  1. Pretzel Logic says:

    Did someone make this up? Or is this really Charles?

    • Bunk X says:

      I got brainporked by the dickishness also. It was believable.

    • ElSuerte says:

      Sometimes it helps if there is some daylight between parody and reality.

      Chuck is no stranger to those kind of paranoid semiotics posts.

  2. DEZ says:

    Charles is starting to look more like Jabba the Hutt than Hitler.

  3. Grand Junctionite says:

    You know it’s true Dark Falcon. The denial will only drive you further down into the abiss of insanity.

  4. Pretzel Logic says:

    Banshee asked me to tell you… it’s “abyss” not “abiss.”

  5. beed says:

    Well done!

  6. ElSuerte says:

    I think this might be the best one yet. Both in apt dialogue and matching it to the clip. Also, kudos for using something else besides that one scene everyone uses.

    I loooved the Dark Falcon bit. It’s funny because it rings true.

  7. Macker says:

    How in the world are these parodies made? I want to try to make one!

    • Bunk X says:

      First, find a guitar player with a pony tail and convince him to start a blog. Then you have to wait a few years. When you get to that point, lemme know and I’ll walk you through the final steps.

    • beed says:

      First you need a script. Then you have to get financing. Then actors. Costumes. A studio. Lighting effects. All sorts of shit.

      It’s a tedious endeavour.

    • beed says:

      Or go the Bunk route. Whatever. Still tedious.

    • Bunk X says:

      Macker, Beed and I can help, but we need a little seed money. Not much, just something to start the research.

      • beed says:

        I’m just worried about the costumes, Bunk. It’s always the costumes that causes the headache. Remember last time? ISTE didn’t exactly look like a fighter pilot in that bike helmet.

      • Bunk X says:

        The blue and white checkered tablecloth “cape” didn’t help either, but I thought the gas mask was a nice touch.

      • lol. No, and that is what you get for shopping in WUB’s closet.

      • beed says:

        That’s what we got for spending too much money on “research”. ISTE still thinks that cape and helmet cost $12,000…

      • beed says:

        “Yes, ISTE, all these people are extras. No, honest! They’re in on it! Yes, this is where the money went. Let’s go. Seriously dude – we don’t have all day. Yes, it’s cold. Now, please drop your pants and start running. Stick to the script.”

    • DEZ says:

      Cheapest route would be windows movie maker.

  8. snowcrash says:

    Bravo Emeperor! This is one of the best. You will make Dark Falcon famous. Lol hilarious and awesome and all those other words that banshee knows, but I do not. Very enjoyable.

  9. snowcrash says:

    I am concerned no one will see it because it is posted here, in our tiny backwater blog, that no one ever reads.

    • DEZ says:

      Not true my dear, it has been spotted on Titter.

    • nils says:

      Don’t know if you caught my Jon Stewart clown-nose GIF the other day – I had to make one but I couldn’t find anything on Google.

      I googled for “Jon Stewart clown-nose” images today, and our image on DoD was the number one result, lol.

  10. This was pretty damn funny.

    You know Charles has to be chugging the pepto anymore.

  11. beed says:

    Next vid should feature Charles, mad with rage, screaming “I’ll rape you in the ear!” at Buck because Buck won’t shut up and Charles can’t find the banhammer.

    • Whatever says:

      You and what medium-sized Weiner?

      • ElSuerte says:

        Well, he’s got that 2 inch long stale Hot Lime cheeto that fell behind the Macintosh LC he’s got running the correlator tool.

        I know what you’re thinking. Preposterous! Charles abhors stale cheetos. It’s a natural law akin to Global Warming!.

        Well, you see, it was really really out of reach of his flabby T-Rex arms, and he’d already been in that chair for 3 days straight and he wasn’t about to get up for no damn cheeto, no sir!

  12. Lord Nazh says:

    Back from camping! Anything new? 😉

    • Bunk X says:

      Banshee said that you were a turd-smoking a-hole, but other than that, nothing much.

      • beed says:

        Your quote is imprecise. What Banshee said was “turd-sniffing analspelunk”.

        But why bring that up?

      • Lord Nazh says:

        I always knew he liked me, but that’s almost stalker-ish

      • beed says:

        What do you expect from a guy who loves Wagner, reads Nietzsche in Platt Deutsch and is a member of the Boone and Crockett Club?

      • Archonix says:

        Platt deutsche eh? That sounds awfully german and nationalist to me. Are you a nazi? Don’t try to deny it, you hang around with serbian genocide deniers and climate change “skeptics”! You paulian fascist you!

      • Whatever says:

        Well, he called me a turd burglar, not realizing that his toilet was leaking into his basement.

  13. garycooper says:

    Nice work, Emperor. Indistinguishable from my mental-picture of the real situation in Das Culvert. 🙂

  14. Emperor says:

  15. ISpeakJive says:

    Here’s a poll for Chunk.
    Gallup poll released yesterday. Willingness to vote for a Mormon president:
    would/would not
    Republicans 80/18
    Independents 79/19
    Democrats 71/27

    Chucks new friends: 50% more religiously bigoted than his old friends.

  16. Whatever says:

    Stories that you won’t see at LFG:

  17. Whatever says:

    Spam thing eating comments again.

    • xesaie says:

      yeah, you’re right it is. You’re wrong in another way, that link has come up at least twice in the ‘pages’.

      • Whatever says:

        Since no sane person running windows would go to that site, because it has been known to serve/refer malware, I guess I’ll just never know for sure.

      • xesaie says:

        Man I haven’t heard that one before. You guys come up with all kinds of crazy things, don’t you?

      • Whatever says:

        Once is weird. Twice is very weird. The third time, it’s a fact.

      • Bunk X says:

        No, we don’t make shit up. Some of the links from the swamp take you to malware sites. Not very often, but they have.

  18. Banshee says:

    The Mountain Lion got prick-whipped by the Furry yesterday.

  19. KGB says:

    I’m just wondering, but are there any other videos out there that can be used for parodies or just this Hitler one? Sooner or later it’s going to get old, right?

    • snowcrash says:

      BabbaZee used to post ones featuring Bollywood type actors with her own subtitles to fit the situation. Very funny lady. She also posted cool music. I liked her a lot. Her banning is more proof that Charles is wack.

    • nils says:

      How about one of Charles’ own interviews? No idea if that’d work or not – hard to top Hitler.

      • Emperor says:

        That’d be possible, but then you’d have to overdub Charles’ voice by recording whatever dialogue you want, and try to sync it to the video. Or you could use a text-to-speech thing and make Charles talk like a robot. 😛

    • Whatever says:

      Animal house might have possibilities. Or maybe the Jerk.

    • nils says:

      Oh, and any of the Super Dave stuff could work imo.

      • nils says:

        Or not.

        The mapping of the physical stunts SD fails at to CJ’s blogosphere fails probably isn’t straightforward.

    • Mandingo Warrior says:

      What about comic book man from the simpsons? seems like a pretty good fit.

    • Well I think the subtitles are the key, in that you don’t have to overdub your own audio. That means that you have to stick with foreign films.

      To wit, I think there might be some potential in Asian cinema, like those old school kung fu flicks with the cheesy hairdos and super zoom closeups and all that. Might be funny. Or, you’d have to dig up some other european film, maybe one about a cult that was run by a guy with a long ponytail.

  20. Mandingo Warrior says:

    Nice job emperor! I swear when I watched that video I believed the characters, setting, and tone of it. Best work yet!

  21. Voltaires Crack says:

    Great pace and realism!

      Thanks, I needed a refresher on why I despise this asshole:
      @davidfrumdavidfrum

      @AndrewBreitbart Just a suggestion: you don’t have to be a psychopath to be a conservative.

    • Banshee says:

      Breitbart is a dick for acting like Chunk is in Frum’s league.

      • Whatever says:

        Frum’s claim to fame is writing speeches. I’m so impressed, I’m impressed.

      • Banshee says:

        And Breitbart has ever done what in his life, aside from being the teabag “Jackass”?

      • garycooper says:

        Banshee :And Breitbart has ever done what in his life, aside from being the teabag “Jackass”?

        When he’s not taking down members of Congress, pun intended, he manages to keep busy:

        Andrew Breitbart (pronounced /ˈbraɪtbɑrt/; born February 1, 1969) is an American publisher,[2] commentator for the Washington Times, author,[3] an occasional guest commentator on various news programs who has served as an editor for the Drudge Report website. He was a researcher for Arianna Huffington, and helped launch her website, The Huffington Post.[4]

        He currently runs his own news aggregation site, Breitbart.com, and five other websites: Breitbart.tv, Big Hollywood, Big Government, Big Journalism, and Big Peace.

      • Whatever says:

        Now what’s Banshee done for fame and fortune?

      • Banshee says:

        God bless America, the land that pays for professional dicks.

      • Whatever says:

        As opposed to what dickless land?
