Bill Cosby Does Shakespeare’s Othello? Or Does Trial by Mass Social Media Via YouTube, Twitter and Facebook Major Fail Continue?

YouTube, Twitter and Facebook  –

That’s right. Bill Cosby has turned to the Bard to defend himself against the mounting accusations made by more than a score of women; all claiming to have been drugged and raped by the famous philanthropist, doctorate holder and comedian. 

This after Bill Cosby failed to rally social media to his side by calling for memes to defend him. Instead, they attacked him with memes. Therefore, this time around, he is turning to the more traditional media: the stage. 

In addition to producing an Off-Broadway production of a classic Shakespearean play, Bill Cosby has agreed to play the staring role, portraying Othello himself. 

However, it is reported that the production of Bill Cosby’s Othello has been delayed.

“Theater owners are refusing to rent out any venues to Mr. Cosby,” said a production assistant, while whispering. “You know, because of all the accusations.” 

Bill Cosby has also run into some difficulty casting the role of Desdemona, Othello’s beloved and allegedly drugged counterpart in the play. 

“No one is showing up to the open casting calls either,” said the production assistant, while still whispering. “Again. You know, because of all the accusations.”

Gangnam Style Lifeguards from YouTube Celebrate Rehiring by Making Another Gangnam Style Video

Go-Go Gangnam Style
Los Angeles, California –

The 14 lifeguards fired for allegedly misusing city property when they made a Gangnam Style after-hours workplace parody video that went viral on YouTube got good news today. When in a three to two city council vote ordered the city manager to give them their jobs back.

Anxiously wanting to express their joy at being exonerated, however, the lifeguards could think of no better way to celebrate their victory but to return to the place of their former employment. 

There they set out to reenact the Gangnam Style video, which got them into trouble in the first place.   

“As soon as the lifeguards heard the word that they were going to be rehired, they gathered at the community pool,” said police.

Unfortunately, the lifeguards acted prematurely because the city manager’s office had not yet properly processed their reemployment paperwork.

Police were called after an eyewitness reported seeing a suspicious group of young adults dressed in swimwear at the city plunge.

“They’re dancing Gangnam Style at the front gate of the aquatic center,” said the 911 caller. “And they got a pair of bolt cutters. And they’re video taping themselves with cell phones, too.”

“Apparently the lifeguards mistook the city council vote to reinstate them as tacit approval to use city property as they saw fit,” police said. 

Police caught the lifeguards trespassing on the community pool property and in the act of video taping another Gangnam Style video.  

Details of the arrest was caught on tape. However, if you are looking forward to watching the latest version of the lifeguards’ Gangnam Style video on YouTube like the first one, you will have to wait awhile as it has been confiscated by police as evidence.

“They cut the lock and entered the pool unlawfully,” said police. “So they’ll be charged with breaking and entering, damaging city property, trespassing and filming within the city limits without a permit.”

Herman Cain’s Subliminal Message Hidden in His Political YouTube Ad: I’m Not Just Blowing Smoke Up Your [BLEEP], Baby!

Herman Cain’s Manager
"Just Blowing Smoke"?
Madison Avenue, New York –

Everyone is abuzz about Herman Cain’s controversial political campaign ad, which features his campaign manager (left) blowing cigarette smoke into the camera.

Many have formed theories as to what it could mean, but only one man, a former Madison Avenue ad executive, claims to know what it is all about.

“What is Mr. Cain saying to the American voter?” said Albert Brayne, a retired ad executive who specialized in subliminal advertising. “That’s easy. He’s saying: ‘I’m not just blowing smoke up your [BLEEP], baby!”

According to Brayne, Cain’s controversial political campaign is peppered with hidden images of the female buttocks.

“Only they flash on the screen too fast for the naked eye to see,” said Brayne, who has analyzed the Cain YouTube ad frame by frame, using specialized equipment to confirm his findings. “But they’re there, as plain as the nose on your face. You just can’t see them.”

Brayne says that although the suggestive images are invisible, the mind’s eye can still see them. Leaving a formidable and lasting impression on the mind of the average person.

“The untrained eye of the general public is most susceptible to subliminal advertising,” said Brayne. “Making them most likely to buy into any message without question.”

Only people, like Brayne, with a trained eye are able to detect subliminal images or messages without the use of optical enhancement equipment, seeing them for what they really are.

“Of course, there are exceptions to every rule,” said Brayne. “For example, sex maniacs. They are able to see sexual subliminal images without the use of any special equipment.”

In fact, they plan to upgrade the red flagging system to help better identify videos containing violent images posted on its website.
