You know when you watch a video and the characters are so much like you that you assume the director must be spying on you from your bushes? Exactly. This video is exactly like me and Victor if we were both Victorian Englishmen who were surrounded by camera equipment for some reason. I’ll let you guess which one I am. Hint: I’m the one who isn’t an asshole.

I would watch the video, but moving pictures are the creation of the devil.

Yeah, I’ll be using that for my comebacks from now on.

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER LMAO
the British accent really added a punch to it too…LOVED it
somehow, i’m not sure what i ate, but i farted for the entire duration of this video. i’m not going to try again out of fear of shitting in my girlfriend’s panties. oh, you’ve probably guessed by now that i’m wearing her panties.

i’m so dyslexic that i thought it said “can the Pope levitate” and i didn’t really wanna watch it because i was afraid it would be a religious argument.
turns out i can’t read well, but can still enjoy comedy.
so, um, thanks for the chuckle and the glimpse into your life with Victor.
That video is awesome. I want them to make it into a movie.

So, you must be that old guy pushing the equipment in the beginning, right?
Thought so, cause there both assholes. It’s a proven fact only assholes use the word “twat”, like Brian from Queer as Folk with his whole “I’d rather have my tongue glued to a lesbians twat”…see, total asshole.
And then the other guys all “I won’t be horrible, ask me the question”, like when my ex-girlfriend was all, “No, really, it’s okay if you look at that totally gorgeous girl over there because I know you’re going home with me” and then I looked because I didn’t see some totally gorgeous girl, and then she dumped the container of macaroni and cheese on my head at Golden Coral.
.-= Uriah´s last blog ..In case you wondered why I’m insane =-.
Has Victor ever *tried* to levitate? Maybe the powers of his mind just aren’t strong enough to make it happen. What about “light as a feather, stiff as a board”? That is *so* a form of levitation…yes, levitation comes in different forms.
My new years resolution is to call people “twat” more often.
.-= Imnotbenny´s last blog ..How I explain things to people, and why they never understand what he hell I am talking about. =-.
TWAT = An acronym for “The Woman’s Awesome Thing”
Be sure to remind Victor of this meaning if he ever calls you a TWAT.
I love Mitchell and Webb and now linking them to you I will now picture both of them every time you write about a discussion you and Victor have. I’m hoping eventually the two of you will role play the Rude Vicar sketch, be the billiards commentators and/or Helivets.
Ahhh. I love British accents. Someone could say, “Make me a turkey pot pie, bitch!” in a British accent and I would be all like, “Okay, lovely thought, that” and make myself a gin and tonic while the oven preheats.

.-= LB @Wait, She Said What?´s last blog ..Twister should stick to being a game and not a condom. =-.
I’d just like to point out that they’re not Victorian, merely English. I do concede that those are nearly the same thing sometimes, though.
(They are DRESSED as Victorians, but that’s ’cause they’re taking a break during filming, y’see…)
I don’t think you’d stomp off like that, isn’t it Victor who always leaves the room?
Hah! — I see the level of self-confidence that is willing to appear stupid and RAISE you the level of self-confidence to appear crazy!
For real — I have been able to levitate since July 1978 when I learned the TM-Sidhi program, which includes yogic flying, aka levitation. You kind of win because the stages are as follows: sitting there, hopping, floating (staying up for several seconds or longer) and then actual flying.
Hopping CAN look like jumping except that the debunking is usually done by pitting twenty-something athletes sitting in full lotus position against non-athletes of a variety of ages sitting in full lotus who can rise much higher and travel much farther forward with little or no exertion in comparison to the non-sidha athletes.
On the course where I learned yogic flying, one of the women was in her 60’s and couldn’t bend her knees comfortably. I saw her lift up several inches and fly forward in hops of two or three feet per hop. I would LOVE to see any athlete hop with their legs straight out in front of them.
EEG studies show the moment of lift-off correlates with complete synchrony of brainwaves between the brain hemispheres. It is a blissful experience. The purpose of doing it is that the brain functions more coherently afterwards and becomes more and more habituated to staying coherent. Also, more and more of the bliss stays with you in your daily activities.

Holy shit, I’m crying from laughing so hard because that shit is totally TRUE!! You CAN levitate, especially when launching at a sale rack for the last pair of Prada boots on sale in your size on sale at 75% off. Trust me, I know.
It doesn’t surprise me that you like the Mitchell and Webb show. Their third season was undoubtedly the best. If you’re interested, here’s Robert Webb dancing in a leotard (and why wouldn’t you be interested?): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Lz6k5Zg2wA

It’s a fashion industry secret that everyone can levitate but they have to be wearing a cape, like Superman. Everyone would fly, it’s just the fear of looking silly while doing it that keeps them grounded. I think flying capes put the “ion” in “fashion” myself.

YES we can levitate damn it! My kids tell me I “levitate and spin” whilst sleeping.

i can only assume that victorian englishmen havent heard about david blaine. like they dont have tv then during those times. or maybe they have but like with no remote. levitating could sure come in handy when changing the channel. oh and by the way, i so totally didnt get the 12 minutes you twat/twit thing. is that a victorian englishmen thing? or gay couple thing?

Uh oh. I think I might be the chippy little autodidact of my relationship. Once, during some sort of “All About the Brady Bunch” show (yes, we watched it, shut up), Lee turned to me and said, “You know, for that era, they really did have a nice house.” He totally thought that was a real house, and not a set. I still make fun of him for it.
On the other hand, I also have the intellectual confidence to appear stupid sometimes, so I’m pretty sure they cancel each other out.
