    British people make the internet go 'round.

  2. SonicsmyName on December 4th, 2010 8:36 am

    Oh god, someone went and did it…

    Should I be surprised?

  3. Pendragon177 on December 4th, 2010 8:37 am

    Card games on motorcycles?

  4. ZenDragoon on December 4th, 2010 8:49 am

    I'm not so much surprised as I am thrilled :D

  5. masashi98 on December 4th, 2010 8:57 am

    I believe that when everyone first saw this picture they all read it out loud to themselves to see how it sounded

  6. HeavyDDR99 on December 4th, 2010 9:37 am

    Totalhalibut does it again it seems he has made his way onto halolz

    Indubitably, this fictional Japanese portable atrocity-styled electronic online watchable piece of work is as highly good as the ancient written stories of the Odyssey or Beowulf. As well, if submitting fictional Japanese portable atrocity-styled submissions was a contest, I would say that this one was the winner.

    *sips tea*

    *sips tea*
    I say, the numerous bursts of laughter provided by this aurally accompanied image was the desired remedy for this undesirable event concerning our Electrionical Genitalia.

  9. AubviusTroll on December 4th, 2010 10:25 am

    Verily, what you say is truth.

  10. Badonk on December 4th, 2010 10:34 am

    I say, verily am i fond of this chap who announces himself as halibut. For the young man has broadcast many a production featuring the amusement know as "Heavenly Body appertaining to Hostilitycraft" a quite riveting amusement, In which myself and my associates have enjoyed many a reconnaissance.

  11. smashpro1 on December 4th, 2010 10:35 am

    Indeed. It has affected myself, as well.

  12. Alpar on December 4th, 2010 10:42 am

    Trolls make the internet go 'nsane.

  13. Alpar on December 4th, 2010 10:43 am

    I do say, this act of verbosity, despite its intense abundance of language worthy of 69 Electronic Reputation Points, has failed to humour me due to a lack of instrumentals.

  14. Hejiru on December 4th, 2010 10:48 am

    Do you propose that this work requires the use of a ringing instrument associated with bovines?

  15. Dimomarg on December 4th, 2010 10:48 am

    I have traditional remedies. +1's. Lot's of them.

  16. Dimomarg on December 4th, 2010 10:51 am

    And Apparently someone was too British and too bored not to record it.

  17. Hejiru on December 4th, 2010 10:57 am

    And yet someone -1'd you for that. How unjust!
    I shall remedy. *+1's*

  18. NoChorus on December 4th, 2010 11:15 am

    I say, I deeply lament the unsettling fact that I am without any devices that enable audible output in order for me to listen to this chap's more than likely incredible recital.

    A quandary, this is.

  19. Illius_Nakarou on December 4th, 2010 11:21 am

    Totalhalibut is epic!!!

  20. Deep Thought on December 4th, 2010 11:49 am

    What was it that Nietzsche said? "In fighting trolls one must not become a troll himself?" Or was he talking about drummers…

  21. TehVortex on December 4th, 2010 12:10 pm

    I, too, am in a position of humourless lament. Perhaps at the lack of musical apparatus, perhaps at the hesitation frequently sampled displaying a sense of broken rhythm…I could only entertain 45 seconds of it.

  22. TehVortex on December 4th, 2010 12:12 pm

    …Remedied like a well-cast Hyper Potion.

  23. doepker on December 4th, 2010 12:31 pm

    Upon first witness of this, I tried to project the lyrics through harmonious phrases. When attempted amongst my peers, I was made a mockery of, and now upon listening to the above submission, I realiize that projecting in a monotone voice would have been the better option.

  24. Roflcopter419 on December 4th, 2010 12:42 pm

    Well, they did rule a good portion of it for quite some time.

  25. Deep Thought on December 4th, 2010 1:11 pm

    Quite, but while this enjoyable video with verbal accompaniment has been fun, it shall still be noted that the incident involving our virtual virility has still been a problem that will need to be remedied forthwith.

  26. Grammar Nazi Ghost on December 4th, 2010 1:35 pm

    I'm pretty sure it was "He who fights with drummers might take care lest he thereby become a drummer."

  27. demospyro on December 4th, 2010 2:28 pm

    I liked the part where he said Portable atrocities.

  28. Kam_Fakami on December 4th, 2010 2:58 pm
  29. FrEEz on December 4th, 2010 3:03 pm

    Read nicely but…


  30. _Twitch_ on December 4th, 2010 3:14 pm

    An emergency string quintet has been dispatched to your location, good sir.

  31. Kevvo on December 4th, 2010 3:19 pm


    As an aside, through the use of sensory organs affiliated with the act of hearing, I have come to understand that you have an appreciative inclination towards Mudkips.

  32. RemielChibus on December 4th, 2010 3:23 pm

    This be dun' gud! Yeehaw!

    Oh, aw'm sorreh. There a fancypants con-veen-chun goin' on?

  33. Sir_Nox on December 4th, 2010 4:09 pm

    Needed more of this in the background.

  34. DM1293 on December 4th, 2010 4:15 pm

    I am highly apologetic, but I must speak my mind and verily proclaim that I prefer the gentlemen translation and version of "meet the spy". The gentlemen in that video seemed to enjoy proclaiming their statements to each other.

  35. Yoshi_Dino on December 4th, 2010 4:30 pm

    I dare say I believe most things sound better when you speak them in a British accent my dear chaps.

  36. Ichiinu on December 4th, 2010 4:45 pm

    The distinct lack of a rhythm to the said recitation turned what was designed as a musical piece into a most humorless lecture. Instrumentation of some design would also have been appreciated.

  37. Zyquux on December 4th, 2010 4:55 pm

    Good sir, I must inform you that I indeed attempted to process both this music and the original reading through my auditory sensory organs. Alas, the two electronic moving pictures do not proceed at the same rate, creating a disharmonious musical piece.

  38. Zyquux on December 4th, 2010 5:11 pm

    I have perused the commentary made by members of the community of the Hollow Cylindrical Object of the Second-Person and members of the community of the Laughter of Circular Heavenly Head Toppers and have seen the distinct class differences between the two communities. I dare say that we are of a higher caliber than those uncouth miscreants. Indeed, it is my belief that our mythical brutes that deliver Negative Ones to our commentary are even above the general populace of the Hollow Cylindrical Object of the Second-Person.

  39. Happy on December 4th, 2010 6:14 pm

    I… know you said it was unrelated. I'm not sure why I expected that to be even remotely related.

  40. Barry Allen on December 4th, 2010 6:22 pm


  41. ZeikHunter on December 4th, 2010 7:10 pm

    I watched this video before it was featured on Halolz.


  42. RemielChibus on December 4th, 2010 7:11 pm

    …and apparently, this one comment was atrocious enough to lower my score by an entire 59 points. Lovely.

  43. TehVortex on December 4th, 2010 8:25 pm

    Very true. Such hastily diminishing status points leave me hesistant to respond to submissions such as thine placed above. At this moment, I've accounted eight points of mine not in attendence.

  44. Kam_Fakami on December 4th, 2010 9:16 pm

    *sips tea* Indeed so.

  45. akovaski on December 4th, 2010 10:27 pm

    Put this to the music of the original Pokémon theme song? Don't mind if I do. rel="nofollow">

  46. 3K9 on December 4th, 2010 10:59 pm

    schtum up ye drunken wretch

  47. smashpro1 on December 5th, 2010 12:28 am

    I am missing twelve of mine.

  48. TheRealLanthus on December 5th, 2010 6:41 am

    That was… beautiful!
    This will be read at my funeral!
    I'm going to go get Man Tissues for my Manly Man Tears.
