Wow. Quite a bit of that was underwhelming. Tho, it's neat to see I have the same radio as they do.

That was painfully bad. I hope when I get my fifteen minutes of fame, it's for something a little less crap.

I'm sorry but "Pinky the Wild Cat" on the home page gets the Oscar. Not the Ramadi boys. :)

"Pinky" has to be one of my all-time faves. The officer's scream sends me into fits of hysterical laughter each and every time I hear it. It was done with such feeling.

Ok. There is nothing humorous about any war, especially this one. That being said, it's good to see soldiers using creativity to blow off some steam rather than taking it out on another human being.

Christ. I can rap better than that, and I can't rap for shit.

That sucked. There's a reason those guys are reduced to shooting people for a living.

I preferred "We Drink Tea," but that's just me. And apparently they're shooting videos for a living, as well as people, eh?

I think it's purposely horrible, because rap is such inane rubbish anyway.

i can never decide who to feel worse for; Pinky who obviously is freaking out with fear, or the poor guy on the receiving end of Pinky's claws.

Still, comedic gold that is.

It's still better than anything SNL did from '80-'84.

Oh come on, for a couple of guys who probably have nothing to do after being shot at all day, except sit around and think about how much they'd rather be home, it's pretty cute.

I just think it's pretty amazing that soldiers on the front line of a war now have access to the gear that allows them to produce something like this.

Um, you guys saw the original SNL video, right? I suppose it wouldn't seem very interesting if you hadn't seen the referent, but I thought it was pretty funny.

Wow. Tough crowd. Or maybe you haven't seen the SNL video as delmoi suggests. Either way, you have to give it up for:
"GPS is the best. Hey look! There are you."

Not amazingly brilliant, but pretty damn good for some guys who have an abundance of free time. And, you know, nobody was probably killed in the making of this.

I don't like Jell-O, actually.

Well that was bad, but because of your link I found Lazy Muncie which is really funny to me because I lived in Muncie for 4.5 years.

I preferred "We Drink Tea," but that's just me.

"Sure we don't have so much money, or as many bombs or guns, but what we lack in armaments, we make up for in hot cross buns"

Now, that was worth the time ...

I liked it.

The SNL skit is absolute gold compared to this...at least Chris Parnell can actually rap.
