SWAT Hand Signals Explained - That old TV show makes so much more sense now. [via /usr/bin/girl]

I was going to say that this is ripe for parody, but it quickly became apparent that someone had already thought of that.

I thought parody was supposed to be funny. Anyone know where the original is?

Not bad, I lauged out loud a bit. I've seen worst parodies. It helped that the first few were plausible so it surprised me a little.

Props to my homeboy Bob Urich, may he rest in peace. I never used these signals when playing SWAT on the playground at Roosevelt School, I did however hum the theme song while taking cover behind the fire escape.

yah, where is the original?

The parody part was quite funny, but then it just got repetitive.

yes, I think the original would have been much more interesting.

That was stupid.

Ask and you shall receive. Thanks google.

Not the full thing, but enough.

Jaek - it's very easy to sit around and criticise something for not being funny, not least if you're doing so in a decidedly unfunny manner yourself.

But some people actively go out there, do stuff and share it, for example the creator of the above parody... which as it happened made me laugh out loud. Being cynical is so last year.
