Life's Tough for Terrorists and Nazi Zombies...

These two videos are great for our blog, right? Life's Tough when you are stuck in airport security...Life's Tough when you're stuck in the middle of WWII (with Zombies).

But, you know what's not tough? Being an extra in sketch comedy videos. All you do is stand somewhere, eat Twizzlers, and sometimes pretend to be in a war dressed as a zombie. Which reminds me of all the times in 7th grade when my parents told me "You need to find a better use of your time other than hanging out behind that grocery store."

Really, parents? Because that year prepared me pretty well for what I do now.

See if you can spot me in either of these!

Life's Tough when you're bad at EVERYTHING...

Life's Tough when you have the most recognizable voice...

So, the Geico Guy, otherwise known as the most recognizable and comforting voice on American Television called Freedom Works to finish "his paper."

He said he was mad about racist and homophobic comments made at a Tea-Party he called them RETARDED MURDERERS (Let's be clear, I'm NOT defending the Tea Party, but I will say that it's probably not a good choice to say things like "Hey, 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' is the most crippled-hobo way to implicitly spread hatred! Only people with Polio would support a rule like this!")

Tone it down every one. This is Dan Wilbur (AKA Mr. Senior Love Daddy) telling you all to chill!

Tune in next week when James Earl Jones and Morgan Freeman prank call strangers and expect not to get caught...

Life's Tough When You Have to Ride the Subway Every Day

If you live in NYC (or are visiting), you know the horrors of the subway. It's loud, stinky, upsetting, and provides a nice icky slice of humanity. Artist Jay Shells decided to take matters in his own hands and made ten helpful subway signs for the public. Here are a few:

Visit Jay's website for all ten etiquette signs, and visit Comix for relief from subway misery!

Life's Tough when you're scared of your own shadow...

(Tangentially, it's tough when you can't watch a funny dog video without wanting to move out of NYC so you and your dog can have a bigger living room to do stupid stuff in...)

Life's Tough When You Legally Can't Use the Characters You Created....

You remember this guy from Late Night with Conan O'Brien?

Of course you do! It's the Masturbating Bear!

Well, if you go see Conan live this summer on his tour (with Comix favorite Reggie Watts opening!), you won't see the Masturbating Bear. You will instead see this guy.
Hey look, it's the Self Pleasuring Panda!!!!

NBC has locked up all of Conan's characters in copyright prison, so he's having to improvise. What other characters can we expect in the months to come?

The Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman Switch?

Drugdealbot 4000?

Or maybe Victory the Mean Canine?

Life's Tough for filmmakers

"It's the human species that's dangerous and menacing and a terrifying animal...Because humans are the ones who made this movie..."

Dear God. A number of Comix employees saw this, and it's not a joke. It's real. Several people made this. No one said no. Even when the director said "one take is enough. You were all brilliant. We'll just add more exploding birds."

I hate that when I watched the promo, I thought "It looks OK."

It's not OK. You've been forewarned...

Life's Tough for people stuck in offices...

We've all been stuck in a basement near a kitchen. I, for one, already have rickets.

...Emotional Rickets...

So. Here's terrible shit that happens outside, so we can all feel good about staying indoors.

And yet...

Kids love playing "Science." What's the problem?

Mostly, I'd be mad that our family trip was boat-gazing.

It's like a centaur...only way scarier. is a deal.

Life's Tough when you have your wisdom teeth taken out...

I remember the last time I was put under I tested a few new jokes and kept asking my doctor if he had ever read the Epic of Gilgamesh...

Life's Tough for boys...

Thus it begins.

Our parents put us in their little preconceived boxes of gender norms.

It reminds me of when my 1st grade teacher asked me what my favorite color was, and I was scared to say "hot pink" so I just said "red" and then cried like this kid...
