Adele's 'Hello' Parody by Billy Eichner and James Corden
Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Adele returned from a nearly 3-year break by releasing her new hit single Hello. Within days of being uploaded to YouTube, Hello became one of the most popular songs of the year. As of writing this post, it now has more than 193 million views on YouTube, which is pretty impressive to say the least. Well, Billy Eichner from TruTV's Billy on the Street and James Corden, host of The Late Late Show, created a parody of Hello in which the two funnymen are seen dressed up as Chewbacca and Han Solo while they talk about Halloween.
“I’m in California, dreaming of how we used to be,” sings Corden. “When we were Han and Chewie, we’d walk ‘round the neighborhood with whip cream and TP.” Adds Eichner: “There’s such a difference between Milk Duds and a Milky Way.”
You can check out the full 3-minute-long Hello parody by Eichner and Corden below.

Funny Feline Photos from National Cat Day
No, we're not kidding. There really is a National Cat Day. Held annually October 29th, this special day is intended to honor and celebrate cats for the love they give, while also encouraging individuals and families to adopt rather than buy their feline companions. Of course, there's a good reason for this holiday: the Animal Pet Products Association (APPA) estimates that roughly 35% of all households in the U.S. own a cat.

The Longest Oop with Eminem, The Detroit Pistons
The Detroit Pistons aren't exactly known for their humor. Besides, why do they need to be funny when playing professional basketball? Well, that didn't stop the Pistons from teaming up with famous rapper Eminem to produce a new video. Produced by FunnyorDie, the video follows a basketball as it travels through more than 20 people, many of whom are famous celebrities, over the course of 20 days. In addition to Eminem, the video even stars Glenn from The Walking Dead.

SNL Writer Launches Funny Sports Website
Bryan Tucker, one of the lead writers for the long-running TV show Saturday Night Live, has launched a new website that's dedicated to funny sports news and clips. Known as The Kicker, it takes a different approach to sports news by making it funny. And unlike many other sports news websites (or any news website for that matter), The Kicker places an emphasis on original content. This means you won't see the same rehashed content that's found on countless other news sites.
If you're skeptical of the site, just check out some of the featured content on the homepage. It's pretty funny to say the least. The "Sexual Gruden" page, for instance, features adult-oriented memes of former NFL coach and current broadcaster Jay Gruden.
"The Kicker is the new sports comedy online destination from the co-head writer of Saturday Night Live Bryan Tucker, and premier online comedy network Above Average. Dedicated exclusively to creating original and highly-shareable sports comedy videos, articles, images, and digital content, The Kicker features top athletes, comedians, and film & TV stars," wrote The Kicker on its website.

"Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, "Never take candy from strangers." And then they dressed me up and said, "Go beg for it." I didn’t know what to do! I’d knock on people’s doors and go, "Trick or treat." "No thank you."" -- Rita Rudner"This Halloween the most popular mask is the Arnold Schwarzenegger mask. And the best part? With a mouth full of candy you will sound just like him." -- Conan O'Brien
