the best of mr. show

I don't have an issue with any of the sketches listed in Splitsider's "24 Best 'Mr. Show' Sketches", just the order (I don't really get why The Story of Everest is so revered) and some glaring omissions. Of what's listed there, Taint, Larry Kleist and Fairsley's are my favorites. But look at the comedy gold that was left off!

Three Times One Minus One

Civil War vs. Ren Faire vs Star Trek

East Coast Vs. West Coast Ventriloquists

Rap: The Musical

The Burgandy Loaf

Josh Fenderman (ok, only me and Avery will appreciate this)

Indomitable Spirit

Guitar Lesson

Show Me Your Weenis

Good News (timely, with Exodus International closing shop)

...and the all time greatest Mr. Show sketch, Titannica.


oh, the hunannity

This isn't outrageous to me, because I know Hannity is a hypocritical bullshit artist. It isn't outrageous to you, because you know Hannity is a hypocritical bullshit artist. What I don't understand is how Hannity followers don't see what you and I clearly see. The cognitive dissonance astounds.
