Bonus dummy stuff: Albert Brooks tries his hand at ventriloquism. (via)

These guys are way better than the Teamspeak Choir, but I do like their earlier Roger Wilco work.

The true genius of Albert Brooks' "conceptual stand-up comedy" days made me want to yell at Andy Kaufman: "SEE? IT IS POSSIBLE TO BLOW THE AUDIENCE'S MIND AND GET A LAUGH AT THE SAME TIME!" Sorry, but it had to be said.

I'm looking forward to their next big hit, "Future Firewood".

I was thinking Ventrillo choir and I was deeply disappointed.

...I was deeply disappointed.

I imagined a horde of WoW or CS geeks squeaking in unison. Darn.

Is there something about the method of speaking without moving one's lips that makes the voices so very grating, or do they do it intentionally? It makes me want to stab things...

Mustache guy needs a bigger mustache or more practice at not moving his lips.
