In the words of the great Neil Everett, “Howzit?” Welcome back to yet another installment of the Viral Video of the Week! I trust that you all have been on your best behavior lately, so as a reward, here are some videos. You are welcome.

Quick! Name four of the most American things you can! Ok, do you have them? Excellent. Now, if you’re really an American, you obviously said: “the frontier,” “truck driving,” “shaving 5-o’clock shadows,” and “hot chicks in flannel” – in that exact order. Well my fellow patriots, here’s a video that’s so American that it even makes Ted Nugent shut up for a few seconds:

Now if that video doesn’t make you want to go out and buy a handgun just for the heck of it, then you’re clearly a communist. Thank goodness I actually use Barbasol in real life (as opposed to internet life, I s’pose), I wouldn’t be caught dead letting any “foreign” cream touch this handsomely-chiseled canvas of a face.

This next clip doesn’t really need any introduction, so instead I’m going to give a shout-out to my braj David for recommending some of the videos for the blog thus far. Everyone say “Thank you, David.” Oh, and while I’m still in a shout-out mood, this one goes out to Jake: I really need that ‘Grace Under Fire’ box-set back soon, I’ve been going through some severe Brett Butler withdrawals recently:

See mom? I told you that blogging-while-driving wasn’t that bad of an idea! Who’s the ignorant one now?! Maybe the next pedestrian I run over will finally deserve it, who knows?

Speaking of those “sorry, my B” moments, here’s a clip of a grown man wearing a costume (and not on Halloween, might I add) who obviously has some childhood trauma he’s still trying to get over:

Wow, that just might have been one of the best so-awful-it’s-funny things I’ve ever seen – and that’s saying a lot, I’ve watched my fair share of the WNBA (and by “fair share,” I mean “SportsCenter highlights”).

Ok, time to wrap things up with another adorable animal video (Note: This video was sent to me by a friend. Let the record show that I would never ever watch this television channel – let alone any other TV station that isn’t affiliated with the CW):

Holy crap! How do those guys do that?! I can’t even keep my own dog from pooping in my friends shoes whenever they come over! Whatever they’re doing, it’s working – and working much more effectively than Will Ferrell’s venture into the hobby:

Ok guys, that’ll do it for this week’s edition. I hope everyone has a spectacular weekend – I, like many fellow Ags, will be dunking my ring (finally) this weekend. For those of you who don’t know, “dunking your ring” has been a tradition around these parts for generations. The prototypical Ring Dunk goes as follows: the “dunker” puts their Aggie ring in a pitcher of beer, chugs the entire pitcher as fast as they possibly can, and then ralphs uncontrollably in some bush while thinking: "Why the heck did I just do that to myself?!" Hooray for tradition! See you guys next week (assuming I survive)!
