Hitler is very upset about The Keg losing its liquor license. At least that’s what he says in this YouTube parody, one in a long line of spoofs where the dialogue from the German-language film Downfall is replaced with subtitles related to whatever the creator finds most funny. In The Keg version, created by Sherman Ave, The Fuhrer is apoplectic over Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl’s decision to pull the bar’s liquor license over repeated violations of underage drinking laws. “And you call ME an authoritarian leader,” Hitler says. The video, which had been viewed nearly 14,000 times as of 11:30 a.m. today, includes other choice bits of dialogue, including Hitler’s rant that, “I want a sweaty, anonymous, drunk, and forgettable dance hall hookup!” …

Take a look at pictures from Operation Smile's Comedy Show, which raised money for cleft lip and palate surgeries.
Northwestern University's chapters of Operation Smile and the undergraduate pre-medical society hosted a comedy show fundraiser entitled, "Last Comic Standing!" The event took place at Prairie Moon on March 8 with a mission to raise money for corrective surgeries for children around the globe with a cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities. The event raised more than $170, enough money to complete one surgery. Seven students performed in the comedy show: Kelly Kraft, Simon Kameraw, Andy Hobaugh, Chloe Cole, Nigel Ng, Sean Kane, and Alec Khan. But at the end of the show, there was only one comic standing. Hobaugh took home the prize, winning over the audience with his jokes about bad language.
