What's the point? -- You might have first heard of this site a few months ago when "The Landlord" video was all over the place. (In it, a toddler named Pearl chews out Will Ferrell for not paying his rent, to hilarious effect.) But Funny or Die is more than a one-hit wonder. The site, the brainchild of Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Hench, features videos by professional actors and comedians as well as everyday folks, but thanks to a voting system, if the videos are not funny, they, well, die.

What to look for --Based on votes, the videos end up with such rankings as "Chosen Ones," "Immortals," "The Crypt" and more, and you can see lists of the videos by these categories. Not all of the videos are safe for work, so use caution when surfing the site.
