Stiller and Meara take to the Internet

Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara have been playing it up for laughs since the 1960s. The husband-and-wife comedy team first found success on "The Ed Sullivan Show." They also happen to be the parents of one Ben Stiller. The Stiller son has had the genius idea of putting his parents in front of a camera and recording their tirades about popular culture. The result are two-minute snippets of hilarity. Some classic quotes:

Stiller on the Internet: "This is like the first time we're on Internet. ... We're going to deal with technology today like Spacebook."

Meara on Facebook: "A lot of people want to share the mundane, miserable moments of their lives with other people."

Meara on Snooki: "She has a big knob on the top of her head like a tumor."

Stiller on Snooki: "Maybe she's sick and she has a tumor!"

Meara on the Situation: "Someone pitch in and buy him a shirt!"

Everybody needs an adorable pair of bickering Jewish parents in their lives. Now thanks to Ben Stiller, we have his.
