I was watching one the other day where the repo-man was trying to repossess a car and the short owner did some acrobatic kicks and knocked down this big guy. I watched that videos a few times, because it was so funny. I then shared it on the #2 ranking website in the World. It is no wonder why Google would own YouTube.
