YouTube Video Chain Mini-Challenge

This mini challenge will run from noon to three pm Eastern (9am to noon Pacific).

After four hours of read-a-thoning. (Has read-a-thon ever been used as verb before?), you are probably ready for a little break. You may be a little grumpy, especially if you live in a time zone where the read-a-thon starts in the early morning.

The object of this little game is to create a chain of funny Youtube videos. At the end of this post, I will leave a link to one of my favorite funny Youtube videos. The first person who wants to participate will watch the video. Then they will comment with a link to their favorite funny video in a comment. The next person will watch the most recent Youtube video posted and so on.

If there is heavy traffic and someone posts a video while you are still watching, do not fret. Just go on. Post your youtube video. This isn’t supposed to be complicated.

(In simpler terms if you still do not understand, just watch the video posted in the most recent comment. Then, post a link to your favorite funny youtube video)

Hopefully in several hours we will have a bunch of the funniest videos posted here. In the remaining hours of the read-a-thon, you can refer back to this post if you want another distraction.

You may participate several times if you like. I will put your name in a hat for each time you do it and then whatever the prize is, I'll draw names.

Guidelines for choosing your video:
-Keep it PG
-Stay away from videos whose main theme is to criticize or promote certain political or religious groups. This is supposed to be fun, not offensive.
-Don’t post a video over ten minutes long. This is a read-a-thon, not a you-tube-a-thon
-Yes, they must be FUNNY. Don’t leave a link to a video of your kid taking his first steps unless he does something like barf all over you in the process.

I am allowing comments to be posted without me approving them for this mini-challenge. Therefore, you are on the honor system for this time. If you see something fishy posted, please use the contact form in my sidebar to tell me! (yes, I am paranoid!)

UPDATE: The prize is a $10 Amazon Gift Card

I enjoy ventriloquism! I've only seen one live, and it was really amazing. Anyway, hah, corn dog! :))

Anyway...I enjoyed that Simon's Cat video! Cute!
