The ultimate aim of good satire is to parody an unintentionally funny event as accurately as possible, while spicing it up with a little exaggeration and sarcasm.

We all know him as the witty hybrid of Johnny Carson and George Carlin; the anti-religion, anti-South, pro-drug, pro-leather suit godfather of televised political satire. But did you know that there was once a whole decade where Bill Maher was as cool and relevant as Tim Allen at a Sleigh Bells conc ... More >>
The first annual Winter Teva Mountain Games went down this weekend at Vail, and some of the first video edits are already popping up. Not surprisingly, the flashiest are from the Telemark Big Air & Biking Best Trick contests. Chad Kagy -- a BMX star best known for dominating events like the X Games ... More >>
