Our first must-see clip this week has so much going on that it's hard to pinpoint why it's so amazing. Of course Will Ferrell crashing a live talk show is instantly funny. Awkward situations are also pure comedy gold, so Will screaming at the top of his lungs at John McEnroe is great as well. But perhaps the best thing about this clip is seeing Will disturb crotchety old "Power Lunch" host Bill Griffeth. For guys like me who never got the childhood satisfaction of seeing your crabby neighbor stomp out a flaming bag of dog poop, this is the next best thing.
"American Idol" auditioned thousands of hopefuls in Miami this week and one guy really stood out as the absolute worst. This poor fella somehow got it in his head that he's a pimp (hence his theme song: "Pimpin', Pimpin', Pimpin'"). The only conclusion I can draw from this character study is that it's truly hard out here for a pimp.

NBC aired a two hour special this week showcasing the strangest entries in The Guiness Book of World Records. If you didn't catch it, you missed some really stupid categories, like "Most T-Shirts Worn At Once" and "Most Bubbles Blown With Tarantula In Mouth". But you also missed some classic footage of America's favorite morbidy obese motorcycle riding twins. You can check out the highlights from the special below, but be warned: if you are squeamish, stop watching halfway through the fat twins. You don't want to see the grand finale. Trust me.

Finally this week is a parody of the internet phenomenon known as "Obama Girl". This time around we are treated to an attractive female voicing her support for Mike Huckabee. The video is hilarious until you remember that everything she's saying is true. Then it just becomes downright scary.
