“I’m a shameful reminder of your 1960s prenatal substance abuse!”

Reality, Rudolph, microlives, guns, spider puppets, and Space Rangers — none of those will give you a power-up, but they are this past week’s topics on SeriouslyGuys. Here’s the recap:

  • If our world is, indeed, a computer simulation, then some user totally just watched you pick your nose. (Yes, I saw it, too.) (Dec. 17, 2012)
  • Why Rudolph’s Nose is Red, or How the Writers of Mad Men Could Never Come Up with a Better Name for a Drunk Mom Than “Mitzi Donner.” (Dec. 18, 2012)
  • In the time it took you to read this, you gained two microlives, but then lost four for not sharing this post with your friends. (Dec. 19, 2012)
  • Take it from Snee … took a break this week so that we could bring you the Rick Snee Antidisestablishmentarian Militia’s response to yet another shooting tragedy. If this keeps up, RAM isn’t sure how we’ll keep up. (Dec. 19, 2012)
  • Spiders weren’t content with being the world’s second most hated thing behind Jeff Dunham. (Dec. 20, 2012)

Your Week in Seriously Times: Dec. 25 – 31, 2011

It's because they eat a good breakfast every morning and never sleep.

This week: bad mothers, unstoppable New Yorkers, the end of calendars as we know them and the clap! It’s not the end of the world, just the end of another week on SeriouslyGuys … and also the end of the year. Here’s the recap:

  • Science unveiled their latest analogy, “bad fathers : slutty teens :: bad mothers : fat teens.” (Dec. 27, 2011)
  • An astrophysicist and an economist invent a new calendar. That’s the joke. (Dec. 29, 2011)
  • Christopher Columbus invented mercantilism. He took raw syphilis from the New World back to Europe, where they refined it into the brain-eating sex parasite we all know and love today, then sold it back to the colonies in the form of Kinder eggs and empanadas. (Dec. 30, 2011)
