Ben Silverman Up for Dream Job As Boss of CollegeHumor

Sure, CollegeHumor.com is okay. But for all its lowbrow fart-filled practical jokery, we've sometimes wondered if the website is truly as stupid and juvenile as it could be. Help could be on the way, though! Ad Age reports that IAC chief Barry Diller is considering folding CH parent-company Connected Ventures into Ben Silverman's new company, Electus, and allowing the ski-jumping, topless-singing, tiger-renting former NBC wunderkind (and perpetual Vulture hero) to take his rightful place in the universe as the site's overseer. Nothing has been finalized yet, but Diller reportedly sees as assets Silverman's connections with advertisers and experience in reality TV (not to mention his natural affinity for frat house–style tomfoolery) and thinks he could help raise revenue. Obviously we completely support this awesome plan. Also: kegger!
