A Time For Decision. . .with Shoes On

The following is a video sent in by alert reader, Shelly.

Some say it is completely hilarious, others say it is completely bizarre - some say "both," but that's because they're fence sitters. Now it's your time to take a look and take a side:



This video is directed by Dean Fleischer-Camp (I think I went there as a Boy Scout once) and the voice of Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is none other than Saturday Night Live's Jenny Slate. She joined SNL in 2009 and I think she's got real talent. She's no Kristen Wiig, but she has talent. And I could definitely see Marcel the Shell with Shoes On going on to be a web series.

Well, faithful readers, what do you think of Marcel the Shell with Shoes On? Funny? Or bizarre? There's no sitting on the fence on this one! The line in the sand has been drawn.

I really don't know if there is a perfect word for this...I just don't know what to say. Speechless.

'We dont fight unless provoked." wonderfully written.

I am sitting on the fence. One minute it bugged me the next, I was cracking up. I did love the lint dog. "lint is a shells best friend". haha!

Thanks for the laugh:) Like Colton, I like the line "We don't fight unless provoked." I may steal it;)

That was so awesome. And I'm sorry, but it IS funny and weird. How can you differentiate? Sometimes things are funny because they're weird. Like "The Moon" song. You can't say that's not weird even if it's funny.

I love this little shell. My favorite was when the guy started laughing about the brush "That sounds really violent..."
