Title: Boredom at Work

This one is hilarious.

Closet full of throwing turtles killed me.

I guess there is a part 2 out there?  Eh, who cares, forget it........

This one could have used a bit with a Werner Herzog impression, can't remember if it's Kevin or Bill that does a good one, it was in one of the shorts many years ago.

This is definitely a good one. Here's the second part, if you can't handle the cliffhanger:

The actual films aren't bad. Apparently, "boredom" used to be a euphemism for depression.

Apparently, "boredom" used to be a euphemism for depression.

My dad could never bring himself to use the word depressed, he would use "down" instead.  And even that was hard for him to say about people.  So I think depression was something people that grew up before 1950 just refused to talk about.
