Let’s Go Parachutin’ On Tuesday

Still makes more sense than “999”

You know, I went skydiving exactly once. It was a routine, half-mile-up, static cord jump — but instead of achieving the prescribed face-down “X” position, my body rolled and my chute wrapped around my legs, with just a thin streamer of canopy flapping around between my feet.

I remember being on my back, watching the nylon flutter as the plane sailed away above me, and thinking “Crap. Now I’ll never see a Black American President.”

Then, just as I went to reach for the back-up cord, the air caught that wee sliver of nylon and unspun me like a yoyo till the chute was deployed. The rest of the drop was supremely hyper-real, but unenventful.

So, no, Herman — much as I’d like to step off a wing with you, Tuesday is already booked.

What happened to the music video post that was just below this one earlier this morning?

@Scott — Got me. HTP must have backed it into the shop for service.

Strange, what better time to consult George S. Kaufman: “I prefer Terra Firma, and the more Firma, the less Terra.”

Actually a better time might have been before you climbed into a winged aluminum cigar tube and entrusted your existence to a few ounces of material what should have gone into making disco pants.

I’ve no objection to Herman Cain’s chances free-falling, though! But dang, nobody but Mittens seems likely to last till New Hampshire.

Used to jump out of perfectly good airplanes in the Army. You know what they say, only fools and birdshit fall from the sky.

Some great lines, but I don’t think they matched the sounds to the mouth movements as well as they did with Obama and Perry.

Is this just a leetle bit racist? I felt guilty laughing in a few places. I don’t know how he really talks but it seemed they were laying on the AA accent a bit thick.

I like to set the late night music to dissolve like a pleasant dream in the morning. But since one can never have enough of the Chameleons* ...

*Seriously. It is impossible.

it seemed they were laying on the AA accent a bit thick.

Nope. It’s a dubbed voice, but Herman talks like that and isn’t ashamed to milk it.

Another hilarious BLR and one that is more quote-worthy than 9-9-9.

I think I ruptured something laughing at the Mitt version:

To be fair, Michele Bachmann sounded suspiciously like RuPaul (still the best BLR, IMO).

YAFB, not to belabor the obvious, but that wasn’t Michele?

Aw, well, shuckey-duckey as the people say.

I liked the Perry BLR.

but that wasn’t Michele?

I think they got lazy and just revoiced her own words.

I’m w/ YAFB.  The Bachmann one is my fave—although it was also my first, so there’s that.  Part of the genius of these is the background music, and the adequate effort to mimic the sonic environment of the original.

It goes without saying that the actual Cain or Bachmann could stand in front of a crowd and say exactly these Dada/lunatic things, and most of the crowd would cheer most of the time.

Part of the genius of these is the background music, and the adequate effort to mimic the sonic environment of the original.

What especially cracks me up about the Bachmann one is the voice off from the director who keeps wearily intoning “Cut” or “No” at opportune moments.

I just saw this headline at Google news: 

“Experts question wisdom of Republican candidate’s plans” 

I’m surprised wisdom didn’t mug the surrounding pixels and GTF off that screen.

What especially cracks me up about the Bachmann one is the voice off from the director who keeps wearily intoning “Cut” or “No” at opportune moments.

That was particularly choice. Adequate effort to mimic the sonic environment of the original indeed, Mr. W.
