Bud Selig Lops Off Frank McCourt’s Hand In Latest Taiwanese Animation News Video

Wow, such shocking cartoon violence. I felt like I was watching an Itchy & Scratchy episode for a second there. Or at the very least, an especially brutal Tom & Jerry cartoon, but for the life of me, I cannot recall Jerry ever chopping off Tom’s paw with a butcher knife and then sinisterly waving the blade in the feline’s face as blood spurts out of the cat’s stump, as MLB commissioner Bud Selig does to Frank McCourt in this especially entertaining Taiwanese animation news treatment. The hand-chopping-off of course symbolizes Selig preventing McCourt from further pilfering money out of the Dodgers organization, which is represented by a cookie jar. Makes sense. But yowsers, what imagery. But from what I have learned, if gratuitous violence is symbolic of something, that makes it alright. Crazy.

Nevertheless, there is so much Taiwanese animation goodness going on in this latest installment. I mean, how many times have you started to get kissy-face with a network just to have some guy appear out of nowhere and beat you with a billy club? Okay, never, but you can imagine what it would be like if it ever happened.

And in the end of the video, is the Dodgers organization represented by a transvestite hooker? Well, I guess if the fishnets fit…
