WKUK has a terrible name, but it's some of the best sketch comedy around. Thanks for the post, I hadn't realized the new season of the show had started.

I don't mind the name. They are, in fact, some of the whitest people I've ever seen. Not only that, but they're the most deceptively brilliant people on TV that I know of.

Also, this was a bizarre time for me to notice the new, soccer-ball-looking button on YouTube.

This comment about The State kind of encapsulates how I feel about Whitest Kids. For me, it's just icing on the cake that one of the cast members is from South Dakota and they've made some really obscure jokes about that part of the country.

The name has always seemed wrong to me.

Better than I expected, but I'd just as soon stick with the original "Mr. Show" stuff from which it draws so heavily.

My son (14) looooooves WKUK. Which immediately makes me suspect it of something, because, hey, I'm his father.

Are we thinking about the same people?

Well, this could just about be the template for every single ad by every single congressional and gubernatorial candidate in my state this year, with the exception of the omission of the most important catchphrase in any 2010 campaign ad, regardless of whether the candidate is an incumbent or not: "We've got to fix the broken system in Washington, say no to runaway spending/creeping socialism/[insert evil-du-jour here], and throw out the insiders ..... and I'm the one to do it."

One of the candidates here likes to have a camera zoom in on his cowboy boot while he spouts this line. Subtle as hell, that guy is.

Aw crap. These are the guys that did Miss March? What a crap movie. And I tend to love crap movies, but this one was just lame.

Ha! Reminded me of this.

Huh, not_on_display procreated 14 years ago. What's this thread about again? Oh yeah.

I've always thought it would kickass to run for an office as the "honest candidate."
I want this job because it pays better than the one I have now. It also probably pays better than the one you have, which is why I need your vote!1 It also has better healthcare than either of our jobs. I'm lazy, which works out well for us, since I'll just do whatever you tell me to do. Seriously, I'm not going to read those bills. I'm not even going to have an opinion. You tell me how to vote and consider it done! If I don't keep up my end, don't vote me back in! No, I won't have affairs in office. My girlfriend would kick my ass if I did! But in the off chance that I do decide to risk this ass kicking (I won't), I can assure you I won't be answering questions about it, since honestly, it's none of your fucking business. You put me in office to vote how you want me to vote. I promise to do this. I'll be your soulless puppet, since I like the idea of the raise and better benefits. Let's just agree to disagree when it comes to what I may or may not (but won't) do with my penis (you have your puppet, I have mine!). Also, I promise to take no money from special interest groups unless this is the only way to beat my drug using, homophobic, male-prostitute-paying,2 dishonest, disingenuous, unpatriotic, and terrorist loving opponent!

Vote Christopher L. Jorgensen for Congress!

Paid for by the "not_on_display for Christopher L. Jorgensen for Congress Committee."
1. Dude, if the situation were reversed I would so totally vote for you!
2. Full disclosure: We have no problem with women visiting male prostitutes (unless you do), or even men visiting male prostitutes (unless you do), but anti-gay men that sleep with other men chap our chaps! We hate hypocrites and promise not to be one.

cjorgensen, you should definitely watch the This American Life episode about this guy.

Watch this spoof and figure out exactly when you realized you have no power.

What's the point of putting the suit on if you aren't going to commit on the hair? What politician would do a campaign commercial with messy hair?
