To be fair, we doubt there are many people in this world who would enjoy having fruit projected at their face from a small (but powerful) cannon.
Lisa Kudrow really, really doesn't enjoy it though.
During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Kudrow and fellow guests Jessica Chastain and Victoria Beckham took part in a game called "Flinch".
Basically, they had to stand behind a plastic screen and try not to react when James Corden fired a piece of fruit at them from very close range.
There were no winners, but it's fair to say Kudrow, who was too scared to even face the glass, probably came in last. Read more...More about Funny, Uk, The Late Late Show With James Corden, James Corden, and Victoria Beckham

A family-owned jeweler thought it had a funny, witty take on an old adage so the company put it on a billboard.
Spicer Green Jewelers' cheeky sign told motorists "Sometimes, it's ok to throw rocks at girls..." What the owners thought was an innocuous phrase invoking nostalgia and promoting the store's diamonds and gems quickly turned into a storm of outrage.

Sarah Silverman wants to get to know the real America.
The comedian will star in a new topical talk show called I Love You, America, Hulu announced Monday.
The 10-episode series, from Funny or Die, will be a weekly half-hour topical show to discuss the current political/emotional landscape of the country.
"While it's great to connect with like-minded people, Silverman feels it's crucial, now more than ever, to connect with un-like-minded people," Hulu said in its release about the show. "She is ... creating a show setting out to expose the fact that we are all the same. Oh, and it will be funny too." Read more...More about Comedy, Tv, Hulu, Funny Or Die, and Sarah Silverman

Remember that Twitter thread last year about the random things that make people's dads angry?
Well, Sunday brought something similar — but this time it was mums in the spotlight.
Please tell me the most irrational thing that annoys your mum? Mine can't stand archaeologists? All them degrees to dig up someone's garden?
