For a good laugh, surf the web

March 14, 2011 – The beauty of the Internet is that it is ever-changing, and there is always something new to discover.

Recently, I came across a site appropriately named ifyouwatchitbackwards.com, which is devoted to providing a good chuckle to movie and television fans everywhere.

The premise is that story lines in reverse create a completely different and humorous outcome. For example:

“If you watch The Wizard Of Oz backwards, it’s about Dorothy escaping Oz by running away from the Emerald City and getting home to Kansas in a flying house.”

Or, “if you watch Pretty Woman backwards, it’s about Richard Gere transforming Julia Roberts into a hooker.”

And my favorite, “if you watch Scarface backwards, it’s about a man who gives up cocaine and crime to follow his dream of becoming a dishwasher to earn enough money so he can visit Cuba.”

The site is a relative of reddit.com, and is updated frequently, so even the latest Oscar nominations have been added. And if you’re clever enough to come up with your own backwards movie or television show, the site welcomes submissions.

You can become a fan and “Like” them on Facebook to lend your support and help spread the word. Simply link to ifyouwatchitbackwards.com/submit for more information.

And while you’re there, have a good laugh.
