"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  2. Eventually, yes. I nearly added it to the list but my karma hasn't been too good lately and I didn't want to tempt fate :-) Perhaps they'll make it into the next Downfall video.

  5. That's the best one of these I've seen in ages, GV, and I totally agree with Anonymous, above, the placing of that particular line along with his gesture was perfect.

  6. Agreed - it's one of the funniest. Who said there's nothing funny about Hitler? :-)
