HBO Claims Stake In FunnyOrDie.com


HBO has bought a minority stake in funny-ass website, FunnyOrDie.com. And thats not all! They've also ordered 5 hours worth of online tomfoolery that will be broken up into half-hour episodes on their network.

Their stake is said to be less than 10% out of FunnyOrDie's approximately $100 million worth. I'm sure the fact that Will Ferrell and Judd Apatow have their names all over it has nothing to do with how much confidence HBO has in the site. I guess star power and an empire of a cable network is all it takes to make some of those dead internet presidents.
