Hilarious Portal Video (NSFWOK: Not Safe For Work Or Kids)

I had to put that “or kids” in there because my kids like watching me play the “shooting holes” game, a.k.a. Portal. It is awesome. I’ve talked about it before, but it is worth mentioning again since I just found this video, and I had been playing it again earlier tonight.

I kind of suck at it though. I haven’t even gotten to the turrets that star in the video. But I since already know about the “Rosebud”-esque ending, this video doesn’t spoil it. Beware, it’s drenched in profanity and 1337-speak so it’s not for everyone. And it probably makes little sense if you’re not familiar with Portal. But I found it absolutely hilarious.

Ben Affleck as Keith Olbermann

I like Keith Olbermann, but I can recognize how over-the-top he is. He’s not quite as unpleasantly antagonistic towards the right as Bill Maher, but he sometimes comes close.

Ben Affleck did a pretty good skewering of him last night on SNL, culminating in an absolutely brilliant “Special Comment” in defense of… “Miss Precious Perfect.” Watch…

Now, I just wish they’d post the Giraffes video by the Staten Island Technical High School A/V club.

I will miss one thing about Sarah Palin…

…when she retreats back into the relative obscurity of the governor’s mansion in Juneau. And that’s Tina Fey’s impersonations on Saturday Night Live. Even the governor herself enjoys them… at least with the sound turned down.

As I was watching the vice presidential debate last week I was already thinking ahead to the skit that would inevitably be on SNL in two days. I didn’t get to watch it live but I just watched it online and it’s probably the most I’ve laughed out loud at anything on the show since “Dick in a Box.” Let’s give some credit to Jason Sudeikis; his McCain-loving, Scranton-detesting Joe Biden was on par with Tina Fey for laughs. I’m just glad I wasn’t the only one who had contemplated a “maverick” drinking game.

(I had to strip out NBC’s Internet Explorer conditional comments to get the video to show up in Safari. I could probably have taken the time to fix their code properly so it will work in all 3 major browsers but, well, I don’t really care about IE. But if you’re stuck with it, here’s a link to the video on NBC’s site.)
