Whoever is in charge of marketing for GOP Candidate Mike Huckabee is an absolute mastermind. Watch this YouTube clip and you’ll see why.

This whole Chuck Norris thing is a huge trend/fad right now and kudos to the Huckabee camp for capitalizing on it. The YouTube clip was uploaded only two weeks ago and it already has nearly 1 MILLION views. This has got to be huge exposure for Huckabee. I’m not sure where he stands so far within the Republican party, but prior to this ad, I really had no clue who the guy was.

Anyway, props.

Two posts ago, I blogged about the game Portal that I was looking forward to playing. Well after 3 hours, I beat the game. Don’t think I’m some kind of video game guru, though. The game is pretty short. However, after I beat the game, I was delighted by the ending credits. A song plays that’s really funny, but you won’t understand it unless you play Portal.

Anyway, the song was written by this guy Jonathan Coulton. His website has over 40 or so original songs that are all pretty funny. One song of particular interest is a folk-y kind of cover that he did of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s ‘Baby Got Back‘.

It really reminds me of Nina Gordon‘s cover of NWA’s Straight Out of Compton and Obadiah Parker‘s cover of Outkast’s Hey Ya.”

Check him out at www.jonathancoulton.com and see his original music page under ‘music.’

I wish I could make folksy sounding tunes from rap songs. Ha.

I exit my English to find this scene in front of me. I notice it almost immediately, make a comment in my head, and walk past it. I stop dead in my tracks and decide that I need to take a picture of this. I backtrack and as nonchalantly as I possibly can, grab a snapshot with my phone.

For the sake of humor and drawing attention away from things too serious, please caption this set of photos:

Darwin Awards 2006!

And now, as the year is officially over, we pay tribute to those who have ‘offed’ themselves in such noteworthy fashion…

…Remember, there is no first place, because truly, no one really wins…

http://www.darwinawards.com/darwin/darwin2006.html

1st Runner Up: “Hammer of Doom”

(August 2006, Brazil) August brings us a winner from Brazil, who tried to disassemble a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) by driving back and forth over it with a car. This technique was ineffective, so he escalated to pounding the RPG with a sledgehammer. The second try worked–in a sense. The explosion proved fatal to one man, six cars, and the repair shop wherein the efforts took place.
14 more RPG grenades were found in a car parked nearby. Police believe the ammunition was being scavenged to sell as scrap metal. If it wasn’t scrap then, it certainly is now!.

2nd Runner Up: “High on Life”

(3 June 2006, Florida) Two more candidates have thrown themselves into the running for a Darwin Award. The feet of Jason and Sara, both 21, were found protruding from a deflated, huge helium advertising balloon. Jason was a college student, and Sara attended community college, but apparently their education had glossed over the importance of oxygen. When one breathes helium, the lack of oxygen in the bloodstream causes a rapid loss of consciousness. Some euthanasia experts advocate the use of helium to painlessly end one’s life.The pair pulled down the 8′ balloon, and climbed inside. Their last words consisted of high-pitched, incoherent giggling as they slowly passed out and passed into the hereafter.

Sheriff’s deputies said the two were not victims of foul play. No drugs or alcohol were found. The medical examiner reported that helium inhalation was a significant factor in their deaths. A family member said “Sara was mischievous, to be honest. She liked fun and it cost her.”

Honorable Mention: “Snake in the Grass” (Nobody died)

A hiker in Scotland picked up a grass snake so his brother could take a picture. Just as he reached for it, a black serpent slithered into view, so he grabbed that one, too. It was a Black Adder, Britain’s only venomous snake. Both reptiles sank their fangs into the 44-year-old, who responded with serious anaphylactic shock. He gradually and painfully recovered in the hospital. His excuse for his rash act? He didn’t think venomous snakes inhabited the whole of Scotland.

Honorable Mention: “Flyswatter” (Nobody died)

(April 2004, California) An adult education teacher gave 25 students an impromptu lesson in safety during his safety class. Using opaque reasoning, Teach figured the 40-mm shell he had found on a hunting trip must be inert. He kept the round and used it as a paperweight on his desk. After all, ordnance is such a unique conversation piece. But more notably, this particular ordnance was the teacher’s ticking ticket to fame.One spring morning, a bug crawled across his desk. Should he squash it with a tissue? Sweep it out the door? Leave it to pursue its happy existence, and continue on with his lesson? No; the teacher picked another alternative. He took up the “inert” artillery shell and slammed it onto the short-lived insect.

The impact set off the primer, and the resulting explosion caused him burns and shrapnel lacerations on his hand, forearm, and torso. No one else in the classroom was hurt. To the teacher’s further consolation, his actions did succeed in one respect: the bug was eliminated.



Satire gone too far?

So as we all know, Saddam was executed this past week. A huge milestone in the history of time, if you ask me. On the news today, aside from the late President Ford’s funeral and burial coverage, there was a lot of talk about the leaked execution video of Saddam.

I went online trying to find the clip. I’m not exactly sure why. I’ve seen some filmed executions online (read: my experience) and they’re not that great to watch. I was definitely disturbed and it didn’t sit well with my stomach. I think I just wanted to see if I could find it.

I did find it, but didn’t play it all for the aforementioned reasons. What I did find, however, seemed to strike a stronger chord within me.

The following is a clip from SNL’s “Saturday TV Funhouse”, an animated segment that is usually a political satire. As I watched it, I was both humored and disgusted. See if that rings true with you…

Saddam-Osama
Uploaded by PigLips

Obviously the things that are incredibly over-the-top, such as Osama and Saddam being able to shapeshift and President Bush bearing a striking resemblance to our primate friends, weren’t really all that offensive to me. The CIA agents ‘fornicating’ and Chaney talking about renaming Iraq to East Dakota reminded me a little bit of Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. The dialogue of the Iraqis seemed like a throwback to Team America: World Police, shouting things like, “Holy Jihad” and whatnot.

What really started to irk me was the commercials. Especially the one advertising rocks as children’s toys.

I don’t know. I think there’s a line that shouldn’t be crossed, and I felt like that one was taken a bit too far. But now, even as I sit here writing this, I’m thinking about the movies Borat and Team America. Were those satirical comedies, just like this one, considered to be taken ‘too far’?

I’m not sure where I would draw the line, but I do know that I just felt a little uneasy after watching this clip. The same way I felt uneasy after watching Borat and Team America. At the same time, though, is there such a thing as being too Politically Correct? I guess that depends on the person.

What do you think?
