Maybe I’m late to the game—there are hundreds of these—but last night on YouTube I discoverd the Andy Rooney Game. I must have watched 50 of them, laughing my head off. The rules are simple:
“Remove everything but the first and last sentences from Andy Rooney’s segment on 60 Minutes. Then post that onto YouTube.”
And there you have it, the meandering musings of Mr. Rooney are turned into sublime dada haiku. If you thought it wasn’t possible for Andy Rooney to sound any nuttier than he already does, guess again!
A bunch of good ones are on Robot Pirate Ninja.
