from my previous experience in linking to the World's Finest News Source, the humor tends to be unappreciated 'round these parts..

Oh I don't know...there was the monkey collider last month (http://www.bautforum.com/off-topic-babbling/79613-super-monkey-collider-loses-funding.html) :)

The link's not so bad, but the description could be improved. A very thoughtful writer might identify the source and format, so the reader doesn't have to parse the URL and hope.

By the way, from my parsing, it's the humor site The Onion, if others didn't make that clear already, and the matter is video of unknown-to-me length, but probably around a few minutes. I hope.

If you don't have a taste for humor, or thought the link might provide the actual content described, or if you don't have the resources to handle video, be warned.

I love satire as much as the next person, but I thought the video was a bit harsh.

i like the Kobe Bryant article in the latest edition.
and they do have the best editorials anywhere, but it's too bad that Herbert Kornfeld died that tragic and untimely death. he wrote the best editorials.

Quite sure. Ever watch CSI? Or Special Victim's Unit?
