Childrens’ Hospital, a ten-webisode series starring the Corddry brothers and Ed Helms, with at least one Colbert voiceover. Brilliantly sends up the medical-drama genre.

Afganisu-tan – in a similar vein as the more recent hit Axis Powers Hetalia, a short comic summarizing Middle Eastern history with the countries personified as moe girls. If “bloody regional conflicts portrayed as cute girls thwapping each other” will offend you, skip this one.

The Crazy Adventures of Wassup Holmes, a rap video. Yes, Holmes is this gangsta.

Nice White Lady, a MAD TV sketch. A distillation of every “nice white teacher saves troubled minority class” movie ever.

Story Pirates invade TDS. It’s always fun to watch someone else take over Jon’s show. damnit, Viacom.

The BBC is currently running Dalek, I Love You, in which a Doctor Who fanboy meets a woman who claims to be a time traveler. Worth listening to for the geeking out alone.

I came across Afuganisu-tan via 4chan and showed it to some friends. More than a few were disturbed. It’s linked to on TV Tropes for depicting 9/11 as bin Laden (represented as a cat) biting Ameri-tan’s hand and making them angry. The cuteness counterbalances the sheer oddness of it.

Also, I think Afuganisu-tan inspired Hetalia. Not sure.

Aww, the TDS one is gone. :/

Oh, I love Nice White Lady!

The Homes thing is disturbing, as I’m a major fangirl, but I couldn’t help gigling at it.
