An age-old prank was efficiently pulled off in a second that nobody noticed coming — and even acknowledged within the second.
It occurred in the course of the newest assembly of Virginia’s Henrico College Board on Aug. 26, led by Chair Roscoe D. Cooper III. As public board conferences go, Cooper invited a pre-submitted checklist of city residents to talk on present points affecting their group. As names are known as, the individual could strategy the rostrum and share their feedback.
However this current assembly included an uncommon variety of names apparently absent on that day. Cooper introduced the names rigorously: Phil McCracken, Eileen Dover, Suk Mahdik, Ophelia McCaulk, Don Kedick and Wayne Kuhr.
Had the Cooper maybe learn the checklist a bit quicker, he might need realized the prank afoot.
Fortunate for these of us outdoors the New Bridge Studying Middle Auditorium in Richmond final Thursday, the Henrico College Board movies their conferences for posterity.
The minute-long clip of Chair Cooper studying the checklist has already greater than 663,000 views on YouTube — far and away exceeding their channel’s common view rely of just some hundred.
Viewers have been fast to level out the video’s similarity to the basic “Simpsons” bit, wherein Bart calls Moe’s Tavern asking to talk to patrons with names akin to “Mike Rotch” and “Anita Tub.”
“The audible query in ‘Phil McKraken?’” stated one fan of Chair Cooper’s supply, “that’s Moe degree straight man.”
“Like to see the youthful crowd getting concerned in group politics,” stated one other.
“The children that submitted these names are the way forward for the US I hope for,” echoed one admirer, presumably referring to younger followers of the 31-year-old animated collection.
