Open Thread - Funny With A Budget = Epic Win

When you have a budget Over The Top funny can happen.

I'm bringing this to the front page from last night's comment thread, because it's the funniest thing I've seen all week.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog sends "robotic white women" to pose as Fox News reporters (yeah, no stretch there) on the Republican campaign trail. Camera crews clearly add credibility. And they've got a budget for side actors, costumes, and equipment that they use to huge advantage.

The last two minutes. Please note, the look on Rand Paul's face when a staffer tells him it's Fox News, and the look on the Christie voter's face while...well, just watch it.
