Ponies On The Silver Screen

Hi Burgers,

Have you all heard of Brent Hodge and Ashleigh Ball’s (the voice actor for Applejack and Rainbow Dash on the show) documentary “A Brony Tale”? The film has been out for a while now and is one of the first documentaries picked up by the “Super Size Me” director’s new distribution label, Morgan Spurlock Presents! Bronies rejoice, this means that the film, detailing Ball’s first trip to BronyCon, will be coming to a 20-30 theater markets around the US.

If you’re not familiar with the film, check out the trailer.

Dear Internet, I’ll see your Lil’ Bub documentary and raise you one film about men who like My Little Pony.

The New York Times, Indiewire, The LA Times, The Guardian and The Wrap have all named “A Brony Tale” the number one film to see at The Tribeca Film Festival. If you need anymore reason to delve into the world of MLP, Robert De Niro has even apparently said it’s the film he is most excited to see. Robrony De Niro? Robert Di Broniro? Robert Dash Niro? Something like that.

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Caption A Penguin For The Greater Good

Hi Burgers,

If we can all agree on one thing, it’s that penguins are awesome. Right?

Well, maybe this guy doesn’t agree..

For the rest of us though, shenanigans like these only add to the aforementioned awesomeness. Maybe this particular penguin is just overly excited that this Friday (April 25th) is World Penguin Day, and “Orange Pants” just can’t handle the heat.

Mystery solved. In celebration of our perpetually tuxedoed friends, let’s try to flood Cheezburger with penguins! I’ve gathered a few penguin images below, click on any one to bring up a full size image and have at it, or upload your own penguin pics. These images are also uploaded into the Builder. Leave the URL in the comments and if we get some good ones we’ll post them up on the site.`

World Penguin Day is meant to both celebrate penguins and to raise awareness about the plight of these tuxedoed little birds as they continue to be affected by climate change. People must know the awesomeness of penguins so we can keep them shuffling and sliding around for many years to come.

Who knows, maybe one day a penguin will save the world.

Chicago Is The Funniest City In America

Hi Burgers,

The good people who wrote the book “The Humor Code“, which effectively breaks down the science of funny, have determined that citizens of The Windy City are the funniest in America. I’m thinking of a couple of factors that have led to this scenario.

Because Bill Murray, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and countless other comedic legends.
WACYjoX
The glory days of SNL contributed much to the canon of vaunted comedians.

When your winters are plagued with polar vortexes and giant ice boulders, what else can you do but laugh.

The last time the Chicago Cubs won the World Series, the Ottoman Empire still existed.
i.chzbgr
Because of the Mariners I will refrain from commenting.

Chicagoans ranked highest in frequency of visits to humor sites such as Cheezburger.
Normal Day at The Office
Boo-ya! Just another day at the office.

Peter McGraw, who led the study, said that humor “tends to have a local flavor” and people from Chicago display a “deadpan and quick-witted humor,” a lot of which gets directed towards the not so pleasant aspects of Chicago. Mix that in with some good natured Midwestern friendliness and there you have it.

Seattle awkwardly ranked tenth in this study, and was characterized as having a “snooty, intellectual” brand of humor. Ever heard of the Seattle Freeze? We’re funnier in the summertime, I promise.

Bravo to Chicago for being a classy, friendly, funny bunch of folks. Check out the full article here.

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Run On Marathoners!

Hi Burgers,

The Boston Marathon is currently underway and we at Cheezburger want to share our support of the pluck and tenacity of spirit that has led 36,000 participants and over 1 million spectators to take part in this historic event. That’s 9,000 more participants and twice as many spectators as last year.

In your face fear and adversity!

Bravo also to the winners of the Marathon, Meb Keflezighi from San Diego for the men and Rita Jeptoo from Kenya for the women. Meb is the first American to win since 1983 and Rita just broke a course record and bagged a third Boston Marathon victory. And I was proud of myself for eating oatmeal and only having two cups of coffee this morning..

Hoppy Easter Everyone!

Remember, 89% of Americans go for the ears first on their chocolate bunnies, so if you want to be a maverick, go for the tail.

Lil Apache Is Petite In Stature, But Grand In Wisdom

lilapache

Hi Burgers,

If we ever wanted to start a Cheezburger motorcycle gang (which we do), Lil Apache would lead our pack through high mountain passes. She would probably also adopt and feed some animals along the way. I’m picturing a goggle sporting raccoon in a side car. Win!

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
Well, my user name came from the fact that I AM a Lil’ (as in petite) Apache… I’ve had this user name for so long that it’s actually become a nick name as well… Some call me Apache… & some just call me Lil’…

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I believe I joined in 2010… I saw a LOL from Cheezburger posted on another site, saw the e-mail address on the LOL & came to Cheezland… That was when I very first started using a computer… Cheezburger is the first site I ever signed up to…

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
I enjoy all different kinds of humor, so I try to have a varity of friends… Of course I’m of a certain age… So some humor, (no offense) such as Bronies… Just aren’t my speed… By favoriting & voting for different styles of humor I’ve collected a vast variety of friends… When I see something I like, I find out who made it… Check out their profile & look at the LOL’s that they’ve made… If I like their style… I friend request them… Having profile information about yourself is a must for me…

Google It Up Everyone

Hi Burgers,

The Featured User post is on the way, but I quickly wanted to share this in case you haven’t visited Memebase today.

Googling has been leveled up.

You Should Adopt An Animal

Hi Burgers,

I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but adopting an animal really will change your life. This story about Schrödinger and his human Mike sums up the deeply gratifying and sometimes unexpected experience of suddenly having a permanent best friend.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_KClu8GCUA

The Sidekick Series is a great documentary project that tells lots of unique animal adoption stories. Check it out and then go find your new bestie.

Do we find them, or do they find us?

Cheers,
Cheezburger

We Belieb In Good Pranks!

Hi Burgers,

In an effort to make our CTO’s dream of being the ultimate Belieber a reality, his devoted team set up an awesome surprise for him while he was out of the office for a few days.

Day 1 began with a little makeover to his office.
IMAG0974
IMAG1001

Then of course they had to order this lifelike, full size cut-out, which scared the Bieb out of me as I was coming out of the stairwell one day.
IMAG1034

And finally, they filmed Mr. Brown heading into his revamped office, complete with Posters, portraits, the cutout and some Biebs jamming on his computer monitor.


He was about to say he hates Jello.

The Creation Of A Meme

Hi Burgers,

Remember the Can’t Hug Every Cat E-Harmony Video Girl? You know, the one that was responsible for all of these memes.

The good people at The Pet Collective caught up with her recently to talk about the lifestyle of one of the Internet famous.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doEgIarVPhs&list=UUPIvT-zcQl2H0vabdXJGcpg

The moral is, if you want a t-shirt with your face on it, all you need is 27,000,000 views on YouTube. Solid gold.
