September 2019

This is a comedy skit for a roast of Rudy Giuliani from 2000, when Giuliani was the mayor of New York, and Donald Trump’s multi-casino bankruptcy, failed mortgage business, failed travel business, and failed steak business were still a few years in the future.

To borrow a line from Business Insider: “The skit was good for a few laughs at the turn of the 20th century. But now it reappears routinely to baffle the internet as the lives of its two protagonists take stranger and stranger turns.”


If you watch only one video today, make sure it’s this one: Veterinary Technician Training: Handling a Fractious Cat, which features a human actor playing a very unhappy kitty.

I have to give the guy credit — he sure make realistic-sounding cat noises, and he’s got CrossFit-level vaulting skills.

I challenge you not to laugh out loud during the chase scene.

And the end with the “cone of shame” is pure comedy gold.

Thanks to Boing Boing for the find!
