Cubs Fans Seem Like Nice People

I’m sure being an attractive blonde in a sea of drunken baseball fans outside of Wrigley is not a fun place to be. But to help take the reporter’s mind off the obnoxiousness surrounding her is this helpful, blue-and-red-painted citizen, who does so by pouring an entire bucket of water on her head. What a sweetheart (language warning: There are two F-bombs in this video, which is a surprisingly low number considering what occurs): ↵

↵That’s an excellent use of the “WARGH” effect at the end there. Here to help explain the “WARGH” -- a phenomenon that without which, the internet could not survive -- is Spencer Hall. ↵

↵The WARGH is an internet necessity you're intimately familiar with whether you know it or not. It's the slow motion replay of a painful/embarrassing face plant, fall, crash, or other high-speed accident involving someone inadvisedly putting themselves into a very bad situation involving hard objects, gravity, and their fragile bones. ↵

↵For fans of internet pain, the WARGH is truly essential. As funny as that kid on rollerblades completely missing the ramp and landing on the bridge of his nose was initially, on the second time through it's even better in slow-motion with someone yelling "Ohhhhhhhh duuuuuuuuuuuuuuude" in super-slow speak, as if he or she's just inhaled a whole balloon full of sulfur hexafluoride. ↵

↵

↵The video below contains several textbook examples of the WARGH in action. Warning: the video contains several dragged out profanities said in very low tones. ↵

↵The WARGH: amplifying internet funny since 1995. (Someday, it will be the topic of a Ph.D thesis, and we won't get a dime for naming its greatness. Damned skinflint academics.)↵
