It's a Joke!!!

Folks, I am not american and I don't know this cast, but I can easily understand that it is a satire, it has not happend for real. So don't make conclusions on this. It's more fun to read your comments than the video itself.

Work is not the curse

To anonymous - comment 5, no Adam's curse was fruitlessness and wasted effort - thorns and thistles. Work came before the curse, as he was commissioned to work the garden, and make the earth as good as the garden.

Too far

Someone once told me; If you don't invest enough in your business, you can lose your business, but your family will always be there for you. But this, in my opinion, is taking it too far. wasn't working Adam's curse? Why should we be chasing it?

Priorities?

Talk about messed up priorities! When you give up your family for your career, you're headed downhill FAST!
