I posted a different version of this "silent monk" video last year, but this year I chose this one, not only because you can see the stage straight on (last year's clip was filmed from the audience, stage right), but also because of the hilarious commentary on the actual YouTube web page: this was a skit performed at a Baptist church, but some people didn't seem to realize that it was all just a joke, a funny bit of lighthearted Christmas fun, and expressed some unintentionally humorous bits of unecumenical fussiness. And plus, those monks? They aren't actually singing and holding up their lettered signs at the same time; that's a recording playing over the church's sound system. And some of them have bosoms.
There's a really long intro on this video -- the action starts at 1:47. I hope you enjoy it -- I think it's so clever.
