We Interviewed the Wrong Dave Matthews but Now We Know What a Paralegal Does

When we learned that one of our interns had booked us an interview with the legendary Dave Matthews we were far beyond excited. Dave Matthews, the world renowned singer songwriter and fearless leader of the Dave Matthews Band, was coming to our office to spin a yarn or two about his long career. Maybe he’d get comfortable with us and tell a spicy personal tale about him doing whippits with the trumpet guy. Things took a different turn when Dave Matthews, a 51-year-old father of three from Berwy

End of an Era: I Just Hit Bob Dylan With My Car

The genre defining career of Bob Dylan was brought to an abrupt and tragic end just moments ago after the legendary singer songwriter wandered into the path of my 2014 Toyota Camry. To be fair, it was pretty dark out. Dylan, whose monolithic repertoire of songs includes such classics as “Like a Rolling Stone” and “Blowin’ in the Wind” was for decades considered the voice of his generation. It’s a shame that he didn’t use that voice to warn me that I was about to run him over. Those who knew h

Boy Scout Unaware Old Woman He's Helping Cross Street Is Alice Cooper

LOS ANGELES — Local Boy Scout Matthew Bolz allegedly did not realize that the old woman he aided across the street yesterday was actually heavy metal icon Alice Cooper, sources reported. “I saw this really feeble lady with skin so pale she was almost translucent, struggling with her cane as she waited for the light, and offered to help her cross the street. She smelled like Halloween and cigarettes,” said Bolz, a Tenderfoot Scout from Troop 231. “And she must’ve been crying before I got there,

Barista Wishes More People Would Care He Is Gotye

NEW YORK — A barista at a New York City Starbucks struck a somber tone yesterday, wishing that more of his customers would care that he is actually the Australian singer/songwriter Gotye. “I know it’s been nearly a decade, but ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ was huge when it came out,” said Gotye while mixing a venti caramel frappuccino for a high school student. “I’m not asking to be treated like the pope or anything, but the occasional, ‘Hey, it’s that guy!’ would be nice. The closest I’ve com

Biden Inauguration Secured by National Guard, One Pissed-Off Sound Guy

WASHINGTON — Capitol security officials announced this morning that the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden will be secured by 25,000 National Guard Troops and one incredibly pissed-off sound guy, D.C. sources reported. “We are committed to ensuring a safe, incident-free inauguration day, which is why we’ve made the decision to deploy the National Guard and sound-guy Mike Chopski to the Capitol,” said inauguration security advisor Yvonne Struthers. “It may seem drastic, but deploying Mr.

Facebook Adds New "Wow This Is Pretty Racist but You're Also My Dad" Reaction

MENLO PARK, Calif. — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this morning that the social media giant is launching a new reaction option to allow users to express their conflicting feelings over racist posts made by their parents and loved ones. “Actual conversations with your parents and older family members about what is and isn’t appropriate to post are uncomfortable, tedious, and not easily tracked and sold to advertisers,” said Zuckerberg. “We felt that it was important to allow our users t

Weezer Fan Eats Parasites off Pantera Fan in Exchange for Protection

DENVER — Local Weezer fan Andy Chaplin ate mosquitos, lampreys and other parasites off of local Pantera fan Chad Stern’s back yesterday in exchange for protection from other aggressive metal dudes, sources reported. “I would’ve been torn apart by that pack of Mudvayne fans if Chad hadn’t stepped in and charged three of them. He offered to keep protecting me so long as I agreed to live on his back and keep his skin clean. How can you say no to free protection, no rent and an endless food supply?

I Thought This Couple "Looking for a Third" on Tinder Wanted a Three-Way but Now I'm in a Rush Tribute Band

Call me old fashioned but when I first saw that Tim and Annie Lebowitz were “looking for a third” on Tinder I thought that they wanted someone to join them in a casual threesome. I thought they were just a Jim and Pam looking for their Dwight but it turns out they were Geddy Lee and Neil Peart looking for their Alex Lifeson to round out their Rush tribute band. To be fair I don’t speak a word of Italian so when I read on their bio that the ideal candidate could proficiently play La Villa Strang

Sellout! This Loser Has a Job, House, Car, Wife, Kids, Stable Income, Friends, High Self Esteem, Good Health…

Uh-oh DIY gang, it looks like we have a sellout on our hands! Pat Jenkins, former guitarist of the now-defunct legendary hardcore group Risk Damage, was just spotted leaving a Barnes & Nobel in Geneva, Illinois. The once hardcore legend turned thirty-five-year-old dumb loser sellout was spotted walking over to his 2019 Mercedes while holding a gift meant for his “child.” “My wife and I are very proud of our daughter for being an avid reader at such a young age,” said Jenkins, the stupid fuckin

We Scored This Awesome Interview With Tom Morello After Hitting Every Button on the Elevator

It’s not every day you get to interview a legendary guitarist like Tom Morello. You never know when an opportunity might strike so when we ran into the mastermind behind Audioslave and Rage Against the Machine in a New York City elevator last week, we knew we had about 30 seconds to make this happen. So we gathered ourselves, calmed our nerves, and hit every button on the elevator panel. The Hard Times: We can’t wait to see Rage Against the Machine reunite at Coachella this year! How did that c

Stoned Man Prepares for Another Year of Staring at Home Exercise Equipment from Couch

CHICAGO — Local stoned man Berry Smith announced today that he looks forward to another productive year of staring at his treadmill, hand weights, and medicine ball from the comfort of his couch. “My fitness goal this year is to not have a fitness goal. It did wonders for my mental and physical health last year, so it only felt natural to keep it up,” said Smith while lighting up a joint on his couch. “I’ll still walk, run, and bike when I feel like it — hell, I’ll even go hiking every now and

God Confirms Bible Takes Place in ‘Spy Kids’ Universe

LOS ANGELES — After years of speculation, God finally confirmed at a press conference today that the events of the Bible, the Holy Book central to all of Christianity, have always taken place within the same cinematic universe as Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids films. The statement was made after the Holy Spirit announced at the same press conference that he and Rodriguez would begin collaborating on a new project. “Rob helped me punch up the first few drafts of the Bible, and in return I helped h

Republican Senator Recalls Tragic Day Marijuana Shot Abraham Lincoln

ATLANTA — Incumbent Georgia Senator David Perdue claimed yesterday, during a debate with Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff ahead of the January 5th runoff election, that he would be more on-board with the legalization of recreational marijuana if it wasn’t for the drug’s role in the assassination of former President Abraham Lincoln. “I simply cannot condone the legalization of a drug that murdered Abraham Lincoln in cold blood,” said a tearful Perdue while gazing into a locket necklace with Abra

My son is useless. There, I said it. The boy can’t hold down a decent job or find a girlfriend, and only seems interested in ruining my legacy. It’s clear that my son will remain a loser for the rest of his life, so it’s time for me to cut my losses and move on to something better. Every dollar you donate will go to helping me replace my disgusting, worthless son with a cool alligator.
