Anything on Funny or Die actually funny?

I love the Between 2 Ferns sketches with Zach G., but everything else on that site seems brutally unfunny.

Am I missing something?

Links to prove me wrong?

Yes

Ummm...how was that funny, R1?

The simple answer: no.

The site was established to give comedy stars like Will Ferrell and Ben Stiller a venue for web-friendly, subversive comedy.

Unfortunately, what it's now become is an outlet for outlying members of that comedy clique to post pet projects that only they find funny.

Worse yet, a backbone of the site at its establishment was the "funny" or "die" buttons, which allowed any user to instantly vote a video "up" or "down", curating the site by proxy.

But now, if a video has even the most tangential celebrity connection, it is ruled a "chosen one" and made immune to the opinions of the average viewer.

One of the most egregious examples is linked below, so unfunny it's physically painful.

R2 Sometimes I do not exactly hit the ball out of the park when I am being the Paula Prentiss Troll. Sorry. It's a hit or miss thing sometimes.

All that being said, the Between Two Ferns sketches are utterly hilarious. Especially the Natalie Portman edition.

This one is more hot than funny but funny nonetheless:

Those videos by the Franco brothers are painfully unfunny.

Why did Ferrell do that Mexican movie? His fans are NASCAR dads, and they don't read subtitles.

This commercial parody with Mandy Moore is funny.

Their celebrity videos are mostly navel-gazing bores, but the TV show Billy On The Street that they produce is awesome.
