10 Mel Brooks Jokes Modern Audiences Wouldn’t Understand

Without Mel Brooks, comedy simply wouldn’t be the same. His works turned low-brow humor and vulgarity into sophisticated art. From the early years growing up in Brooklyn, Mel always had a knack for making people laugh. He also had a penchant for music, having worked as a drummer in his teens. After serving in the US army disarming landmines during World War II, he took on comedy full time, working in clubs and an occasional radio stint before becoming a writer on Your Show of Shows. Then, he created the slapstick spy comedy series Get Smart.

It wasn’t long after that when he wrote and directed The Producers, a comedy about two men trying to get rich from creating the worst, most offensive Broadway musical ever made. It was a bold, daring, and risky form of comedy, but audiences embraced it and Brooks even won an academy award for Best Original Screenplay. The 1967 masterpiece marked the beginning of a long career that spawned some of the funniest films to grace screens such as Blazing Saddles, History of the World, Part 1, and Spaceballs.

Comedy is a weird beast, though, and not every joke is universal. When one parodies pop culture, understanding gets lost to time. This list will point out ten jokes from Mel Brooks films most modern viewers wouldn’t understand. Some of these jokes are still funny without the context because of how downright absurd they are, and there is still plenty to laugh at in each movie even if some of the references go above people’s heads.

10 A Laurel, And Hardy Handshake – Blazing Saddles

Blazing Saddles is a western about a black man appointed sheriff of a small town. When the town is getting ready to greet their new officer of the law, and before they know how he looks, the chairman of the welcoming committee is preparing his speech and saying “we’d like to offer you a Laurel, And Hearty Handshake.”

This is a direct reference to the legendary comedy duo, Laurel and Hardy. The man rehearsing the speech extends a literal laurel, giving people something to laugh at if they don’t understand the deeper allusion.

9 Frau Blucher – Young Frankenstein

One of the characters in Young Frankenstein is Frau Blucher, played by Cloris Leachman. Every time someone utters her name, horses start wildly neighing.

This is erroneously attributed to her name allegedly sounding like the German word for glue, but it doesn’t bear a resemblance. Instead, it’s a joke about old villains in old melodramas. A sound effect or dramatic cue would play whenever the villain appeared or their name was said.

8 Walter Raleigh Reference – History Of The World Part 1

Walter Raleigh published one book before his execution called The Historie of the World. It was only the first volume in what was meant to have several additions, but he couldn’t keep his head on long enough to write anymore.

The name of Mel Brook’s classic historical epic comedy is taken directly from Walter’s book, save for a small change in spelling. The fact that only one movie exists despite the “Part 1” in the title could also be a gag based on the writer’s circumstances.

7 Frankie Laine Singing The Blazing Saddles Theme

Frankie Laine made a name for himself singing the themes to several famous westerns like 3:10 to Yuma. What good fortune, then, that Mel Brooks managed to get the singer for Blazing Saddles.

Frankie didn’t know it was a parody when recording the song, either, and Brooks didn’t have the heart to tell him.

6 Xenomorph Doing The Michigan Rag – Spaceballs

Alien just celebrated its fortieth anniversary, but all generations are familiar with that horror masterpiece. It’s what the Xenomorph does in Spaceballs after he bursts out of John Hurt’s chest again that leaves people scratching their heads.

The song and dance routing is “The Michigan Rag”, taken from a legendary animated short called One Froggy Evening.

5 Leo Bloom’s Name – The Producers

Leo Bloom is an innocuous name for a protagonist, especially for a comedy.

It’s not immediately outlandish or funny, but bibliophiles will quickly point out the name as a reference to the main character in Jame’s Joyce’s Ulysses.

4 Jews In Space Is A Battlestar Galactica Parody

The fake teaser for Jews In Space is a fantastic gag at the end of History of the World, Part 1. The joke gets better when one realizes the connection to Battlestar Galactica. The science-fiction miniseries takes inspiration from the Mormon faith, and the faux trailer’s direct usage of the Jewish faith parodies this.

3 For My Next Impression, Jesse Owens – Blazing Saddles

After Sheriff Bart and Jim’s KKK disguises are blown after Bart shows his hand to sign some papers,Bart says “and now for my next impression – Jesse Owens.”

For those not up on their sports history, Jesse Owens was an Olympic runner who competed in the 1936 games.

2 Bird Poop – High Anxiety

High Anxiety is a parody of Alfred Hitchcock films. It’s one thing to parody a genre, but it’s a bolder move to parody the style of one particular director. To be fair, Hitchcock could be considered its own genre.

The genius of the film is how funny it still is even without knowledge of the legendary filmmaker. The famous bird poop scene, for example, mirrors a scene from The Birds, but is still grossly hilarious for those who have no idea what The Birds is.

1 Orson Wells Narrating History Of The World, Part 1

Orson Wells was one of the greatest filmmakers of the twentieth century. He also has one heck of an iconic voice. Mel Brooks managed to get him to record the narration for History of the World, Part 1, which would be like getting Johnny Cash to narrate Walk Hard.

The movie’s intro also uses the music from 2001: A Space Odyssey, and mirrors the idea of starting the movie out with the dawn of man.

COD: Modern Warfare Multiplayer Gameplay Reveal Coming On August 1

A multiplayer gameplay reveal for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is coming on August 1, 2019. The silence surrounding Modern Warfare has been very odd considering the game is coming out in just a few months before the end of 2019, and this will be the first time fans will have the chance to see the core multiplayer playlist in action.

Activision and Infinity Ward recently revealed the first gameplay of a new game mode coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare called Gunfight, which is perfectly suited for players on a tight schedule; however, it’s completely separate from the main multiplayer playlist. While it may be different from the regular multiplayer, Gunfight shows the very familiar user interface, as well as the fast and fluid gameplay that fans have come to expect from the series. There were also some cool surprises like quick execution animations shown off for the first time.  Infinity Ward has said in the past that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will increase the player count with 20-player matches.

Related: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Makes “No Russian” Look Like Amateur Hour

Activision announced that the full multiplayer reveal will be coming on August 1 via Twitch, and Gunfight was just a small piece of the bigger picture. Players can likely expect the staple Call of Duty game modes to make a return, like Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Search and Destroy. As of right now, though, no other new modes have been revealed outside of Gunfight. The gameplay itself looked very promising, and it’ll be exciting to see it for the first time in large-scale battles.

Infinity Ward is making big changes to the multiplayer offerings in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with full cross-play support and the absence of a traditional season pass. The changes will ensure that every player is able to have access to the latest content and multiplayer updates without being restricted by any sort of paywall. Everyone will also be able to play together across PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and there’s a new cross-progression system being included in the game, tying together each mode more closely. Hopefully, players will hear more about how that works when the full multiplayer reveal comes on August 1.

So far, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare looks to be making more meaningful and thoughtful changes to the series as a whole. It’s a breath of fresh air considering the newest change to the annual first-person shooter came in the form of a shoehorned battle royal mode in last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. This looks to be a more connected Call of Duty title, and it’ll be interesting to see how the game tackles cross-progression, as well as if these changes carry over into the inevitable entries that will follow.

5 Best Couples On Modern Family (& 5 Of The Worst)

Modern Family is known for its hilarious portrayal of modern relationships. We get to take a look into the lifestyle of a gigantic family filled with big personalities, from the charmingly extroverted Gloria to the goofy-but-loveable Phil.

RELATED: Myers-Briggs® Personality Types Of Modern Family Characters

Being a show that is all about relationships, it is no surprise that there has been a handful of romantic connections throughout all ten seasons of the series.  Some of the couples on the show are absolutely goal-worthy while others never really made any sense to us. What are some of the best romantic couples on the show? What are some of the worst? Let’s take a look at the list below and find out.

10 JAY AND GLORIA (BEST)

At first glance, viewers have rolled their eyes at Jay and Gloria as a married couple. Assumptions flooded the minds of not only Modern Family fans but from characters on the show as well. Those assumptions all involved the idea of Gloria as a gold digger and Jay using Gloria as his gorgeous trophy wife.

It makes sense. Gloria is absolutely gorgeous and much younger than Jay, while he is stinking rich. Claire even says she thinks Gloria is using Jay for his money at the beginning of their relationship, yet as the show went on we realized how in love Jay and Gloria truly are. The two prove that everything is not what it seems and you should never judge a relationship based on what you can only see from the outside.

9 PHIL AND CLAIRE (BEST)

Phil and Claire are another example of a couple on Modern Family who have more to them than meets the eye. At first, the two seem like your classic sitcom couple- A frigid wife who constantly rolls her eyes at her goofy husband. The husband always seems to be the same naive guy who just can’t seem to grow up regardless of his age.

As the show progresses and we get to know the two more, the further we are able to appreciate the unique bond between them. The two are a perfect example of the notion that opposites attract. Phil appreciates how Claire takes care of him and grounds him, while Claire cherishes Phil’s ability to bring fun and excitement into their life. Both balance each other out in the best way.

8 CAM AND MITCHELL (BEST)

Let’s face it – In the real world, Cam and Mitchell would be labeled as a toxic couple. The two try their best daily to one-up each other and they are constantly arguing over the most trivial things. Yet luckily, this isn’t the real world. This is a sitcom. In sitcoms, comedy is derived out of conflict, and boy do they have a ton of it.

Cam and Mitchell’s storylines are usually the funniest on the entire show, and that’s saying something considering how hilarious MF is. They both share a love for competition and regardless of all their bickering, Cam and Mitchell can’t seem to live without each other. Cam and Mitchell along with their daughter Lily are naturally set up to deliver comedy gold, and they never fail to leave us entertained.

7 HALEY AND ANDY (BEST)

Haley and Andy win the award as the ultimate one true pairing on Modern Family, by a landslide. Their chemistry is inevitable from the moment they first meet and it sticks throughout their entire relationship and then some. At first, Haley seems to be in denial about her feelings for Andy. For superficial reasons, she originally sees their relationship as one that could only ever exist in his wildest dreams.

RELATED: The 10 Best Guest Stars On Modern Family

It isn’t until he is engaged to another woman that she realizes how madly in love with him she is. Devastated to find out that he is engaged to someone else, she assumes there is no hope until Andy tells confesses to Haley that there’s no one else he loves but her. Fans were crushed when the couple didn’t end up together, and rightfully so. They truly had something beautiful going on, which leads us to our next couple…

6 HALEY AND DYLAN (WORST)

Haley and Dylan aren’t a terrible couple as a whole, but the fact that Haley chose Dylan over Andy is what makes them one of the worst couples on this list. Although they seem to love and accept each other, they’re both too naive and childish to go through the daily motions of life together. At least when it comes to Dan and Claire, one of them is put-together enough to balance out the other’s immaturity. With Dylan and Haley, two lovable idiots don’t make a right.

Many fans complained about how Haley’s choice to be with Dylan in the end completely ruined her character development and caused her to regress back to the character she was in season one.

5 PHIL AND GLORIA (WORST)

Although Phil and Gloria were never a couple, they have always had a very strange and mildly creepy relationship. Phil has constantly been caught lusting after Gloria even in the presence of his wife, Claire. At one point, Phil lies to his old college rival named Glenn about Gloria being his wife just to impress him and make him feel jealous.

RELATED: What To Expect From Modern Family In 2019

Glenn says he always thought Phil would end up with Claire, who he always thought was insanely beautiful. Glenn mentions how he was extremely jealous of Phil back in college for being with Claire, and it isn’t until then that Phil realizes how much he’s lucked out with Claire. Took you long enough, huh Phil?

4 ALEX AND SANJAY (WORST)

Alex and Sanjay dated for a short period of time on Modern Family. The two were originally rivals in their senior year of high school, both constantly trying to one-up each other over their school achievements. Yet as is frequently the case on sitcoms, the heat between the two wasn’t just the result of mutual loathing.

Sanjay eventually came to the conclusion that he was attracted to Alex, and he told her this to her excitement. The two ended up dating until he eventually broke up with her because of the long distance between them while in college. It was probably for the best considering their relationship would most likely be extremely competitive.

3 HALEY AND ARVIN (BEST)

Haley’s relationship with Arvin was perhaps the most beneficial relationship Haley could ever expect to have. Arvin is well established and extremely intelligent. He is the kind of man who Haley could really learn from and vice versa. While Arvin can teach her wisdom, Haley can help Arvin learn to have some excitement in his life.

Perhaps if Haley and Arvin stayed together we would see a more put-together version of the oldest Dunphy child. Unfortunately, love turns us into fools resulting in Haley going for Dylan instead.

2 ALEX AND BEN (WORST)

Poor Benny Boy. He still lives with his mother as a grown man and is forced to live every day of his life knowing that he has a Tasmanian devil tattooed to his butt. Yet for some reason, Alex can’t help but find herself drawn to his childish ways.

Although she may get a thrill out of being the intellectual superior in the relationship, we seriously (seriously) think she can do better. But hey, we all have our own tastes and as this show has proven, opposites really do attract.

1 MANNY AND SHERRY (WORST)

Sherry plays Manny’s Canadian girlfriend on Modern Family. Their relationship has no spark to it, proving that the two aren’t exactly Romeo and Juliet. Although they are nothing like the Shakespeare pairing, the one thing you could say they have in common with R & J is that Manny’s parents cannot stand Sherry.

Gloria and Jay believe Sherry overstays her welcome and when she stays with them, she attempts to entertain the family with her god-awful improv performances. Nothing more cringe-worthy than watching her act out as a T-Rex playing volleyball…

The 10 Best Guest Stars On Modern Family

With Modern Family soon to be entering its twelfth and final season, it’s hard not to get nostalgic about everything the beloved, award-winning sitcom has accomplished in its over 250 episodes. We’ve watched the eccentric Pritchett-Dunphy-Delgado-Tucker family grow and mature over time, from the new addition of Fulgencio Joe Delgado-Pritchett to multiple high school graduations and college acceptances to the reveal that Haley was pregnant via her high school sweetheart Dylan.

RELATED: Modern Family Renewed For Season 11 At ABC, Will Be Final Season

Relationships have come and gone, characters have passed away, and guest stars – ranging from current A-listers to previously unknown talent – have contributed in large part to what has made the series so great. While the series has stumbled in recent years, with some characters and plots almost unbearable to watch anymore, the caliber of guest talent that Modern Family continue to pull in is nothing short of impressive.

Sometimes, the main family members can be a little too much. That’s where the endless list of guest stars come in to shake things up, and make the series all the better as a result.

10 Winston Duke (Dwight)

Before he was stealing scenes as M’Baku in Black Panther, or leading a family against doppelgangers in Us, Winston Duke appeared in a few episodes of Modern Family‘s eighth season as Dwight. The star football player on the team that Cameron coached, Dwight stayed with Mitchell and Cameron for a while after his home life became unstable and would have required him moving before the end of the football season.

In addition, Dwight also briefly dated younger Dunphy daughter, Alex. He was an adorable addition to the series, gelling well with both storylines he took part in. But after only a few episodes, Dwight disappeared without another word – and Winston Duke would go on to become the rising star in Hollywood that he is now.

9 Chris Geere (Professor Arvin Fennerman)

Chris Geere is perhaps best known for his role of Jimmy in the cult hit cable comedy You’re The Worst. But for seven episodes across seasons nine and ten, Geere recurred on Modern Family as Dr. Arvin Fennerman. An esteemed professor of astrophysics at Caltech, Arvin is adorably geeky and awkward, and amazingly humble despite his impressive achievements. Alex Dunphy also has a clear crush on her instructor, and Dr. Fennerman does wind up becoming romantically involved with one of the Dunphy sisters…

…but not Alex. He dates dim-witted Haley on and off throughout the tenth season, and seems really invested in their relationship, despite the intelligence deficit between the two of them. Eventually, Haley chooses to once again date her former high school love, Dylan, and after she and Arvin break up, he’s never seen again.

8 Stephanie Beatriz (Sonia Delgado)

Before she was winning hearts with her badass performance as Detective Rosa Diaz on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Stephanie Beatriz briefly appeared on Modern Family as Gloria Delgado Pritchett’s younger sister, Sonia. Visiting from Colombia, Sonia was initially quiet, mousy, and withdrawn, totally the opposite of her vibrant older sister. But all of that changed when it was revealed that Sonia was the woman Jay Pritchett was initially interested in.

RELATED: Matt LeBlanc Explains Turning Down Modern Family Role

Learning that her sister got the life that should have been hers, Sonia turns vindictive and vengeful, attempting to kill her sister and seduce her brother in law. Every performance that Beatriz turns in is over the top and hilarious, showing off her impressive comic range along the way.

7 Jon Polito (Earl Chambers)

For most of the series, Jay Pritchett and daughter Claire Dunphy have helped a closet sales business, Pritchett Closets. Apparently, the closet industry is a pretty cutthroat one, as Pritchett Closets has always been at war with fellow sales company Closets, Closets, Closests, Closets. And for Jay, this rivalry was truly personal, as Closets, Closets, Closets, Closets was run by his traitorous former partner, Earl Chambers, played by the character actor legend Jon Polito.

Prior to Polito’s tragic passing in 2016, Earl was a force to be reckoned with in the series, though his appearances were few and far between. He and Jay often went head to head and toe to toe, with even Jay’s children getting sucked into the middle of their fights on more than one occasion. After Polito’s death, Earl Chambers was briefly recast with another actor, but it just wasn’t the same.

6 Kevin Hart (Andre)

Long before Kevin Hart was one of the world’s most famous comedians, and even longer before the Oscars controversy involving him, he had a brief guest-starring role in the third season of Modern Family as Andre, the Dunphy family’s neighbor and Phil’s new friend. Phil and Andre bonded over their likewise quirky senses of humor, with one particular scene finding them trying to make a song out of the phrase “brother from another mother” in order to describe the sudden closeness of their friendship.

Andre wasn’t around very much, only appearing in the episodes “Treehouse” and “Planes, Trains, and Cars,” but his friendship with Phil led to some truly hilarious adventures, such as when he managed to convince the impulsive Phil to buy a much fancier car than he needed.

5 Kevin Daniels (Longinus)

In the early seasons of the series, Cam and Mitch’s circle of close gay friends provided some of the show’s most hilarious and instantly iconic moments. One of the best of these beloved characters was Kevin Daniels’ Longinus, a larger than life character who would have been promoted to sitcom icon status based on his name alone. Longinus worked as a cologne salesman in the early season, resulting in various hilarious mall mishaps, including when he and Phil got into a spraying war, spraying each other with cologne directly in the face.

Longinus hasn’t been used much in the later seasons of the series, which is a real shame, considering his contributions of dry witty remarks and larger than life physical humor made the early seasons really special. He has appeared occasionally at events that Cam and Mitch have thrown, including their wedding, but nothing has compared to the early years.

4 Shelley Long (DeDe Pritchett)

With a sitcom icon like Married… with Children‘s Ed O’Neill assuming the role of family patriarch Jay Pritchett, Modern Family really needed to deliver someone of the same caliber when they chose the actress to play the Pritchett matriarch – and boy, did they deliver. Over the course of the series’ first ten seasons, sitcom legend Shelley Long, best known as Cheers‘ Diane, recurred as the bohemian, loudly opinionated DeDe Pritchett.

RELATED: Every TV Show Ending In 2019

Although she only appeared in eight episodes of Modern Family, Long’s DeDe was always guaranteed to inject some drama and hilarity into each and every episode she took part in. Whether physically fighting with Gloria, engaging in a screaming match with ex-husband Jay, or sarcastically commenting on the lives of her children, DeDe was unarguably one of the series’ secret weapons.

3 Fred Willard (Frank Dunphy)

The Pritchett children aren’t the only ones who have comedy icons for parents, however. Phil Dunphy’s lovably loony and optimistic father, Frank Dunphy, is played by comedy legend Fred Willard, known for his appearances in works such as This Is Spinal Tap and Everybody Loves Raymond. Phil is often thought of as a total nerd, with pie in the sky dreams – and as soon as you see his father, it’s not hard to see how the apple didn’t fall very far from the tree at all.

Most of Frank’s appearances in the series consist of him showing up unexpectedly, which forces the Dunphy clan to figure out how to deal with him and his frankness – both literal and metaphorical. Later in the series, he remarries, and it just so happens to be to a woman that was once Phil’s babysitter – and Phil’s first crush. Occasionally, Frank also Skypes in for family events, via a rolling tablet.

2 Reid Ewing (Dylan Marshall)

From the moment that Dylan Stardust Marshall appeared in the Modern Family pilot, it was clear that the series had found something truly special in his adorable portrayer, Reid Ewing. Over the years, Dylan has remained just as adorably dimwitted as ever, proving time and again that he’s the only man to have ever really understood Haley. While they were once ditzy high school sweethearts, who got into trouble more than they ever got out of it, Dylan and Haley have both grown up over time.

And now, in the series’ eleventh season, they’re married, with twin babies on the way. And all the while, Ewing’s performance has been one of the few constantly hilarious parts of the series. He never misses a comedic beat, whether in line delivery or in the sheer amount of physical humor the series requires his lanky self to endure. Dylan is one of Modern Family‘s best, and most unique, creations – but none of it would have been possible without Reid Ewing.

1 Nathan Lane (Pepper Saltzman)

It’s truly impossible to think of any other guest star topping this list. You almost don’t need to know anything about Pepper Saltzman. Once Nathan Lane is guest starring in a comedy series, it’s clear that no other guest actor could ever top his performance. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Pepper is far and away the most hilarious character in the entire series. Larger than life, despite his diminutive stature, Sherman “Pepper” Saltzman is one of Cameron and Mitchell’s oldest – and gayest – friends, a wedding planner with a flair for all aspects of life.

Given his line of work, he’s far more dramatic than any of the other characters in the series – even the overly wrought Cameron. But not once are his dramatics tiring, or eyeroll inducing. If anything, his histrionics are infectious, leading viewers to give into fits of hysterical laughter as he moves from one zany moment to the next. His relationships with his husband Ronaldo, as well as Jay and Phil, have especially been highlights of Lane’s tenure on the series.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Leaked Online

A remastered version of 2009’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sans multiplayer could be on the way if a recent ratings listing is to be believed. The news lines up with a March 2018 rumor that such a game was in the works. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time something like this has occurred. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare received a similar facelift in 2016 (albeit with its multiplayer intact) when Activision included it with special editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Modern Warfare 2 serves as the follow-up to the now-iconic Call of Duty 4. The campaign continues the previous game’s story of Roach and Task Force 141, who must combat a Russian invasion. It received widespread acclaim for its story and multiplayer, and is generally considered among the best shooters of the era. The game also garnered a fair amount of controversy for its infamous “No Russian” mission. In it, the player, in the role of a CIA spy infiltrating the enemy force, must engage in an airport shooting massacring dozens of unarmed civilians.

Evidence of the remaster comes from a PEGI 18 board rating for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered. Destructoid, who first reported the news, snagged a screencap of said listing. Don’t bother searching for the alleged game on the site now as doing so yields no results. That means someone somewhere had the listing taken down. If the game exists, it makes for an intriguing shift from the multiplayer-only Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (now with loot boxes) to a campaign-only entry, remaster or not.

Now, 2019’s Call of Duty title is slated to come from Infinity Ward. Whatever it is, it’s been rumored to be quite an ambitious project. It seems very plausible that Activision would repeat the same tactic it employed with Infinite Warfare three years ago. Hopefully players won’t have to wait months to purchase Modern Warfare 2 standalone. Regardless, losing out on improved versions of the game’s famed Spec Ops mode and the rest of its multiplayer could be a deal-breaker for some fans.

The only question bigger than the game’s potential lack of multiplayer is whether or not the remaster will still feature No Russian in its original state. The infamous segment was highly questionable a decade ago. Resurrecting it today, when shootings have, unfortunately, occurred far more frequently, could open a can of worms even messier than back then. With E3 just three months away, it shouldn’t be long before we get confirmation on this title one way or the other.

Call of Duty 2019: Modern Warfare 4 or Ghosts 2?

Call of Duty Modern Warfare artwork

Activision and Infinity Ward are keeping gamers guessing whether 2019’s Call of Duty game will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 or Call of Duty: Ghosts 2. After the chart domination of 2018’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Activision is already looking at what comes next.

The long-running shooter franchise and its spinoffs proved they still have a place as 2018’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 shunned its critics and Treyarch went down a wholly multiplayer route. Whether Infinity Ward decides to follow suit or returns to the tried-and-tested Call of Duty single player campaign remains to be seen, but either way, an announcement could be coming soon.

Infinity Ward Communications Manager Ashton Williams posted on Twitter, sharing a cryptic nod at the studio’s next Call of Duty game. The use of a creepy skull and static effect has fans and experts split into two camps over what Williams means. It didn’t take long for some to point out the skull could relate to Modern Warfare‘s Lieutenant Simon “Ghost” Riley and the skull-clad wraparound he is synonymous for wearing.

Others pointed out that 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts used a skull motif in its original marketing campaign. Considering it’s been over five years since Ghosts came to PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U, gamers have been waiting for any news relating to a possible sequel. Similar to how Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 moved away from what everyone expected from the subseries, a Ghosts sequel could reinvent itself for a new generation.

Only a select few know whether Infinity Ward’s upcoming title will be Modern Warfare 4 or Ghosts 2, but one industry expert is shunning the idea of Ghosts 2. Posting on ResetEra, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier warned that Infinity Ward definitely isn’t working on Call of Duty: Ghosts 2. Although Schreier doesn’t go into detail why, he’s known for breaking industry news and usually being right about these things.

This wouldn’t be the first whisper of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4. Last year, it was reported that Infinity Ward would make its long-awaited return to the dystopian world of Modern Warfare. If the studio is queuing up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, players should expect another best-selling release. Even without 2018’s resurgence in Call of Duty fandom, Modern Warfare 3 premiered in 2011 and sold 6.5 million copies in the United States and United Kingdom in just 24 hours. At the time, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 went on to have the biggest entertainment launch of all time.

Call of Duty games are usually teased in March with an announcement in May, but Activision and Infinity Ward look to be moving a little quicker in 2019. Expect to see more of Williams’ breadcrumb trail as both Infinity Ward and Activision continue to tease their next Call of Duty title.

Modern Family Season 11 Renewal Likely; Cast Finalizing New Contracts

Despite season 10 originally being announced as the end, Modern Family is approaching a season 11 renewal, with the cast finalizing new contracts. While lots of long-running sitcoms take time to find their footing in the crowded TV landscape, Modern Family wasn’t one of them, premiering on ABC in 2009 with lots of critical buzz suggesting it would be a hit. Those predictions turned out to be correct, with the single-camera comedy quickly carving out its place as one of the most popular programs airing on a big four broadcast network.

While Modern Family’s viewership is far from what it once was – which says more about the general downward trend in live TV viewing than it does about this particular show – it’s still ABC’s third-highest rated series of the 2018 fall season, with only long-running drama Grey’s Anatomy and Roseanne spinoff The Conners outperforming it in that regard. Considering that fact, it’s not hard to see why ABC isn’t in any hurry to remove Modern Family from its programming line-up.

In early 2018, Modern Family co-creators Christopher Lloyd (no, not *that* one) and Steven Levitan made it known in interviews that season 10 would likely be the series’ final outing. However, some observers began to doubt that season 10 would be the end by the time the new fall season rolled around, as ABC wasn’t promoting season 10 as the final one, and it would be an incredibly odd decision not to heavily market the final season of a long-running show. Sure enough, in October, reports surfaced that a season 11 renewal might be coming, and now Deadline reports that said renewal just got much more likely, as the six main adult cast members (Ed O’Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara) are currently finalizing new contracts.

Once the aforementioned group of six all sign on the dotted line, it’ll be time to finish working out new contracts with Modern Family’s original “kid” cast, who are all of course now young adults due to the length of the series’ run. The talks with Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez are said to be in the early stages, but Deadline’s report makes it clear that all are expected to come to terms on new deals. Creators Lloyd and Levitan – and key members of Modern Family’s writing staff – are also currently in talks to return, and are seen as likely to do so. After all, why would Lloyd and Levitan bail out this close to the finish line?

Interestingly, if Modern Family returns for season 11 – and that certainly seems to be more likely than not – it’ll be the first time the show hasn’t had to compete with CBS’ The Big Bang Theory for the title of most popular comedy on network TV. Big Bang Theory will end following its currently airing season 12, after spending most of its run on the top of the comedy ratings chart, with Modern Family often taking the #2 spot on that list. Of course, with Big Bang spinoff Young Sheldon likely to continue – and the possible continuation of The ConnersModern Family may still not be able to go out on top.

20 Things That Make No Sense About Modern Family

Modern Family‘s focus on the different types of families that exist within the Pritchett and Dunphy clans has received wide-spread acclaim. Its ten-season run has been very well received by the public due to the show’s honest approach to family life. The variety of characters makes the show fresh and fun, and has allowed Modern Family to remain relevant despite its long run.

Whether fans are enjoying the interactions between Jay and Gloria, Phil and Claire, or Mitch and Cam, Modern Family has something for everyone. The show’s focus on family, love, and everything in between has made for some hilarious experiences. Sometimes the age gap between Jay and Gloria serves up some great moments, as does Phil’s silliness combined with Cameron’s exuberance. The endless combinations of hilarity makes the show seem like it can continue on forever. Despite the reports that season ten would be the last, there have been new reports that an eleventh final season will be ordered.

If an eleventh season is on the books, then there are several things that the showrunners need to consider. While the show is highly rated, there are certainly aspects of it that do not make sense. The longer a show runs the more opportunity there is for error. Thankfully, Modern Family is one of the better long-running sitcoms, but it is not without its errors. Perhaps there is only one thing that needs to be asked in this situation – What Would Phil Dunphy Do?

Here are 20 Things That Make No Sense About Modern Family.

20 They Never Address “The Film Crew”

Since the first episode of Modern Family, the entire Pritchett and Dunphy clan have been shown sitting in their living rooms discussing their lives with an unseen person. It is almost as if they are being interviewed by someone analyzing their lives. The showrunners have even stated that they initially proposed that they family was being interviewed by a foreign film crew. Considering other shows like The Office have seen great success with this, it is a good formula for a show.

The only strange thing is that the family never addresses the film crew directly, even during very intimate moments. The crew often gets side-eyed looks from the family during funny situations, but the crew has never been seen. In fact, other than this they do not interact with the family members in any way.

19 Disappearing Lily

Cam and Mitch are adoring parents to their adopted child, Lily. Their devotion to helping her adjust to life in their family is very touching. However, there is one simple question that continues to pop up – where does Lily go all the time?

As a teenager gets older, it is normal for them to not hang out with their parents as often. However, Lily is often invisible for several episodes at a time without explanation. While she certainly has her own social life now that she is in high school, but her parents do not even address her whereabouts. She may still be present for most family functions, but do Cam and Mitch even know where she is most of the time?

18 Gloria’s Past

Before Gloria married Jay, she was living in Columbia and was married to Javier. During their marriage she gave birth to Manny before they got divorced and moved to America where she let Jay. This is what fans know for sure about her life before becoming a Pritchett. The rest is a jumble of crazy stories, potential felonies, and plenty of violence.

When Gloria mentions a story about her time in Columbia, it is usually followed by a crazy anecdote. Whether it is about how her family used to do something crazy to get by or even a crime that she committed, Gloria is upfront out about her past. However, it is difficult to know if she is embellishing or not. Considering that she even mentions taking lives at some points, fans are right to treat her stories with skepticism.

17 Mitchell Had To Come Out Repeatedly To Jay

Saying that Jay Pritchett has difficultly expressing his emotions would be a big understatement. In fact, he regularly struggles with expressing the simplest of emotions. So, when his only son dropped the bombshell about his orientation on him as a teenager, he certainly had difficulty with it. However, it may have been even harder for Mitchell.

Due to his father’s inability to process emotions, he had to come out to Jay multiple times. While it is possible that due to Jay’s own prejudice that he was actively trying to ignore it, it does seem strange that he would forget. Considering that Jay was a very successful businessman, he should have much better memory, even if he does not like the news.

16 Claire Never Fixed The Step Herself

Phil Dunphy’s carefree attitude makes him easily distracted, which means that he often forgets about things that he has been asked to do. The most obvious example of this is the infamous step in the Dunphy house that makes everyone trip. Phil has famously stated many times that he “needs to fix that step” but took a very long time. On the other hand, Claire Dunphy is a very take-charge type of woman who does not have any issues solving problems herself.

Since Claire is not the type to wait for others to take care of things for her, why would she not fix the step on her own? Phil certainly has some great qualities, but this must be one that frustrates Claire to no end. It is surprising that she has not taken matters into her own hands.

15 No One Calls Joe By His Real Name

Little Joe Pritchett has been a great addition to Modern Family. Watching Jay and Gloria manage through raising a child together has led to some hilarious moments, in no small part due to the young child actor himself. The entire Pritchett family has awesome interactions with Joe.

While Joe is responsible for many entertaining situations, there is one aspect about him that does not make sense. Apart from his first season on the show, no member of the family calls him by his real name. Joe is his middle name, while his given name is Fulfencio. Jay originally started calling him by Joe because he figured that no one would use his real name. Apparently, he was correct!

14 Andy Lost His Weight Very Quickly

Following the will-they-won’t-they saga of Haley and Andy, most fans were disappointed that they didn’t end up together. Since neither of them were able to profess their feelings for the other, they wound up moving on with other people.

However, due to the usual meddling from her family, Andy learns about Haley’s feelings. He even discovers that Haley was going to try and stop his engagement to Beth. After learning that he had missed his opportunity, he begins to eat his feelings and gains a fair amount of weight. While stress-eating like this is not uncommon, it is unusual that Andy was able to lose all this weight so quickly. Being a nanny is certainly an active job, but losing plenty of extra pounds in a manner of a few weeks seems very farfetched.

13 Gloria’s Brothers

As mentioned before, Gloria’s past remains a mystery apart from the strange stories she tells. Some clarity was provided when both her mother and sister came to visit from Columbia, as fans were able to see her interact with family. However, there seem to be some members of the Ramirez family that fans have never seen before.

Gloria has mentioned two brothers from Columbia before, but they have never made an appearance on the show. While she has alluded to the fact that her mother had to “deal with them” before, which may explain why they are seldom mentioned. Gloria has remained mysterious about her past to the point that no one knows if she is telling the truth or not. Given how infrequently she brings up her brothers, it begs the question of whether they exist or not.

12 Cam Backs Down From Confrontation

Between Cam and Mitchell, Cameron is usually the more assertive party. Behind closed doors, he is always telling Mitchell that he needs to stand up for himself and go after what he wants. However, Cameron doesn’t alwas practice what he preaches.

Cameron may be a very confident person, but he tends to back down when confronted head-on. He would also prefer to confront any aggressor in a passive-aggressive manner instead of directly. Considering how much he encourages Mitchell to deal with things face-to-face it is surprising to see him back down so often from bullies like Andrew or Señor Kaplan. He may tout about his former football glory, but he is not always willing to attack his problems.

11 No One Notices Phil’s Crush On Gloria

Phil is usually very quick to let everyone know that “he has Gloria!” in a time of crisis, but no one from the family has addressed this odd situation. It is not uncommon for Gloria to turn a few heads from onlookers. However, she has permanently distracted Phil just by being around her. It is odd that all the Pritchett and Dunphys have seen him drool over his step-mother, but never said anything about it.

While Claire has quietly discouraged him from saying something too outlandish, it seems odd that no one has discussed it with him. His crush seems to have tapered off over the seasons, but it went unaddressed for several years.

10 Mitch & Cam Would Have Had Trouble Adopting Lily

Modern Family has received many accolades for how it portrays the different types of family that exist in the world. By showcasing nuclear, blended, and same-gender parent families, it has opened things up on TV. While the showrunners should be commended for their actions, there is an unfortunate error that they made early in the show.

When the show first aired in 2009, it began with Mitchell and Cam coming home from Vietnam with their adoptive daughter, Lily. While their portrayal of adoptive parents has been excellent, there is one slight problem – Vietnam banned same-gender marriages up until 2015. Given their partnership, it would be very unlikely that Vietnam would has allowed a gay couple to adopt a child. There is no doubt that Mitchell and Cam are good parents, but the government regulations would have forbidden this from happening.

9 Gloria Should Have Lost Her License

Jay is extremely hard on Gloria at times and puts a lot of pressure on her to live up to his expectations. However, if there is one thing he is spot-on about, it is Gloria’s driving abilities.

Two different episodes of Modern Family have focused on Gloria’s driving abilities – “Moon Landing” and “Hit and Run” – and they both involve her getting in car accidents. Glroia’s aggression behind the wheel (and outside of the car) are a cause for concern. Her short fuse creates the tendency for her to lash out at other drivers and make poor decisions while driving. She has also tried to hide car issues from Jay before so that he won’t come down on her. How has nothing come of this?

8 Manny’s Crush On Haley

Just like Phil’s attraction to Gloria, there is another strange one-sided romance within the family. Manny’s constant flirtation and compliments about Haley in the early seasons of the show were very inappropriate. Due to their family situation, it is often forgotten that Manny is actually Haley’s uncle, despite their relatively close ages.

Since Manny was younger while making these comments, it can almost be excused as underage ignorance. However, when they continued into young adulthood, it became very strange that no one in the family was addressing them. Haley was clearly uncomfortable with the attention that Manny was giving her, but never got any of the adults involved. Imagine how Jay would have dealt with this situation? Manny never would have had the guts to even look at Haley again.

7 Phil Does Not Have A Teaching Degree

Season 10 of Modern Family has given Phil the opportunity for a new career. While has always been happy as a realtor, the chance to teach a real estate course at Luke’s communitycollege was something he could not turn down. Given his natural charm and charisma, he has been very successful as a teacher so far. However, there is one thing about the situation that does not make sense – Phil does not have a teaching degree.

While community college is often portrayed as being on the low end of the education spectrum, teachers there still require accreditation to educate students. Despite his experience in the field, Phil is lacking this very important component. It seems very strange that the college would allow him to teach considering there.

6 Cam and Mitchell’s Friendship With Pepper

Mitch and Cam have an eclectic group of friends with very strong personalities. At times, their friends come off as snobby and rude, but none of which come off as poorly as Pepper. He operates without a filter and has no problem with speaking his mind, even if it will insult someone else. Also, a little-known fact is that Cam used to date Pepper before he met Mitch. With all these things under consideration, one big question remains – why would they be friends with him at all?

Considering Mitch and Cam’s good nature, this friendship strikes a lot of fans as strange. Pepper isn’t kind or considerate, yet they continue to subject themselves to his “famous” themed parties. Perhaps they will cut him out at some point, but it would be upsetting to lose Nathan Lane’s hilarious performance.

5 Claire’s Naivete about Haley

Haley Dunphy has never been a perfect angel. In fact, there have been many situations over the past ten years where she has been caught breaking Phil and Claire’s rules. From her relationship with Dylan to her hard partying while she was in high school, her past makes it very hard to believe that her parents would believe she would only be having her first drink on her 21st birthday.

The season six episode that features Haley’s 21st Birthday, Claire takes Haley out so she can have her “first drink” with her at a bar. Meanwhile, Claire had already dealt with a severely hungover Haley in season four following her escapades at prom. Perhaps Claire was practicing a selective memory so that she can still consider her daughter innocent, but it does not make any sense.

4 Joe Is A Thief

Despite being the youngest (and most adorable) member of the Modern Family cast, Joe Pritchett is certainly not the most innocent. In his short years of life, he has managed to break his own fair share of laws. While some of his indiscretions have landed him in hot water with his family – such as harming a chicken – others have not been dealt with.

While the family is visiting Mexico in season eight in “A Tale of Three Cities”, Joe reveals that he has been stealing from the hotel. Considering that most people remove the travel-size shampoos from hotels, this is understandable. However, Joe says that he also “took some bigger things” because he “likes stealing. It makes [his] heart go fast.” If Jay and Gloria do not address this quickly, they may notice some of their own things missing.

3 Claire’s Disease Is Not Shown Often

Claire Dunphy is not well-known for taking things easy. Her high-strung personality combined with her full schedule as a mother, wife, and running Pritchett’s Closets and Blinds makes for high levels of stress. Claire is a perfectionist and tends to boss her family around in order to get things done around the house. That is why her Wolff–Parkinson–White diagnosis was so surprising. However, the show has not addressed Claire’s illness very often and rarely brings it up, almost to the point that it seems forgotten about.

A Wolff–Parkinson–White diagnosis directly effects the heart and could potentially lead to cardiac arrest. The abnormality of the heart’s rhythm is not something that should be taken lightly. While Claire would not let it keep her down, the showrunners have not made it a part of the show either.

2 Mitch’s Fear Of Birds

Poor Mitchell Pritchett – while he is generally high-strung, he is able to manage himself, unless it comes to birds. Mitch suffers from ornithophobia, which is the fear of birds. Whether one has flown into his home or the princess castle he made for Lily, they always frighten him.

That is why it was so strange when Mitchell developed a deep connection to a chicken. In the season ten episode “Did The Chicken Cross The Road”, Cam has forced Mitchell to live with a chicken in the backyard. While he would normally be terrified, he is shown hand-feeding the chicken and caring or it. Did he forget about his own fear? Or did the showrunners?

1 Cam Never Goes To Visit Missouri

Cam’s intense pride in his country roots is often brought up on the show. He is incredibly proud of growing up on a farm and taking care of livestock, as well as the misadventures he had gotten into. Cam’s family (including the livestock he considers brothers and sisters) still live in Missouri but travel to visit him from time to time. The only real question is – if Missouri is so important to Cam, why has he never gone back to visit before?

Cam’s life in California is plentiful with family, friends, and a coaching job. He spends his time raising Lily and working, so he is very busy, but to think he has never found the time to make his way there does not make much sense.

Are there any other crazy things about Modern Family that do not make sense? Let us know in the comments!
