At a certain age, young people get seemingly uncontrollable urges. But, in accordance with God's plan, these urges must be controlled.

if only there were some more nasty comments and overall attitude, it'd smell of Sid Davis (recently posted of)

Lame. This kind of thing was funny the first 10,000 times it was done, not any more.

I'm a dumb hick. I found it hilarious.

I enjoy videos like this immensely, but when I read the post I immediately thought you were talking about how god cured gene of masturbation.

Speaking of clenching.

I'm too lazy to verify, but it sounds like portions of the narration are directly lifted from the Mormon guide to overcoming masturbation.

Narrator: "If you're a normal, healthy young man, you've probably had the urge now and again to make a fake informational video in a 1950's-style format. You've probably even got friends or family that like to make such videos about 'masturbation' or 'poop.' They probably think that making such videos is a 'hoot,' and that they're just giving the old gang a reason to laugh. What they don't know is... fake 1950's informational videos are from SATAN. Help your friends, and yourself: don't make these videos, and don't watch them when others do."

Is there a cable channel less funny than Comedy Central? Even Boston Catholic Television gets more laughs out of me. Saturday Fucking Night Live reruns and Mind of Mencia? It would have been funnier if the link went to a clip from Triumph of the Will.

Mind of Mencia

The worst.

This is from TV Funhouse, the failed Robert Smigel SNL spinoff that was on Comedy Central six years ago. Keep in mind that this show never made it past the eighth episode.

Had you actually turned on Comedy Central in the past five years, you'd know they no longer have the rights to SNL.

Also, anyone who doesn't find either the Daily Show, South Park, Colbert Report, or Drawn Together funny is seriously broken.

This sucks.

(Sorry. I just had an uncontrollable urge to shit on this thread.)

SNL seems like less of a right and more of an obligation these days.

I wish. All I ever see on is Mad Fucking TV.

Does Comedy Central still run MST3k?

No. But to make up for it, they don't show Benny Hill anymore either.

They haven't run it since the show moved to the SciFi channel after about the 5th season - the only way to see the Comedy Central episodes is on DVD.
