The royal wedding is next week — and we'll be broadcasting it live on PopSugar! Whether you're caught up in the romance of it all or sick and tired of hearing about it, there's a way for you to get some laughs in the process. I've scoured the web to bring you some funny spoof websites and Twitter accounts that you should start following ASAP. Check them out below!
Kate Middleton For the Win — This hilarious Tumblr blog takes a lighthearted look at what could be going on inside bride-to-be Kate Middleton's head now that she's bound for royalty.
@QueenLizII — What would the world be like if Queen Elizabeth had a Twitter account and a wicked sense of humor? It would be just like this.
@William_HRH — The future king's (spoof) Twitter account is a real-time look into his daily life. Apparently, he's downloaded the Wills & Kate movie, and wants you to know he's not waiting 59 years for the throne.
Royal Wedding Dance — T-Mobile got in on the royal wedding spoof fun with its interpretation of the royal wedding party's walk down the aisle. The look-alikes are pretty amazing.
Can’t get enough of Rachel Zoe? Comedian Zoe impersonator Amy Phillips stars alongside Rachel, Rodger, and Brad in this hilarious send-up of the fashion icon with a peek inside the making of her addictive daily newsletter. PopSugar Studios teamed up with The Zoe Report to create this amazing video: The Zoeinator. It's bananas!
I remember being on the subway one day eavesdropping on a conversation. A man in his early 20s was telling a woman he was with that when he was younger, no show could annoy his father more than the pioneering '70s show Maude, starring Bea Arthur, who passed away April 25 at the age of 87.
Bea Arthur's character, Maude, was the polar opposite of her television cousin, subservient Edith Bunker of All in the Family. No wonder your average man would feel threatened by Maude — she identified as a feminist (a first for television?), she had a commanding, sarcastic manner, and she didn't suffer fools gladly. Maude, the show, tackled issues like abortion, the Vietnam War, and divorce.
Arthur went on to reprise her popularity as an icon (this time, as a hip older woman) in the more lighthearted (but no less feminist) series The Golden Girls, beloved by women and gay men alike. In the following video, she shows she continued to be a badass by starring in a geriatric version of Sex and the City, which, if you think of it, was simply the younger-woman version of The Golden Girls! Talented, tough, funny — and not above making fun of herself. You will be missed, Bea!
Poor Rush Limbaugh. The Democrats are anointing him the true leader of the Republican Party, opening him to ridicule from the left and repudiation from the right. So this dude stepped in to save the frail and demure flower that is Rush, borrowing a page from Chris Crocker's impassioned and hysterical plea for us to "Leave Britney alone!" I wonder if it will work.
Hell's Kitchen'sGordon Ramsay is famous for being a perfectionist and a windbag with anger management issues. This video imagines him as a child — and what a charming, foul-mouthed, abusive little child he is!
Paul Revere and his Midnight Riders took a little detour and ended up on the Jersey Shore. Forget drunk history. I want all historical events to be performed by over-the-top actors in "Jersey douchebag" drag.
This is totally what James Cameron's Titanic would have sounded like directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Samuel "mother effing" L. Jackson. Not sure why this guy is all over the Internet now, but I like it! Titanic totally would have benefited from this adrenaline shot to the eardrums! (Needless to say, languagewise, it's NSFW.)
Appropriate domain names are hard to come by. Sometimes you gotta twist the name of your website to fit the content, or if you're desperate, chuck appropriate out the window and just go with something catchy. Take this SNL spoof on an ad for Dillon Edwards investment company. This venerable institution just went with the domain name that was available — clownpenis.fart. But now where are the clown penis farters gonna go? No fair. (Thanks, geeksugar!)
OK, this is Samuel "Mother Effing" L. Jackson in Transformers, so if you're opposed to strong language, it's NSFW. In other words, this isn't your dad's Saturday morning cartoon! It's been Tarantino'd and Jacksonized. You got that, b*tch?! (Samuel, I think this is a hint you might want to diversify your roles a little.)
The "nice guy" sweaters. The steely gaze. The land of make-believe right in the middle of his bachelor pad. I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you guys, but this is the dark side of the beloved Mr. Rogers. Be very, very afraid.
