Will It Blend?

What happens if you put an iPhone in a blender?

That concoction he pours out at the end is simply further proof -- as if any more were needed -- that iPhones are constructed from the ashes of missing Capitol Hill dogs and cats.

It took a lickin' but didn't keep tickin'. American's just do not make quality any more.

Sorry Dan, but this video is old old old. So old that it was one of the first things I watched on YouTube... er, on my iPhone when I got it. Now THAT was a meta moment.

I wouldn't want to be breathing that iPhone dust. Nasty.

In other news, there's now a Royal YouTube channel for HRH Queen Elizabeth. Awesome!

It's HM for the Queen. Her children are HRHs.

Carry on.

I realize, MoTown, that the Internets is a race, and that if something has been posted once, anywhere, that means that everyone, everywhere, has already seen it. Forgive me for re-posting this and violating the spirit of the Internets.

@5 Thanks! Now I remember. HRH was what HM took away from the Queen of Hearts, the People's Princess, aka Diana.

um this video is like 9 months old

Hey, it's a slow news day, alright? Cut Dan some slack....

How about the british royal family in a blender?

Posted by Harold | December 23, 2007 11:57 AM

@ 12 -- Interesting idea. Would that the Queen Mother yet lived -- her blended essence would be 93.47% Hendrick's gin, and 6.53% diamonds.

We remove comments that are off topic, threatening, or commercial in nature, and we do not allow sock-puppetry (impersonating someone else)—or any kind of puppetry, for that matter. We never censor comments based on ideology.

I didn't know that Dan supported the invasion of Iraq. I guess he should feel sympathy for Clinton and her war vote.

"Brave Republican Warrior's" comments don't seem so much concerned about the children affected by the war as he is with the fact that Dan Savage made them. He calls Savage on the hypocrisy of being anti-war now but not then.

This is a perfect example of why I hate republicans. They don't care about the people in Iraq suffering and dying in this war, they just want to smear anyone who disagrees with them. It is the most disgusting thing about the Republican Party and that's saying alot with so much to choose from.

If Brave Republican Warrior is so brave and a warrior, why isn't he in Iraq fighting for the cause? That was a rhetorical question. We all know that he, like all Republican chicken-hawks, is a coward and would never fight for his president.

Causing magic smoke to be released from device may void the warranty. (Any electrical engineers in the house to get the joke?)

Jackass Republican WhateverTheFuck,

Your comments are OFF-TOPIC and they should be deleted. There's no controversy here. Your polluting the discussion other people are trying to have with things THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TOPIC AT HAND. Hence, they are "off-topic." Scream censorship all you want, you're a loon and everyone knows it. If Dan posts about the war, make your pointless comment. Make it ONCE. Making that comment in a thread about iPhones is OFF FUCKING TOPIC.

If you want to inform the world about Dan Savage's initial (note!) support for the Iraq war, start your own fucking blog.

Oh, and everybody already knows he supported the invasion, and nobody cares. It's been dealt with, and he's changed his tune. People who admit their mistakes in this political climate should be praised, not constantly harassed about views they have since recanted.

But the larger point, really, is this:
Shut the fuck up and go away. You're an asshole.

Wow, Jodie Foster is gay? Who would have thought....

Posted by Incontinent Impudent Imp | December 23, 2007 4:32 PM

I love that video. Even though it's old. And even though it makes me a little sad, cuz of how that guy is gonna get cancer.

Posted by violet_dagrinder | December 23, 2007 5:11 PM

Aww, I don't really care. Have a pagan doob in my mouth and Crown of Creation on the stereo. Life is good.

This 'Dan supported the War' blogspammer asshole is definitely a Fascist Republican, and here's how I know:

1. He forces the SLOG admins to institute some heinous registration policy (ugh).

2. Some decent interval later, the guys in the unmarked cars and earphones pay a visit to The Stranger to collect the registration logs.

3. Free extended (or permanent) vacations for many of us, in some place with much better weather than Seattle! Think of a sunny island, not TOO far from Florida...

@16, I'm not an EE, but am enough of a techie to know that, yep, if you even once let the smoke leak out of a sealed piece of electronic electronic equipment, it never works as well anymore.

Posted by Eric in Boulder | December 23, 2007 8:21 PM

You may be right, conspiracy theorist.

Let me take this moment to state unequivocally that the mentally ill of America simply haven't tried hard enough to impress Jodie Foster in well over 26 years....

fuck that hi-$$ blender... I gotta pair of Scissors that will cut a Nickel in two- without AC current! Betcha blenderman can't do That... chow ^..^

Posted by herbert browne | December 23, 2007 9:20 PM

Wouldn't it have been a whole lot easier to just throw a whole stack of $20 bills in the blender?

Posted by Fifty-Two-Eighty | December 24, 2007 1:01 PM

@24: yah, I was thinking the same thing. I mean, those damn things cost a fortune! Throw one my way instead of destroying the thing! I was going to say: then I'll let you blend some of my poop, but that was sort of too much like a 2 girls one cup thing. Shudder.

Posted by kristin | December 24, 2007 3:12 PM

Kristen, you are one sick, fucked-up person. I like that...
