Wanna be a leader?

Someone has to pick up the flag a lead the fight. It could be you!!



My favorite part is the surrender at about 1:19.

Surrender or fight on?

Statue of Liability

Continuing the theme of animatronic national monuments...



ABBA warning!! (Fernando)

Also, no one was injured in the production of this video.

Watch for the stomping at about thirty seconds -- my favorite part!!

Vote for the next monument? (I'm afraid to ask, but won't reveal what I think will be proposed.)
