My favourite YouTube videos of 2011

I had a couple posts with more substance lined up, but they’re not ready.  So, for the sake of publishing a post for December here are some of the videos I enjoyed enough during 2011 to bookmark. More »

Someone stole my hot water

That is, literally, physically stole it.

Where I assume the bits responsible for making the water hot once resided—but then I really have no idea.

Woke up this morning with no hot water, went to work without having showered, came home on my break to sort out what I thought must be a billing problem, and after several calls ended up speaking to the body corporate.

Who would do such a thing and why completely eludes me, but there you have it.

Why so pensive?

It greatly amuses me that someone thought this to be a good shot for an album cover.  Should it?
