Only recently, while trolling youtube for amusing clips of people getting hit in the groin with things (seriously, a ball hits your balls....how is that not classic?), I came across this clip:

Oddly enough, this is exactly like an acid trip I took when I was 14, except substitute "Wizard" for "Paul Lynde" and "Fish" for "More Acid".

Finally, this animated craptacular ended with this:

I'm sorry, did those lyrics just say: "Softness in his eyes, Iron in his thighs"? Did I just hear that?

God, it's amazing I turned out at all well-adjusted. Let's cleanse our pallets with the following:
