The Readers Take Over

In Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks, I asked you guys to send me some funny links as part of a giveaway. I wasn't expecting to get bombarded, but I did. You guys brought the heat with tons of funny stuff. This special edition of Hot Clicks will feature some of those items sent in by members of Hot Clicks Nation. We'll start with some photo galleries:
Submitted by Spike, of Boston: "Jimmy, I haven't seen you do the "Perfectly Timed Sports Photo" thing in Hot Clicks lately. Here's a great compilation."
Submitted by Matt, of Georgia: Nineteen People Who Just Don’t Care Anymore.
Submitted by Jimmy, of Washington: "This guy follows ridiculous Craigslist apartment listings in NYC. They are real."
Submitted by Jeff Laug, of Indianapolis: Childhood photos recreated.
Appealing To My Likes
Submitted by Vincent Vincenzo: "Playing into your Stern-aholic side (like me), here's a classic video from the late '90s -- Benji wears a dress to work. Can't believe he has a hot girlfriend. J.D. is much more deserving." (Solid job by Vincent, since I listen to Howard Stern every day and love J.D.)
Submitted by Adam Gasser: "Kramer ... chugging a beer while smoking GIF." (Never hurts to play the Seinfeld card.)
Submitted by Nick Dimichino: "This is more of a link for you, not necessarily for Hot Clicks. Just in case you haven't seen it in awhile, it's always good to be reminded this is a real life thing. (Nick knows I have a slight obsession with Mike Francesa and a way-more-than-slight obsession with the Mike Francesa Twitter account. Nicely done.)
More TV Show Submissions
Submitted by AG, of Glendora, Calif.: I thought this link would be appropriate given the revival of Arrested Development.
Submitted by Erik Marchion, of Missoula, Mont.: In honor of Arrested Development coming back to TV, here are the 18 best running gags from the show.
Submitted by Arlo Graham, of Toronto: "GAME OF THRONES AND BEER!"
Submitted by Justin, of Chicago: DrunkRonSwansom.com.
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Michelle Jennke :: James Macari/SI
Submitted by Daniel Farlow: "Jimmy, I don't know if you have ever featured Aussie Michelle Jenneke as the LLOD. If you have, you should again." Jenneke (who made last summer's best Hot Clicks videos list), has been featured before, but this seems like a good time to remind you that she was also in this year's SI Swimsuit Issue.
Submitted by John Annibal, of Tucson, Ari.: Here's a link that I thought you might enjoy. You might want to think twice before ordering out for pizza.
Submitted by Rye Fraley, Statesville. N.C.: Local news covers this hard-hitting and possibly NSFW-work story with massive fervor.
Submitted by Jeremy: "While the cause itself is not at all funny, the fact that this gentleman is drinking a McDonald’s coffee while striking at McDonald’s is priceless."
Ric Flair Video Of The Day
Submitted by Mike Galasso, of Arlington, Va.: "I know you had one of these last year, but can you really get enough tributes to Ric Flair's "Flops."
Fake Trailer Video Of The Day
Submitted by Jeff Musshafen, of Hickory, N.C.: The Gordon Bombay ESPN 30 for 30 trailer.
Eating Video Of The Day
Submitted by Andrew King, of Pembroke, N.C.: "Hey, just wanted to send in this older link of a five-pound gummy bear eating challenge.
Human Trick Video Of The Day
Submitted by Matt Nelson, of Apple Valley, Calif: "Pommel Horse."
The Weekend Playlist By Tom Mantzouranis
Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone. Even though it's going to be cold, rainy and miserable in New York City, this week's playlist is all about making your holiday barbecues a little more fun. Play it for your guests and watch things get lively. And to kill two birds with one stone, I celebrate the return of Arrested Development this weekend on Netflix with one of the great party-starting songs of all-time, Arrested Development's "Tennessee."
As always, click any of the song links to listen, or you can just subscribe to the Hot Clicks Nation playlist on Spotify. Every Friday, the playlist will automatically change to that week’s selections, so the new music will come to you. Let me (Tom Mantzouranis) know on Twitter what you like and what you do not. (Warning: NSFW language in some songs.)
Guns N Roses, "Nightrain"
The Clash, "Rudie Can't Fail"
Mikal Cronin, "Weight"
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, "Orchard Of My Eye"
