And they didn't even catch a clue when he gives them a PENCIL with eraser on it.

It's like "Jackass" for women.

I love how he looks at the camera and laughs at one point, as if to say, "Look how I'm putting one over on these silly kids."

Even though "suffrage" is from a Latin word which means "vote," it sounds so much like "suffering" that people are bound to be confused. Especially people today, who are--um--not exactly "critical thinking" (unless it's criticizing someone's appearance or singing).

Although the similarity between the two words did allow for the BEST School House Rock song EVER, "Sufferin' 'Til Suffrage!" :-)

That's what truly killed was the wink and nod he gives the camera, and how he keeps repeating over and over and over:

"Voting AGAINST women's Suffrage. AGAINST it."

Re: Exactly!
It is very funny, the way he keeps emphasizing "against". Unfortunately, something tells me he didn't have to cherry-pick the people shown on camera. We're in deep trouble...

Women's Suffrage
This was like Jay Leno's "Jay Walking" but only aimed at young women. I hope that there were just as many who said "no" and walked away!

Re: Women's Suffrage
I'd like to hope that they just didn't show all the "NO WAY"s because it wouldn't have made a good video ... but I doubt that that was the case.
