How not to be a session moderator at a conference

Leave the session immediately if this happens: Funny and Extreme Videos–Laughing Interview–Funny Video Clip–KillSomeTime.com.

From George Sessum by way of ALLIED by Jeneane Sessum.


UPDATE: the comment on Allied explains what they are talking about---diseases of the larnyx. It makes the video clip even more similar to some academic conferences that I have attended. That moderator did not prepare. It seems less funny now, too.

UPDATE II: According to gary turner, it is fake.
