Dr. Doom drops by the Golden West

Oh. My. Goodness.

A little while back, a dude dropped by the monthly Bar Bacon open mike comedy night at the Golden West Cafe (1105 W. 36th St.) dressed in full Dr. Doom costume. (Dr. Doom is the villain from the Fantastic Four). His routine was a stroke of genius: He told these corny "man walks into a bar" type jokes, but inserted members of the Fantastic Four into them ...

I'm not going to transcribe one of his jokes here. You've just got to see it. Just be warned -- the video has some vulgar, obscene material in it. These aren't PG-13 jokes, ladies and gentlemen. But the video seems to be catching on -- since it was posted in late June, it's gotten almost 22,000 views.

Here's a link to the vid.

Thanks to jmgiordano for the tip.
