All The News That's Fit To Hype

A new post by Alex just brought me to this video on JibJab. This is quite possibly the funniest way on the planet to support my posting about Americans being interested in everything EXCEPT the Iraq War due to media hype.

Watch it. It's pretty damn brilliant.

And JibJab looks wild and amazing. I have a feeling that my Monday night Sidetrack run for my weekly dose of showtunes will most likely have to cancelled due to me spending hour after hour cruising around this site and laughing my ass off.

And I have a lot of ass to laugh off, folks. It runs in the family.

Those boys over at JibJab are simply brilliant! I love the one they do where Bush writes on the Bill Of Rights in crayon.

My favorite JibJab video is "2005: Year in Review." If you haven't seen it, go find it now. It's awesome (well, all their videos are, but this one... just watch it).

Stephen Rader said...

I'm not sure whether to laugh... or cry. Funny, but way too true.

BTW, are you familiar with The Capital Steps? Here's a clip from their "Springtime for Liberals" CD.

i know what you mean. my sister sent me the link and it's become a compulsion now. great stuff!

Stephen Rader said...

wizened wizard - I agree completely. Maybe we should laugh AND cry at this clip. To quote Dolly Parton in STEEL MAGNOLIAS, "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion." :)

Thanks for the link to SPRINGTIME FOR LIBERALS!!!

psycho-therapist (Lisa) - JibJab is incredible!! Just what I needed: One more thing to keep me IN the house and away from my search for Mr. Right... "Now" or otherwise.
