White Female Gangsta Bloggas

I laughed, I cried, I thought, "Chris Baggott and his staff have too much time on their hands."

A little video by Jess Wehner and Kristen Raves of Compendium Blogware, spoofing SNL's Lazy Sunday. For those of you outside our fair city, the video was shot in Compendium offices and in downtown Indianapolis on the Circle.

  1. It was a funny video!

    It was done with a $100 Flip camera and didn't interrupt any work hours. Additionally, the team actually had Kristen's husband mix it up. Total cost?

    $0!

    And... it was a surprise internal to the company! It wasn't even a premeditated viral marketing video - just a couple of the Client Success Managers having some fun.

    Pretty cool! Thanks for premiering it on Laughing Stalk!

  2. Pretty funny! And to think I think I just met them! Funny stuff. But please just stick to blogging in the future.

  3. I have to admit that these two women have some great rhythm and were more than willing to put themselves out into unsafe territories. I certainly could never do any power rapping. While I have rhythm, I'd be more of the beat poet/Tom Waits type of rapper.

    "Crest fallen laptop in an old cafe
    Never slept with a dream before he had to go away
    There's a post in my head
    And I just bought a latte
    Don't worry about the deadlines
    In the cold cold ground"

AYFKMWTS?! FBI Creates 88 Page Twitter Slang Guide

TFBIHCAEEPTSD.

Did you get that? It's an acronym. Web slang. It's how all the teens and young people are texting with their tweeters and Facer-books on their cellular doodads.

It stands for "The FBI has created an eighty-eight page Twitter slang dictionary."

See, you would have known that if you had the FBI's 88 page Twitter slang dictionary.

Eighty-eight pages! Of slang! AYFKMWTS?! (Are you f***ing kidding me with this s***?! That's actually how they spell it in the guide, asterisks and everything. You know, in case the gun-toting agents who catch mobsters and international terrorists get offended by salty language.)

I didn't even know there were 88 Twitter acronyms, let alone enough acronyms to fill 88 pieces of paper.

The FBI needs to be good at Twitter because they're reading everyone's tweets to see if anyone is planning any illegal activities. Because that's what terrorists do — plan their terroristic activities publicly, as if they were…

Understanding 7 Different Types of Humor

One of my pet peeves is when people say they have a "dry" sense of humor, without actually understanding what it actually means.

"Dry" humor is not just any old type of humor. It's not violent, not off-color, not macabre or dark.

Basically, dry humor is that deadpan style of humor. It's the not-very-funny joke your uncle the cost analysis accountant tells. It's Bob Newhart, Steven Wright, or Jason Bateman in Arrested Development.

It is not, for the love of GOD, people, the Black Knight scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I swear, if anyone says Monty Python is "dry humor" is going to get a smack.

Here are some other types of comedy you may have heard and are just tossing around, willy-nilly.

Farce: Exaggerated comedy. Characters in a farce get themselves in an unlikely or improbable situation that takes a lot of footwork and fast talking to get out of. The play "The Foreigner" is an example of a farce, as are many of the Jeeves &…

What Are They Thinking? The Beloit College Mindset List

Every year at this time, the staff at Beloit College send out their new student Mindset List as a way to make everyone clutch their chest and feel the cold hand of death.

This list was originally created and shared with their faculty each year, so the faculty would understand what some of their own cultural touchstones might mean, or not mean, to the incoming freshmen. They also wanted the freshmen to know it was not cool to refer to '80s music as "Oldies."

This year's incoming Beloit freshmen are typically 18 years old, born in 1999. John F. Kennedy Jr. died that year, as did Stanley Kubrick and Gene Siskel. And so did my hope for a society that sought artistic and intellectual pursuits for the betterment of all humanity. Although it may have actually died when I heard about this year's Emoji Movie.

Before I throw my hands up in despair, here are a few items from the Mindset list for the class of 2021.

They're the last class to be born in the 1900s, and are t…
