MeTube Extra: I knew this was going to happen

No sooner do I announce my impending departure than I find a bunch of videos that I simply can't keep to myself.

First, here's one I've been hoping to find for a long time. Woody Allen, early in his career, did some work for Allen Funt's Candid Camera program. Here he dictates a love letter to an unsuspecting secretary.

One more Sesame Street bit I (L is for) love, love, love.

And then there's Steve Riks. He's a UK comedian got hundreds of clips on YouTube where he does impressions of various musicians. His McCartney and Freddy Mercury are pretty awesome, but here I'd like to just focus on his Lennon...

...and his Bowie.

Like I said, his Lennon and his Bowie.

Hey Patrick,
I see that you plan on leaving to pursue other matters. I wanna wish you luck on that and hope all goes well.

I wanna propose an idea for you. I, being an avid reader of metube, like the idea (I even thought of something similar before finding yours, I didn't do it cause I didn't wanna be ripping you off) and think it shouldn't die. So how about maybe I continue it on my own Blogger profile, doing daily youtube vids updates? Maybe, with your permission, call it MeTube: The Next Generation or something. This way, you can let your fans/avid readers not be without their daily MeTube fix.

If you don't like the idea I described above, then let me know and I'll come up with something else.
Thanks for reading this!

Jason - Thanks for your good wishes. In the abstract, I love the idea - you've got some great work on your blogs. I'll email you and we can discuss the concrete...

BUT in the cartoon, "L" is for "LIPS". I am hard-of-hearing, but I heard & understood THAT!

I don't disagree in the slightest. But "One more Sesame Street bit I (L is for) lips" wouldn't have made too much sense. Hooray for artistic license!
