Funny Video of the Day, Esp. if You Hate Europeans

By Debbie Schlussel
This one is a certifiable ROFLMAO video. The one person in Europe with the good sense to hate soccer goes to bars with his remote and turns off soccer matches in the middle of the games, to the outrage of drunken, smelly, European soccer fans. Will definitely cheer you up:

This guy is BRILLIANT! Now, if we could only zap “soccer moms” as easily.

Thanks for that fun video! And,posting it in the heart of high school football (that’s FOOTBALL, played by manly men in pads and helmets; not FUTBOL played by lawn fairies in silky shorts) state championship playoffs was perfect timing!

He needs to mount those remotes, pointing forward, in some funky looking hat with the switch in a wristwatch, so that he can just reach up and zap the programs without having to run away.
If the crowds ever got hold of him….

That’s some funny shit. He’s a genius.

If you missed an hour of the game, no one would know. Soccer is as exciting as watching paint dry. If he wants I’ll teach him how to get into the service menus or put the set in parental control.

“manly men in PADS AND HELMETS.” That’s rich.

Yeah, if yanks were such manly men as you people claim, how come they need pads and helmets?
The reason the people get upset is that soccer MATTERS. Six Billion people follow soccer and think that it is important. 250 million Americans don’t.
So what? Who cares? Who needs them?

Maybe if the six billion people who follow soccer paid more attention to the problems in their countries, they wouldn’t depend on us to send troops and money when they need help.
I like the idea of shutting off TVs. I would like to do that at the gym. It would really be fun in the department stores where they have a wall of TVs pumping out bilge.

We don’t. For the sake of humanity stay home next time.

Debbie, as a patriotic Anglo-Canadian who is both pro-American AND pro-European (yes, you can be both!), I must say your smug anti-European, “only-American-men-are-manly men” attitude is getting very old. What’s so heroic about going into bars and turning off soccer matches? Would you call someone who went into American bars and turned off football, baseball, or NBA games a “hero”? More likely, you’d be calling for his balls on a platter. Or accusing him of being a Muslim terrorist. Which would be a moot point, because he would be reduced to a black smudge on the barroom floor in two seconds flat.
What do you Americans have against soccer; the fact that it’s played by people who aren’t American and speak in funny accents or different languages? Or the fact that most of them are far hotter and in far better shape than your average tubby overpaid baseball player?
And football is played by “real” men? Then why are they such pussies about getting injured? Watch a rugby match sometime; every bit as rough as football, if not more so, and no helmets or padding in sight. And pro-American as I am, I find baseball about as interesting to watch as paint dry. Basketball used to be an exciting sport, back when real, non-genetically engineered human beings, and real athletes as opposed to self-absorbed celebrities, played it. I’ve had impulses to switch of all three of these overrated games in bars, but if I were inclined to seek heroism via YouTube I would do so through other actions; ones that actually benefitted humanity.
