Patton Oswalt First

Ahead of his latest gig as host of the 16th annual Webby Awards, Patton Oswalt found time to analyze the history of an age-old Internet phenomenon known as "Firsting."

In the Funny Or Die sketch/promo for the awards show above, Oswalt hosts a VHS-quality program called "In Search Of..." which aims to find the first person to comment "First" on an Internet message board.

As it turns out, that record belongs to "First"-lover and second child Donny "Diamond" Ruiz -- also played by Oswalt -- who has big dreams of being the first in everything (including the First Man).

Watch the video above and catch The Webby Awards online live in HD on May 21 at 5:30 EST on the Webby Awards website.
