dopamine

I don't do a lot of re-posting on here, but this is the funniest thing I've ever seen. It really is.

Wow, I couldn't even finish watching, it was just so ridiculous.

Nicholas said...

... you know, I used to boggle at the ceaseless critiques leveled at Fox News for its complete lack of quality. Having never watched, I didn't understand why it was such a Liberal punching bag.

I understand now. Clearly.

Thank you.

That looks more like an SNL skit than an actual news broadcast. I love that the "body language expert" is a perfect straight woman (in the comedic sense, I have no idea about her sexual preference).

what! no way. this has to be a parody. it's so absurd!

Grace said...

I am highly suspicious about those "not parody" claims. It HAS to be, right? Good parody, too!

I'm totally impressed with Fox News, for what has to be the first time in my life.

OMG! Thank you for re-posting that. I thought I was depressed.. But thanks to those insightful journalists I now understand that I simply don't gyrate my arms enough to produce sufficient dopamine..

I'm ecstatic.. Really! I've been wildly gyrating my arms and "moving my organs around" out on the deck for the past two hours and I feel great!! A little tired.. and maybe dizzy,.. and you have no idea how long it took me to type this with my bid toe while maintaining my dopamine level..

Only problem is, I think my neighbors just called the police.

They're likely just running low on dopamine themselves.. I'm Gonna gyrate my way over there and share my epiphany..

Sarah said...

That was truly amazing. Wow. I cant believe somebody thought that was a good idea.

wickedneuron said...

No, no. That is not the funniest stripper related thing you've ever seen.

This is.

^^Aw, that's horrible! I can't fully get into the humor of "stripper falling down"..it's been me too many times, and it HURTS! :)

That particular Fox program (Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld) is intended to be funny, even when it has a bit of fact to it. Sometimes it is; often, it is sad, pathetic and deeply twisted. This was mostly pretty silly, even if the woman he was talking to was legit...sort of.

Her name is Janine Driver, and she claims to be a body language "expert." Look her up at: www.lyintamer.com/

Sorry to those of you who thought it was an SNL skit gone awry. Nope.

I've never fallen off of a pole personally (and an ugly sight that would have been, thanks), but random pratfalls and thumpings absorbed on a basketball court make me commiserate rather than giggle.

But it was funny. Even better is one out there where some ponce decided to pole dance using an extended shower curtain rod, and had the audacity to appear affronted when it collapsed.

Seriously, even though I know better, I'm still amazed at how @#$A$%ing tough strippers often are. They "play" through pain and maintain that look like they feel nothing but soft and sensuous pleasure, though many, are often nursing injuries that would keep a pro athlete on the bench for all but the playoffs.

Pole dancing isnt easy either.. (don't laugh, but I had to try it at the firehouse where a friend worked on their pole, back when I was in really good shape. And yes, I busted my ass and shoulder pretty good just fucking around.. and not to out anyone, but all but 2-3 firefighters from that house had tried, and only the one small latino guy could do anything that even remotely resembled pole dancing.. The rest had VERY high regard for the tricks on the pole.. And said that they no longer even thought of strippers pole dancing as that sexy.. but more like judging gymnastics.. They all swear though that it's an unfair advantage of being a buck-O-five as they say... and. and. the shaved legs.. and no junk,.. and,. and.. I was drunk.. or, have a bad knee, etc. etc. Was pretty funny really.

And remember, it's all done in six-inch stiletto heels.

Antonio said...

If it were any other channel I'd say it was simply a funny spoof, but I've seen too much crazy shit on Fox news to be sure =/

sv said...

fau5tu5's first comment has me in tears I'm laughing so hard. Ohh Christ. Oh Jesus.

Maybe FOX is trying to throw in some humor to gain and/or maintain their ratings or something. At the end it got pretty funny.

slightlymadscience said...

Thing is, I've seen many examples of this sort of farcical "reporting" on Fox News for years. I'm starting to think they'd be better off competing against the Onion instead of the other news networks. :/

That one had me laughing. My arms even started to wave around wildly. OH NOES! I am overdosing on Dopamine!

rat face said...

I love how the "journalist" YELLS ALL THE TIME BECAUSE, DUDE, HE'S GOT LIKE SO MUCH TESTOSTERONE IN HIM!

Adam said...

@ fau5tu5: that was very funny! Judging gymnastics in the face of hormonal avalanches is my ultimate goal in life. "Oh look at that muscle tone, she executed that perfectly. Great timing. Superb posture on that woman. I wonder what she's like in bed.."

Dan said...

Gads! Fox is just so... mindless.

Anyway, as for gracefully throwing myself around in six-inch stilettos, it ain't gonna happen. I've always puzzled over how women can operate those damn things. I can barely handle walking in tennis shoes.

Might sound hickish, but anyone study how movements affect the brain. I've seen body langauge on changing memories and stuff. Not sure it's the same.

Grace said...

^^Actually, there is a lot of truth in what she's saying. Or at least, a lot of what she's saying agrees with my yoga training. I think that's what makes it so supremely funny to me. I like to see facts taken wildly out of context. :)
