Real Time with the Fake AP Stylebook Guys

Twitter may bring friends, celebrities and news headlines together, but sometimes there are those that take themselves way too seriously--like the the AP Stylebook tweets by the Associated Press. The Twitter feed provides an ongoing online guide to a proper stylistic tips for journalists. (Example: "Lowercase arthritis, leukemia, etc. Capitalize a name associated with a disease such as Alzheimer’s disease.") 

Yeah, little known fact: professional journalists don't really know how to write. That's where the AP Stylebook comes in to tell us the correct way to spell things out and when to capitalize certain words.

So it was only a matter time before a group made a parody version. Meet the Fake AP Stylebook Twitter which always manages to bring a hilarious twist to seemingly serious notes on American journalism. (Example: Do not write that someone "sported a mad boner" unless you have sourced documentation of the madness of said boner.)

Attack of the Blog! recently caught up with the two founders of the Fake AP Stylebook, Mark Hale and Ken Lowery, to get the lowdown on their comedy project and their personal pet peeves.

(Our latest favorite Tweet: When writing front-page headlines, make sure they are clear, can be read while spinning and move the movie's plot forward.)

How did the Fake AP Style Book Twitter get started?

Mark: Ken showed me the real AP Stylebook's Twitter feed, since he knew I had a bit of a journalism background, and I checked it out and replied "I'm not sure if I'm sad or relieved that this isn't a joke feed," And off we went.  He wrote a fake entry, I wrote a fake entry, he started a feed for it, and here we are, three weeks and 48,000 followers later.

Ken:  We've done joke feeds like this before (@zombiehorde, @thisreallyhurts, @forevercon, and others), and mostly they were exercises in comedy, not unlike improv prompts. "Tell this kind of joke in this style. Now do a new one every day." For whatever reason, this is the one that blew up. Quite by accident, I'd like to add.

Fail Time with FAIL Blogger Ben Huh

We live it, we love it and we say it: FAIL. Life is full of epic fails, and fortunately for us, there's only one blog out there that documents it all.

Attack of the Blog! spoke with FAIL Blog founder, Ben Huh, who also runs other viral sites like I Can Haz Cheezburger, Graph Jam and Engrish Funny, to talk about being a part of the 2009 fail meme and his favorite videogames. (Sorry, readers, I don't think he's a Sony fanboy.)

You successfully brought about the Lolcat meme with the I Can Has Cheezburger site. What sparked you to create FailBlog.org?

Technically, I didn't create it, although it was a rather unknown site before we bought it. Simply put, I thought it was a funny site and I wanted to branch out beyond I Can Has Cheezburger. We're now up to almost 30 websites, including Hawtness.com and UgliestTattoos.com, both slightly NSFW.

Behind the People of People of Walmart

Oh, People of Walmart. Your blog exists to remind us what the United States of America is really about: not freedom, not the right to bear arms, but good deals, better personalities and the best class you can find around the world.

Attack of the Blog! recently caught up with the trio behind People of Walmart, a hilarious site dedicated to showing the world all the weird, strange, and downright "is that for real?" customers of America's shopping supercenters. Check out what Luke Wherry, Andrew Kipple and Adam Kipple had to say about their viral phenomenon.

How did you guys get started on the People of Walmart site?
The three of us needed some stuff at our local South Carolina Walmart. So we headed out on a Saturday around 2 p.m. or so. We were walking through the dairy section and saw an overweight woman wearing a pink tube top, short shorts with her ass hanging out, stripper boots, and her 3 year old was on one of those child leashes. A light bulb went off.

What do think it is that draws these characters to Walmart? There are just so many Walmarts across the country that you are bound to see a few crazies every once in a while. Apparently it happens a lot more often than one may think!

Kenan ThompsonIf you're anything like me, you love Kenan Thompson. You grew up watching him light up the boob tube on various shows on Nickelodeon and as an adult you giggle uncontrollably every time he takes center stage on SNL. Yes, you love Kenan Thompson, some would say to an unhealthy degree, but not me. I say you love him just enough, which means you'll totally dig this interview in which Mr. Thompson talks about his roots as a dramatic actor, what it's like dealing with the pressure of doing a weekly, live show in front of an audience of millions, who kisses better Lady Gaga or Madonna, his new movie Stan Helsing and the possibility of a Good Burger sequel.

How did you get your start in comedy?

I didn’t really start in comedy; I started in drama, basically, but I always kind of had a funny bone. I was doing a lot of theater for a long time in Atlanta. I went to a performing arts high school where we were doing a lot of dramatic plays that we’d write, but I got hired to be the new black kid on The Mighty Ducks. That was my first job. I guess that was a comedic kind of role; I had some funny lines and stuff. They introduced me to the Nickelodeon people, and there was some more comedy there. It’s been comedy from then on out. But all my training has been in drama.

How did you make the transition from kid-oriented fair on Nick to Saturday Night Live?

I guess, I grew up. You can’t stay at Nickelodeon forever. I would have loved to have stayed, but at some point you have to move on from being a kid to being an adult. I was already an adult, paying bills and dealing with drama like anybody else. Luckily enough, I had a chance to audition for SNL and that’s all it took.

What’s it like in the Saturday Night Live writer’s room?

It’s fun. We have half of a floor at NBC, so it’s a bunch of offices and usually people share an office with a writer and collaborate with different people, pitch your ideas to different people. If they like it, they’ll help you write it and if they don’t, they’ll be like “Yeah that sounds great,” then walk to their office and close their door. It’s a funny place: it’s a super stressful environment but we’re all young, and we’re all in it together, so we band together and get through it. It’s kind of an amazing experience.

Actual Great Moments in De-Evolution: Dyson Bladeless Fan

When you want something from the future to work now, look no further than Dyson. Yeah, that vacuum company that somehow built a bag-less and suction-less hoover or something like that.

The other day, Dyson announced their latest invention, the Air Multiplier Fan that somehow through magic (or Air Multiplier technology and physics), generates a strong breeze without any visible blades.

As high tech and futuristic as this new weird fan can be, here's where it takes a step back in evolution. This thing costs over $300. THREE HUNDRED BUCKS! Plus shipping and handling!

Dyson, when will you learn? Technological development is supposed to help humanity move forward with cool lifestyle changes, not break the bank! If you're offering innovative uses of science for domestic purposes, then try to think with a more logical brain (or wallet). Try to create something that can help the mass population. Build something accessible to all. We're in the middle of a recession right now. The last thing people need right now is an overpriced fan.

Speaking of which, does anyone have $300 I can borrow? I really want one of these.

After a great tragedy people find solace in each other. We all grieve in our own ways. Some learn to appreciate what they have while others want to point fingers. Stormtroopers are no different. They are people just like us. Correction: they are genetically altered clones, just like us. See how these Stormtroopers cope after the loss of the Death Star.
