Take 2 minutes for the funniest commercial about guns you'll ever see.

It's like TripAdvisor, but for criminals.

Watch the video for a full-on laugh-out-loud experience. If you can't right now, scroll down for the gist ... and then some. Please note that THIS IS PARODY. But yes, it is a real, working website that's definitely worth visiting.

A new website is making it easier than ever for criminals to know which states have the loosest gun laws.


Want to get locked and loaded to fire off some bad decisions? CrimAdvisor should be your first stop.

It tells you which states make it easiest to buy, carry, and traffic firearms.

Places like Arizona...

...where you can visit the world famous Grand Canyon...


Because he would fail it.

It also tells you which places make it harder to get your hands on a gun.

Like California...

...with all their silly rules and regulations to keep people safe.

Whether you're a small-time crook or a rising arms trafficker, CrimAdvisor is a must-use resource.

OK, how funny was that?

It's not easy to bring levity to an issue as serious as this one, but with Funny or Die on the job, I wouldn't have expected any less. But let's not forget that gun violence is a serious and devastating problem:

In 2013, there were 11,208 gun-related homicides in the United States.

And despite a strong majority of Americans showing support for universal background checks, Congress has failed to pass a law that would achieve that.

Allowing states to decide how to handle gun safety laws is ... not smart.

Take Massachusetts, for example. They have some of the toughest gun laws in the country, which has reduced gun ownership rates. Yippee! Right? Well, you know there's a "but." Mary Elizabeth Dallas of CBS News writes:

"After Massachusetts passed a tough law restricting gun use in 1998, gun ownership rates dropped sharply, but violent crimes and murders increased. The influx of firearms from nearby states with weaker firearm laws could be to blame..."

I'm all for states' rights. But gun violence has no borders. Let's put some rules in place that we can all live by.

Sometimes the smallest gesture can turn your entire day around. You find a $5 bill in the pockets of your jeans. There's no traffic on the way home from work. Or by some divine intervention, you get 11 chicken McNuggets in your 10-piece box.

Of course, if you've ever had such a blessing, you know your first thought is, "Must be some sort of mistake."

But do you return the extra McNugget? Nope. You don't even feel an ounce of guilt for it. You dunk it in barbecue sauce and relish it like a gift from the gods.

A former McDonald's employee in Edmonton, Canada let the world know that sometimes an extra McNugget is not a mistake and he's become a viral hero.

When Iowa Valley Junior-Senior High School principal Janet Behrens observed her students in the cafeteria, she was dismayed to see that they spent more time looking down at their phones than they did looking at and interacting with each other. So last year, she implemented a new policy that's having a big impact.

Children in middle school can be super shallow when it comes to fashion. To be part of the in-crowd, you have to wear the right shoes and brand-name clothing, and listen to the right music.

The sad thing is that kids that age can be so creative, but they're forced into conformity by their peers.

Some people never escape this developmental phase and spend their entire lives wasting their money on material goods and judging those who do not or can not.

They say that kids say the darnedest things, and seriously, they do. Anyone who has spent any significant amount of time with young children knows that sometimes the things they say can blow your mind.

Since teachers spend more time around little kids than anyone else, they are particularly privy to their profound and hilarious thoughts. That's why NYC kindergarten teacher Alyssa Cowit started collecting kid quotes from teachers around the country and sharing them on her Instagram account, Live from Snack Time, as well as her websiteand other social media channels.
