Bird Brained



About a dozen people have sent me this video today, and I can certainly understand why. It's like a Dali painting -- it really, really is. Just sit back and let the surrealism wash over you like warm bath.

If you need a setup, here it is: What you're about to see is a dumb animal being slaughtered on national television.

And some turkeys dying.

I like the farmer guy, just standing there with this "Are you really going to do now?" look on his face.

You know she's right...we need a little more levity.

And nothing says "levity" to me like bright red sticky blood all over.

But then again, me and Caligula hung out in a previous life...

The only good thing about this video is that I was able to completely block Palin out because I was so mesmerized by the turkey murder.

I do love the look on the guy's face too. "Really? Ya sure you don't want to move the the left a bit?"

Watching the guy in the background reminded me of SNL's "TV Funhouse - Fun with Real Audio" segments. You know the ones where they play actual audio over bizarre animations. Then he made me think of a Monty Python's D.P. Gumpy sketch. Eventually my ears started to bleed... Robert Smigel cartoons, Monty Python, auditory haemorrhaging...Ladies & Gentlemen, Sarah Palin!

the 'chopping block' comment of the off-camera reporter is priceless.

I don't get it. This is exactly what she stands for. I'm sure if the cameras weren't rolling, she would have kicked the guy aside and chopped the heads off herself. That's the levety she was talking about...this is the best part of her day.

Isn't she the woman who's supposed to be all...less educated but politically savvy? Lacking in credentials but equipped with "common sense?"

Yeah. Um.

You know why her supporters say she has "common sense," all evidence to the contrary? Because they can't say she's intelligent or talented. The only other explanation for her political success is "ruthlessness and blind luck," and they can't say that.

Why bother beating a dead horse. Wouldn't Palin be better waiting until the next election?

Also would an average viewer have noticed the turkeys if they wern't mentioned?

Fred said...

Would her intelligence be diminished in any way at all, or would the state of Alaska fail if they stuck that miserable cunt in a wood chipper? I'll bet her legs would kick like a turkey's.

JLG said...

yes they would have noted the presence of the turkeys. the woman is so irritating you would try to look at anyone my her.
bahahaha
