Good grief, the stupid advert for "Game-Stop" or whatever it was, was longer than the whole gopher video.

Sure wish I had a magic ball to see which vids are worth clicking on before I actually clicked and then sat thru the thing.

Of course the gopher was cute; all gophers are cute!

JEEEEEZ! Someone better start scouting a relocation place for this little cutie-pie before they launch any space craft , cause there is no way he would make it out of those flame throwing engine blasts at take off. I will be praying he has the good sense to flee when the rumbling begins. Hope he has an angel on his back around all those huge vehicles.
