Net-Neutrality foes 'get served' with video
The Net Neutrality issue is a tough one to figure out. Why, remember what it did to poor Ted Stevens from Alaska? But the folks at We Are The Web have won one battle-the battle for hilarious, yet poignant, video. And they've won big. Aside from the catchy tune, what really makes the video stand out is that it stars some of the web's biggest cult phenomena, including Gem Sweater Museum Curator Leslie Hall, Jay Maynard (aka The Tron Guy), the Chinese lip-synching dudes, and the SpongMonkeys (before they were Quiznos commercial superstars). Oh, and we can't forget to mention one of my all-time favorite web, uh, characters: Randy "Peter Pan" Constan.

Texas dealers ask Ford to stop being so gay-friendly
