The Funny 115 - version 2.0
And this is where Matty does something which is... well... a
little bit memorable.
then he lets out one of the most bizarre, unique, distinct mocking
laughs I have ever heard in my life. Seriously, I have no
where this sound comes from. I'm not sure it is even
even exist in nature. Matty just opens his mouth and it
like a duck got raped.
Ah ha ha ha ha ha.
swear to God, I just rewatched Matty's weird laugh about 30 seconds ago
and it still kills me. I've seen it about twenty times and it
never gets old. I have no idea how this guy who is usually so
composed can pull off that sound.
And then what's great about
this scene is that Matty doesn't stop there. Even though he's
about 106 years younger than Bob, he thinks it would be a good idea to
keep on taunting the old guy.
Matty lets out another one of his weird laughs.
At this point even Jeff Probst has to finally step in. He tells Matty to shut his pie hole and stop laughing at the old guy.
"Matty's gonna be laughin' his way right to Tribal Council... You need to stop jabberin' and start concentratin'."
I know what you're probably saying. You're probably reading
and thinking, "Well yeah, okay Matty has a weird laugh. I
that's kind of funny. But #86 on the Funny 115 funny?
Really? Better than Coach's Poem? Better
than the Almighty BobDawg?"
Well the entry isn't over yet, my friend.
No, what makes Matty's weird laugh so epic, what makes it so incredibly memorable and hilarious and awesome, is the fact that-- two episodes later-- the weird laugh comes back!
And it comes back in an even better form!
It's the episode ten immunity challenge, and Matty, Corinne,
and Kenny are competing to build what is more or less a giant row
of dominoes. They are supposed to stack wooden boards in a
(while maneuvering around ropes to get to each section), and whoever
can make their stack fall from domino one all the way to the end will
And... again... there's no way you can appreciate what happens
next until you hear it.
Matty starts taunting again
Matty is climbing through his ropes about midway through the challenge, and he decides to let out his weird high pitched little warbling laugh again. To taunt the other competitors.
Only I swear to God, it doesn't sound like a laugh.
This time... it sounds more like a turkey gobble.
I shit you not. Matty Whitmore opens his mouth, and
he gobbles. He fucking gobbles.
There is no other way to describe the sound that comes out of
if there is one moment that you need to see (hear) in person, it is
Matty's turkey gobble in episode 10 of Survivor: Gabon. It
happens quick, and if you aren't listening for it, you might miss it.
But once you hear it there is no way you will ever watch
again and not look forward to it.
I don't care if it
was just edited in from episode 8 (or some other episode) or not.
I have no idea how a sound like that actually comes
a human being.
P.S. Okay I suppose I better bring this up because a lot of people have asked me about it recently. Yes, there is a YouTube channel where all the Funny 115 moments are all being uploaded. One of the fans of the Funny 115 is posting videos for every entry, just like someone else did for the original Funny 115.
I bring up the YouTube channel here for three reasons:
The first reason is that no, I have nothing to do with the YouTube
channel. That is a fan created site, I have
nothing to do with it. I appreciate that the videos are there
because they are fun for people to watch, but please stop asking me
when I am going to put the newest videos up. I have no
over any of that.
2. You'd be surprised how many people ask
me this question, but it happens at least once or twice a day recently
so I figured I better clear it up. Yes, the Funny 115 came
and then the YouTube videos came afterwards. It is not the
other way around. The YouTube videos are only there as an
homage to the countdown.
Again, you would think that would be obvious from the way
are written, but you would be surprised how many emails I get about
this every week, asking why I am "ripping off" the YouTube channel.
Despite everything I just said, the YouTube channel is awesome and
really well done, and the guy who does them is putting a lot of work
into it. And if there is -one- video you need to see rather
just read about it, it is Matty's weird laugh. Words just
do it justice. Just go check it out on the YouTube video
he gets around to posting it. You won't regret it.
P.P.S. Oh yeah, and I know the other thing you
thinking when you are reading this. You are probably thinking
you write about Matty and not even mention his smile?! Dude,
what's up? His smile is as weird as his laugh!!!"
Well never fear, my friends, because Matty's smile gets its
entry later. :)
"Hey you guys hear that? You hear that garblin'?"
