I’m just tired of him blatantly ripping off Morningwood all the time, you know? Oh whoops except not at all and that video was terrible. However that boxer-jab pre-race move, by my count, puts Kanye Puppet up there with Norman on the Great Wall Of Blog Video Puppets. One day we’ll make a list because everybody loves lists.
