They have some AWESOME videos... I'm just now getting into watching their channel and so many of their videos are like 10+ years old but I've never seen them and they're WILDLY hilarious.

I'm changing the title to that BTW...

The Onion blows me away...

Kinda crazy I didn't really pay attention to them sooner...

I dunno, saw stories from them every now and then and thought they were funny...

But I never realized the true depth of what they were doing.
