Harry Potter and the Hogwarts Dance Team
Matt introduced the Hogwarts Dance Team to me by saying, “I’m not someone who uses ‘gay’ as an adjective. But this is the gayest thing I’ve ever seen.” It’s awesome – well worth the download time.
“The Aristocrats” as Bob Newhart would perform it
If you’ve never heard recordings of Bob Newhart’s old stand-up comedy, you’ve missed some great stuff. I’m not sure how funny this will be if you haven’t heard Newhart’s stand-up, but if you have heard it this is very giggleworthy.
“He Is The Box”
Law professor Ann Althouse blogs:
“He is the box.” Said by me in a discussion just now with a colleague. Topic: how Harriet Miers will behave if she gets to the Supreme Court. The “he” is Justice Scalia.
Her readers respond in comments by suggesting a number of increasingly ridiculous contexts in which Ann might have said “He is the box.” They also suggest a number of songs, for some reason. Probably the most fun I’ve ever had reading the comments on a law professor’s blog.
A very funny (or horrifying) prediction of what the newspapers will be saying when Alan Greenspan’s replacement is named.
The Far Side Lives On
As Chris Bertram points out, this quote – from a perfectly serious book about “alternative country music” – would make a fine caption for a Far Side cartoon.
Lazily labelled as “folk rock” during their ten-year career together, Richard and Linda were as attuned to Americana as anyone living in a Sufi commune in rural Norfolk could ever hope to be.
