Rightwing Teabaggers

Okay, this is really, really funny.

Here’s some highlights:

…teabagging day for the right wind and they are going nuts for it. thousands of them whipped out the festivities early this past weekend and while the parties are officially toothless, the teabaggers are full-throated about their goals. They want to give president obama a strong tongue-lashing and lick government spending, funding they didn’t oppose under bush and reagan.

Upon The Gears

So, last night I was watching Battlestar Galatica, which is admittedly a rather engrossing show. And anyhow, not to ruin it too much, one of the characters becomes a union leader on a desperate space colony, and he says this speech, almost word for word. The original speech, by Mario Savio was given in Berkley in 1964 as part of a student action to get political activity un-banned on campus. Anyhow, I’ve always liked this speech quite a bit, although I think the fervor and quality of the words are more interesting than Mario or his campaign. I sampled this heavily in the song Upon The Gears by Attack Attack Attack. So I started giggling and had to call my friend. I wonder how many people who saw that episode got the reference?

Embedding is disabled, but here’s a youtube clip of both speeches.

Video of a Chinese Cop Blocked by a Truck

I know, I know, not the most promising title to a blogpost, but man, this is funny. It’s 7 minutes of a cop trying to pass a truck. The truck driver cuts him off, every time. When I watched it, I accidentally put on Loreena McKennit at the same time, for a particularly hyponotizing experience. Definitely worth it. And no, nothing really changes during the video, it’s safe to only watch half of. But it really is funny.
