Click here for another in the endless line of Downfall parodies.  This time, Hitler learns that he was not accepted to a philosophy grad program.

My favorite is his dejected resignation at the end of the clip:

“Everything Betrand Russel said about the value of philosophy: freedom from the tryanny of custom and unbridled opportunities for true contemplation, it’s all a sham. … Philosophy won’t do anything but break you heart, crush your spirit, and make you an annoying person to be around at parties.  … Get me an application for Walmart.”

    Perhaps this will be the appropriate place to announce a get together at my humble home to watch Life of Brian and perhaps Holy Grail this Friday night. Pizza will be provided, and there are a few blankets and pillows around, so invite whom you wish. Interest can be put here or somewhere so I can gauge how much pizza to acquire.
