Re: One skin, two skin, three skin, four....
Oh yeah, that absolutely cracked me up when I saw it. For those of you who don't know, Rainbow was a children's program with these muppet-type creatures. Anyway, that script is from one of the pilot episodes that was never broadcast. You can find the video of it at various places, just google for "Rainbow pilot episode"

WOO! New Daily Show Sig!
Just testing out my new sig. Which do you think is funnier, the old on or this one.

Old One:

By the way, for a fun second-term drinking game, chug a beer every time you hear the phrase, "...contentious but futile protest vote by democrats." By the time Jeb Bush is elected president you will be so wasted you wont even notice the war in Syria.
--Jon Stewart

New One:


FOX has a prety good system they have cooked up. 10 mil people watch the show on the network, FOX. Then 5 mil, different people, tune into FOX News to get outraged by it. I just hope that those good, God fearing people at FOX continue to battle those morally bankrupt people at FOX.
-- Lewis Black, The Daily Show

cross product
For the math types out there:

Q. What do you get when you cross a tsetse fly with a mountain climber?

A. Nothing, you can't cross a vector with a scalar.

Re: Could someone please tell me how many people are in the picture?
Here's my analysis:

There are twelve people in the picture. It's cut into two halves, top and bottom, effectively cutting each of the men into two (unequal) pieces. By shifting the top pieces, the illusion is created that all of the pieces are recombined.

But that isn't the case. The leftmost man never gets a replacement for his scalp and the third man from the right parts with his soles, and ends up somewhere in the middle, still without soles. Because two men out of twelve are not recombined, you end up with eleven men and two pieces. These pieces are large enough to be mistaken for complete men, but they are not.

Re: One skin, two skin, three skin, four....
That's an urban myth - it's an episode the staff put together for their christmas party.

Still funny however :-)

Here's my analysis

Thank you. I would have spent my day going, "wait... hang on. There were... no wait, damn it, it's moving again. And there's... no, damn it, that can't be right..."

You're welcome Dan. As a return favour, I would like to borrow your megaphone every once in a while.
