything beyond “You’re a moron.” Turns out, not really. In fact,...

Defending The Dumb: No More Olympic Wrestling →
Even though satire on the Internet tends to go nowhere (too much thinking and not enough cats is the usual feedback,) I do it anyway. This is me “defending” the Olympic’s decision to remove wrestling from the 2020 lineup, cuz someone needs to stand up for the poor, misunderstood underdogs that make up the International Olympic Committee.

9 Gag-A-Day Comic Strips That Got Weird Once... →
Remember newspapers? They still exist, and so do the funnies inside. Not that they’re “funny” or anything, but they certainly do exist. And a few of them are taking chances, not by experimenting with new humor or radical approaches to art. No, they’re choosing to just gross us out with jokes about scat, incest, and bestiality. Soon, they all will be naked. Every single...
4 Unsexy Pieces Of Lingerie That You Can Actually... →
Most unsexy and creepy-looking lingerie is reserved for the catwalk, because models need to silently regret every decision they’ve ever made in their own special way. But sometimes, companies get cute and release some truly eyeball-rolling bedroom wear. They then expect you to pay for them. Such as above! Because nothing screams sexy like having every last body part obscured so you look...

A Complete Idiot’s First Eating Challenge →

Apocalypse…How? The Goofiest Ways the World Ends →
In two days, the world will either explode, get crushed by an asteroid, or be devoured by giant mutant worms. Please let it be the latter; that way, my newest article will make me look like a soothsayer. Sadly, a dead soothsayer. Because I would be eaten by a worm. But it’d be so worth it to be right.
All these people squawking about 12.12.12 being the last sequential day ever just aren’t aiming high enough. I totally plan on seeing 01.01.01! Course, I’ll be 119 and swimming in a pile of my own drool by then, but at least I can say I saw another sequential day. Provided I’m able to wheeze the words out by that point.

See that? Multiply it by five and you’ve got what I just tortured myself with, all for the sake of comedy.

Six Ancient Gods You Could Take In A Fight →

This, and five other sorry excuses for all-powerful deities, are properly mocked in my debut for 604Republic’s TheGeekout page. I wasn’t kidding when I said I’m taking over the Internet.
Parental Advisory: The Never-Ending Kidz Bop... →
My Zug debut is now up and ready for your amusement. I suffered through hours of this: Yes, dozens upon dozens of Kidz Bop songs went through my poor little ears, and I documented all I observed. Why? Well, they learned I have a kid, and suggested I focus on enduring/reviewing horrible children’s entertainment. It pays well, which is good. I’ll need to afford therapy somehow. Oh,...

Tumblr does all the work for me. That's so sweet.
Well hey, I log onto Tumblr to whore out my two (yes, TWO) new articles that Man Cave Daily just published, only to find that the new Wordpress feature automatically puts them there. And then I see it did the same thing on Facebook. Noice; now go click, read, and share with the masses. Jokes about goofy Presidential wannabes, and then jokes about goofy frat-boy movies. Sounds like a good way to...
