Though only parents and maybe a handful of Underwoodian kids watching would understand the parody, Sesame Street pretty much nailed House of Cards in a skit about the Three Little Pigs. Frank Underwolf stars and recreates the same feel of the political drama — soliloquies, political plotting, etc — only with muppets instead.

For every awesome life hack and tip you see on the internet, there are thousands more that seem so complicated that they seem like they would make life harder. This parody video by KipKay — who actually comes up with awesome life hacks — hilariously pokes fun of those types of useless, ridiculous tips. Like using your sandals to hold your gun. Or a blowtorch for butter.

I understand that when you take a picture or video with your phone, it makes a lot of sense to hold your phone upright. It's more comfortable! It's totally natural! Although Instagram has helped fix portrait mode pictures by squaring them off, we still haven't solved the portrait video problem. It's awful to watch videos like that. Everyone who does it is just a bunch of scrubs.

Because we don't have any real-life superheroes in this totally lame world of ours, we obsess over the lives of silly celebrities with beautiful cheekbones and photoshopped curves and cry over athletes wearing fresh laundry. It's what we call fun! But if superheroes existed on Earth, all those puny humans would never make the cover of magazines ever again. We'd obsess over superheroes all the time.

I'm sure the new Onion's TED parody is funny, but I was just too impatient to sit through all that talk about how we consume, digest and poop out news even before they are fully written. So I jumped to the end, when a dog eats an apple pie, a moment I've waited to see in detail since they released their series trailer.

The iPad Mini is almost here, and the advertising onslaught from Apple is already beginning to overwhelm my ears, fingers, nose, mouth and eyeballs. How many times can people hear about small and nice and powerful the iPad Mini is until they realise it’s neither as small as the iPod Touch nor as nice as the iPhone 5 nor as powerful as the full-sized iPad?

We see overly specific, overwrought stock photography all the time. Like who ever decides that a picture of 'hot girl in business suit crying because she's trapped under cables' or 'guy in forest eating an ice cream cone while a bear lurks in the background' is necessary? Those pictures (or things like it) totally exist!

The iPhone 5's most notable update is a taller 4-inch display that finally provides a proper way to enjoy 16:9 content. But what if Apple didn't stop there? What if the iPhone 5 had been given a 5-inch display, or a 10-inch display, or maybe even 30 or 40 inches as this parody demonstrates?
