My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began,
So is it now I am a man,
So be it when I shall grow old
Or let me die!
- Wordsworth

Seems like more than his heart is leaping. Reminds me of the time I was working at an international bank and saw a plain jane rainbow which touched down on one side at the Federal Reserve Bank and the Wells Fargo HQ on the other. What does it mean, pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

I bow in awe and admiration to the superior twisted mind that modified that vid.

I kinda like her. She operates at a pleasantly low level of abstraction.

How did you find that video?

Low level of abstraction. You have such a way with words. It's a little painful for me. Too many relatives could step right into her body.

My cousin's husband (CIL?) sent it to me (email) via a video of the day thing on a Savannah radio station website (98.7 The River). Just one of those things that wanders around on web mailing lists for a while. I found the youtube copy so you wouldn't have to see all the radio station ads that went with it. I think there's a second half to it, but I haven't watched it yet.

That Bet Your Life woman...

She was a shy person in front of a nationwide audience. It wasn't really mean-spirited, but Cosby made her look stupider than she was. He was really unfair. For example, at 4:18:

Cosby: Now, where's the river?
Her: Which river?

That was a perfectly reasonable thing to say. Perhaps there was no river in that town. But, "which river" gets a big laugh, and Cosby puts his head in his hand, as if to say "What an IDIOT!"

Cosby: Is there an East River?
Her: I don't know.

Big laugh.

Cosby: Is there a West River?
Her: I don't even know where the river is.

Cosby laughs at her.

It seemed a little cruel to me -- they were laughing at her expense.

No question about it. But if you ever watched the original You Bet Your Life with Groucho, you'd see that Cosby was Mother Teresa in comparison.

I couldn't find the thread for the opposite of funny videos, so I guess I have to post this one here.
