Friday Morning Laughs – Snooki, Mario & A Very Lazy Cat

Friday is here and we’re all getting ready for the weekend.  Whether you’re getting ready to relax…or trying to forget about the fact that you haven’t started on your taxes yet for a few minutes…we’ve got you covered with a collection of videos to help you end your week with a laugh and a smile.  This week we’ve got one of the laziest cats you’ve ever seen, a hilarious Snookie critique by Anderson Cooper, a Super Mario theme cover, a hilarious prank and the President of the Czech Republic stealing a pen.  So sit back, relax and get ready for some Friday Morning Laughs!

President of Czech Republic Steals Pen

You may have already seen this video in our Weekly Dose of WTF or read our post about it, but we thought it was worth closing out the week with it as well.  Earlier this week the President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus, was caught on tape pocketing a fancy pen during a press conference in Chile.  The video, which has been viewed nearly 4 million times this week, inspired a Facebook campaign to mail President Klaus pens on May 2, ‘as the president obvious has nothing to write with’.

Anderson Cooper slams reality television star Snooki

Oh, Anderson Cooper.  You are so wise.  In this clip he slams Snookie, adding “all the people who are paying Snookie to, well, be Snookie” to his “Ridiculist.”  He calls Snookie, “one impossibly lucky, unusually spunky, freakishly tan, beer-guzzling, juice head hugging, muscle loving, Botero-bodied, pint-sized money making machine.”  Did you know that Snookie will be making $100,000 per episode for the new season of Jersey Shore?  And worse, did you know that Rutgers University paid Snookie $32,000 for one speech at the school?  That’s even more than they are paying novelist Toni Morrison to speak at commencement next month!
