CRUMBLES is a webapp that combines one-word clips from various movies/tv/webvideos into a video mishmash that 'says' whatever you type into the input box. Yes, whatever. Obviously, it doesn't have EVERY word in its wordlist (it does have a couple that are totally NSFW), but for anything not there, it mixes a video snippet with a computerized voice. Or you can improvise and get close. BONUS: Instead of the standard word list, you can use an all-Homer Simpson or all-Bee and Puppycat list. Not perfect or ultra-flexible (yet), but what do you expect from a free webapp?

In the spirit of the season

I am a bit disappointed with the small size of the dictionary, though. This one almost worked out, though.

I see that the dictionary has everyone.

Crumbles is currently in beta mode and doesn't work on mobile devices.

Pretty sure the clip of John Cleese for "new" is actually "newt".

The Bee and Puppycat bit is like a gift by the creator of the site personally to me. I wonder, if he's open to suggestions, if he'd be interested in doing Adventure Time? Or, if he compiles the clips and lists automatically with software and has a lot of spare processor power, Mystery Science Theater?

I send love poems to my girlfriend with this.

I was a little sad that after I saw Cyrus in one of the above clips, I didn't get him at all when I typed in "Can you dig it?"

They obviously have plenty more words to load in (a lot of my attempts have resulted in computer-automated speech), but this is still totally awesome.

Still a little buggy (especially if you assemble messages with multiple out-of-dictionary words), but it's also doing some semi-smart search for visuals to use with the out-of-dictionary words. How do I know? "wendell" is from this.

OMG "and" is CATBUG!! And "Hello" is the temp boss from Bee and Puppycat!! And "EVERYONE" is exactly what you would hope it would be.

Typed in "butts" under the general dictionary, got Tina from Bob's Burgers, left satisfied.

I have this terrible feeling that the future is a boot pushing the liquefy button on a blender full of pop culture references forever.

I'm sure I'm not the only one reminded of this.
