Yesterday, a coworker showed me a piece of video someone had emailed to her. The email said it was an Australian politician trying to explain away a oil tanker crash. Whoever sent the email thought the video was legitimate, but the comic timing in the interview was a little too good for an actual politician. So we dug around the Internet a bit and discovered that the video was, in fact, a sketch from Australian comics John Clarke and Bryan Dawe.

I must admit, I had never heard of Clarke and Dawe before last night, but there is a lot of video of them online, and it's quite funny. Their deadpan delivery reminds me of American comedy vets Bob and Ray.

Check it out. This clip is from the early 90s...

And this is a more recent clip on the subject of the Iraq War...
