Iowahawk's Citizen Gore

Iowahawk, the funniest man on the internet, strikes again with his own film production, "Citizen Gore".


Camera slowly zooms in between the security fence of a huge seaside mansion looming over the storm-tossed Pacific. Dissolve to a melting arctic ice floe, on which sits a distraught polar bear. As the camera pans back, we see it is a snow globe held in a man's hand, inside an opulent study paneled in Amazonian hardwood. Close-up of the man's lips, which whisper "Seagate." He drops the snow globe which crashes onto a priceless Persian rug in front of a roaring fireplace. In silhouette, a nurse enters the study and hurriedly covers his motionless body in a blanket. He expels one last mighty death fart, and is gone.

If you have ever seen Welles' classic you will catch the jokes, there are many of them, and they are wonderful. Some of Burge's best recent work.
