That is the best puppet Shai-hulud.

Also, I now have a use for my old blue eyeshadow!

Nice title. I also would have accepted, "Long Live the Sweders!"

He who can swede a thing, controls a thing.

That was almost as bad as the movie. And the Alia was WAY too old.

The single best moment in Jack Black's career is when Danny Glover's character explains Blackface, and his character gets it, all without words.

Loved it but needed more DEW, DEW, DE-DEWN.

Our supremacy on Caladan depended on sea and air power. Here we must develop something I choose to call cardboard power.

Only seven minutes?

This is much, much better than the original. I mean that seriously.

Explains why Duck was wearing a goofy bobby helmet that day.

Weird how many of those people I know; Twin Cities fandom is a tiny twisted knot. We have folded space from St. Paul.

Actually a lot easier to follow than the original!

Then you are in luck - to quote from the video description: " Coming soon, the extended cut that is even truer to the original in both length and incoherency!"

That was the funnest thing I've seen in a while - I'd just like to say I think what Muad'dib was trying to say at the end is that "when the big man comes at the small man it is the wise small man who steps aside."

And also that the ending song is really ridiculous!

"He's dead! Dead! DEAD!"
"I'm DRIVING!"

I just rewatched the original for the nth time last week, and this bit made me laugh to tears.

This is how I always visualized Jodorowsky's Dune.

We'll find out soon enough: "Jodorowsky's Dune is a 2013 American documentary film directed by Frank Pavich. The film explores Chilean-French director Alejandro Jodorowsky's attempt to adapt and film Frank Herbert's science fiction novel Dune in the mid-1970s." [wiki]

Wait, how can this be? It went away a few months ago, as all Calvin+Hobbes derivates seem to disappear. Now it is back and says at the bottom "Calvin and Hobbes: © and ™ Bill Watterson, used with permission.". Is it officially endorsed (and possibly canon)?
