New Video! Kegel Championships

I've got a little news here: we are no longer going to be officially updating every Tuesday. We'll be moving to a less rigid schedule, basically just uploading videos whenever they are ready. This isn't all that bad, though, because some weeks when we have simpler shorts, we may upload several in the same week! And then every now and then, it might be a few weeks. We will still absolutely be updating on a regular basis.

We're all just doing this for fun in our free time, and there have been several times when we felt like we rushed some things to have videos ready by a certain day, and we've decided that we'd rather take a little more time and have more quality output.

To recap, we will be updating, not necessarily less often, but less regularly. Speaking of:

Minor Site Updates

Oh hello! I didn't see you there!

Underneath every video, you'll now see new, rad little retweet and share (on facebook) buttons. These aren't really any different than the "share!" button that was there before, except they look a little cooler and they have REAL TIME COUNTERS! And I know nothing gets the masses more excited than statistics, because I went to college.

So if you like what you see here, please click these buttons, tell your friends, and get them to subscribe to our facebook page. Because if I know anything about the internet (I don't know anything about the internet), it's that youtube views are basically currency.

Guys, new video is up.  And we're really excited about this one, you guys.  We think it's the best short we've done so far, and let me tell you, guys, I think you guys will agree you guys.

And it's still Tuesday!  Normally we'll try to update at like 12:01am on Tuesday, when it first starts, but sometimes we're late.  But this one's worth it, you guys.

Brief downtime, woopsies

The site was down for a bit today due to some dns issues.  My bad.  Everything should all be resolved now, especially if you're reading this on the main page.  

In unrelated news, I found a pretty rad picture from high school that I'd like to share:

I'd also like to remind everyone that, if you haven't already, you can like us on facebook and subscribe to our youtube channel, or our rss feed for the latest updates, behind the scenes happenings, witty one liners, etc, etc.

New Update Tuesday!!: Crying While Eating

Back on schedule, baby! And this one's a winner, for sure. Not that they aren't all winners, but this one is ridiculous we are particularly proud of. See for yourself:

As a side note, I really enjoy that this one's available in HD.  This is what HD is made for, i'm pretty sure.

Actual news!:
There have been TONS of changes here at Funny Shorts recently.  First, thanks to some great suggestions and feedback from you, the viewer, I have implemented several new features on the website.  Most importantly, there are now comments displayed on every video page!  And a link to leave a comment yourself!  That's right, now we can all discuss the shorts, or politics or whatever, right from the video's page!  We are still using youtube's commenting system, but have integrated it into this website for easier access.  Hopefully it's not too confusing.

You can also now see how each video is rated and how many views it has!  And, even cooler, you can now sort the videos by date OR popularity on the all videos page.

If you happen to head over to the about page, you may notice a few new biographies up from additional cast who have appeared (or will appear) in our shorts!  Check them out, check out their websites, and let them know how funny they are!

You may also notice that we have a new producer, John Nemec.  John's a great guy and will hopefully whip us into shape and keep us on schedule (ahead of schedule, even!) and generally do all the work while we sit around and drink.  Just kidding, of course--I prefer to do my drinking LYING DOWN.

Anyway, like I said, lots of changes here, for the better.  Thanks again for everyone's support and the great feedback we've received.  We have some really.  good.  updates coming in the next few weeks.  And possibly even after that!

Go forth and comment on stuff!

Live and Learn

note to self:  when shopping, be sure that, if you only buy one food item that you can snack on instantly without cooking or preparation, it's not cookies.   I'm going to be so fat in like twenty minutes.

Unrelated-- look what we have now:

News Flash/Interim Update

I've started using the word "rad", like, all the time. But it just started literally a couple of days ago. I have no idea what happened. rad.

Oh also, here's a bonus video since I missed updating on Tuesday.

Next week we'll be back to regular, quality programming. Seriously. Next weeks is a good one! Check back.

Love, Geoff

No update today :( :( :(

Sorry guys, it's Tuesday! And that means new update! Except, there won't be any updates today, because I am still out of town. I fly back tomorrow, though, so I promise something new on here before the end of the week. And my promises are basically money!

In the mean time, you should go back and watch all our old videos, find your favorites, and tell your friends how funny they are.
