Project Absurd recently visited Monroeville Mall in Monroeville, PA, which was the site of the 1978 horror movie Dawn Of The Dead. Click here to see the article, which compares the mall now to how it used to look in the movie.

Professional wrestling sure has had its share of absurd moments over the years. Here are three video clips from the WWF in the 1980s that we recently found.
Hulk Hogan trains “Mean” Gene Okerlund for their upcoming tag team match against Mr. Fuji and George “The Animal” Steele (1984).
I’m not sure which of them is more annoying. I remember hating Mean Gene back then, but now I just find him amusing. Hulk Hogan has always annoyed me. I spared you the horror of watching the tag team match. Not that the match was that horrible, but the sight of Mean Gene in wrestling tights is just too cruel of a punishment for anyone.
Next, some of the WWF stars give their 1987 New Year’s Resolutions.
Good thing they never lowered themselves to using stereotypes. George “The Animal” Steele’s answer is my favorite.
Speaking of George, here’s a great clip of “The Animal” visiting the zoo (1986).

Messing around on archive.org we found this fabulous video from 1959 on having good lunchroom manners. WordPress won’t let me embed the video from that site here so I found it on youtube and have posted the youtube one instead. Enjoy, and if you want even more fun, click the link after the video to read the comments over at the archive.org site – including some comments from the stars of the video themselves!
1/25/09 UPDATE: Judging from most of the comments (in this and my Alien Abduction review), no one has even bothered to read my article before they post their reaction to the film. Everyone is just wondering if it’s “real” or “fake”. It’s neither. It’s just a movie, folks! That’s all it was ever intended to be. I thought that my article, plus the fact that the film’s creator added comments to the review, made that point very obvious. I would no sooner call this “real” or “fake” than I would Star Wars or any other science fiction movie. It’s just unnecessary. Now, please click on the link above and read my review of the show – I think you’ll enjoy it – and then leave a comment. Thanks!
