    Isn`t this just a generally unfunny and fairly racist animation?

    Ah, FOAMY - he is the Lord and Master...course, my faves would be "Cemetery Flakes", "Almost Serious Suicide", and "Squirrel Songs". As to whether he`s being racist...that`s up to you. I almost think he`d rant against everyone, eventually. Me also thinks that the main point is really that he hates outsourcing....which makes perfect sense to me.

    That was genuinely hilarious. The only funnier one was that Fatkins diet one.

    I couldn`t get it to load, but someone said it is racist. I haven`t seen it, but that means it`s probably about an indian tech person. Just a guess. Humour usually laughs at frustrating situations like sitting on tech support lines for hours with untrained people. Laughing releases that tension.. If people are laughing at other races, then that is racist.. If they are laughing at a situation then it`s not. If the situation is continual outsourcing to India, that has nothing to do with dislike for that race, but dislike for the stupidity of outsourcing... Companies in our country should not be cheapos about tech suppport. Also if they paid more, I`m sure they could find smart techies in India or whereever. Again, I didn`t watch it or the other one on here. Neither would load. Is there another link somewhere? Anyone else have trouble loading about 1 in every 3 things they try?

    HAHAHA! I was truly funny! I had to change a setting in my flash player. Everything was so much like what happened to me it`s hysterically funny. Even the "hows the weather" and I can remember being surprised the 1st time I found out the person was so far away. Trying to be friendly, trying to understand and eventually figuring out how to solve the problem myself. I`ve had them tell me to reinstall windows, unplug my computer for 20 minutes and call back and on and on. The fact that someone could go to all the trouble to make a cartoon, and have it mirror my same experiences only prooves it`s like that all too often. It will only be funny to people who have really gone through this in real life. Again, it depends on who`s hired and for how much by "Smell", lol Dell. And it says that right in the animation, so it makes sense now ROFL!

    This happened to me, I was trying to connect my mac to comcast and I called tech support because I had an older mac, and the guy didn`t do poo. Then my mom called in the morning and it was back in America. I wanted to know why they switched areas from nighttime to daytime.
