U.S.S. Mariner » Bugs Bunny, greatest banned player ever
This just blew me away.

First of all, if you’ve never seen the referenced cartoon, you’re missing one of the greatest of all time. Go rent the DVD.

The author spends a long article in a dead-pan analysis of the entire cartoon as if it were a real baseball game played in 1946, rationalizing the toon’s gags and attempting to apply real physics. The level of detail is unbelievable.

That must have been really hard to write. Humor is tough. I’d give him respect just for the effort, but it’s actually funny as well.

And it made me want to see that toon again!
