I just read that the Ice Bucket Challenge ALS donations have hit the $50 million mark.  How awesome is that?  Not only are good people everywhere donating to a worthy cause, but they’re providing me with endless entertainment.

If you know me, you know it’s not the nicey-nicey, pretty-pretty videos that I love – I prefer the fails.  Click below to see a bunch of great ones.

In addition to the fails, I am truly humored by a few different types of people I’m seeing over and over.  (I hate to stereotype, but it really does save time.)  I’ve enlisted a few folks you may recognize to show you what I mean.


  • The girl who loves an excuse to show herself in a bathing suit.

  • The good ol’ boy who may have had one too many sips from the jug before taking the Challenge.

  • The reluctant kid.

  • The over-reacting woman.


All silliness aside, it’s great to see people come together to support a good cause.  Each of the Miller goofballs shown above will be making a donation to the ALS Association in memory of Kenny Duane, a fun guy who would surely have made a hilarious video.  Join me!
