Bill O'Reilly Flips Out on YouTube.

Bill O'Reilly is an American television and radio host, author, syndicated columnist and self-described "traditionalist" political commentator. He is the host of the cable news program The O'Reilly Factor on the conservative Fox News Channel.

He has come under criticism as a reporter for distorting facts and using misleading or erroneous statistics and has had disputes with a variety of famous people, among others, George Clooney, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, David Letterman and Jessica Alba. He is not well liked.

Here he is caught off-camera freaking out because he cannot understand the teleprompter.

"Okay I don't know what that is. Whatever it is, it's not right on the teleprompter. I don't know what that is. I've never seen that. Naa! I can't read it, there's no words on it. There's no words there 'To play us out', what does that mean 'To play us out'? The studio personnel tell O'Reilly that they will be playing a Sting video to end the show. When O'Reilly attempts a shout out, he loses his cool and says that they will do it live. "We'll do it live! (expletive) I'll write it and we'll do it live! F**ing thing sucks!".
In the final frames he has regained his composure and ends the show with a smile, his nostrils still flared in annoyance.

The New York Times calls David Rees' comic strip Get Your War On a "glorious excoriation of our post-9/11 loony bin." Rees created GYWO in October 2001 as a response to the world's paranoia in the midst of the war on terror. Since then it has grown into three books (the latest is an omnibus called Get Your War On: The Definitive Account of the War on Terror, 2001-2008) and an animation series. Rees shocks with his white collar character's liberal use of the f-word, prompting BoingBoing editor Cory Doctorow to describe it as "Doonesbury with Tourette's." Says Rees of GYWO: “Ever since Thomas Friedman rejected my application to be his moustache groomer, I’ve searched for a way to serve my country — and now I’ve found it!” Look for GYWO onYouTube and on

Bubbly dolphins

For the ultimate feel-good animal video, look up "dolphin bubble rings" on YouTube and see how bottlenose dolphins create rings of trapped air underwater and then play with them. According to, the behaviour was described in an article published in the Journal of Comparative Psychology in 2000 and notes that making these bubble rings, in contrast with other bubbles blown by dolphins, requires skill and practice and is passed on to other members of the pod.  The bubbles also drift downwards, unlike normal bubbles which float towards the water's surface. Apparently the rings are formed when the dolphins blow air from their blowholes into vortices which they stir up with their dorsal fins. Because the water around the eye of the vortex is travelling at a higher speed than the water further away a low pressure zone forms and takes up the air injected into it by the dolphin. The silver halo is then moved around under the water and manipulated into various  configurations. The energy stored in the vortex keeps propelling it downwards.




According to his profile on the Thought Leader blog, blogger/vlogger Khaya Dlanga "knows nothing and shouldn't be here". But with over 10,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel and "an ego-boosting three million views" it is clear that Dlanga has something that the "internets" wants. No subject is too big or too small for the intrepid video blogger to tackle: his take on why Zuma should cede the presidency next year or an exhibition of sheer joy at having procured an iPhone in "I've got an iPhone (the musical). In "My Death Threat", khayav, his user name and the name of his YouTube channel, becomes his own executioner-to-be and in "Black Men with Small Penises" he rails against "the assumption that all black men have large members" in what he calls the "struggle for genital equality". Dlanga might someday find a way to monetise his prolific digital output, but for now one gets the sense that he does it because he loves it. In "Photo Booth. I'm so hot right now" he offers this advice: "Go on. Be silly. It's more fun than you think."

Moon landing on a golf course near you

French prankster Remi Gaillard recently got some golfers very riled up when he interrupted their game by leaping all over their green in an astronaut suit. Gaillard is first seen donning anti gravity boots which allow him to take a couple of giant leaps from his golf cart in the direction of the hole that the golfer sare putting at. He then abducts their marker and victoriously plants it, a la Armstrong, elsewhere on the course. Said golfers then give chase, swatting Gaillard with their putters.
