The Tipping Point of Madness

A friend showed me this video this weekend, and I laughed my ass off. Classic example of Pythonesque sketch comedy where a relatively normal premise is set up, followed by a gradual descent into madness...and then one final push off the cliff. Please enjoy "Business Meeting".

That's up there with "Jizz in My Pants" as being one of the only things on SNL that's actually made me laugh since maybe 1977.

Have not seen Jizz in my Pants just yet. I just might have to upon your recommendation. What gets me with this though is it slowly get more and more exaggerated, without seeming "over the top".

Funny thing though, a Muppet fan friend of mine who showed me this told me that no lie one of the rules in the Henson writing room was if they didn't know how to get out of a situation, one of three things happened. Either someone ate something, they blew something up, or penguins got thrown around.
