Don’t you just hate it when real life intrudes on your mockery of how absurd real life can be? Well, such was the case a couple of weeks back, when, just as I’d begun collecting links to funny videos from The Onion for an all-out “Smell The Onions” post, the folks at The Onion managed to get themselves all caught up in a damned “mockery gone too far” controversy. Yikes!
Well, if you don’t recall the controversy of which I speak, feel free to catch yourself up at ‘The Onion’ Called Quvenzhané Wallis the ‘C’ Word, The Onion Apologizes For Quvenzhané Wallis Oscar Tweet, and The Onion Mocks Itself For Quvenzhané Wallis Tweet And Backlash. As for myself, I’ve thought “long and hard” about it, and finally concluded that the show must go on after all!
And, for those who might object, I have only this, to say about that, again:
Unfortunately, the delay (and my nasty OCD tendencies) has resulted a major pile-up of video bookmarks. Which leaves me we no choice but to just throw a randomly selected bunch of them at you all at once. You will let me know which ones stick, won’t you?

A bit of Second Term Hope:

There now. Don’t you feel better? I know I do! Keeping oneself “current with the world around us” is so important, don’t you think?
I want ice water.
