Hmmm I only heard one bad word and it was bleeped... Maybe I wasn't listening closely enough.

Anyway. Good video... but...

SNAGGLEPUS WAS NOT GAY.

Just sayin'. Pink's also a power color, ya know. Donald Trump wears pink ties. A lot.

I especially enjoyed the "handedness" of villains vs. heroes. I'd never consciously noticed that before but it's worth paying attention to...

I wonder how entrenched the dexterous/sinister paradigm is in our current cultural mindset.

I got pretty hooked on these Cracked After Hour videos. They do an awesome job dissecting pop culture and just pooing on everything we loved.

ZOMG dude this might just be a bona fide thing... I'm watching Star Trek II right now and Khan's left hand is bare, and his right has a glove on it...

And he's gesturing with his left hand...

Hate to get all "English major" here, but the concept of left-handed = villain is so prevalent that there's even a trope about it.

I'm certainly not saying that this is true, but the usage of a southpaw in a villainous role has a tradition dating back to Shakespeare - and likely even before.

That makes sense, since there was a time when people thought left-handedness was a symptom of demonic possession.
