Sharks vs. Jets, 2009 remix

We all know that when rivals reach an impasse, there is only one way to settle things:


Oh my goodness. The Big East Baseball Championships are this week. A scheduled game between UCONN and USF got rained out, so instead of going back to their hotels and hangning out like normal people, the teams decided to take the time to bust a move.

UCONN served USF. USF danced back. So naturally, it was on.

Luckily for us the cameraman had nothing better to do but hang around and film this for posterity. Let's go to the tape (fast forward to 5:45 to see the remarkable limbo skills of #42 Kevin Vance.)

I think UCONN takes this competition, though USF put up a good fight.

One thing that bugs me though is that this seems like the lamest rain delay in history. Its not even raining and the field looks dry. I think these guys really just wanted let their inner Zac Efron out.

Das Birds and Das Capital

For about the last year or so we've been having an economic dilemma. Rising unemployment, dwidling savings, frozen credit, stock market in the tank... listen, we all know by now what's going on. But how to fix it? That's the real puzzle.

Leave it to the Germans, that crafty pretzel eating race of ubermen, to come up with a solution. Its simple really: make more money!

Sure you say, but how? Duh! The same way you make more of anything: sweet, sweet love. Shagging, to be precise. As shown in this new commercial from a German finance company (at least, I hope its a finance company).

Warning: this video is guaranteed to disturb or entertain you. Or even better, do both at the same time.

President Obama's standup routine

From last nights White House Correspondent's dinner. A couple groaners, a few really funny moments. Overall a pretty good performance for a non-comedian. That teleprompter bit was gold. Plus: Captain Morgan!

You should see him filibuster

There's a saying that legislation is like sausage: you don't really want to watch them make either one. In general I would agree, but every once in awhile the festering pile of idiocy which is the United States Congress manages to be sexy and entertainment (un-ironically, that is).

CSPAN is so dirty sometimes.
