The Dangers of Supercool


Upright Citizens Brigade: Supercool Brownies

Have you talked to your children about the dangers of Supercool? Just one wand of this nightmarish drug can result in the kind of bizarre, unhinged behavior seen in the above video. It even ruined the career of pop superstars The Titte Brothers.

Upright Citizens Brigade: Cyborg Training

Luckily, there IS help. As you can see in the above video, our government is training cyborg detectives to "sniff out" supercool in our schools and places of business.

Eternal vigilance, however, is required. A good first step? Check out the Upright Citizens Brigade Season 2 on DVD. You'll be glad you did.

Have Netflix? Watch A Thousand Clowns


My favorite movie (well, one of my three favorite movies), "A Thousand Clowns," has been out of print since the early 90s. It never came out on DVD.

HOWEVER, astute Max Funster Carol noticed that for some reason, it IS available on Netflix "Instant Viewing."

So, if you have Netflix and a PC, you can watch the movie by clicking here, then clicking on "Play." I urge you to do so.

What's your dad like?

Elephant Larry: TriDad


This is one of my favorite super-structure-dependent comedy sketches ever. Watch as it bends, folds, turns in on itself and never breaks. They even have a capper!
