This Week's Top Comedy Video: Joad Versus The Potato

Rounding out the rest of the week's best comedy vids over at Splitsider: a US president who's never seen Rocky, arcade prizes you'd never see coming, and the last guy you'd want to see in a job interview.

Other highlights from this week in comedy:

- We proved - using science! - that 30 Rock is a better show than $#*! My Dad Says.

- Conan returned to TV, at long last. We sure missed stuff like this.

- The Simpsons was renewed for an absurd 23rd season, and we discovered a very credible conspiracy theory connecting the show to 9/11.

- We talked about why most comedy movies just aren't all that funny.

- Community had one of its best episodes yet, including a brilliant little Easter Egg for fans to discover.

- George Bush came back into the news, much to the delight of late night comedians.
