Someone call PETA, Glenn Beck just killed a frog…or did he? We all remember his Oligarchy fail from a few weeks ago and now he seems to either be totally insane or a viral marketing genius.
On Wednesday, Glenn Beck was making a metaphor about how the sweeping changes initiated by the Obama administration are sure to have Americans hopping out of the “boiling water” he has created.
What better way to illustrate the point than by testing that old saying about how a frog will jump out of hot water if it’s already boiling hot. If you throw the frog into cold water, however, and gradually make it hotter, the frog will supposedly just sit there and die.
It’s important to note that this theory is inaccurate. Please do not try to boil your friendly, neighborhood frog.
Anyway, Glenn Beck attempts to illustrate this point by picking up a frog and making his point:
Barack Obama has galvanized the country, because of the sheer size of the bills he’s proposed, and the number of the bills, the urgency he’s placing on the bills. He’s forced us to think…and get involved! We have, not like John McCain, been boiled slowly. We have been tossed quickly into boiling water, and don’t forget what happens! What happens when you throw ‘em in? When you throw ‘em in, frogs into boiling water…
[tosses frog into boiling water...nothing happens]
Okay, forget the frog. [pause] I swear I thought they jumped right out. But they don’t.
WTF? What just happened. Relax, Glenn Beck explains…
Forget about the Republicans, because most of them are fake. Forget about the Democrats, because most of them are fake…and forget about the frog, because it was fake.
Whew, for a minute, I thought Glenn Beck was going to be “knee deep” in PETA activists. Get it? “Knee deep?” Frogs say “knee deep”? OK, well at least I can spell “oligarchy”. Video below…
