Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday (or, as it’s referred to now: “That one two-day stretch every year where we eat way too much turkey on Thursday and then trample-over one another for Christmas gifts on Friday”). You know, despite the fact that we find a new way to degrade the human race each year; I don’t really have a problem with the whole “Black Friday” thing. Sure, it’s gotten a little out of hand – but there’s another issue that effortlessly overshadows this one: Christmas music in November. I mean seriously people, can we not at least wait until after Thanksgiving? This is seriously getting out of hand; before we know it, we’ll be celebrating Christmas in December – the next Christmas, that is. Trust me, if we do not stop this blatant and unwarranted encroachment of “mixing and a mingling and a jingling swing” stuff, we’re going to start another nuclear war. That is a fact.

That being said, I feel like the least I can do is give Christmas music a little taste of its own medicine: I’m going to post a Black Friday video in December. Yeah, this is getting serious now.

You know, I usually don’t like those Improv Everywhere dudes, but I’m willing to sacrifice my YouTube standards for the greater good of the cause #KeepChristmasMusicInDecember (sorry if that hashtag’s a little long, I’m still getting a hang of Twitter).

This next video might require some background information, so if you’re a little confused, just look it up yo’ dang self! I’m not your Encyclopedia Britannica!

Now here’s a hot-button issue that just screams “Viral Video of the Week fodder:” gay marriage. Look, I know that both sides have their valid arguments – those for gay marriage claim it’s an issue equal rights and the right to happiness, those against it claim that it’s “just sorta weird, you know?” So yeah, it’s a pretty tough issue to tackle!

**Note: I guess I should take this time to apologize; by not posting an anti-gay marriage video, I might be presenting an unbalanced argument. I really did try to find one, however, when you type “anti-gay marriage” in YouTube, all that comes up are videos of Mel Gibson shouting profanities at children.

Hey! Who’s hungry?!


The best part of that video? The most recent comment (as of Thursday November 29, 2012): “Its need to be fried.” Deep stuff, JimJimJimNL, deep stuff.

Alright guys, that’s going to do it for this week’s installment; I hope you all have a great week!
