8. DPN Takes a Shot at Art Modell on the Anniversary of “The Move”, Maybe Goes Too Far.
I thought this was downright hilarious. Some folks said this was done in poor taste. Your opinion?
7. Brian Kenny Tell Everyone What It’s Really Like To Be A Cleveland Browns Fan
We just posted this yesterday, but it still makes the cut.
6. Loyal, A Lorde Royal’s Parody by Lauren from the Alan Cox Show
This was really funny. The girl from the Alan Cox Show put together a cover of the hit song Royal’s by Lorde. And it pretty well encompasses the Browns season, and puts most of our position in clear lyrical form when it says that we’d cut Weeden if we weren’t just drunk’s in the Muni Lot.
5. The Angry Browns Fan’s Christmas Album
This was just downright hilarious to me. After a mess of a season, our friend Angry Browns Fan put out his “A Very Angry Browns Fan Christmas Album.” With songs like “Weeden the Red Haired QB” and a very catchy number about “Releasing Greg Little” to the tune of Feliz Navidad, this album would probably go diamond or triple platinum if release in the Greater Cleveland Area.
4. Mike Polk’s Garage Sale Advertisment Featuring T.J. Ward
You had to know that Cleveland Comedian and Factory of Sadness master Mike Polk was going to check into this list somewhere. In this special, he put together a TV Ad for his Garage Sale, with special celebrity endorser T.J. Ward. With special deals on things like a broken alarm clock and blow up “female companion”, this is a side splitter. Also funny is the disagreement at the end over Ward’s going rate for endorsement spots.
3. DPN’s Shot At Steelers Fan in Ohio
Probably the first “really funny” moment in DPN’s proud history of sarcasm and satire came when I made this stupid Homer Simpson graphic mocking the Steeler’s fans in Ohio for their pathetic excuse for “loyalty”. You may recall, the Steelers season started off with four straight losses, and I noticed that Steelers fan’s around the state suddenly, for lack of a better way to phrase it, shut the hell up. So, I made this picture, which went super viral, accumulating millions of views and over 100,000 shares on Facebook.
2. The Browns Fan’s Craigslist Ad for a New QB.
Just read it:
Hello, and thanks for reading.
Have you played pro football? College ball? Highschool? Pee-wee?
Have you played Madden before?
Do you sort of kind of know some of the rules of football? If yes keep reading. If no…well also keep reading! We will take ANYONE. This could turn into a regular gig for the right person.
The Cleveland Browns as you may have noticed are having problems scoring points on offense consistently. We are deciding that we actually want to win this year and that we have a real shot at it too. 3 wins in 6 games!? We were expecting maybe 1/3 of those wins for the whole year, but SOMEHOW we have a shot still. Here’s the thing…our defense is sick nasty, but we’ve got problems under center…well one problem. Brandon Weeden. If you’re sick of seeing desperation heaves to the sidelines, countless sacks after superb coverage, and underhanded lightly tossed interceptions in the 4th quarter then please come apply! If you can throw a ball, come apply! If you can’t, come anyway! We can teach you the basics….throwing the ball to the guy who has the same color shirt as you. Throwing the ball reasonably close to a receiver that’s WIDE OPEN, throwing the ball more than 3 yards on 3rd and 16. Think you got what it takes? Come on down! You’re the next contestant on Cleveland Quarterbacks!
Please no redheads, people named Brett, or any U. Of Florida alum.
1. Life-Long Browns Fan Dies, Ask Team to Send Pallbearers So The Browns Can Let Him Down “One Last Time”
Cleveland Browns fans are famously sarcastic and come equipped with our own sense of humor. But, Scott Entsminger may have outdone us all when he got one last sarcastic one liner in on the Browns. Not only did Scott take a beautiful jab at the Browns in his passing, but he did it so smoothly, so eloquently, hidden in the middle of his obituary. I can’t do it justice, so just read the Obituary yourself (bolded section):
Entsminger Scott E. Entsminger, 55, of Mansfield, died Thursday, July 4, 2013 at his residence. Born January 8, 1958 in Columbus, Ohio, he was the son of William and Martha (Kirkendall) Entsminger. He retired from General Motors after 32 years of service. He was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band. A lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder, he also wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team. He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time. Scott was a fun loving, kind and caring man who enjoyed gardening and fishing but his greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family. He is survived by his wife of 16 years, Pat Entsminger; a son, Aaron Entsminger of Columbus; a brother, Bill (Kathy) Entsminger of Grove City, Ohio; a sister, Lois Courtright of Galloway, Ohio; a sister-in-law, Carol Ferrall of Georgia; four nieces, Kristi Nunamaker, Allison Courtright, Emily Ferrall and Ashley Ferrall; a nephew, Benny Entsminger; his three dogs, Blackey, Shadow and Jezebel; his step mother, Lil Entsminger; a special aunt, Ginny Entsminger; and several cousins and other dear relatives. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother-in-law Harry Courtright. Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at the Life Celebration Reception Center, 129 South Main Street, Mansfield, Ohio 44902. Friends may call one hour prior to the service, from 1-2 p.m., on Tuesday. The family also encourages everyone to wear their Cleveland Browns clothing to the service in honor of Scott. The family suggests that something be planted in his memory.
