At the moment, I'm downloading Cartman telling a dirty joke. (Edit: Don't watch unless you like unmitigated filth.) It's part of that movie, The Aristocrats", which consists entirely of a bunch of comics (and Cartman) telling their own versions of the same joke. The download (Apple Quick Time file, so I don't even know how to save the thing) is taking longer than I expected. I'm coming up on 8MB after 35 minutes, and that's only about a third of it. Dial-up. All I can say is, it better be a damned good dirty joke! Maybe I have time to take a shower before it finishes downloading. I'd feel less temporally extravagant if I did that.
I found the link to the Cartman joke at Comedy Central's brand-new weblog. It's loaded with links to videos (which I won't be downloading any time soon) of bits from several of their shows. Ah, for a high-speed connection! The cost of that crown would get me about two years of Comcast broadband, at their cable subscriber discount price. That tooth has a lot to answer for.
Shower now. Cartman should be ready by the time I'm done.
Update: oh my god.
Excuse me, I have to go and re-shower now. (I wish I had some lye soap.)
