Gin and Topics: Crazy Football Fans and Awkward Pregnancy Photos

By: Gini Dietrich | September 14, 2012 |

I believe fall has arrived! Which I would be totally excited about, but it also means football season and my Bears had a rough game last night.

What makes things worse is they lost to the Packers. It’s one thing to lose a game. It’s an entirely different thing to lose to the cheeseheads.

But alas! Next week is a new week and you’ll find me sitting at Soldier Field cheering them on.

This is going to be an interesting Gin and Topics because Mr. D and Rusty Speidel (with a little help from Jason Konopinski) rule it.

In fairness, they were on their A games this week. They found some seriously funny videos.

These are in no particular order. My favorite is not in the number one spot. I do this so as not to persuade you in any way.

5. Selling is Service. Service is Selling. I don’t really know how I can explain this. I feel like it’s just something you have to watch. They say it’s a video to learn how to bring your retail skills to the next level. But, well, um, yeah. Just watch.

4. Best of Farting Preacher. I can’t believe this is true. Surely they put the noises over the top of the videos?? Regardless, people think farting is funny (sorry, Lisa) so here you go!

3. Two Hamsters, One Wheel. This seriously is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. The poor hamsters. Oh who am I kidding? It’s hilarious!

2. Razorbacks: United We Stand. OK. I’m a HUGE Bears fan. I can tell you ridiculous stats about the players like I’m a 12 year old boy. I watch every game as if my life depends on it. But this? This is over-the-top. A Razorbacks fan records a song for the team, after a loss. I particularly like her taped-up nose.

1. Awkward Pregnancy Photos. You’ve seen awkward family photos? Well this is awkward pregnancy photos. I have to say, I cannot imagine how this conversation goes at home. Honey, I’d really like to do some interesting photos with my belly? Yeah? Let’s do it! How about we have photos taken with your belly showing while you’re pulling my gun out of my holster.

I started watching the preacher video at work and I had to walk away because I was laughing so hard. I have the sense of humor of my five-year-old daughter.
 
I can’t wait to share it with my friends.

 @bradmarley We’re all like five year olds when it comes to farting.

Ah, the farting preacher. That’s one of the oldest viral videos on the web. Oldie, but goodie.

 @KenMueller I’m pretty sure it’s not real. But funny anyway!

I can’t even bear to watch these. Except for Selling is Service — now that’s internet greatness.

 @barrettrossie And service is selling.

@SpinSucks You do know that being with crazy footnall fans at a sports bar usually ends in an awkward pregnancy? 🙂

I just got sucked into some vortex of time and I can’t tell you what happened to the past 34 minutes. Damn, wonder if the Razorback nation abducted me again for making fun of them.
 
More importantly I want to let Jay Cutler know that for the paltry sum of $1 million per year I can fix what he has broken in that locker room and convince the fellas to block for him again.

 @thejoshuawilner I am telling you. He must have slept with someone’s wife and they are all out to get him. They’re horrible.

 @debdobson62 Poor hamsters. When they start going around as one little fur ball, I laugh every time!

@ginidietrich Gin and Topics! I have a feeling I could turn this into a book/debate/drinking club idea. #MyKindOfHobby

I watched those hamsters last night and damn near DIED I was laughing so hard. But, *ahem* you DO get the reference of the title, right….? “Two Hamsters One Wheel”…. 
 
And the selling is service video…? There really are no words.

 @belllindsay You know @jasonkonopinski sent that one to me? I get these little gems from him in the middle of the week and it makes me laugh, no matter where I am in the country.

OMG … I needed to laugh. Yesterday I was getting a massage with a masseuse I’d never had before. She wasn’t very talkative … taking her job very seriously as she was rather new at it. Well, about half way through as she was massaging my left hip the “cup” of her hand against my skin it made this perfect farting noise.    You know how in school or in church when you can’t laugh but you get this irresistible urge to giggle. Geez Louise, the urge kept returning in waves! I think I started to sweat.    Those hamsters… Read more »

 @Carmelo I AM DYING!!!!! LOL!! It’s a good thing I wasn’t there. I would have been busting up! HAHAHAH! That’s pure gold.

Carmelo

 @ginidietrich LOL…. it was awful, Gini. It was so intense I could feel her hands suddenly asking “what made this guy tense up so much?” I probably should have busted up laughing because she probably left thinking she did a horrible job on the massage! 
 
(and i wouldn’t have had to tip her so much either!)

So the Hamsters are one of the best things I’ve ever seen.  Is that your fav, G?
 
But…where do I even start with Service is Selling?!? The woman in antlers? The way the one woman has a cheat sheet? Or the fact they have to quickly edit away from the woman falling off of the chair? This was a great start to my Monday.

 @RebeccaTodd I want to know how the selling is service video gets made. And who wrote the script? And who decided the dancing down the aisles was a good idea?
