That same thing happens to me as in that video, but when I search for porn.

A friend of mine recently started using the Google-powered voice recognition on his Android to send text messages. It's not perfect, but decent enough for sending quick missives while on the go. A couple of weeks ago I sent him an SMS asking him when he'd be getting off work. After a minute, he texts back:

heading home now call you later LOL POOP

He swears he didn't say that last part. At all. I was inclined to disbelieve him, but after watching some of these videos, I don't know. Maybe the big G is finally sapient enough to develop a very weird sense of humor. (BOOGERS)

Well, since youtube videos can be 15 minutes long now it could be worse.

You can click on some of the parts of the images to load new videos. Try clicking the "Azzip".

Well, he gets some water halfway through. And then a few seconds later there's an incongruous laughing sound from off camera. So you have that to look forward to.

This is kind of like that Jonathan Coulton/John Hodgman hobo song from a couple years ago, except if Jonathan Coulton hadn't showed up and all the hoboes were named "Pizza."

It's a shame the video doesn't have automatic transcriptions turned on. I think I am not completely clear on some of the words the star uses at some points during the video.

after about the 30 second mark and it got weird, i looked at the video time and thought "i really hope this is 10 minutes of 'pizza'". wish granted!

i'm pretty sure the incongruous laughing sound was the audio from the double rainbow video.

the top 2 comments are I like the part when he says "pizza" and I like the part where he says "Pizza". go where!

Well, in fairness, the part where he says "pizza" is the best part.

Please don't say that. That's just a cruel and unnecessary idea you're throwing around there. Cut it out.
