Schoolhouse Rock that tells it like it is. Cory Doctorow:

Pirates and Emporers is a pitch-perfect send-up of the “Schoolhouse Rock” musical civics cartoons of the 1970s — easily the most-compelling educational materials aired on US TV — in which the dark history of US international policy (funding terrorists, arming atrocity-mongers) is set to jaunty music and simple animation.

This is extremely funny satire, using the framework of Schoolhouse Rock to instruct us about the differences between Emperors and Pirates. Also a very catchy tune. Made my day. [A Man with a Ph.D. – Richard Gayle's Weblog]
