Video: All is right with the world … and Evander Holyfield’s ear

I can’t help it — I smiled at this:

I watched that fight live on TV when the ear-biting happened, and thought it was the strangest thing I’d ever witnessed personally to that point.  It might still qualify for that distinction, actually.  It’s still good to see that Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson have buried the hatchet (or the teeth) and give us a chuckle all these years later.

Readers will probably like the Rodman segment best, though.

Just wait, with the pressure mounting, and the thinness of his skin, obozo is a ticking time bomb of strangeness waiting to go off. His pending mental breakdown is going to be epic.

One way! Woo-Hoo!

*wakes up*

Awww… :(

Probably bite off Boehner’s ear…

…which’ll make Boehner cry.

Tyson wants to meet Captain Kirk, because he has a left ear, a right ear, & a “final frontier.”

*rimshot*

I like it it. But who is the guy burning his clothes? Some random dude burning his ugly wardrobe?

I’ve always wanted to see a speech contest in which John Boehner and Glenn Beck each speak for 10 minutes on why they love America, so I can take and place bets on which one tears up first.

That’s Craig Sager. I’ve seen him as a sideline reporter for NBA games on TNT. He does baseball games, too, I think.

I’ll admit. I wanted to high five the ticket lady when she said “one way”.

It was dangerous for Holyfield to hug Tyson, who could have bitten his other ear!
