A man can watch a lot of videos in two years, which is how long I've been writing this column. And for the most part, every single video is nothing but a waste of time. (Except that Bas Rutten self-defense tutorial, which has saved my life on more than one occasion.)
Outside of that, one can assert with a fair amount of confidence that the thousands of videos of soccer balls to the crotch, inadvertently insane adverts, turtles humping sauce pans, and humans digging deep into their souls to tap the wellspring of absurdity that lives inside all of us — those were just distraction. And I've loved every second of them.
But like a free trial month of HBO or Matt LeBlanc's acting career, all good things must come to an end. Which leaves me with a cache of videos that tickled my fancy but didn't quite fit into a neat little package of five (my editors' heretofore standard recommended weekly dose) like those grand Olympic moments or misleading old-timey propaganda.
Because I don't want the world to miss out on a racist Jesus-loving puppet sing-along on my account, here they are: the twenty-three best leftovers from my two years of chumming the blogopshere. Dig in, feel free to forward, and try not to cry laughing.
