For a buck, I'll take it.  ;) It wasn't nearly as absurd or ridiculous as some of the old MST3K shorts though, asside from the people turning into little kids.

I absolutely LOVED this short.  Funny as hell!  I laughed out loud constantly.  These shorts are great to watch whenever you just want a quick laugh, but you don't feel like committing to an entire movie.  I hope they keep doing more of these.  Bravo!

SHORTS ROCK!

You know, I was thinking... a baby does not typically carve his own initials into a desk right? Only young kids/teens do that kind of thing(usually). So technically, since the kid is a kid/teen, he is actually acting his age, isn't he?!

Maybe this film was shown to the faculty, not the students. 

It's really about how immature and creepy the principal was acting.
"Can I see your pencil?" is not an appropriate way to ask a student out.

It's a warning about what can happen to YOU, the teacher.

My fave bit -

Film: "....well you know what to do about the desk"

Riff:   "Hope it fits up there"  :clap:  :D ;D

I agree with a previous caller. These shorts are great for a wee few minutes of time-fillin' fun  :) I also have em running in the background as much as I would moozik these days.
Jesus! Bad waves of paranoia, madness, fear and loathing, intolerable vibrations in this place. Get out!

What is "Your own personal principle" a reference to?

Shorts are awesome, and this one is no exception.

I would like to see more full-length VOD's, though. That way, I can laugh and not patronize, say, Batman and Robin.
Oh bite me, it's fun!

Am I the only one who finds it extremely creepy how the principal offers the kid a knife?

Like one of those gangster movies where they find the snitch and put a gun on the table, leave the room and let him "take care of the problem" himself?

And btw....if Jim's original problem was that he didn't have a pencil to finish his test, why didn't he just use the pencil he knew was in the desk that he tried to open the can of stain with?   ???
