So Wrong

As anyone who comes here regularly knows, I have this sick obsession with Youtube. I'm not sure what it is that makes it feel "ok" to spend hours trolling through people's stupid videos, but every once in a while, I find a gem.

Meet my latest ...

And before any of you get all uppity with me about how I could show something that pokes fun at the disabled, take a breath first.

This is an ongoing web series, and the lead kid, Ponce, is actually a young man with Down's Syndrome who is trying hard to make it as an actor in Hollywood. He's a funny guy who loves to make people laugh, and has no problem making himself the butt of a joke.

And his work is starting to get recognized. Ponce just got a gig on his first indie film, ""American Cowslip" starring Peter Falk, Rip Torn, Cloris Leachman, Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd!".

So my hat's off to him. I think he's pretty damn funny.....
