Got me

OK, Glenn Beck got me (and many others, no doubt). I saw the below video come across my Google Reader, and I assumed it was real. So natch, I posted something critical of Glenn Beck. In fact, Beck was showing how people take things out of context and jump to conclusions by pretending to boil a frog. However, the joke may be on Glenn Beck because a commenter pointed out my error within a few minutes. So, perhaps blogs and the internet are much better at disseminating truth than we might think.

Still, it was a good prank and a good reminder that- gasp- not everything on the internet is true. Well played, Mr. Beck.
