Five More Must-Have RiffTrax Shorts

When I made my first list of must-have RiffTrax shorts, I realized that I was have a very difficult time narrowing the list down to just five.  In fact, I ended up with over twenty.  I decided that I would just need to make more lists.  So, here are five more must-have RiffTrax Shorts.

1. Setting Up A Room

All I will say about this one is that it is twenty-seven minutes long.  Twenty-seven minutes.  Of setting up a kindergarten classroom.  And it's the funniest twenty-seven minutes you will ever experience in regards to setting up kindergarten classrooms.

2. One Turkey, Two Turkey

Made by the same lunatics behind At Your Fingertips: Grasses, this short was filmed to teach kids to count to ten.  As the guys point out, it also makes a good video showcasing animal abuse.

3. Join Hands, Let Go!

This one features a group of demonic children who bring chaos with them wherever they travel.  No, seriously.  I mean, I don't think they are actually supposed to be possessed, but whenever they stop singing, something wacky and/or chaotic happens, so what else are we supposed to think?

4. The Creeps Machine

A machine that tries to figure out what you are scared of, and it has a place that someone, somewhere, would try to stick their wiener in.  Don't do it though.  Also, be on the lookout for the copyright infringement!

5. Choking: To Save A Life

This short about choking people to save them has some amazing moments.  Most of them involve awkward demonstrations of dislodging food.  My favorite, however, x-ray footage of someone swallowing. It's mesmerizing.  And gross.

I know I am listing a lot of these shorts, but they are all worth your dollar.  Or in the case of a very small number of them, two dollars.  It is cheap entertainment that you can enjoy over and over again.

I'll have more shorts for you soon.  In the meantime, check out my first list of must-have RiffTrax shorts and the list of five must-have RiffTrax Video on Demand features.
