This one is entirely his fault.
Ahhh, plausible deniability.

Ahh, not quite as hilarious as some of the other WTs, but still pretty dang awesome. It gave us some nifty insight into "Teh Liff end Tiems of Mogran".

More and more I am convinced that Morgan is of the breed of cook/chef that simply defies logical explanation. I have difficulty understanding the mysterious changes that occur within the physical matter of the objects and substances that are involved in such cooking.

Somehow, we are told by Morganesque men with meat cleavers, somehow the mass of undesirables before us can be made safe for human consumption by calling only upon the paltry forces of thermal energy and physical combination. We think to ourselves, Impossible. You could sooner sight an English schooner if full sail, gaily traipsing across my back patio and through the thicket of woodlands beyond.

We watch in stupified amazement as the seemingly incongruous collection of materials ranged around the kitchen changes before our very eyes. As one watching a madman play god in a genetics lab, we stand horrified as the cook proceeds to take up each piece, to splice it, alter it, contort it into unnatural forms, and add it to the sickly mass of organics and synthetics he is brewing. We shudder to imagine the terrible creation that will emerge from the travesty before us.

Only we are soon to be struck dumb by the fabrication of an Ambrosia.

We are hesitant. It must be a trick. Yet the alure is incredible. We throw caution to the wind and sample the result, and we find ourselves stunned. The creation of something so incredibly amazingly good could not have possibly resulted from a mere human like Morgan combining the ingredients we know went into making the substance.

Could he be a magus, a practitioner of lost magic? Some ancient being roused from an ageless sleep within the depths of the earth? Perhaps he holds a pact with the forces of the Nether, or he secretly covets and exploits the mind-bending technologies of some far advanced space-faring race.

The mystery is incomprehensible, the process unknowable, and yet one feels that such questions need not be answered at times. Why question a miracle? Just accept it, and be blissfully thankful that people with such supernatural abilitiles in the art of cooking exist on this planet.

You had some really good ideas that worked a little bit or almost worked, but this video didn't quite reach above and beyond... it needed a bit more to be truly awesome, though as it was it was still funny. Not your best work, but it was pretty good!

Morgan, I was asked to pass this around you, to quote: "he should wear a suit more often. working morgan is way hotter than normal morgan." Just something to keep in mind I guess...

I'm getting wonderfully, terribly, horrible ideas for a series of fake porn movie box covers starring Working Morgan...

Except for the fact that we all have been told about the crew's workplaces, Morgan just doesnt seem like the type to be awake all the time. Good video too, except for being forced to stare at his man humps for as long as we had to.

The second scene was totally "camera-in-a-box"

The looked like a darn good smootie!! I want one! But... I'm too lazy.

I was totally singing along with the victory song.

And what the heck was second breakfast? Army rations?

And three computers?? THREE???

Holy crap, Morgan... is your work REALLY that boring? I mean, honestly. I get why you're online so much now, cause if not you'd be doing things like scanning your junk. :roll:

Oh, and as if I probably haven't said it before, I agree with whoever told Master Gunner to quote them. Suits + Morgan = awesome.

Morgan works at Rogers selling phones.

I go see him sometimes.
That's all he does.
Scanning his junk and all.

I was bored so I spent half an hour one time watching him play that fucking dice game.

I love having an interesting job, that I don't have to show up for, but still get paid for.

I thought for a moment it may be a reference to Douglas Adams "The Meaning of Liff", which is a great read.

LIFF (n.)
A book, the contents of which are totally belied by its cover. For instance, any book the dust jacket of which bears the words. 'This book will change your life'.

It is indeed, actually. My only creative contribution to the video.

I was expecting him to spend a day in a lift... i've only just woken up and my eyes haven't adjusted yet.

Also, something tells me that would of been much better if you'd actually recorded more of your day. Perhaps more of the morning or after work stuff.

Also! You take far too much effort with breakfast. You are a fraud and a cheat to the whole lazy bum society. Drop your head in shame!

I have been... I suppose the only word for it is exposed... I have been exposed to a piece of writing (in the same sense that Chernobyl was exposed to radioactive fallout) so incredibly, insanely purposefully mispelled and retardedly written that after awhile it starts to gain cohesive properties and seems to actually make sense.

Part of that is no doubt due to the fact that it was written live in the digital presence of other internet people, and thus as the story dragged on, the effort of purposefully misspelling became too great and the author literally slipped up stylistically. The other part of it is that prolonged exposure to anything will acclimate you to it.

Let us simply say that I found it was impossible for me to stop reading it, much as one finds it impossible not to stare at a terrible accident between a bus full of school children, a tractor trailer, and a Boeing 747.

In light of this piece of writing, I am now critically unable to be shocked by minor purposeful misspelling, and indeed, am merely somewhat amused by them. It seems almost natural to have seen A Day In The Liff, even without the Douglas Adams reference.
