This short film from Craig MacNeill and written by Clay McLeod Chapman is so brilliant I can’t stand it. A few thoughts:
? Vaginas actually kind of are that scary to boys. Especially in the 7th grade. Probably some of the girls, too, I’d imagine. ? For the male reproductive system, the teacher either drew a large dick or very tiny balls. ? I’m pretty sure this is how Zardoz gets started. ? I don’t know how much the kids knew about what they were filming, but I’m certain they’re all scared for life anyways. ? You realize, of course, this video features Lovecraft teaching lovecrafts, right?
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
