    This is the new media sensation. Over one million YouTube views so far.

    There is no hope for humanity.

    There is hope. People, like corporations, like people, are scared of the unknown - whatever that is.

    It wasn't - even in google news that stupid "news" article made its way to prominence. But Google is going to get more audience share from that than actual news, and being for-profit Google has little choice.

    Awww..we seemed so like minded on things earlier today. :(

    I rather liked this. Maybe it wasn't as funny as she thought, and maybe she was a little punch drunk, but in these depressing times, a little laughter is needed. Plus I didn't know about this mask. Now I kinda want one. :D

    Article didn't load properly so I'm not sure if it included the fact that people are now paying $500 for that mask on eBay cause waiting for the company to make more would be too much to bear (kind of bad pun intended)

    I saw this over the weekend, and only have one question..

    Is it me, or does her hair work so well with it that it makes it an extension of Chewbacca's fur? I mean, it really does make her face more Wookie than average.

    Someone posted a video of themselves having pointless fun on the internet? MY WORLD WEARY SUPER INTELLIGENT PUT-ON CYNICISM CAN'T HANDLE THIS! I SHALL CRITICIZE HER! :mad:

    And with Kohl's giving her 10 $500 gift cards to use for anything she wants there, you really have to wonder who is laughing at whom.. ;)

    I guess I wasn't clear enough in the point I was attempting to make...

    Oh well.

    Actually, you've made it very well, and to be honest, it's refreshing to see someone on teh interwebz get more attention than a Kardashian, Kanye, Beiber, Jay-Z, and Beyonce combined.

    I thought it was 10.. I remember it being a lot of gift cards at $100 each, and some 10,000 Kohl's awards points for use there.. It may have been 5.. Either way, she's getting free **** the next time she heads there.

    Eh, it wasn't you exactly. I've seen this video in 5 different places now, and each time, it was filled with annoying internet people looking down their noses at her in the comments section. Kinda went a bit kneejerky when I saw her pop up here.

    It wasn't her I was commenting on... it was the size of her audience.

    I think that's pretty dumb. They don't care about her reaction to it. Only the fact that it got so many views so kohls can get some free publicity.

    If someone else were to post a same video with a similar reaction no one would care. It's all just spontaneity.

    I dunno. She ain't what I'd call high brow entertainment, but there's something about her that's just infectiously funny.

    What's wrong with the amount of people watching her videos?

    It was funny and made me and others laugh...There are better things to weep for humanity on.

    After reading this, I couldn't help wondering what an internet nose would look like. The internet has sockets and ports, servers and clients, backhauls and frontends, but I've yet to see a nose. I imagine an internet nose would be made of either copper or glass fiber, and be thin and spiky. If you punched it you'd get splinters. That'd be more annoying than if it were somewhat spherical and squishy.

    Then I started wondering what kneejerky would taste like. I've elk jerky and venison jerky, and they were both terrific. I suppose it might be scraped up a bit, because that's what happens to knees a lot.

    Then I wondered whether an internet nose would be able to smell kneejerky being made in a smoker.
