Top 10 Humorous Science Videos of the Year

I was starting to compile a Top 10 list of best humorous Science-related videos of the year.  And I got stuck on #1 because it is so so so good.  But I was able to find some others I liked (and listed them in no particular order)… so here goes.  If you know of other good ones please post/tweet …

1. Bad Project video from the Zheng lab.  This is simply awesome.

2. Top 10 quirky science tricks for parties.  I found out about this from Twitter … and it is very good.

3. Cracked.Com has some funny spoofs, though usually not about science.  Here is one I found about science, sort of.

4. The Onion has some great science spoofs of course.  I found this one but there are many more.
Brooke Alvarez Has All The Answers, Even About Particle Physics 

5. Colbert has some brilliant Science spoofs.  This one however takes the cake in a way: Colbert nuclear explosion

6. Robotic Operation (which I found through

7. OK – so it’s very very long.  But there are some funny parts – the 2011 Ig Nobel Award Ceremony

8. Abby Harrison is very funny. … I first saw here microorganism stand up stuff but I think this one is better.

9. OK so this is not the funniest video with Brian Malow but it give some background on “The Science Comedian”

10. And perhaps my favorite – from the Daily Show — Science – What’s it up to?

Please suggest others …

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
