Top Signs You’re Seeing a Redneck Doctor!

September 28, 2012

Honey Boo Boo’s dad is home after spending 12 days in the hospital for a leg infection. That got us wondering about the “doctorin'” he received. Here are the Top Signs You’re Seeing a Redneck Doctor.

To sterilize everything he uses moonshine.

When his patients don’t make it, he stuffs and mounts them.

All of the pills he gives you are chicken-fried.

He writes you a prescription for crystal meth.

In front of his office is an ambulance on cinder blocks.

He checks your reflexes by having you pull his finger.

His lab coat has ads for Pennzoil and John Deere.

His nurse is also his wife. And his sister.

Instead of beeping, the heart monitor plays “Dixie” like the car horn on “The Dukes of Hazzard”.

His receptionist also sells bait.

Top Things Overheard from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad During His New York Trip!

September 28, 2012

Iran’s controversial president is in the Big Apple for the U.N. General Assembly session. Let’s get his observations with the Top Things Overheard from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad During his New York Trip.

So are there any movies showing that don’t blaspheme Mohammed?

I found this bitchin’ store in Times Square with a sale on Members Only jackets!

In this whole city I bet I couldn’t find 72 virgins.

We better wrap things up at the U.N. on time. I’ve got tickets tonight to see “Newsies” on Broadway!

I know I hate the Jews and all, but I’d kill for a bagel with lox!

You call Iran a threat to America, and yet you give Lindsay Lohan a drivers’ license?

While I’m here, might as well pick up a few bucks by driving a cab.

The only way Iran will get “the bomb” is if I hook up with Sofia Vergara, am I right?

When my wife looks at my credit card statements, I’m going to have to deny the existence of these trips to Crazy Girls!

In Iran, we’d just have those replacement refs shot.

When every country in Europe except the UK printed those topless photos of Kate Middleton, it was time to dust out the broad stereotypes and have some fun! This didn’t land as well as I had hoped but it was still fun.

Top Little-Known Facts About the United Nations!

September 26, 2012

All the nations of the world are united on one thing: no way did Jon Cryer deserve that Emmy.

The delegates from France and Brazil totally hooked up during the holiday party.

All speeches are translated into Romulan.

Greece? Totally gay.

For some reason the Colombian ambassador is always getting phone calls from Lindsay Lohan and Billie Joe Armstrong

All that money collected by kids trick-or-treating for UNICEF actually goes to hire strippers.

The UN just stationed peacekeepers between Beyonce and Kim Kardashian.

The blue in the U.N. flag matches exactly Jake Gyllenhaal’s dreamy eyes.

When his speech gets cut short, Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad freaks out worse than Billie Joe Armstrong.

In order to get Angelina Jolie to serve as a U.N. goodwill ambassador, every country in the world had to agree to give her one child.

And the Emmy goes to. . . Whitney Cummings. Psych!

If “Mad Men” loses, you “comfort” Christina Hendricks, and I’ll “comfort” Jon Hamm.

Neil Patrick Harris just offered to show me his “statue.” In the men’s room.

I sure hope Best Comedy goes to the Mitt Romney campaign!

I just saw Jessica Lange up close. Talk about an “American Horror Story”!

September 20, 2012

Mitt Romney’s jump-the-gun response to the attack on the Libyan consulate in Benghazi got me thinking: what if he was the sheriff coming in to clean up an Old West town? Here’s what I came up with. Mike Besaw did a great job with the sound effects on this one. And I like how Mike McLendon’s character’s name is a shout-out to his Harold team.

Top Reasons You’re Still Unemployed

September 20, 2012

The only special skill listed on your resume is burping the lyrics to “Call Me Maybe”.

Turns out that Shannen Doherty was lying in those commercials about the value of a college degree you get off the internet.

There’s no job that can use your only computer skill: finding free porn.

Even though you’re 34, Mom and Dad won’t let you borrow the keys to the minivan.

Instead of typing your resume, you pasted letters cut out of magazines and newspapers.

Responding to help wanted ads by sexting wasn’t such a good idea.

In interviews you always bring up your love of collecting Nazi paraphernalia.

Dressing like a Hooters waitress only works when you’re applying at Hooters. And female.

Your only references are Gary Busey and Amanda Bynes.

Your last job was writing speeches for Mitt Romney fundraisers.
