Enter Hitler to the AWB/Malema Circus

I wish they’d stop calling Malema, Terre’Blanche, Visagie et al “clowns” – it is a flippen insult to clowns, if you ask me.  These people are just morons, without the grace and naiveté of clowns the world over, through history and present.

What a week – from murders, Energade-spraying court stand-offs, E-TV outbursts, touching on studios, bloody bastards and agents…it truly is, as M&G put it, belly-flopping into “idiocracy”.

Thankfully, the interweb spins off its parodies, exposes such idiot behaviour, and allows us some moments of lightness in what could probably be a pretty dark and kak time for all.

Thanks to Matthew Buckland for posting this.  This Hitler parody has been around a while (I remember the version on the 2007 Super 14 final with joy), and here it resurfaces again, courtesy this time of Gus Silber, with dear old Adolf responding to the AWB calling off their machete race war.

Buckland writes:

“The original excerpt from the film is of Hitler launching into a furious tirade in his Berlin bunker upon finally realising that the war has been lost. The scene from the movie has become the staple of internet viral videos, spawning hundreds of parodies world-wide. It’s even become what is known as a “meta-meme”, because the meme itself is parodied in one of the videos. In many ways Silber’s version is particularly apt because of the similarity between the Swastika and the red and black “777″ symbol of the AWB. In fact, Hitler offers some constructive criticism of the AWB logo. Watch it and weep… with laughter.”

Laugh and weep.  About the best thing we can do right now, just before something serious needs to be done about the idiots.


Under the Mountain

So hands up – who remembers this from childhood of yore?  getting freaked out and spooked by the mud-worm-Wilberforces and cheering on the twins with their “eggs” of power?  Remember the model of the solar system and the turning of the Wilberforces into their slime variations?  Remember the guy-twin nearly fucking the whole thing up near the end?  Classic.

Not so sure it’s aged well, but still would love to see the original series just for a throwback to yesteryear.

Here’s another bit of a mash-up of various scenes…

And, missioning around the interweb, discovered that they’ve actually filmed it and released it last year.  Never quite got here, methinks, although mebbe still en route?  Or mebbe to snaffle up at a DVD shop somewhere.  Worth a tribute.  Worth a look in.  Don’tcha think?

Ah childhood.  Ah, memory.  Ah, TV…
