Backstory: My son Simon is two and a half years old...and he's definitely going through his "Thomas The Tank Engine" phase. Earlier today, he's playing with his toys and, for some reason, my brain reminded me of a song from my K-Tel-inspired childhood...so I sang "I'm a train, I'm a chugga-train yeah" to my boy. My son thought that was funny. So, I went looking for the original version of "I'm a Train" by Albert Hammond. I watched it...my son was amused. After the original video ended, YouTube suggested that I watch the clip I've posted above... And I laughed and laughed.
Bonus point: To me, this is made all the funnier by my thinking that one of the King's Singers looks just like "A Clockwork Orange"-era Malcolm McDowell.

We'll just take the fact that this was too long and that you didn't read it...as read.
In the spirit of the thread, I hate myself for having laughed at this
That's actually R.L. Stein.
That reminds me, i was doing a sketch onstage a while ago where my character had a diabetes. At one point my girlfriend (and sketch partner) flubbed a line and said she was sorry to hear that I had diarrhea. I fucking lost it and starting laughing- She responded by saying it more and more, and obviously I kept laughing.
But yeah, the idea that someone would publicly console another about their diarrhea is way too funny to me.
So stupid. Can't stop laughing.
I crapped my pants in the first grade and I have no traumatic memories of it. I just went to the nurse's office and had her call my mom to come pick me up. Nobody in my class ever caught on. That's when I knew I had what it takes to be a success in life!
(But that teacher is a jerk.)
Bao, before you return with your clever response: Dude, I just wanted to type "poopoo variants" so save it.
Combining threads here. From Jack McCallum's SI story on the end of the New Jersey Nets:
From now on, "whack a stoolie" is my go-to term for taking a shit. Added unintentional humor comes from the fact that James Gandolfini looks like exactly the kind of guy who would take a 40-minute shit at halftime of an NBA game. Or during his daughter's college campus visit.I remember being excited one night at the Meadowlands because my press-table seat was right in front of Tony Soprano, aka James Gandolfini. (I kept wondering if Tony was going to dart out at halftime, whack a stoolie, as he did during Meadow's college trip, and still get back in time for the fourth quarter.)

I'm hearing through the internet that the frog was actually nailed to the dock. I need to confirm this before I decide how I feel about this.
What was the best concert you've been to?
"Probably Sade. It was just so sexy and relaxing."
I hope that isn't the situation but if it is he seems to be taking it pretty well
