Well, That Didn’t Work Out As Planned.

“Droogie” (not his real name) made a presentation to this years DefCon hacking conference where his funny and mischievous plan didn’t turn out quite like he wanted.

Droogie is a security researcher who decided that in order to prank and cause law enforcement license plate readers issues, he would register for the vanity plate of “NULL.”

“Null” in computer programming is a term for no specific value.

The “plan” was that the DMV’s computers and law enforcement plate scanners would see “null” in the data and think nothing was there.

It didn’t work out quite that way:

This Is Not The Solution You Are Looking For.

Seen on mass transit in London…

No matter what, we don’t think this is a solution to the homeless problem.

(But the sign is funny.)

Whoever Thought That Spreadsheets Could Be Funny?

This is really Excel-ent.

You’ll never look at a spreadsheet the same way again.



Gilligan’s Island (Stairway)

The age old question that has been answered is “what happens when you combine the theme from Gilligan’s Island with Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway To Heaven.?'”

Now you know.

In 1978, the band Little Roger and the Goosebumps released a 45 RPM record of their song Gilligan’s Island (Stairway), which set the lyrics of the TV sitcom theme song Gilligan’s Island to the music of Stairway to Heaven by the rock band Led Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin‘s management threatened a copyright infringement lawsuit, and demanded that all copies be destroyed. Little Roger simply withdrew unsold records from the market. Many original records remain in collector’s hands.

But that’s not the end of the story.

In 2000 the song was reissued as Stairway to Gilligan’s Island.

In 2004, Robert Plant, lead singer of Led Zeppelin said in a public interview that the song is his favorite cover of Stairway to Heaven.




Language.

For some reason, this is both funny and accurate.

The Smothers Brothers: Boil Them Cabbage Down.

You might ask yourself, “why is Raised on Hoecakes doing a post with the Smothers Brothers?”

It’s a fair question. We perusing the internet and came upon this clip with the Smothers Brothers appearing with the Boston Pops back in the 1980’s. The song is an old American folk song called “Boil Them Cabbage Down” which like many folk songs, has different variations of the lyrics.

This version of the chorus is obviously our favorite.

Boil them cabbage down, down.
Turn them hoecakes ’round, ’round.
The only song that I can sing is
Boil them cabbage down.

Here’s another version of the same skit performed by the Smothers Brothers way back in 1963.

The Movie Meme That Keeps On Giving.

In 2004, the movie “Downfall” was released. The movie deals with the last days of the Third Reich and the descent in to madness of Adolf Hitler as he is abandoned by close advisors and the reality Germany’s situation hits home.

In a warped sort of way, there is a scene from the movie that has become the inspiration for endless video memes. Known as the “Hilter Finds Out…” scene, people have used different subtitles to “translate” the German dialogue.

When done well, the scenes never fail to draw a laugh – no matter what side of the political spectrum from which you hail.

This one is no different.

(NSFW language.)

Funny stuff.



Mini-Me: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Without taking a position on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez herself, this is hysterical.
