The Internet: ‘Tis A Silly Place

Once upon a time, a genius named ricepirate made an epic flash based on a voice track of a review of a flash RPG...in other words, folding the very fabric of the internet in upon itself and spinning it into pure gold. At long last, the video has made its way onto YouTube, where it’s been entertaining us all day. Time to turn up your speakers:

One day, when our grandkids ask what the internet was like in the olden days, we are going to make them watch the hell out of this.

Can I buy this? I know it's free...and on YouTube...and free, but I feel like someone deserves some money here. I seriously had to bite my lip not to laugh.

It almost worked.

That just happened!

Future civilizations will be able to study this flash and it will help them to better understand us as a whole. It could be like a Rosetta stone for them. I for one am proud to be a part of this dubious moment in future history.

This FTW!

Oh Tor, I'm just sitting in the library at school and decide to indulge myself in a Monty Python reference... que the funny looks when I almost fall off my chair from laughter as tears course down my face. Full five minute recovery. Oh man.

Caught this BoingBoing last night. They have a link to the actual game being reviewed. When you see the game, it adds a whole new dimension to the "review".

Here's the link to Super PSTW* RPG

You're right. That "game" is every bit as idiotic in it's own way as the "review".
