Top Reasons You'll Never Be Rich, and a PARKINSONS version of the Harlem Shake
3/6/2013 3:00:00 PM
As if the "goats yelling like humans" thing wasn't dumb enough . . . now there's a video online called "HUMANS YELLING LIKE GOATS YELLING LIKE HUMANS.”
OK Goats, you’ve jumped the shark. Or humans I mean. Humans have jumped the shark. Goats are still OK.
Random thought: If I had a goat I’d name him Gotye.
The "Forbes" 2013 Billionaires list is out. See why this has no impact on you whatsoever with the Top Reasons You'll Never Be Rich.
You live in America. In the year 2013. Under President Obama.
Your employer cut your hours because of Obamacare. And also because you refuse to wear pants.
You're always blowing your money on stupid things like your family and charity.
Your surefire plan to get out of debt is to invest all available funds in Lindsay Lohan's next film.
You just started a company whose mission statement includes a stubborn refusal to do any business over a "trendy new medium" like the Internet.
You haven't left the house in six years, because you've been WAY too busy trying to keep up with the Kardashians.
The only skill you have is complaining about being on welfare.
None of your daughters are willing to make a sex tape with Ray J.
Some enterprising genius already patented your blanket with sleeves idea.
Those damned CoinStar bastards keep taking 9%.
You're mistakenly laboring under the delusion that working is the best way to get ahead.
For some reason, nobody wants to give you millions of dollars just because you're super good at "World of Warcraft".
Your fake Internet girlfriend blew up your draft chances.
A dance called the "Harlem Shake" is going around online right now. In the past few weeks, a ton of people have uploaded videos of themselves doing it, and they're all set to a song called "Harlem Shake" by a DJ called Baauer. The dance basically involves humping the air and waving your arms around in pretty much any way you want to. So in other words, it looks like a bunch of people who CAN'T dance.
The Miami Heat have a version.
So does our own KSHE!
And The Point!
In what is either a clever way to raise awareness or a very bad idea, The Parkinson Society in Holland decided to remind people of what a devastating disease it is . . . by releasing a HARLEM SHAKE VIDEO.
The chairman is a guy named Erik Roos, who HAS Parkinson's. And he decided to skip his medication for the day. Then at the point where "Harlem Shake" videos usually kick into a bunch of people dancing, he falls down instead.
And a message pops up on the screen that says, quote, "Shaking. Fun for some. [A] daily struggle for others."

What do you think? Taking the joke too far?
And should WE do one of these? Like A Glover Show Harlem Shake, or 97.1 Shake?
