Cracking under the pressure

I have absolutely no earthly idea why, but this short video from Australia strikes me as one of the funniest things I've ever seen. The first time I watched it I laughed until I cried, and then I watched it again and laughed until I cried even harder.

It's entirely possible it isn't all that funny to anybody but me and I might be cracking under the pressure of...work, mental illness, global warming, whatever.

Most likely, it strikes me as so funny because it looks like something my brothers would do to each other, or they would have done to my nephew Kevin before Kevin bulked up like a WWF wrestler and became a PoPo (at which point the chances of Kevin being the victim of their practical jokes fell like a rock).

Anyway, watch it. And please tell me you think it's funny. I need some reassurance that I'm not losing it.


  1. Aunt Susan I once saw my wife beaten half to death playing this game with a group of teenagers. She even continued after it was obvious something treacherous was occuring.

  2. Ha! Wish I'd seen that. I could just picture Roger and Bradley doing this to Kevin, or maybe Matt.
