Dance, monkeys, dance!

Andrew Sullivan linked to this YouTube video of women in burkas trying to eat spaghetti:

Sully didn't imply that it was hilarious, so I'll let him off the hook. But the jokester who set the scene to music and compared it to Lady and the Tramp, woo, what a sharp comedian he/she must be.

Dr. Rusty Shackleford, who posted this video on his site, warns viewers to step back from their computers if they have liquids in their mouths, because the risk for screen spewage is high. A comedy-loving commenter wants to see them eat ice cream next.

I don't really buy that this video is real. I can't find any information about who originally uploaded it and where he/she is from.

But if it is real, I don't think this video is funny at all. It's profoundly sad.

Hey! I made that mashup! Thanks for the linkage.

I don't know where it originally came from, but after Rusty posted the original, I knew immediately that the soundtrack was all wrong.

Just had to fix it.

Brittney, I make fun of lots of shit. In fact, I did a lot of the photoshop work (including the "Where's the crazy Jesus" pics) for this site that belongs to a friend of mine. I think you'll find I have enough criticism and humor of questionable taste to go 'round.

I saw a woman in full burka at the airport yesterday and felt, in order, alarm, discomfort, guilt, and sadness. I agree that such a saturating cultural/religious practice should only be put to music by accredited idiots and bags of shit with opposable thumbs.

Come then, anonymous, and use your opposable thumbs to click your way to phallicpen's profile so you can rethink using "sir" to address her.

i like entertaining myself, sometimes at other's expense. i don't give a damn about "her" or her profile. i should have noticed her avatar, however, so you got me there.

(not to mention that this is the internet, and "she" might just be a balding fat man sitting around in "his" underwear. in fact, i may not really be "anonymous!")

finally, theo, you little stickler for details, you might have noticed that i said that i didn't need those opposable thumbs to click around. (i generally use the old pointy finger.)

anyway, it's been fun playing here.

Good. Then you won't read this next post, which will simply consist of me telling you to piss off and stick your pointy finger where the sun don't shine.

Wait, I'm not sassing e. e. cummings, am I? So foolish.

just to clarify, that guy isn't me. i don't even know how to make words blue so you can click on them. "it's no fun being covered in black clothes in the desert. unless you're goth and into that, but not if you're a woman who's treated like dog shit." - nofx "there's no fun in fundamentalism"
