Humor in Michigan

Make us laugh

How Did We Miss This?

Michiganian Steven Crowder is great for a laugh from time to time.

Way back when ..  Or at least in April of this year, Crowder produced this Schoolhouse Rock parody.  Demonstrating the absurdity of our convening culture with shock humor, Crowder clearly paints a picture of the current social shredding at work.

The capitol steps used in this render it a Michigan worthy piece.

Put the glass of milk down and enjoy.

Liberalocks & The Three Bears

Once upon a time, there was a little Michigan Millennial Bohemian named Liberalocks.  She  went for a walk in the  suburbs near the state capitol (Okemos).  Pretty soon, she came upon a house.  She knocked and, when no one answered, she walked right in because she had been taught to be entitled.

At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of gluten free porridge.  Liberalocks was hungry, and without hesitation or consideration for other people’s property, tasted the porridge from the first bowl.

“This gluten free porridge is too hot!” she exclaimed. “How dare someone leave such a hazard lying around! Perhaps I call an agency about this?  There must certainly be a law!”

Then, she tasted the gluten free porridge from the second bowl.

“This porridge is too cold,” she said “It’s just not fair!  There are standards for food service in this country! And how did my dreadlocks fall into it?!”

Inside Job

Just order the damned happy meal and be quiet.

Customer:     A Whopper with cheese please

BK Guy:    I think you would like the Big Mac better.

Customer:     Big Mac? Isn’t that McD’s?

BK Guy:    Yes.  They are quite good too.

Customer:     Is this BK selling Big Macs now for the McD’s next door?

BK Guy:    Oh.. Not really, but I am.  I just think that is a better choice.

Customer:     But you work here at BK?

BK Guy:    For about 60 years. Yessiree.

Help Trump Build The Wall – A Divertere

The Michigan Review sent a couple over into enemy lines.

Destination:  A Bernie Sanders rally, AND Ohio State University.  The result is hilarious.  God bless the guy @02:18  shoveling out for ‘the cause.’

That’s Gonna Hurt.

It's 'count day!' - This won't take long.

The joy of living in the hinterland!

Snow days are wonderful if you are somewhere between the ages of 5 and 18. However, when the buck is delivered based on attendance for the district?

count-day

D’oh!

(PS: count day will be tomorrow)

Pure Michigan D’Oh!

Sometimes our community promoters try just a little too hard.

Or not.

In Bay City, there was the contest which celebrated its 150 year anniversary. Business owners were probably told that hundreds and maybe thousands of folks would be flocking in and around to party down.  Whoo hoo! Way to go marketing team!

The contest had one winner.  It also had only one entry.

A man has won prizes worth nearly $2,000 after being the only person to enter a contest to celebrate a Michigan city’s 150th anniversary.

MLive reports that Taylor Langstaff had to do 25 activities in the Bay City area and stamp them off on a “passport” to win the prizes. ..

..Because Langstaff was the only entrant, he also received second through 10th place winner prizes.

Did I already say “Way to go marketing team!?”

Pure Michigan student creativity unfolding before our eyes.

sotsprogramcoverdesigncontest_cropHey kids, get your art skillz on!

The Michigan State of the State address by governor Rick Snyder is coming soon!  You can watch him get away with breaking the law, tell little white lies (or little dark ones), and learn how much you are already in debt in under two hours!  Gosh, what a treat! (or a trick)

But wait, there is more!

From the Michigan State Department of Propaganda comes a new contest: Design The State of the State Program Cover!

“Students can submit their designs today through Jan. 3. The top five designs – judged by their creativity and originality – will be announced through social media on Jan. 5 and posted on Snyder’s Facebook page. The winning design will be determined by which one receives the most ‘Likes’ on Facebook by the end of the day on Jan. 8.”

Gosh what fun!

To make it easier for our precious snowflakes, here is what the winning entry should look like.
