Let’s check out some Funny Or Die stuff shall we? I’m pretty sure if you’re reading this you know what FOD is, if not then you will probably not stop visiting the site until your old, crinkly fingers can’t click-a-da mousey no mo. But by then we’ll have chips in our head so whatevs.
SO, FOD was founded by Will Ferrell and “Gary Sanchez Productions” (which is Adam McKay’s company). The idea (by Michael Kvamme) is the readers read an article, or watch a video and vote that it’s “funny” or they can click “die”. If enough people click “die” that particular piece goes to the crypt.

Peace, Love, and Hilarity,
