Hu is the new leader of China. George: That's what I want to know. Condi: That's what I'm telling you. George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new leader of China?

I liked this. It won't be as memorable as the original, but still, quite nice. I wished all of those people out there writing bad poems would work on something entertaining like this!

Disclaimer: I did not write this. I do not know who wrote it.

I do. It was Johnny Carson, and it was a lot funnier when it was about Reagan. Get some new material, dipshit.

actually, I think it's more like:

New Republic during the Reagan Presidency = Metafilter during the Bush presidency

When Hu visited D.C. for the first time, in May 2002, "Who's Hu?" was the headline of every think tank piece, of every independent analyst's white paper, of a ton of newspapers, etc.

1: Who's that awful singer from American Idol last year? You know, "She Bang, She Bang" and all that?
2: He's Hung.
1: Yes, yes. But what was his name?

hey, I have a collection of some pretty funny stuff from '99, can I start posting now?

I suspect (totally without proof) that "Who's on First" is easily the most parodied comedy bit of all time. Quite a feat, really.

Another, and one of my favorites: Who's on Stage? (self-link, Animaniacs transcript):
Skippy and Slappy are at Woodstock. Roger Daltrey is onstage singing…

SLAPPY: Skippy, what is the name of that group playing on stage?

SKIPPY: Who.

SLAPPY: The name of the group.

SKIPPY: Who.

SLAPPY: The group on stage.

SKIPPY: Who.

SLAPPY: The group playing on stage.

SKIPPY: Who.

SLAPPY: You're starting to sound like an owl, Skippy.

alternatively: I'm not sure who the statues on the front of Frist are supposed to be.
