Hilarious! I'll never be able to watch True Blood in quite the same way again.

Sadly, most of the people who should watch this probably won't.

They work so well together, and I'm delighted to see them branching out.

I too think they should have a TV series.

Wait, what? Took me a while to realize everyone in that video was an actor xD. With the news coming from the west side of the pacific the last few years not much surprises me anymore.

Brilliant! There are just some things that become oh so clear when you turn them inside-out, like a pocket.

I agree, I enjoyed the humorous approach to sexual 'choice', especially Shermer's cameo. Did anyone else notice the subtle stroking of the baseball bat by Conner Price at 05m27s? Hilarious.

Brilliant! But it would be easier to follow for a non-native if there were subtitles.

Quite frankly I find the question disgusting!

Now that was an interesting twist on the delusional conversion therapy nonsense!

Sometimes Mr Deity is a bit flat, but this one was spot on.

Mr. Deity's grin at the end of each rationalization is perfectly creepy. Oh, and "Kelly" reminded me of Sarah Palin (sorry Kelly).

Ok, hilarious! The boys are BACK.

And, I'm just sayin, as a monosexual female...Jessie is HOT! If I had been in Michael Shermer's place I would have totally hit on him, too. Good try Michael, maybe next time!

Reminds me of Douglas Hofstadter's "A Person Paper on Purity in Language," where he shows up the ridiculousness of sexist language by imagining a parallel universe in which English pronouns aren't gender specific, but race specific: A Person Paper on Purity in Language, by Douglas R. Hofstadter (alias William Satire)

Bring back Chris Morris and Brass Eye, when he did his show in 2001* the next day people actually went out and beat up pediatricians instead of paedophiles because that's how ignorant people were of these issues then, programs like Brass Eye and more recently South Park raise much needed awareness and don't really get recognized enough for it. Informative and piss funny at the same time, apart from smashing up innocent pediatricians businesses, that's not funny, for the most part, ok then its a little bit funny.

  • I thought it was earlier personally? and as far as I know all celebrities were completely unaware of the nature of the program, which had me literally helplessly rolling about on the floor laughing back then, like Keith Chegwin iirc exclaiming that paedophiles have genetically more in common with crabs than they do with you or I, and that there's no actual evidence for this, but it's scientific fact =) classic

    I must say, it's an improvement. I'm glad they've stopped the constant begging, though. It only makes them look pathetic and implies they aren't really talented.
