College Humor was roasting Facebook

If you like social networking jokes, you’ll most likely find this video funny as it makes fun of not only Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and Foursquare, but also JDate, Friendster, and Reddit. After MySpace takes a few hits, it gets up to roast Facebook and ultimately fails. Reddit points out that MySpace uses Facebook Connect now, which seems like a pretty sore subject for MySpace.
A roast is an event where a person, the guest of honor, sits back as comedians insult them, tell stories about them, and sometimes praise them. In any case, it’s usually embarrassing for the “roasted” party, but pretty hilarious for the audience.

Comedy Central is famous for these hosted ‘roasts’ of celebrities such as Hugh Hefner, Gene Simmons, Chevy Chase, William Shatner, Flava Flav, along with countless others. This past week College Humor decided to jump into the game by roasting the worlds most popular website, Facebook.

The reason why the video is listed as NSFW is because of a raunchy joke that Gilbert Gottfried tells about Myspace. You’ll need to check out the video for yourself below to hear the joke and the roast.

Comedy Central is famous for its roasts, and has roasted such stars as Hugh Hefner, Gene Simmons, Chevy Chase, Pamela Anderson, and William Shatner, to name a few. College Humor decided to do its own sort of roast by roasting Facebook.
