Dumb stuff that makes you laugh

All right, what are some things (stories/jokes/movies/whatevz) that either make you smirk, giggle, or totally crack up that don't really have any right or reason to?—stuff that's so dumb, most people would just roll their eyes and think you're retarded for chortling.

For me, this is actually a pretty common occurrence since I like (a) absurdity, (b) crudeness, and (c) humor for the sake of humor—that is, something that just hits your funnybone in a most intrinsically, instinctively pure way that laughter is a reaction rather than something you have to really think about. (Which is probably why I'm such a big fan of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) That's not to say I'm not discerning when it comes to humor, however, as there's a lot of crass or ridiculous things that are just...too dumb to the point of not being comical. There's a certain approach to doing things right that I just can't quite describe.

Anyway, the inspiration for making this thread is this video which I just saw tonight:

Pokémon Spread

It cracks me up. I've watched it several times already.

"No!"
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Benny Hill. Wait, no, I don't even need Benny Hill (though I thoroughly enjoy it), just the theme song-Yakketty Sax. I hear that & the snickers, giggles & gufaws flow like water because I know something utterly HILARIOUS is just around the bend.
Damn. It's as if your life was geared to prevent you from enjoying it. And I'm sure it's not fun either.

First thing that came to mind when I started reading this was Tim and Eric, so since that's already been mentioned...

I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

High five. I doubt I'll ever find someone I can laugh in sync to the likes of T&E or Wonder Showzen. It's not that I think I'm special or anything, but explaining that stuff is simply not possible. You either get it or it's not your cup of tea. I mean, I was literally in tears for many, many times when I watched this, for example:

Paul Rudd's Computer

Billion Dollar movie was pretty terrible (though I did laugh my ass off at a couple of scenes - like the bar party montage). I really wish those guys would make another season of Awesome Show Great Job.

It's pretty difficult to explain the comedy of T&E to someone, that's for sure.
That Paul Rudd video is one of their finest moments.

I like the movie personally, seeing's how it really had to be in a different format to fill out 90 minutes. Ya just gotta wonder why making a movie was ever an idea to pursue... It's good, but the show's a million times better.

And last I heard, they were planning another season. I might have just dreamed that information, though, because they definitely said five would be their last.

I'm kinda letdown by myself for not watching the Chrimbus special over the holidays.

A week or two ago at work, I had a fair amount of downtime (waiting for stuff to mix, bake, freeze) so I watched a lot of Oney's cartoons. That Wingardium Leviosa one had me laughing to the point of tears on more than one occasion.

I'm absolutely delighted by some of his videos. (And puzzled why some dumb shit like "The Sicksons" exists, but I guess folks gotta start their craft somewhere.) The Dragonzball Pee episodes are pure magic.

Dragonzball P

Dragonzball PeePee

Considering buying a shirt. Seriously.


This live-action one's also pretty nifty, being Oney and Stamper who co-did the Pokemonz video above.

Conan O'Brien repeating his schtick in the CONAN show makes me laugh! Always! Don't know if that qualifies, tho.  ???

Dumb stuff that makes me laugh? Without a doubt the un-released original endings from TM1. Although I give Jaffe credit for realizing how un-Godly stupid these were and (wise) burying them as deeply as he could.

Lost Endings - Thumper (Bruce Cochrane) - Twisted Metal

Twisted Metal - The Lost Endings: Sweet Tooth's Ending

Lost Endings - Yellow Jacket (Charlie Kane) - Twisted Metal
