The 4 Best Charlie Sheen Spoof Videos on the Internet Right Now

Charlie Sheen's very public insanity already inspired a great deal of jokes, which is great, because I love jokes. And now, because everyone hates reading, there are video jokes in which we can bask and stupidize ourselves.

Here are my 4 favorites:

Winning! The Cologne - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon's Charlie Sheen impression is funny, especially the way he hits those "Winning!"s with exactly the right accent. Not on par with his incredible Pat O'Brien, but good. This skit from his Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show imagines a commercial for a Charlie Sheen cologne called (what else?) "Winning." Doubtless it is made from Tiger Blood (if not bits of real panther, so you KNOW it works).

Ellen Degeneres - New Receptionist

A non-obvious angle by Ellen is short and sweet. Well, a little bitter, but mostly sweet.

Charlie Sheen Dance Party

If you love hipster dance music (I'm looking at you, "Barbara Streisand" by Duck Sauce fanboys), and also Charlie Sheen ranting like an undermedicated lunatic, then this song just might be for you.

Coldplay's Charlie Sheen Tribute

Well, not really. But this song does feature piano and a singer with a high voice.

Rock McLobster

Move over financial crisis, Westboro Baptist Church (and its concomitant army of fag haters), and Libyans: today's biggest news is the fabled existence of a sandwich called the McLobster, which sounds like the punchline of a forgettable SNL tie-in sketch and, reportedly, looks like this:

This news raises some questions:
  1. Does the McLobster actually exist? The blogs are claiming that it does...in Canada. Which is like saying that it exists if you believe it does or exists only when you close your eyes or exists in the same way that Santa Clause does -- in the imaginations of children everywhere.
  2. Why does the McLobster exist? Don't they have enough other places to get lobster in Canada? Doesn't the Canadian government provide two lobsters a week to every Canadian citizen as part of its socialized healthcare system?
  3. Given the improbably nature of the McLobster, how many animals can McDonand's successfully Mc? Have we as a culture been underestimating the Mcability of bison, deer, and manatee?

The McLobster, combining as it does the highbrow tradition of Lobster with the working class Mc, is probably designed to appeal to everyone. This strikes me as a smart strategy. Keep an eye out for McOysters Rockefeller, Truffle McNuggets, and the VealMac ("Two all tender, baby cow patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun") in Quarter 3. You heard it here first.

Braves Rookie Freddie Freeman Looks Uncomfortably Like Sgt. Pyle in "Full Metal Jacket" After He Goes Crazy

Braves rookie first baseman Freddie Freeman and Vincent D'Onofrio in "Full Metal Jacket" after he goes crazy--separated at birth?

Here's hoping for the Braves that Freeman doesn't field first base like old people fuck.
