How many half-naked dog-catchers
does it take to solve a crime? (hesitantly) Let’s talk about that? ♪ (theme music) ♪ Good Mythical Morning! On Thursdays we like to sit back, relax, and do a little fishin’. We throw our lines out
and hope we can catch a few question trout,
and then we reel ’em in. You see, we’re humane fishermen,
so we take those question trout, we put some answers in ’em,
and then we release ’em back out to continue
the beautiful cycle all over again. (silence) Is that it or are you done
with your crazy analogy – that I didn’t quite follow?
– That’s the circle of life. We asked you guys to ask us
advice about friendship, which has nothing to do with napping
or whatever I’m doing over here. Nothing to do with naps at all. First question, from Bthree Cox, asks: “What do you do if you
and your friend fight over a girl?” Okay, Bthree, we’ve got good news for you because, first of all,
most relationships end. And I would venture to say
that almost all relationships that take place in
middle school or high school – will come to an end.
– Ooh! So you just take your turn.
You just wait for your turn. I mean, that’s certainly what we did. I remember, in sixth grade,
I wanted to date Leslie Peebles. I mean, I didn’t want to date her.
I just wanted to go with her ’cause that’s what you called it. So I was in the library one day. I remember exactly where I was sitting,
when Maurice came up to me and he said, “Rhett is going
with Leslie Peebles.” And I was like, “Pffth.
Now I gotta wait my turn.” I wonder why Maurice had
to break that to you instead of me. – We had a weird relationship.
– (Link chuckles) Yeah. We communicated through Maurice. Maybe you didn’t know if I’d be upset,
but I wasn’t upset. I was just like, “I gotta wait my turn.” But then I started going
with Amber as my second girlfriend after Leslie was my first girlfriend
after she was your first girlfriend. But I had to wait my turn for Amber who was also my second girlfriend. – (Link) But second to me.
– (Rhett) But second to you. So I was first for the first,
and you were first for the second. – And look!
– It was totally fine! We’re all friends.
Well, not really. We’re still friends. And we talk about them
all the time, which is weird. – But let’s just try to put it behind us!
– So just wait your turn. Not make it awkward. This isn’t about us.
It’s about you. – Wait your turn.
– Okay, now it’s time to visit another weird website in a segment we call “The Internet Is a Weird Place!” Thanks to our friends
over at Squarespace. You know what we do.
We like to introduce you to a weird website and this week
we’re going to be exploring a website that epitomizes
the pinnacle of friendship. Sharing the same first girlfriend,
and sharing the same second girlfriend. No, that is a sign of friendship,
but it’s not the pinnacle. It ain’t the pinnacle. – The pinnacle is fighting crime together!
– Okay. This website is called TheyFightCrime.net, which was of course submitted
to TheInternetIsAWeirdPlace.com. Let’s go there right now. So basically it takes
two unsuspecting characters and puts them together
into a crime-fighting duo. Which is awesome! Like… “He’s a kleptomaniac paleontologist living in the sewers beneath London!” (Link) “She’s a fast talking paperfolder
with a terrible skin condition.” (Rhett & Link) “Together, they fight crime!” (Link) “He’s a forgetful
misunderstood novelist with a backpack full of scones.” (Rhett) “She’s a half naked dog-catcher
from the wrong side of the tracks!” (Rhett & Link) “Together, they fight crime!” (Link) “He’s a belly-dancing web
developer terrified of onions.” (Rhett) “She’s a forgetful
children’s entertainer prone to fits of blood-crazed rage.” (Rhett & Link) “Together, they fight crime!” You could do this all day. And we will, but it’s one thing
to just read these things, – it’s another thing to bring them to life.
– Ooh! ♪ (action music) ♪ (page flips) (Rhett) He’s a patronizing hairdresser
who speaks only in binary code. 001011111100. (Link) She’s a time-travelling dairy farmer with a magical ham sandwich in her pocket! (German accent) Where will
this ham sandwich take me next? Only time will tell. (sparkle chimes) (Rhett) Together… (Rhett & Link) They fight crime! ♪ (action music) ♪ (page flips) (Link) He’s a ditzy firefighter
with a love for bananas. Hey, what’s this thing?
A banana? I love bananas! (Rhett) She’s a Communist
receptionist with no thumbs. Who says you need opposable thumbs
to take down Capitalism? (Rhett) Together… (Rhett & Link) They fight crime! ♪ (action music) ♪ – (whistle blows)
– (Rhett) She’s a Nobel prize winning, over-worked lifeguard with
her own daytime TV talk show. You! Get a new life jacket! And you get a new life jacket! I’m so tired. (Link) He’s a disco-crazed cyborg chef, possessed by the spirit of his mother! (robotically) No one’s staying alive tonight. (whirring) (retches) (as mom) Don’t forget
to eat your vegetables! (Rhett) Together… (Rhett & Link) They fight crime! (page flips) Uh, I don’t recommend possession.
It’s not good for the neck. (robotically) No, it is not. (normally) Okay, Mythical Beasts,
we need you guys to continue to share with us your weirdest
websites that you can find on the World Wide Web
and submit them to us at TheInternetIsAWeirdPlace.com. Click on “submit a site.” If we choose a site that you sent to us,
we will credit you in the show. And remember, you can win an exclusive
The Internet Is a Weird Place T-shirt by designing and building your own website using Squarespace. Last month, the theme was “nerd”
and we’re happy to announce the winner of last month’s nerd theme
is nerd.averymiller.org. (Rhett) Congratulations! (Link) Whoo! Okay, now it’s a new month,
which means a new theme, a new assignment for you guys. This new theme assignment is “hero.” We want you to create
your own weird website – under the theme of hero–
– Yes. You’re gonna click
on “make your own site.” You’ll get a free trial at Squarespace
and 10% off the creation of your own website,
so we’re making it easy for you, greasing the skids for weirdness. And even the term “greasing the skids”
is kind of a weird phrase. But then, when you finish the site,
go back to TheInternetIsAWeirdPlace.com and click “submit a site”
and then you can be entered into the monthly contest. Another question! Another question about friendship. This one comes from Zane N.
He’s @dootist on Twitter. – “How do I actually make friends?”
– Hmm. How do you make friends? Okay, this is a hard-hitting question. This is important. We didn’t want to miss anything.
We wanted to be very thorough, so we decided to go to the gold standard – of all-succinct (emphasis on “ct”)…
– (copies Link) I was trying to say “succinct” and I– – You left the T off.
– I questioned– I questioned whether there was a T
by the time I was saying the word. Because it seems like
it would be succinct. To answer this question succinctly,
which I have not done already, we went to the place of succinct wisdom,
and that is wikiHow. Right, and we were so blown away
with the quality of the advice over there. We thought, “We gotta
bring this to the people.” We decided to do is verbatim
role-play this advice out to you on how to make friends. (Rhett) How to Make Friends:
According to wikiHow. Introduce yourself at the end
of the conversation. Hey, I wanted you to know
that I really enjoy this conversation that we’ve been having
over the past four hours, where I was able to tell you
about my deepest, darkest fear of being attacked by
a group of rabid hamsters, and you were able to tell
me about the time that you were attacked
a group of rabid hamsters. Hi, I’m Rhett. (silence) (trophy chime) (Rhett) Be yourself and don’t act
like someone you’re not. Hey, man! You’re a high-schooler,
I’m a high-schooler. This is, like, totally authentic! I’m a narc! (trophy chime) (Rhett) Believe in yourself, smile,
have a few laughs together. Hey, do you believe in yourself? – Yeah, do you believe in yourself?
– Yeah! (both laugh robotically) (trophy chime) (Rhett) Hold back a little bit
because you don’t want them to think that you guys are best friends. You guys aren’t yet after only a few days. Hey, man, it’s been cool hanging out. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Hold back a little bit. I don’t want you
to think we’re best friends. It’s only been a few days. (trophy chime) (Rhett) Keep private
information to yourself. It’s tempting to share your secrets
to forge growth of a friendship. Resist that urge. Hey, man, you know I’ve
been up in the forest, the one behind the library? That’s where I’ve been digging
this six foot deep hole. It’s gotta be big to bury
your boooody is a wonderland! (trophy chime) (Rhett) This has been

you’re not gonna believe it. – Oh, it’s beautiful.

but it won’t because the thong is gone. It’s the thong-gone flip-flop. – (Link) Get yours today.
– (Rhett) The thong is gone! – (Link) Thong is gone in the flip-flop.
