"How Are There Not, Like, Fifty Murders Every Day at Disneyland?" Here is the brlliant Louis CK going on “Conan” last night and tossing off brilliant truths about the human condition. And don’t call it “material.” “Material” suggests there’s some kind of disingenuousness to it. No, what you’re watching here is a brilliant man at the peak of his considerable powers demonstrating his prolific ability to explore the profundity of life in the funniest way possible.

"You’re Like A Cartographer Of The Female Form." Most celebrity comic web shorts are dreadful, but this John Stamos Guide To Cuddling (featuring Bob Saget as the demonstration model) is actually pretty darn funny. And as a bonus, some of the cuddling techniques demonstrated are actually quite helpful. Saget will adore it when you “s’touch” him like that.

“This is Samantha. She’s just like you, but her life has been destroyed… by Netflix.” The backlash to the Netflix backlash crests with this Funny or Die fake PSA starring Jason Alexander. FACT: Jason Alexander is always funnier when sporting an obvious hairpiece. It really makes the whole sketch sing. Pity the 555 number provided doesn’t connect you an actual parody voicemail.

Area Tumblr Feed Finds Onion-Like Headlines.  At long last, someone has founded a site that finds real headlines silly enough to sound like they were written by the staff at The Onion.  It’s an example of life imitating art imitating life imitating an area man who maintains dietary integrity by not eating the final bite of his burrito.

I was originally asked to write 150 words of praise for Amy Poehler. Unfortunately, a personal matter has forced me to deviate from this assignment. Amy, I know you are reading this. You won’t return my phone calls, e-mails or texts, and I’m fed up. In February 2011 you asked me to invest $15,000 in a ‘real estate’ opportunity you had heard about. Since then, I have heard nothing from you, and my research shows that the company, Excalibur Equity, does not even exist. I want my money back. Now. That said, I cannot say how much I admire and respect Amy Poehler.
That’s the delightful Aziz Ansari writing about his “Parks & Recreation” co-star Amy Poehler in Time’s list of 100 most influential people. Normally, this list just gives Time an excuse to let really famous people say nice and boring things about other really famous people, so +1,000 to Aziz for subverting all that. Now go watch “Parks & Rec” or I’ll hurt you.
