I’ve been scouring YouTube for nearly a week now with only a few nibbles. I think the trolls are picking up on my Google+ account scent. I realized just yesterday that the reason I haven’t had any luck yet probably has to do with the fact that I have a gigantic billboard on my Google homepage that reads: Continue reading

I can’t think of a better way to kick off the New Year than with a stunt that will probably go down as one of the funniest real life antics ever performed here.
