Your Linkdump, My Embarrassment

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 8.442% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

I’m too tired today for a real post, so let’s have a linkdump of silly stuff that I’ve been meaning to bring to your attention.
The first is the most recent – our girlfriend Bec brought my attention to Epic Rap Battles of History (or, as those in the know call it, “EPUH WHA BAUHS HITTUHRY!”), of which I think these are the three best:
Darth Vader vs. Hitler

Justin Bieber vs. Beethoven

Dr. Seuss vs. Shakespeare

Of the three, I think the winners are Hitler, Beethoven, and a very close call on Shakespeare, who was being thrashed thoroughly in the first round until he staged an epic comeback in the second half.  (Though I do wonder how classicist Kat Howard would weigh in.)
Another weird video for your pleasure: Vytautas Mineral Water is Earth’s Juice! Sent to me by my pal George Galuschak, I’m not sure whether to thank him or slap him. Then again, I’m pretty sure George would GIVE NEGATIVE FUCK!

Lastly, when I was very sick (which explains the extraordinarily unkempt hair even by my standards), I began emulating emoticons for the amusement of my friends. Why shouldn’t you share this wonderment?
semicolon-parentheses
colon-parentheses
colon-P
colon-0
Okay, that third one should probably be :p and not ;p, but as I said. I was very sick.

    Nice video’s, and they reminded me of some Keynes vs Hayek rap battles, that were also pretty neatly done. It’s a little economics-nerdy, but maybe you’ll enjoy it:
