Just 4 Fun

Just like the name suggests…this is the corner of my blog world where laughter and giggles abound!  Funny stories, videos, images, games, etc…and if you’ve got an idea or resource of your own (or one you came across), lemme know and I’ll post it…let’s spread the fun around!

 

Need a Little Inspiration?

If you like Penguins…and games…you’ll waste countless hours here that you’ll never be able to get back!

 

FUN SITES

Photofunia– have some fun with your photos with the easy to crop photo feature site
Don’t Be That Guy– awkward humor that puts new meaning in the term “hey man…don’t be that guy!”
Bored.com– cheesy flash games to help pass the time
JibJab– lots of cool features for sending cards, invites, creating pics, vids…using your face with a celeb background!
Bigpoint– wide range of free online game with pretty decent graphics (you have to register, but it’s free!)

MALK!  NEW
From the creative mind of Julian Smith…it’s like an episode of Seinfeld meets Twilight Zone…

OK-Go!  
Not only do these guys come up with some pretty innovative and original songs, but they also have some way cool creative videos too.  It took 4 months of set-up and 4 days of shooting & recording to get ‘er done!

JIM VS. DWIGHT
Like pretty much everyone else in the known universe, I too am a fan of The Office!  Enjoy a few minutes of some classic pranks featuring Jim Halpert and Dwight Schrute.

MAKEY-MAKEY  
I saw this video recently and thought of all the cool possibilities you could use this for with kids and youth games.  It’s an invention from a couple MIT grads that created a company called Makey Makey and their vision is to help everyone become an inventor!  Check them out!
 

A BRIEF HISTORY OF VIDEO GAMES  
An abridged history of video games in under three minutes that was made using only sounds, music and video from the actual video games themselves!  Where was NHL Slapshot 2010??

AVERAGE’ – AMERICA’S MOST POPULAR CLOTHING LINE
I’m not sure if this video is more funny, or tragically true for the majority of man-culture!  You decide…

DR. WIKIHOW: HOW TO REMOVE A WEDGIE  
My brother in-law makes a guest appearance on Just 4 Fun with helpful (and necessary!) instructions on how to take care of those troublesome moments we all get in life…wedgies (or as I like to call them…Hungry Bum!).
 

SCARY MARY  
What if Mary Poppins, that classic family movie, was actually a horror flick…and not the funny, outrageous musical we all grew up watching as a kid?
 

BUILD YOUR OWN REAL LIFE ANGRY BIRDS GAME!  
Holy cow, what a great and creative idea from the folks @ stuffyoucanuse & Shine Middle School ministry @ The Chapel at Crosspoint in Getzville, NY.  If you want to know how they built it, check it out!


THE DOG TEASER  

I’m sure you’ve heard of the legendary Dog Whisperer…now meet the man who can train & tease his dogs on voice command! You’ll have to check out his other animal voice-overs…some people just have too much time!

…LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW  
There are funny YouTube videos…and there’s visually stunning, amazing and awe-inspiring YouTube videos. This video would fall in the latter category!


KEN BLOCK’S GYMKHANA STUNT TRACK
  
Maybe the most creative stunt driving clip I’ve ever seen!  Shot south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas, the 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals!  And for an added bonus…here’s another Ken Block clip!


TRIPP & TYLER IN WE WERE SOLDIERS     

The fellas at Don’t Be That Guy are up to their fun with this collection of ‘deleted’ scenes!

GOOGLE THE HEIMLICH  
Julian Smith has some pretty sweet vids to make you chuckle…here’s just one to tickle your funny bone!


THE MOST INNOVATIVE CHRISTMAS CARD EVER?  
What happens when you take 4000 youth workers, smart phones & cameras, a Dave Crowder Band concert and one pretty cool idea?


THE PEOPLE OF WALMART
Have you ever found yourself shopping at Walmart, and then for some strange reason, just paused to take in the atmosphere around you?  It’s no secret that Walmart, like many retail outlets, attracts some pretty ‘interesting’ characters, but maybe…just maybe…Walmart might rank at the top of drawing ‘all-walks-of-life’ folks!  How could this video have even half the views that Rebecca Black got for Friday?  This song/vid is pure genius!!


CARPET BALL
here’s a random vid on the great game of carpet ball…plus a link to learn everything you need to know about this classis game, as well as how to make your very own table for under $130!

PERSPECTIVE IS EVERYTHING!
We all know we live in a culture that prides itself in freedom of perspective and interpretation…but have you ever found yourself in a conversation like this?  What ever happened to the classics like Abbott & Costello?


Parenting Insight from comedian Tim Hawkins
 

David & Goliath: The Real Story?- thanks to my friends @ Saddleback for this treat!

A very funny clip with prankster Kenny ‘K-Strass’ Strasser the Yo-Yo pro!  This guy gained notoriety when he went to a bunch of local news stations claiming to be part of a group touring schools…maybe you can inquire about bringing Kenny to your school!


HOW’S YOUR FOCUS?
Do you consider yourself to be an observant person?  If so, you’ll wanna check this vid out…and pay attention…maybe this switch has happened to you?
