And A Little Child Shall Lead Them

Back in my college days (which I spent in the It's-too-damned-hot-here part of the South), I paid occasional visits to the local fundamentalist megachurch, in the company of certain friends. None of us believed but we went to Fundie Church anyway because we were college students in the 90s, when Ironic Entertainment was popular.

So I've seen the megachurch megapreachers in real life, and occasionally on TV, and thus speak from experience when I say: this toddler's impersonation of the preacher is as near perfect as makes no difference.

But...but I thought demonic possession such as portrayed in The Exorcist was just a made-up fairy tale! Hm, guess not. ;-)

The part where he does the little hopping dance while the organ music swells just slays me.

We need a little Winton Dupree after that:

BTW That clip I link to is not really safe for work, language -speaking.

If I were to say, "I haven't actually seen many fundamentalist preachers in action -- instead I couldn't help picturing this kid with a little black toothbrush moustache, and it seemed to fit pretty well," would that totally Godwin the thread?
