Funny Or Die has done a lot of things to warm my heart -- <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2012/05/tom-brady-funny-or-die" target="_blank">pissing off Tom Brady</a>, <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2012/05/kris-humphries-is-a-douchebag-doesnt-make-kris-humphries-less-of-a-douchebag" target="_blank">making Kris Humphries call himself a douchebag</a> and <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2011/09/maybe-this-is-what-happened-to-blackstreet" target="_blank">threatening to kill Blake Griffin with a miniature puppet version of himself</a> -- but none have made me quite as happy as watching 1996 Olympic gold medalist and pro wrestler Kurt Angle trying to get back into the 2012 games.
