Trouble with Trains – Videos

Today we present trouble with trains. In our first video, a couple of boys, Russian I believe from the sound of the vid, prove to themselves that they are man enough to do something totally crazy. Have a look:

This is one daredevil type prank that I hope does not spread to the US. If I caught my kid doing this, I would ground him for a year. Having said that, I bet a stunt like that really gets the old adrenalin pumping.

In this next video a group of kids are being kids at a train depot. Suddenly two of them try to push each other into the path of an oncoming train. They both end up on the tracks just as the train passes.

It is a miracle that they did not get killed as the train passes over them missing them literally by inches.

__________________________________

Our last video has been around for a couple of years, but it fit right in with our train theme for today so I added it anyway. If you have already seen it, watch again because it is very funny.

It seems some Norwegian kids think of themselves as engineers and decide to alter the course of a high-speed train with rather amazing results. Take a look:

That video was worth the wait IMO.

Another Funny News Reporter Blooper – Video

This reporter commits the ultimate sin when he is reporting on a finch infestation and he looks up into the trees with his mouth wide open. Yes, I know and you know what is coming, but it is funny all the same.

God love those reporters and their bloopers.

More Funny Automobile Bloopers and Misadventures – Videos

When folks get behind the wheel these days, look out! Whether it is because of stupidity, carelessness, drunkenness or cell phone texting, people are screwing up more and more these days when they hit the roadways.

Although many of the accidents that are caught on film result in tragedy, we prefer to dwell on the funny incidents because humor is a lot more fun than a broken neck.

VW micro buses were all the rage back in the 1960’s and ’70’s. They have been around since then, but they simply have not been all that popular. In the late 1960’s they were a status symbol, a sign that you were a part of the hippie generation because many of the flower children drove across the USA in a VW micro bus.

They were usually painted in psychedelic colors and were major players in the automotive experiences of the hippie generation.

Volkswagen did not forget how popular their micro bus was back then, and a few years ago the company previewed a concept car based on that micro bus from the ’60’s and ’70’s.

If the above photo is any proof, the concept car made it all the way to the production line. Yes, it appears from this photo that the bus is back.

The design makes perfect sense in these days of high priced gasoline and is certainly a sign of the times. You can be sure this new VW only sips the petrol.

Almost everyone who sees this photo says it’s cute. That means that women drivers would be the natural market for this vehicle. You could watch for more of them at a VW dealer near you. But the problem with that is that Volkswagen insists that they know nothing about the vehicle.

Even in Germany, the closest vehicle you can find similar to this car is the VW Fox, which is nowhere as cute as this car is. If you like it, call Volkswagen and tell them you want to buy one. If they built one, they must have built others that are out there…somewhere.

Now, for our first video–you know what kids do. They build a ramp that they can use to jump things with their skateboard, and naturally they leave it in the street in front of their house. Kids will be kids and they don’t understand that bad things are likely to happen when something like this is left in the street.

The driver never noticed the skateboard ramp in the street and…well, watch and see for yourself:

Oh too bad! The car did not actually tip over. But, we all know that this scenario could have gone a lot worse.

Just imagine how the driver must have felt. He’s tooling along, probably talking on his cell phone, maybe late for an appointment, and, if he is like most drivers, his mind is anywhere but concentrating on what’s right in front of him. Suddenly his car rides up on only two wheels just like in a stunt car show. Wouldn’t that be a shocker!

_______

In the next vid we have an Evel Knievel wannabe let his buddy drive a car over his forearm because that’s not really gonna hurt is it? Naah! Of course not!

Well, I cannot understand how that hurt the kid’s arm. Let’s see…drive a 3500 pound vehicle over a human arm? That shouldn’t hurt, should it?

Wait till this kid gets to school to tell his buddies what he did. “You drove the car over your arm? No Way!”

“Yes, Way! Check out the video pal. See! And I’m still alive. Of course, my arm’s in a cast, but so what! Now I’m an Internet hero.”

Well, we all know that a broken arm is a small price to pay for immortality on the Internet. I can see the high school class year book now. “Mike Smith: Let Jonesey drive a car over his forearm. Most likely to become the next Evel Knievel.”

_______

Okay! I feel guilty about the car in the first video not tipping over so I’m going to try to make it up to you…maybe.

In the next video what could possibly go wrong. The driver is entering a fenced location through a steel gate, and people enter premises like that through steel gates every day. What could go wrong?

What indeed! Watch!

Lady! Next time try to remember to keep the shiny side up!

__________

We have saved the best for last, at least in our opinion. In our last video, a young woman attempts to fill her car with gas, which is usually a simple procedure. But today it isn’t.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Laurel and Hardy movies, this is the type of situation that Stan Laurel and Ollie Hardy used to get themselves into constantly. Most of their humor consisted of sight gags very similar to this one.

I have watched this video several times and I still laugh out loud every time I see it.

Did you notice at the very end of the clip she is still struggling with the hose trying to bring it back again to the wrong side of the car. If only she would turn her car around, all would be fine, but she doesn’t seem to understand that.

Funny Automotive Bloopers and Misadventures

Our video depicts a female bus driver who unwittingly sets out to experience an off road adventure, but she is not in an SUV. No, she is driving a bus, but it is still an adventure and it is definitely off road.

When I first watched the video of this woman bus driver, I suspected that it was fake. The bus must drive right over one or two cars parked in the parking lot for this video to be authentic, and that alone screamed of unlikely authenticity.

However, after watching it several times, I noticed that other vehicles which were in the first part of the video, when the camera was aimed where the bus was headed, were also in the second half of the video. Those vehicles were the same color, shape and size plus their location was the same too.

Sadly for the bus driver, this video appears to be real. But it probably no longer matters to her because it is unlikely that she is still working at that job. Would you keep her on after seeing her drive in that video?

More Funny News Reporter Bloopers – Videos

I enjoyed doing the last post about reporter bloopers so much that I decided to add more. Our first video exhibits a couple of blooper stories back to back.

In the first scene a British reporter is describing how soldiers have confiscated cocoa leaves, which are used to produce cocaine, and marijuana plants and are now burning the confiscated goods in the background. The reporter gets a little too close to the enticing aroma of the burning drugs that is wafting his way, and you can pretty much guess the rest.

In the second scene, a reporter, who is obviously a rookie around horses goes where no one, man or woman, should ever go. I cannot imagine why she went there, but we’re glad she did because the result is a remarkable sight to behold.

Well, that first reporter finished up feeling no pain whatsoever. Did you notice how quickly his personality transformed from the typical British straight laced fellow to a guy with an easy going devil may care attitude?

And what can you say about that second reporter. Rookie! Rookie! Rookie!? Years from now when that reporter passes away, at her funeral the family will probably remember how she was immortalized on the Internet at the business end of a horse.

I don’t mean to be picky, but I would prefer immortality be conferred upon me in a somewhat tidier fashion, thank you.

Horse “manure” can be some pretty smelly stuff. How many times do you think that young lady had to shampoo her hair to rid herself of her newly acquired equestrian aroma?

*****

In the second video, our friendly reporter, Barney, is doing a short human interest story on a young lad who builds model buildings with wooden blocks. Now ask yourself, “How could Barney possibly get into any trouble from such a generic story?” Ah! How indeed!

In the second scene, we have Chuck Storm, a type “A” reporter if ever there was one. Chuck is a hard charger who is out to get that story no matter what gets in his way. Well, something manages to slow Chuck down a bit despite his aggressive attitude. Have a look:

Hopefully Barney, the first reporter in this video, does not have any delusions that one of the major networks will catch a glimpse of his talent and whisk him away to the glory and greatness of the networks. Cause, Barney, that just ain’t gonna happen!

It is somewhat surprising that Brian, the young model builder, restrained the impulse to punch old Barney for ineptly destroying his creation.

Perhaps Chuck Storm, the second reporter, will slow down just enough to clear up those terrible headaches he must get from bumping into signs and things. That one really had to hurt!

Funny News Reporter Bloopers

TV news reporters are responsible for some hilarious bloopers that usually just end up on the editing room floor without anyone getting the opportunity to laugh at them. Well fortunately, we have managed to rescue a select few. All of our videos are short, so please do not worry about your time commitment.

You folks living in warm weather cities do not know how much fun you are missing by not getting any snow. In our first video the reporter is doing a story about the hidden dangers for kids when they hang around the snow plow. It is one of my favorites. Have a look:

I have watched that one several times and I still laugh out loud every time I watch it.

*****

Remember comedian George Carlin’s skit about the seven words you cannot say on TV? When it comes to reporters, there are many more taboo words than just seven. The reporter in this next video mistakenly lets out a major slip of the tongue, and he gets a bit flushed because of his error. Watch:

I certainly hope that Miss Nevada is able to get her tittle back. I think that it is a significant aspect to her charm. In fact I cannot imagine how she would look without it.

Don’t you think that The Donald should give her tittle back? C’mon, Donald! Give that poor girl her tittle back. The nerve of some control freaks, wanting to keep the tittles all for themselves.

*****

You really have to feel sorry for the reporter in this next video. This poor girl never saw that train coming. As it says in the beginning of the video: No light fixtures were harmed during the making of this video. We don’t want the electricians’ union mad at us.

I could be wrong, but I smell a law suit here. As for the medical condition of the reporter, I only know that she did not die. Wish I could tell you more.

*****

We have room for just one more blooper. It has nothing to do with reporters, but it fits in here very well.


Somebody seems to have mistaken the house for the garage. This is happening all too frequently these days. What do you want to bet that the driver was texting someone at the time of the accident?

Maybe it was about their horoscope. It might have gone something like this: “BFF. HORSCOP SZ SMTHNG DRAMATC ROUND NX CRNR.” Of course, they didn’t know it was the Jones’ doublewide.

No, Mabel. That garage remote cannot lift the Jones house off its foundation, although the Dodge almost can. Next time drive around the thing, will you pulleeze?

Imagine the poor Joneses sitting down to dinner. “Honey. Look who’s coming to dinner. It’s Mabel.”

“Mabel, dear. So glad you dropped in. Maybe next time you could call first. George, I think the dog is trapped under the transmission…George! Where are you George? You’re under the transmission too? Do you think AAA handles something like this, George?…George?!”

Redneck Industrialists – Videos

Redneck Industrialists. Boy that sounds like a mouthful, but we are referring to our friendly redneck crane operators who usually operate their cranes in industrial locations, hence the term industrialist.

To my knowledge, you do not need a license to operate a crane, but they are devilishly difficult pieces of machinery to operate correctly. That thankfully results in many botched jobs by crane operators, which is to our advantage because many of the crane operator bloopers have been caught on film, and we get to howl at their mistakes here.

We begin with a scene from a movie that involves, what else, a crane.

If you have never seen a movie from 1988 entitled A Fish Called Wanda, run (don’t walk) down to the neighborhood video store and rent it immediately! Do not wait on the chance that someone else in your neighborhood will see this post and beat you to the video store. You absolutely must see this movie right away because it is that funny!

The film features John Cleese, Kevin Kline, Jamie Lee Curtis and Michael Palin and it is no exaggeration when I tell you it is absolutely hilarious. Rent it when you have some extra time because you will want to watch it twice.

Kevin Kline won an Oscar for best supporting actor, but John Cleese and Michael Palin should also have won Oscars. Maybe Jamie Lee should have won one too, but she played a sexy crook. Since she is naturally sexy, she really did not have to act as much as the others did.

I have had a thing for Jamie Lee since I was old enough to tell the difference between men and women, so I am a little biased here. Since we all know that gratuitous sex and violence sells in this day and age, I have added a photo of Jamie Lee back when she was a bit younger.

The photo fulfills our quota of gratuitous sex for this post, plus there is plenty of violence, so to speak, in the videos.


All of the other actors in the film, writers (John Cleese and Charles Crichton) and the director (also Charles Crichton) won other awards for the movie and deservedly so. It is the remarkable cast that makes this movie so funny.

If you intend to rent the movie, skip past the first video now to the second video so that we won’t spoil any of the film for you.

The following video is a scene from the movie in which a criminal, Ken (Michael Palin), is trying to kill an elderly woman and make it look like an accident. He screwed up his first two attempts and killed two of the lady’s dogs instead. Ken is an animal lover so it bothered him enormously when he killed the first two dogs. Killing people however comes second nature to him.

The scene begins as Ken is making his third attempt to kill the little old lady, and he is using a crane to do it. This scene is what prompted me to search for funny videos using cranes.

The following video is from the movie “A Fish Called Wanda:”

As you will see in the other vids, cranes naturally lend themselves to funny situations.

If you skipped ahead because you had not seen “A Fish Called Wanda,” pick up the thread here.

Our next video involves a crane and a port-a-potty, or modern day outhouse. I, for one, cannot imagine what could possibly be funny about the combination of those two.

The Crane vs The Outhouse or Let’s Embarrass the Boss:

Well, all I can say is Oh Crap! And I thought that I was having a bad day. Hopefully, for the crane operator’s sake, it was his last day on the job. Because if it wasn’t before it is now.

You noticed, I hope, that the occupant of our port-a-potty is a white collar type. What do you want to bet that the beneficiary (translation = victim) of our outhouse humor is the boss.

The crane operator saw the opportunity and he went for it. If you are going to get fired, this is the way to go out. Payback is so sweet, is it not? Haven’t we all had at least one boss that we wish we could have done that to?

The happy ending here would be to convince the old man that it truly was an accident and to keep your job.

“Boss, I am so sorry. I don’t know how that happened. The crane controls should be checked out. I didn’t mean to do it! etc., etc.”

If you were a good enough actor, you would get completely reinstated to your old position as crane operator. Then you could lie in wait to do it all over again.

You know, I have to admit that I really like that one. After watching it several times, I still laugh every time I see it.

*****

Mechanical contractors often use cranes, but sometimes they use levers and fulcrums when using a crane just isn’t feasible. Here are a couple of installation contractors that remind me very much of Laurel and Hardy.

Installation Blues:

Yep! Just like Laurel and Hardy. But as funny as that video is, there are several things that just aren’t right about it. What contractor will move a spindle that large by manual labor anymore? Because of unions, contractors use heavy lifting equipment for any work that big.

Why didn’t they take the cable off of the spindle and move it up via the elevator? And notice the black mat right where the spindle goes through the “window.” That spot is clearly where a door would normally be.

Unfortunately, this one is fake, but it’s a good fake and it’s funny. So we will let it ride.

*****

In the next one you have to notice the dog, which is a Pomeranian, I think. It is just like the dog in the clip from A Fish Called Wanda. And nope! That’s no coincidence.

I knew someone with a Pomeranian when I was young, and that blasted dog would bark and bite constantly. I cannot count how many times that dog bit me. So any time a Pomeranian gets it, my heart dances an Irish jig.

That’s another reason to like A Fish Called Wanda. Sorry animal lovers. Dogs? I love them, but Pomeranians? No Thanks.

The crane versus the Pomeranian:

Didn’t you just love it when the crane operator ran away? Yes, he is in big trouble. If they ever try to enact a law requiring crane operators to be licensed, be sure to oppose it because we need the videos. That car was totally squashed, wasn’t it? Thank you Mr. redneck industrialist crane operator.

All Star Ball Girl, Human Billboard and Sports Bloopers – Videos

We have some remarkable sporting feats and bloopers in both photos and videos today. Naturally some are obviously staged, but even the staged ones are exceptional. Now, most of these folks cannot be labeled as rednecks, but a handful can. See if you can guess which ones are the rednecks.

Imagine a human billboard with the participants playing either football or soccer, depending on what part of the world you live in. The location is somewhere in East Asia (who can tell Japanese writing from Chinese? Not I).

It’s not a new idea. Microsoft had a similar billboard for the opening of Microsoft Vista, and we even found a similar billboard in a movie musical from 1929. But believe that you need remarkable athletic ability to play soccer with your body parallel to the ground high above the streets below.

This type of stunt provides a mountain of publicity, as you can see from the crowds in the streets beneath the billboard. But this one qualifies as a “Don’t do this at home.” If you try it at home, we never heard of you.

No, no, no! You’re supposed to hit the ball with the bat, not with your face. Well, at least that is a good start to our bloopers, although that had to hurt. But the best bloopers are on video, so let’s take a look.

*****

Our videos are all short, so try not to worry about your time commitment. The first one is a terrific example of an incredibly talented girl baseball player. Even Tori Hunter could not make this catch any better.

Hopefully, you caught on that the video is fake and is for an upcoming commercial. But real or fake, it was fun anyway.

The next video shows you a side of fatherhood that none of us aspire toward.

Oooh! Litle girl! If you only knew what you just did. I can really feel for that poor guy. You women will never know how incredibly painful that is.

Video No. 3 shows how juvenile delinquency can go so very wrong and never turns out the way you planned.

That kid was ever so lucky because he could have been burned so much worse. I remember doing some dumb things as a kid, but I was never that dumb.

Our final video proves that, despite the best of intentions, accidents do happen.

Now that is one understanding mother. How she ever learned to be that good natured is beyond belief.

Funny Photos – Wrong Place and Time Bloopers


The theme today is being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the above feline has most definitely hit both wrongs directly on the nose. This is either one remarkably brave cat, one very stupid one, or one very unlucky one.

Our location is probably an obedience school where these pups’ ability to obey their masters’ commands regardless of the temptation to do otherwise is being tested. If only one of those German shepherds loses it, however, they will all lose it, and our poor little kitty is toast.

Yes, Hans, you did see a puddy tat. The begging question is: can you ignore it? Several of the Fidos have that look in their eye, as in “Hey, there’s dinner. Let‘s eat.”

The real question here is how many cats do they lose when the dogs’ obedience is being put to the test? Because this kitty will most certainly need all nine of its lives.


Okay, perhaps the most dangerous part of skydiving is not necessarily whether or not the chute opens.

If this skydiving enthusiast survives this encounter with nature, will he retain his enthusiasm about jumping again? This may be his supreme test about whether he continues to participate in the sport he loves.

I know what you are thinking. It’s a Photoshop moment. If it is, then it is a very good one. Notice the parachutist’s reflection in the water. It is a much less defined reflection and is right where it should be.

This photo looks plenty real to me, and I do not believe that those crocs are going through obedience school training either.

That leaves pilot error or else we have one very gutsy skydiver. Regardless, you could not pay me enough to be in this guy’s chutes right now.

The only way our man can get out of this situation is if someone is standing behind the scenes with a boat or air lift ready to rescue our danger junkie at the last moment.

*****

The term “freak accident” may be a euphemism here. This is just plain weird. The death of Od is truly quite odd. I think everyone wanted to say that so I just got it out of the way.

Have you ever swallowed a gnat on a humid summer evening? This situation is something like that, except on a much grander scale.

My question is “Did Od have to die.” Why couldn’t they have immediately shot Hilda the hippo and gutted her? Od would have been in her belly only a couple of minutes if they had acted right away.

It is because Hilda was probably worth more to the circus than Od was. Once again, money is the determining factor about who lives and who dies.

Road Sign Bloopers

Ah, the road sign is an integral part of automotive society. It is generally taken for granted and is usually not the subject of further study–unless, of course, it contains a glaring error. In which case, we all will take enormous delight in wallowing amongst the verbal sludge cast about during the ensuing debate over the merits of our highways’ road sign etiquette.

You may have to study these examples somewhat to notice the error of the sign maker’s ways. But that merely adds to your pleasure once you discover the gaffe.

Encountering such mistakes is quite rare in this age of digital signage because the sign makers make far fewer errors thanks to their spell checking software.

Perhaps the second sign really has no error but is correctly directing the motorist to the location of the “Keap.” If you want to go to the “Keap,” turn right.

My guess is that you really cannot get there from here anyway. But the more nagging question is, do you really want to get there?

We will have to leave that debate to a different posting and limit our concern to the more political issue of: if you acquiesce to the sign’s command and do keep right, does that brand you as a right wing conservative, or merely label you as prudent? And, is there a difference between the two?

More sign humor…
