i can't stop laughing
This is the absolutely one of the funniest things that has ever existed.
July 27 2008 6:55 PM EDT
Might just be me and my silly Dutch mind but I didn't find it that funny... >.<
July 27 2008 6:57 PM EDT
I didn't even smile, much less laugh.
July 27 2008 7:24 PM EDT
I would love to hear why this is funny? Seriously. I mean to find common ground. Er, I meen two fine comomon grownd.
Did that last sentence hit? See, I just watched "Idiocracy", so I'm just trying to speak the lingua franca...er, the language people understand, er, talking so you get me better....ah, screw it.
(and the spell checker is dumbest of all...sigh...so hard to really communicate these days...)
It's funny because there are people like this who really exist. XD
July 27 2008 7:33 PM EDT
Sut - it's funny because this was actually a question asked on yahoo answers, and it's funny to mock uneducated people, or people who don't speak English for a first language..... apparently.
July 27 2008 7:35 PM EDT
I had to watch like 5 times to understand what the second guy was talking about lol
July 27 2008 7:46 PM EDT
July 27 2008 7:49 PM EDT
im sorry for your lots!!
Yeah....I'm with Shade, JarL and Frisky on this one.
Not even slightly amusing :(
July 27 2008 8:48 PM EDT
heh, funny, but.. not
Is that a Geico commercial?
July 27 2008 9:03 PM EDT
"it's funny because this was actually a question asked on yahoo answers,"
July 27 2008 9:07 PM EDT
Repeating it doesn't make it true.
Put me in the 'unfunny' camp.
July 27 2008 9:21 PM EDT
Ah, the mocking of the stupid... My bad. I'm about ten years too late to think that's funny any more (I'll admit, I used to), but at least I can appreciate why other folks think it's da bomb. I guess.
If y'all can laugh at it, then more power to you!
July 27 2008 9:23 PM EDT
I wonder, would more people think it was funny if the majority did too? Hmm....
Sure, it isn't appropriate to laugh at a person asking a question like that... to their face. But watching a ridiculous video on the internet involving cavemen is just going to make me laugh, period point blank. I'm with the "funny" people and to hell with all you socially sensitive people!
Not funny. Those cavemen ruined the evident stupidity.
Funniest thing here is Bast's comment.

I've always wondered how babby was formed.
I get it. The people who watched it didn't have sound turned on. Because there's no other explanation. I tried watching it without sound and it wasn't funny.
Tetra, I'm sorry but that's way off. At least for me. I don't really care what the majority thinks. I like what I like. I form my own opinions.
As for the second part of your comment, I am not socially sensitive. I just do not find it to be funny. No need to attack my opinions. I did not attack yours.
July 27 2008 11:09 PM EDT
Badfish (tetra?), for me it isn't about whether or not it is funny. Some people laugh at shiny objects. Some people laugh at purple. Some people just laugh. That's doesn't have as much to do with it (for me) as the fact that there are soooo many other funny things out there. Funny ha-ha, not just funny-sad.
Why do I come out against funny-sad (at least apparently in this thread...)? Well, because funny-sad doesn't make me laugh any more. It just makes me sad, and/or angry. Are you mad? Are you mad that we have billions of dollars for war (~200 million a day, roughly, in Iraq alone), but don't have the cash to educate citizens? This is an honest question from an admittedly "socially sensitive" person (do you really think that's a bad thing, or something to be apathetic about?)
In a day and age where "journalism" is reduced to whatever Youtube video spreads fastest, the onus is on the viewer to decide what is really worthwhile news and how to interpret it. In that light, NOT being socially sensitive can be a somewhat dire thing.
July 27 2008 11:22 PM EDT
Yaaaay flame war all over the perspectives of whether or not this is funny -_-''
July 27 2008 11:23 PM EDT
Ehh... Maybe if you are in some sort of substance induced state... Besides that I've seen enough humor based on stupid people on the internet to last my lifetime.
I'd have found it funny maybe a few years back. I dunno, I've seen dumber questions than that asked in worse ways plenty of times.
July 27 2008 11:26 PM EDT
This is a flame war, Nic?
Just exactly what _are_ folks allowed to discuss before the drama-squad comes on and declares a flame emergency? Are you putting forth a opinion, Nic, or just shouting "FIRE!" ?
July 27 2008 11:30 PM EDT
:P I'd lean more towards an opinion
July 27 2008 11:31 PM EDT
Which is (in regards to the state of social intelligence, responsibility, and news-telling)?
July 27 2008 11:33 PM EDT
Reading some of the previous statements
July 27 2008 11:43 PM EDT
I still find this hilarious. Those of you who don't are definitely entitled to your opinions.
July 28 2008 4:21 AM EDT
Not funny. And bad.
July 28 2008 4:36 AM EDT
"Are you mad that we have billions of dollars for war (~200 million a day, roughly, in Iraq alone), but don't have the cash to educate citizens?"
Seriously though, there are so many ways to educate yourself without posting on some internet forum like a goob. Education doesn't need more money pumped into it. It needs people and kids who actually care enough to LEARN instead of trying to find some quick easy answer (read: internet forum....)
I actually envy the socially sensitive. Their viewpoints are so easy to defend. Not that they're wrong, but they're no more correct than mine. Mine just makes me look arrogant, yours make you look caring. Kind of unfair.
July 28 2008 4:47 AM EDT
A flame war over the existence of a flame war?
'Twas funny for the first three or so seconds for me. And Badfish, if the kid's first experience with any academics is with an undertrained underpaid teacher, they are predisposed against liking LEARNING.
Meh, "sensitivity". Political correctness makes me want to hose them idiots who want to eventually make every word a euphemism for something "bad".
July 28 2008 5:26 AM EDT
Too everyone who did like it, and to all of those who didn't:
I'm happy not everyone found this funny, makes life more diverse for me :)
July 28 2008 10:47 AM EDT
Oh_my_god. Shade spelled to wrong. Time to do a Flash skit with cavemen, woohoo!!
July 28 2008 10:54 AM EDT
Oh_my_deity, I did not spel to wrong.
Saying something TO someone is different from saying things TOO loudly...
I do know my English a bit _too_ well _to_ make such a mistake...
July 28 2008 11:06 AM EDT
I don't get it...
What is going on, and why is it funny?
I don't take offense at the subject matter or anything, I just don't get what is supposed to be funny about it.
July 28 2008 11:10 AM EDT
Just to clarify this term "socially sensitive" (I didn't make it...), I am not saying I am really sensitive as in caring (in fact, I am more than just a bit of a misanthrope)... I meant sensitive in terms of words like "critical" and "discriminating". I don't care more than anyone else, I just think it's important to ask a lot of questions and look for answers.
So I definitely wasn't trying to say I am more kind or caring than anyone else -- not at all. That just wouldn't be true. *smile*
Guys turn on your sound. It's only funny if you're able to hear the cavemen.
July 28 2008 12:21 PM EDT
"Some people laugh at shiny objects. Some people laugh at purple. Some people just laugh."
I feel like this comment was directly aimed at me, and thus I take offense. Have at you, cur! *fences*
As far as I can tell, there's no flame war here - merely a discussion. Or at least, there is until someone takes it personally and gets their panties in a wad. Then we've got a ruined discussion and racing stripe panties, and who's going to be the one to wash them? Not me.
Jokernaut, I've had the sound on the whole time. I find this video to be mildly amusing....I think hearing this kind of internet lingo too much has desensitized me to the 'funny!' aspect.
