    Default Wellington parody video - Jacobs as Napoleon

    I'm putting this in the dressage forum because I figure Mr. Jacobs is mainly concerned with squashing the global dressage facility.

    This is a really short YouTube video: http://youtu.be/ekyqX--XyFY

    So funny and one of those 'sad but true' things. For some reason I picture Jacobs as Dr. Evil from Austin Powers, but Napoleon also seems fitting given the circumstances (crown-myself-as-emperor type of thing).

    I like the videos by horsyninja. I don't know the politics of the Wellington deal, but I laughed at the characters anyway!

    This thread and the article linked from the OP in the thread may help decipher things a bit:

    Dreadful being a member of the "hoi polloi". Sad to say I actually know how to muck stalls.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Donna : "Why are you a Republican?"
    Cliff : "Because I hate poor people. I hate them, Donna. They're all so poor, and many of 'em talk funny, and don't have proper table manners... my father slaved away at the Fortune 500 company he inherited so that I could go to Choate, Brown and Harvard and see that this country isn't overrun by poor people and lesbians. No... I'm Republican because I believe in smaller government. This country was founded on the principle of freedom, and freedom stands opposed to contraints, and the bigger the government, the more the constraints."

    I personally find it rather humorous too that Akon is being dragged into all of this (what a peripheral issue, right?)!! Maybe he could be the new figure-head of the opposition? lol. "Justice for Akon" or "The hoi-polloi for Akon" t-shirts perhaps?
