China’s Andy Rooney Has Some Funny Opinions About How Great The Chinese Government Is

I wonder how much it costs The Onion to put together these videos, because I certainly haven’t seen any news parodies with this professional quality on either TV or internet. Hell, most news stations don’t look this professional.

    Soup is funny. It’s not really a meal, nor is it a first course – because it’s mostly made of water. I find soup to be the most watery of foods.

  2. Terry_Jim says:

    Didja ever wonder why they call it soup?
    That’s kind of a funny name.

  3. MarkoMancuso says:

    On the whole, I don’t really trust soup, no more than I trust stew.

  4. Terry_Jim says:

    Didja ever wonder where you left your teeth?

    You really appreciate soup then.

    When you find your teeth, you can eat something solid
    like pie, or cantaloupe.

  5. MarkoMancuso says:

    I don’t understand pie – apple pie, in particular. Why would you cover perfectly good apples with dough and cook them? That’s disgusting. If I wanted warm and mushy apples, I’d leave a bushel to rot in the sun.

  6. TerribleTroy says:

    Pie ? I love PIE! Im not so fond of soup but I LOVE PIE.. I mean I have a deep emotional attachment to PIE. A day without PIE is a day without sunshine .. otherwise known as a cloudy day… but I love PIE. I dont know any real man that doesnt LOVE PIE. I have heard of some girly men that dont love PIE.. hell its reported that they dont even LIKE Pie… but I think those guys are “funny”. …. What were we talking about again?

    I will not hear stew disparaged!! I will not stand for it! Do you hear me!? The line must be drawn here! No further!
    Now when a guy tells me he likes soup, I just assume he’s the type that breaks in his wife’s new underwear for her,
    but stew is an entire self-contained MRE! Stew is a working man’s lunch! What do you eat for lunch nancy boy? PB&J? Can you
    fit that in the thermos? Didn’t think so! If you can’t put it in a thermos, it’s not worth eating.

    Now as far as pie is concerned – hell yeah.

    Mmmmm… pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving this weekend folks – break out the stretch pants!

  8. MarkoMancuso says:

    I don’t understand the concept behind underwear. Why do we wear underwear? Aren’t pants enough?

    By the way, since you asked, I don’t eat lunch. Lunch is another example of the many things that baffle me. Why do we eat lunch? Is a large breakfast not enough to fill us over? I don’t know of any animals that eat lunch. In fact, I think we could learn a thing or two from animals. Namely, animals don’t have a set time to eat meals. They eat when they can. Why don’t we do that? Do we eat lunch so the animals won’t laugh at us for being like them? I think humans should stop being afraid of looking like animals.

    I was extremely surprised to not see the “Obama Win Causes Obsessive Supporters To Realize How Empty Their Lives Are” video reposted here.

  10. Scooter says:

    the onion does a much better job of keeping it a news parady rather than just a bunch of liberals spinning the news like the daily show.

  11. Krig the Viking says:

    I love the subtle subversiveness right at the end. Awesome.

  12. seanmahair says:

    The Obsessive video has been pulled apparently. It was here this morning when I first logged on but I hit the comments section and poof it’s gone. Somewhat like our money under “George III”. (you know George H. R, George W, Curious George.

    Yes I know, that’s racist. No matter what I say about him as long as it’s not fawning, sycophantic, unfettered praise it will be racist.

    Being a student of history I can’t help but remember what happened the last time we had a “Ruler” called George III. Ah…….the remaking of the wheel. There is nothing more constant, not even change (or hope or chope or hange)

  13. kansasfarmboy says:

    It was just there, but if you can’t find it look for the Annual California Wildfire story.

  14. kansasfarmboy says:

    mmm soup. And don’t knock the quiet comfort of nice silky thong until you’ve tried it.

  15. DesertElephant says:

    Scooter, That was a damned funny video. Thank you for that. It made my morning.

  16. Kent says:

    I downloaded the Obsessive Obama Supporters one from the iTunes Podcast. It is a scream and a half, considering they are pretty hard on the right as well.

    As for the China video, I guess the Fairness Doctrine is at work there, as well.

    As for the production values, there was a company about 10 years ago (I think) that made an Amiga-based box that did everything like that. It was called NewTek Video Toaster. At any rate, a basement setup with a green screen, green-screen desk or real desk, and a used one of eBay or regular Premiere or Apple software probably wouldn’t be that difficult if you had the skill set for it. Since their videos are SD, they could have picked up some pro equipment when a local TV station went HD. It also wouldn’t be a big deal for them to make some deal with a college communications department to share equipment.

    At any rate, if you are considering an IMAO video cast like this, there are toys to be had. Even doing a 780P HD version is getting to be an afterthought with most PCs these days, at least with such short videos. The longest I’ve seen is 4:20, and most are 2-3 minutes.

  17. Shipoopi says:

    Why do we need HD? Isn’t regular “D” enough? I mean how many pixels do you really need on a screen anyway?

    “Pixels” — now there’s a funny word. Sounds like it has something to do with fairies, doesn’t it? It’s amazing that we live in an age of amazing technology and we still talk like tiny fantasy beings allow us to see pictures on our screens. Or maybe it’s a conmbination of “pictures” and “dimples” – like on a golf ball. That wouldn’t work though, because “dimples” isn’t spelled that way.

    It’s amazing what kind of things you think of when your entire occupation is coming up with moderately humourous observations about life. Where do these thoughts come from? I like to think they come from pixies visiting my brain in the night. I think there are approximately seven hundred and eighty of them.

    A waste of fine talent and effort. Andy Looney is a parady of himself.
