It's actually much better to read it than hear/see it -- it's easier to catch the subtleties. Click the "more info" link at the top right, in the gray area describing the video.

Thanks Calvacader! The video is funny but I can't sit through the whole thing - reading the transcript IS better AND I can use it as a teaching tool to boot  :Thmbsup:
