first! this space reserved for humor

EDIT: After finally destroying the evils of AOL, I was able to see the video.
Bravo once again to Paul's many talents, now including the ability to say "what" in several tones and voices.

Ah yes, all of this headache could have been avoided simply by googling the sketch in the first place.

How did they ever understand it back before Google was invented?

A true American classic!

Very nice take on the classic sketch guys! I think saying "shutup" kinda killed it a little bit, but it was still very funny.

I always had an issue with the original sketch though...sometimes they'd rush the lines way too fast instead of letting the joke sink in for a second. Can't blame them after having to do that sketch who knows how many times.

Interesting take on a classic. I've never seen it done with more than two people, though, and I'm ambivalent about having the players respond to the duo. Still, I like it for adding that extra LRR flair as Korri pointed out.

P.S. I should make an effort to follow StoneageRocker's posts - it works out so well.

An amazing take on a classic sketch that I found hilarious when I saw it. That was amazing, good job.

And the end made me ROFL. Lil Jon ftw

Can't say it made me roll on the floor, but I smiled. I think I heard the French translation of the joke before, so I wasn't too unfamiliar.

I dunno, perhaps an extra 15 seconds or so of original content could have spiced the short up. LRR-specific memes or characters could have been used if you didn't feel too creative this week, even if I think you intentionally make most of the entries into the "Shorts" category independent of other movies' content.

Could also have been nice to see more of the "secondary" LRR crew.

Way to kill the mood. That's like having sex with your gf, and in the middle of it saying "Oh yeah, by the way, I have VD."

I think i saw something like this only at a rental store, with movies like "The day after tomorrow" due the day after tomorrow.

Real funny this week, but I couldnt help notice, was Matt wearing the same shirt Graham was wearing at the end of "Daylight Savings"? or is it just a popular shirt.

OMFG I was giggling throughout the entire thing... God, that was freaking funny!! The line "It's like talking to a brick wall" Graham said to Paul was especially funny to me because I use the phrase often, and each time Graham had to tell Bill to shut up after he interrupted him kept me laughing hysterically for some reason.

Extremely nice work, everybody!! :D

What's particularly funny is that Paul repeatedly showed signs he was understanding, and then Graham would misunderstand Paul's statements and conclude that he didn't get it.

The "it's like talking to a brick wall" line came right after Graham incorrectly rejected Paul's correct statement.

Kathleen got me the "Communist Party" shirt for my birthday last year, and Matt then went out and bought his own.

The cost of error-free comedy videos is constant vigilance, Cake. Constant. Vigilance.

By the way, nice custom user title.
