Somewhere Over The Rainbow



It's Sunday morning here in LA and I just can't stop smiling. Not because of anything I did. But because I can't get the spot-on, satirical review, of this Wizard of Oz video out of my mind.

Nobody does it better than the Onion (sorry 007 and Carly Simon fans). The "it" in this case is "satire."

When they take on a classic like the WIZARD OF OZ and critique it in modern day values and judgments, I'm on the floor. This review by Peter Rosenthal offers a humorous yet very sharp irony, exaggeration, and even ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

Hope you get the same reactions as I got. Enjoy. Oh, and it's safe for watching in any surroundings.
