A Good and Proper Celebration of Labor Day

Wait, what are we celebrating again?

Transcript

Alex: Good evening everybody, Alex here.

Peter: And Peter.

Alex: It being Labor day, we thought it would be best to celebrate that fine tradition of working.

Peter: Yes, laboring. And laborers.

Alex: Indeed. This great nation has a rich heritage of working very hard.

Peter: Working until you stroke out!

Alex: Where would we be today without hundreds of years of free and cheap labor?

Peter: Nowhere, that's where!

Alex: Farming-

Peter: -or worse!-

Alex: -fishing.

Peter: Obviously, that would never do.

Alex: And so, we invented cheap and free labor!

Peter: Hooray!

Alex: First, we imported people and put them to work.

Peter: But since that turned out to be a moral travesty, we invented industry.

Alex: Yes, so we could oppress everyone equally!

Peter: Happy day!

Alex: Sadly, people realized they hated that too-

Peter: So then the devil brought us unions.

~~Sad head shaking.

Alex: But it's okay, because now we've figured out how put foreigners to work even without bringing them here on those filthy, filthy boats!

Peter: It's called outsourcing!

Alex: And now, thanks to this ongoing legacy of cheap and free labor, we can all enjoy our gadgets, clothes, and other symbols of affluence in happiness and prosperity!

~~Cheering.

Peter: Happy Labor Day, everybody! Other people have earned it.

Hilarity

Yes, we managed to squeak this out barely in time for Labor Day. It counts.

As for the content of this video, allow me to assure you that I am a capitalist. I love me some free markets. Still, it doesn't exactly escape my notice that people tend to be very mean to one another, and that is rarely more evident than when money is involved. (Or not involved, as the case may be.)

I also should really point out that this blog video required a staggering number of takes. I honestly can't remember the exact number, but it was a lot. There were definitely plenty of Bucking Sailboat segments that were far easier to produce.

And given how difficult Bucking Sailboat has been, that's saying a lot.

Stay tuned! More fuzzy-wuzzy coming your way!

ttyl!

Very nice. Also, the look on Alex's face after the video ends is VERY smarmy looking. XD

Smarmy

Lol I think Alex has found a new word to use. ;)

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

The Word and faith is my sword and shield

And Jesus is Lord of the way I feel!

Amazing

I really liked this video, guys. You two look so mice and serious and everything.

Why is that, Alex. What kept going wrong?

I agree that smarmy is a find word to use. But I keep waiting to hear someone use the adjectival form: smarmily. Do you two think you could put it in one of your blogs?

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

They look mice?

Everything looks perfect from far away.

Oops!

Wrong kids. I have one who looks mouse, but these two just look nice.

Thanks Ais. Getting even for all the corrections I made in your schoolwork?

You wouldn't have it any other way, would you? :)

Carrying on the tradition.

A guy sat across from me during lunch today and I caught a glimpse of his paper and saw a bunch of mistakes. I was this close to suggesting I help him fix them.

Everything looks perfect from far away.

Ah-ah-ah.

You'd better be careful. He'll either be deeply offended, or think you're trying to be friendly.
