"Who's That Spartan In My Teepee?" "It's me! It's Me!"

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 | 26
It never ceases to amaze me how often I will accidentally find something really cool on a search engine that I wasn't actually looking for. Recently I found several versions of the SNL Spartan Cheerleading Skit performed by various kids from different schools across the country. After I watched two or three of them I was hooked! It's really fun to note the differences in delivery and diction of the young thespians, as well as the ways in which the sketches are staged and rewritten. My personal favorite is this one, but I also really liked these versions: [ 2, 4, 5, 6, 9 ] I really enjoyed how they managed to play out the pathos in the ending in this version, and this version from the Montgomery Community Vacation Bible School gets a special award for unintentional self-parody and general creepiness.

Yes we need good strong Christian men to volunteer? The skit is funny, but it does get a little creepy.

Just uncovered your site and am thrilled to have yet another excuse to waste time at work. It appears that simian blogs are vastly superior to those of man.
