New Year’s Resolution In Practice.

Okay, so you made a New Year’s resolution to “get into shape.”

Maybe join a gym?


Enjoy your marshmallows.

This Just Made Us Laugh.

Don’t know why, but this made us laugh. Maybe because it is all the “Eat Mor Chikin” ads during games this time of year. Maybe we still are thinking of Christmas carols and songs like “Away in a Manger” and the lyrics “the cattle are lowing. The Baby awakes.”

Maybe we are just being silly and daffy, but we still like this cartoon.

One Way To Use A Christmas Tree After The Holidays.

We have always thought that the sight of a once live Christmas tree on the side of the road after Christmas was always somewhat sad. After all, just a few days prior the tree was the focus of decorations in many homes. Brightly lit with presents underneath, it is hard to not love the sight of a Christmas tree – except when it is just cast on the side of the street waiting for the garbage truck to pick it up.

Some people, however, are a little more ingenious in their use of Christmas trees. For example, take Joerg Sprave who makes slingshots. Actually, Sprave loves slingshots and has a YouTube channel devoted to his passion.

Like some crazy scientist, Sprave decided to use a tree in a slingshot. He wasn’t going to make the slingshot out of the tree, but rather use the tree as the ammunition for the slingshot. As he puts it, he was going to “weaponize” a Christmas tree.

Now we aren’t for weaponizing anything like this, but we have to say that as an experiment, the results are pretty impressive.

It is THIS time of the year again, the world celebrates Christmas. We wanted to tune in here at The Slingshot Channel and did a video especially for the holidays.

The Empire Is Coming To Town. Wait. What?

This is a SpikeTV commercial, but it managed to put a smile on our faces.

Video poster Ruby Rinekso writes:

SPIKE TV commercial featuring myself and other fellow stormtroopers from the Star Wars costuming group, the 501st Legion…..

Is there a better way to celebrate the holidays than with a crew of Star Wars Storm Troopers singing “The Empire is Coming to Town”? We submit that there is not. Happy Holidays from Spike TV!

Lawyers Expanding Their Market.

We are big believers in the free market here at Raised on Hoecakes, but even we have problems thinking this law office will have any luck offering services to those in the afterlife……



This Is Not The Accident You Were Looking For.

We sometimes marvel at how far graphics and special effects have come – especially from average people in their homes.

I’m Just A Bill. (Revisited)

This past weekend, Saturday Night Live revisited the School House Rock classic, “I’m Just a Bill.”

The new version has a different take than the original in light of the Executive orders proposed by the President this past week.

Shake It Off – The Obama Version.

The Obama administration puts its own special spin on the Taylor Swift hit.
