Trampledamage needs to see this.
That's awesome. I love Pocoyo.

Here's a version that should fit within the avatar requirements (it's 132kB instead of 194kB). The timings are a little different to the original, though.

Perfect! Ellie the elephant will make someone a perfect av. I wonder if trampledamage will like it?

"It's amazing what it does for YouTube comments."

A few months ago my 14-year-old son's biology class had to act out the female reproductive system (I question his teacher's motives, but never mind). My son was narrator, and told me he used his best Morgan Freeman voice. Apparently it took the edge off the other students' acute embarrassment.

Where did you find that? I want to tweet it.
I think I snagged it off Facebook. Feel free to snag yourself, as it's not my photo. I don't know who to credit for it, as it was doing the rounds for a while before it showed up in my friend's feed.

TinEye can find only 9 results when searching for that image. Apparently it made the front page of Reddit at some point.
It's from the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear as far as I've been able to figure out.

Except no one talks like that and it's non-specific. "Han shot" something like 60 times throughout the trilogy. But if you say "Han shot first," everyone knows exactly what you're referencing (except for the goofballs who get it mixed up with that other time ).

You're welcome, no problem

TinEye is a picture-search service (with a plug-in for Firefox) that lets you right click on an image and search for other versions/copies of it around the net, and of course you can use Google to search for images: either by simply dragging the image into the search bar in your browser or by uploading an image from your system instead of typing words into it.

....oo0oo....

(Responding to bolded part) - Only because it's gotten into popular culture that (incorrect) way. Doesn't mean I'm not going to correct someone when they say it.

At the risk of sounding like an uber-geek for even having this debate (too late), "Han shot first" is not incorrect because Greedo had his gun drawn and had every intention of shooting (he even said he was going to kill Han), it's just that Han didn't give him the chance.

"Han shot" was never something anyone said from the moment the Special Editions came out, and it never would have caught on regardless, because it's awkward sounding and nondescript and doesn't look good on a t-shirt. "Han shot first" is the shortest descriptive summary of "Han shot Greedo before Greedo could shoot him," is the logical counterpoint to "Greedo shot first" from the Special Edition version, and Han's habit of shooting first also has the benefit of having been referenced in the EU both before and after the Special Editions came out.

Now I feel dirty. Here, just to keep things relevant to the thread:
