Hope Springs Eternal for Chicago Cubs Fans in 2015

the infamous play in the 2003 National League playoffs in which Steve Bartman interferes with Moises Alou (newfangled computer technology was used to remove the rest of the crowd, so you could focus only on Bartman and Alou)  see Catching Hell: The Steve Bartman Story


Hello again everybody, this is Jimmy Fungus.  Recently, due to my severe melancholia, I have stopped following much of the sports world.   However, I have been a diehard Cubs fan most of my life.  I don't recommend it at all.  The Cubs are cursed.  Statistically speaking there is no way to explain why they have not won a championship in over 100 years, other than the fact that they are cursed.  In fact, I think some of the curse rubbed off onto me...  Either that or I was cursed to begin with and by being a Cubs fan, I made the Cubs curse even worse.



"It hurts to live" meme (via the internets)


Welp, whatever.  Here's this week's video...







Katie Couric's triumphant appearance on "The Late Late Show" with James Corden


And so we tumble gracefully into our next topic.  The other day I came up with the idea to do a video at my very own youtube channel on the best internet memes in the history of the internets.  But being that such a video will be a massive undertaking, I decided to work on it a little bit at a time.  I could make exciting new memes... put them here on jimmyfungus.com, tag each post "internet memes"...  then in 9 years or so go back through all the posts and make the video.





new BRUSSEL SPROUTS meme







new STAY PUFT meme


Okay, there are 2 new memes.  So pass them around so they become famous by the time I make that video.  And this video below is part of this week's memes too, so go and spread that around like it's the bubonic plague as well. (Incidentally, it is also the first ever episode of Funguspiece Theater on youtube.)






God bless you all, and please remember to support your local zoo.


Good night.

  1. It's good to see Lord Fungus promote a British product like Kit Kat, although a real lord might look down on a confection consumed by the common rabble. Do Americans eat Kit Kat? If so, what beverage do they drink while eating it. I would like the answer to be 'milk'.

  2. It would be way too much of an undertaking to try and come up with a list of the best memes. As much as we joke about their staying power the fact of the matter is that barely any memes that were used even a few months ago are still used. Memes I saw years ago barely ever exist anymore. Kinda a shame because some of them were pretty fun.

  3. I didn't know you're a Cub fan too! I had tickets today but it was rained out. I'm trying not to be discouraged by Sunday's game. The bullpen looked good and these rookies will develop and . . . . Aw fuck, here we go again.

    1. I haven't been following the team lately, but yes... I'm a Cubs fan. I don't put too much hope in young prospects myself. I remember when Corey Patterson was supposed to be the next Willie Mays.

    2. Ah, Patterson. So much of this game is an eye for the strike zone. You either have it or you don't.

  5. I know about the Curse of the Billy Goat because my mate Dimi was Googling his last name at school - old Billy Sianis popped up ;)

    I started following the Red Sox in 2005, the year after they broke the Curse of the Bambino. So I'd like to say I know how you feel... But I can't :P
