Mitchell and Webb - Cricket



Cricket movie idea from David Mitchell and Robert Webb. I think it could work. What an underdog story! It's certainly impressive that they've managed to make cricket seem vaguely exciting. They're calling it 'The Full Number of Overs that are Scheduled to be Bowled That Day' - I'd have gone for the simpler 'Cricket!' Enjoy.

CNNNN - Stupid Americans



Ok, I'm gonna be fair here. I don't think Americans are stupid. I think many are just under informed to a frightening degree. Have you ever seen American TV? It doesn't encourage knowledge of the world outside the US. Having said all that, this clip is incredibly funny. Check out the scroll of news along the bottom of the screen.
