Remember IM IN UR MANGER / KILLIN UR SAVIOR"? That was the genius work of internet animation funnymakers Matt Burnett and Ben Levin, aka For Tax Reasons. Today, they offer an all-new, all-awesome animated short as an exclusive for Boing Boing tv viewers, and by that, we mean YOU. Includes Steampunk, LARP armor, papercraft, Commodore 64s, MMORPGs, Final Fantasy, suicide cults, and meditations on bad UI -- some of the many things that make Boing Boing great.
