Screenshot of a recent post made by doujoux:

Leather bikers in gay bar described as underwater rabbits

The video is one that someone else on my friends list embedded in a post. I was able to see this post with the correct video by clicking "Post comment" and viewing the post itself. Oh, and some other videos got mixed up as well; I wondered at first why bradhicks was embedding a video of doujoux building a Morse code communicator and modifying it into a theremin (cool though that is!)

What I see, basically all the time, is that each URL I visit seems to maintain a list of flash videos and doesn't refresh it very often. So when the content of my friends page changes, the first videos loaded stay put as the posts move around them. Adding a "?foo" to the URL starts a new cache, but then I have to keep changing "foo" to something. Restarting the browser also works (sometimes).

I get the same problem all the time on LJ. It makes for amusement.

"underwater rabbits" is actually scene slang for, uh, whatever it is they are doing

They're singing a Broadway-style tune about BDSM.

LOL!!! That reminds me of this story that Gary Larson told once, where the caption of his Far Side strip got mixed up with a Family Circus comic. The result was the Family Circus dad, pointing to his children and going "EEK OG FLORP!" at them, while the aliens in the Far Side strip were telling their abducted humans it was time for bed or something like that.

Ha! I don't remember that one, but there were a couple times the caption got switched with "Dennis the Menace." One time there's a caveman visiting a fortune teller's cave, and the fortune teller says, "If I get as big as Dad, won't my skin be too tight?" Which makes no sense. But over in Dennis the Menace, Dennis is saying to his dad, "I see your little, petrified skull...labeled and resting on a shelf somewhere." XD

Even better was when The Far Side featured a family of snakes sitting at the dinner table with the kid saying "Lucky thing I learned to make peanut butter samwiches or we woulda starved to death by now." And in then Dennis and Joey were eating sandwiches while his mom talked on the phone, with Dennis commenting: "Oh, brother. Not hamsters again!" In Larson's own words, "What's most embarrassing about this is how immensely improved both cartoons turned out to be."

Then there was one time when the Far Side comic, showing a woman watching as an exterminator points out an infestation of treehouses, was printed with the caption from a different Far Side comic, showing a bunch of slugs worshiping a salt shaker as their deity. The result had the exterminator pointing at the treehouses, chanting "Eeny-oony-wanah! Eeny-oony wanah!"

I seem to recall Gary Larson's comment about that was that he got a lot of frantic letters from people saying "I don't get it!!!"

I kinda wish this sort of mistake would happen more often. Yes, poor Larson got way too many phone calls (email service hadn't spread far yet), but unintended humor can be especially funny.
