I haven't seen much Government Music Video. The first was the infamous Just Say No anti-drug one in '85 in which hipsters like Herb Alpert urged us GenXers not to do cocaine. It was possible to see all the way through if impaired in some way.

There were also some examples of AdRoc from the military that I've banished from my mind.

Some time in the 1990s, kerebearus was partially responsible for some Government Music Video about nutrition and fitness for a local county here. I have memories of cute sixth graders chanting "NO PROTEIN POWDER! LOUDER!!!"

She refuses to have these digitized. So now we have something that kerebearus would also appreciate. Government Health Care Recruiting Furry Hip-Hop! YO WAASSSUUPPP GOV!

planetdracula are you pumpin' yo fist in agreement?

Blame to the Exploding Aardvark.

any rap song that includes the word "commonwealth" is a winner in my book.

the http://www.cheeseawards.com/ site is updated, by the way. I'm not sure what you'd have to say about the people involved, but the judging end is all either local notables (some of whom are very good at food) and "who the fuck is this" people.

I'd like to sneak in and eat, but I worry about salmonella with a crowd like that.

haha! Last price at "half-price tickets"!

There are some good folks there but generally speaking, chefs don't know crap about cheese.

My favorite part? almost all the cheeses pictured on the site are not American. Definitely the most prestigious cheese competition in America. With all 18 cheesemaker participants.

This is so Newport Beach. Donald Rumsfeld and a faked-up shitty cheese awards show within 300 yards of each other on the same weekend.

I liked the list of classes, too. It all seemed to be about 1) get drunk! 2) have dessert! and 3) Eat mac & cheese!

I am gonna have my own next year. 1000 gallons of box "chardonnay," 5000 gallons of Easymac, and a bag of Swarovsky crystal. Now if I can just get Hitchens to MC it...

My wah was just fine, even through the "Go G-Hog" refrain, until I read your tag "Take a yiff out of crime."

My wah is now damaged.

I hate the word "yiff." It ruins any sentence (or subject) it's used in.

This was terrifying.
