You Can Put Anything on U-Tube

They are speaking about their U-Tube channels.
One says he makes about fifty bucks a month with his.
I am amazed, not seeing him as a singer, dancer, or entertainer.
What do you put on your channel? I ask him.

All of these fifth grade boys begin shaking their faces in high laughter
Making me pretty sure I wish I had not asked this question.
You can put anything on them he tells me. My first check was seven fifty.
Seven dollars and fifty cents? He shakes his head pleased.


What did you put on it? I ask him again.
Well.... All the other boys throw back their heads and laugh again.
One of them is a video about my forehead. 
What did it do? Pretty much everything. They are on the floor dying now
With pure silly laughter.

U-tube, here I come.

I think its a very clever topical choice to write about, and you being so inquisitive.

I am interested in EVERYTHING which was so difficult as I wanted to be an archeologist, a race car driver, a ballerina, and a movie star. So hard to narrow it down!

And the children of today "understand it" in a different way than I do. What they think is hilariously funny to me is often dull.

Some of this stuff is actually good for a laugh; love the animal videos on there and it's a great place, if you are into old movies.

I love the funniest cat and dog videos. My grandson and I howl together over them.

Yes, indeed. YouTube is Andy Warhol's 15-minutes-of-Fame idea come alive for everyone on the planet... True, some of the videos are a colossal waste of time---just like some newspaper articles, some books, some movies are... Hey, YouTube's the ultimate free market, and nobody's being compelled to watch. (I'm obliquely replying to that unsolicited, discouraging, non-Poetry-Soup sanctioned comment of Victor B. below). I'm with you, Caren. ~ gw

Personally I consider YouTube a waste of time and time for me is precious.

There are some amazingly funny dog and cat videos though; my 11-year-old grandson and I can eat a lot of popcorn laughing and bonding for an hour over them.

I know you do; and it will be no secret because when I get my U-tube channel, I will want to be as foolish as possible. It is a check for $7.50 after all!

Unbelievable! The Tube is loaded with Such nonsense. Tonight ALL comments are blocked as there is hate speech in progress! I would not put myself or my class on it. And you may need the parents OK to Put them on the tube.. Panagiota

We never put them on the tube; this is all done at home while parents are paying no attention whatsoever.
