As far as silly Internet memes go, given my interest in World War II history, I have a weakness for Downfall parodies, which have grown up on YouTube like kudzu over the last couple of years. I also thought it was only a matter of time before someone did something like this and wondered why it hadn’t been done before:

I love it:
“Perhaps that 14 Studies website was too high brow.” Heh.
“Now I’ll have to pay for another stupid telephone survey.” Heh heh.
“But what’s the use? Orac will only make fun of me.” Heh heh heh.
It’s a bummer when the scientific evidence encircles you like the Red Army encircling Berlin in April 1945. My guess, though, is that the target of the humor in this particular Downfall parody will misinterpret this mocking parody as calling him a Nazi.
