Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a parody...

...and it's probably the best parody I've ever seen. Hands down. If you've seen any film by Ken Burns, you'll get it. If you've seen Baseball or The Civil War, there are points in this film that you will cough up a lung laughing so hard. Here's the summary from IMDb:
In 1957, African-American astronauts found themselves unable to break the color barrier at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Undaunted, and on a shoestring budget, they formed their own space program, the "Negro-American Space Society of Astronauts" (NASSA). Told in documentary style satirizing Ken Burns' documentary "The Civil War," this comedic short traces NASSA's rise and fall with a nod to the true history of the Negro Baseball Leagues.

NSFW caveat: Don't play in the presence of anyone overly-sensitive to race-related humor or a smattering of rough language. Judicial clerks might want to wait until they get home tonight too.

Hat tip: Jonah over at NRO's The Corner.
