ONE-UPPED!

I just found this really funny website called OneUpMe.com.

Every day, a two-part sentence is posted on the website, and users (anyone with a Facebook account) try and one-up the original sentence. The results are pretty hilarious.

Some recent examples:
ORIGINAL: He was like a semi-colon: noncommittal.
1UP: He was like a semi-colon: a sideways glance showed he was usually joking.
or
ORIGINAL: She was like a walled city: unnecessarily defensive.
1UP: She was like a walled city: you could only get in with a Trojan.

Not only is the site just plain funny, but it also has a cool back-story – it was founded and is still run by Jesse Eisenberg! He’s the guy writing all the sentences! If you are unaware, Jesse Eisenberg is the guy who stars in Adventureland and The Social Network. For some reason they don’t mention the site on his Wikipedia page, but he does mention it in interviews here and here.

ALSO does he not look a LOT like Michael Cera?! They both play the same nerdy, socially awkward character in a lot of their movies. There is an amusing article comparing them here.

Enjoy!
