Your Year-End Moment of Awww

Don McArthur has posted a delightful two-minute video of polar bears not falling for the camouflaged spycams.

Which, of course, brings to mind this:

Now, his was a delightful video. Monty Python's on the other hand... not so much.

Happy New Year, Brendan!

Brendan said...

And to you.

Even if you can't appreciate the brilliance of the Python.

Ocean said...

I just don't like to watch people being blown up.

Brendan said...

Yes, I suppose black humor is not for everyone.

I thought it was hilarious and a delight to see an old Monty Python again. Surely everybody understands that no one was actually blown up and it's all a special effects spoof. If you want to watch real people being blown up. you just have to watch reports from our wars or attacks on the twin towers. This spoof is brilliant because it's a spoof.

Surely, TC, it's understood it wasn't real. Not every spoof is brilliant or funny, and there are no rules about what's funny and what's not. Don't you know that already? Jeez!

In matters of taste there is no disputing, agreed. But if you're going to exclude things that blow up or are in dark humor or poor taste then you eliminate most of Monty Python, the Colbert repor', the Pink Panther movies, the road runner cartoons, Kathy Griffin, Chelsea Handler, George Carlin, Lewis Black and most stand up comedians. In fact you eliminate most of what passes for humor in our society. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, the dirtier and darker the better.
