Six Minute Iliad

So forget Harry Potter -- let's focus on the classics. But who has time to just sit down and read the Iliad? DarwinCatholic presents, for your enjoyment, Garrison Keillor's Six Minute Iliad, starring Jack Nicholson, Elvis, Ross Perot, and Mr. Rogers as Odysseus.

GK: Thus did Achilles answer his old friend Odysseus. But wily Odysseus tried again.

TR (MR ROGERS): That's not very cooperative, is it? No, I don't think so. Mr. Agamemnon said he was sorry, and I think that a real hero would accept his apology and return to the battlefield and hack and hew and slay indiscriminate thousands and scatter their flesh for dogs and carrion, don't you? Hm?

The sound quality is a bit fuzzy, but who cares when the classics are this much fun?
