Return of The Best of the Web!

Hi Gang!

Awhile back, I started sharing

my favorite websites and various funny things

I came across on this wacky thing we call the internet. Because I'm chronically disorganized AND

got knocked up

, I let these enjoyable posts languish.

Now that I've given birth for the third and final time--hallelujah!--I'm resurrecting this feature. Thanks to the hilarious folks I

follow on Twitter

, I've been made aware of countless wells of comedy gold, and it seemed a crime not to share 'em! Below, you'll find a smattering of the people, places, and things that have made me smile in the last few weeks. I hope it brightens your Monday morning!

1. Lafayette's stellar dance moves

Despite its hit-or-miss track record, I've stayed true to

True Blood

. One reason I haven't jumped

2. Shmoney Dance via John H. Norman III

So, despite being ancient, I am in love with the

4. Drunk History on Comedy Central

Now, I actually enjoyed just about all of my history classes, but there's a great many folks who think the subject is completely boring. Enter

Drunk History

, where inebriated folks regale us with their (surprisingly accurate!) knowledge of historic events while actors reenact the stories, complete with slurred speech, muddled mispronunciations, and boozy burps. Best idea since sliced bread and I


wish I'd thought of it. 

Season 2 of Drunk History

just began July 1st, but you can

watch the entire first season on Hulu Plus

. I suggest you head there immediately.

5. Nap Time: Race Against the Clock (by ME!)

One random afternoon, my husband and I decided to take one of my nutty ideas and turn it into a reality. The end result is this silly video about the frenzied rush to get as much done as possible while Baby is napping. This was incredibly fun to do, so be sure to

That concludes this week's selections of hilarity! Can't wait to bring y'all more reasons to smile. :)
