• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A website created in 1999 featuring satirical music videos animated using cut-outs of photographs. The site attained fame in 2004 when its video "This Land", which featured then-president George W. Bush and John Kerry, became a huge viral hit. Since then, they have released at least one current-events parody a year in the same style.

Their cartoons can be viewed here.

 We finally took out bin Laden.

Japan had one hell of a year. (A year!)

There were riots in Britain: "All rotten!"

Harold Camping: The Rapture!

2012 "Seers": Not yet, but it's near. (Next year!)


 The S&P blew up our rating.

The jobs market stayed in a slump. (A slump!)

The debt ceiling had us debating,

While Weiner just tweeted his junk.

    • Another verse:

 There were Occupy Wall Street protesters,

And folks who will surely be missed.

    • And here's one more verse:

 Quakes! Crimes! New signs!


 Santa: I'm running out of dough,

The bills ain't getting paid.

[camera cuts to Santa in bed with Ma Claus] I can't remember when,

The last time I got... [[[Beat]], camera cuts back to Santa grabbing dollar bills] paid!


 Baby Year 2008: Barrack [sic] defeated Johnny

So long to the far-right.

Now McCain has many houses,

But none of them are...

White men got passed over,

From Wasilla she was plucked;

When the maverick tapped a hockey mom

The press said, "What the..."

Truck bombs in Islamabad;

Bill Gates up and quit.

Putin stuck his chest out,

Told the Georgians to eat...

Ships were seized by pirates,

Ike and Gustav hit,

Johnny's honey had a baby,

But he said it wasn't...

HIIIIISSS-tory's now littered

With more famines, floods and wars.

If there's one thing I am grateful for,

It's that this job's now YOOOOUUUURS!
