“My Blackberry Isn’t Working” and Other Literal Puns

BBC has a pretty decent comedy show called The One Ronniestarring the wizened eighty year old comedian Ronnie Colbert. While the comedian does feel a little guilty doing this show without his late partner Ronnie Barker (part of the The Two Ronnies while he was still alive), he is quite the riot as an old comic and manages to keep up with latest happenings to elicit that odd smirk or the riotous guffaw.

One of his latest sketches features him talking with an elderly grocer and general vegetable shop owner about how his blackberry was not working. Yes, he takes out the organic fruit, a blackberry, and asks the shopkeeper if there was anything he could do to fix it. The shopkeeper immediately asks him whether it ran out of juice! Hilarious puns and comedy that we’ve all grown accustomed to watching on the Beeb.

It is actually quite heartening to watch a comedy by elderly gentlemen stay in touch with the latest technology. While the sketch starts out with a blackberry, it goes into the territory of Apples and Eggs-boxes soon enough, giving you, the viewer, plenty of time to take in the jokes and laugh before proceeding to the next!

Wacky Twitter Video of Will.I.Am’s Song is Awesome

If you knew about Whirled Creative you wouldn’t be sitting here, reading blogs. You’d be out there with the cool folks, mashing art with technology and putting the rad in non-traditional. They created the Google Instants music video, and now they have made a video about #newtwitter. How cool is this video? Well, the folks at Whirled Creative have taken Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am and Nicki Minaj’s pop-rap song Check It Out and given it the #newtwitter twist.

The song starts with the group logging inas Will.I.Am (@iamwill), and works around as he tweets and clicks around #newtwitter.

With the song lyrics appearing in hashtags, searches @replies and inside maps, the video itself is an absolute must for anyone who feels like watching the super-rad mashup of current gen songs and current gen web technology.

It will, however, be very confusing for the old twitter user. It will also irritate users who have been wishing for a taste of #newtwitter for a long long time now. Why? Because the moment Will.I.Am asks for a redesign, he instantly gets the preview bar at the top of his bar. Guess the celebs get their wishes fulfilled everywhere, eh?

Check out the video here (Mild NSFW warning for language):-

No, really. The internet is filled with lame attempts to capture the essence of rap in a nerdy blogpost, so you can’t really blame me for trying (and failing).

According to the SecurityWeek, the contest which runs till the 30th of this month will be quite a ball:-

“If you have the skills and bust out the phattest rap, you’ll receive round-trip airfare for two to Los Angeles along with two days and two nights hotel stay to meet with Snoop’s management and learn more about his business. You’ll also get two tickets to a Snoop Dogg concert and a new laptop pimped out with Norton Internet Security 2011.”

Dogs + Yoga = DOGA

You have that lazy bummer of a golden retriever lazing around the house. You’ve tried everything to get that lazy dog up on its paws, but it merely refuses to follow anything that you say. So you give up and follow the old adage of if you can’t beat em, join emand laze around the house as well.

Now you have a tummy, and you want to get rid of it. But you cannot bear the sight of your lazy dog sitting around doing nothing while you puff and pant those calories off. So what do you do?

You practice yoga on your dog. Literally.

ExpertLeta Koontz has been studying yoga for quite some time and has become adept at the silly form of yoga with dogs as the inspiration. Here’s a video of one of the unimaginably ridiculous practices in action.

Warning: Using a Chihuahua is not recommended during DOGA.
