Got a bit of time to kill? Looking for a cheap laugh? Check out these funny YouTube videos and enjoy.
Wake Up Prank The setting: a minibus travelling home the morning after a bachelor party. The victim: sleeping off the effects of the night before. The plan: let's scare the crap out of him by swerving the bus and screaming like we're all going to die. The results: worth watching.
The title of this video says it all: a baby pulling off some of the fiercest ninja moves you're ever likely to see. Very cute, and very funny.
Best First Dance
There's no shortage of quirky and inventive "first dance" videos doing the rounds on YouTube - some of them are lame, but others are good for a chuckle. In my opinion, this is the best one.
Dramatic Prairie Dog I couldn't make a funny YouTube videos list without including at least one animal video. There are millions to choose from - honourable mentions must go to the sneezing baby panda and any number of cat videos - but you'll struggle to find any funnier than this Prairie Dog with acting skills any daytime soap star would be jealous of.
Catch Phrase Funny The contestants on the UK version of this popular game show were unsurprisingly taken aback by the puzzle presented to them. Even the host can't control his giggles as things begin to look more and more suspicious.
Dad at Comedy Barn It might take you a little while to realise exactly what's so hilarious about this video. The comedian certainly isn't particularly funny, but the audience members he drags on stage can't seem to hold it together. Keep watching for a couple of minutes to find out why they can't stop laughing.
