By now I'm sure you've seen snippets of those quickie Taiwanese computer animations that purport to portray various "scenes" from the Tiger Woods scandal. Not being a video game fan myself, I thought that they were clunky and sort of stupid, from what little I'd seen. But last night, Keith Olbermann did a sardonic 6 minute segment on his show about them, highlighting their unintentionally funny English-language translations, as well as the Taiwanese animators' "artistic" interpretations of various events and personalities. I really liked this. Since the subject isn't political, it also reminded me of Keith Olbermann's great years anchoring ESPN's Sportscenter with Dan Patrick.
