Because If You Can Still Laugh, You're Still Free

|

Via Wonkette and YouTube, this 12-second clip makes me prouder to be an American than if I'd just found out that Lee Greenwood had died playing a Camp Gitmo benefit.

Warning to George Brett: Don't watch this if you've just eaten crab legs.

  1. What time is it? Nick must be stoned.

  2. Because If You Can Still Laugh, You’re Still Free

    But, how will I laugh tomorrow, when I can’t even smile today?

  3. We secretly switched these bloggers’ usual reason editor with someone from High Times. Let’s see if any one notices.

  4. OK, I give up. What cultural reference am I missing?

  5. OK, I give up. What cultural reference am I missing?

    It’s like a fruity-fun version of FDR, but with working legs.

  6. The 1960s Batman TV show, you Philistine.

  7. The video won’t play for me.

    Why do I always get a warped one?

  8. I laughed so hard Republicans came out of my nose.

  9. I’m not even high and I found that hilarious. If only I could smoke right now….

  10. The video won’t play for me.

    Why do I always get a warped one?

    Try opening in a new window (or the youtube page itself). For me at least, firefox no likely if there are too many embedded youtube videos.

  11. Yeah, sure, you’re “free” until Barack Obama comes by your house and you ask him a tough question.

  12. Funny!

    Yeah, sure, you’re “free” until Barack Obama comes by your house and you ask him a tough question.

    You must be absolutely frantic, TallDave. You’re dropping these turds on every thread.

    Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder.
    Yes, it’s true, it’s actual.
    Everything is satisfactual.

    Zip-a-dee-doo-dah
    Zip-a-dee-ay!
    My oh my, what a wonderful day!

  14. Thank you,

    as if i needed more reasons to love Batman.

  15. If you can still laugh, you probably haven’t been paying attention.

  16. Good work, EJM. I award you 14 points and a pony.

  17. If you can still laugh, you’re still free??

    Tell that to the Joker’s victims, I dare you!

  18. The video won’t play for me.

    Why do I always get a warped one?

    Try opening in a new window (or the youtube page itself). For me at least, firefox no likely if there are too many embedded youtube videos

    Installing Flash 10 should fix that Firefox 3 problem.

  19. joe be droppin’ sum RACISM from a movie banned in da USA.

  20. Be even better if you had him lip-synching the Batman on Drugs music…

  21. Does Joe the Plumber have a hairy or a shiny butt crack?

    At a library near you, now that Hoi Q. Polloi is there because of the free computers, I am there viewing all the butt cleavage as users become more intense and hover over in low-riders.

    Isn’t it funny how tit cleavage is now passe, but butt cleavage is titilating?
    Time marches on.
    We are way beyond the “23 skiddoo” at the old Flatiron building in NYC.

  22. I’ll see you and raise you:

    Dude, that was some pretty gnarly head/face violence in that one.

  23. I haven’t been able to play Reason’s Youtube links for the last week or so on anything but Internet Explorer. Firefox and Chrome get stuck.

    Anyone else having this problem?

  24. It’s ok when I do it, cuz it’s all, like, ironical.

  25. Anyone else having this problem?

    Does it get stuck on two seconds? It’s a flash problem. Google “flash archive” and download flash 9. It will be a big zip file with all of the flash 9 versions. Uninstall the flash currently on your system, and install one of the ones you downloaded (flash 9.45 works for me). I haven’t had a problem with that since.

  26. I don’t feel free. Oh, my shoelaces were tied together, never mind.

  27. Yup Sietz, about 2 seconds, then stuck. I’ll give your suggestion a try.

  28. welp.. thats funny. clive barker meets republicans

  29. if the youtube videos don’t work, try manually installing the flash player 10 beta plugin for firefox. it’s supposed to fix the issue with firefox and embedded videos.

    Does Joe the Plumber have a hairy or a shiny butt crack?

    an excellent! it used to be hairy, but it didn’t give him the performance he wanted as his “pencil holder”.

    So now he waxes it.

    It’s not really shiny, but it’s much more functional to hold those pencils

  31. Where’s the monocle?

  32. Does anyone have a link to the video of “what Sarah did last nite?”

  33. “It actually upsets me,” Mr. Wurzelbacher said. “I am a plumber, and just a plumber, and here Barack Obama or John McCain, I mean these guys are going to deal with some serious issues coming up shortly. The media’s worried about whether I paid my taxes, they’re worried about any number of silly things that have nothing to do with America. They really don’t. I asked a question. When you can’t ask a question to your leaders anymore, that gets scary. That bothers me.”

  35. Isn’t it a little condescending to constantly refer to him as “Joe the Plumber?”

    The man was a name. Joe Wurzelbacher or something.

    Calling him “Joe the Plumber” over and over is the elitist rich guy version of the guy who keeps saying “my black friend, Tony.”

  36. Here, look at these fartknockers:

    Nice bib overalls, frat boys.
