BTW, That last post was supposed to get you to think about how funny a steam-powered penis pump would actually be. It wasn’t supposed to offend.
i think “keep it brassy!” should be the official motto of steampunk. that was hilarious – thanks!
Enormously tedious and un-funny.
“Those clowns in Congress did it again. What a bunch of clowns.”
Guy needs to stop saying ‘uh’ every five seconds.
Regardless of whether the video pegs the needle on your laf-o-meter, you have to admit it does a great job of pointing out some of the ludicrousness of Steampunk.
I wouldn’t ask boing boing to stop covering steampunk, but perhaps it could apply a new rubric. As in, to be labeled “steampunk,” said hand-crafted lamp, computer case, penis pump or what have you must involve, in some way, steam.
You know who else said ‘uh…’ every 5 seconds?
… That’s right. Too many pioneers of the steampunk genre for me to list in this paltry little post, that’s who.
Truly, this man is the ultimate tool.
The idiosyncrasies of the DIY steampunk mode are certainly not at the expense of practicality. It’s hobbyists and dabblers. I’ve yet to see anyone lose their computer’s speed or ability to compute by moding it out with brass and marble or whathaveyou.
Are brass goggles and tailcoats hurting him somehow? He’s like a man who got turned down by a blonde cruelly cutting at blondes or somesuch. It’s baffling.
Head over to The Steampunk Workshop to see my video response – Jake.
I actually made it through half of this…
Funny? No… Fail.
Can this painful vid PLEASE usher in the beginning of the end of steampunk coverage on Boing Boing? Please?

How about letting it usher you away from BB for all eternity? If you’re not interested, don’t watch it.
Once again, one man’s ‘hilarious’ is another man’s ‘occasional smile inducing’.
It seems to me that the only offensive part of this video is its style
“…the Leonardo of jerking off.”
If I can’t find a way to work that line into a conversation in the next 24 hours then I have failed as a human being. Thanks, Cory :)
artis-ANAL uni-jar? I think I have found my new Star Wars name…
the man needs a much smaller pump jar .
funny ? insert loud buzzer sound here !
I don’t get it.
Good stuff. I tire of steampunk.
heh heh heh…I love it!
