Or: Youtube videos as modern-day editorial cartoons.
Somewhere in this four-minute video of an ample Auburn fan being goaded into eating a ketchup-dipped lizard is a parable for all folks liable to say "War Eagle" every fifteen minutes:
You don't want to eat the lizard at first. Who would want to eat a lizard? But by God you've got to eat something and it's the only thing available that's not disconcertingly colored. So you try. And you can't. And you try again. And other southern college football fans start mocking you. And then you're handed a Mountain Dew -- which would be helpfully labeled "Malzahn" if this was actually an editorial cartoon -- and finally, finally manage to choke it down. You're not exactly proud. But you're on board.
