    Please watch my new video "616 Easter Eggs In Loki You Missed"
    1) Loki is also the name of god of mischief in Norse mythology
    2) the show starts with a scene of Loki in the custody of the Avengers. This is a reference to the first Avengers movie where they defeated Loki.

    You ask the wrong question, you should be asking 'Will Falcon Shield SHIELD Captain Captain I am Groot, Captain?'

    I feel like this doesn't even count as a joke, you've probably just quoted some actual video.

    I want someone to create one of those hackneyed "top whatever" lists but then over the course of its hundred entries, the text becomes more incomprehensible, as if written by a neural network undergoing mode collapse.

    Heck, I want someone to make a career out of this. Every entry is standard assembly line schlock but with increasingly overt clues that something is not right. Make a whole ARG out of it, with a Doki Doki style descent into madness. Perhaps at one point the algorithm begins to gain a sense of self, and maybe even find love.

    Pronunciation Book was a youtube channel that sort of pulled this off. For years it was just one of those "how to pronounce argot, "how to pronounce Yves Saint Laurent" channels. After a couple years it started getting weird, like asking "How to ask for help in English" and then eventually started a 77 day countdown, leading to the revelation that
    it was related to some twitter account @horse_ebooks closing down.
    Kind of a wet fart of an ending, but it was a neat ride.

    I would assume that headline is just trying to get as many popular searchable words as possible to get more visits. Kind of like when I see headlines like "Winds of Winter release date solves this problem with Tyrion." But, of course, there is no release date, and possibly never will be. ;)

    By making a joke about SEO, Mike and Jerry have gotten us to jokingly spew SEO optimizing terms on their site. Genius.

    Which I wound up getting as a result when legitimately trying to check out whether there was a "duh" sound at the end or not. I still think of it whenever I see the word.

    This reminds me of the classic "Does Bruno Mars Is Gay?" article. If you read some of these articles it really does seem like it was done by an algorithm or at least translated by one.

    You can usually tell because it uses the "wrong" word for certain situations. Whenever a weird or confusing word comes up, try and think of another word that means the same thing but would also work better. One example I saw was an article about a member of the band "Ninja Sex Party", though in the article the band was referred to as "Ninja Gender Party" and referred to their other "musical rings" which took me a little longer to understand the article meant "musical BANDS". The rest of the article has more examples of this and is even inconsistent, using the words Band and Ring at different points.
