August Ubu Hour

It's a variety-packed Ubu Hour for August, as we present some short politcal peices, a couple short movie mashups, and some surreal stuff as well...  including:

Bicycle Peice #7.. where Roy and Viv Ubu are desperite for ideas for scripts, and their main script writer is out riding a bike and stalking women.

Another Dead Baby Joke... Yes, it's yet another dead baby joke. Some might think the Ubu Hour is obsessed with dead babies, but it's not us! It's these various state legislators who are obsessed with dead babies, and what they are doing is not a very funny joke.

And also some stuff about the Zimmerman verdict, freedom, different kinds of fences, and more...
