YouTube Podcasting

Have you ever been browsing YouTube and found a video so hilarious that you just had to share it with your friends? Well, of course you're saying, "I can think of a million and one ways to do that."

It was very short and informative and it basically offered a nice solution to my slothful tendencies.
