Dude, this video is SO AWESOME. I normally can't stand footage of animals attacking and eating one another, but trust me this is worth a look. Don't worry, it has a happy ending! (For some reason, when I was watching this video it kept stopping and going back to the beginning. If this happens to you, DON'T GIVE UP! The video is over 8 minutes long. Keep your eye on the timer and make sure you see the whole clip. Basically, if you are not completely amazed, you haven't seen the whole thing.)
This has been making the internet rounds today, and.....whoa. I can't believe this actually happened. Make sure to notice Slater's (the host's) expression at the very end of the clip. He's barely keeping it together. I have transcribed the event for your enjoyment.
Q: Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?

Slater: Thank you very much, South Carolina.
I think she makes some very good points. Everyone deserves a map.
So, what I want to do is make a little series of 3-5 minute episodes about Sid. The project is called Chasing Sidney and it's a reader challenge over at my very favorite website, IPB. This whole donut hole thing got started because of IPB. I'll tell you all about the specifics of the challenge as I get closer to a finished project, but for now all I have is this little "opener" that I will put at the beginning of each episode. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
Sid, while being highly successful and attractive, is deathly afraid of women. He clams up every time he meets a pretty girl, and Crunchy is always there to witness his humiliation.
This video is super frustrating because the leading lady's head got cut off in the frames when I downloaded the pictures into imovie. I didn't have the heart to retake all of the photos, so this clip is being released in spite of its obvious technical shortcomings.
