    For those who don't know, when John Oliver has an off-week from his brilliant HBO show he often posts a YouTube short. I figured it would be nice to have a thread to point these out to people.

    So I'll start with this week's short...a truly bizarre rant about...birds.

    Yes, for some reason John Oliver seems to REALLY hate birds.

    Yeah, I saw it last night. Possibly the worst I've seen from JO. The other shorts are somewhat better, but still almost feel like he's improvising.

    Usually, there's a point to them. This time, if there was I didn't see it.

    And usually, they're at least amusing, and sometimes very funny.

    He's British. They're prickly.

    I did not know this. Thank You, Rob. I miss him when the show is on hiatus.

    if you search "Web Exclusive" on the LWT YouTube channel, you'll see all of his off-week videos.

    The Fan Mail ones are the best.

    Well, I thought the bird segment was hilarious. It's not meant to have a point to it (and I don't think he really hates birds).

    Me, too. Nice to have a hiatus from the topical.

    The shorts are hilarious, except when sometimes he goes way beyond overboard :D

    Anyhow, he is returning this week!

    Anyone have a link to a video clip of John when his name was announced as winning the Emmy. My sister watches the entire Emmy show and said his expression showed surprise. I would love to see that and him going up on stage to accept the award.
