Aye, that whole thing was pretty lame.  Was that supposed to be sarcastic?  Maybe I just don’t get it.  *shrug*

Read the production notes on for background.  The who thing is a parody of the beginning of a Balmer presentation.  I downloaded the original Balmer video, and played it several times today for a laugh break.

For those who may not have witnessed the orginal absurdity that started it all, see it here if you dare.  Surgeon Generals’ Warning:  It will scar you for life.
