Gin and Topics

By Susan Cellura

What’s up with this?

The Spin Sucks “crazies” are subjected to my mug two Fridays in a row?


After last week’s #FollowFriday honor, let me tell you it was a pleasure getting to know everyone better.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the football talk and other hysterics that went on in our conversations.

College football season is only six days away (eight days for Clemson)!!

So, on our last football-free Friday afternoon, I bring you this week’s Gin and Topics.

I hope you laugh so hard your co-workers give you strange looks!

This week’s videos are brought to you by Mattie Dietrich, Lindsay Bell, Rebecca Amy Todd, and yours truly. Enjoy!

5.  The Camp Gyno. Every girl in this world can relate to this video. It’s a bit of a power trip of one young lady who had a visit from Aunt Flo before anyone else at camp. What happens next is hilarious. (Ed’s Note: The red badge of courage!!! BAHAHAHA!!)

4. Georgia Tech’s Epic Welcome Speech. If this kid put this much effort and creativity into his welcome speech to incoming freshman class of Georgia Tech, he has a bright future ahead of him.

3. Kids in the Hall: Businessmen Networking. This is from The Kids in the Hall, a Canadian sketch comedy show from the late 80s-early 90s, of which I am a huge fan! With all the networking we do today, online and otherwise, this blast from the past still stands up.

2. Dr. Seuss Pick-Up Lines. Anything they do on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” is worth a watch and this is no different. The title is self-explanatory…and the pick-up lines are both hilarious and inappropriate.

1. All The Single Babies.  This is an oldie but a goodie, and is making the rounds again. This baby already has the Beyonce attitude down! Even in a diaper.

NOTE from Lindsay: Please feel free to email your video finds to me, as well as Gini, each week! I’ll be working with Gin and Topics guest writers until the beginning of October, and it’s a huge help. I can be reached at

Have a great weekend everyone!

P.S. We have Jay Baer joining us on August 29 for a free webinar about his new book, Youtility. You can register here.

  • Thanks for the finds. I do enjoy taking a little time on Friday afternoon to do a little laughing. 
    Sidenote: Susan you’re a Tiger fan! GO TIGERS. I grew up about 20 minutes from Clemson and it’s pretty much the only college football I care about.

  • susancellura

    ginidietrich It was my pleasure AND it was so much fun!

    • @susancellura ginidietrich These were great!! I think my fave was What’s My Line – the creativity and edgy naughtiness had me laughing at my desk. As did baby Beyonce dancer. Good stuff!

      • susancellura

        biggreenpen ginidietrich Agreed on What’s My Line. I love how the guys all interact so well and just have fun!

  • Needless to say, I chuckled at Camp Gyno…but I ain’t sharing it! However, I’m definitely sharing the Business Networking video!

  • KateSieghardtAchelpohl

    Gin & topics is a terrific start to Saturday morning. (It’s 5:00 somewhere!) Love the networking video … But laughed at all … I miss the Whose Line crew!

    • KateSieghardtAchelpohl The crew is coming back! I just saw a promo for it.

      • ginidietrich KateSieghardtAchelpohl Seriously!? OMG that would be so awesome. I have so much respect for sketch comedy!

      • susancellura

        ginidietrich KateSieghardtAchelpohl YAY!

  • OMG!!! I would not be lying to say that I have indeed experienced some pick up lines very similar to those. 
    Yes indeed, yes siree, I’m often the target of all the ‘playa’ fleas!
