..if you haven't seen it, here it is. Take it for what it's worth, and have a laugh. I mean.. if you can't laugh at yourself a little, who can you laugh at?

Yup. Still funny though, and tons of people haven't seen it. Even if you have, it's decent quick entertainment to see it again.

There are no cacti there!

Well, maybe there were in 97 when it was @ a different spot.

My theory on the cacti is that it was written as a rebar incident, but the writers realized they'd have to explain rebar. Voila, cacti!

Oooo.. that is some serious delving! Good call. I feel like we could break this episode down like Billy Graham analyzing the NIV..

The whole event is really just a bunch of bedtime stories that have been passed down from generation to generation until some asshole king decided to have his minions put the quill to parchment and call it the "word" of Larry Harvey and make us tithe our ticket prices yearly. But.. as long as they keep giving that killer Kool-Aid at communion every year, I'm in.

(not to mention what they put in the crackers :wink: )

the rocks are actually much bigger than that, there is no way that Dewey could have gathered the rocks.

we all know that now.

I think it's pretty damn funny, myself. Unique style of doing things. Comedy as with art is all in the eye of the beholder.

American humor is different, perhaps?

Very. I've always thought Monty Python and other British shows were just.. uhh.. lame? Totally different comedic tastes.

Those had to be the funniest vids I've seen in a while! I have'nt had a good laugh in a while. Thanks junglesmacks and weirdscience!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

Yep, just different taste I think.. perhaps it was because i was made to watch it over and over by an ex-boyfriend when we were living in Toronto some years ago... !

I think I prefer more leftfield humour... I do think scrubs can be funny for that... I wonder what would be the result if they tried to do a BM episode?!

Hey man, how did I miss that fire catapult!!!!???? Fuck! All I saw were those awesome smoke rings! !

Also, I did NOT get to sleep with my shaman (palm reader), what a jip!

Reese had such a good time, now I understand why I see those "Don't burn the MAN" bumper stickers!

The multiple "meltdowns" of dad were great too.

I remember the mom as being portrayed much better, my memory has faded a bit or this was edited...she seemed tame.

Looked like a good weather year...zero dust.
