I toyed with the idea of writing a serious post today about how being a successful and well-rounded entrepreneur with a fun life requires big balls (or ovaries) and a stubborn determination to always improve every aspect of yourself, but then I remembered that I’m going to be playing poker with my college friends all weekend and am therefore in “dicking-off mode” more than “inspirational mode.”
So instead, I’m going to show you some of the hilarious shit I’ve found or rediscovered lately and encourage you to waste a bunch of time and be totally unproductive for a while. I mean, have those big balls and try to improve, but also take a break every once in a while.

#1 Annoying Orange
I’m late to the party on this one, but I just discovered Annoying Orange and so am going to share. If you watch the related videos on YouTube, you’ll see who he is: He’s an annoying orange, and he spends most of his time talking to other food and being obnoxious. The concept is so unfathomably stupid and such a waste of time that of course I watched many of them.
Here, he faces Jigsaw, the puppet mouthpiece for the villain in the Saw movies (or is Jigsaw the actual puppet? I never know.)
#2 Marshmallow Murder
Same concept as Annoying Orange, and the same creators. This is what happens every time you go camping.
#3 Zach Anner’s tour of Austin, Texas
If you’re willing to admit you watch Oprah, you may already know Zach because he was part of some promo a while back where she was going to give someone their own TV show. And if you do some research, you’ll also find that the evidence that said contest was rigged and that Zach should have won it is quite convincing. Either way, I’m really hoping I can talk to him for the Badass Project because he’s fucking hilarious.
All of Zach’s videos are great, so if these grab you, subscribe to his YouTube channel.
PART 1: Texas state capitol
PART 2: Mt. Bonnell
PART 3: “Keep Austin Weird” festival
#4 The spider drawing
Lastly, I ran into this years ago, but Matthew Kimberley reminded me about it again and I laughed just as hard re-reading it now.
So, I hope you have an unproductive but amusing day.
