Best of the Santa Cruz City Council

She may not the the world’s angriest woman, but the lady in this video may very well be the biggest airhead! The rest of the characters in the last one are pretty good too. It turns out that you don’t have to live in Santa Cruz very long before you start running into these folks. What can I say… It’s a crazy place.

Don’t Swear Into Helium

Everyone likes Richard Pyle, and we all wish we had is uber sweet CIS Lunar rebreather, but I have to say this video of him down below 100M swearing like a sailer in that Donald Duck voice that you get with a larynx full of helium is pretty darn funny!

The cool thing about rebreathers is that you can talk into them, and people can understand you. Sure, if sounds like you have a mouth full of rubber (which you do), but you can still be understood. I’m guessing that these guys found a pretty serious thermocline, and the water got a great deal colder than they anticipated.

Pyle is clearly disturbed by this unfortunate turn of events, and spends quite a lot of time swearing and complaining about the cold water. I guess we can’t really blame him for not piling on the thermal protection though. He was, after all off Christmas Island in the Central Pacific Ocean. It’s only five degrease north of the equator, so the water should, in theory, be pretty warm.

Dump Truck Crash Video

Everyone loves the idea of smashing fast-moving things into hard objects, but the guys who drove this dump truck into a concrete barrier really outdid themselves. I have absolutely no idea why they did it, but I’m sure glad they did. I only wish they would have loaded the thing up with boulders first.

War On Christmas

Bill O’Reilly has been on going on like a blithering idiot for what seems like months about his imagined War On Christmas. Bill O’Reilly is, of course, insane. However, the ludicrous dribblings from his badly damaged brain have inspired some to create hugely entertaining content and blog fodder like this video.

I mentioned this video in a previous post, but it is so much better than the Drunk Santa featured in that story, I though it appropriate to give it its own plug.

Even though I’m sure criminally insane bible thumpers like Bill O’Reilly would love to see “Holidazians” murdered by wreath bombs, I think most sane individuals can agree that the season is about unity, not division.

Happy Holidays, etc.

Santa Drunk Driving

This is a little “Cops” knockoff With a drunk driving Santa. The cops decide to pull him over because of his wreckless driving and find find the trunk of his sleigh filled “snow from the north pole”. Humm… Sketchy!

The video is really pretty funny, but I have to wonder what this year’s “Village Idiot Award” winner Bill O’Reilly would have to say about it within the context of his imagined “War On Christmas”. Apparently O’Reilly thinks that anyone who is offended by someone wishing them a Merry Christmas is “insane”, but in the same breath states that HE is offended by anyone who wishes HIM a “Happy Holiday”

The verdict is in… Bill O’Reilly is insane. I’m sure he thinks this video is just another part of his bogus war on christmas.

While you’re at it, check out this video with actual footage of the “War on Christmas”. Tanks guns and Holiday Trees… Oh MY!

World’s Angriest Woman


Crazy Lady Yelling at Skaters from Cliff Pearson on Vimeo.

There are a lot of angry people in the world, but I’m pretty sure that the lady in this video ranks pretty near the top by any measure. It’s a movie of a woman in a parking lot screaming at a group of skaters for no apparent reason. Or at least no apparent reason that makes sense to any sane person.

Exactly why she is so angry is unclear, however it would seem that she is convinced that the kids are not the innocent skaters they claim to be, but rather evil photographers who come around “every couple of years” and are out to get her. She nearly blows out her vocal cords as she threatens to call 911 and demands their names, cameras, film, and calling cards.

Again, it’s hard to say why she is so furious, but it is quite clear that she:

  • REALLY REALLY hates photographers
  • REALLY likes calling cards
  • Has absolutely NO understanding of the law
  • Hates “illegal photographs”
  • Likes the name “Norma kay”
  • Is “tired of being beat up by photographers”
  • Is OK with the idea that one of the skaters is actually named Jeffery Jefferys
  • Is convinced that having been yelled at is a good reason for someone to leave

The only thing Al could say is: “she’s so unreasonable”, which I think is the understatement of the year! Zach suggests that this story should be called “Finally Someone More Angry Than Me”. For my part, all I could do was cry laughing. I do, however think that this video belongs in Zach’s “World’s Big and Tall” series under “World’s Angriest Woman”.
