TikToks Guaranteed To Provide Sweet Relief From The Dumpster-Fire This World Has Become

TikToks Guaranteed To Provide Sweet Relief From The Dumpster-Fire This World Has Become

TIKTOK HAS COMEDY CONTENT Y’ALL!

And I’m here to highlight the three funniest accounts I’ve come across this week: Rich Black Guy, Not Even Emily, and Ryan Beard.

The reason you may not have discovered these accounts on your own is because TikTok serves as a platform for A LOT of interests (dance tutorials, cooking recipes, dismantling misinformation, etc) so it can be really time-consuming to wade through all that content to find the comedy accounts you’re actually interested in watching.

BUT HAVE NO FEAR – I AM HERE TO HELP!

Hi, I’m Kat – I have 1.5M followers on TikTok and spend more time scrolling TikTok than I do engaging in face-to-face human interactions (I’d blame quarantine, but I was like this prior to the pandemic). If you like Funny Or Die, I think you’ll LOVE these three TikTok accounts!

PLUS – TikTok’s algorithm is incredibly responsive, so when you engage with these recommended accounts, TikTok will serve you more comedy-related videos!

SO BASICALLY, even if you don’t like the TikTok accounts I recommend (which btw, ouch), you watching these videos will make your TikTok algorithm realize, “hey, this person came here for funny videos,” which will result in TikTok showing you more funny videos. BOOM – it’s a win-win for everyone!

Anyway – here are this week’s Highlighted TikTok Creators:


Rich Black Guy • 1.8M followers (@RichBlackGuy)

Though “Rich Black Guy” isn’t actually “rich” (yet!) his character-driven videos are! His most viral (and funny) videos include the worst baby name you can give your child during a global pandemic, personifying the four seasons and having them debate which of them is superior, and comedically explaining different types of sexuality though soda.


Not Even Emily • 487K followers (@not.even.emily)

Not Even Emily, a former star on the 6-second video app Vine, has moved to TikTok and used the additional 53 seconds the app provides per video to take her oddball, straight-to-camera content to a whole new level. Whether she’s satirizing that guy at the party who brought a guitar, mistaking Waluigi for a porn star, or misunderstanding a phrase so badly she ruins a family vacation – her content will keep you thoroughly entertained.


Ryan Beard • 1.8M followers (@ryanbeardofficial)

If you’re cynical (but still have a sense of humor!) you’re going to love Ryan Beardman. He is the king of topical humor and musical sketch comedy, and his ongoing bits including Un-Montival Mondays, Woke Wednesdays, and Fit Fridays will give you the consistency and laughter your life needs in a time where the world is falling apart.


Like my TikTok recommendations? Cool. Got better ones? Awesome! If there’s a TikTok account you think FOD should feature, send it my way: kat@funnyordie.com

Mr. B for #BunnyButtFriday

This tunnel has been in the pen for years and years, but I never saw him use it. Now I’ve seen him do this several times, finding it relatively easily, for a blind bunny. 
I wonder if since he’s solo now, and Ethel’s not there to lean against him, the smaller space gives him some comfort.

George Kareman’s Telenovela Acting Reel

George Kareman: famous Hollywood actor, regular FOD contributor and… Telenovela star!?

That’s right! Prior to his big-screen fame, before his days as one of the Long Haired Businessman, and preceding his role as one of the Two Guys Who Hate Each Other, he was a Spanish Soap Opera star!

In the Telenovela Universe, George Kareman has done it all. He’s…

  • Accidentally walked in on a passionate make-out session in Tierra Del Fuego (“Land of Fire”),
  • Played an extremely violet (yet extremely religious) figure in Soy Moses (“I am Moses”)
  • Acted as a sexy bad-boy who could (and also… couldn’t?!) speak Spanish in Extranjero (“Foreigner”)
  • Paid homage to the infamous (and highly meme’d) Cuidado con el ángel car accident scene in El Viejo Y El Debil (“The Old And The Week”)
  • Done a live action take on Oswaldo.
  • Played into every Telenovela stereotype in Balcones del Pacifico (“Pacific Balconies”)

So enjoy George Kareman’s Telenovela Acting Reel… you’re in for a reel treat.

Johnno And Michael Try To Win Their Girlfriends Back

Johnno And Michael Try To Win Their Girlfriends Back

Ah yes, the ionic boombox motif – the surefire way to win back your girlfriend in the 80s.

… but it isn’t the 80s anymore and women can’t been “won” – so Johnno and Michael are going to have to do a lot more than lift a radio over their heads to impress Cindy and Rita.

In the episode of Johnno And Michael Try, Johnno tries to convince Cindy to give him a second chance while Michael tries to convince Rita (Cindy’s best friend) to give him any chance at all.

The two try every 80s romcom trick in the book to prove their affection, including:

  • Showing up at Cindy and Rita’s apartment unannounced and violating local noise pollution ordinances by blasting 80s music on an arcaic boombox
  • Making dope mix tapes (how did they even find a cassette tape!?)
  • Singing an impromptu freestyle love song to the beat of Taylor Dayne’s “Tell It To My Heart” (great in the movies, awful in real life)

Though the chances of Johnno AND Michael being successful at their romantic endeavor is slim to none, lets imagine it did work out – THE DOUBLE DATES WOULD BE EPIC! They could coordinate dinners, anniversary gifts – THE ROMANTIC POSSIBILITIES WOULD BE ENDLESS!

Johnno and Michael Try A Sleepover 

Johnno and Michael Try A Sleepover 

“Adult sleepover” currently means having your significant other over – why can’t we expand the concept of “adult sleepovers” to include our friends!?

AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT JOHNNO AND MICHAEL ARE DOING – BREAKING SOCIETAL EXPECTATIONS AND HAVING A SLEEPOVER!!

At first, Johnno and Michael’s sleepover is literally the BEST sleepover: outdoor water activities, prank phone calls, pillow fights – THE SLEEPOVER ACTIVITY POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS FOR THIS DUO!!

However, this sleepover takes a weird turn when an almost-creepy ghost shows up. You’d think this would be horrifying (and for a moment, it kinda is!), but it turns out the ghost is just a stranger who died outside the apartment and now “haunts” the apartment by complaining about car insurance premiums and pretending to be Johnno’s girlfriend.

The scariest part of all this though… IS JOHNNO LETS THE GHOST BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY IN A RELATIONSHIP!!

Don’t do that Johnno! Even in the afterlife, you should never lead a woman on because there will be dire consequences!!

Ethel got her wings

Last Wednesday, I was going though the bunnies’ morning ritual and noticed Ethel seemed a little off. When I opened the pen gate, she usually bolts for her pellets (sometimes between the wall and a row of boxes, sometimes just a beeline “out in the open”). That morning she hesitated a little and didn’t quite follow a straight line, but she got there and started eating.

A couple of minutes later, before she finished, she stepped away from her bowl and started seizing. You could see the fear in her eyes. I called for DrMrsBunnyMom and tried to settle Ethel, as if I had a clue what I should do.

After several seconds of writhing and flopping around the floor, “running” on her side against the wall trying to twist upright, she managed to right herself, and lay awkwardly splay-legged, breathing very heavily for a few minutes.

Ethel got her wings
Whenever something happens with the bunnies,
I try to snap pictures to show the vet.
We were on the phone with the vet’s office. Pandemic protocol is curbside service; they come get your pet for the exam. The vet discusses the results with you when they return your furbaby. The practice was booked. We made an appointment – and then…
THIS is the behavior Ethel exhibited – perfectly normal!

Coordinated hopping.
Objective in sight.
Target acquired.
Typical Ethel – finished her breakfast and heads directly over to Mr. B to see what she can scarf from his breakfast bowl.
The day before, Ethel was zooming around at top speed, binkying, and cutting tight corners. She seemed to have retained her youthful exuberance and energy, whereas Bunya started slowing down years ago.

WTH, Ethel, why are you scaring the poops out of the humans!?
We booked the next available exam time, on Friday. For the rest of Wednesday, all of Thursday and Friday morning, Ethel was fine and her behavior was pure Ethel – right down to hanging out by my recliner, staring at me for treats all evening. To Ethel, no treat tasted as good as the one she would snatch out of Bunya’s mouth. (He tried to adapt by instantly turning 90 degrees away from Ethel as soon as he sunk his teeth into his treat, but she would run circles around him.)

Friday morning, DrMrsBunnyMom took Ethel and Bunya in their carrier for the appointment (if you have read this blog with any regularity, you know we always take the bunnies together to help maintain their bond). The nurse carried them inside for her appointment. The doctor heard Ethel seizing again in the carrier as they were brought in. As he went to get her, Ethel passed.

Ethel got her wings

Ethel was almost 10-1/2 and still spunky. Bunya is over 12-1/2 and started slowing down years ago. We didn’t particularly talk about it but we both thought he would pass first. You learn in estate planning, people don’t always die in the order you think they will.

Now we wonder how Bunya will get along without her. He can’t see. We don’t think Ethel could hear, but it may have been she didn’t listen. When she would come begging for treats – thumping, racing around my chair or whatever to get my attention – I’d ask her “Where’s your boyfriend?”

I swear, lately, she would go back in their pen where he would be snoozing in their favorite hidey box, rouse him, and lead him out so I would give them both treats. Bunnies are smart. We would tease Ethel sometimes about where did she leave her brain cell, but then she would demonstrate some brilliance, like when she figured out how to get past the bunny barrier. I remember one morning after we had the trio, I came to feed them; Bunya and Lucy were in their pen – Ethel was running around like what’s up! She was tiny enough to fit through the pen fence.

Bunya was our first bunny. He was a bachelor for a couple of years. We learned about bunnies and found GHRS. We added sisters Lucy & Ethel (about 6 months old or so at the time), adopted from the Georgia House Rabbit Society to form our bonded trio. We lost Lucy suddenly almost exactly 5 years ago (read about Lucy here).

Ethel got her wings

And now old man Bunya is alone again. We will continue to give him lots of love, but we are all missing Miss Ethel.

Parties are great UNTIL THE PERSON YOU HATE SHOWS UP

Parties are great UNTIL THE PERSON YOU HATE SHOWS UP

Ew. That person you absolutely hate just showed up at the party.

But here’s the thing… do you really hate this person? I mean, if you really didn’t like this person, wouldn’t you just – I dunno – ignore them? Maybe like – NOT talk to them?

Maybe the reason you hate this person is because you hate yourself?

And maybe this person you hate reminds you of you?

-and maaaybe you’ve convinced yourself that tearing them will somehow fix your flaws?

OR

Maybe this person you hate just genuinely sucks and, because of how your friend group operates, you’re forced to engage with this awful person occasionally.

WELL EITHER OF THE ABOVE COULD BE TRUE in this episode of Two Guys Who Hate Each Other: Dan and George (who, as the title suggests, hate each other) cross paths at a party, and well – they’ve just had it with each other. They don’t hold back. They attack everything about each other until the two literally start attacking each other. Super awkward for everyone at the party, but super entertaining for us.

Is anyone else reminded of the popular cartoon Tom and Jerry when they watch Two Guys Who Hate Each Other?

There were a lot of fan theories that Tom and Jerry actually liked each other and that they chased each other around…. just for fun. Personally, I wouldn’t chase someone I hated for over 100 episodes, but someone I love? I’d chase them forever baby.

Perhaps Dan and George… don’t actually hate each other? Maybe they just enjoy roasting each other because, sometimes teasing someone that will tease you back is really fun? Maybe we should rename this series Two Guys Who Like Each Other But Like Being Mean To Each Other So From An Outside Perspective It Looks Like These Two Guys Hate Each Other?

Idk, maybe we’re overthinking this, but go watch every episode of Two Guys Who Hate Each Other and see for yourself which theory you think is true:

Ode to Masks

Ode to Masks

AN ODE TO MASKS

Oh masks, oh masks,

Cute little face flaps

No bigger than a pigeon.

You protect me from diseases,

And allow me cover my unattractive face.

And for that

I want to thank you.

Oh masks, oh masks,

Jockstraps for the face.

A guy I went to high school with,

Thinks you are a hoax.

He is a Facebook incel now.

He thinks he knows better than doctors,

But once drank an entire bottle of mayonnaise

Just to get a laugh

Oh masks, oh masks

Why won’t people keep you on?

The other day,

A woman standing in front of me,

In line at the supermarket,

Removed hers just to cough,

And then put it back on…

Oh masks oh masks

Your elastic straps,

Are like workouts bands for my ears.

I have two muscular ears now,

Powerful like bodybuilders.

And for that I want to thank you

Oh masks, oh masks,

Thin strips of cloth

You can get designs printed on them

I had one custom made

That says

“I hate humanity” on it. (This line we don’t have to write out…cause we’ll have I hate humanity written on the mask)

People compliment me on the street

If I mass produce them.

I might make enough money

To buy myself an industrial pop corn maker

Oh masks, Oh masks.

Face diapers that cover up my bad breath

Cloaks for my adult acne

A new way to advertise my favorite brands across my mouth

Cheap and easy Street Fighter costumes

INDICATORS OF SELFLESSNESS

And for that…I want to thank You.

We got to watch DRUNK BUS: the coming-of-age comedy that would’ve premiered at SXSW (EXCLUSIVE CLIP)

Due to COVID-19, South By Southwest, along with many other festivals across the world, was not able to hold its in-person festival this year, and while some of its shorts and features opted for temporary virtual homes, many of these gems are still yet-to-be-released to wider distribution.

DRUNK BUS, the debut feature comedy from frequent Funny Or Die collaborators and contributors Ghost & Cow (Brandon LaGanke and John Carlucci), is one of those gems. Written by Chris Molinaro, It stars Charlie Tahan (Ozark) and New York comedy keystone Dave Hill, with an amazing cameo from a former Saturday Night Live cast member (I won’t ruin the surprise, sorry). It’s a hilarious and heartfelt look at the paralyzing post-college years of Michael (Tehan), who is stuck driving the Kent Institute of Technology late night campus shuttle for drunk college kids. His ex-girlfriend moved to New York, and he… didn’t.

We got to watch DRUNK BUS: the coming-of-age comedy that would’ve premiered at SXSW (EXCLUSIVE CLIP)

After this surprisingly somewhat-dangerous gig lands him a black eye, he befriends his new security detail, Pineapple (Pineapple Tangaroa as himself). The unlikely friendship of two polar opposites (believe it or not, this shy scrawny white virgin hasn’t led the same life as this giant samoan with tattoos all over his face) serves as the backbone of this part buddy comedy, part road movie, part coming-of-age tale. It’s full of great bits, and the perfect hit of that nostalgic sense of post-college adventure from when the whole world is in front of you, and every night is somehow simultaneously different and the same.

In addition to the great comedic set pieces that come with an ever-changing population of drunk college kids on a bus, this movie nails the types of characters we somehow all met in college, and never met before nor since then. Did we imagine them? Pineapple seems to fearlessly march to the beat of his own drum, as if the weirdest kid in the room is also the adult in the room. Devo Ted is the weed dealer obsessed with Devo who makes you stay for bagel bites and has a room full of dynamite in his apartment (the weed dealer on my college campus had a sword collection and a DIY mini moat that ran throughout his apartment). Fred (first introduced in voice only – a voice you will certainly recognize) is Michaels cringey boss who Michael will undoubtedly become if he doesn’t get his shit together.

We got to watch DRUNK BUS: the coming-of-age comedy that would’ve premiered at SXSW (EXCLUSIVE CLIP)

And then there’s the supporting cast of ridiculous college kids and locals that really give this story its rich depth and authenticity – you get the sense that when they first started writing this, there was a very different (lame) version of this movie that they could have made – they picked the right direction at the fork in the road and floored it. Fantastic performances from the supporting cast of Pineapple Tangaroa, Kara Hayward, Zach Cherry, Tonatiuh Elizarraraz, Sarah Mezzanotte, and a cameo from Frank Iero (yes, that Frank Iero, of My Chemical Romance) round out the world to stick the landing of this sharp vision from LaGanke and Carlucci.

This movie is a fun party we’ll all hopefully be invited to soon. In the meantime, check out this clip!

“The Rona” Explained with Alzo Slade

“The Rona” Explained with Alzo Slade

Remember when the Rona first hit and people were fighting over toilet paper? Or in a house with nothing to do but hang out with friends online? Or watch another streaming show that you can’t believe you’re watching (but you’re still watching)?

Then things erupted across the world after the police killing of George Floyd. Then states started opening their doors for business as if the Rona just disappeared – but guess what?The Rona is still here and this is what it looks like:

Look at this woman in the grocery store. She ain’t wearing a mask. And then this dude without a mask invades her body bubble (talking waaay too close). He has the Rona and she’s about to get.

The Rona usually slides in through the nose, mouth and the eyes. It goes to the throat and lungs where there’s a whole bunch of cells that line the walls of our respiratory system. This is where the Rona sets up shop, turning these cells into a virus factory.

You see, healthy cells have a machinery to reproduce themselves but when the Rona comes through, it punks the cell into using this machine to make more viruses. It makes so many that it gets bloated and dies. When that cell dies, all those viruses are released into the body to repeat this savage process on other healthy cells. This happens over and over – leaving a whole lot of dead cells and Rona viruses in our lungs.

The Rona is putting in work, but at this point, we’re still hanging out and kicking it because there are no symptoms yet. For the Rona, this is just the incubation period. It takes anywhere from two to 14 days after the virus has set up shop for symptoms to show. It’s usually a sore throat to start because that’s where the virus first camps out. By this time your body may be recognizing that something ain’t right, and your body starts to fight a little bit. Viruses don’t like heat, so your body raises the temperature. That’s your fever. The coughing and sneezing is your body trying to dislodge the virus and kick it out. At this stage, the Rona is in a group infecting all the healthy cells it can find, but as these cells are dying, they send a message to the immune system, “Dude, we are catching up beat down. Somebody send some help, please.”

Now the immune system kicks into gear and they’re ready to fight. They come in and start blowing stuff up, trying to kill the infected cells because they’re the ones making all the viruses. The problem is they’re not just killing the infected cells – they’re killing the healthy ones too. More lung cells are dying, this triggers a storm of immune cells that show up and wreak havoc causing more damage. Now they’re all these dead cells floating around in your lungs making it hard to breathe. The battle causes inflammation and that’s painful.

As bad as this sounds, roughly eight out of 10 people will survive this stage and be fine. The immune system gets their act together, wins the war and recovery begins. In severe cases though, the immune system can’t figure it out and the lungs are all messed up from the fight. Now a ventilator is needed to do what the lungs can’t do any more. With the lungs are jacked up, oxygen flow to other organs ain’t really happening and the body begins to shut down.

I know this sounds pretty bad and it is, but it doesn’t have to be.

  • If you’ve been out touching all sorts of stuff, don’t touch your face until you’ve washed your hand. Rona doesn’t like soap and water.
  • If you have to be out wear something over your face, a mask or a bandana it ain’t foolproof, but it’s better than being face naked.
  • If you’re sick but don’t know it – wearing a mask makes it harder for you to spread the Rona. Especially that someone who speaks with those strong C’s, T’s and P’s your mask will help protect you from the Rona filled spit droplets.

Keep distance between you and other people with that six-foot radius body bubble. And if you don’t need groceries and it’s not an emergency, stay your ass at home.

It’s Will Ferrell’s Birthday!

There are a plethora of holidays and nationally observed events that pepper our calendars each year, and that number is only growing as things like National Talk Like A Pirate Day, Pizza Day, and Hug Your Dog Day show up on social media more and more frequently. Some might even say there are too many days of festivity at this point. Not me though. I, for one, believe that talking like a pirate is absolutely worth celebrating. In fact, there are a few annual occasions that we as a country have been severely neglecting for far too long. Days that apparently don’t warrant a day off work or even a nationwide nod, and I’m sick of it. Days like today, the most important of should-be holidays:

WILL FERRELL’S BIRTHDAY.

It’s Will Ferrell’s Birthday!

It’s Will Ferrell’s Birthday!

WHY are we not all celebrating with parades?? Or fireworks??? Or the unveiling of a 30-foot tall bronze statue??? Maybe that’s a little bit much but COME ON, THERE SHOULD AT LEAST BE FIREWORKS.

It’s Will Ferrell’s Birthday!

It’s Will Ferrell’s Birthday!

On this day in 1967, Will Ferrell, the King of jazz flute, the man who brought Funny Or Die into existence 12 years ago, was born. Although legend has it that he wasn’t actually born, rather he emerged from the sea, and was carried to the shores of California by a pair of dolphins, completely naked, glistening like the dolphins upon which he rode, already fully grown. The day this glorious, hauntingly beautiful, dangerously sensual and tender man first stepped foot on the sands of this country marked the start of his comedic legacy, which is the gift that fortunately for all of us, just keeps on giving.

You know him from iconic shows like SNL and blockbusters like Step Brothers and Talladega Nights, but you can enjoy also enjoy Will’s velvety voice without a screen, delivered right into your ear holes with the Ron Burgundy Podcast where he talks with some of the biggest names in Hollywood and beyond. Each episode is nicely compiled into one Funny Or Die page right here — so go forth and BINGE.


Now, I ask you to remove your hats as we celebrate Will Ferrell’s birthday in the most fitting way possible — by looking back on some of his best work with Funny Or Die.

Happy birthday, Will!

Johnno and Michael Try A Career Day

Johnno and Michael Try A Career Day

Career Day has a reputation for being notoriously underwhelming.

Most schools don’t have the time or resources to provide a comprehensive career day because most schools in the United States are so devastatingly underfunded, so most career days are a mixed bag of well-intentioned volunteers from local and corporate businesses who will give you their two cents how how to get a job while low-key pitching you on applying to their company. This is totally a step in the right direction, but students definitely need more.

LUCKY – JOHNNO AND MICHAEL ARE DOING THEIR OWN CARRER DAY AND PLAN TO BE TOTALLY HONEST ABOUT HOW BRUTAL PURSUING YOUR DREAMS CAN BE. No toxic positivity here folks – just Johnno and Michael sharing the secrets on how to be a successful, bookable actor while also being honest about how much (and how hard) you will fail before you see any amount of success. It ain’t glamours – but hey, at least you’re failing at doing what you love instead of failing (or being mildly successful) at something you hate!

A note from FOD: please don’t just rely solely on your school’s career day (or Johnno and Michael’s career day) to dictate your career path – use the Internet, your friends, and your family as a resource. Make yourself personally responsible for your own success so that, years later, you’re not one of those people who blames everyone around them for being unhappy.

ABOUT JOHNNO AND MICHAEL TRY

In this series, Johnno and Michael try things. The two aren’t always successful and (often) hilariously fail, but hey – at least they’re having fun!

If You Hate Someone This Much, You Probably Need Therapy

If You Hate Someone This Much, You Probably Need Therapy

The only thing better than making someone’s day better is totally ruining the day of someone you hate.

In this episode of Two Guys Who Hate Each Other, Dan and George (who, as the title suggests, hate each other) cross paths while Dan is on a break and George is en route to a date. They both seem to be having a pretty good day… until they see each other and decide to destroy and drain each other’s sense of happiness.

You may be wondering: what happened between George and Dan to fuel their hatred for each other? Idk, but we’re pretty sure that the two have unresolved trauma that, instead of dealing with it, they’ve chosen to redirect that blind, sarcastic, passive-aggressive rage onto each other.

But until Dan and George figure this out (and seek out the help they both desperately need), we’re gonna sit back and watch them (hilariously) unleash their trauma-fueled anguish on each other.

Welcoming The New Kid

Welcoming The New Kid

Luckily, you have Caleb Hearon showing you around!

Will he show you where your classes are? Probably not.

-but will he give you the tea you need on all the high school cliques!? HELL YEAH!!


THE HIGH SCHOOL CLIQUES (According To Caleb Hearon)

  • The hot, sporty guys: they secretly have hearts of gold, but don’t mistake their kindness for bisexuality.
  • The theater kids: they’re always harmonizing, and it kind of has a horny energy to it.
  • The white kids that are really into Japanese culture: nobody can prove that it’s problematic (but Caleb is really trying to)
  • The girl’s softball team: before you ask – no they’re not all lesbians… yet.
  • The student council kids: school spirit is their life because they haven’t figured out who they really are yet.
  • David Marmalade: He killed somebody last summer… but he’s so cute.
  • The Young Republicans: they’re exhausting.
  • The yearbook staff: An insane thing to have a power trip about, but they find a way.
  • The kids that abuse marijuana drugs: THEY’RE GOING TO HELL… lol, jk!
  • Patricia Marsden: has a horrible attitude and everybody’s afraid of her… but she’s going ti win prom queen
  • The Young Democrats: they’re annoying in their own way.
  • The football guys & the football guys with really intense dads: Big energy difference… you can tell.

You Can’t Run Away From Your Problems (Or The Person You Hate)

You Can’t Run Away From Your Problems (Or The Person You Hate)

Cardio will get your heart pumping, but so will arguing with someone you hate (and the latter is WAY easier AND much more entertaining).

In this episode of Two Guys Who Hate Each Other, Dan and George (who, as the title suggests, hate each other) accidentally, um, “run” into each other while they’re both out jogging.

Is Dan and George’s sarcastic exchanges entertaining? lol, yes!

Is it bad that these two make each other so angry that it is likely impacting their blood pressure and mental health? Kinda.

But is it great they both exercising to counteract the above? HELL YEAH
