if this doesn’t make you smile…

then you are a crab… this is – at least momentarily – my favorite 1:07 on teh interwebz. 

Found via Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish, The Atlantic.  Perhaps one of the most thoughtful blog/collectives i’ve stumbled upon in mainstream-esque media…

Got a few weighty things on my mind, and finding this in my reader at 6am this morning not only made me smile, but it reminded me that no matter how challenging the present moments in your life may be?  You must never underestimate the value of being goofy…

These fellas not only made me giggle, but they gave me the most horrific earworm on a day where i was hosting a very distinguished professor from MIT… and feeling just a touch unworthy…. all’s well… just needed a mental health break. 

And no, i didn’t burst into a song/dance routine during our discussions.  But i thought about it…

  1. There is something very frightening about camp men with beards, dancing and prancing. However… it did make me laugh, and by christ I needed it.

    Erm… the laughter… not the dancing and prancing.. but you knew that right?

  2. you make my dogs give me the tilted head look and try to give me kisses cause they don’t understand why mommy is laughing at nothing with those big black round thingies on her head. very very funny..
    I laughed harder when the guy says ” let me get this straight”…

  3. Thanks to anniegirl, found out that these guys were doing a riff on a scene from the TV Show “Glee”. Original can be found here.
