Butternut is a type of winter squash. Any squash with a hard rind that matures late is a winter squash.

Spaghetti squash and zuchinni are good examples of summer squashes.

Brilliant! A++

I, too, thought for a moment afterwards that Morgan might have been a better choice, what with his shining reputation of wanking, but upon reflection I honestly think Graham is the better actor, and really he shows it here. Superb work!

Although Morgan is still the manlier of the two, by far.

Awesome video!

Great audio quality and camera cuts on the anger bit.
I can't think of a signature.

I like squash. I think it is an excellent vegetable and deserves more credit. I was therefore quite pleased to see it appear here...

Meh - reminded me too much of Somebody Has To Change, which makes me rofl till I cry and i rewatch many many times, as many as is possible. On the other hand, was a nice tight little vid. I agree with whoever it was that said it was funny that the call wasn't about a pre-order :P
I think this needs watching again to see it more on its own and less as a bigger version of SHTChg. Will get back to ya.

On second watching - somehow much improved, except that I noticed the odd numbering where i didn't before!
Favourite bits where poor graham tries talking to himself 'hey...why don't we talk anymore?' wtf he used to talk to himself like that more??!! rofl. Also puppy-dog eyes when bargaining with God *cwute!* although the camera there is a bit shaky.
Why does G walk off at the end doing the 'pretend you're walking down imaginary stairs that are out of shot' walk? Confused me.

I was very confused when I saw this, because Misty made me watch it when it hit The Tube, and I'd forgotten that it was only hosted there till now.

Yes, Misty, confused enough to make my post count go up.

Anyways, Very Good Stuff.

Awesomeness.

I just rewatched it and at about 3:50 Graham says 'Aboot' instead of 'About'.

I heard no aboot, but it's probably just me thinking that canadians don't have an accent (we really don't). As for the anger camera cuts, I found them distracting. The cuts to close-ups were too short, so it felt like "Whoa we're zooming in- wait...back out?"

everyone has an accent. Canadians have Canadian accent, Americans have American accents, Brits have British accents, Irish have Irish accents, Scotts have Scottish accents, Aussies have Australian accents, Kiwis have New Zealand accents, and Indians(Asian, not American) have Indian(Asian, not American) accents.

and that's just those of us who speak English natively.

I'm just cheesed when Americans are all 'Har Har Har, you guys say Aboot! and that's all I know about Canadians!' Well I say back 'Har Har Har, it's spelled ROOF, not ruff! what are you a dog?'

Thank you emma. You beat me to the punch with that, but yes people, it's a Canadian vs American DIALECT, versus English with a German ACCENT.

Okay, this video is pretty entertaining. I mean the obvious diagnosis is pretty sad for those who have it, but this was retarded. And I mean that in a good way.

Your vowel shifts are rare and subtle, but they do occur.

It's a totally harmless thing, though. You should hear the people around here - they keep deleting the verb 'to be' from phrases and sentences, and it's enough to drive one mad. Mad!

Retarded? Like it's slowed down or impeded?
AAAAAAAAAAAAaaanyhow, about the accent/dialect thing, I really don't care, other than the aboot/ruff thing, because I've never heard an actual canadian say aboot, but HAVE heard an american say ruff. Also, I'm pretty sure that Ruff is a helluva stranger way to stay roof than Aboot is to say about.

I have heard people say aboot. I have a friend from New Brunswick and he says it all the time. It is exceedingly entertaining.
