We’re not gonna let her go until she’s released to a parent or guardian…If we let her go and she goes around the corner and has an aneurism and dies, that’s on us.  –  Paul Kifer

Once in a while, instead of a full video, I feature a GIF or Vine because it’s just too good to pass up; I got this one from Nun Ya (who also provided “recorded”) and it’s horrifyingly hilarious and weirdly fascinating.  The links above it are from  Robert King (“Unheimlichkeit”), Walter Olson (“wrong”), Jesse Walker (“ghost”), Rick Horowitz (“reading” and “stalled”), Lenore Skenazy (“bullied”), Emma Evans  (“business”), Popehat (“car”), and Scott Greenfield (“schools”).

I will never try to go out and try to do anything nice for anyone again.  –  Ken Cronkhite

I probably should’ve posted this video last week, but I already had something there & it honestly didn’t occur to me to switch them.  Given the reaction to this sophomoric ad online, I would say it’s still too soon for this kind of humor.  The video was provided by Nun Ya, and the links above it by Mike Siegel (“fascism”),  Popehat (“reason” & “drunk”), Mistress Matisse (“queen”), Radley Balko (“hate”),  Lucy Steigerwald (“OD”), Emma Evans (“flirt”), Molly Crabapple (“doctor”), Jesse Walker (“clown”), and Scott Greenfield (“gypsy”).

It’s illegal.  It’s dangerous.  It’s inappropriate, and it’s creating community concern so it needs to stop.  –  Ken Miller

Today’s video is a sequence from a British TV show in which comedians have to improvise routines on the spot; it was provided by Jesse Walker, who also gave us “Prisoner”.  The other links are from Mike Riggs (“fascism”), Tim Cushing (“protect” and “bureaucracy”), Tushy Galore (“waste”), and Mike Siegel (“help”).

He clearly made a decision to run me over, you know, and kill me.  –  “Officer” James Burns

What the fuck, 2016?  First David Bowie, then Prince, and now Gene Wilder?  How many beautiful weirdos are you going to take from us?  No, wait, don’t answer that; just…stop.  The obvious choice for a Gene Wilder tribute video would be “Pure Imagination”, but since I already featured that one several years ago, here’s another wonderful one.  The links above it were provided by Jesse Walker  (“clown”), Mike Riggs (“tried”), Tim Cushing (“drive” and “crime”), and Mike Crawford (“basketball”).

My bubble is at the bottom of the ocean.  –  Reza Baluchi

Transposing songs from a major to a minor key (or vice versa) always makes them sound strange, but this example (provided by Mistress Matisse) goes from sounding like something that should be in a romantic scene to…well, listen for yourself.  The links above it were contributed by ClarissaTim CushingNun Ya,  Chris HallGrace and Cathy Reisenwitz, in that order.

The fact that you’ve got pinpoint eyes and you’re looking directly into the sun and they’re not dilating due to the sunlight, I believe you to be under the influence of a dangerous drug.  –  “Constable” Richard Power

A while back several of us on Twitter were discussing videos we found sexy, and I was hard-pressed to think of any except this one, which I found incredibly sexy at the time.  And that’s your periodic peek at the deep weirdness of my psychosexual landscape.  The links above it were provided by Mistress Matisse (“does” and “universal”), Emma Evans (“protect” and “protect”), Walter Olson (“cities”), Cathy Reisenwitz (“young”), Radley Balko (“maps”), and Elizabeth N. Brown (“Sweden” and “epidemic”).

She could…have paid for the panties before she put them on.  –  Halmstad District Court

I discovered this darkly funny Indian insurance company commercial while reading an item featured in yesterday’s news column; don’t worry, you’ll be able to understand the plot even if you can’t understand the language.  The links above it were provided by Mike Chase (“Orwell” & “marry”), Police Misconduct (“protect”),  Jesse Walker (“headline”), Mike Siegel (“archaeology”), Scott Greenfield  (“wrong”), Wendy Lyon (“Sweden”), Elizabeth N. Brown (“laws”), and Radley Balko (“volunteer”).
