People die in these circumstances.  –  Darci Tierney

I saw this video pop up a few days ago; someone decided to compile all of the silly window cameo jokes from the old Batman TV series, and it seemed an apropos feature given Adam West’s recent demise.  The links above it were provided by Tim Cushing (“patience” and “bicycle”), Jillian Keenan (“happens”), Radley Balko  (“partisanism”), Cathy Reisenwitz (“whatsoever”), Kevin Wilson (“game”) , and  Lenore Skenazy (“lucky”).

Rarely on this side of the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea are we blessed with propaganda so divorced from the surly bonds of reality that it sails upward, ever upward, into the realm of surrealism.
–  C.J. Ciaramella

The past few weeks have been rather dry in the interesting link department; I reckon it’s because the clowns performing on the national stage are even more buffoonish than usual, and their pratfalls are taking attention away from murderous cops, the weird behavior of Floridians and the like.  But there was a sudden upswing in sex work stories last week, so we’ll see where this goes.  The video is just here to make Grace smile (it was her birthday last Wednesday); she also provided the first link, and the others above the video are from Popehat (“Gygax”),  Tushy Galore (“NONE”), Eddie J Cunningham (“ill”), Radley Balko (“together”), and Wendy Lyon (“functions”).

I can’t breathe.  –  John Hernandez

The big news this week is, of course, the death of Adam West, Batman in the campy 1966 TV show.  I’ve featured a video of the theme song so you can play it while reading the obit.  The links above the video were provided by Popehat  (“faking” & “execution”), Radley Balko (“welcome” & “dummies”), Walter Olson  (“PETA”), and Jesse Walker (“collide”).

I could see planes circling in mid-air.  They grew in number and hummed, darted and dipped low.  I could hear something like hail falling upon the top of my office building.  –  Buck Colbert Franklin

If you’re phobic of snakes or just easily disgusted, you probably don’t want to watch this video, contributed by Scott Greenfield; the links above it were provided by Mike Siegel, Walter Olson, Amy Alkon, David Ley, and Lenore Skenazy (in that order, skipping the first link).

This bill would effectively end all police liability.  –  Robert Phillips

I laughed out loud several times at this very funny Doctor Who parody that Franklin Harris called to my attention a few weeks ago; he also gave us “RIP”.  The other links above the video are from Radley Balko (“welcome” and “state”),  ManCrack (“Florida”), Furrygirl (“upset”), and Walter Olson (“visible”).

All that was left…[was] a pair of sandals and his underwear.
–  Deacon Nkosi

Just in case you missed it, the big news of the week is that Chelsea Manning is finally free again after Obama commuted her sentence as one of his last acts as President.  The video is one I came across by accident, and the links above it were contributed by Rick HorowitzPopehatLucy SteigerwaldMike RiggsMike Chase  and Mike Siegel (in that order; the last two are two links in one line).

I can’t breathe.  –  Justin Thomson

I don’t know why this video of a brick in a washing machine on a trampoline is so funny, but it is.  The video was provided by Mike Siegel, who also provided “does”; the other links above the video are from Popehat (“hate”, “cancer” & “monsters”),  Emma Evans (“state”), and Tim Cushing (“tone”).
