Good Friday Fun

Right, it’s Good Friday, so this is possibly blasphemous, but I couldn’t let the sacred day pass without some comedy reference. I was pondering a few things when, last night, I spotted this video on Facebook, courtesy of a vicar-type friend:

Defying Gravity from Peter Ould on Vimeo.

Yep, that would be right, it’s a combination of scenes from The Passion of the Christ with Defying Gravity (Glee style) in the background. And yes, that’s the very track I was talking about yesterday – spooky! It’s three of my favourite things combined into one short video: Wicked, Glee and Jesus. An unlikely combination, I think you’d agree.

If that doesn’t quite do it for you, here are a few other amusing gems:

  • The difference between nerd, geek & dork explained via a Venn diagram. I am thus able to conclude that I am less of a dweeb and more of a nerdy geek. I’ll sleep easier tonight… 
  • What happens when a small boy discovers that he’s not a single lady. Devastating doesn’t even begin to describe it. 
  • Just in case you missed them, great April Fools round ups courtesy of the Guardian’s live-blog and Gizmodo. My personal favourites were the broadband laying ferrets and xkcd‘s offering – intriguing and diverting. (Read the comments in the Gizmodo article for the full low-down on the xkcd fool, I was entranced.)
And with that, it is Easter – well, it will be on Sunday. Enjoy. Eat chocolate, make sure you’ve tried a MaltEaster bunny before they vanish. Don’t forget to also celebrate the resurrection of the Lord and the disappearance of creme eggs for another 9 months.

    Thanks a lot, Liz… here I am, innocently checking blogs, and I press play on yours, and find myself in floods… way to ambush a girl!
