Um, my posting of a particular video on another thread notwithstanding, it's not that complicated. Nor is it that clear.

But, you know, whatever.

In any case: Turn me on, dead man.

Does anyone remember that Las Vegas novelty act, Professor Backwards?

His schtick was speaking in reverse.

Poor man drowned.

No one understood his cries of "Pleh! Pleh!"

All politicians should be played backwards.

I would interesting to hear Bush, Obama, Clinton backwards.

Also newscasters, used car salesmen, lawyers and contractors giving estimates.
