It’s been a long standing tradition on Youtube to upload foreign language clips with funny subtitles as a form of comic relief, perhaps the best known are the fragments from Der Untergang, a German movie about the last days of the Third Reich where Hitler is having one temper tantrum after the other. Of course the media felt duty bound to report that it was a realistic portrayal, anyways, it’s so blatantly over the top that it makes for excellent comedy.
Here is a clip of Der Untergang where Hitler is informed about Breivik’s manifesto.
I noticed the same reality bursting comedic potential when watching a video clip of day 33 of Commander Breivik’s trial where Ulrik Fredrick Malt gives his two cents on Breivik’s sanity, with Breivik having a hard time keeping his face straight. So I got inspired to to add some subtitles, nothing overly funny, but I encourage everyone with a sense of humor to create a video response with some hilarious subtitles of your own design.

The YouTube Team
It appears the Youtube moderators are as tolerant of satire as Muslims. I’ll have to look into finding an alternative to Youtube.
