Sorbet for the Mind

At the end of a long day that more often than not involves wrestling with the demons of ignorance and the gremlins of stupidity, your mind is funky with an aftertaste of liberalism so fetid it would gag a barn fly and the last thing you want to ingest is another steaming pile of asshattery. What you need is a palate cleanser of sorts – and what better way to freshen the intellect, the heart and the spirit than with a generous scoop of Sorbet for the Mind.

The comments posted for this Youtube video are a priceless window into cluelessness – the very same inability to recognize self-parody that led thousands of people to protest the now-defunct Bonsai Kitten website.

Lighten up, folks: it’s Shatner being Shatner and doing what Shatner does best when making a classic tune (in this case, Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody) his very own: totally butchering it and leaving the listener with an auditory mess so horrifying that you have to listen to it twice and then check your pulse to be certain you are still alive.

In this respect, he has once again triumphed: William Shatner has managed to gift us with another song production so f*cking horrible that it’s an instant masterpiece.
