this is hands down the funniest thing i've ever seen on this list.

sure, he's a dumb jackass who is just out jandek bashing to pass the time before he goes out gay 
bashing, but he really has the details down, which makes his tennis shoe satire quite incisive and 

in fact, the guy has obviously made a study of this.  i suspect that he is secretly a jandek fan, but he also 
realizes how absurd the whole phenomenon is and gets his kicks by annoying other jandek fans.
