Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet. Funday links will open in a new window.

While looking for something entirely unrelated, I ran across some funny animations on YouTube, so that’s the theme this week.

Funny Hippo Song [del.icio.us]

It seems like most really good animation comes from France, which is where this hippo and dog are from. They seem to be part of a larger series (this video is actually kind of a one-off), which you can find in the related videos section. They speak French, but the sight gags are obvious enough.

Question stupide No. 1: Les pingouins volent-ils? [del.icio.us]

Stupid Question No. 1: Do Penguins Fly? Another French animation. Be sure to watch through the credits for the little treat at the end.

Backkom: Running Machine [del.icio.us]

Backkom comes to us from Korea. There are quite a few Backkom videos, but this was the funniest one I could find (I didn’t try too hard, most of the others are kind of dull, in my opinion). You can see them all on RG Animation’s website (click on Animations, then TV Shows).

Gopher Broke [del.icio.us]

I hungry gopher uses his brain to get a free lunch. Too bad there’s no such thing…

Born to be Alive [del.icio.us]

A humorous video about a suicidal cat. No really, it’s funny. It’s also French, and to understand the joke at the end, you’ll need to either speak French, or read the comments for this post (where I have posted a rough translation).

  1. Okay, so what’s the joke at the end of Born to be Alive? Thanks to my wife (who vaguely remembers some French from high school), the woman says something to the effect of, “That was your first life. Good luck!”
