Video Clips: Fun Timewasters

By Rick Morris

From time to time, we try to accommodate our Lounge content consumers who just want some fun, light entertainment. Hence this edition of our Video Clips series, entitled "Fun Timewasters."

These are simply some video clips that you can enjoy and consume in the form of good, mindless entertainment. On with the show!

A tribute to one of the world’s great sporting events, the Monte Carlo Grand Prix on the Formula One circuit. Check out the video to see some glimpses of the past and present on one of the most visually spectacular backdrops you’ll ever witness – oh, and there’s some bitchin’ crashes in there.

An infamous clip: Carl Monday, ace investigative reporter from my hometown, “exposing” a perv using a library computer to watch porn and shove his hand down his drawers with young kids nearby:

Ohio State fans taking excessive joy in the Michigan choke to Appalachian State. SHOCKING!

Why, he’s an adorable young tyke who loves spewing opinions on pro wrestling. He knows it all: just ask him! Here’s some of his greatest hits:

NBC News is now making their videos available for embedding on blogs. The first one that we will feature is their tribute to William F. Buckley, Jr.

Here’s a goofy fun little cartoon from 1969: it’s the opening to the animated program “The Archies” with the toe-tapping ditty “Sugar, Sugar.”
