The internet really is a marvelous invention, I wish they would have thought of it sooner. Not only can we communicate with people all over the world in real time (CM can bust my balls from 7000 miles away) but those that we would never even hope to meet can bring us some joy and reflection through that other cool invention, youtube.
Two youtube personalities that I now can’t live without (OK, I probably could, but I would not like it) is Pat Condell, that irascible God fearing (hardly) Brit who has that religion of peace all figured out, and drinking with Bob (not sure what his real name is) who had Barack Obama figured out from the start (but have a drink first, it will all make sense.)
Their latest rants have to do with The Middle East, shocker , first, Pat:
It does seem odd that such a small number of people can be a burr under the saddle of so many, imagine if Muhammad actually knew a Jew and had something nice to say about them.
Don’t worry, he likes to hyper ventilate, it calms him down, that, and a couple of drinks. Peruse his site and you will find many pearls just lying there waiting to be picked up.
Both these guys are off the charts popular because they have used brevity and wit to tap into what many people are thinking (but don’t have that British charm or the liquor tab that Bob can afford). And, if you can work in a joke by making fun of someone worthy of derision, all the better.
Any youtube personalities you follow on a regular basis?
