Tasteless, I know....

Try not to laugh.

I agree with you Haystacks.

Tasteless.

But the music was daft. I had to close my eyes and try to think of something else to laugh at.

The images depicted on screen were not something to laugh about.

Anyway, who is Benny Hill?

Ok I've laughed at some sick things. This is not one of them. I must be insane, meh.

Ahh, I believe that was created by the good folks at SomethingAwful (which I belong to). It's not supposed to be parodying the actual tragedy itself, but the insane amount of coverage throughout the subsequent months.

edit: actually, no it's not. I'm not even certain it was created at SomethingAwful.

Why was the amount of coverage insane? It was one of the most fiendish and barbaric, not to mention one of the worst, terrorist atrocities ever committed.

Read my edit. I said it wasn't based on the coverage. I was thinking of a different video.

Shocking, but I couldn't help laughing.

Oh dear, I fear my seat in Hell may have just become a little more certain.

I felt guilty laughing.

I guess it's time to move on and laugh at our own tragedies.

Ive got to say.........I pissed myself.
Obviously not as funny to those who know nothing about Benny Hill. I still feel for the 9/11 victims and families but I did laugh.

They should have included more footage of people running.

This was worse than when I watched Passion of the Christ to Bon Jovi's "Bad Medicine"...which I have done at least three or four times. And still plan on doing some more. And recommend to anyone thinking about it...do it.
