Whenever I see stuff like this these days I think of Lessig's "Remix", and I find a reason to appreciate the clips even if they're of suspect quality.

Incidentally, a few of those didn't really grab me - Elmo, Swingers, Tim Allen, Tinkerbell, Kirsten Dunst?

. . . and now, lest no man think that in the waning days of our Lord's year two thousand and eight--even though it is the Sunday after Saint Nickolaus's Day, and though the weather is altogether too warm and muggy for the season--that your faithful servant has lost his will to fight for victory, I shall put aside the petty concerns of bloggers and e-mail, and approach this brief with a new fierceness and bravery, so that summary judgment will be OURS IN THE NEW YEAR!!!

Where else but on VC can one read an eighty-six word sentence which makes an attorney look like Walter Mitty?

Well done, Snaphappy.

If you have a comment about spelling, typos, or format errors, please e-mail the poster directly rather than posting a comment.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
