A big pink twinkie in a diaper thrusting its pelvis in disturbing ways...and I'm laughing at it...should I worry? (I love his voice)

I like his disembodied eyes. Plus, he's a good hangover cure.

By the way -- anyone else recognize this as the "technical difficulties/please stand by" music for New York's Channel 5? (This was about twenty years ago, when stations still had "technical difficulties...")

I kept expecting for a lady to come out and say "Mr. Chase, the dentist is ready to see you know." Great link.

fyi: the song is "Whipped Cream" by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass

No no no -- spanish *flea*, not *fleet*, not to be confused with Spanish Fly.

This has been brought to you by the letter D (for D'oh!) and the "We Can Fact Check Your Ass" Librarians' Association.

I couldn't quite place the accent, if it is in fact a real accent and not some college student in his dorm room trying out his scottish brogue.

Why do all Herb Alpert songs sound the same? And why do they make any bit of animation funny?

jaden: it sounds like a fake London accent to my ear. In any event, it's definitely meant to be English, not Scottish.

Sorry, *self link warning* but I couldn't resist. My friend made this and I'm hosting it for him. The college kids in the dorm couldn't resist. Flashplayer 6 required. Hello Mr. Dick...

Memepool linked to this at another (now non-functioning) URL almost a year ago... but at least now I can update my own link....

But why is it (still) funny? [Answer not contemplated in order to preserve my own humanity]

It doesn't get really funny until about the sixth hour.
