Weekly Time Wasters: The power of the combover

This week there is no theme or agenda. This is mostly because I’ve been sick and thusly unmotivated to come up with one. That being said, I have still found some pretty good clips for you this week at the expense of my health. I’ll take that standing ovation now.


Nothing sets the tone for a clip show like a bit of class. If you’re not into that, then you should look elsewhere. I discovered the term “Sharting” this summer when a friend and I were in Target. I won’t go into detail, but it was a lot like this.



A couple of weeks ago I featured Disney’s short film “Paperman,” which went on to win Best Short Film at the Oscars this year. I take full credit for this, but it turns out that the story is not quite original. I discovered this short film made in 2009 and actually prefer it to Disney’s version.


I have so many unanswered questions about this next clip. Why is this guy under a train? How did he get there? At what point did this seem like a good idea? Have we just discovered the next Steve-O?



A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, beings of all races traversed the galaxy. They had spaceships and lightsabers, lazer guns and giant metal war machines. They could fly faster than light itself, but despite all their technology, they never discovered the Internet.


This one comes with a NSFW tag due to the pterodactyl. This song, animated by The Oatmeal, is an undiscovered classic deserving of the highest honors and stuff. If youdon’t like naughty swears, it would be best to skip this one.


Most college students under 21 have considered, seriously or not, the possibility of getting a fake ID. I mean, how is a freshman supposed to get wasted? By begging upperclassmen to buy them booze? Frat parties? Two guys from upstate New York have found a solution: harnessing the awesome power of the combover. (Of course we here at Whim recommend that all freshmen and such underage folks keep their noses squeaky clean and never ever break laws of any kind ever.)
