‘The Katering Show’ Quits Sugar

The Katering Show is a hilarious, absurd, deadpan parody of a cooking show, built on the premise that one of the hosts can cook well and the other is intolerant of a lot of foods.

“Comfortable With Him” Lingerie

College Humor made a great commercial for the unsexy stuff girls wear when they’re just not trying.

Google’s Movie, ‘The Internship’, Is About 8 Years Late

As The Onion points out, The Internship has everything a 2005 audience could want from a comedy:

  • Great cast: both Vince Vaugh and Owen Wilson were very popular in 2005, after the success of Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball
  • Interesting plot: having an Internet job and struggling with video chat technology were both hot topics in 2005
  • X-Men jokes: also very topical in 2005, with the trilogy ending in 2006
  • Quidditch: very big in 2005, when the fourth film in the Harry Potter series opened, in the hayday of the franchise
