The Golden Crocoduck Award

A few weeks ago I mentioned Thunderf00t, a very smart guy who embarrasses creationists on YouTube. Here’s another channel I enjoy: Potholer54debunks. He gives away the coveted Golden Crocoduck Award to the creationist who spouts the worst bull, and after a heated round of voting, the polls are closed and the ceremony is now ready to be enjoyed. I laughed all the way through the opening song.

  2. I laughed especially hard at the sacrilegious choice of music for the big award reveal and end credits.

    Having just gotten home from a No on Prop 8 rally and watching the disheartening amount of public displays of hatred by passing drivers (thankfully highly outnumbered by honking horns, thumbs up, and peace signs), the connection between homophobia and creationist nutjobs is all the more fresh.

    Great video, and thanks for passing it along. Also very satisfying that Ben Stein couldn’t even get credit for THIS accolade. He needs to sink back into obscurity fast.
