It is one of life's sad injustices that virtually anything you can think of is funnier when done by a midget. Alackaday and rue!

that guy's great! he's got the attitude and the moves. I am always impressed by anyone who can moonwalk.

I can't beat that.

Prediction: Michael Jackson impersonators will replace Elvis impersonators. And they will be much iller.

I can moonwalk, psho. Very badly. I learned it from the web, just so's I'd have another way to embarrass and disgust my teenage stepdaughters. You can't have too many of those.

Am I stupid or is there no way to watch Google Videos in a reduced size? Seriously, YouTube is a million times better for that reason alone.

davebush, the button in the lower-right lets you make it fairly small ("original size"). not sure if that helps.

davebush, use the arrow on the bottm-right corner to choose yor preferred viewing size.

People LOVE to watch midgets. It wouldn't matter if he was dancing to a Michael Jackson song, or not.

heh someone just posted that to videosift, and i found my way back here through the via.
posted by sourbrew at 6:25 PM on March 19, 2006

also on post, what shnoz-goblin said, midgets equal hilarious.

The austin powers quote about "hot dog fingers" is one of the most funny yet simultaneously awful things ever said by Mike Myers.

Try watching this while listening to Bill Frist drone along on This Week. It's pretty surreal.

Geez - thanks. I feel stupid, indeed. I take it all back.

kozad, retarded kids only = hilarious when paired with heart warming sentiment and feel good message, by themselves i just feel cruel.

A dollar? That's worth ten, easy. And if that guy is not getting all the ass he wants, there's no justice in the midget world.
posted by booksandlibretti at 6:43 PM on March 19, 2006

Not that anyone cares, but I can moonwalk. I taught myself in front of a mirror when I was a kid. It's one of those things, like juggling or bike-riding, that you never forget.

jayder: If you could only teach yourself to be a midget, then maybe you'd deserve a Metafilter FPP. Then you could die in peace.

Oh that midget gets more ass than a toilet seat, you know it.

I don't care what anyone says, I don't think Michael Jackson is really dead. Some say little middle east midgets report sightings.
posted by BillyElmore at 7:09 PM on March 19, 2006

There's a guy works down the chip shop swears he's Michael Jackson.

was that in the NYC subway? the tiles in the background make me think that, but, I wonder...
posted by ParisParamus at 7:15 PM on March 19, 2006

The tiles, and the text on the side that says "Shot at Grand Central Station in NYC."

Why would I want to beat a midget?

HEY ow my fuckin' knee! Why, you little...

What was really sad was how he kept on grabbing his belly because his little arms weren't long enough to reach his crotch.
posted by PeterMcDermott at 11:55 PM on March 19, 2006

Your arms are too short to box with God grab your crotch.

In seven simple words, AdQ has summed up my entire (almost five years now!) MeFi experience. That’s a tag line if I’ve ever heard one.

I don't know about the midget, but — as always — madam jjj is a class act.

p.s. Speaking of real class (and where this clip really belongs), why hasn't the Blort/Meepzorp front page changed since mid-December?

I love this clip. Thanks for the link Madam. I don't know how I have missed this guy in my subway travels.

This is what I love about NYC. You get entertainment in the subways in all forms. I'm growing fond of the dude who plays the guitar and has pedals that do the drum and cymbals etc. (but he's a little loud, I must say). And a woman named Susan Cagle (I bought her CD) from the subway performances was at SXSW this year. And then there's entertainment on the train it self too. Singing, great stories as an enticement to give a panhandler money (I'm seeling these M&M's to stay off the street and out of trouble...), and the occasional unruly salesman who's pissed because nobody's buying his CD which could be blank for all we know.

What more could you ask for? Sit back and enjoy the free show. Two thumbs up, dude. Bille Jean, she's not my lover..... :>

You know another thing that's funnier when dwarves do it? Dissing!

[Willie has just passed out]
Gin: Look here, get himy outta here and I'll go smooth things over with Chipeska, Tell him it was food poisoning or something.
Marcus: What do you mean, get him outta here?
Gin: Take him to the car.
Marcus: In case you didn't notice I'm a motherfucking dwarf, so unless you got a forklift handy, maybe you should lend a hand hmm?
Gin: That figures. You want all kind of set-asides. Special treatment 'cause your handicapped. You're all the same.
Marcus: Special treatment? I'm 3-foot-fucking-tall you asshole! It's a matter of physics. Draw me a sketch of how I get him to the car, huh?
Gin: Bitch, Bitch, Bitch!
Marcus: Sketch it up, you fucking moron. Fucking Leonardo da Vinci.
Gin: What'd you call me thigh-high?
Marcus: I called you a fucking guinea homo from the 15th-fucking-century, you dickhead!
Gin: I could stick you up my ass, small fry.
Marcus: Yeah? You sure it ain't too sore from last night?
Gin: You got some lip on you midget.
Marcus: yeah? Well these lips were on your wife's pussy last night. Why don't you dust that thing off once in a while? Asshole!

Beat it! (Real audio)

Correction, kozad:

fat woman people = hilarious

Seems to me that "there ought to be a way" for us netizens to drop a dollar into the hat of street performers caught on viral video like this.

It also seems that the first n-1 ways of doing this would end up making more money for the middlefolk than the performers themselves.
