Smoke kills. No, really.
  • WOW. great find. Beautiful and entertaining. thanks rogerd!
  • Great post!
  • Sorry, I'm not yet at a point where the trivialization of planes flying into office buildings will elicit anything but awkwardness from me. I didn't think it was great, beautiful, very clever (even before that scene), or deserving of a WOW or any sort of exclamation at all. Maybe it's just the poor execution of it. Because I laughed out loud when reading some dumb joke on a blog about Sept 11. Maybe it's because they were New Yorkers too, and it felt like commiseration.
  • I'm with Daniel. Insinuating that the planes that crashed in to the WTC did so because the pilots were reading the newspaper is not funny. And the nicotine withdrawal being the cause of all the world's problems thing was stupid. Maybe Russian news isn't much better in quality than what their getting in North Korea. And why was Putin a ninja?
  • To me, Putin seems way more ninja than pirate.
  • Laughing at Americans is dissaprovde of by God. Please resume your mocking of foreigners, especially the French. Feel free to make specific reference to World War II.
  • /smoking=evil. why not this insane linkage as well as another one the multitudes call sane?
  • Laughing at Americans is dissaprovde of by God. Please resume your mocking of foreigners, especially the French. Feel free to make specific reference to World War II. I think you meant to post that on the other website. Your straw man isn't welcome here. P.S., mocking the French is popular all over the world. It's one of those common bonds of the brotherhood of man.
  • Amen, Daniel. It's possible to be a total Bush-hating atheist pinko intellectual and still think the French are ridiculous, ridiculous people.
  • I love the French. Its all Thierry Henry's fault.
  • The French are ridiculous, ridiculous people. It's another thing I like about them.
  • Damn French! Can't even sing in English like other civilzed people.
  • I'm all for laughing at Americans, the cartoon just wasn't funny. I'm reminded of this time that I met this guy from New Zealand in a bar near my house. They guy introduced himself and said he was from New Zealand. Hearing this I said something like "Oh really? New Zealand, huh. Aren't you supposed to make some kind of joke about all New Zealanders having carnal knowledge of sheep when you meet them?" This seemed to upset the Kiwi, which was a little scary because he was bigger than me and I was boxed in between the bar, a Britton, and a Canadian. His eyes got all big and some fire was coming out of his nose. I really thought I was gonna get clocked. Instead he just started off on some drunken ramble about how bestiality is really frowned upon in New Zealand. Come to think of it, his rantings were about as intelligible as stirfry's first post in this thread. Later that night I had some bean salad and some Spanish beer.
  • And why was Putin a ninja? I'm not too sure, though he was a champion Judo fighter, and a spy in the KGB.
  • I kinda liked that chap standing at the window watching the world fall apart. And the yellow submarine bouncing away. And Lewinsky going all cock-eyed and falling down. That's about it. The rest was just a little lame. And the music was good. Don't fling poo at me! *cowers* Well, maybe just a little poo.
  • no poo from here. i thought those russkies did a fine job with the animation.
  • and mexican, a story just for you: The kid lost the same tooth twice, once when he worked at it and pulled it out rather than wait, and once again when he could'nt find it at bedtime. He cried, but the tooth fairy wants hard teeth, not talk. The cat, meantime, has lost his balls, snipped off this morning. He hides away and mewls in a dark room. There is no ball fairy.
  • Well, heck, I thought it was cute. Thought so last year, too.
  • There is no ball fairy. *crosses legs*
  • Anyone else get a "Fight Club" vibe at the end?
  • Yessir, nothing says topical political satire like Clinton blowjob jokes and "Titanic" references.
  • Stirfry, that story is the best fucking thing I've ever heard.
  • f8xmulder, re: fight club reference... i thought i was the only one. i didn't mention because of rule 1 of fight club. overall, i enjoyed the clip even though i still have the urge to have a smoke.
  • alnedra - hee hee. lewinsky. cock-eyed. sorry. made me laugh. and, stirfry - no ball fairy. but my two cats didn't mope much, just sat there quizzically at the next crotch-licking opportunity, one leg straight up, the other skewed to the side, with a look that seemed to say "something seems to be amiss, but i can't quite figure out what..." derail: didja know that cats aren't snipped like dogs or people? they just yank 'em out. apparently the "grab and pull" method causes the testicular blood vessels to spontaneously pinch off, limiting bleeding. if you cut a cat with scalpel or scissors, you get more complications that just yanking out the testes. the things you learn when 90% of your students are on their way to vet school...
  • ah. new thought on this little clip. given the jumble of 90's and 00's references here, this could very well be the kind of thing that someone would put together 40 to 50 years from now, both out of a sense or parody and by mixing up the specific details regarding timing of events. if i were to make a short funny film about events leading up to world war II, for example, i imagine i would do a similar job of mangling the details, by trying to be funny and by not really knowing what happened and when. ok. did that recover this thread from my derail?
  • So this is flash from the future?
  • By clf criteria, the autors are definetively ahead of their time.
  • dng: you forgot to mention Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires and Arsene Wenger! also: what wolof said.
  • Yeah, but I hate Arsenal. I just love that boy Henry. And Zidane. And Guy Forget.
