I somehow ended up on YouTube recently watching a very annoying, ill-informed, and boring loudmouth do his best Glenn Beck immitation as he ranted about the safety police and their warnings about the dangers of woodworking. I'll spare you his video. However, because I was there, I stumbled across something called the Old Crankee Workshop, an obvious parody of Norm Abram's The New Yankee Workshop. I've posted the first two videos here. There are more on YouTube. I know that humor, and parody in particular, are a fine art and not everyone has the same tastes, but these videos brought a smile to my face, so I thought I'd share them.

Here's episode 1:


Here's episode 2:
