Do I Look Funny To You?
by Michele Christopher

One person's funny is another person's not so funny. Personally, I don't get the whole Will Ferrell thing, but I know people that think his movies are the highest level of comedy yet to be explored or some shit like that. I got through ten minutes of Anchorman before I knew I was going to hate it. And then there's movies like Dodgeball, Dude, Where's My Car and 40 Year Old Virgin that some of my friends have peed themselves laughing at, but leave me just blinking at the screen, trying to stay awake.

So when I give you my list of funniest movie scenes, it's with the knowledge that a bunch of you are going to look at it and say, what is she, on dope?


1.Slap Shot is one of those movies that just doesn't appeal to everyone. If you don't like hockey, you probably won't get most of the humor. Me, I think it's one of the funniest movies in existence. And my favorite scene doesn't even involve the Hanson Brothers, or take place on the ice.

[At the Chiefs Fashion Show]
Johnny Upton: I'm gonna flash'em, Joe.
McGrath: No, you're not.
Johnny Upton: I'm gonna open up this faggot robe and wiggle my dick at em. And do you know why? Because I want you to have a heart-attack and die so we don't have to do this shit anymore. You and your fucking fashion shows.

Then, Johnny walks off, presumably to do his fashion show walk. Offscreen, you just hear a roomful of women screaming.

2. Big Lebowski
The movie as a whole is incredibly funny and entertaining; it's in my top ten of my all time favorite movies. Maybe even the top three. This isn't really a laugh-out-loud film, but that's ok because most of my favorite humor isn't the "LOL" kind. This scene is directed to perfection, and encapsulates the entire feel movie in about four minutes. Jesus saves.

3. Humor may be subjective, but I don't know anyone who doesn't find Mel Brooks movies funny. This is my favorite scene from my favorite Brooks film, Young Frankenstein:

4. Friday
Just because I don't like Dude, Where's My Car? doesn't mean I don't appreciate a good stoner movie. Chris Tucker is always funny. Plus, I got a thing for Ice Cube.

That's just four of my favorite funny scenes. I'd write more, and maybe even make this funnier, except I've got a wicked stomach ache today and I need to go close myself off in a room and umm....let some air out. See, farts are always funny.

Michele will one day tell you about the time Turtle tried to light his farts on fire. With photographic evidence.


Young Frankenstein is the shit! I LOVE that movie, and every scene is hilarious.


Marty Feldman ab-so-lutely freaking kills me in Young Frankenstein....
