This Week's Top Comedy Video: Sex Toy

Remember: It’s not the length of the comedy video that matters, it’s how hard it makes you laugh. Besides, you didn’t want to spend more than five seconds watching a sex toy fly around the room anyway, did you?

The rest of this weeks comedy videos, including your brain as a gun, Fred Willard as a baby, and a familiar New Year’s eve scene, can be found over at Splitsider.
