Yesterday, we had "Clever Girl".
Today, I present to you these clever girls and their dance.

Grows old pretty quickly, but still, it's a cool brain confuser.

What? No juggling?

Consequently, I have no regrets in posting the following hilarious Batman (or Badman) parodies by Collegehumor.


Batman Chooses His Voice

Batman Meets the Riddler

Batman Meets Two-Face

Batman Blows His Cover

Batman Says His Goodbyes

Another Child Joins The Dark Side

A while back, we saw a young Angela Merkel girl choosing the dark side.

Now, here's footage of another girl giving an unexpected twist to a theme park routine.

Hopefully, she won't become president, prime minister or chancellor of any country in the future... (at least not one with nuclear weapons)

The Greatest Basketball Player of All Time

Was this guy. Michael Jordan.

Here's a compilation of his top 50 all time plays, so that the young can learn and the old can reminisce.

Ten years after his retirement, the NBA has still not found its footing.

Of course, from time to time he did miss. He was human after all.

We're not finished yet.
Here's one hundred and thirty more.
I suggest you... "GET TO THE CHOPPA!"
