I just found an awesome political cartoon. You all NEED to see it, even if you don't care about politics. Yes, it makes fun of both people. And keep the sound down, there's a wee bit of profanity

Okay, I laughed out loud. HARD. That was quite funny, I have to say. That little dance just cracked me up...

HAHA. I laughed out loud as well. Funny stuff. Especially Bill Clinton, "whatd I do?"

And is it just me, or was the guy from SNL (cant for the life of me think of his name) standing near the center at the end of the cartoon?

Come waste your time with me

Jesus God. That little jig with Cheney, Bush & Rummy made me spray my screen.

Damn you!

I know. That little arm-swinging dance is the best. The BEST!

I've watched that about 8 times now and everytime it shows him dancing, I cackle uncontrollably. I've sent that link to about 50 people.



Damn good stuff. The dance, the "U.N. pussy" line and Clinton saying "what'd I do?" kill me every time.

It's the Clinton thing that got me the most too. Hilarious.

The crazed "Yeaaagh" with Howard Dean's head shaking around got me.

Maybe I'm just weird, but I didn't really find it very funny. It was mildly amusing, mainly the Dean yell and the part with Clinton, but overall it barely got a chuckle out of me. I guess it's kind of cute and funny in a way, but not THAT funny.

At first i was skeptical but the second time was funnier. That Clinton bit is Hi-larious! I also like the Strangelove spoof.

Yes, I also enjoyed it more the second time around. The face photos were extremely well-chosen, the expressions were perfect. Notice the fawning looks that Rummy and Chaney are giving Bush while dancing their little jig....

The Strangelove was clever, and the Herman Munster morph made me chuckle, if only because I remember Gore on Jay Leno with a photo of himself and Tipper in Hollywood makeup as Frankenstein and Bride.

Democrats may have some secret B-movie villain PR schtick going on.

Clicking around their site and certain Flash videos I found some with hotspots.

Check Breedin' in Eden and mouse around the movie for interactive elements.

Godzillary lets you scratch decks to Aerosmith and jam with Guiliani

I can see some wasted hours checking out some of the cooler content on the site. Nice find.

I always seem to find these things late.

Here's another request for a mirror.

You need to load the right iframe to find the right .swf file.

Sadly, that link doesn't help because the file itself is still protected / redirects you to their BS $2.99 download page. They've found their little gold nugget now that a bunch of people have surely paid for it, so their servers are going to be "eternally slammed" until people stop buying it....

actually, if you download a stand-alone flash player, it plays the file just fine. i just showed it to a friend not 5 min. ago, and their website is still being hammered.

as for charing $3, why not? good for them. their efforts made something really popular, and now we have a supply/demand curve. more power to them. maybe this will inspire some other folks to make more entertaining stuff.

Not saying they have no right to charge for it, but I think it's fair to say that while they may have started charging for it because of the servers getting hammered (to cover extra costs), that's probably no longer the case. Not saying they're evil, just kind of BS IMO to change tack like that. Who knows maybe next week it will be back on the original page but I doubt it.

Thanks for the tip on the standalone flash player... I'll go to MM and download it.

No go on that Alc. Just opens quicktime and tells me it can't be played.

Try Google's cache of it... worked for me yesterday but didn't work when I just tried it, so YMMV.

It occasionally redirects to the website, somehow, but you should still be able to download it.
