Me in the men's room at Jujube.

Yellow lamp, red walls, phone came gets exactly this image without adulteration.

Speaking of "redrum" have you seen the Angry Alien's The Shining in 30 Seconds (and re-enacted by bunnies)?

Oh you should, you should. WARNING - opens with a sound.

Oh my! That was a perfect 30 second bunny version! It actually scared me.

No, but I've seen The Shining re-cut as a comedy.

The last time I went to visit my parents, we had a grand old time watching bunny movie after bunny movie. I finally signed up to get the updates - last week was Die Hard, but I have completely forgotten the plot, which makes it less funny. I LOVED the Borat bunny movie.

Phil, I think we need more shots of you hanging around men's restrooms. :)

Toastie -- are you talking about the Simpsons episode? :-) I suspect you're talking about something else. But the Simpsons episode take off on the Shining: masterful.

Pinky -- man, your parents are so much cooler than mine. I think I remember enough of Die Hard to laugh at the bunnies. I refuse to see Borat (the movie) but feel like the rabbit flick will make up for it. Kind of like when I saw the final episode of Seinfeld (with all the highlights) having not seen any of the series. Difference being, I turned into a complete Seinfeld fan after that.

Joe -- your wish is my command.

"I refuse to see Borat (the movie) but feel like the rabbit flick will make up for it."

Why? (refusing to see Borat, i mean?) One of the funniest movies ever made.

Barry -- as I understand it, the movie is frickin' hilarious, and for that I'd love to watch. But also as I understand it, a lot of the humor relies on Cohen playing one big practical joke on a bunch of people who never gave him "permission" (as friends sometimes ddo with each other).

My aversion to practical jokes is that somewhere in the process, someone's getting having their brains and/or emotions jerked around, and I just don't like people getting treated that way. It's different, of course, where something in the relationship has made it implicitly or explicitly OK -- where both parties have agreed to play the game.

Also re: the movie, I understand that a lot of the humor is incredibly non-PC. That's something I would love to see, also, as long as I thought that the humor was delivered by someone who actually had good will for the people made fun of. (I have no idea how Cohen comes down on that count.)

Phil: that was my exact response on seeing it. (With my mother. Who suggested we go see it.)

It jerked people around. You know the strength of my emotions, and that movie really messed with people.
