Lewis Hobba: the 10 funniest things I’ve seen (on the internet) | Comedy

TThe Internet is basically the sun for me. I need it to live, but I know that spending all day in its glow will eventually kill me. It has made my brain a worse place to be, but when I watch these funny videos, I can easily forget how terrible it is. Actually, I can easily forget anything because the internet has messed up my long-term memory.

I get nervous when I show things to people on the Internet; it’s a real shame to show people something they’ve already seen. People roll their eyes like you’re the second to invent the wheel. With that being said, let’s start with an extremely popular video!

1. Lubalin: Turn Yahoo Answers Into Beautiful Music

It is very likely that you have seen Lubalin’s songs made from comments on the Internet. He’s been to Fallon, which makes what I’m doing the equivalent of “introducing” you to Coldplay. If you’ve already seen this, just pretend you haven’t and laugh to make me feel good. It’s such a perfect execution of a simple idea.

2. This tweet (also enjoyed by Taika Waititi)

I must have gotten this tweet at least a dozen times when it dropped. I know my job is a joke, frankly I don’t need these kinds of personal attacks. My girlfriend thought this was so funny when I showed it to her (after she finished her busy day at a hospital).

3. The Day Today: ‘Is this cool?’

I didn’t discover The Day Today until 20 years after it went off the air. Thanks internet! It was the birthplace of Steve Coogan’s character, Alan Partridge. This isn’t Partridge, but the line “is it cool?” is something my friend Veronica Milsom and I have been yelling at each other on and off ever since she showed me this sketch.

4. Impressions!

Once the Algorithm decides you like something, it will gobble that thing up for you like it’s a duck turned into foie gras. You’ve decided that I love “specific impressions” and hats off to the terrifying algorithm because I absolutely love it! Here are three quick favorites:

Mel Buttle’s impressions of mothers belong in a museum. “Good day to be a frog!” I’m lovin ‘it.

Caitlin Reilly is the best actress playing actors acting. All of her work is excellent, but her string of poorly written female characters (in sci-fi, action movies, teen dramas, and more) is incredible.

5. Clickhole’s ‘find out your dragon’s name’ quiz

There is joy in a joke that takes you by surprise. this is not that. This stupid prank is going exactly where you think it is going and your hand is on the stupid steering wheel.

It’s a sick emotion. Come on, try it yourself. Find out the name of your dragon, as long as it’s not Rugarth. Your dragon better not be Rugarth!

6. A boar attacking a man who tried to pet him

Sometimes when we have a tough day at work, my coworkers suggest we rewatch South African Pig Man. It’s just a little treat. Everyone has their own version of South African Pig Man. This is mine.

Whoever made this clip ended it at EXACTLY the right time. We’ll never know what happened to South African Pig Man, and I think that’s for the best.

7. A Life in Questions: Wisdom School with Aaron Chen

As a broadcaster, I ask questions every day, but deep down I know that I will never come close to Aaron Chen when it comes to the ability to ask questions.

8. That Mitchell & Webb look: ‘Stay in’

This blew up again at the start of the pandemic and remains a modern classic. He was pretty close to the bone two years ago. I hope you’re ready to laugh at that again!

9. The chaotic nightclub photos Twitter bill

As the world opens up after years of lockdown, people are ready for our jazz age. Chaotic Nightclub Photos is both a love letter and a public service announcement to anyone ready to go back and paint the town.

10 This Guardian headline

I’m pretty bad with money. I bought some bitcoins in 2010 to buy normal legal stuff on the internet and didn’t keep track of the wallet. I have no idea where it is. My friend Michael Hing did a rough calculation and estimates its current value at about 3 million Australian dollars. Oh good. Now all I can do is be glad that the rich lose money in ridiculous ways.

Not only do I say this to make The Guardian look good, but that headline shows the perfect amount of restraint. There is nothing funnier than the truth.
