419 scammers tricked into re-creating Dead Parrot Sketch

In this youtube, two West African scam artists are duped into re-creating Monty Python's famous "Dead Parrot" sketch. The men sent a "419" email to a scam-baiter (someone who tries to humiliate and waste the time of rip-off artists) who told them he was in a position to give large cash grants to promising film-makers, and advised them that the application process required applicants to submit their own Dead Parrot Sketch.

The thing is, these guys are actually pretty funny. They're certainly better at being comedians than they are at being rip-off artists. Link (via Kottke)
