    pretty sure they’re supposed to be comical

    Aiming for funny, but trying to channel John Green at the same time. End result, a little weird.

    I believe we have an inversion of Poe’s Law.

    Went to watch some other videos by this group, and noticed at the end of the “Why I Going to Graduations” one that they advertise, “We are going to be appearing at the Teach Them Diligently Convention in Nashville, TN from May 16-18! You should come! teachthemdiligently.net””We are going to be appearing at the Teach Them Diligently Convention in Nashville, TN from May 16-18! You should come! teachthemdiligently.net”

    First paragraph on the Teach Them Diligently’s website: “The Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention is a Christian homeschool convention that celebrates the focus of Christian home education — that is, the discipleship of children to glorify God. More than simply a convention about home education, we purposefully develop the themes of Missions, discipleship, and Christian parenting in addition to the traditional academic “how-to’s.” The site also has statements of faith that starts off with biblical inerrancy, and the vendors include A Beka (books and academy), Above Rubies, Answers in Genesis, Bob Jones University… you get the idea.

    So no, not a parody. It’s a genuine homeschool-supporting group that can be mistaken for a parody because it does include humor.

    I don’t know how seriously fundamentalist this kid can be, since there are clear references to Doctor Who and John Green–very geeky but definitely not QF-approved. I only watched about half the video though. He’s not very funny, but hey, he’s like 16–and I’m hardly his target audience even if I am a Whovian. (Not a Green fan though. Meh.)
