Came across this this cracked.com humor piece today in the comments of Brian Doherty’s commentary on the recent permit probation issue for Burning Man. While reading it I realized that I’d read it before, and it contained one of the singular best lines I’ve ever come across.
Now I know I’m behind the curve on this one, but it was only today that I discovered the greatness that is http://www.unclejayexplains.com .
Uncle Jay thinks itâ€™s really, really important for todayâ€™s news to be understood by todayâ€™s innocent, ignorant and immature minds.
â€œUncle Jay Explains the Newsâ€ began in 1995 on a local TV station. It even won an Emmy. Today, Uncle Jay continues his mission on the internet.
Itâ€™s his way of staying connected with young people, now that heâ€™s no longer allowed within 500 feet of a school. Tell all your friends about Uncle Jay so that they can also learn more about the world, and about how to figure out what the heck it all means. Grownups themselves sure donâ€™t know.
