I was sorry today to learn of the death of Cheetah the Chimpanzee. As most people know, all elderly Americans retire to Florida at some stage, and the well known actor from the Tarzan films was no exception, living out his twilight years in an old chimps’ home on the panhandle.
What not so many people know is that Cheetah was one of the best impersonators of Hitler in Hollywood. As a fitting obitury to the great actor of the Tarzan films, I’d like to share this clip of Cheetah in his best role. Enjoy!
This has to be one of the most bizarre spoofs on Youtube…
You didn’t steal mine did you?
I often get asked this. The answer is… not much. Well actually, at this time of year there’s one thing. The Creme Egg.
Here’s one way to open one… brought to you by the official flatmate from Hell!
Meet the McBurgerQueen Burger.
It’s a classic… but did you know they made a German version too?
Following on from the knobbly stick, here’s a story about a knobbly broomstick.
All you need to know to understand the film is:
1. Köln and Düsseldorf are rival cities
2. At Karneval time, people from Köln greet each other with “Alaaf!” and Düsseldorfers greet each other with “Helau!”
3. This clip was created by a Kölner
4. In the clip, a new piece of voice-activated street-sweeping equipment is being tested. To operate… just say “Alaaf!”
The best German fairy tales are not always the version we thought we knew….
Many thanks to my brother for sending me this clip!
