1) Allan Herrrmerrn’s School of French Kissing for Dogs from the Midnight Show-not for the faint of gut.
2) Kurt Braunohler’s World Wild of Animals: Killer Whales-Yes, it’s another hilarious video about animals, but only because it’s educational in the way animal videos should be. Also, if you’re on Tumblr, follow kbwwa.tumblr.com for all past and future episodes.
Provenza: And the true irony is, I have a friend who does a lot of business in Japan, and he said you go into any bar or nightclub in Japan, and everybody is making tsunami jokes. You deal with it! But Gilbert’s the bad guy. So what, is it timing? Well, whose timing?
