Martin Freeman (Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and BBC’s The Office) was the host of Saturday Night Live this past weekend. So naturally, the idea emerged of a Hobbit/Office mashup. If you’re familiar with both, you may find this humorous.

Hilarious Video of the Week: A Bad Lip Reading of “The Walking Dead” Season 4

I love these Bad Lip Reading videos with a passion that’s disturbing. So much good stuff in here. (Singing “Mister Potato Head likes…to punch me…” Genius.)
