Here's a video of a prominent US politician using a racial slur last week at a Eurozone meeting.

Thank you for the introduction to rickrolling.

I was not familiar with this time-jacking technique.

FWIW, though, I thought that the bartender looked a lot like Obama and I kept waiting for him to say something inappropriate between his dance moves.

You know, I never really regretted getting rick-rolled, because, to be honest, it is a pretty awesome song...  >.<

Aha!

It looks like I wasn't the only one who thought the bartender looked like Obama:

Ha! You know, Duncan Trussell (the drunk guy) is probably the most frequent guest on Joe Rogan's podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience." That podcast can be a bit vulgar and rough around the edges, but Joe and Duncan often get into some really interesting discussions on all sorts of random topics like aliens, drugs, evolution, and the nature of reality.

Crispin Glover, the actor who played Thomas Edison in that video (and, of course, George McFly from Back to the Future), is strange. One of the most eccentric actors out there. He made a guest appearance on the David Letterman show back in 1987 and pulled a bizarre, Andy Kaufman-style prank. He appeared in the interview as the character "Rubin" from a then-unreleased movie Rubin and Ed, and supposedly neither the audience nor Letterman had any idea that he was in character. (Virtually nobody knew anything about the movie Rubin and Ed at the time.) To call this an awkward interview is an understatement:

LOL.  The Joe Rogan Experience is the only podcast that I listen to.  I haven't listened to every single episode but I did go back and listen to every episode that featured Duncan Trussell.  Those two guys go deep, and I mean DEEP.  At first I was hesitant to start listening to the Joe Rogan Podcast, because I thought he was just some jackass that hosted UFC and Fear Factor, but man was I wrong.  Here is a taste (2:12) -- Joe compares humans to bacteria:

Here is another hit (4:39) -- Joe discusses Hippies and lazy people:

I'm still guaranteed a smile any time I check out Sammy Stephens' jumpin' rap commercial for "Flea Market Montgomery".  His flow is so smooth that it's just like a mini-mall.

The "dramatic chipmunk" (actually a prairie dog) is also 6 seconds of essential viewing.

And a recent one for anybody who wonders why I don't trust monkeys.  Here's an ultra-acrobatic (but failed) monkey attack that was thwarted by thick zoo glass.

I sensed your distrust of monkeys, but I never would have asked you about it (often those things are private matters).

That video combined with the periodic reports I hear of surly chimps ripping off human limbs gives me a sense of uneasiness about monkeys as well.

Here is another clip from Funny or Die.  Everyone has likely seen it, but it's worth re-watching.  Here is Pearl The Landlord (2:21):
