Downfall - Annapolis



NB: Satire is often done with affection.

Outstanding job! It's too bad that the deadline for Academy Award nominations (for subtitling) has already passed. This piece would have been a shoe-in.

LMFMHO!!  TOO DAMN FUNNY!!!!

You are a cruel, cruel man. 

Counting down to the blacklisting of your blog inside the USNA network... 3...2...1

Oh, Well Done, Sir!    Well Done, Indeed!

The Salamander ain't about making friends, just making accountability work.

DUDE!  That was funny, no matter who you are, even if you stay in your PJs except when duck hunting.

xformed said...

Oh, yeah, and CDR Lippold thnking of taking on Senate Majority Leader!

Heather said...

Hilarious!!  

Byron Audler said...

Sala, you are one truly evil minded individual...and you exactly the kind of guy I like!

Wonder how long it's going to take for this little movie to go viral at USNA 8-)

LT B said...

I have to wait until I get home.  Can't catch it on the NMCI portal at work.  Curses!

Spade said...

I did like how "media" and "SS" were matched up, as well as "army" and "stalin".

Nice job shipmate.  I hope they don't kill this like they did the great "I am on a boat" video.

Byron Audler said...

Check it in the morning, after the word circulates among the mids...

How much single malt went into this fine satire...?

Eric Palmer said...

Funny but needs more duration time on each statement. Some of the words go by too quickly. Triming this up would make it perfect.

SNAnonymous said...

Amazing job sir.  I think it might not be long before your blog gets blacklisted by the USNA internet nazis (no pun intended).

Jerry Hendrix said...

Laughed till I cried, the Supe as Hitler, wow...

cdrsalamander said...

...but I am not saying he IS Hitler .... just like all the other Downfall parodies (including President Obama) it is all satire in good fun.

I know you get it - but some people are just too literal. 

cdrsalamander said...

Eric, are you an engineer?  If you read without speaking, it goes faster .....  :-P

cdrsalamander said...

Not enough.

AW1 Tim said...

Hey CDR, sir,... shouldn't that read "Retired O-5 in front of his laptop wearing his skivvies?"  It's a NAVY blog sir. Please tell me we still issue Skivvy shorts?

Heck, I'm so corrupted by Navalese I tell the why that "I'm going below decks" when I head to the basement.  Well, I mean, I DO have an oil-fired boiler in the "engineering compartment" 8-)

  But, yeah... brilliant work, sir. Brilliant work.

GBS said...

Retirement has its advantages...like loads of free time.

Nicely done.

Quartermaster said...

I resemble that remark 8-)

Eric is right, though. Allowing a bit longer to read would help things quite a bit. I read fast, but some of that got past me.

Otherwise, hilarious. BZ!

LT B said...

Aaaah, the Supe Mobile.  A Rempt special.  Good stuff CDR!!

cdrsalamander said...

Who has spare time?  I have to do this stuff while hiding from Mrs. Salamander. .... 

MR T's Haircut said...

lol eehh mm   Yes Dear I will take out the trash after I finish my "work"

demontjoie said...

Awesome funny. :)


Sadly, a lotta truth in there too. :(

I think a medical warning is in order before showing this video.  I might have ruptered my spleen laughing so much!
