My friends and I used to look these up for fun when we were bored and I thought it was a good time. While I was trying to find ones to put on here, I realized how meaningless they are. Sure, I think they have entertainment value, but I've decided I don't want to spend any chunk of time viewing them. Some of them are so crass and pinhole certain cultures or types of people.

Some can be so clever while others are crass. They may not only reflect commonly held ideas about life but could potentially shape them too.

  2. Okay the smurf one had me dying! Fantastic!
